American Breakfast included, they were always on time to the airport, an historical place, oldest hotel in town. Service was very friendly. A good place to stay.

La Iguana music played very load,disco,thumping music from 1000 pm until 330 am. we are unable to sleep. I actually... More

This former United Fruit Company office is renovated in the spirit of the town with colourful fabrics and original oak floors. The front desk staff helpfully provided some useful local knowledge regarding restaurants and tours. For $2 you can get a towel for a day trip to the beach. The hotel is convenient to everything in town, including a loud... More

So, my boyfriend and I travelled into Panama and stayed in this hotel on a package we organized in Costa Rica. The rest of our trip was rustic so this was definitely a luxury to stay here. The location is central, but it's a small town so everything is. The hotel itself was beautiful, boutique-y and clean. The building is... More

In general this is a good hotel. It is located at the end of the.main street so its not too noisy even if the street is busy. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The staff was polite and willing to help. Breakfast was continental so toasts and cheese with coffee.

We stayed in two different hotels in Bocas. This one and also Hotel Bocas Town. Both properties locked the front door after about 9:00 pm. This was a little unnerving as it meant we were literally LOCKED IN!! the front door of the Gran Bahia Hotel had a very temperamental deadbolt and it took a few minutes of fiddling with... More
