My husband and I had a beautiful stay on this nearly deserted island/jungle property. We were treated like long lost friends. The owners/family were exceptionally accommodating, very interested in helping us to have a good time. The food was exceptional and coffee/light breakfast served to our door at 7:00 AM was a nice touch. The rooms were lovely with beautiful... More

Sitting in a cozy hammock on the patio of your private cabana on the top of a gorgeous hillside overlooking the ocean, sipping a fruity cocktail and observing the lush, perfectly manicured grounds of Hacienda Del Toro, you finally realize what tropical living is all about. The resort is picture perfect; from the romantic white four-point bed hangings to the... More

We stayed for 3 weeks at Hacienda del Toro and I can say that its the best place to get away in Bocas. Its a quick 20 minute boat ride from the main town so you can still enjoy the nightlife and get to meet the friendly people of Bocas. But its a "civilized distance from civilization" The food at...

Hacienda del toro is a ways out of town. The owner (Neal) wasn't too keen on giving rides to town and it's a $30 boat ride to get to there. When we booked HDT I assumed we would be near other bars/restaurants/resorts. Not the case. You are a bit isolated which we liked a lot. We took a horse back... More

I contacted the property a couple of months in advance in regard to our trip which was cancelled and they said they would return my deposit that I put down to reserve the room- I never received it. Don't book this place if you have any reason to believe you might have to cancel!
