For $38 for a triple private room with private bathroom and AC, this place was a bargain. We were the only guests for some nights (low season). Doesn't include breakfast but for the price it's no big deal. Great porch on the water with comfy chairs and hammock. Rooms are cleaned and linen and towels replaced daily. Only negatives are...

We stumbled upon dos palmas by accident when we arrived- and couldn't be happier. We even shortened our stay elsewhere and came back here I stead. We payed 35 for a private room with a queen and full sized bed plus private bath. Could see the water from our window. A beautiful back deck with chairs, a hammock and a... More

$30 for a clean, comfortable double with a/c on a quiet street 3 blocks from the main strip. Fantastic bargain. The rear porch is over the water and has great views of the sunset. Very nice place to relax and chat with others. Coolers are provided if you want to keep anything cold. The rooms are simple and a little... More

After travelling for a month by local buses, 3 days here, 4 days there, we wanted to put down our heavy backpacks for a while and enjoy the sea, the beach and the scenery. We found all that at the small and friendly Hotel or Residencial Dos Palmas. We first made reservations for 3 nights on the internet with Dona... More

This is a great little hostal in Bocas. For $35 a night (with aircon) we had a decent sized room which was cleaned every day without us having to ask. There is a kind of kitchen (a tiny area at the water-side with a sink and some plates/cups and a kettle) which would be greatly improved if they just got... More

Terrific place to stay on bocas isla. This small quaint hotel is directing over the Almirante bay which has the most beautiful views and awesome sunsets. Run by a local family and has been In business over 10 years. It's charming , clean, and takes you back to a much simpler time. Which I can greatly admire. No wifi here... More

We stayed here for two nights on a recent visit to panama and really liked it. The host is very kind and maintains a super clean and safe hotel. Rooms have "old fashioned" decor and are very cute. It's built over the water, on stilts, and has a wonderful shared deck to enjoy the sunset on. The water is so... More

I loved this place. It was clean and off the main street so it was quiet. The woman who ran it was very sweet. The price was very affordable. The sunsets were amazing from the back deck, where you could also jump in the water. We could walk to any place in town.

For $30 a night, this is as good as it gets. Our room was dank and dark, ultimately, who's hanging out in their room in Bocas? The patio in the back overlooking the water will afford you one of the most amazing views of the sunset and place has a totally relaxed vibe all just a minute's walk or so... More

Very quiet hotel but close to the town. The terrace facing to the sea is a great place to relax. The owner sometimes appeared gruffly but she gave us some good advices on activities. The room was spacious and clean.
