We stayed at Koko last week for 7 nights with our two teenagers (14 & 18). We stayed in the Palm Cabin which was bigger than the cabins further out in the water (and was the perfect size for us). Jack and Lee were just fabulous hosts. Jack made amazing breakfasts for us each morning, helped us plan our excursions... More

My husband and I recently visited Panama as a sort of "adventure honeymoon." While our first three nights at the Trump hotel in Panama City were lavish, upon arrival at Koko were looking at each other with that "this is more like it" smile. Jack and Lee have created an oasis amongst the eclectic structures and happenings of Bocas. It's... More

I stayed here two nights with my friends. The house on the water was incredible. It's a little off the beaten path but totally worth it. We didn't end up wanting to go into town that much anyway. It's closer to beach spots than anything you'll find in town. Lee and Jack are incredible hosts and it was great meeting... More

If you are looking for the ideal getaway that is charming, rustic, tranquil, but close enough to all the action without being bothered by the noise then Koko resort is your place. If your looking for somewhere to sit on your porch in a hammock and watch the sun go down with a local rum in your hand then Koko... More

I visited Bocas del Toro in April and my first night I stayed in a water bungalow over the ocean. The cabin itself was charming and spacious with a loft and balcony, a front porch, a kitchenette and two spots for sleeping. I'm a neat freak and own my own cleaning company so I was disappointed that the cabin wasn't... More

We stayed in 2 over front cabins.light bulbs were out in our cabin and my sisters. Kitchen dishes mismatched and sparse but we didn't care so much but it made it look worn out and not kept up. . We travel the world and understand poverty. There is a dog on property which is great except no one picked up,dog... More

The reason why I rated it "average" is only because is not a luxury resort and that is clearly stated in the website. But service is extremely good and cabins are comfortable enough. We stayed in the Palm cabin and it was exactly what we needed it. It was big, clean and clear. They changed our towels every day but... More

My husband and I don't book accommodations before we travel - we like to get to our destination, explore, and select the best option after seeing them. We found Koko Resort online and luckily when we arrived, they had a cabin available for the week. We stayed in one of the cabins over the water and I think about the... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in May. Jack and Lee are excellent hosts, the cabins are idyllic escapes, and the breakfasts are delicious. It is a little bit of a walk (15-20 min) to the center of town, but we actually enjoyed the walk and felt like it gave us a good sense of the island.... More

Stayed in the Dolphin cabin 4 nights. It was everything that they advertised and reviews raved about. Simple but clean cabin, AC worked. Had kayaks and a stand up paddle board we could use for free. Breakfast was great! Jack and Lee were awesome at providing guidance of fun tours or recognized when we already had a plan and didn't... More
