We only stayed here for one night as we had a car rental and were intent on seeing as much of Panama as we could. We enjoyed our room (#3) and the common area and the library - we ended up being the only people staying there, so had the whole place to ourselves. We found all the staff very... More

Agree with the positive comments from the previous reviewers. Stayed a total of 5 nights. Staff was uniformly friendly and helpful - although a couple had limited English skills. But between them and my limited Spanish, we managed to communicate. We ate here 4 nights, and the food was uniformly good. I think on some if not all the nights,... More

Stayed two nights. We were in Gamboa for the birding, which was great! The home from the US canal era was wonderful. We stayed in an upstairs room and it was comfortable. Jorge and Oswaldo were great hosts and we appreciated the extra early breakfasts to get us out birding early. We ate 2 evening meals there as well which... More

This is such a lovely place to stay and enjoy the town of Gamboa. Osualdo and Jorge were so friendly and helped ID backyard birds, carried luggage, and served meals. Smiling, shy ladies prepared delicious meals that were served family-style, and we enjoyed conversation with other birders. The staff was incredibly helpful in arranging pre-sunrise breakfast for our early birding... More

Your B&B was delightful. We really enjoyed it! My friends and I stayed in the upstair rooms and while simple were very functional and comfortable. I also want to give a big shout out to your staff at the B&B, especially Osualdo! He was so helpful in identifying birds and helpful with any request we had. Jasmin and Aura served... More

Gamboa is a world away from Panama City - ideally you'll be there with a car. My husband and I wanted to have a quintessential "old canal days" style experience as well as be near the best birding in Panama - and our three nights at Canopy B&B didn't disappoint. Reservations were easy via lots of emails with the Canopy... More

We stay at the Canopy B&B for several nights in one of the rooms on the 2nd floor. The room we stayed in was clean and of average size. The bathroom is larger than I expected with a big shower (larger than a normal size bathtub). There is only the bed and desk/chair in the room, so it’s pretty basic.... More

Stayed here with a group of friends for 2 nights and it was perfect for a relaxing getaway. Jen and the staff are fantastic. This is a very quiet B&B with good service, good food, and good accommodations. Bring a game, enjoy a book, or go for a nature walk. Be sure to try the local fondas and check out... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Canopy B&B. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Nice views of the mountains. Well maintained property, our room was small but very comfortable. Breakfast was included in the room cost and dinner was provided for an extra cost. The only other place to eat was at the Canopy Tower Eco-Lodge. Town of Gamboa... More

I was really looking forward staying in Canopy Bed & Breakfast, but it turned out to be a big disappointment. I paid 133 dollar plus 10 procent taxes for 1 night in room number 2 downstairs. The room is very dark and smelled terrible - very, very musty. The floor in the bathroom was dusty - It felt like the... More
