The grounds are beautiful. The rooms are insanely large and comfortable. The food was excellent for all the meals. The area had fantastic weather in January. It didn't rain and it was very cool. Our guide for our time at the Canopy Lodge was Moyo Rodriguez with help from Danilo Rodriguez on a couple days. Moyo was amazing at locating... More

We have been blessed enough to travel to many beautiful places in the world. The Canopy Lodge in El Valle de Anton in Panama is one of the prettiest. The flora and fauna can't be beat. The gardens are full of beautiful flowers that attract birds. There are feeding stations that attract birds, butterflies and mammals.The food is excellent. The... More

7 days of pure heaven. Excellent food, unbelievably good birding guides, a gracious host, cool temperatures and a plethora of exotic birds and flowers. We were up very early every day and on the road in either comfortable vans, trucks or 4-wheel drive vehicles. There were 10 in our group from various places including NYC, Canada Scotland and Florida and... More

We booked the Lodge as part of a birding package recommended by friends who have also stayed here? (We also stayed at the sister site-Canopy Tower a part of the package and did a separate review.) We were transported to and from the Lodge by a safe and conscientious employee who drove sanely through some crazy traffic in Panama City... More

It's a nice lodge in a wooded area outside the town. Food served in the hotel is pretty good. People are pretty nice in general. But if you don't speak Spanish, communication can be a problem at times. There are some excellent birding opportunities around the lodge.We spent four days birding in the area, mostly on dirt roads. A nature... More

We stayed here on the second part of Mass Audubon's trip to Panama, following a week at Canopy Tower. The Lodge, although not as unique a place to stay as the Tower, has bigger rooms and is a little more "cushy" stay. The food was good, our guides, Carlos and Danilo were great, and our overall stay was excellent. Where... More

I chose to take advantage of the Canopy Lodge 10th Anniversary Special rate (which was offered in September of this year only) for the week-long "Birds of Canopy Lodge" birding package. Even though it was the "rainy season," my stay was exceptional. First, special words for the staff, from housekeeping to the laundry to the kitchen to the guides. The... More

My husband and I have differing opinions on this hotel. He admits that the service was great, food was great, the room was great, the grounds were great, the guides were great but he does not feel that the price ($420/night) was "reasonable". I will admit that, for a non-birding, non-butterflying person, this may not be the place to stay... More

Our birding group spent two nights at this beautiful spot in El Valle. The rooms are large, spacious, with an open feel. The food was wonderful, the staff friendly and helpful. The birding in the area was outstanding and we added many species not seen in the Gamboa area. Thanks to Carlos for spotting and hearing so many birds. Am... More

We were transferred to Lodge from the Canopy Tower after a week of birding. Just wish we could have stayed longer than 2 days. Would love to go back for a longer period of time. Reserved a corner room with a king bed. These rooms are huge. Great packages just like Tower property but we just did not have enough... More
