Great location with the restuarant right at the hotel we were able to have a wonderful dining experience watching the sunsets while enjoying a bottle of wine. We were able to check out the snorkeling tour to cayo zapillas which is a must see. Great Hospitality , great food comfortable rooms with everything you will need.

This hotel is run by the most wonderful family. It's only a short water taxi ride from the main island so therefore is perfect for relaxing & unwinding. The hotel restaurant is really good and well priced. Rooms are clean, bathroom is a bit small and dark, but that's only one setback on a otherwise great hotel.

The beds are comfortable and has really good air conditioning! The food is amazing especially the lobster! You also hail a taxi boat to their dock!! The owner can ring his son to taxi you around the different islands of bocas del toro! I do recommend this place if you intend on staying on bastimestos island!

The hotel itself is ok, the room is adequet with airconditioning and hotwater. The problem for us was the location. While the hotel is clean, you can not say the same for the rest of the island with rubbish everywhere including the water. There is nothing to do on the island except take a 20-30 min walk over the hills... More

Well we are sorry that your time was'nt what you expected. The island and hotel has made great improvement in many areas. Project Clean and Green has made this island trash free. In slow season the meals may take longer to prepare but being we are fully staffed meals should take no more than 20mins to prepare. The island offers... More

We booked for one week and paid half as a deposit. We were told we had until April 10 to cancel for a full refund. We cancelled and have yet to be refunded- cancelled April 8. The hotel charged our card in 24 hours but we can't seem to get our money back! BEWARE!!!

Sorry for any inconvenience . Are cancellation policy states if cancelled or modified up to 90 days before date of arrival, no fee will be charged. If cancelled or modified later or in case of no show, 50% of the total price of reservation will be charged. As we are a smaller hotel cancellations effect us greatly. More

Everyone here was so hospitable to us. Luis and his family really know how to make you feel like you are welcome. Their restaurant is fantastic home cooking style. The rooms are very clean and they do a great job maintaining the place.

Fantastic location "on the sea", with wonderful carribbean views. Room tip: The front rooms upstairs have the best views, two directions. We liked this more "remote" and "less developped" island better than the town at the main island. The downsides are of course that you need a boat to go to the beach, and if you want to go to...

The view from room and reassurance are amazing. The room had a fan and air conditioning. Staff was very friendly. It is on bastimentos island.....which has great beaches, but not near hotel. The island doesn't have a lot of entertainment, so you might be taking a boat to isla colon often. The boat ride is short and beautiful, but it... More

One word to describe Bastimentos Island is Local, so if you wanna live the Panama Caribean culture this is the place to go, and I only have good things to say about their people and the hotel which by the way is definitely the best place to stay. But there are also some down sides of it, like the water... More
