As I was going to be celebrating my 50th birthday during our 6 weeks away we wanted to be somewhere very special and memorable to celebrate it - and we definitely found it! WOW Popa Paradise was everything we were looking for plus so much more. The property itself is just incredible but the staff take it to another level....

Very nice Italian management greets you and we had a good time despite 3 days of rain. I see there are some comments to the resort made by others, so these are my input: - the boat ride is 40 minutes and the boat is not luxurious. More like a fishing boat, but it is fast, and made to plough...

We found paradise! After not having visited Bocas del Toro for nearly 20 years, I was amazed by how much has changed. I'd never been to Isla Popa before and it's about a 40 minute boat ride from Bocas town. When we arrived, we were greeted with fresh coconut drinks and hair smiles and escorted up to the clubhouse.

Hola! Thank you for choosing Popa Paradise as one of the stops on your trip, and thank you for posting your review.

In particular, the centerpiece of a stay here: the...

One of the main reasons for booking our vacation at Popa Paradise was that it described itself as being 'the only All inclusive, Adults Only (18+) resort in Panama' (as per the resorts web site). Much to our surprise on arriving to the resort, under the age of 18 guests were on site. By the end of our 8 night...

The website's description of barefoot luxury perfectly encapsulates the feel of this resort. Popa has the pampering attentiveness and comfort of a 5 star hotel in a nature-appropriate atmosphere. Everything about this trip was perfect. The owners handled everything from pick up in Bocas to drop off, made us feel comfortable, and attended to us without hounding. We were never...

I visited Popa Paradise for 4 nights at the end of November (feel bad this review is going up sooo late!), and it was mostly the serene paradise I had been seeking.

Popa Paradise is the only Adults Only (18+) All-Inclusive hotel in Panama. Popa Paradise Beach Resort is located on a stunning island called Isla Popa in the Bocas del Toro archipelago, off the Panamanian coast in the Caribbean Sea.

Our chef creates a spectacular, tasty, unique and healthy menu and can cater to vegetarians and vegans, which is all included in our all inclusive rate. We have a large range of activities and excursions from diving, fishing, zip lines to the spectacular Zapatilla islands marine park or simply relax by our swimming pool and enjoy a Popa Paradise cocktail at our swim up bar, enjoy a massage in the spa or take a walk on one of our stunning beaches. Our new beach bar and restaurant "Rosie's" is great for cool drinks on the beach all day and at night beach BBQs, bonfires, and occasionally live music under the stars. Our dedicated team of professionals will take care of your every need and ensure you have a memorable stay at our boutique resort. We look forward to meeting you at Popa Paradise - barefoot luxury! ... more   less
