A quiet place, where you easily can reach the more quiet places, far from the party-city Bocas. Fantastic atmosphere, with friendly employees. Good food and good enough rooms. You have to love the dogs.

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Tesoro Escondido . The best part was the relaxing view, and the beautiful nature all around you when you stay there, it feels like a secluded jungle tree house, miles away from anywhere else. There is a constant sound of the ocean waves which was very soothing as well. Hammocks right over... More

I've lived in Bocas Del Toro for 9 years and have stayed in many different resorts/hotels in the archipelago. When VIP friends/family come to visit, I like to get out of town and out in nature. Tesoro Escondido supplied this in a way that suited my needs/comforts perfectly. The fact that our cabin had a kitchen in it suited me... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Dragonfly room, which was more than adequate for our group of 3. This is a laid back place to stay. Everything was casual and relaxing. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly from the moment we arrived until our departure, especially Maxie and Robert. The food and service at the bar/restaurant was excellent, but... More

Let me preface this review with a snapshot of the past six months of our lives before arriving at Tesoro Escondido. My girlfriend and I had been travelling the world via Asia, Europe and South America before happening upon this little gem. We'd stayed in countless hostels, guesthouses, hotels and resorts. My guess would put it somewhere around at least... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks over Christmas this year. We LOVED it! Situated on its own private beach and only 5 mins walk from the beautiful Playa Bluff, the location was perfect. Its a bumpy drive from town $12 each way was (as long as you negotiate up front). The quality of the journey depends entirely... More

My husband and I stayed at Tesoro Escondido for a week for our honeymoon in October 2013. The rooms and the lodge are outstanding, with gorgeous ocean views and the sound of the waves just below. The property is a short walk to the most beautiful beach on the island. Dolphin cabin was just wonderful and arguably has the best... More

We stumbed uponTesoro Escondido while on our first trip to Bocas del Toro. Monique was very accomodating on the phone as we franticaly sought an alternative after discovering several properties there are closed in September. A pity, since that is the ideal time to enjoy the area and the beaches. Captivating views and a welcoming and intimate experience. Picture an... More

Found this little place online for my trip with my girlfriend in August, and we were certainly not disappointed. This place is owned by Monique and run very efficiently by her and the team. We stayed in the Dolphin cabina where the views are fabulous. Having originally planned on only staying for two nights, after that we decided we wanted... More

We stayed in the Dolphin Cabina overlooking the most breathtaking view of the ocean. Laying in the hammock with the sounds of the waves on the shore was the most relaxing experiences. You can enjoy the private beach beneath your cabina or take a short walk to Bluff Beach - one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever see.... More
