“Wonderful address and owners”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

What a nice place to stay and what a wonderful owners. In a green residential area at the edge of Panama City. If you do not have a car, Nancy, Mike or daughter will arrange transport. Impressive breakfast, comfortable and clean rooms. Definitely in our personal top 10 of B&B' s ever visited.

Room Tip: Rent a car when visiting Panama. It is easy and saves you a lot of time in transport, but avoid rush...

Considering the infinite amount of B&Bs in the world (more than 261 in Panama alone), it is truly an honor to be considered one of the top 10 B&Bs ever visited. Thank you for your comments: “What a nice place to stay and what a wonderful owners. Impressive breakfast, comfortable and clean rooms. Definitely in our personal top 10 of B&B' s ever visited.” Thank you for granting us such an honorable position.

My friend and I recently had two stays with Nancy and Mike, one at the beginning of our time in Panama, and a couple of nights at the end. We felt truly blessed to have found such a lovely, peaceful oasis in the chaos that can be Panama City. We stayed in Casa Bambu, which was spacious, private and immaculately clean. This unit has one of the best bathrooms we found - double sinks, tile floors and nice bright lighting. Nancy and her daughter Melissa were extremely helpful with transport and information about Panama City, and cheerfully completed some agonizingly early transports - one to a parital Canal Transit Tour (highly recommend it!), and one to the airport. Mike is a great chef, and served up delicious meals, taking into consideration any dietary preferences., The food was excellent quality, well prepared and beyond ample in portion size. This B & B is in a quiet residential neighbourhood about 20 - 30 minutes from the downtown of Panama City, but close to Parque Soberania. Nancy and Mike make you feel like part of the family instead of a paying guest, a nice change from so many hotels these days. I would have no hesitation in recommending this B & B to anyone. You will not regret your choice!

We stayed for 5 nights in this amazing bed and breakfast and we had the time of our life. Nancy and Mike are the best hosts you can imagine, they will do everything for their guests. We really felt like home in their beautiful place and we they made us feel like we were part of the family. We enjoyed the delicious food Mike made us every day and Nancy is the best host we met during our 5 months traveling. We will definitely come back to this incredible b&b and we would recommend the Coconot Lodge to everyone we know. This was an experience like no other and we will never forget it!

“Nancy and Mike are the best hosts you can imagine, they will do everything for their guests.” There is nothing else you could have added to make our day. All we can say is.....A great big thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Your comment that we were the best host in your 5 months of travelling is the best comment anyone could ever hope to hear. Thank you for stating that you will be back. We hope as you say that we can succeed in repeating this statement: “we would recommend the Coconot Lodge to everyone we know. This was an experience like no other and we will never forget it!” We are the ones who will never forget you!

We recently returned from our amazing trip to Panama and Coconut Lodge was our little treat at the end of our holiday. After staying in 8 different hostels in 15 days inc. 2 nights on the beautiful but very basic San Blas we were exhausted and looking for something a little more luxurious and relaxing for our last 2 days, and we are sooo glad we choose Coconut Lodge!!

With Nancy's amazing hostess skills and Mike's delicious food we felt really well looked after! When we arrived they were fully-booked due to a blip in the booking systems, but they went out of their way to make up their spare guest room and then offered us a free bar to compensate!

Both of us can honestly say we have never experienced better hospitality in any other place we have visited, even at swanky 5* hotels, and we both said that Coconut Lodge wasn't only one of the best places we stayed in Panama, but one of the best places we have EVER stayed at.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, we wished we could have stayed longer!!

As the New Year rolled in, we began to think back of some extra special guests we had during 2012, of which you were one. We were blessed to have you surprise us with your presence. Thank you for the great comments with regards to the hospitality. Thank you for the gift of your words. No host could hope to aspire for more. You honored us with your declaration. Thank you for sharing the following statement with other TripAdvisor travelers: “we both said that Coconut Lodge wasn't only one of the best places we stayed in Panama, but one of the best places we have EVER stayed at.” Hoping we will one day again have the honor of greeting you.

Although I could stay only one night, it was a great experience to stay in coconut lodge and our hosts gave us such a warm and friendly welcome that I hope to come back there soon. It is very relaxing to be away from the city center and enjoy a stay in this beautiful setting giving already a touch of "jungle" to visitors.

The only sad part of your message is that you were only able to stay one night. We are pleased you found the welcome to be warm and friendly and that the location was relaxing, away from the city center but in a beautiful setting with a touch of jungle. Thank you for everything and especially for sharing your experience with the TripAdvisor traveling community.

I have been travelling internationally for 23 years and to over 50 countries, but I have never had an experience quite like the one I recently had at Coconut Lodge. It is classified as a B&B, but it is really a combination of a B&B and resort combined. We were looking to relax for the first three days of our trip to Panama City and we did exactly that. We had contemplated staying at one of the big resorts for this time, but I am sure glad we didn't.

Mike and Nancy totally exceeded our expectations with their service. Mike did a fabulous job with the meals and Nancy took care of a couple of trips for us.

I was a little concerned about being outside of the downtown core, but the stay was a nice compliment to the four days we spent afterwards in Casco Viejo. For R&R and to see the canal zone attractions, one can't beat Coconut Lodge.

The value we received for our dollar was absolutely exceptional. Everything was very reasonably priced for what we received. We weren't so lucky when we moved on to Casco Viejo.

We stayed in Casa Bambu and absolutely loved it. I could not find a single thing wrong with it.

It was an honour and a privilege to read your message to us and the greatest compliment any B&B in Panama (or elsewhere) could ever hope to receive. We thank you for your visit and wish you the best in your future travels.
