We had the pleasure of spending four days here. It's clean, comfortable, and well maintained. Dennis and Mireya were very knowledgeable of the area, people, and wildlife. It's close to the markets, restaurants, and all of the attractions El Valle has to offer. I highly recommend Cabanas Potosi!

I came to El Valle intending to stay 4 nights. I've booked 3 more, remaining at Las Cabanas. With one possible qualification, I feel as though I'm in Paradise and I could not have picked a better place to stay. Dennis and Mireya are the owners and hosts. CP is a small home with 4 rooms, set in a lovely...

Had 5 amazing days here. The garden is incredible, they do a beautiful job with all the flowers and plants. Attracting lots of birds, and a fun fact is that all 4 rooms have different names depending on what animal you see most. We stayed in room 2 with lots and lots of hummingbirds that we could see right from...

A very nice cabana. Beautiful grounds and great hosts. Potosi is a nice and quiet place to stay in El Valle Anton. The host is helpful and drives you to restaurants if you want. It cost one dollar only pp. they spent that money for schools in the neighborhood. I stayed with my daughter and it was more than comfortable,...

Everything all the reviews say and more. It would have to be said to be minimalistic but look at the price. Just the place to relax and unwind. Gracious hosts and the sound of nature. It had all we needed and we left more at rest than when we got there!

I have to say that the location was spectacular, but the fact that the owners were not present put a slight twist on our stay here. From all of the descriptions, I thought we would have an easy time cooking our meals using the facilities as described in the gazebo. However, there was only a set of plastic plates and...

The owners are great (American and Panamanian couple that both speak English and Spanish). They invited us to join them for their anniversary get together in their home with friends and family, guitar music, food and wine. While I was there, I got sick and Mireya made me some tea with herbs from the garden. They are well known and...

We had 5 nights here. The rooms are basic but have everything you need: hot showers, fridge, comfortable beds, electric fan (tho the through flow between the windows was enough for us), hammock, free WiFi near the office (reasonable signal) outdoor dining table and a great sink and washing line at the back of each cabana. Coffee or tea each...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cabanas Potosi is located in the second largest shield volcanic crater in the world. The cabins are family owned and offers bird guided tours with one of Panama's best bird guides, Mario Bernal. The valley sits at 3,000 (1,000 Meters) above sea level and is the home of over 300 species of birds plus migratory birds during October and March. Many family owned restaurants are located with walking distance of the cabins. You can get to El Valle by traveling by bus on the Pan-American Highway from Panama City, Panama. The trip takes about two hours of which the last 18 miles (30 Kilometers) offers beautiful view of the mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Come and visit us soon and wake up to a symphony of birds every morning. ... more   less
