The hotel is right on the water, though only a couple of rooms on the second and one on the top floor actually face the water. Our window looked right at the side of the hotel next door. It is also located right on the main street, so it couldn't be more convenient to all the restaurants, shops, and tour... More

We stayed here for one night when we came into Bocas Town a day early. Location was on the water near the center of town. We had a waterfront room on the 2nd floor. The room was small but clean and comfortable. We had a nice balcony overlooking the water. We chose the hotel based on the location, cost, free... More

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

Dear Brian K, Thanks for your comments. Hotel Bocas del Toro is tucked off the main drag, yet still in the heart of it all, and on the water. You're welcome back anytime, and we'll see you at Happy Hour! 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.

So where to begin about this hotel?
