El Valle is filled with weekend homes for Panama City's old money elite. This home (which supposedly used to be in pretty tough shape) has recently been remodeled as a luxury boutique hotel with about ten rooms. Rooms are somewhat small but have high quality beds and linens. The bathroom however is quite spacious with a walk-in shower with two...

Best: - The "Pilón" room is modern, design and clean with a big bed. - Huge bathroom and shower. - They put lovely flowers in the room when we came back from a walk. - The flatscreen TV with cable channels has a USB plug so we could see our own TV series brought from our home country on a...

When we lived in Panama, Crater Valley was our favorite escape away from a bustling everyday llife in Panama City. The children loved the swimmingpool and the garden and as parents we could fully relax and enjoy tranquility and nature while simoultansely keep an eye on the children. We especially appreciated management who was always service oriented, friendly, attentative and...

This was my second visit to Crater Valley and the weekend was better then the first time. The entire property felt as though it was ours. I enjoyed walking through the exquisitely manicured gardens which have many hidden nooks to read, watch the birds, discover the many varieties of orchards nestled in the trees or just sit and meditate. The...

What a unique and beautiful gem of a resort! We could tour the amazing grounds and hear nature all around us, then retreat to our room with a warm shower, luxurious sheets and snuggle up and listen to the thunderstorm! We had great massages in the open palapa over- looking the pond ...listening to the frogs, birds and gently running...

What a great experience for us and the kids. The rooms are really nice, clean and new! The kids loved the pool and jacuzzi, along with the hotel grounds and playground. We felt like we were at a vacation house, instead of an informal hotel, with great service. We left a camera there, and Geysha immediately emailed us, and put...

Before checking in we were welcomed heartly and shown every single room to chose from. The rooms are really beautiful and rather large, although some...

What a pleasant surprise. We were SO impressed. This GEM has been recently upgraded and remodeled. PLUS: under new management! Let me start by saying that I had been hesitant to return after my last trip 2 years ago. What first impacts you as you enter the property are the incredibly expansive grounds. Green everywhere. This is a third-generation family...

I enjoyed my stay here so much that I started a Facebook page for them. Please visit Crater Lake Panama on Facebook and check out Malice the web series on YouTube! The only improvements I would recommend is having a stronger internet signal and upgrading the TV sets. Great value for about 90$ per night. Quiet, scenic, enchanting, and also...

“If you are a light sleeper get a room away from the large pond/garden area in the back. Lovely rooms, but the frogs are night owls. Stopped about 12:30am, but heard them again about 3:30am. Also check out the fan noise if you plan to use them. Ours were sleep disturbing.”
