My husband and I spent three nights at Cocomo. The owner, Douglas, and manager, Galia, are extremely friendly and helpful. The staff is also very accommodating. The back deck is right over the water; it is where breakfast is served. Coffee, juices, fruit and cookies, were placed in the center of the table. There is a menu there, and you... More

I liked this place a lot. I backpacked a lot when I was younger but now I just don't have the patience or energy to deal with staying in hostels. In my old age, I like privacy and quiet and I don't mind paying for it. But this place had all the good things about hostels without the more... exhausting... More

Cocomo was a good spot for our one-night stay in Bocas town. Staff is friendly and helpful, with Douglas giving great restaurant recos, Galia providing good activity info, and the other staff generously helping with your needs. Plus, Cocomo has great open-air patio (an oasis from the Bocas town) and kayaks. This little spot would be even better, though, if... More

We stayed at Cocomo on the Sea for four nights this past July. The location was good if you want to be off the strip in Bocas Town, which we wanted. The walk to the bars/restaurants took only 5-10 minutes and was safe. To be cautious we took a taxi back at night since it only cost 1USDpp. All restaurants... More

Clean Room, helpful and pleasant staff, breakfast ok, nice few from the terrace to the sea. But the neighbor have some childrens o it could be noisy some times.

Great place right on the water! Relaxing decks, short walk to town, all around great experience. Would stay every time at te Cocomo. Perfect for couples! Breakfast out on the deck in the morning is excellant and you can not beat the view. The deck out front allowed our boat to pick us up for snorkling, and our trip to... More

Let me start by saying, it is a B&B, and probably one of the best in Bocas town, given its location right on the waterfront, 10 minute walk from the dock. I also would recommend Bocas town over all the other places, though some will be a lot nicer, if you want some action. The town itself is really Carribean,... More

I have lived in Panama for 3 years - two of which were in Bocas - and Cocomo is my favorite place on Isla Colon. Owner Doug and all of the staff are very accommodating and friendly. The room was cool and comfortable, the shower was excellent, and the deck was exactly what you're looking for in a Bocas hotel.... More

Our room at Cocomo was true "Carribean style". Not fancy, but clean, full of local flavor and exactly what we had hoped for. The shower, very important to me, was fine, plenty of water pressure and hot water. Communal-dining breakfast (included in our rate) on the porch overlooking the sun deck and sea was good, and also a good chance... More
