We were put in a room on the same side as the local nightclub which has deafening music until 3am. The owner has an injunction pending against the nightclub and we wish him every success in having it closed. Other than that the hotel was a good average hotel, the staff attentive and breakfast was good. It is centrally located... More

I went with my girlfriend to this hotel for a weekend in March 2015 and we were looking for a strategic place right in the middle of Bocas Town to move from there to other places like beaches, islands, etc. We were also looking for a nice room (not a luxery room) to stay and we found it here.

The breakfast lovely including an abundance of local fruits, delicious gourmet coffee and eggs and bacon made to order. The room was clean and comfortable... More

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

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.
