We stayed at Bluff beach retreat for six days in early April 2014. I was looking for a different kind of place at Bocas Del Torro. Checking the Trip Advisor reviews it looked like this was the place. They are not wrong, my wife and I enjoyed our stay very much. We rented the large bedroom suite on the main... More

My wife and I enjoyed every bit of our time at Bluff Beach Retreat. We stayed in las palmas casita and loved the quiet seclusion. Biking, hiking, and surfing were among some of the many options for activity. Ron was a huge help with all our travel needs.

I spent a week at Bluff Beach Retreat with my husband and 2 children and some friends. Since we were a large group of 12 we had the whole place for us. The big house is very comfortable with big bedrooms and bathrooms. The four of us were in the smaller house in the back and it was just fine.... More

We just returned to snowy Canada from an amazing week at the resort. The location is wonderful, Jungle in your back yard and the most beautiful beach imaginable in the front yard. Our morning alarm would be a family of monkeys having a conversation. Breakfast was excellent, fresh fruit grown on the property with a great cup of coffee. The... More

My husband and I spent a week at the retreat in the Casita Las Palmas, a two-bedroom elevated cabin with a full kitchen, bath with excellent shower, and a porch where we spent most of our time. Except, of course, when we were eating the tasty provided breakfast or lying by the pool or watching the waves pound the beach... More

Ron, the owner was super helpful with the reservation, check-in, check-out, recommendations for things to do. The hotel itself is more like a personal residence in that there is a large shared kitchen. The entire place is usually rented out to a single party (as a side note, we could see this place would make a great rental for a... More

My first time to Panama and Bocas del Toro, but not my last. A truly unique experience in my all inclusive package which included: expert yoga instruction, lovely accommodations, an exquisite salt-water pool and unexpected dining quality. I had heard the meals were good, but they far exceeded expectations. Imagine waking to the sound of howling monkeys, enjoying a cup... More

I had the pleasure of participating in a full week yoga retreat at Bluff Beach Retreat. Yoga took place twice daily on an open-air wrap-around veranda, surrounded by the sounds of monkeys chattering, birds singing and ocean waves crashing against the beach. At the retreat, I was able to give myself permission to relax, take in the magic of nature,... More
