First really read their FAQ page....this will count a lot of people out especially women. Its is very basic and rustic and you will see bugs you are by the water ....no mosquitos though and I just killed the roaches when we saw them mostly after the rain and their were just a couple. The A/C worked fine, the toiletries... More

Jack and Lee are the best. From organizing day trips and cooking lovely breakfasts, to providing hours of entertainment (Jack has some great stories) and sharing knowledge of Bocas, they were the ideal hosts. The property is lovely, as well. Nicely maintained and very comfortable. And the view from the dock is worth the stay alone. I passed a good... More

Jack, the owner, will cook your breakfast each day and get you the tour service and taxis that keep you sightseeing. I had a very rustic bedroom with private bathroom and the most peaceful view of Saigon Bay, which is on the backside of Bocus Town. I was able to walk to the top rated Spanish Language school, Habla Ya,... More

If you've never been to Bocas/Panama before, there are a handful of reasons to stay here: - It's incredibly safe and out of the way. Jack and Lee will call you a cab whenever you want one and they'll be there in a few minutes to take you wherever you want on the island. Taxis are $1/person. - The owners,... More

Our experience at Bahia Del Sol was not as expected. While the hotel itself is decent and the concept is charming, the surrounding neighborhood is covered in trash. The water smells of sewage and is not swimmable (at least we did not want to swim in it). While these factors may or may not out of the control of the... More

Bahia Del Sol is 100% as advertised if you took the time to go to our website and read our FAQ. We are NOT a 5 star resort or 5 star Bed and Breakfast we are a unique family style B and B located inside of a 3rd world Panamanian neighborhood. That is how we advertise on our website and... More

While check-in is at 3 – we arrived on Wednesday around 11ish and were immediately greeted by Lee and shown around the property. Lee and her husband Jack have an assortment of rooms offering different views and options. Some have AC, some have TVs, some are large and some are small. We decided on number 5 which had Sky satellite... More

This is my wife and I 4th time staying here. Yes, 4th time! We spent 6 nights/7 days in the Starfish Cabin which is right over water. Its one of 2 direct ocean facing cabins. Got to see the sun set every single nite of our stay. The cabin has A/C but we never used it. Opened windows and enjoyed... More

For me, this B&B is an outpost of old-school hospitality nestled in stunning Panama. I would recommend it as a great place to stay to my friends and family. The B&B is located in Saigon Bay, about 1.5 miles from the tiny Airport terminal. Although not intended to be a luxury property, the property is beautifully maintained and my room... More

We spent 3 nights in this hotel and we had a really nice stay. We spent the first night in the main house, our room was just above the kitchen so it was a bit noisy during the morning. The two other nights we were in the other house (casa rosada), it was a really nice room, quiet and with... More

Stayed for three days in this amazing spot. My hosts Jack and Lee were friendly,helpful and professional. My room was clean and spacious. The shower and hot water were copious and the breakfast served by Jack each day was delicious and healthy.
