Valle Escondido Resort Golf and Spa

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was one of the most beautiful resorts we have visited - half resort, half villas and homes that can be rented or purchased - all surrounding gardens and a golf course. It has a spacious club center with pool, gym, and spa where we were able to workout and get good massages. The restaurant looks out on a brook running thru the property and gardens - and the menu was very good! The staff were all pleasant and helpful. Plus, we walked to center of Boquete easily and were able to enjoy local restaurants and shopping. A taxi back to the resort was extremely affordable. All in all - wonderful!

It is such a beautiful place it is just difficult to describe all around mountains a little river is dividing the whole area the living room is spacious for every five or six room there is a private pool changing water every other day the surround is jut undiscribable really perfect and beautifil place to spend a few days really recomendad

It is a pricey hotel, we payed $186 per night for 2 adults, inc. breakfast. First, they gave us a room without AC! Come on, it’s Panama and it is hot and humid. A hotel in this price range should have AC in all rooms!!! We asked and were changed to one win AC (but most rooms don’t have it, only a ceiling fan). Second: breakfast. It was very VERY basic. Scrambled eggs, toasts, 1 sort of cereal, oatmeal, 1 juice and fruit (pineapple, watermelon and melon). It should be WAY better. It was a motel like breakfast. The hotel was built around 10 years ago and it shows. It is clean, nice gardens, nice staff but it is definitely NOT worth $186 per night. Look for other options in the area. We drove by the town and hotel Ladera looks new and nice. There are plenty of B&Bs. Would definitely not stay here again. Very disappointed.

The grounds are beautiful and make a nice place to have a wedding. The spa experience was bad, basically just kept pouring oil on me and cancelled my sister's appointment all together. I don't think the woman giving me a massage has ever been trained. Food was not great, the service was polite but not friendly. This is a small town and they are definitely the nicest place.

Okay hotel, not great food. However, the real issue is the noise. They have outside events, weddings, parties, etc., that go on until all hours, even though guests have to sign a noise policy. It makes sleeping extremely difficult. I highly recommend booking somewhere else if you want a peaceful nights sleep.

This compound has no 'soul'. Swimming pool could not be used since kids have to be 14 years or older. First time ever for me, as a world traveler since 25 years, that you are only allowed one free coffee after you paid for breakfast. Even if you book for 3 people and pay for an additional bed for your child, breakfast is not included for the 7 year old. Rooms are clean. The garden is beautiful. But not worth the high price.

The hotel is one of the best hotels in Boquete. The facilites are very nice. Just make sure: 1. If the breakfast are included in toy package 2. The the use of the facilites (pool etc) are included. 3. If the room has air conditioner. Boquete has a nice weather in (January mostly) but sometimes is really hot)

Valle Escondido does not disappoint. Arouse your senses by breathing in the fresh the air & exploring the beautifully tranquil grounds in Boquete. Enjoyed a cocktail listening the sound of a babbling creek, while taking in the vibrant flowers & perfectly manicured grounds.

I debated if to rate it 3 or 4 points and I decided to award it 4 points, because I did not pay their full rate of about $300, but rather much less. Had I paid the full rate, I would have been deeply disappointed. I stayed in the hotel for 5 days while enjoying Boquete with the family. We had two separate rooms which they kindly found next to each other. The rooms were nice and nicely appointed. The bathrooms were simple, but clean and modern. The grounds are gorgeous, 5-10 min walk to the center of town max, which we did daily at least once a day. The outdoor pool is cold, so we never used it. We used the pool in the spa daily which is quite grand looking. It is also warm and pleasant. Kids can use it after 6pm, so it worked for us. There is also an adjacent hot tub. Since the place was pretty much empty, we had that all to ourselves after 6PM as well. In the hotel grounds there is a tiny pond where one can attempt to fish, ( they rent fishing rods) although I later learned that there are no more fish in the creeks in this area. There is also a well kept mini golf, on top of the regular golf course and we took advantage of that by renting the clubs at the store. Wi fi was available every where for free and was quite fast. Breakfast is a sour spot for this place. Food is not great. Choice is dismal. There is no option for a slice of bread or a croissant, even paying extra, forget a bread basket! Actually breakfast includes one drink: either a juice OR a cup of coffee. Not both! And the coffee is definitely not high end. Service is also painfully slow, so I would strongly recommend to plan accordingly if you have some activities scheduled in the morning. Overall a nice hotel that could provide a much better experience by reviving breakfast on all fronts.

Stayed 3 nights here in Feb. 2017. Lovely grounds and facilities. First room offered was cramped. Tiny bathroom, room door did not seal in frame properly. Was also on main path to restaurant. Second room OK. NO AC, but a nice ceiling fan. Quiet and clean. Restaurant is in a TENT. Dinner menu very nice. Service slow but friendly enough. Breakfast is a DISASTER. Full stop. Service poor. Food even more so. Flies on everything, and some foods seem to have been put out on multiple days. No variety and very limited selection. Service awful. Receptionist unresponsive. Rather finish his private call than talk to me. We booked this place because it looked the best online. We now know of better options.
