I agree somewhat with the other reviewers. It is isolated but a great place to just sit back and do nothing if that is what you want. We stayed 4 nights in the suite which was only a bit more than the regular room. King bed and huge bathroom. Very private patio. It was definitely worth it. We had the...

Liked the hotel, but I suggest staying only one night. Plan ahead and arrive at earliest check-in time and leave at latest check-out. This will give you plenty of time to enjoy what the hotel has to offer, which is not as much as I was expecting. From what I read, I thought there would be many trails, in reality...

We stayed here for three nights, which turned out to be far too many. On the other hand, it's out of the way enough that it wouldn't make sense to come for anything less, so... My advice: skip it. Reasons: The "beaches" barely deserve the name. Two exist only until about 11am, the third not really at all, and the...

We love coming here by boat and having a relaxing lunch or dinner. They have a wonderful menu and good food. You can get anything from hamburgers to a full fish dinner. My grandchildren love the adventure of climbing the lookout tower.

We were dropped off by water taxi at Cristina Beach and hiked to the hotel-restaurant. The hike turned out to be quite a bit longer and more difficult than we were led to believe. We were hot, sweaty and tired by the time the restaurant came in sight. Oh, and Thirsty. The cold Panama beer never tasted so good. The...

First visit in 2013 during central American round-trip blew me away. 3 years later I went back for more. The location, the scenery and especially the owner Brad really makes the place unique for travelers. Thanks again for setting us up with your fishing buddy's. Thinking of going again someday. What a place. Lennard (Denmark)

The hotel is really nice with a beautiful terace just in front of the sea. Food is good and not too expansive. Rooms are clean and quite large. ( Only Fan no A/C ==> really need it because it's really hot even during the night) They organize excursions in the national park and on desert island it's just so beautiful...

Visiting Boca Brava for the first time was great fun! Brad and his staff took such good care to make our stay very pleasant and wonderful! We had a room with a shared bath that turned out to be better than expected. Great views and at the end of the path so very private. Our day on the water was...

This is a great hotel in a stunning location and with free wifi. All rooms have ocean views and were clean and well equipped. The restaurant offered a limited menu but the food was fresh and excellent and the views fantastic. Brad and his staff were welcoming, friendly and very helpful. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.

We just loved staying here. Great food, great vibe, super friendly people working. We found the hotel amazing, the restaurant, the views, the music, everything. 10 minutes walk to a small private beach, 12 minutes to another even more amazing beach. We just wished we had more time to stay. Thanks Brad (and we hope to see you in Amsterdam!)
