From the beach across the street, to the daily breakfast, to the comfortable rooms, to the other guests in the Bed and Breakfast, all was delightful! Sharon and Mark (the owners) and Dama the lovely woman who handled the cooking and cleaning were all WONDERFUl. Dama is so sweet and Mark and Sharon had wonderful resources to help make our... More

We thoroughly enjoyed having you two stay with us! You're right about all the guests enjoying each other. There is some friendly magic about that verandah, and the longer guests stay, of course the more comfortable they become. It was a joy seeing you enjoying the beach every afternoon. You had the perfect balance spending time between the action in... More

After long web research we chose to stay at this B&B, and we didn't regret it. It's a nice house with beautiful garden. The location was perfect for us, as we were travelling with our 2 young kids and didn't want to be in the middle of Bocas. The B&B is quietly located outside of town, but not too far... More

We are glad to know that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Sand Dollar. Your suggestion of a pool is a good one. It is on our list of "someday" improvements. On our 3-acre property there is room for it, and we think we know the perfect spot. However, the sea right out front is so nice for... More

My wife and I enjoyed three nights there just recently, everything about it was superb. Location: the Demographic in Bocas appears to be the twenty something group, girls traveling in small groups, lonely guys, a few young couples. You see them rolling their suitcases into town, looking for a cheap place to stay, and I mean all of this with... More

My husband and I recently spent two weeks in Panama. Not until we spent five nights as guests of Sand Dollar Beach Bed & Breakfast were we able to embrace the country's beauty and get a hands on experience from the owners, Sharon and Mark. You could tell our hosts took great pride in their beautiful establishment. They shared their... More

Mark and Sharon made my husband and I feel at home the minute we were dropped off at the Inn. We immediately sat down to breakfast which was wonderful and fresh every morning we were there. The rooms were comfortable and the large porches were welcoming. Mark and Sharon were full of wonderful ideas for things to see and do,... More

We recently spent four nights at the Sand Dollar B&B. It is located just a short taxi ride outside Bocas del Toro town (close enough to enjoy Boca's good restaurants and to have fast access to all the other islands and attractions), yet has an air of a remote location that allows you to "leave it all behind". The rooms... More

From the moment we were greeted at the gate by Sharon and Mark, the innkeepers, we felt we were visiting friends. Sand Dollar offers a comfortable environment, excellent breakfasts, view of the sea, gorgeous garden and comforts of home. Close enough to town for taxis and accessability to all the charms of Bocas. We will return!

A wonderful stay in a lovely four room B&B plantation style, rooms breezy and comfortable on upper floor, with shared balcony to relax and enjoy the beach view, and below owners apartment and kitchen, and balcony for breakfast and shared time with other guests. A great experience that I would recommend to family and friends. The property is perfect for... More

Our stay at the Sand Dollar Beach B&B was very relaxing. It's a bit out of town so it's quiet --- except for the sound of the waves and birds. It's easy to get to town in taxis $1.00/person. It was clean and just comfortable. There is swimming in the ocean across the street, but no beach. They have snorkeling... More

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and found time to relax. A boat ride to Coral Cay would have been your best bet for snorkeling. During high tide on a full moon, our beach is small, but hopefully you enjoyed swimming anyway. It was a pleasure having you stay with us. More
