We loved Kipp and Zeus and they are lovely hosts. We stayed in the house away from the main hotel. It was perfect. Kipp was very attentive and the whole experience was very special. He set up water taxis and other activities. When we ate at the main hotel is was delicious and they paid a lot of attention to... More

Awesome place to stay away from it all, Sue and Dave are perect hosts an the resort is clean and well maintained The boutique nature of this place is enforced by the fact there is only 3 guest rooms which means serenity is easily obtained. The food is spectacular produced freshly by Megual the inhouse chef. Overall a very pleasant... More

If you can't afford to buy your own private island, you can at least spend time on this idyllic island, Garden of Eden resort on Isla Solarte. The owner, Kipp, and his beautiful dog, Zeus, will welcome you at the boat dock and escort you through the lush gardens and up the hill to the main area. There is full-stocked... More

We just spent 10 glorious days at the Garden of Eden. From the moment we were greeted at the dock we felt like long lost friends who had just returned home. Su and Dave are the perfect hosts, arranging anything we needed and allowing us plenty of time to enjoy our favorite vacation activity – doing absolutely nothing! Between our... More

David and Susan were perfect hosts, professional and engaging. They cheerfully took care of our every need, arranging tours, transportation and various individualized needs. The facility is quiet, peaceful, clean and entirely relaxing. Great as a relaxing haven away from everything. Easy tours to Zapatias and the Green acres Chocolate Farm on Dolphin Bay (an absolute must-do tour, see separate... More

I recently stayed at Garden on business for three wonderful nights. After working all day it was a delightful way to end the day . Sitting on the patio, conversing with other guests over a glass of wine. The rooms are quiet, extremely clean and the food and hospitality rate the greatest. Kipp left and zeuss was feeling low.

From the owner, Kip, to his dog, Zeus, to the rooms, the views, the food, the service, the cleanliness...everything. This place was amazing. I felt right at home and right at peace from the moment I stepped on the beautiful grounds. And there are resident red frogs too! I stayed as part of a yoga retreat, and we had ample... More

The Garden of Eden is my most favorite "secret" spot in Bocas del Toro. It's secluded, so I wouldn't recommend it to someone who expected to be in town everyday. But for getting away, relaxing, enjoying nature's beauty and eating well, you can't find a better spot in Bocas! The service is superb, the food incredible, and the ambiance unforgettable.... More
