We were lucky to have one of the two rooms on the first floor with sea view. The room is ok, the reason to come here is more the view. Especially in the rainy season - what could be better to lie in a hammock and enjoy a sea view. And also during breakfast. Apropos. The pancakes. It is true.... More

Very friendly place at the end of the main street. Owner was great and speaks English. Rooms are really nice and the aircon works well. Breakfast is a buffet style..mostly scrambled eggs, bread, cereals, pancakes, passion fruit juice is amazing! Was pretty quiet when we were there off season. They have someone on 'guard' at all times so felt very... More

We were very happy with our recent stay at Bocas Inn. The owner was incredibly friendly and helpful. The view from the oceanside room was amazing and the hammocks were comfy. We live in the mountains, so the A/C was a must for us and it worked great. The included breakfast was delicious! Fresh fruit, eggs, pancakes, fresh juice, fresh... More

If you want to simply chill and have Bocas out your window and front door when you are ready this is your spot. Accommodations are basic, but the vibe is peaceful and friendly. The hammocks give you a view of the bay while you sip your beverage, read your book, or take a power nap. The food is excellent. The... More

Absolutely the best place in which I have stayed. This is a beautiful place in a beautiful setting. I sits right on the water in Bocas Town on Isla de Colon. One could spend all day on the deck/dock on the first floor or on the second floor porch. The rooms are not fancy but are very comfortable with good... More

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.

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!
