They have recently built a wonderful sitting area in front of their Hotel which allows you to people watch while enjoying a nice breeze and out of the hustle and bustle, which is Bocas. The owner informed us they will be also starting a small...

I thought I did my research. This hotel is NOTHING like the photos or reviews. It's clean and has an air conditioner and TV but that's it.

Best location to be right at the center of Bocas Town. 5 minutes walk to the tiny local airport. Nice reception, fast Wifi, room has everything you need. More than clean! Try Birds for dinner, a couple of minutes walk down the road. Best food in town.

We stayed in a triple room in May. The rooms were clean and air conditioned. Decent price. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They offer nice light breakfast each morning that is included.
