Fruit, toast, HB eggs, yogurt, mystery ham and American cheese. Juice, milk and coffee, tea. Not great but OK ballast for the day. The past owner has moved on to our regret as... More

This was our first accommodation when arriving to Panama City. It was a nice B&B in a quiet neighborhood 2-3 blocks from a main city street. The rooms were clean and comfy. Nice, modern décor. Breakfast (toast, meats, cheese, fruit, cereal, hard boiled eggs, juices and coffee) was provided in a lovely outdoor tropical oasis. In the breakfast area, it... More

The lodge is very clean, welcoming and they arranged transfer from the airport for us. The room is fairly basic: comfy bed, tv, small fridge etc. The bathroom had a decent hot water shower, toilet and sink. Both were... More

The place was nice and intimate. Nice, simple breakfast included with the room: hard boiled eggs, juice, yogurt, toast and fruit. The room looked nice at first glance but the paint was peeling and the outlets were not covered, the safe either missing or broken and the air conditioning was not working well in either of the 2 times we...
