We stayed for 2 nights in June 2012. Our room looked new (I believe the hotel is only a year or so old) with comfortable beds and a beautiful bathroom. And A/C! We slept very well. Ivan was a wonderful host who helped us with organizing our surfing lessons.
Also, Ivan made the reservation process very easy by responding quickly to my emails. This was not the case in many of my inquiries to other places in Panama. He even sent me an email to confirm our stay a couple of weeks prior to our arriving.
I definitely recommend the Manglar Lodge in El Palmar.
