Best location to be right at the center of Bocas Town. 5 minutes walk to the tiny local airport. Nice reception, fast Wifi, room has everything you need. More than clean! Try Birds for dinner, a couple of minutes walk down the road. Best food in town.

The town is small so pretty much any place will have a good location. We chose to stay in Bocas town as it provides options....trips, restaurants etc. This place was managed by nice people as the staff was kind and helpful. We got a free upgrade for our room so we (3 adults with one adult being our kid) were... More

This hotel provides many essentials... mini-frig, a/c, cable tv, private modest bathroom. Its location is a little far from downtown but very convenient to Habla Ya Spanish Immersion School. There are two mercados very close and a nice little three table restaurant across the street where breakfast and lunch are $4 and really excellent. The hotel staff is very friendly... More

We stayed in a triple room in May. The rooms were clean and air conditioned. Decent price. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They offer nice light breakfast each morning that is included. Location is perfect: short walk from airport, right off the main street with bars and restaurants steps away, yet not too noisy at night. Water taxi... More

This location couldn't have been more convenient. So close the everything. The room was nice and we enjoyed the private balcony with the hammock. The staff was friendly, although we didn't interact with them too much. The only (sort of) issue is that they were doing construction outside the whole time we were there, so sometimes you had to deal... More

this hotel is the best you will get for the price. Clean basic b&b type rooms with a/c in the heart of the action. We didn't have any issues with noise however. Staff very friendly and there are two parrots which are fun. We didn't have the breakfast. If you're looking for five star luxury then you're probably in the... More
