I find it a bit difficult to rate this B&B as there were things we really liked and some that things we didn't. All things considered the balance swings to the positive side of the scale for us, but that may be different for others. Related to the price, I still give an average overall rating. Positive: - nice location... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and were very comfortable. There was highly effective AC in each room, the common area was bright and welcoming, and the breakfasts were very good, with several hot options each morning, served buffet-style. You can request an early cold breakfast between 5 and 6am, or a hot breakfast after that. The staff was very... More

This B&B is wonderful. The place itself is a travel in history. The staff are highly accommodating, serving us early breakfasts so we could be birding at first light. The upstairs rooms are far better and worth the extra cost. While the staff knew little English, they communicated well. The public area is very attractive and we used it constantly.

The Canopy B&B is one of 3 properties in the canopy report family, 2 of which are located in Gamboa. The b&b has pleasant, clean rooms and a friendly staff, though English is not well spoken. The breakfast is fine. And you'll see lots of birds at the backyard feeder. The common room is cool and comfortable. The canopy tower... More

After three nights at the extraordinary (and pricey) Canopy Tower we transferred here ($7 added onto our canopy tower bill for the transfer) for two nights for a more economical alternative. After three nights at the Canopy Tower we knew what was around and in fact the B and B is a lot closer to some of the best Canopy... More

I was a bit aprehensive initially as this is a house on the edge of a housing development, but I in the end I was very satisfied with our stay. We arranged for dinner at the BnB every night and the food was simple, but tasty and plentiful. Definitely worthwhile. We didn't have a car and this was very limiting... More

We stayed four nights in this b&b and found it extremely overpriced for what we got. On the plus side the room was very clean, the bed comfortable and the bathroom spacious and clean. No more than I would expect at these prices. There was no private outside space to relax just a bench overlooking the small garden. The food... More

We travelled around Panama for almost three weeks. The Canopy B & B was the best place we stayed. Great hospitality, good food, great location, clean, fantastic garden. Don't forget to also visit pipeline road.

The room was clean and quite a nice size, we also got a speedy refund for our last night there after we decided to leave after 2 nights instead of 3.
