Great location. Staff were friendly at the bar, but cold at the front desk. This place clearly cuts corners, as they have minimal keys, turns of AC at will, and has weird rules about their safe. Rooms are dreary - poor lighting, lamps didnt work, beds squeaky, thin walls. Bathrooms are like dorm bathrooms. No toiletries provided. The best part... More

This place has basic rooms with small balconies. It would seem that it has seen better days. The staff are somewhat helpful. The included breakfast was average. The price seemed high for what I got, but all of Bocas hotels seem to be expensive.

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. It looks on the edge of town, but its a lovely 5 min walk to the main street and perfectly placed for the delightful 'Restaurant Tom'. Dock has great views, happy hour is very well priced and there are upstairs hammocks. You could spend a lot more money for somewhere no... More

We were in Bocas to explore the town and surrounds so not looking for somewhere luxurious or surrounded by nature this time. If you just need somewhere comfortable to get a good nights sleep after busy days out and about, this hotel is fine - room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, quiet, efficient AC, nice cold fridge, hot...

Had been staying somewhere else then moved in here for a couple of nights-great little hotel-very clean and safe-there was only 1 other couple staying nice terrace overlooking the sea and the back deck and bar is great and a bit secluded. 5 minute walk from the main town and only 2 minutes to some great little restaurants. Supermarket just... More

We had a good experience here. We stayed in a room with 3 beds which worked well for our group. Breakfast was good and served very fast. Coffee is great! The bar serves amazing mojitos. Staff was friendly and found a place to store our luggage after checkout. It's nothing fancy but its clean and you can walk easily from... More

I liked that the hotel was very cozy, they had excellent tips on where to dine and have fun. They also adviced on how much should people charge us in water taxis, buses and ground taxis. They have some awesome music in the bar. Breakfast included was very nice. It included excellent coffee.

If you are visiting Bocas you are probably wanting to spend your days at the beach and your nights at the clubs. The hotel is just a place to rest before you do it all over again. Hotel Vista Mar is a fine place to stay. The restaurant/bar is right on the water so you have amazing views for meals... More
