One night was too much. Location was not in the best part of town. Water front, but very noisy water taxies and other boats buzzing by all day and night. Rooms are small and felt cramped. You could hear folks in the other rooms doing things you did not want to hear. Folks returning home after a light night at... More

I booked this hotel for a night through their online booking website. After a very long day I arrived at the hotel, dragged all of my luggage to the reception at the end of the hallway, and was not greeted by anybody. After waiting a little while somebody came over to help me. I gave my name and they picked... More

This was a quiet hotel in what can be a loud town. Rooms are okay but the common areas have great views and are a chill place to hang out. We were able to check in really early after taking the all night bus from Panama City. That was very much appreciated. I would stay here again next time we... More

My Partner & I stayed here recently. At $65/night for a double including taxes and continental breakfast, it was a very fair value, considering other available accommodation in Bocas. The room was comfortable and quiet since the hotel is on the edge of the restaurant/bar district. We could hear the water lapping at the pillars of the hotel which extends... More

My first trip to Bocas Town i stayed at this hotel. It was great i must say, they were open to make meals at any time, served beer as many as you can drink, and friendly staff to accompany you. They are right off of the water with a beautiful view that could bring me back for another visit by... More

We stayed for 2 nights with 2 other couples. The rooms are very clean, air conditioner works well, double bed was fairly comfortable. The bathroom was basic, bring your own toiletries. We appreciated that our room was on a higher floor - less noise. It was lovely to sit in the open air lounge on the second floor and read.... More

Good position right on the water. We stayed one night. No big money, friendly staff. Very close to everything in bocas. Clean but noise from the washing machines. Restaurant directly on the water. I would book it again.

I stayed here from January 22 to 25. The hotel was very basic. Rooms were clean and well maintain. It is ideal if you only need a place to rest at night as we did. We went out to eat everyday since there are nicer places to eat in downtown just a few minutes walk. I will go back to... More

Balcony room is lovely. Street side is quaint and you get to watch the local families across the way. Restaurant downstairs is very decent; coffee is excellent. The staff are very gracious and helpful, responding immediately to our needs. Bikes are on site and the showers are hot! Yay!! Great price and super easy location at the end of downtown.... More
