Hotel needs a major overhaul. It's a dump. Still, I stayed 7 days. The room was cleaned and swept daily. The ac worked well but unsightly and loud. Rooms are not soundproof, a problem if you want to sleep and have families with kids in the room above you. Bathroom works, hot water, cold water, but very dingy/old. Rags for...

This was my first trip to Bocas, so I do not have a lot of experience with other hotels in the area. We came in on a last minute 4 day trip with me and a couple friends. The place was nice and we got a great room, with a balcony, overlooking the water. The staff was very friendly, room...

I was traveling with some friends to Bocas. From the airport you can take this to town - about a 5 min cab ride if that for about $2-$5. It is in one of the best locations - right in the middle of town - on the water - with a couple of restaurants. From the hotel it is easy...

We stayed here only 3 nights and was an incredible experience! In order to travel to isla colon you have to take a 45min flight from panama City ($150) or take a 10hrs bus ($28) to isla Almirante. After arriving you have to take a "water taxi" to isla colon (30 min). After arriving Colon island, Limbo hotel is a...

We stayed here for two nights and our group had two rooms. Both balcony rooms, one street facing and one sea view. The sea view room is $45 more than the street view room and has a large balcony with a love seat, table and 4 chairs. The room had a double and a single bed. The room was spacious...

This hotel is in a great location! The rooms are just okay. We had a street view with a balcony that was nice. The breakfast that is included was to open at 7:30 but several times did not begin until 8:00-8:15. There were several staff members who were very helpful and kind and several who were sour grapes. The staff...

My wife and I visit Bocas del Toro on a regular basis as we own property in the area, and we have stayed at most of the better hotels on Isla Colon, and Hotel El Limbo is one of our favorites, mainly because of the ideal central location and comfortable rooms. The location is great because it is right in...

The front desk isn't staffed until 9 am so you can't check out before then, no matter how desperately you need to. The other staff tried to be helpful but they didn't know how to pull together the bill or charge the credit card. We had a tour to get to at 9 am and were desperate to get going...

Got a great deal to go to Bocas del Toro on Panamanian Holidays (very busy time of year and high season). We received air tickets, hotel and a tour for an extremely reasonable price. The hotel on the offer was Limbo on the Sea. Went to the website, beautiful picture but I knew it was a bit different. We had...
