It's taken us a bit of time to write this, but feel like we have to get a couple things off our chest... For us, we splurged a bit on this as it was at the end of our 3-month honeymoon and carried over a birthday. We really enjoyed the cabin location (one of the ones right out the end).... More

We had a great time in Orchid and starfish cabins in the sea. They are simple, comfortable and airy so you can enjoy the sea. I recommend at least two full days so you can do an excursion but also just have a day to relax by the water.

This place is a tucked away gem. The owners are a wonderful older couple from America running a B&B down there. Every morning they invite you into their home and cook you breakfast. I don't know about the onshore units, but the bungalows over the water are nice. They are older, but they have character. There is plenty of space... More

My husband and I spent five nights in the orchid cabin. I really liked the location of the Koko Resort, as it was more peaceful than being in Bocas Town. Also in Saigon Bay there was no problem with Mosquitos. Jack and Lee were nice hosts and had a lot of information about the area. Jack's breakfasts were delicious -... More

In short: This was a wonderful experience! There isn't much more that can be said that wasn't said in the other reviews. The cabins are great and spacious, we stayed in the palm with our 16 month old. There was plenty of room for her to run around inside. If you have children be aware that there are no rails... More

We have stayed at KoKo twice and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This is a relaxed and comfortable place tucked into a Panamanian neighborhood with a grocery store a block away. Each two-story bungalow has a full kitchen and deck over the water with a deck for sunning and swimming. Jack and his wife serve a huge breakfast each morning... More

I completely agree with all the great comments that have been written here. Unfortunately I also agree with the one negative that has been pointed out by several reviewers. The ups are great! I took my first vacation in 16 months and travelled all the way from Ireland to be here. Within minutes of arriving I had forgotten all the... More

We stayed at Koko Resort in the Gecko cabaña - it has one matrimonio/queen bed upstairs in the loft and two twin (single) beds on the ground floor. Gecko is one of six cabañas, all on stilts, and these 6 share 1 jetty and huge subdeck. There's 4 kayaks and one standup paddle board - our 2 kids of 10... More

My wife and I stayed 5 nights in June at Koko Resort. We had a great time and the resort is exactly has it was advertised. Jack and Lee are superb hosts and as you can tell from other reviews the breakfast is tops! My wife and I are in our 50's and are looking for a place to retire... More

This place was perfect for our family. It was a nice little cabin over the water. Our kids loved watching the fish and looking for starfish. It was really great relaxing in the hammock during the day and at night. The cabins aren't fancy, and I like that! They are very simple but have everything you need! Kitchen has refrigerator,...
