Well build and well kept place on a beautiful spot on top of a hill on a small island. In many remote places I found quite a weird athmosphere, but here everybody is very open and welcoming. It felt good from the first minute I arrived. There is a safe and clear path to different beaches and on the way... More

I stayed here with a friend for three nights in October 2014. The hotel is on a small islands with a few more houses, but very few people. We had a room with a bunk bed, a double bed and a private bathroom. The bathroom was not completely separated from the room; the walls surrounding it did not reach all... More

I recently stayed at the Boca Brava Hotel with some friends and had the best time. Such a beautiful and easy to access remote location. Rooms were nice and very reasonably priced. The food was great. Yucca frites (picante) are the best. Brad and his staff are professionals who care about Customer Service. So many great places near Boca Brava... More

We came with our own car to Boca Chica and to be honest we were a bit in shock. Boca Chica town feels unfriendly and unsafe, we almost turned around to go to a different place. I am so happy we didn’t do that. We parked the car and took a boot to Boca Brava. This is a beautiful island... More

The hotel is really nice. there are hammocks, there is excellent food and the staff is very nice and friendly. You pay a price for a backpacker dorm but you get the treat of a five star guest. The people know you by the name and help you in everything. The beds for backpackers are really nice prepared with love... More

People who work there are very unfriendly. We went there to have a whale tour; we asked for information and they were vague and at the end of the dinner they told us...sorry no tour for tomorrow. The island is very interesting. The building is quite shallow and old; rooms are clean.

This place has 3 things going for it: scenery, wildlife and good restaurant. Sadly, the rooms let it down.. We chose the cheaper room, as it had a much nicer view, but in hindsight wished we hadn't. The windows were dirty, the mosquito mesh over them was ineffective, the toilet looked dirty, the tap leaked and there were so many... More

As budget backpackers we were happy to find somewhere on Boca Brava which had cheap dorm beds. We had no idea until we arrived that we were actually staying at a beautiful and modern hotel! The room is very basic. Large comfy beds up in a loft room but with no mosquito protection, so if mozzies bother you, bring your... More

The hotel sits high above the ocean on a rocky outcropping offering spectacular views on 3 sides. Remember the long climb up though and consider taking only what you need for the few days if you have a car trunk to leave extra clothes in. The food is good and fairly priced, which is good since the island location makes... More

This is an okay hotel with dorms up a ladder to a loft without mosquito protection. The hotel doesn’t advertise the dorms and they aren’t great, but you’ll virtually have the dorm to yourself for $12/night. The chief staffer sleeps in the room adjacent and had a very loud conversation on his cell into the wee hours one night; it... More
