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...

We really enjoyed our time here Luxury bungalows and the staff does everything to make your stay enjoyable. Just one minor comment. On our first night during dinner management started negotiations with some walk-in guests about the already last minute room rates. This lasted for about 10 minutes and is not considered very discrete for the other guests. It made...

We had a great stay at Bocas Del Mar. We arrived late after a long day of travel from the states and the night manager Peter was very accommodating and arranged a late dinner.

Our stay was excellent. We had last minute requests that were taken care of without hesitation. Panama is not known for it's customer service experience, so Bocas del Mar really exceeds what you expect here. The bungalows (we rented 2) were really clean and I like the privacy. Great place to come to fish or to hang out!

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
