We stayed at Yandup Lodge for 3 nights and it was, by far, the best part of our trip to Panama. The staff, location, food, accommodation, and experience were more we could have ever imagined. We stayed in one of the "over-the-water" huts and were very happy with our choice. We were there for 3 nights, which was the perfect...

I stayed one night at the Yandup Lodge in a cabana over the water. The cabana was very spacious and cool with lots of breezes from the ocean. The room was clean with hot showers, electricity and clean linens. The huge balcony had beautiful views of the ocean and the nearby islands. There was no TV or airconditioning, but these...

What a perfect stay in paradise! The service was impeccable- the Kuna are very warm and generous people and this was directly reflected in the service at the lodge. The meals were wonderful and beautifully presented. Fresh fish, clams, lobster, and shrimp were served in a variety of fashions. The fruit was the best I've ever had! One must like...

Last week we spent 2 nights here and hated having to leave. The staff were so friendly and helpful, especially Louisio and Jocelyn. They picked us up at the airport in Playon Chico and took us by boat to the island. We had reserved one of the bungalows over the water, which turned out to be so comfortable and relaxing....

We spent five nights at Yandup (couple and twins of 6), including New Years' Eve. We have had the most wonderful and relaxing time, sharing with people from the community and enjoying the sea and the breeze (noisy at night!). Accomodation was good, clean and airy; food was honest, although portions are normally small. The hotel owners and staff, nice...

Yandup Island Lodge review: First of all, the Island were great, as were the guides and kunas working there. Big Thanks to all of them. Lets begin with the transportation there. We flew from Panama City to Playon Chicho with Aeroperlas (take 45 minutes). They weigh the bags so make sure you keep within the allowed weight. The limit is...
