My wife and I traveled to Panama for a group event (running in the mountains) and wanted a bit of time to see and experience Panama. A co-worker suggested the Coconut Lodge and she didn't undersell it one bit. The location is not the best, but Nancy and Mike are more than willing to make sure you can get to where-ever you want. The guided tour of the city and the canal was great, and actually seemed a bit cheaper than the on-line tours I had seen.
So what really makes the Coconut Lodge ideal? Nancy and Mike (and the rest of the staff, including the three very friendly dogs) to start with, the quiet, relaxing setting, the very comfortable room(s) (we were in the Café con Leche room), the salt water pool to relax in, and Mike's cooking. True to their word, breakfast - with Mike's home-smoked bacon - was robust enough to stay with you most of the day, and the multi-course dinners were exquisite!
Should we ever return to Panama, the Coconut Lodge will be on the top of our list as a place to stay!
