“Best B&B ever stayed at!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

The coconut lodge is a nice B&B away from the busy city of Panama but close enough to go and enjoy the city life.
You get welcomed with a nice refreshing drink and they place in of their nice clean beautifly arrnged rooms. The people tending the lodgw are the Nicest people, acomodating and friendly i have ever met at a hotel. Made our stay great and had so much fun. Loved the place, food was awesome!!!! Made you feel right at home.

My wife and me spended a week in the Coconut Lodge at the end of May 2012. We are very glad that we stayed our hole time in Panama at this place because of many reasons.
First: The owner family. Nancy, Mike and their two daughters are so extremly friendly and extraordinary cordial hosts. We had wonderful conversations with them and they arranged everything for us. The breakfast and the dinners in the evening were very delicious. Mike is a great chef. My favourite was Mike's barbecue in the evening and his egg variations in the morning. With Mike we did two trips to the Miraflores locks and to the Caribean coast. It was wonderful. Also the excursion with Capt. Carl on the canal was a very good day trip.
Second: The property: It is located outside of Panama City and because of that it is a calm place to relax at the pool. For excursions to the city, the canal and other destinations you can start from here. We stayed at the casa bambu, a luxury pool house. Everything is very clean.

Nancy and Mike, thank you very very much for the fantastic time at your house. We hope to see you again at your wonderful B&B!

Thank you for having chosen Coconut Lodge as your holiday destination for your whole stay while in Panama. It was wonderful to read your comments as it brought us back to the time we spent together enjoying good conversation. Thank you for the positive feedback on the cleanliness, calm, and luxury of the casita as well as the quality of your culinary experience. The fact that you found the food to be delicious was great to hear as we pride ourselves in providing well-prepared, homemade meals including Mike’s famous homemade bacon. We would agree with you that nothing beats a good barbecue on a terrace bordered by a stream and small rainforest. Thank you for the special mention: “A paradise in Panama with cordial hosts!” We miss your presence and sense of humour. We are glad that you had a fantastic time and hope to greet you soon again.

We visited the Coconut Lodge at the end of our vacation In Panama/ Costa Rica. After a horrible day of waiting for more then 8 hours on an airplane strip at the San Blas islands,accompanied by thousands of sandflies, we were exhausted and really needed a place to unwind and relax.

The Coconut Lodge is definately a perfect place for that!

It is a little Paradise, hidden away in the big city (+/- half an hour drive from the city centre, so a rental car is advised if you want to explore the city from there) The pool (which is big, so you can really have a good swim in it), the lovely garden, the spacious, clean and lovely decorated rooms, in combination with the very friendly and helpfull family who runs the place, make the Coconut Lodge a perfect place to stay when you are visiting Panama City.

Nancy and Mike made us feel welcome the minute we arrived! They were friendly, helppfull and very, very flexible (for example: we arrived much later then expected, but we could still easily join for diner that evening). We had diner in the lodge that evening and it was more then delicious. They even gave us a ride to the city centre the next day!

I am a flight attendant and because of this I have visited lots of beautiful places in the world. But the Coconut Lodge definately stands out when it comes to location, atmosphere and most of all the friendliness and warmth of the people who run the place. Hope to be back one day!

Too many times I come home from traveling and feel like I need a vacation after my vacation. This year my wife and I decided to try things a little differently by finding a relaxing place to call home for the last few nights of our trip. Based on the reviews of Coconut Lodge it seemed like a great place so we booked for three nights. My biggest regret is that we didn't spend all five of our nights in Panama City at the Coconut Lodge as we felt like we were in the company of friends the entire time. More than anything, our experience was relaxing and an escape from the hustle and bustle of cities and traveling.

From the moment we arrived it was a pleasant experience that made us feel relaxed and welcomed. We really enjoyed the opportunity to meet two family that were traveling at that time and enjoyed some great meals and hanging out during the mornings and evenings when we weren't out and about. The bed and bathroom were great and the room was well decorated and comfortable. Although the location was a bit away from the city, it worked well as we had a car and managed to navigate the roads relatively well after our first adventurous travel day.

If/when we head back we hope to stay their again.

I live and die by Trip Advisor... I am happy to say that my Trip to Coconut Lodge had prompted my first official review...

Accomodations were booked on a whim after a quick and endearing conversation with Nancy. From the moment we arrived we were given on the spot recommendations for activities and dining, spectacular breakfasts curtailed to our liking, fresh Pina Coladas (yes made from REAL pineapple) by the pool, and such gracious hosts that were accommodating, extremely friendly, and incredibly kind.

We landed in Panama completely unprepared. Without a book, or a map, or any significant knowledge of the country, we arrived at the Lodge in our rental car thanks to the carful instructions Nancy sent to us before our departure from the States. Nancy greeted us in the driveway and had our bags brought to our room. After a quick tour of the beautiful grounds she handed us a prepay cellphone (that took a $10 card and we used all 10 days to call back home) and a Garmin for our car!

Our first 6 days were spent in Cafe on Leche, a spacious and comfortable room on the 2nd floor. On day 1 I asked if there were any pool floats...on day 2 they were outside my door! We made a makeshift table on our deck, and the next day we had a bistro set outside our door! The next 4 days were spent in the largest room, Casa Bambu, a seperate, (quite large) and beautiful room by the pool!

With our bellies filled from Mike's delicious breakfasts and based purely on recommendations from our hosts based on our interests, we ventured out from Las Cumbres... We visited Miraflores Locks, Casco Viejo, Panama City, the Sunday Market & hot springs in El Valle, the Soberiana National Park, and the very best day tour I have ever been on. Nancy drove us out to meet Captain Carl for a day that will not soon be forgotten. A day on the canal and surrounding lake, a trip to monkey island, and some very interactive (sitting on my shoulder) monkey experiences, just ask Nancy and she will make it happen!

We arrived in Panama as guests but parted as much more.... I miss them already and look forward to my return.

The Coconut Lodge is the perfect home away from home.. It feels like we now have family in Panama! We decided this year that we really wanted an adventurous vacation, we picked the right place indeed... While planning our trip we thought it would be fun to stay at a B&B for 1/2 the trip and a typical resort for the other 1/2. When we picked our resorts, I started the booking process. I first called Nancy at coconut lodge to check availability and she was so friendly and helpful on the phone that I just knew we had to stay here for the entire time... What a great decision. It would have been traumatic to leave them halfway through our trip. Their home is beautiful, their food is wonderful, their recommendations were on the money, but most importantly, their hospitality is unmatchable!! There were so many little perks and attention to detail above and beyond what was advertised and what I expected. We were so comfortable here! If you travel to Panama and want access to the city, the beach, the jungle and the rainforest, this place is the central hub. If you have any reservations at all, just give Nancy a call! Nancy & Mike, we miss you guys already and hope to visit again soon!!!

We stayed 2 nights at Coconut Lodge with our 2-year old daughter at the end of our trip to Panama. We could not have been more pleased with our stay! The family was more than welcoming and catered to our every need during our stay. The location was beautiful and my daughter loved the pool while my husband enjoyed the bird watching right from the back porch. The food was fantastic and it was wonderful to have the option to order lunch and dinner at the lodge instead of having to hunt down a good restaurant. Our room was also beautifully designed, extremely clean and comfortable. This was by far the best B&B we stayed at during our 3 week trip and we hope to stay there again someday!
