By in-town Bocas standards, I'd give this place a six instead of a five if I could. We spent time here when we came to work with Floating Doctors, a volunteer medical group that provides care to the Ngobe people in their villages on the islands around Bocas. (Yes, that's a plug for Floating Doctors - it's a great group... More

This is a great Caribbean style waterfront hotel in Bocas town, Isla Colon, Panama, complete with hammocks on the waterfront verandahs. There is free Wi-fi. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and nice and the staff very friendly. The bar was good with the combined barman/chef Orlando taking good care. Breakfast was great. The staff were very friendly and I... More

After staying at Bocas Inn I cannot imagine anyone writing a negaive review. The location is convenient and on the water, yet far enough away from the noise of town center. Very secure in my opinion. Great breakfast. Most of the staff have been at this property for a couple of decades and seem to love their work - this... More

Quintessential caribbean-style beach house, complete with hammocks, great garden, sea views and, most importantly, fantastic margharitas. Location is good at the end of the main part of town - easy access to all the bars and restaurants, but without the noise at night. Also fantastic base for exploring the marine park or just relaxing and swimming off the deck. We... More

No tv and water never hotter than warm but nice friendly atmosphere and really helpful staff. Herluciou(think that's how it's spelt)is very knowledgeable about tours and local transport and facilities and help you with your Bocas experience. Nice to arrive and depart by boat!

This is not a hotel, more like a hostel. We stayed here recently and were very disappointed. On arrival we were met by an unfriendly woman and given the keys to our room. There seemed to be only 4 rooms - maybe we were staying in an annex? The rooms were basic and what concerned us was the fact that... More

We stayed at the Bocas Inn for 3 nights in November 2014. Our room was very spacious and clean. The owner of the hotel was such a lovely, helpful, amiable woman. She was more or less running the show on her own and did a fantastic job. Breakfast was plentiful. The position of the hotel is just on the outskirts... More

Ideal place for a calm and quiet holiday. Rooms 1 and 2 are the best as they face the sea. The shops are near by. Though I cannot swim, I enjoyed snorkelling with the help of our tour leader Daniele from Journey Latin America who literally dragged me along, me wearing a life jacket. Saw lots of corals and colourful... More

The location is excellent - not far from all the restaurants and shops on the main street but far enough away to be tranquil. We arrived by water taxi and left by water taxi.

Bocas Inn has a great location; very close to all the activity in town (you can walk everywhere), but removed enough so that you aren't disturbed by all the noise. It’s right on the water with a fabulous view, constant breeze and friendly staff. Each room has its own bathroom (a significant point of note in Bocas) , the rooms... More
