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

Canopy Lodge was the the last place we stayed on our 3 week package tour and it definitely has the most "luxury" feel--large, comfortable rooms, beautifully laid out grounds along a creek with nice swimming area. It is located just outside of El Valle, a favored area for vacationing Panamanians and ex-pats, in part because of the refreshingly cooler climate.... More

Our second trip to this Lodge, this time with a group on a Birding Tour. Absolutely LOVE everything about this special spot! The rooms are very spacious & comfortable. The open aired dining room & food served family style--INCREDIBLE! The birding in the surrounding area is second to very little! The staff are friendly & so accommodating...Tino you're doing an...

Canopy Lodge is nicely situated in a natural location along a stream above the small town of El Valle in central Panama. This is a great location for birdwatchers and naturalists with guides and transport available. The staff are excellent and the delicious food is is served in an open location with bird feeding stations nearby (this will tell you... More

Spent an outstanding butterflying trip in May. Jenn and Tino provided outstanding guiding. Could not have been better. The lodge is an excellent choice for what it is. Not much I can add to the other reviewers. Canopy Lodge does provide a nice happy hour in the lounge area, usually beginning around 5 PM or so. $3 for wine and... More

Set in beautiful informal gardens, this lovely lodge is reached via a red Japanese pedestrian bridge across a small river that runs through the grounds. Rooms are very spacious with everything you need to watch the wildlife that surrounds you. Food is great, service fantastic & the atmosphere is relaxed but with great attention to detail. Take advantage of the... More

I booked a 7-night stay at this incredible lodge, including daily birding tours. Everything; accommodations, food, staff, tours and guides were outstanding! I had Danilo (I called him Daniloito since he is Danilo's son) for my tour guide and he is outstanding. My most often comment to him was "how the heck did you find that!" I saw so much... More

In 2011 I visited Canopy Lodge with two friends. Trip Advisor does not go back that far, so I had to select 2014. It was terrific! It is a beautiful, elegant lodge, sparkling clean, with a bed I wish I could have brought home. The food is really home-cooked, delicious, and eaten outside under a roof. To my delight, there...
