Jack and Lee are amazing hosts. Jack's sense of humor is infectious and several enjoyable conversations were had over the breakfast bar. The location and accommodations are fantastic -- away from the tourist crowd, koko is housed in a residential neighborhood that gives you a feel of life in Bocas. I can't say enough good things -- just go and... More

Great place. The cabin we stayed at was perfect. Very clean and well maintained. Jack and Lee provide breakfast in the morning and were spot on with all of their activity recommendations. They really set our vacation off on the right foot and we wished we had stayed longer.

Delightful spacious cabins suspended on stilts above the water with all needed amenities, including a deck and hammock. The host and hostess are very helpful and always available. The surrounding neighbourhood is not merely "local", but actually verges on "slum" and there are many large dogs barking almost constantly. The local inhabitants are friendly and welcoming. The trip into the... More

From the minute you arrive Jack an Lee make you feel at home. They are great hosts. We arrived early, about 8:00 am but they gave us breakfast and offered a boat trip to star we could join right away. It was the same price as in town ($25) but not over crowded like some of the other boats. The... More

Thank you to Lee and Jack for a lovely 4 nights in an authentic island neighbourhood. We stayed in a cottage on the water. Cabin was clean, cute private balcony to enjoy sunset beers, and great hospitality over the group breakfasts in Lee and Jacks water house. Food was awesome. Jaffles, omelettes, sausages. We didn't eat lunch any day we... More

Jack and Lee and great. Very welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area. They love what they do and it shows. Jacks breakfast is huge and a great way to start the day. The cabins over the water are are private and hassle free. The kitchen is great for cooking your own meal with local fresh foods. Look no further,... More

Where to even start with talking about how wonderful Koko Resort is... I arrived way earlier (9am) than check in and was greeted by Lee. Immediately she made me feel at ease and gave me a place to store my luggage. Then, I was warmly welcomed to enjoy the famous "Jack's breakfast." Wow!! Giant portions, great flavors, wonderful locally grown... More

Spent almost 2 weeks and will be headed there again shortly. Perfect respite for quiet, close, easy, no hassle-leave-me-alone vacation, with quick stroll to town anytime access. Jack and Lee give great recommendations for all the good spots and locals. Thank you for providing completely great housing AND excellent food (included) every morning. We will be regulars.

We just left the cozy orchid cottage at Koko Resort (January 13-19, 2015) We had a really good time in Bocas. Partly because of the great accommodations and partly because of our hosts. Lee and Jack are virtual "Lonely Planet" guide to Bocas Del Toro. They gave us great advice and set us up for a memorable holiday full of... More

We loved our stay at the Koko Resort. These cabins over the water are just like what is pictured on the hotel website. The sunsets were incredible - to relax on the deck of your cabin on the water with a glass of wine was utterly relaxing. The breakfast served in the mornings was one of the best we have... More
