We found this place by chance, just by wandering round town, and we're really glad we did! It's a lovely place -polished wooden floors everywhere, clean, comfortable and within easy reach of the town's main strip (about a 3-minute walk), but far enough off it that there's no noise at night. You are by the runway for the town's tiny... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks while we went to School at Habla Ya. It was just a five minute walk from the school and it tuned out to be a great stay. While not luxurious, the place was very clean and well run. Our room was quite large. Alberto and his wife made sure that all our needs were... More

While I may have thought being on the waterfront was preferable, CalaLuna was actually perfect because there was minimal noise at night. The wood finishing and layout makes you feel like you are in a treehouse. I really appreciated the feeling of tranquility, especially with the hammocks. Alberto is a super nice guy and was very cordial and friendly during... More

This is really a superb place to stay in Bocas and has the best food around...Best seafood pasta I have had since being in Sicily, cooked by Alberto and his wife. It is not right on the seafront buy a 5 minute walk,,,however, this is also good as its just far enough away to avoid all the hustle and bustle... More

Walking distance from the airport (if not raining); walking distance to all parts of Bocas town. More expensive than a hostel but my wife and I have long passed that stage of our lives so this did the trick for us. This is not a Marriot/Hilton etc.; do not expect that in Bocas; there were no 'supplies' other than hand... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed it. The room had a lot of pretty wood, air conditioning, a nice bathroom, and a sitting area just outside of it. The owners, Alberto and his wife, are really nice and helpful. Moreover, there is a restaurant downstairs that serves very good food. It's not obvious, but... More

Finding the place was not easy but not that hard, just follow the signs from the main park (Parque Simón Bolívar). The place is clean, comfortable, quiet but not offers greater luxury or a beautiful view from the windows ... which I did not need. The owners, Mr.. Alberto and mrs. Marcela, are extremely friendly, to say the least. My... More

My friend and I had such a great experience at this hotel. We stayed in the suite because it was the only room left, but would highly recommend it if you want to spend a little more money. We each had our own room, plus a living room and a private balcony. My favorite thing about the balcony was the... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed there couple of days, very nice hospitable owners, rooms are clean, prices are reasonable and you have everything you need - hot shower, air con, quietness and it is close to the main street. Try their pizza, one of the best I have tasted ! Cheers !

Great location 2 blocks from town yet quiet to sleep and super clean and modern facilities. Always willing to help and ver relaxed with only a handful of rooms? Fast Internet, fridge and cable comfy chairs throughout so you can have an afternoon drink from your fridge without breaking bank! Would stay over and again if back.
