This hotel was between the three choices we could make on our tour, and we chose this one because it is on the main street. For me there are just two things that are a must, the AC works fine and a clean bathroom and this hotel meets those requirements very well. My room did not face the main street... More

If you are a bar fly and intend to get to bed late this hotel will serve you well. If your intent is a good nights sleep, seek other hotels in a quieter location. The noise from the adjacent bars is rather overwhelming if you forget earplugs. The location of the hotel is right in the middle of Bocas, close... More

Average cost, nice bed, cable TV, hot water. Kinda thin walls, check out time a little earlier than most places. A restaurant downstairs should give a discount for paying, hotel customers. Overall nice, but On Main St, and a little noisy at night, but it's Bocas, it's a nightly party in the main drag.

Pros: The room with 2 beds wasn't small, it was fairly spacious, Built with cheap but nice looking materials, Pretty cozy And it even had mini balcony with a small table and two small chairs. The location is great: the supermarket is just crossing the street, it's very close to many restaurants and nightlife. Quiet even though it it in... More

This is one of the best hotels in Bocas Town due to their location. They are in the middle of Bocas Town. Restaurants are located a few steps away. Grocery or convenient store right in front of it. Their rooms are comfortable, personnel very friendly. WiFi is included. The only thing I did not like is a tickling noise in... More

I stayed with my boyfriend at the Hotel Laguna on Easter for 3 nights. Honestly, I wouldn't have stayed more even if I had had the time. I would like to make clear that I am quite demanding in cleanliness specially, I don't really need luxury, only a clean tidy space. As well, I like open spaces and fresh air,... More

The hotel is not on the water front but it is only a 5 minute walk to the water front so this is not a problem. There is a very good snacky restaurant just opposite and two others on the same side of the road as you turn left out of the front door. The rooms look out onto an... More

As inexpensive hotels in BT go, this is a good on. NOT on the water, but the view of Bocas' Main Street from your patio/balcony is excellent people watching. Rooms are spacious enough and clean; bathrooms too.

the reception was not really helpful, quite noisy (in off season!), no seaside, rooms was also ok but we´ve seen more better rooms on our trip. BUT we are not able to evalute value for the money because the hotel was in a package

If you don't know Bocas del Toro yet, this is a good option to stay at when visiting Isla Colon. This hotel is really centric, not water side but is close to everything (water taxi, supermarkets, transportation, restaurants, and the park). Even if there's a lot of people in the main street, the rooms are quiet enough for a good... More
