After years of seeing travel books with cover pictures of a house on stilts out over the ocean, we finally stayed in one in Bocas, called KoKo Resort. There are 6 over-the-water cabins, with kitchen, bath & shower, sleeping loft, and an awesome deck with chairs, hammock, and a pass-through bar into the kitchen area (guess where we spent a... More

We stayed at Koko resort for three nights and had a great time. We arrived early in the morning by plane and were picked up at the airport by a taxi. When we got to Koko resort Jack made us a wonderful breakfast. Those breakfasts are the best thing about the resort- always delicious and there is plenty. You get... More

This is a place for explorers; those who want to travel and learn about the local culture. I felt outside of my "comfort zone" in Panama in general, (my language background wasn't very compatible- though I tried) but I actually look for this and was overcome by the hospitality we received here. This place was rustic, welcoming, and beautiful. The... More

We spent two night and three days. Because of Lee and Jack, our friends and ourselves had so much fun. When we arrived, check in was filled with so much information about the whole area. The rooms are delightful, bright and airy. Fully stocked kitchen. The local market is within walking distance. Jack arranged personal activities for us, from taxis... More

The Koko Resort with its beautiful houses over the water is a really nice place to relax and enjoy holidays! We, three german girls, stayed there for ten days in August 2014. It was really the best accomodation we could have choose in Bocas del Toro. Jack and Lee were the heartiest hosts we ever met! We felt very welcome... More

Sept 30-Oct 4, 2014. This was the last leg of our 2 week honeymoon in central america. As soon as we departed the plane into Bocas Del Toro, there was a taxi waiting for us. He brought us to Kokos and introduced us to Jack the owner of Kokos resort. Jack paid our taxi and checked us in. He toured... More

Lee and Jack are the owners of the Resort. Jack makes the breakfasts and is really very funny-my kind of humor. Lee is very efficient and things run very smoothly. The really cool thing is that the Resort is in the residential part of town so you feel like you are a part of the culture. In fact, you are... More

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
