Bocas del Toro is an interesting place. The Hotel Bocas del Toro seemed an oasis in the midst of a busy beach town. Lots of foot traffic outside, but inside it is quiet and so friendly. The staff remembered us after the first day and remembered what we liked to eat and drink. Our room's balcony was over the street.... More

We stayed at this hotel because our original hotel was not as advertised (you get the idea). It was ideal. Great location, fabulous, impeccably clean room, amazingly helpful front desk staff and invested owner. We are so thankful they rescued us from our original nightmare of a hotel.

We're pleased to know you enjoyed your stay, the friendly staff and breakfast in the restaurant. Prices in the islands tend to be more expensive because everything is brought over from the mainland. More
