My wife and I spent 5 days in Cabin 5. It was everything advertised and we had a great time. The cabin was perfectly clean and well appointed and had a small refrigerator, which judging from earlier reviews is a new amenity. Breakfast (eggs, pancakes, omelets, yogurt, fruit, etc.) was perfectly fine and certainly everything you need. Service was also... More

after several mails and a reservation we ended upgraded thanks to Lucely, from the Faro to two independent over water bungalows. Lucely is undoubtedly the heart of the whole place, helpful, friendly, made great breakfast by the sea, the perfect host! Although not vey big inside bungalows were really cosy in wood even the bathroom. Extremely clean and serviced. the... More

Cute little cabins right on the water. Contrary to other reviews, I didn't find that you could snorkel right from your door. Water was only about waist deep and nothing to see. Nice view though. Bad sand fleas that bite! Once they start, we were driven indoors. Easy water taxi ride - about two minutes. LOTS of noise from the... More

It's been a bucketlist item of mine to stay in an overwater bungalow, but they are usually sooooo expensive! This was a great option to fulfill that dream, without breaking the bank! Rooms are clean and comfortable, views are gorgeous, and it's convenient to get to Bocas town ($1 water taxi, can be hailed from end of hotel dock) careful... More

Nice place on the water. Would have been better if the hotel clerk spoke at least a word or two of English. Cabana was newly refinished and really quaint-we enjoyed our stay. Choose cabana 5 for the best view but it also has the water taxis so not too quite

We stayed in the yellow huts of faro colibri for three nights. The view from the terrace was perfect and you can swim/snorkel directely in font of the terrace/house. The view is like from a postcard of the Maledives. The only thing which was not absolutely perfect was the loud music from the neighborhood and the water taxis passing very... More

We stayed here 7 nights. The cabinas are cute and comfortable above the water. We had a wonderful time. Night lights under the cabina bring out many fish and sitting under the star is great. Just be aware the taxi boat traffic is always going by and if you are in the farthest cabina they are whizzing by only a... More

I was a bit skeptical coming off the plane, seeing the airport then told we had to jump in a panga to get to the hotel. We arrived at the rickety dock, and everything changed. The bungalows are set atop the ocean, the Italian Proprietor was friendly, and the rooms were great. Not five star but for Bocas around $100... More

We spent 5 nights at this hotel and it was for the most part great! The rooms are right on top of the water. Each room has its own small dock to dive off of and there were constantly different fish swimming around. The rooms have AC and cable TV. The rate includes breakfast. The only downfall was that once... More

We stayed here for 4 nights on a recent trip to Panama. It really was paradise. The hotel is very well kept and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The WiFi is also amazing, along with the AC. You can swim and snorkel right off your back deck. The breakfast, which is free from 8-10, was great. Isla Carenero... More
