We stayed in the Starfish Cabin for a few days after a couple of weeks in Costa Rica (crossed the border with Caribe Shuttle btw and they were good). I have to say, they were by far the best days of the trip. The cabin was spacious (more than enough room for two, it would suit a family or group...

Thanks for this wonderful review. At times its hard when people write negative things but reviews like this make everything worth it. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciated our beautiful community and island as much as we do.

Lousy neighborhood, located in a "back alley" amongst local residences, garbage in the water makes swimming undesirable, very noisy with all the locals, dogs, kids, loud music. Overpriced at $143/night, expected a better location, not in the midst of a low income neighborhood. The co-owner Jack is rude, abrupt and very disrespectful of the country and it's people that is...

Disrespectful to the country and its people? This review deserves no response and no apology and is 100% a lie and should be removed from tripadvisor. Jack is one of the most active community members on this island and this reviewer either was very confused about something or is trying to cause problems. This review is personally offensive and just...

I stayed at Koko resort for three nights with my dad and it was a great experience. The owners Jack and Leigh, are very friendly and generous people and just being in the cabins was one of the best parts of the trip to Bocas. The breakfast Jack prepares is very good and it's just a great place to relax...

Hi there, My husband and I (late 40's) stayed in Dolphin Cabin for 12 nights, 9 - 21 Feb 13. As far as winter vacations go we have travelled to Cuba, the DR, Jamaica, and Costa Rica with all inclusive packages. This was our first winter vacation that was self directed. We loved it and I honestly thing that it...

Interesting -- because it was essentially central american in terms of relaxation and good vibes. Mind-expanding -- the experience of breakfast every morning around the kitchen with Jack, Lee and the other guests contributed to a great community feeling with people learning from each other and discovering things to do that you might not normally do. The staircase in the...

Thank you very much for the kind review. We love having guests like you stay with us. We understand 99% of our guests really love their experiences in Bocas and at our properties but its hard to sit back and say nothing when others post negative and untrue comments online and are protected behind the veil of tripadvisor. If more...

Jack is a colorful, dry witted, humourous, individual with vast knowledge of the area. He has great connections with the locals for tours, rentals, meals, etc. And he serves a KILLER breakfast. I understand why this place gets high rating with Trip Advisor for customer service until one encounters a problem, Jack and Lee become VERY defensive. Please read Lee's...

WE ARE NOT A RESORT IN THE TRADITIONAL SENSE. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A RESORT WITH RESTAURANT, 24 HOUR DESK STAFF. AND ROOM SERVICE WE ARE NOT WHERE YOU WANT TO BE. We have tried to address this concern in the FAQ section of our web page and it is clear in the trip advisor reviews. We offer private...

Koko Resort is a true gem. Words cannot do this place justice. Jack and Lee are the best. They are funny, helpful, interesting people that you could hang out with and talk to for hours. We looked forward to breakfast every morning with Jack and Lee, and couldn't wait to wake up and chat with them. The cabins were wonderful...

We only stayed for 2 nights on the island and I am very thankful we chose to spend it here. The hotel is ran by a very friendly and helpful couple and from the moment we arrived we received an amazing level of personal service. Over the past 7 years Jack seems to have built up a wide network of...
