We are just finishing up our 7 night stay at this beautiful boutique hotel on the Pacific coast. The quality of guest service is outstanding. Staff work very hard to remember guests' names and preferences. Any and every request is met with a gracious response from all staff and consistent follow up by one of the managers to ensure that...

We stayed here for three nights. We had two nights booked in a standard bungalow initially, but asked for and upgrade to the bungalow with hottub, plus an extra night. This was possible and we were very happy with this. Sitting g in the hottub, overlooking the bay, is just perfectly relaxing, and what a holiday is all about. The...

Panama has surprises everywhere, but many of them are not good ones.... except Bocas Del Mar! Somehow, in a country with crazy roads and somewhat dysfunctional 'systems', this hotel manages to deliver what others cannot: a first rate experience in a beautiful location. The food in the restaurant is lovely and the breakfasts are plentiful. This place provided a wonderful...

Very spacious and confortable rooms. Restaurant is good. Staff is polite and provides good service. Hotel site is spectacular ocean front location. The best is the islands out front of hotel that are an archipelago with white sand beaches and aqua blue water! Amazing! Fishing out of control! Big game fish in shallow water. If you like boats and unexplored,...

We had a wonderful time just before Christmas here. Very gracious staff, well-kept gardens and grounds, beautiful pools and lovely food. There was lots to do as well in such a beautiful area. Well done to the guys from these happy and satisfied customers.

I re-read the other reviewers thinking I missed something, I agree the views are beautiful, however the experience, as a whole was a big disappointment considering it was meant to be a tropical get away. The only activity that was free was the pool and we did not come to Panama to sit next to a pool. The so-called beach...

An excellent 2 night stay. Rooms are large and clean including the en suite bathrooms. Meticulously kept grounds and pools. Lots to do or just kick back and relax as we did. Very nice restaurant with good food choices. All staff from management on down were professional and quick to respond to requests. Of all the hotels I have stayed...

This hotel, perched above the gateway to the Pacific, is a glorious spot. The rooms all seem to have beautiful views out to the cove, which is dotted with islands. They have large front facing glass doors which are tinted so in the day you can look out without people looking in, and that includes the well-appointed bathroom. A loo...

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
