Well, if you desire to stay somewhere pretty secluded with good views then by all means try this place. It's kind of like a big tree house. That being said, the place is 4 miles from town which may not sound like a lot but a taxi to and from town is 15 dollars EACH way. Also, I feel as...

Nice place away from stressful Bocastown. - We didnt get the room at the check in time, we also got informed that we needed to change rooms both of our nights. Really Not that big of a deal but always nice with an apologize. Though it was a good place to stay!

Gorgeous eco-lodge tucked into the jungle of Panama! You are steps from the beach, but also surrounded by lush forest. The first time we stayed here we say sloths in the trees directly overlooking the outdoor patio! This is a very unique and wonderful experience. However, this is not a luxury hotel, with steamed towels. Look at the hotels website...

There are so many photos already posted on the internet, but they do not transmit the beauty of the place, and the friendliness of the staff. Very hospital, knowledgeable, friendly. The food was really good, and we definitely recommend to sign up for meals. Tesoro lodge has bicycles for rent, if you want to discover the island on your own,...

The location speaks for itself.... surfers paradise in between beach breaks at playa Bluff just 12 minutes up the road, with Dumpers and Paunch the same in the other direction. There are not many places you can have jungle on one side and waves breaking on the other. Every day there was something different, monkeys howling in the trees, a...

I stayed here with my parents and sister for two nights. Roomy, yet cozy cabin; beds were very comfortable with bug nets (we didn't need them) and small fans for each bed. No air conditioning, but the fans provided a nice breeze. Kitchen has everything you need to cook (a two burner propane stove and good sized fridge). The cabin...

We stayed in the dolphin cabin and it was really cool. The sound of the ocean and over the top of the waves. The food was awesome. It is quaint and everyone is super nice. The owners, Monique and her husband are really nice. I forgot my fins in the cabin and they shipped them back to me for free....

Tesoro Escondido is a well named place. If you're a keen surfer or just a nature lover, this is the place to spend your time in bocas. We, the 4 of us, arrived early January without bookings and the super cool staff sorted us out by arranging our stay. We had to move a bit but they made things really...

Hotel was okay. Rooms were very small. The communal kitchen was a disappointment - very dark - it's in the "basement" of the hotel. But one of our friends had the Delphin cabin and that was much nicer... with a terrace and a little kitchen. Best thing about it was the location - a 20 minute jog further down the...

We stayed here for almost a week with a group of friends. The location is gorgeous, the ocean wild and forceful, and the atmosphere calming. I had planned to work a bit during the trip, but the vibe was so relaxed that I just couldn't pick it up - and as a result I felt much more rested than usual...
