Los Mandarinos is a boutique spa and resort set in the hills above El Valle. With Tuscany-styled architecture and an intimate atmosphere, Los Mandarinos is an ideal place to unwind in the highlands of central Panama.
El Valle is a small mountain town. It has a cool climate that’s a nice alternative to Panama’s coastal areas and a slow pace that encourages relaxation. Hiking and horseback riding can be done in the nearby forests. Travelers can also visit impressive waterfalls, shop for souvenirs at the public market, and sign up for a fast-flying canopy tour.
Los Mandarinos is an exquisite hotel set just outside El Valle. Detail oriented and ornately structured, this hotel offers travelers a comfortable place to stay. From the onsite Irish pub to the heated swimming pool, Los Mandarinos is pleasant and inviting.
There is an impressive array of accommodation options. All the rooms are spacious and well lit. They have tile floors, ceiling fans, and air conditioning. The bathrooms are large and equipped with a heated towel rack and toiletries. The hotel’s suites have bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs, and there is even one suite with a private terrace and outdoor Jacuzzi. A satellite TV comes standard, as does a mini fridge and coffee maker.
Guests are invited to relax at the hotel’s swimming pool or spa. The spa’s expert therapists offer a range of facials, massages, and body treatments. A popular option is the thermal circuit, which involves visits to the sauna, Turkish bath, and Jacuzzi.
Meals can be had at the hotel’s O’Pedro’s Irish Pub. Inspired by traditional Irish taverns, the pub serves Irish classics like shepherd’s pie and fish and chips, as well as traditional Panamanian food. O'Pedro's has several flat screen TVs, a large wooden bar, and an outdoor terrace. There is a fine selection of domestic and imported beers, wines and liquors.
Los Mandarinos also offers guests use of its meeting rooms. There are three rooms available, the largest of which can accommodate up to 150 people. The rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including high-speed wireless Internet, video projectors, and a sound system. Catering from O’Pedro’s Irish Pub can also be arranged.

We enjoyed Los Mandarinos. It was very beautiful and the staff was so helpful and friendly. We would have stayed longer if we could. It was a wonderful experience.
