This hotel wasn't worth the price I paid. It was a nice hotel if you get a room with a balcony but I got an inside room that was musty. It was also next to a bar that plays music late so bring earplugs.

We stayed 3 nights here & we really couldn't complain about anything. The food was good, everyone was friendly, not too loud & the room was comfortable & clean!

This place is great. The rooms were clean, AC, comfortable etc. Our room had a "view of the strip". It wasn't much to look at so grab an ocean view if you can. Still a very nice balcony though. The free breakfast was good. The bar was also very cool. Happy hour drink specials were GREAT. Its right on the... More

I stayed here with a friend of mine with initial plans to stay only for a few days - but fell in love with Bocas town and we decided to stay for the whole week. Hotel Bocas was great and was able to accommodate our change in plans and also upgraded us, which was wonderful. It was very clean and... More

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.

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
