We stayed 10 days in Panama, Couple of days in Panama City, and a couple of days in Koko Resort. We did read reviews of Koko so we kind of knew what to expect. Apartments are fair, nothing fancy, but not pretending either and everything is there. So far so good. BUT, to have a lumber shop right next to...

The very small woodshop that supports many families in the local community where we live is open during normal business hours like every other business. They are not loud, obnoxious or a problem for us or anyone else. Sorry but we are a property located in a community, the people in our community do not stop working because tourists decided...

The cottages and boardwalk are a beautiful design and the accommodations are clean and efficient. Lee was terrific in the morning and breakfast was delicious. It was very quiet and we were glad of it after seeing the bustle of Bocas Town. In the evenings, we'd sip cocktails on our deck or go out to the big end deck and...

Koko Resort is unlike any place I have ever stayed and made my honeymoon a wonderful and unique experience. The owners, Lee and Jack, treat guests and neighbors in the surrounding neighborhood like family. We stayed in the Dolphin, a two-story overwater bungalow. It had an equipped kitchen, sitting room and sleeping area downstairs, as well as a full bedroom...

My girlfriend and I recently stayed in the Pink House (about 200 yards from the main complex) It was isolated from the rest of the resort as far as distance but not in accommodation. I read a previous review below that seems to have very negative things to say about Jack, which in the short time we were there seemed...

My family (wife and 3 teenagers) have stayed at all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and intimate B&Bs in Europe. We always find ourselves enjoying and remembering the local establishments over the bigger resorts. While I can understand why KoKo may not be for some people, all I can say is that we thoroughly loved the experience and it will be one...

My husband and I stayed in the Starfish cabin and absolutely loved every second. We arrived at like 8:20 in the morning and Jack and Lee gave us a great breakfast and we checked right into our cabin. Everyone in the neighborhood is very friendly and nice and Jack and Lee seem very well respected and known by everyone in...

We loved our stay at the Koko resort. We stayed in the Orchid cabin with unobstructed views of the water which offered us spectacular sunset views. Jack and Lee were great. They call you cabs, arrange excursions, provide beach towels and do whatever they can to make sure your needs are met. The cabins themselves are very clean with lots...

We loved our stay at Koko resort. We stayed in Gecko cabin. It was incredibably relaxing staying in a cabin over the water complete with hammock and and when you lie in bed with the upstairs balcony door open, you can see the sea. Previous reviewers have had mixed views around staying in the middle of the local community, but...

Koko is exactly as described, a laid back vibe in a town of backpackers and seasoned travellers, the cabanas are clean, air conditioned and bug free. The hosts, Jack and Lee are like distant uncle and aunt, welcoming you to their warm home. Jack hold court every morning at breakfast, waxing info on local trips and knowhow, invaluable tips on...

I stayed here with my husband recently. I feel I should preface this review with a bit about me in order to try and pre-empt the Koko Resort standard resort response of "if you are expecting a Four Seasons Resort do not come here". I have travelled extensively around the world and have experienced a lot of Asia, Africa and...

We close our eyes to nothing. A review like this hurts us deeply. Providing our guests with the best vacation possible is our passion and when someone speaks negatively about us it hurts us to the core. This is not some big business hotel, this is our families dream when we lived in the USA and we are very happy...
