Bocas Villas are a bit past their prime..... not unlike myself! Floors have shifted a bit, doors may or may not close, some lights work, some do not, same with ceiling fans. It is also a bit pricy and not a place you want to stay if you are expecting luxury accommodation.When you arrive in Bocas Town by water taxi,... More

Bocas Villas could be an amazing place but unfortunately it lacks serious maintenance and TLC making our stay sub-par. View is amazing, not a place you want to stay and go into town everyday and do other activities, the logistics just don't make it easy. Our experience and recommendations are below. Our trip started off with meeting one of Phil's... More

Bocas Villas is for those who consider themselves “adventurous” travelers. You are “off the grid” because the house is solar powered and the water comes from a water collection system. We stayed in a house that was only a year old and it was a state-of-the-art residence with modern conveniences. The views from the house are breathtaking, and no pictures... More

Very cool. If you can immerse your self into a little relaxation, you've found the place. Just a hop, skip and a jump from Punta Carocol, you are in a beautiful place. The cabins have everything you need except food and beverage. Unless you plan on returning to town soon, a word of note is for you to take all... More

Bocas Villas was an incredible place to stay - exceeding even our expectations based on the fantastic online photos. The location is a short boat ride from Bocas Town, and the house is well-appointed with everything we needed during our stay. Manuel was a great guide and took us to Playa Estrella for an afternoon. The sunsets were memorable, the... More

After a long search of places to stay in Bocas del Toro we found these villas. I was kind of unsure to stay here because I like to have fun and read on the reviews that the villas are very quite. I got on the villas and I fell in love with this place. I am from Panama and I... More

We stayed here in March and had a perfectly nice time. It was quiet and lovely. We had the last house, and found the accommodations to be up to par to what we expected. The house was clean and adequately stocked/furnished. Gorgeous views, decent snorkeling and boat rental available. Nice to get away from it all. It's the sort of... More

Background: We stayed here for a week. We were in one of the four identical bungalows to the north of the larger bungalows. Our unit had 1 bed, 1 bath. The location is perfect. You are close enough to town to make the trip easily via water taxi (included in our rate!) but you are far enough away that you... More

This place is truly magical. Not a soul for miles. Two double rooms, each with their own toilet, shower and sink. Also each have a balcony. Beds are very comfy although short so not ideal if you are very tall! There is a twice daily shuttle into town included but you can pay $15 for a round trip to town... More

Dear reader and most of all dear Philip, what a wonderful experience we had at Bocas Villas. Flying in from Amsterdam in The Netherlands, where we live, after a 3 day visit of Panama City, we finally found ourselves at Bocas Villas which we booked with high expectations. We hoped to relax and enjoy ourselves visiting the surroundings. Our expectation... More
