the location was very convenient and peaceful (away from the center of town). cops are always patrolling on the main roads.

The room we had was on the first floor behind the receptionist area. It was quiet and private. the staff were so nice and friendly. the deli next store offer tasty sandwiches if you want to skip eating at a restaurant for a night. the fruit stand vendor across the street sell yummy fruits which we brought to eat at breakfast at the hotel (the staff was kind enough to let us borrow utensil set and a plate). you can't walk by pollo rosti without getting sucked into buying some pollo. totally carribean style, very flavor and finger sucking delicious. even the hotel staff recommend them!

we were provided with beach towels whenever we head out to the beach. one of the best perk is (and i really wish i knew sooner) the hotel offer laundry service for only $5 a load !!!!!!!! we did 4 loads, dropped it off in the morning and they were returned to us nicely folded at the end of the day. If i knew that sooner i would not have packed nearly as much clothes as i did. this is a steal !!!!!!!

we also booked caribe shuttle service through them to go to Costa Rica. the boat dock for caribe was a short walk from the hotel.

not sure if i should post this but there was a cat (can't tell boy or girl) black and white coming to visit us every morning at breakfast. he was the cutest!!!! he meowed for affection. was quite picky about table scraps. wouldn't eat yogurt but when i offered him chicken and my bf offered him ham, he was head over heels. We named him chickham (chicken and ham). The staff didn't want it to be a bother to the customers but we enjoyed its company during our 5 day stay.

having a fridge in the room was so convenient and when i had leftovers, the bar staff was happy to heat it up for me.

i would definitely stay here again

You will be amazed at the loading and unloading of the ferries..great view.
Very clean, accommodating for four in the suite. Elevator or stairs.
Staff are personable and accessible.
Walk to the cantinas, stores, eateries, and late night sing a longs.
U.S.A. currency is used.
Water taxies will take you to the other islands. My daughters, son enjoyed the snorkeling.

Room tip: My daughter chose the hotel with the suite. Two rooms, two baths, great a/c.

The hotel is very accommodating. They are extremely knowledgeable about the different tours. Everything they selected for us was perfect. He hotel itself is clean. We stayed on the 4th level and were happy we did. I think some of the nearby music can be heard at lower levels. Breakfast was a treat. I did have a few issues the first day, but everything was taken care of in a timely manner. Wi-fi worked the entire time.

We loved this hotel. We shared the 4th floor penthouse, which was really a beautiful, and beautifully appointed, apartment. The hotel is spotless and everything is well maintained. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful.

My family and I was supposed to stay here, but the snow storm Grayson caused us to cancel. The hotel staff, especially Melissa was very helpful. The process from booking and helping me with questions I had were answered promptly. We will gladly try to stay here when we get back to Bocas. Thank you for all your help.
