Stayed for 3 weeks in suite overlooking water. Worth the money for upgrade. I had large patio with great water view. Its a short walk to everything. Which is nice after a long night on the town. Would stay there again.

My review is two fold. First I would like to say that the owners and staff are great. When I checked out to go to redfrogbeach for a few days I had left my passport and over 250 dollars in a pair of shorts. A staff member returned my call checked the room grabbed my stuff, took a boat taxi... More

We stayed 2 nights at the hotel. The room we had was the suite and I honestly expected more. The first night we were there the air conditioner did not work at all. Temperature outside was cooler but couldn't sleep with the balcony door open because there is a very loud bar right next door. Good thing Bocas has warm... More

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.

Under new management Dyllan and Darion were the most gracious hosts! They did everything to make us feel at home and we decided to remain for our entire stay even extending our time in Bocas.

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

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.
