I have written a review of the Lodge after each of our 3 visits..with each stay becoming longer. This time for visit#4 we stayed for 6 nights, the longest ever. The mornings, days, and evenings could not be made more special by each staff member of the Lodge. Our meals were not only delicious but also daily fresh ingredients were... More

This is a spectacular resort for water lovers. My husband and I enjoyed three nights at Punta Caracol. Where else can you sit on a patio and watch fish jump and sting rays float by? The food was fantastic and the drinks were delicious and reasonably priced. A typical dinner included your choice of three appetizers, two entrees, and three... More

I very much enjoyed my 3 days at the Lodge - sitting on the porch and watching dolphins an other sea life swim by. So relaxing, which is what I needed. Snorkeling around my cabana ran into large barracuda and stingray, besides all the other fish. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were wonderful. Dinners were boring -...

I (male) stayed at Punta Caracol with 3 friends sharing a whole appartment which is though for 4 people. We had a double bed upstair (very small) and two single beds downstairs. Positive: Peace, away from Bocas town, silence Negative: Oh boy, where to start: - value for money: absolutely overpriced for the "service" you get. The staff does speak... More

We came for the weekend from Panama City. It is in a beautiful get-away-from-it-all location and peaceful (apart from a few boats). We enjoyed being able to jump straight into the water from the deck outside our rooms and kayaking in and around the mangroves was fantastic. There isn't a lot to do there apart from swim, sunbathe and relax.... More

Spent several days in this quaint little hotel on the water. The pros: service was excellent, from the owner Pilar to all the staff in the restaurant! Office and boat captains, Jorge, Luis, Lionel, Ismael, Stefanie, Norberto and "McGyver". The cleaning staff even washed my daughter's muddy shoes without beung asked. The office manager, Stefanie, helped us with our return... More

This was our THIRD, 3rd, stay at Punta Caracol. And each time we extend our stay. We are totally absorbed in the beauty of the setting and the ambience of the Casitas on stilts in the water. The Casitas are designed to enjoy the splendor of the natural setting that surrounds them by the water on all sides. The owners... More

My stay in the "punta caracol acqua lodge" hotel was terrible. The hotel seems wonderful by the photos posted on the internet but actually it's not that good. The water is not crystalline and you can't find any coral or big fish, only some little ones. There isn't electricity in the room so there's no way to charge the phone... More

This place is truly amazing! There is nothing bad to say about this place. It is everything you would want in a get away. The staff were great! Helpful, kind, friendly and not in a superficial way. The food was excellent, three course meal every night and breakfast in the morning. I cannot say more about the location, a truly... More
