Super place, with spectacular view and friendly helpfull staff. They are very alert that nothing lacks you and looking after all their guests well. Good kitchen and we did an interesting boat tour. All in all it is not cheap, but worth it. Beatiful area in Panama.

Our stay was very nice, relaxing and active. You can sit back and just enjoy the pool or go kayaking. One morning we did the Discovery Tour a boat ride around the various islands and snorkeling. We stopped at a beach and our boat Captain cracked open some coconuts for us to enjoy. Highly recommended taking advantage of the activities...

Just what we were looking for. A week of relaxation enjoying the two pools. The higher infinity pool has a spectacular view. We sat on the swing each evening for the sunsets. Took two tours to the islands,. The latter to Isla Secas with fishing. We thought the food was too rich with oils, but that is our individual taste....

This beautiful boutique hotel is located about an hour from David airport. It is a beautiful coastal location (Pacific Ocean) on the mainland at Boca Chica. Upon arrival the staff at the reception made us feel very welcome. We were given a golf car ride to our bungalow guest room. Upon entering our bungalow (room 11) we were awe struck...

The hotel is one hour far from the airport, but the views of green tropical vegetation makes one feel in Holiday. The hotel is in Paradise, since the fusion of an outstanding nature with comfort of the rooms, the delicious food and cocktails, and the friendless of the staff, makes one feel in heaven. The rooms are spacious and clean,...

We arrived at Bocas del Mar for 3 nights to start our Panamanian vacation. Drive from David in the dark was a little hairy but with GPS, we made it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Bocas Del Mar, in Boca Chica, is a boutique hotel with modern, luxury features. In a privileged oceanside location on the mainland, it is perfectly positioned for a completely relaxing vacation. We were TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Award Winners in 2016 for the Top Hotel for Service in Panama. Our focus is on quality customer service and attention to detail. We have 20 large contemporary-style guest bungalows that are set in tropical gardens right alongside the glistening blue water of the Gulf of Chiriqui. Open your drapes each morning and the Pacific Ocean is there to greet you! Choose from several room types; from our spacious king or queen bed bungalows through to the exceptional Premier Suite. There's a gourmet restaurant & bar on site and we have not one but TWO stunning infinity-style pools to bathe in. There is also a small beach, except at high tide, and we have our own dock to head to more local beaches via water taxi or excursion boat - we are opposite the beautiful islands of the Gulf of Chiriqui and have a full ocean and land trip program. Plus a massage studio (advance reservation required). Just 5 minutes by car or watertaxi from Boca Chica village. ... more   less
