We stayed here for 4 nights. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. Our air conditioner stopped working in the first room so we were switched over to the lighthouse room for the last two nights. The stairs in the lighthouse are extremely steep and the bathroom is downstairs so if you have any mobility issues you may want to avoid... More

I had a bad experience last weekend. I accidentally broke a little piece of the fan (about 10 dollars) I told the owner about it and he told me that i had to pay $80 for a new fan (the fan in the room was two years old and worked properly). I think it was an abuse because the fan... More

Well, this interesting critique that just want to cause damages to the name of the hotel, just because they are not happy. Definitely it is not a pleasant experience when it comes to a damage and you have to pay for the consequences, it is the rule in every hotel, whether you like it or not, or the fact of... More

We choose the cabins from "El faro del Colibri" to stay for a couple of days in Bocas del Toro. It's a lovely place, exeedingly calm and quiet, though. There's very few buildings on the island, not even a real street, only paths to discover the isle. We loved it! The cabins are properly equipped with everything you need and... More

My husband and I ended up spending a week at this property, when we only intended to stay for a night or two. The lighthouse is cool as it is two stories with a bed on the upper level and a couch/TV on the lower level. Only reason we didn't stay in that one was that there wasn't a ladder... More

Where do you start? Upon arrival the woman who checked us in made no attempt to be helpful, and we are not even needy people! It was clear that all she wanted to do was get paid. when we got to the room the first thing we noticed was the air conditioning didn't work, and it is hot and sticky.... More

good day in response to his critics to call it so, I really do not know where to start. They ask criticize a hotel or another and the only things they write are stupid, the airconditioning works only need to use it properly, the same as television, if we're able to use the things I do not know what to...

The cabins are lying on a smaller island just 2 min away from bocas town with a own wharf. When we arrived to check in, the owner welcomes us with a fresh coconut This gave us a great holiday experience. We stayed 3 nights in the lighthouse. Everything was fine it a bit dated but it works A/C in bedroom... More

We stayed in cabin # 5. It is the furthest one out on the water so you only have one neighbor. The inside of the cabin was tastefully decorated which made the place homey but not cluttered. It was light and airy with a modern flair. There are windows letting light in every direction lending to a bright yet cozy... More

Water bungalow concept is quite nice, however boats keep shuffling every minute from very early morning till very late evening! After having spent 3 nights we had to move instead of staying a week as we planned. If you look for seclusion and silence, don't go there. We stayed in villa #3, aircon does require filter change as currently it... More

Good day I wanted to thank you for your commentary, because for us it is very important to know what our customers think, wherever they are sincere. In relation to his commentary, which is not true, we have bungalow near the beach where it is impossible to hear the noise of the boats, for airconditionated and I think only a... More

We had a great time in one of the small houses( nr. 3) above the water. The house was very nice and clean. A very romantic place to be! Every day clean towels and every two day new bedclothing. Even the sand we have taken in was removed from the floor during our stay. breakfast was nice and the lady's... More

I would strongly advise care when booking here and especially when dealing with a person called Adriano Cermenati as we only booked with him the day before and had contact with him re travel arrangements on the day of arrival just to find out he overbooked once we arrived.
