The rooms are small but clean. North side is very noisy due to the nightclub next door - kept us awake until 5am. Hot water was hit or miss. Staff was very nice and helpful. Convenient location for downtown.

Many thanks for your review. We are working on the noise issue but as you said its the north side, please feel free to request the south side as the quite option. I am so pleased you found our staff friendly and the waterfront location convenient. More

This has a great location in town, it was quiet compared to other places. The room I stayed in was pretty big compared to other places. The owner is just fantastic and super accommodating. Was really nice that they had breakfast included.

Four of us (two parents and two middle schoolers) had two suites on the north side of the hotel. One room that is near the east side had a better view of the water. The other room faced a huge steel tower that was for satellite receivers. One room's AC was loud and should be replaced. Hot water is another... More

The staff were nice and helpful. The breakfast was average. The music from the bar is loud and we had to switch rooms. Nice part is that its right in the middle of town. I think this hotel has some potential if some money were spent on decor. Missing the opportunity to serve drinks from the back patio in the... More

This is a budget hotel and it was perfect for my two week stay in Bocas. Excellent staff, very friendly. And clean!! Cheaper than El Limbo and better. Please note that my rating is relative to price. This is NOT the Ritz Carlton. You will hear the A/C laboring all night, the window coverings are stained and threadbare, the tiles... More

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.

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
