Everytime we come to Panama, we stay on the island. The woman that checks us in is always the same, and she remembers us each time. The rooms arent the best, but for the price, they are well worth it. The kids have a place to place and we can sit on the edge of the water and relax. Will... More

This place was gross. The reviews were ridiculously good when we booked. I see now that people are flooding the site with similar stories to ours. Our first room was an immediate disappointment. It was dank and dark like an old basement. Everything was filthy and the carpet was wet; not damp, wet. The hotel clerk switched us to an... More

The only good thing about the place is the bar next door, it has a very nice ambiance. The rooms are very dated and filthy, the housekeeping staff were very rude, the pool i would not let my dog swim... More

we stayed 3 nights with room facing the bay,with a private deck. Was clean but a bit outdated. Very affordable for what you get. Restaurant had great food and free bands on the weekend. Staff very friendly. Plan to come back again.A plus being on the bay away from all craziness.

DO NOT BELIEVE ANY POSITIVE REVIEW OF THIS MOTEL! The hotel offers discounts to people who positively review this property on Tripadvisor as indicated on a sign at the front desk. When we booked the motel for our stay, I did notice the mixed reviews. I was not really worried because I tend to give people the benefit of the... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Buccaneer and will stay again on our next trip. The hotel rooms are a little outdated but that did not bother us at all. The repairs done to the rooms were not done professionally or if they were I hope they didn't pay much, but still is not a deterrent. The room was clean... More

My Boyfriend and I made reservations three weeks in advance and we were told we had a pool view room,but when we arrived we had a view of the back of the building and the parking lot. When we brought it to the front desk's attention, they were rude and refused to give us another room. Because they open the... More
