I usually only review places I like. This review is an exception. First the good news. The location is good, with rooms facing the water and swimming right off the deck in front. The service is the best aspect of Cocomo. Cindy picked us up at the airport (just 5 min away), helped us arrange tours and even walked us... More

The bed & breakfast is on the water with a great view. Owner is very nice and helpful. The hotel was booked when we arrived and confusion with our reservation but the owner gave us his room. Breakfast is great and staff friendly. Place could use some upgrading and security. We stayed four nights and our room was never cleaned... More

Cocomo was average at best - the location is off the beaten path, which could seem good to some, but walking to/from town in 95 degrees was too hot at times. The place has 4 rooms, two in front and two in back. We had a back room which was quieter since the front rooms are right next to the... More

Nice, clean, friendly ownership with many good recommendations and contacts. Air conditioned, breakfast plentiful, the only disadvantage was our room was next to the breakfast table and loud, early eaters shared their conversations.

Charming little guesthouse right at the ocean. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast was mediocre. The owner a very friendly guy (US); however, one particular staff member was far from service oriented; we had the impression she was bothered by every single guest and definitely not motivated to do her job. Shame, as this nice little spot was quite of... More

Our 2 nights at Cocomo leave us with a feeling that the stay was OK, yet if going back to Bocas we'd look for alternatives. We found Bocas to be a very touristic place where at least monthly a new Bed & Breakfast or Hotel opens. Just walking around the streets shows you the activity. And also in the same... More

The location is very good. Away from the centre of town but a short five minute walk to all the restaurants etc. (and to the airport). The room was very nice and spacious, with a ceiling fan and air conditioning. However, there was a series of power cuts on the first night of our stay (during a very warm night... More

Cocomo is a nice little hotel, just four rooms. Direct on the water edge. Hosted by very friendly American man. Good breakfasts. Can use kayaks for free. Excellent location. Visited as couple and liked it.

We loved Cocomo - its in a quiet street, on the water and has a real Caribbean style. Very laid back, private with big rooms with a/c. Owners were great and gave helpful suggestions. A great place to unwind.

Friendly and helpful staff! They helped is with calling taxicabs and arranging tours! Really nice and abundant breakfast, with all the other guests at a big table on the patio overlooking the sea. The front dock with the beds, as seen on the pictures, unfortunately, wasn't there anymore.. I think it is because they are busy with renovating the whole... More

“Some of the rooms are right next to the water so if you like the sound of the water ask for those. If you don't like the sound of waves ask for one of the other rooms.”
