Family of four stayed at Coconut Lodge for two nights in March as part of a Disneyworld,Cayman Islands,Panama tour over several weeks.
Our family stayed in a deluxe resort -Animal Kingdom lodge in Disneyworld as well as numerous other hotels in Miami,Grand Cayman and another B&B in Panama City and our kids without hesitation chose Coconut Lodge as their favorite hotel stay of our trip. We the adults also concur with their assessment.
This is impressive especially when going up against Disney so this alone says alot about Coconut Lodge.
Coconut Lodge has a very peaceful and homey atmosphere and very immaculate and comfortable rooms.
The three dogs that live on the premises are very friendly and the kids just loved them.The two little parrots that live by the hammock and the doves that live near the roof of the main house only added to the setting.
The pool is lovely and the kids enjoyed this tremendously in the panama heat.
The pool can be used late as long as you are quiet.
The breakfasts were very nicely done with eggs cooked to your request and served with fresh fruit and a tasty yogurt with granola and fruit.
Juice,milk,tea and coffee were available as was some dry cereal which was also good.
We ate dinner one night at the hotel and at our request the kids were served pasta which they liked and the adults were served a tender beef dish with mashed potatoes and veggies.salad and warm bread accompanied the meal as well as a shot of seco-the panamanian sugarcane drink and a pre dinner drink which we chose a refreshing rum punch.dessert was a chocolate drizzled banana cake.
For 15 dollars we felt it was a good value and the kids were charged less.we enjoyed our dinner with a nice couple from canada and spent the evening talking with them while the kids enjoyed the pool.

The lodge offers a variety of tours and the ones we did were excellent.
We took the monkey island/jungle cruise tour recommended by the lodge and had a great time there.the lodge provided free transportation for this activity.
we were able to go fishing on the panama canal and our family caught a bunch of peacock bass which was great fun.this tour gives you the option of either kayaking or fishing after the monkey island tour. lunch provided as well as dollar beer and you can swim around the houseboat.
On our last day we did a day tour which we and Nancy the owner pieced together.
The guide who works for Coconut Lodge was a very very good guide and helped find and do the things we wanted in an unrushed and very informative and helpful way.
We really wanted to see a sloth in the wild and we were able to find one which was super amazing and when we visited the miraflores locks at the panama canal the guide knew the perfect time to see the ships transiting the canal-we arrived around 3 pm to see two ships passing one after the other
Overall a great stay and would highly recommend this hotel.Coconut Lodge deserves its 5 star rating and Tripadvisor certificate of excellence.
