Bocas paradise is a fantastic place to stay. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly and make the stay so pleasant. The location is very central, rooms are big and spacious and the restaurant situated at the hotel does a great breakfast and delicious buffet dinner. We had such a great time!

A couple of friends and I just returned from a two night stay at Bocas Paradise and could not have been more pleased. The ocean front rooms were spacious and clean and the air conditioner unit kept the room nice and chilly. Best sleep I have had in months. Breakfast was good on their lovely seaside terrace and the general... More

We absolutely loved Bocas del Toro and absolutely hated this hotel. The price of the room included breakfast, however the breakfast was less than adequate. We asked for salt for the eggs and a knife to spread butter on the toast and were told "if it's not at the buffet we don't have it." The air conditioning in the room... More

Very helpful staff willing to go the extra mile to accommodate our needs. The manager was flexible and delightful to be with in a new location, they made our visit very comfortable and enjoyable. late night noise from neighboring club was not a problem as the a/c covered the sound for us quite well! Very knowledgable management familiar with the... More

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.

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
