I booked a room in this hotel last minute while boarding a flight into Panama. At first glance it seemed OK, apart from the unfriendly owner, Ivan. Things went very well until the next morning. We woke up to find that one of our laptops and iphone had been completely ruined by the rain. We didn't even have any water... More

I stayed here for a week, and really loved the location, with great access to beaches, restaurants, stores, and Bocas town. The owners are a couple of very laid-back easy-going brothers who are very hospitable, and treated me wonderfully. They are happy to help, call you a taxi (a boat), offer advice, and the complimentary breakfast was great. No complaints.... More

Stayed 8 comfortable nights. Worth the 5 min. boat ride from Bocas Town, feels miles away from the crowds and noise. Tierra Verde gives you a true sense of peaceful Island life. Good food, great swim beach and surfing a short stroll away. Clean and well maintained accommodations. Will recommend to others who are lucky enough to travel to Bocas.

Hello, You state that your computer was damaged due to water coming into the room. Upon inspection from myself into the room with you I did not find any traces of water damage or water coming from the roof. We have gypsum or drywall in the roofs. Clearly if there was water damage you can clearly see it and we... More

The proprotiers, Cookie and Ivan, are like your long lost highschool best friends who you haven't seen in years....but as soon as you do....it's like a day never passed. Whether it's drinking beers on their dock overlooking the water, or in the common area of their hotel, you feel like you've known these two forever. The hotel is simple, sweet... More

The owners, Cookie and Ivan, are attentive and knowledgeable about the area offerings. Continental breakfasts, comfortable rooms on the beach. Rooms with water views available. Medium price range and good service. Walk to beach bars for dining or... More

Perfect place for a laid back and easy going holiday in Bocas. Two very nice brothers run the place and make you feel welcome from the minute you step onto their deck (with private hammock). Had a great time, tnx Boris & Iwan for having us. Even the second time around we had a good and relaxed stay!

The perfect spot for a home base on Isla Caranero. If you want a more secluded and quiet option, this is your spot. It's a $1 taxi ride to the action of Bocas Town (if that's what you're looking for), within kayaking distance of some amazing snorkeling spots such as Isla Solarte and beyond, and within walking distance of a...

Our room was nice and clean with hot water and AC. The 2 owners Cookie and Ivan are super friendly and helpfull. I can recommend this place to... More
