We enjoyed our stay at Bahia del Sol. Jack and Lee are lovely. So friendly & helpful and Jack makes wounderful breakfasts. The location is good as well, a few steps away from the center and in a quiet, calm neighborhood. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel very much. Jack and Lee are wonderful hosts, always making sure that all of their guests are fine. They also cook tasty and very substantial breakfast while entertaining the guests with their stories and jokes. The room we stayed in (which is on the second floor) had a fantastic sea view, and you... More

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
