This review is extremely overdue. We stayed here in December of 2013 and couldn't have been happier. The cabins are adorable with he most incredible views. Make sure to look down as you walk to your cabin as you are bound to see several starfish. His was actually far more space than we really needed for just 2 nights and... More

Koko resort is cool place stay though be warned it is not close to town. To me, it didn't really matter. Coming from NYC, I am used to walking and the distance to town isn't alarmingly far. The taxi cabs are super cheap. The "cabins" are HUGE! It is cleaned daily so when you return after a day at the... More

If you stumbled across this place because of their rating on Tripadvisor and saw the word "resort"... pause... go to their website and check out the "Must Read FAQ"... they have taken great care to make sure guests know exactly what to expect. If the description appeals to you then you will LOVE Koko Resort. If it doesn't... you should... More

Koko Resort Review Just so you know I am 11 years old. I thought it would be helpful to review this resort from a kid’s perspective. I highly recommend Koko Resort. It is a family friendly place where you can enjoy the ocean. The hosts Jack and Lea were amazingly helpful. They are full of good information. There are a... More

Just got home after 6 wonderful days at Bocas. All the reviews are right on - this place is really special and probably the best place to stay on Bocas. Having said that - there are 2 types of people who should not come: 1.) People who afraid of the water and or are not able-bodied. You have to walk... More

We spent four nights at Lee and Jack's place in February 2014. As a family of four who had never been to Panama, we had no idea what to expect. From the minute we arrived, we felt like we were home. Lee picked up the cab fare from the airport and Jack quickly whipped us up breakfast - we've never... More

Girlfriend&I stayed in on of the waterfront cabin for 9 days over Christmas 2013. We had a great time. The things to do around the archipelago are super easy to access from there. Downtown Bocas is a 2-minute, $1/p.P. cab ride or a 15-minute walk away, so one's got access to nightlife and restaurants without the noise. We rented bikes... More

Jack and Lee and created a unique paradise on the outskirts of Bocas Town. Read all about it on their humorous, informative website. Lee makes you feel very welcome. Jack challenges your assumptions on any topic you bring up--and cooks the best breakfasts we had in our two weeks in Panama. Jack and Lee are as much a treat as... More

Koko resort is a special place and the host Jack & Lee try very hard to make your stay a wonderful experience but that being said the place is not for everyone. If you do your homework and embrace the experience you will have a fabulous time, we certainly did. I loved the location just out of the hustle of... More

This property is as advertised. It is located in a residentail neighborhood, which brings local culture to your stay. We found that we enjoyed sitting on our cabana's porch overlooking the water each afternoon and for sunset and would leave the beaches to do so. There is a market (Tony's) within short walking distance. We were about a 20 minute... More
