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. The breakfast was one of the best I had in Central America - lots of fresh fruit ,bread, pancakes & cheese eaten downstairs right by the... More

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

I stayed at Bocas Inn for 5 days, felt like I was at home. I did have the place to myself as it was "off-season," but I cannot imagine the staff providing anything but exceptional service as they catered to all my needs, including arranging expeditions, restaurant recommendations, sights to see, bicycles to rent for easy touring of the Penninsula,...

Bocas Inn is a very tranquil spot right on the water. I can lay in a hammock reading a book and enjoy the sounds of tropical birds in the trees all around me.
