This is a quiet little B&B off the main strip in Bocas Town. Easy walking distance to everything. There is no TV - but why are you watching TV? Wifi is good. Lovely balcony and bar area. This is NOT on a beach. You can jump off the deck and swim. Awesome view of the boats anchored off shore. We... More

All the rooms have great wifi, air conditioning, and comfortable beds. Breakfasts is filling and the views are great from the dining area. Located close to... More

It's a wonderfully peaceful place located very close to main street of Bocas, but away from other noisy and crowded hotels. The sea view terrace and breakfast area are simply georgous! Hosts are very helpful and create almost family like atmosphere.

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
