Great place to stay to see Bocas Del Toro. It's not on the main island but staying on the main island would mean a dirty uncomfortable stay, and for me it made sense to stay at Hotel Oasis where it was super clean and the owner and staff were amazing and friendly. The cost is $1 water taxi per person,... More

I really like the owners which is why it is hard to right this honest review. They were very helpful with activity suggestions and very pleasant. The room was, however, average at best. The location doesn't make up for the average accommodations. We stayed in the suite with the balcony and hammocks for $120 per night. At that price a... More

Thank you very much for your comment. We welcome your criticisms for further improvement. We have spoken with our staff and indeed were errors such as towels as they used a faulty towels, which had to leave the laundry, and did not. The restaurant is a different company from the hotel, take 15 days working in the hotel, but still... More

We had a great room here. Very clean & cozy with a lot of space & huge deck that had two awesome hammocks facing out over the water. The lady that worked the front desk was so sweet & helpful at all times & always made sure we got a water taxi when we needed one. This hotel is also... More

This was our last hotel to stay in on our trip to Bocas. It was nice and clean. The kids were happy to see a TV and have AC again! Ha! The room was very clean and had a nice hot shower! The owners were very friendly and happy to help with anything we needed. Be aware, when you walk... More

Hotel Oasis on Caranero Island is awesome! It is a cute little hotel owned by a family that is so nice and helpful. They let us check in way earlier than usual check-in time because our flight landed in Bocas early in the morning, and helped us arrange fun tours. They offered us coffee when we arrived even though we... More

This hotel has an excellent location a little removed from Bocas Town and Isla Colon, but close enough to get there with a quick two-minute water taxi ride. Beautiful views of some of the Bocas islands across the water. Jose and his family are so friendly and were very quick to help us any way they could- including telling us... More

This is the cleanest place in town believe me, this is a true slice of heaven. We stayed at another place on our first night and were horrified by the unsanitary conditions. The next day we came here after reading the reviews and we were not disappointed. The location is central and ideal, the surroundings clean and safe and the... More

We enjoyed our spacious room, spent time in the comfortable lounge which was on the water, ate in the restaurant with our table on a pier into the water,watched the owners buy lobster from local fisherman, took cheap and fun water taxis, and walked around the island.One warning: the interior of the island reveals a very impoverished population. However, we... More
