Well located on the city with a usefull waterfront deck and view. Service is good but basic, breakfast not included and need to ordered separately, food is good. Looks more appropriate to young clients and couples. Definitely not a 4 stars rating (hard to see it as such) but rather a 2-3 stars

Good afternoon, Allow me to clarify a couple of things. Our rating is a 3.5 star rating and that is based off of our guests revieiws not our opinion. I am sorry that you do not agree with the majority. Also, your price of $99.00 was with an outside travel agency and the options for breakfast were provided to them... More

As we understand it, Bocas Paradise has changed management and really should get a new Trip Advisor slate. We were drawn in by their sign advertising rooms for $49/night. There was very efficient AC in the room. The bathroom had hot water. We did notice that the windows lacked good curtains, and we were on the first floor so we... More

We stayed at Bocas Paradise in Semana Santa for 5 days. We were worried of the noise because of all the trip advisor comments we read before. The room and the hotel were very clean. The restaurant was excellent; we loved it. The noise was indeed a problem, but it wasn’t that serious. You could hear it but the walls... More

We disembarked from our catamaran cruise at 0900 and didn't fly out until after 1600 hrs so after walking up and down the main drag Saturday morning in 95 plus degree heat, we stumbled upon this jewel where for $25 they gave us a room for the day, ate & drank decent food on their lovely waterfront deck, shower, nap...

We stayed Fri and Sat night the week after Carnival. Should have waited a month or longer. Some basic things the restaurants were out of. The hotel was clean, AC worked. We had a main street facing room with balcony. Food in the restaurant was good (seafood bisque was great). The AC masked the noise from the street and nearby... More

Bocas paradise hotel is on the waterfront in bocas. We ( thought) we were fortunate to get a water- facing room with a balcony. We thought wrong. The club next door started blasting music around 4pm and didn't stop til 5 am or later. We got a little sleep with the ac and ear plugs but it was not a... More

I only stayed one night in Bocas del Toro at the Bocas Paradise Hotel. My room was clean and the AC worked great. I was glad of that since it was very hot in town. The water taxis are right at the rear of the hotel. I had breakfast at the outdoor patio restaurant on the water and it was... More

I have just read your review and I must say, what a horrible time that must have been. My name is Joe and I am the new manager here and things are allot different since you visited us last. The management that was here during your stay was questionable at best and for that I am very sorry. I hope... More
