“Feeling good, just feeling good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

We stayed 4 night in January in Coconut Lodge and we had a great time. The rooms were spacious, modern and clean. It was just not a room. It looks like we were in a house. Breakfast was fine with cornflakes mixed with yoghurt + delicious omelette prepared by host Mike. The location is not so good if you want to be inside Panama City but It is just a 20min taxi ride from there to the center. On the other hand the location is perfect for nature (birds, wonderful trees next to the lodge). The breakfast and the location might be very good but the gem is the "hosts" itself : Mike and Nancy re-inventend the way of welcoming people. By just trying to feel you good at their home as you were part of their family. They are just the greatest hosts I have ever seen for a long time. They want you to feel like you want to be. They understood very fast that our interest was concentrated in travels, food and wine. And they made the best they can to satisfy our needs. What I found fantastic is that we could talk together about our experiences in everyday life like we knew each other for some time. We could even talk until late in the evening. We had a great time with Mike and Nancy and this is what we will remember for sure.
Definitely a place that i will recommend, not only for the rooms and the comfort in that lodge but for sure for the people who are running that place.

We were pleased to read that you found our rooms to be not simply rooms, but more of a house (or home). We are also glad you enjoyed our two course breakfasts from our parfaits to our full second course gourmet breakfasts. We are especially thrilled that you found our location to be good, centrally located to parks and the city Center. We do strive to make every guest feel part of the family and are glad we were able to accomplish that. Thank also for the great comments concerning your stay and the times we shared together. By far, the best feedback for us is the following: “Definitely a place that I will recommend, not only for the rooms and the comfort in that Lodge but for sure for the people who are running that place.” As hosts,we are speechless.....All we can say is Thank you so very much!!!

My friend and I visited Coconut Lodge in early May, 2012. We planned to stay for two or three days and in total were there for five. We were lodged in the comfortable and tranquil Casa Bambu which is an independent building on the property. Everything was perfect. The most enjoyable part of our stay was meeting our hosts Nancy and Mike and their two daughters. They quickly determined our preferences and did everything feasible to ensure that our stay was as enjoyable as possible. I rated room service although one would not expect that in a bed and breakfast but surprisingly we often had snacks or drinks delivered to our door. The delicious and nutritious meals that chef Mike serves at a very reasonable price also deserve mention. A great experience that I would highly recommend.

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...

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.
