We found a taxi that would make the trip to Hotel Bocas del Mar and were glad to take it. When... More

Great stay! The property is beautiful and well maintained, we loved the bird feeders with fresh fruit. We ate all our meals at the hotel restaurant and the service and food was excellent. The fish was fresh and prepared perfectly, I loved the Greek salad and the desserts were amazing, good prices too. We rented a double kayak for a... More

Very lovely and elegant resort. The staff and rooms are exceptional. This would have been a 5 star except some issues with the water. It turned dark and could not take showers. I am sure it is temporary and will be fixed or has been fixed. But a wonderful experience!! Peter (GM) was very attentive as well as Ray and... More

Thank your review- we are pleased you had a good stay at the hotel and thank you for your recommendation. We apologize again for the temporary & unexpected water cloudiness you experienced, which was fixed within a few minutes once we became aware of it. This was caused on the day a new, upgraded water pump was being installed at... More

We stayed two nights at Bocas Del Mar and had a wonderful time. The room was very large - decorated in a modern/luxurious style - with plenty of storage and a nice terrace with sea views (we were in a king bungalow). The grounds/gardens/pools are in immaculate condition. Lara, Alberto, and Peter were extremely welcoming and provided great customer service... More

The Bocas Del Mar hotel is a beautiful site with very attentive and caring staff. Food was good as without a car we ate all of our meals at the hotel (it is a little isolated, but of no concern to us). The boat trip the next day was very nice as we shared it with just one other couple... More

Beautiful place to stay longer than two nights. Privacy, quietness, cleaness, spectacular views, excellent staff , good restaurant. We were a family group with different ages among us and we were all very pleased. Even though the rooms are built at different level ( terraces) a person in a wheelchair can perfectly move around.
