There was a lot of history there. Originally,it was home to the American Fruit Co. It was built in 1904 as their offices. The building itself is all wooden construction,so you will here people next door and in the hallway. 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.

Last Summer I visited Bocas with my Family(Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister & 1 Cousin) and looking for a well located, good quality but no so expensive option we stayed at Gran Hotel Bahia which was just a few steps away from our Landing Boat Pier. The Rooms are so spacious and well design that we just had room enough to... More

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

Beautiful place with historic background, very nice and clean rooms, comfortable beds, warm water, perfect located and acceptable breakfast. Recommended to all who are tired of private hostel rooms with no comfort, old beds and loud neighbors next door. Allow yourself some comfort to more than affordable prices!

I had such high expectations for this hotel based on the photos on their website. And, I realize that those are professional photos, staged to make the rooms look their best. However, our bathroom did not in any way resemble the bathroom in the photo gallery on the website. First, It looked as if the person who put in our... More

I made a last minute booking during the Panamanian "festive season", so hotels were very difficult to obtain after New Year's celebrations. The receptionist over the phone was able to accommodate me for 2 of the 3 nights that I needed, so with little option, that's what I did. The owner Tito, graciously picked up my sister and I from...
