Yes, this is a great location for vista and nightlife - if you are under 25. The staff are friendly, the food is nice..but if you are using the facility to relax ...forget it! To be fair, it is probably the fault of the local authorities in a Bocas not the hotel as the noise levels at night from bars... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Bocas del Toro for four nights over the Christmas holidays, and though it was definitely one of our pricier stays during our trip, it was well worth it! The room was beautiful and the air conditioner was a god-send in the humidity. Our balcony overlooking the street was a great place to enjoy... More

Carla the owner and the friendly staff were amazing. Always willing to be of service and that the hotel owner came and sat down with guests and interacted. You don't get that nowadays. Watch out for Rudy the bartender he makes a mean drink. Happy hour was always fun :0 Rooms were clean and spacious. Beds were comfortable. Great hot... More

I feel like we must have stayed in a different place than all these people with rave reviews of the service and friendly staff. For us, it was quite the opposite - the hotel was lovely, but the staff sort of made the experience "meh" for us. We arrived early for check-in, which we knew, but it was our only... More

Nice location, friendly staff and huge breakfast. Best value and large cool rooms. There is a large chill area outside the hotel by the sea perfect for when it's sunny. Quiet nights good A/C near to good restaurants

We rented their best room. It had clean comfortable beds large bathroom and you couldn't ask for a better view. The staff here is friendly and always making certain your needs are met. The owner, an expat, also very nice. Welcomes all comments. I would stay here again.

I stayed in Hotel Bocas del Toro for 3 nights last week. Some highlights were a friendly helpful staff, a dining area on the water, and excellent daily happy hour specials.

We stayed a week in Bocas and switched hotels almost nicely to find one we really liked. While we decided that this wasn't our top pick for the best bang for your buck, it was absolutely gorgeous.
