We stayed for four nights. It was a good location (about 3 miles from town with free shuttle available) but my friend and I rented bikes and did excessive walking - which we both enjoy. The pool area is beautiful, the room was good, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was just ok. Unfortunately, in a tropical climate, it is...

The experience began when the hotel van met us at the small airport with bottles of water and rolled up wet wash cloths so we could wipe the grime off of us. Not a bad start. The property is away from the main town, which at first bugged me a bit, but within a day I was glad to be...

We spent a week here and enjoyed every minute. Coming to Panama means you will not be mad with slow service. That's part of the experience. They don't do it on purpose it's just the way they are. Hotel room is very nice and pool is wonderful. Restaurant could have a few more options. Food is ok, just ok.

Wonderful hotel in an incredible spot on Earth. The view from the balcony is fabulous, the pool is clean and the service is great. The food could be better and I didn't always get what I actually ordered. Bocas Town is just a stone-throw away and costs 2 dollars per person.

We were very pleased with the hotel here and I think all rooms provided a beautiful view of the beach and beautiful pool. The room was clean. We were able to take excursions to other islands easily. We felt we had a great vacation.

If we go to Boca again, we would stay at a hotel in town. We rented single speed cruiser bikes to get from the hotel to town, the beaches, etc. It is worth it to get a room that is not on the ground floor. We had a junior suite that was very nice. It's an amazing little island and...

Best hotel in Bocas: Even if far from town the hotel offers free transportation to town. Good service, nice bar, quiet atmosphere, great sleep.Free transportation to town should be more frequent.

We stayed at this hotel from February 15 to 21, 2012. It was a very nice hotel, but we were disappointed by the beach. You could not really swim in the water off their beach, which was one of the reasons we chose this hotel. The beach is quite rocky and thin in this location. However, the rooms were very...
