My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in April. It was a huge splurge but we had a great time there. It's beautiful. Just imagine waking up to calm blue Caribbean waters and jumping in for a quick swim before full cooked breakfast, then chilling out on the recliners watching fish jumping out of the ocean! Service was... More

We definitely splurged by booking here but we after 17 years of marriage we decided to live it up. I'm so glad we did! The accommodations were fantastic to the point that we had to remind ourselves it was real. A lot has been said about the tranquility of the hotel, and it's truly special, but we were most impressed... More

Dont get me wrong if this place were cheaper, I'd be giving it 5. It's an amazing peaceful location, the rooms are gorgeous, particularly the bedroom upstairs. The problem was the price. At $450 per night I would have expected much better. For dinner on Christmas day I had lukewarm lasagne as I didn't fancy the seafood option. This place... More

I have been here 2 times and both were so amazing.. The food was delicious and plenty.. I am pretty sure I gained 5 pounds both weekends.. The staff is nice and helpful, the rooms are cozy and comfortable. A truly romantic place.

Nice location and very peaceful. Food is great and nice staff. Interiors can be better. bug bites are nasty. Snorkeling is easy since you can just get out of the room to do it though you don't see tons of fishes as the coral reef's dead mostly.

We stayed here for a couple of nights as part of our honeymoon. Didn't think much of Bocas del Toro (nondescript backpacker town) but this location was great for a couple of nights. I would echo other reviewers comments - idyllic with very attentive staff offset by poor interiors to the accommodation (ours looked pretty worn out) and a lack... More

My husband and I stayed at Punta Caracol for the first part of our honeymoon - 5 days, 4 nights. It's important for us to give a balanced review so I will give you the pros and cons of Punta Caracol: Cons: -it is in the middle of nowhere (that's the point) so transportation to other islands is a little...

This is an excellent hotel worth the price. It is away from tourist boats and you can relax in your room or swim around the small bay. The food was excellent and you can buy fresh fish from fishermen as they drive back to town. The staff was excellent especially Bum Bum. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody... More
