Old construction, but well conserved. Very well located in the center of the isle. We had a room for 5 persons which was clean. Quality of sleep was good. Breakfast included and was ok. Little delay on towel services but not a big issue. Interestingly, the hotel has a nice pool.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a while during our trip to Panama. The hotel is clean, secure and had very friendly staff. The breakfast was pretty good, but the restaurant was always closed. Close to all the stores and restaurants in town so the area can get noisy, but it was quiet while we were there. The hotel... More

Me and my husband came to Panama for our honeymoon vacation, and looked for a good classy hotel, that we can rest in, and found out that this place is much more than we expected! We received a lovely room with very comfortable king size bed, balcony, big and clean bathroom with big shower, and 2 swans made out of... More

We stayed here 3 nights. We paid $88.00 per night. The pool was really nice and cold. The rooms were okay. & big. The bed was comfortable . Good location. The breakfast was skimpy. And you hoped there would be food left when you got there to eat. The price was high in our book & the hotel needs some... More

Stayed here as part of a group and think this is one of the few options in Bocas Town suitable for large groups. It's close to the main things like restaurants and boats to the mainland. The closest beach (Sandfly Beach, polluted and nothing special) is about 10-15 minutes walk. The place looks rather old but the central areas with... More

Room smelled of smoke, price for breakfast changed after eating, easily heard music from nearby bar inside the room. The staff was less than helpful and the rules kept changing. There seems to be endless hotel options in bocas, I'd stay somewhere else.

Better than we expect, room is small but functional. Compare with the Caribbean suites we were before, it is much better value and half the price. I recommend it. Only one off, the mattress is as hard as marble. And the front desk does not give you advise on excursions.

We were 7 people and we got a huge room full of beds, everything is super clean and the price was more than affordable. Half of us left earlier than the rest and they let us stay in the big room maintaining the price per person, very cool people that work there! Oh, and the girl at the front door... More

We stayed here for only one night and the room we got which was in their other building across the street, was clean and spacious. The wifi worked quite ok in the room but would just "die" occasionally. The breakfast however was terrible. The only eatable thing being their American pancakes. Really poor.
