I had the please of staying in two of the cabanas here, one with kitchenette and private bathroom, and one with a shared bathroom. Both offered a lovely jungle porch and quaint place to sleep. I absolutely loved staying here and the hospitality is top notch. Not to mention that bicycles are included to rally around Isla Colon. I can't... More

Jenny's bungalows were very cute and charming. There were free bike rentals, and the first day we took the bikes out, my chain fell off the bike. We called Jenny and she called and paid for a taxi to come pick us up. You feel like you are in a secluded area in the middle of the rainforest although you... More

We stayed at John's place - Vista mar. and as the name promised, we were situated directly on the sae, falling a sleep to the sound of the waves. Really, really nice and laidback staff. Had an amazing time and would definitively go back. Great area to stay at Isla Colon if you want to keep a little distance from... More

Rooms are not nice, big gaps in floors and walls. Just gross. I didn't sleep well b/c of bugs everywhere. I didn't mind geitkos, at least they eat the bugs. Overall, paying 100 U.S/night is a major rip-off. We enjoyed our trip up until our stay there. We couldn't wait to leave. The only nice thing I can say is... More

We really enjoyed our stay here! The place has everything I wished for on a island holiday ( except the beach but you won't find this anywhere in Bocas town ) , Clean, great Caribbean and holiday atmosphere , green ( lush and beautiful gardens ) , quiet, great location ( away from the busy town center but close enough...

We stayed at the Valerie Emmanuel apartments that are run by Panama's Paradise. The apartments are set back from the street and seem like the best kept secret in town! The rooms were amazing, the communal kitchen had everything we needed and the hammocks are perfect. The cleaners came every day to check if we needed anything and always had... More

This place is brilliant. Feels like being at home, without being at home. The staff here are wonderful, and credit to them for what they have achieved. Loved the humming birds flying around the balcony :) the whole place has such a nice welcoming atmosphere. But you won't enjoy it if you want to party- find a place closer to... More

We stayed in an apartment with kitchen and it felt like home. The equipment and the room were very clean and nice. The staff changed everyday the towels. It's so nice that u can use the bikes the whole stay! Location is good, cause it's more peaceful than in the center and it's still so short distance there:) thank u!... More

Panama's Paradise is a complex of different types of rooms in Saigon, a neighborhood that's a 15 min walk from the center of Bocas. Saigon is quite; you can not hear the loud music playing all night in the center of Bocas town, but it's close enough if you want to go ($1 taxi). We stayed in the Alsibiades Apartment... More

If you're coming off the plane from a high-strung place in the Northeastern United States, like I was, expect a major culture shock and then a huge, happy readjustment of your values and expectations. This is a place elegant in its efficiency and simple joys, like raindrops falling on the beautiful greenery all around you, the very hospitable cabanas, and... More
