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

If you are looking to escape into a book & just relax & hang out, then this is the place. We stayed for 6 days & loved every minute. We rented the casita house on top of the hill. Every morning & evening we had howler monkeys right outside our patio. The casita was built on the edge over looking... More

It's a great hotel, with a great menu (tasty fish and chicken was great!). The menu is cheap and worth the money I paid for. They let me store my lunch bag in their restaurant freezer. I slept in their dorm, I was the only one in it.Great stay!

Although this hotel has a hostal dorm room, it's not set up as an ideal hostal environment. It's lovely for couples or families, but there is no common area that makes it easy to meet other backpackers and no place to cook, just a restaurant. There was one other person in the dorm room, so the two joined up and... More

After reading all the comments on Tripadvisor I was not sure what to expect as there are positive reactions and quite negative reactions. First of all let me say that the island is really beautiful and very quiet. The hotel itself is a bit outworn and perhaps could use a little touch up but the prices are fair and the... More

We stayed at this hotel on January 19/2014. We enjoyed the restaurant and the staff were very friendly. Our room consisted of a sort of double-bed bunk, a noisy air-conditioner and a shower shared with a couple of geckos. I would not call the room and hotel luxurious but it was clean. Restaurant and bar prices were reasonable. There is... More

Hotel Boca Brava is a modern, well kept up lodging facility providing an on site restaurant and bar offering exquisite views of the surrounding islands. The rooms are clean and comfortable with plenty of windows allowing an abundance of natural light. Bathrooms are large with a very big shower area. The restaurant offers good food at reasonable prices, and that's... More

Very much enjoyed our stay at Hotel Boca Brava - one of our better destinations/hotels in Panama we visited on our December 2013 vacation. Loved our King Suite for our family of five (three fully grown kids) The view of the ocean from the balcony adjoining the two rooms in the suite was exquisite! Could get the same view from... More

The Hotel Boca Brava is a really nice place. Friendly staff, splendid food and a has a good location. Do not expect any luxury though. The hotel is not so well maintained. The location and the overall feeling of the place makes your stay enjoyable.

If you are tired with the heat and noise of mainland Panama, the Hotel Boca Brava provides the perfect antidote. The hotel's location on a promontory above the Pacific Ocean means cooling breezes as well as great views; if you stand in the restaurant, you could imagine being on the prow of a ship and the 'eagle's nest' above provides...
