We got a room for $22 a night which was good for Bocas. A nice terrace by the sea where you can jump straight into the sea which was really nice. However the kitchen is poorly serviced and the rooms are small and not so clean.

Let's be clear. You get what you pay for here. This place was cheap and that's what I wanted - so don't take this as my chance to moan. I possibly should give it 3 stars in that context. For a cheap price here is what you will get: a simple room. Some have air com. A simple bathroom. A... More

At $35 a night, we thought it was worth it. Limited times for hot water are posted at the front desk. Saying that, we did not have hot water before checkout, even though it was during the posted times. However, we had a large room, cold A/C, comfortable beds, no bugs and really enjoyed sitting out on the deck. Our... More

We arrived in Bocas with no reservations and booked a night here after looking at a few places on the water. The deck over the water is the highlight of this hotel that feels more like a hostel. Sheets and towels were clean, bed was comfortable and a/c was nice also for white noise for room we booked right over... More

My wife and I had hopes of staying in a different hostel that was reccomended to us by some staff in a hostel in Puerto Viejo. Little did we know when we went to Bocas there was a large festival going on that attracts a lot of local tourists, so many places were booked. When we arrived off our water... More

My husband and I were on our honeymoon going to Costa Rica and Panama. We had been to quite a few hotels and hostels at this point and nothing came close to being as horrible as this place is. We arrived by boat to be greeted by a man who immediately wanted to take us to a "good" hotel that... More

My girlfriend and I stayed there for four nights. Room was ok for the price we payed, big room with AC and clean bathrooms. However, the hotel staff was not really service minded and we had no hot water what so ever, even when we asked the staff for help. But it's not all, usually I lock my valuable things... More

Stayed here a few nights and just thought there had been bugs at the beach biting us. Wrong. I stayed with a group of 5 in a few different rooms and we were all attacked by bed bugs. So disgusting. The staff is terribly rude and crazy about getting their money. DO NOT STAY HERE.

This is the worst hotel I've stayed at. Not angry about it, but it's true. No soap, no towels, no blankets. Ceiling looks like it's about to cave in, with shotty patch work and wiring all over the walls and ceiling. Walls block none of the sound from street and hallway. Sharp nails sticking up out of the wooden floors.... More

I was told there would be hot water from a certain hour in the morning and in the evening - there was none, ever ( I stayed in the hotel for 4 days). The staff was not helpful at all, asking us not to cry over that matter and that if we were not happy about it, we could check... More
