Hotelito del Mar is the best budget hotel in Bocas. Highlights are very helpful staff, cleanliness and location. It is in the middle of town with very easy walking access to restaurants, bars, clubs, water taxi, airport. There is a local cuisine, clean and very inexpensive restaurant right next door. When walking from the airport walk toward the town then... More

Well located and very easy to find (walkable distance to the airport). It is a reasonable place to stay with a friendly staff. Very close to lot of bars, restaurants, pubs and markets. The staff is always ready to help you.

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

We did not have a great stay at this property. We were surprised because reviews were so good! Rooms are sparse, but clean and well-kept. Nothing particularly special about them, but they have A/C and we found our room quiet and clean. Just seemed a little more basic than we would have expected for the price - not sure if... More

Perfectly located in the heart of the island. Big room with strong AC. It lost 1 star as the breakfast is incredibly poor and barely worth getting out of bed for. Personally I would prefer a safe in the room (or at least a lockable draw), but lacking one is common in this area.

We were a family of 4 staying over night en route to Red Frog Resort. Excellent clean room with air and full private bath. Flat screen satellite TV. Nice continental breakfast in the morning included. Glad we chose to stay here. Perfect location to the main drag and all the action in town. We will be back for sure!!

We stayed for four nights at Hotelito Del Mar in October. The location is within walking distance of all facilities and on a relatively quieter part of waterfront. Nice hot shower and good AC was a plus. Otherwise the rooms are very basic though spacious. Bathroom is very basic and small. There was a 8 foot high wooden shelf with... More
