Spent 3 nights in Bocas and the hotel was fine for me, our bedroom in the top of it, with a triangle shape hotel, was cleaned and neat as well as the bathroom, not that cheap but not that expensive neither. The view from the balcony was not that pretty just because it was facing to the main street not... More

Hotel Bocas del Toro is my "go to" place each time I visit Bocas. Upon arrival, I am always greeted (by my name, they remember me) and with a big smile. The bar has a nice selection so I have a drink while they place my bag in my room. The rooms are well equipped, comfortable, modern and well designed... More

So where to begin about this hotel? To make it clear from the beginning this is an incredibly good hotel - the location, the service, the room - everything about this place is exceptional and my experience of a 5 night stay is 5* and beyond. I originally checked in for just one night in a standard room but having... More

There really isn't a "bad" location in Bocas Town, so the main differentiators between hotels are service and accommodations. This place has both, especially the best receptionist of all time - super friendly and helpful with recommendations. Would definitely stay again. Tip: just a 10-min stroll from the airport.

Hotel Bocas del Toro has everything you need-friendly and attentive staff, delicious restaurant, and some of the best tropical cocktails in town. The view from my room was stunning to say the least. The rooms are beautifully adorned with nautical décor and quite spacious. I always choose to stay in small boutique hotels or b&b's on my trips and this... More

My husband and I spent two nights here and felt it was a great location for seeing the town, the drop off for the boat taxis or taking trips to the other islands. You are within walking distance to everything in town which is about 6-8 blocks in size. There are a number of restaurants and bars close to the... More

This is prime location in Bocas and not a bad little hotel. The staff was super, from the friendly lady at the front desk to the server who spoke impeccable English in the waterfront cafe. Small room but we weren't there to stay holed up in a hotel anyhow. Centralized so you walk to the water taxis in 2 minutes... More

This great little hotel felt like home for a few days. The location on the water was very pleasant. Breakfast is good. Rooms are clean and large, but shower pressure on the top floor was a little weak. Staff are friendly and helpful. Owner is very pleasant and speaks English.

Highly Recommended! Great location on the main street of Isla Colon so surrounded by bars and restaurants as well as the bar in the hotel itself which opens out onto the main street.
