We were turned onto this place last minute by one of the friends of the owner of the last place we were staying. We booked it "sight unseen" because of their description of the location, the surf and it's owners. It is located right on the sand on Caranero. The Pickled Parrot is run by the owners in is over...

We just happened to stumble upon this place when we visited The Pickled Parrot for a beer on a Sunday afternoon and ended up leaving our hostel the next day and stayed here for 5 nights! We met George and immediately liked him, he mentioned he had 2 suites and 50 metres from the bar and we ended up staying... More

What can I say about the Blue Marlin. Maybe it was the time of year we chose to go there. We arrived on Bocas and took a water taxi to Blue Marlin at 8:00 a.m. We were supposed to be picked up at the airport by Yessica who it turned out was on the SAME flight we were on yet... More

I can only say good things about the Blue Marlin. We stayed only 2 nites and wished it would have been more. The Blue Marlin is small and very private. The owners are so warm to welcome and help with anything that you could possibly need on your stay. .."Thank you George and Yessaca" The Pickeled Parrot has some really... More

We literally stumbled onto this place and stayed. The food was awesome we loved the Thai Soup and whole snapper cooked in garlic butter, YUM! We were going... More

Our family of 5 (with kids aged 9,6 and 3) stayed March 2007 (with 3 kids it is tough to get these reviews done). Bocas is an awesome area with tons to do. George and Yessica know lots about the area and can point you to tours, etc. For the price, definitely above average accommodations. large 2-room 'suite' for lack... More

Not sure where many of the previous reviewers stayed but I have to say I don;t agree with all the rave reviews. There are two apts under the family floor above. The apts are older with a very moldy bathroom and the apt is very musty. The view is gorgeous but that is the norm in this area. The nearby... More

I just return from staying at the Blue Marlin last week....a few "corrections" need to be made to these reviews. First, Bocas is beautiful and my friends and I had the time of our lives, but: the Blue Marlin is someone's house and is like staying with a family....it is NOT a resort...Every morning I could hear the babies upstairs....the...
