Charming little guesthouse right at the ocean. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast was mediocre. The owner a very friendly guy (US); however, one particular staff member was far from service oriented; we had the impression she was bothered by every single guest and definitely not motivated to do her job. Shame, as this nice little spot was quite of... More

Our 2 nights at Cocomo leave us with a feeling that the stay was OK, yet if going back to Bocas we'd look for alternatives. We found Bocas to be a very touristic place where at least monthly a new Bed & Breakfast or Hotel opens. Just walking around the streets shows you the activity. And also in the same... More

The location is very good. Away from the centre of town but a short five minute walk to all the restaurants etc. (and to the airport). The room was very nice and spacious, with a ceiling fan and air conditioning. However, there was a series of power cuts on the first night of our stay (during a very warm night... More

Cocomo is a nice little hotel, just four rooms. Direct on the water edge. Hosted by very friendly American man. Good breakfasts. Can use kayaks for free. Excellent location. Visited as couple and liked it.

We loved Cocomo - its in a quiet street, on the water and has a real Caribbean style. Very laid back, private with big rooms with a/c. Owners were great and gave helpful suggestions. A great place to unwind.

Friendly and helpful staff! They helped is with calling taxicabs and arranging tours! Really nice and abundant breakfast, with all the other guests at a big table on the patio overlooking the sea. The front dock with the beds, as seen on the pictures, unfortunately, wasn't there anymore.. I think it is because they are busy with renovating the whole... More

I had a lovely stay at Cocomo. The room was great and right on the water. One of the highlights of our stay was relaxing on the hammocks perched on a dock on the waterfront. The guests and owner and manager were all very friendly and helpful. I hope to come back again someday! Great and cozy place to stay.The... More

Gracious host, great breakfast and near perfect location. We very much enjoyed our stay here. We were concerned after reading some of the reviews on places in or near town being too noisy due to people partying. We didn't experience any of that as the location of Cocomo by the Sea seemed to be perfect close enough to downtown, but... More

This hotel is wonderfully situated at a very convenient distance from the airport, the city center, and the docking stations for the water taxis. With rooms right on the sea, the waves crashing into the stilts make for a wonderful sound, especially at night. Great value for money. However, cleanliness is an issue - there were lizards and cockroaches in... More
