We traveled to Bocas on business and were pleased to find that Darion and Dyllan were now managing this hotel. Our room was booked by a friend so it was a nice surprise. This hotel had been neglected in the past few years and the boys will most certainly bring it up to a top notch property. They are already... More

Well done, Bocas Paradise Hotel. We all had a great night at the new restaurant! A warm welcome from host Dyllan and amazing food prepared by chef Darion. Excellent service, convivial atmosphere, awesome drinks and sweeping views of Bocas harbour made for a special night out. Prices were reasonable too. I have to say only 1 complaint...there was just way... More

Upon our arrival in bocas we had no place picked out to stay. It worked out great that we stumbled into this spot in the rain. You can really tell that the owners are putting in the effort to make this place special. There are minor things that need improvements like the shower heads mentioned in the pervious comment. Though... More

Nice rooms, clean and ample sized. Comfortable beds, shower head needed the vinegar treatment, but fluffy towels and clean, clean made up for it. Overhead fan and wall AC you control were great. Taxi 25, one of the main services to Almirante is next door so you do not have to haul your luggage far. Lovely terrace on water for... More

You could not ask for a more convenient location, or beautiful view. Dyllan and Darian are working hard to improve all aspects of the hotel, and are doing incredible work! We enjoyed getting to know them, and look forward to our next visit.

This is definitely a hotel -- and place -- I want to come back to! The new owners are hard at work creating a charming and convivial environment, and we loved our cocktail hour with snacks on the deck.

This is one hotel I will always come back to, Dillon, Darian and Eylen, they were very accommodating and informative you will always see Eylen smiling. Great accommodation for the price. The view at the restaurant is great looking over the Ocean, I did not hear any loud music when i was there.The cleaning staff were very friendly too.

I cannot say enough about the staff, and in particular new owners, Dillon and Darian, who is a So the chef.

The hotel location is just by a club that runs music to 3-5am,the bfast "buffet" is not a buffet because when u order egg and ask for three instead of two they charge,even ask u if u want bacon and I'd u say yes they will charge extra. Scrambled eggs takes 20-45min to get and the service is bad.

Many thanks for your review, we appreciate all points of view and take you comments to heart. Good news the club next door is sound proofing so the noise will be an issue of the past! Regarding our breakfast - when you were here our new buffet breakfast was new and it is so popular we were doing 70 breakfasts... More
