This is a difficult place to review, many aspects of our stay here were really amazing and there is so much potential for the place. But it was let down by neglected rooms and somewhat scatty management. The rooms are big, comfortable and quiet. The location is great, away from the town enough to be quiet, but close enough to...

Our plan was to stay for 4 nights in Saigoncito but we liked it that much that we eventually stayed for 10 nights! First we stayed in room 4 and after that in room 5. Room numbers 4,5 and 6 share one balcony which is decorated so cosy! We felt at home immediately. Due to the rain we had the...

The rooms were nice, clean and, although located on the edge of the town it hardly mattered in such a small place. Jenny and the other staff were all nice and helpful and provided us with suggestions of things to do around Bocas del Toro. Also to be noted, I left my (somewhat expensive) sunglasses there by accident and didn't...

Jenny and staff are some of the most friendly and accommodating people I have ever met. There was a mix up with our booking and Jenny went wayyy out of her way to make sure we had a place to stay, with no extra charge. The property is located in a neighborhood a 5 min bike ride away from the...

Had a great 2 night stay. They had everything I needed in the room and a nice communal area to relax. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Got a free welcome drink when I arrived. The best part was having a bike rental included with the room so getting into town every day was quick and easy. Was slightly...

We stayed in Alsibiades Apartments, a property offered by Panamas Paradise and just across from the main hostel, for 3 nights. Staff were exceptionally nice and a complimentary beer on arrival was a lovely touch! It is 2 separate rooms, each with a double bed and bathroom. There is a very large shared living area inc kitchen and front deck...

The local family managing it were the most welcoming people. We got free welcome drinks and advices for every trip we did. The huts are clean and lovely decorated. Stayed way longer then originally planned..... For a reason :)

Up until this point my general attitude towards writing reviews has been if a place really impressed me I write a review- I don't like bagging small businesses out so I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt not post poor reviews- however this place changed my attitude as we booked it based on the excellent reviews it...

Hello AoifeNiSh, Thank you for taking the time to review us and I am sorry it turned out to be a bad one. There are somethings I would have to agree with you on but some things you noted that are not entirely true, as I believe. I believe a 10 to 15 minute bike ride is a slight exaggeration...
