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

Tesoro Escondido is a special place on an amazing location. We were lucky to meet the owner Monique who welcomed us and our dog into the hotel/house. Don’t expect luxury, but a warm welcome, nice rooms some with spectacular views. There is a private beach where you almost always can swim and do great snorkelling. If you are looking for... More

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
