This is a charming, relaxing place with equally charming and helpful hosts! The grounds are lovely, the cabana was simple and stylish and the bar was cool! A short windy drive to El Valle makes for a fun day out. The pool is very natural more like a concrete swimming hole...cute. The bed was comfy and the shower warm. There is no tv, but we were content to linger at the bar, then read and fall asleep to the soothing sound of bamboo leaves swishing from gentle winds. Wish we could've stayed longer

Stayed: February 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here as a family of 4 with two kids. The French owners are on-site and very helpful. Accommodation is basic but clean, adequate, and very reasonable for the great price. We were attracted by the natural pool, which provided a great respite from the heat. We had the pizza restaurant down the road deliver to our room, and Magali, the owner, blended some delicious cocktails in the hotel's cozy bar. Breakfast the next morning was fresh juice, coffee/tea, a generous tropical fruit salad, and homemade French toast. Very good value for $8. Be aware - cash only, credit cards not accepted.

We would highly recommend Cabanas los Colibris if you're looking for a stop en route to Boquette or Western Panama or a place mid-point between the beach and El Valle.

Copecito is a mere 24km (30 minute drive) away, on the road to El Valle. Cabanas los Colibris offers better bang-for-the-buck than the pricier inns or bed-and-breakfast places in town, provided you have a rental car. Additionally, when it rains in the El Valle crater, it is often sunny and dry a few miles down the mountain. The rooms are actually cabins with fairly basic but clean necessities, including fan, AC, refrigerator, a patio with hammock. Our French hosts, Magali and Nicolas, were very friendly and helpful in steering us to the "must do" attractions in the Valley. We hiked El Cerro Guaital, visited the week-end market and the Mariposaria (butterfly conservancy), ate at Santa Monica and Bruschetta. Los Colibris offers an excellent breakfast (well worth the $9 cost), and Nicolas mixes good cocktails. For lunch or dinner, there is an inexpensive and decent pizzeria within a few hundred yards (the young Italian owner is a cooking instructor in Panama City during the week, while his wife mans the fort, and he returns to make pasta in time for the week-end); take out or delivery are possible; another substantially pricier Italian restaurant, the Florentino, is also close-by.

Absolutely loved this place. Beautiful gardens, gorgeous little pool to get into after a hot day exploring and really lovely, helpful owners. The cabins are simple but lovely, and the breakfast is wonderful. I would stay again if I returned to Panama.

After a hectic two days of travel we were delightfully pleased with our accommodations and hosts. Lovely tropical surroundings, and well located for a trip to El Valle. We plan to return before leaving Panama!

Room Tip: Comfortable room, quiet, garden atmosphere, and immaculate.
