The owners, Miera and Jose are WONDERFUL! They met our every need and helped us decide what to do every day. They have contacts with the water taxis which was very helpful. They made accommodations to move us from down stairs to up stairs which was wonderful. Thank you!

The hotel was nice, our room a big with two large balconies that gave us a nice view of our island and Bocas Town. We really liked staying on the small island, it is very peaceful and we were the only ones in the hotel. The location is nice from the water side but from the island interior it is... More

I arrived after a long travel day. This was my first time to Bocas. I took a water taxi from Almirante $6 and another to Hotel Oasis $1. A friendly greeting awaited from Jose and Mayra the owners. The hotel looks across the water at Bocas Town and is 1 minute away by water taxi. The front of the hotel... More

Stayed here 3 nights. The owners are absolutely wonderful and the hotel is quite clean. Being on a different island is a little inconvenient when looking for lunch/dinner but a dollar taxi ride gets you to Isla Colon. The owners provide lots of tips. They will do laundry for a nominal charge. Their neighbor is the bocassailing guy who is... More

My family and I stayed here the last two nights of a 10 trip to Bocas. Our room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful to arrange a water taxi. They also took care of our laundry and my wife was pleased. I would have preferred a suite with ocean view, but none were available.... More

Great place to stay to see Bocas Del Toro. It's not on the main island but staying on the main island would mean a dirty uncomfortable stay, and for me it made sense to stay at Hotel Oasis where it was super clean and the owner and staff were amazing and friendly. The cost is $1 water taxi per person,... More

I really like the owners which is why it is hard to right this honest review. They were very helpful with activity suggestions and very pleasant. The room was, however, average at best. The location doesn't make up for the average accommodations. We stayed in the suite with the balcony and hammocks for $120 per night. At that price a... More

“All rooms are clean and quiet but the upstairs room is bigger and has 2 balconies so you can look out over the water.”

“There's only one room with a balcony. It's also the biggest room, and a bit more expensive. The room also faces Colon, so you may hear a bit of music from local bars and water taxis. The balcony door blocked the majority of the sound.”

“The only way to get to and from is by water taxi from Bocas Town. But no worries, It's very quick and easy. I was a bit disappointed that it seemed impossible to get off the premises by foot to explore Isla Carenaro, However, tours are organized from the hotel to many wonderful sites/activities.”
