Wonderful Staff!

Posted Apr 8, 2014
This is a clean, comfortable and very reasonably priced small hotel. Staff was wonderful. Food was excellent. The only drawback was that all the guest rooms are upstairs with no elevator. We traveled with my mother, age 77, who had difficulty with the steep stairs.

One of the best in the city

Great value, helpful and intelligent staff, super location. This hotel is better than several others in this price range, but which, strangely, are rated higher.

Coronado area hotel

Posted Feb 16, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: WiFi speed
This hotel is about 10 km from the hustle & bustle of Coronado. There is no elevator, so if you travel with heavy luggage, that is a disadvantage as all the rooms are upstairs. The beach is very rocky. At low tide, the water is very far from the hotel. There is no real ocean view from the hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean with a decent shower. The WiFi is very spotty and the signal was never above "low." All in all, a nice hotel for people who travel light and don't need fast internet.

Great secluded rural hotel close to the beach.

Posted Feb 14, 2014
Pros: Clean and friendly facility. Eat meals on the veranda or on the hotel grounds. Tropical setting.
Cons: Needs a bathroom exhaust fan for circulation.
Location: Close to Coronado for meals, shopping and beaches. 20 minutes drive to the mountain village of El Valle.
This is a great little hotel. American standard hotel rooms with great walk in tiled shower. The whole property is clean and tidy. Ample parking. The hotel next door (there are 3 hotels in a cluster) has a great pool. Have lunch or dinner around the pool or on the extensive veranda over looking the Pacific Ocean. The restaurant at Manglar Lodge is far superior to others in the area. The desk personnel speak English and are quite helpful with area information. Very close to the beach but no beach or ocean view.

Would go back again

The combination of good and reasonably priced food, proximity to ocean, quaintness of property grounds and rooms made this a very pleasant first night stay in Panama.

Nice hotel but hard to find.

Posted Feb 1, 2014
Cons: SIGN!!!!
I had a hard time finding this hotel. there are no signs on the intercontinental hwy and it was not on GPS. A call first might help. Look for a tan restaurant on the north side of the hwy across from a small road. Go to end, then left to end - hotel is to the left. The rooms are above the first floor bar/restaurant. The view from the balcony is of the small grounds and parking lot with no beach view. A short walk gets you to the beach. The rooms are equipped with TV, refrig and coffee maker. Bed is comfy and the bathroom has walk in shower. Breakfast was not served. Decor was nice.

By the beach

Posted Nov 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Manglar Lodge is located right across the way from the beach. We could see the water from the corner of our balcony. There is a restaurant on site with good food and the lodge is small with only 4 units. It is off the highway and the sign for El Palmar, where you turn, is not obvious.
