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.

As other reviewers have mentioned, this hotel is in a really location right in the middle of the town. Very close to grocery stores, restaurants, and the place to board water taxis for beaches. However, be warned that because it is so centrally located, the noise level is high. Bring ear plugs! The room was clean and had everything we... More

Great location downtown next to the expensive hotels. Rooms clean and comfortable. Upstairs rooms large with balcony (extra $20). Minor downsides; shower head needs cleaning as it's black with mould and reception is pretty unhelpful on most things

Hotelito Del Mar was a really great experience overall. We were looking for the "middle of the road" accomodation on our trip through Central America and we found this great spot in the center of Bocas town. It was clean, private, had a/c and hot water, and also very friendly staff who made a continental breakfast every morning. For the... More

We stayed three nights here, following 3 nights in other places..2 in Bocas Town, 1 on Isla Carenero. Hands down, this was by far our favorite hotel. The staff are so friendly and helpful. We were even able to have our laundry done for a very fair price. The gardens are gorgeous, the room was immaculate, well decorated and the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, it wasn't dear, but wasn't exactly great value for what you are getting. The rooms are a good size, it's clean, and the bathroom works, but it is a bit dark and shabby in the room. The bed is pretty small but I slept fine, the air con is pretty quiet. The location is...

My friend and I stayed at three hotels in Bocas and liked this one the best, even though it was the cheapest. It had everything we needed including A/C, was quiet, in an excellent location, very clean. The staff was friendly and they had a really nice continental breakfast of fresh muffins, fruit and coffee. The only thing was that... More

This place is run like a tight ship and is IMMACULATELY clean. The room was large, bright, comfortable and we loved sitting out on the veranda looking over the town. The patio downstairs for breakfast is adorable, and it's a simple breakfast but homemade (not too sweet!) muffins and strong coffee. We really enjoyed our time here.
