Great location, just off the main street in Bocas del Toro, but at the right end to be close to everything, including two water taxi docks, and the bars in both street 1 and street 3. We even walked to it from the airport! The pay-off is that it can be a bit noisy at night, but nothing too extreme... More

I had read good things about Hotelito Del Mar, so when we came into town and saw it about 1/2 block from Water Taxi 25 we decided to check out the rooms. They had one available and it was very clean and ready to go. We checked in for one night and ended up staying for 2 (lucky for us,... More

This hotel is a bargain for clean, comfortable rooms right in the center of town. The property has a nice garden where breakfast of fresh fruits and coffee is served. The second floor rooms have a balcony with ample sitting area. Beds are great and location is quiet. Owner Danny and his staff made excellent recommendations for dinners and were... More

I've visited Boca numerous times and stayed in a number of its hotels. You can find everything here in terms of a night to stay, and the mass can be confusing. Worse yet, some places have such a severe bug infestation on the rooms and mattresses that it's better to sleep on the street. Hotelito is super clean, modern, with... More

We came upon this nice little hotel in a great location in Bocas Town. The price was very reasonable and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The property was well kept and nicely landscaped with an outdoor sitting area. The best part however, was the new owner, Danny. He went over and above our expectations to make sure our stay... More

Everything's in walking distance. Dan can help you set up any adventure, a taxi to a better beach-cheap-and they really do return in a couple hours to pick you... More

This was our first trip to Bocus, and the Hotelito del Mar was recommended to us by a friend. The hotel was very comfortable, clean and safe. Located right in the heart of Bocus Town, everything was convenient and close. Restaurants, water taxis, tours were all within one block of the hotel. The service at the hotel was excellent. The...

This place was not our first choice, but it became apparent that it was meant for us. We stayed there during the Carnivals, and the staff(Jessica & Oneida) were so attentive and helpful. The Owner Sally was a chip off the old block, but also very loving and caring. Everyday we had breakfast in the patio, and traded stories. This... More

This hotel is great. Best value as far as I am concerned in all Bocas. The manager, Jessica and the staff were always very helpful and kept my room clean and stocked. The location I loved especially if it rained. You could just run across the street to several restaurants. I will definitely come back here someday.
