We had two nights and the room we had was newly remodeled with a nice TV but the internet upstairs is very weak. In the lobby is a good connection. A little trouble some that no one told us of the places have different codes. At this time the pool is out and nosey in the day hours for I... More

I purchased a 2-night stay for this hotel from OfertaSimple and the accommodations were great. Upon my early arrival, they secured my baggage while I went into the town for breakfast and to look around. Before heading out for a tour, they were able to have a room available and ready for check in. Also secured bags upon early checkout... More

I had read other people's reviews on Swans Cay, and must say they were correct on a couple of things. First, there definitely IS a mold problem with the rooms; the moldy smell could be felt the exact second you entered the room. To me it was just annoying but to someone with allergy/asthma this could be a huge issue.... More

We went to Boca for New Years without making reservations, this was the only place that had a room. We were shown two rooms, they both smelled bad. We were told the room in the main building was $260 and the room in a building behind the main building was $250. We were discussing the price and were finally told... More

Staff was very friendly and helpfull all the time, specially Yarisbeth who helped us start to finish. The rooms were confortable with brand new a/c split units. Internet connection was fast. Breakfast buffet was very complete, staff toasted bread upon request.

We arrived with no accomodation sorted in bocas so decided to treat ourselves to a night in a hotel before checking into a hostel down the road. After one member of staff informing us that there were three rooms available we left to get our back packs and on returning a different member of staff rudely told us there were... More

I was late booking for my visit to Bocas and it was the only hotel I could find. This is without doubt my worst hotel experience in 20 years traveling. The hotel staff were sour and surly throughout my stay. I arrived early (8am) and asked for an early check. They refused saying I had to come back at 3pm.... More

The place is nice and the staff is very helpful! I must say that the food isnt the best and the kitchen service is bad. The pool is nice for a few minutes but to deep to enjoy. The rooms are very nice and comfortable!

The pictures don't show the reality. The hotel is much better than it is shown in the pictures and the people are really really nice. After looking around in Bocas town, this was for sure a very good choice and good value of money! I would definitely recommend a stay there Cheers, Judith

The hotel is very close to the airport, attractions, and bank (only one ATM on the island). As lther reviewers have mentioned,the staff makes it seem like any requests or questions are a bother and are rarely helpful or pleasant. Rooms are outdated, but large and clean and a good value given we paid under $100 for a large room... More
