I was extremely happy with my stay at the Coconut Lodge Panama. The owners Nancy and Mike and their daughter's Melissa and Caroline are wonderful people and great hosts. The property is lovely and peaceful and the food and service is great. Anyone who visits this property will have an unforgettable experience and will go back. We will.

I was able to spend another wonderful visit to Coconut Lodge in August. I have to say returning made me feel even more at home with Nancy and Mike, Melissa and Caroline. It truly was coming home to friends. My girlfriends and I relaxed around the pool, had a blast with Captain Carl on the Jungleland tour and even enjoyed our trip to the market with Nancy. The meals were fantastic again and we thoroughly enjoyed the company of our fellow travelers from Spain, Germany and Hungary.

Congratulations to Coconut Lodge on their #1 status! It is well deserved!

Me and my girlfriend were more than happy with this B&B. Nancy and Mike, the owners, and their two daughters, were so friendly with us. We had great conversations with them and were able to learn a lot about Panama! They also offered us great activities during our stay that were really worth it. The room was also very lovely, clean and comfortable. If I happen to go back to Panama, I will definitely go back there for a longer stay. I would recommend this B&B to anyone, you can't be disappointed!

Nancy and her family are the most pleasant, welcoming and yet discrete hosts one could possibly have. Already during our first contact, a phone call to get the directions, Nancy was very helpful and friendly and asked if we want to have some dinner upon our arrival - we felt well taken care of and welcome from the first second.
When we arrived at the lodge, we were happily surprised: the lodge as well as the interior design were perfect. Our room was spotless, spacey and after two weeks of backpacking it was a perfect change. Dinner was prepared by her husband and what can we say: its the best food we had in Panama.
Nancy equipped us with advice, cell phones, umbrellas and drove us into the city center where she also collected us and took us to a mall. Hence, also the fact that the lodge is in pretty, quiet area outside buzzing Panama city was not an obstacle as Nancy was ready to take us downtown whenever we wanted with her private car.

Being in our late 20s, it was just the perfect amount of pampering and freedom and we would definitely recommend some days with Nancy and her family!

Also, we had wonderful conversations with Nancy and her family and it was clear from the very beginning that the coconut lodge is a project lying at the heart of nancy and her family.
Again, Nancy is a perfect host, the lodge is wonderful and I would come back at any time. Thank you, Nancy!! :)

Because of the generous lay-over options through Copa Airlines, we had the opportunity to stop in Panama for three days from Asuncion to Chicago...and I am so glad we did. My two friends and I stayed at Coconut Lodge after a mission trip to Paraguay. One of my traveling companions had already experienced the wonderful hospitality of Nancy and Mike and she was more than happy to share the experience with us. We stayed in the Cafe Con Leche room and even with huge suitcases, a duffel full of eyeglasses, and a cot, we had more than enough room. Nancy arranged a Lake Gatun tour with Captain Carl (highly recommend) and her knowledge of the area and friendliness to share her experience made this trip feel like we were staying at a friend's home. Mike crafted the most delicious meals for us and was always asking if we needed more of his amazing pancakes in the morning. Nancy picked us up from the airport and saw that we were taken care of very well. They were full with guests from Hungary, Germany, Spain, and Switzerland, so it was wonderful to meet so many new people and converse over wine and a deliciously prepared meal at the end of the day. The grounds are impeccable, though still under construction, and the rooms are clean and perfectly decorated. The swimming pool was wonderful and I didn't have any issue with any bugs...except for one rouge spider that found himself in our room one morning...but you are in the rainforest with monkeys in the trees in your backyard so no complaints here. I love this place and I am eager to share it with my husband soon!

When my wife discovered the Coconut Lodge on Tripadvisor, with all the glowing comments, I immediately thought: “juega vivo.” But the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor are both true and well deserved! This, in my opinion, is truly incredible. I love Panama—especially the city and its surroundings—but usually I’m pleased to simply find a reasonably priced, somewhat clean and secure place—in other words, some place that is just “adequate.” But the Coconut Lodge has created a new standard of excellence for B&Bs in Panama City. (The Mandarin Oriental of B&Bs!) Congratulations to the Pop Family!

My wife and I and 3 boys stayed at Coconut Lodge the first two nights and last two nights of our two week Panama vacation. Like other reviewers note, the whole family at this BnB goes out of their way to make sure you are taken care of, and getting the most out of your whole stay. Just a few examples: Melissa took us to the Amador Causeway to dinner one night, a fairly long ride, and stayed and helped us order dinner (our Spanish is limited). Melissa also took us on a very nice tour of Casco Viejo and the Miraflores locks where we got all the information that a big tour would get, from a very knowledgable guide, but for just the 5 of us. Mike went out of his way to take me to the Supermarket so I could buy a few supplies for our stay. The whole family gave us advice for our drive into the interior, from where to stop and eat to how to deal with police roadblocks, and more. These and all other of our requests, from using their tennis racquets, to holding breakfast for our late sleeping teenagers, to ordering pizza for us, to keeping the wine flowing at dinner, happened very quickly without a moments' hesitation. Add this service level to the beautiful gardens, pool and rooms of Coconut Lodge, and the excellent food, and it will be hard to stay anywhere else in Panama city. In fact, when we returned from our 10 days in the interior to spend our last few days in PC, we were met at the airport by Melissa and Nancy at it really felt like we were coming home. We laughed with them that they actually were holding their Coconut Lodge signs up for us! (turns out they were meeting other incoming guests as well). And speaking of the other guests, we met several different travelers from different parts of the world and with different interests, and we really enjoyed chatting with them. All had a zest for travel and a real knowledge of and appreciation for great accommodations and great travel experiences, and Coconut Lodge really helped make our experience in Panama a great one.

“The whole family at this BnB goes out of their way to make sure you are taken care of, and getting the most out of your whole stay” Your statement forms the foundation of what we believe in at Coconut Lodge. Your words encouraged us that we are on the right track and that our efforts are recognized. We strive to provide a Home Away from Home. To read your words: “It really felt like we were coming home” was very rewarding. We are glad that you could make your stay at Coconut Lodge a great one.
