Spent 2 nights with 3 youngsters, who enjoyed having a bungalow to their own. Owners and staff are very friendly and helpful and will try to do everything to support an enjoyable vacation. Despite some rainy weather, we managed to do different activities in the area. It is only a shame that most villagers don't seem to be very concerned... More

Quite expensive but worth every penny. Beautiful rooms, stunning location, perfect hosts. Mostly tranquil except for the reggaeton which sometimes blasts its way across the bay from Old Bank. The absence of electricity until 6:30 should be an inconvenience but it makes you appreciate your environment even more. The private nature reserve on shore is perfect for a morning sloth... More

Serenity. We stayed in the honeymoon suite with walkout access to the sea, portholes to watch marine life, bedroom access to the deck that also faced the sunset and the main town on Bastimentos, as well as the main waterway across to Isla Colon, the main island of Bocas de Toro. The rooms were clean, the staff friendly and very... More

Giving a fair rating to a lodge like this is not easy as so many people seem to like this place where I definitelvely don't. Starting with the positive side: the folks in the hotel are very helpful and accomodating and perfect hosts. This "eco" hotel is located at the end of the bay, the rooms consist of a pillared...

Our bungalow was amazing! Everything was so clean & very inviting. The bed was comfortable & everything about it was gorgeous. The staff was always so helpful & so friendly we absolutely loved everyone there! The bungalow was very peaceful & it's feels so secluded while you can still take a short water taxi into town still! You truly can't... More

Incredible staff, friendly onsite family owners. Wonderfully clean, up-kept & private bungalows. Good food. Fantastic local coffee. Solid cocktails at their full bar. Their website doesn't do the location justice. Highly recommended for couples & adult families. Hands down the most comfortable, beautiful, & enjoyable hotel of our honeymoon.

So this is a difficult review to write. The bungalows are beautiful. The outdoor shower is fun as is hopping off your own ladder into tropical water. The bed was super comfy and we actually experienced mostly beautiful weather while staying. We did not encounter any loud music and the sunsets were amazing. However, the food was pretty gross. Actually... More

If this place doesn't wow you, you better consult a medical professional pronto. It's a romantic getaway set apart from the wild life of Bocas. The bungalows are set on stilts over the caribbean and take full advantage of this by offering glassed areas built into the floor where you can see the tropical fish swimming in the clear caribbean...

The bungalow experience was super fun and interesting! The staff at the hotel were knowledgeable and very friendly! They really helped to make our vacation amazing! The rooms were spacious and nicely appointed. The location on the water only added to the nostalgia! We will definitely stay here again should we come back to Bocas for another visit. The loaner...

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in one of the beautiful bungalows on the sea. We were blown away by the quality of the rooms and the private decking area with its own walkway to the sea. We had grand ideas of doing a tour but to be honest, we felt like we had everything we needed... More
