This small Eco-Resort is self-sustainable and quite beautiful with it's two tranquil beaches. Not far, is the amazing beautiful Bluff Beach with it's tremendous wave action. This charming resort is all about keeping it real and in it's natural state. The host is gracious and lives right on the premises, which is a good thing.

Where to start? This place is amazing. From the moment you pull up to this multi-levelled treehouse/hillside network of cabinas, you know you are somewhere special. The recycled bottle gecko mural, the large, apartment like rooms (seriously, our room was bigger than our flat in London), the enchanted tree spiral staircase and the secret garden-esque paths, they all add up...

We stayed at Monique and Jim's place 2 weeks. You can hear and see howlers monkeys and we also saw a slot from the terrace eating the leaves from the tree. The food was amazing and the drinks too. It is right next to an isolated beach where you really feel alone. We loved our stay there and will definitely... More

We have just recently stayed at Tesoro Escondido with my husband, and our stay was wonderful. Monique and Jim are such welcoming and kind hosts, they always try to make sure that everything is fine. I happened to catch cold just before our arrival to Tesoro Escondido, and Monique provided me with medicine and care. Oh, and the food there... More

I'm so glad I found Tesoro Escondido. It's a terrific bargain with beautiful grounds, big rambling verandahs with lots of hammocks, the sea is right there and the snorkelling is pretty good when the seas are fairly calm, friendly helpful owners, staff & volunteers. Pretty good for wildlife too - howler monkeys every day and even a sloth. I stayed... More

I've stayed at Tesoro twice for two months and absolutely loved it. It's a great place surrounded with nature and right on sea. It's about a 25-35min drive from bocas town or 40-50min with bike. The taxi will charge between 10-15 dollar, depending on the condition of the road (rain or big waves can damage the road). Some of the... More

We stayed for 3 nights in room 3. Room 3 was really small (queen size bed and small bathroom), but nicely decorated and considering the price this is not a big problem. What I found of bigger problem, is that the room really wasn't clean. The bathroom was clean, except for the soap pump that was covered in black stuff... More

Beautiful establishment off the beaten path on Isla Colon. Charming rooms. Great value. Lovely owner, Monique, who accommodated us in so many different ways. Dining options are limited because of the remote location, but the on site restaurant food is good and there is a good pizza spot within walking distance.
