We were really looking forward to staying at Saigoncito's. While we loved the room with the deck and fun atmosphere, there were a few disappointments. It is a good 30 minute walk from the center of Bocas town. This would have been fine as we expected to ride our complimentary bikes all over the island. However the bikes were in... More

We rented Saigoncitos 4,5, & 6. As a family of six, this worked out beautifully! The rooms are well appointed with fun and quirky decor. We made use of the full kitchen and really enjoyed having refrigerators. There is pop and beer available at the reception area for $1. Very convenient and super cheap. We also took advantage of the... More

My friend and I (2 females, late twenties) stayed here for a night to reorganize ourselves and as a break from the often crowded dorm rooms of hostels...wish we had stayed longer as it was exactly what we needed and very fairly priced! Jenny's heart is clearly invested in her cabanas and providing a comfortable and memorable stay for her... More

We stayed here for a total of 5 weeks and was easily our favorite place in Bocas. Jenny and co were always very helpful, the rooms are great and the setting is unique. The free bikes are a nice bonus. Highly recommended!

We stayed at the Boca's Beach House- one of Jenny's properties. It was AWESOME. Jenny is a great host. Very helpful and hospitable. She went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Not sure I would have really loved my stay on this island if it was not for her place. It was a little oasis. The kitchen... More

Welcomed with a beer, we knew instantly that this place has a cool vibe. We loved the colourful room #3, especially the little hummingbirds that came to visit. The staff are super helpful and friendly. This place is a little out of town, but they give you bikes for free. The bikes aren't in the best condition, but they do... More

Jenny and her crew made us really feel at home, the place is a real Caribbean dream, we enjoyed any minute and didn't wanna leave the island anymore : ) the free bikes to use are a great way to discover the island. The room is nice, clean, big and with everything you need to have a comfortable stay. Any... More

We had an extremely nice visit in the Saigoncito cabins. We rented the #1 and were more than happy to see the place for several reasons. We arrived very late (later than expected) and were quite tired and soaked to the skin from our boatride (we had to take a pirate water taxi in the dead dark night and it... More

My partner and I were somewhat travel weary after a few months backpacking, and Panama's Paradise was the best place we could have chosen to rejuvenate! We stayed in room 4 which shares a beautiful, spacious deck (with hammocks) with room 5&6. Each morning we'd have breakfast surrounded by trees and the resident hummingbirds. They also gave us bikes to... More

We had a wonderful time in Saigoncito. The cabins are very cosy and well furnished to make you feel at home. We rented two cabins with a shared balcony which is perfect when you are traveling with friends. You're surrounded by nature and it is nice and quiet, you can hear the sea waking up. It is a liitle outside... More
