My sister and I stayed at Coconut Lodge in their casita for three nights in May. Once we walked into the B&B it was even prettier than the photos and you felt that you had entered into another world after driving from the airport. It was very tropical and our hosts, Nancy & Michael, and their daughter Melissa, were very welcoming. In the morning when we could see more of our surroundings we fell in love with the sights and sounds of the birds and all the little critters and we felt as if we were transported into a little piece of paradise. The surrounding gardens around the pool & spa area were well maintained with beautiful flowers everywhere. We went up for breakfast and could not believe the feast that was presented to us. First they start you off with coffee, juice, & a yogurt parfait, as well as the freshest and tastiest local mangos, papaya, & pineapple. Next, Michael added to that his special smoked bacon, which he does himself, with scrambled eggs. Everything was top notch. We didn't realize it until we read the sign, that they also serve dinner each evening, so we immediately signed up for that and it was delicious. The ambience made it perfect and we got to interact with other people from all parts of the world.
Our first day we were to meet a realtor who at 1144pm the previous evening canceled her appointment. Nancy readjusted her schedule in order that we receive an overview of the city. This was extremely accommodating of her, above and beyond as far as we were concerned, and so very much appreciated by us.
If you want to be away from all the noise, than this is the place to be. One thing to keep in mind is that taxis are more expensive because it is on the outskirts, but if you rent a car or just don't want to go anywhere and relax, it is a great place to be. Thank you for making our stay an enjoyable first time experience to Panama.
