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

My wife Pam and I spent 4 nights at Garden of Eden just last month and it was perfect for us in every way. It was our own little island, but easy to have Kip set us up with a water taxi (maybe Chingo will spot some sloths for you to see as he did for us) and go to... More

We spent 3 great nights here and loved it! It is such a comfortable and relaxing environment. They are in a great location - completely private but easily accessible to other activities by water taxi. We kayaked across to Red Frog Beach along with a dolphin. Went to sloth island, Bocas Del Toro, Dolphin Bay, snorkeling - the best snorkeling... More

My husband David and I spent 4 nights at Garden of Eden last week. Kip was on vacation but judging by his friends Sue and Dave who took over, he's an awesome guy. They were funny, interesting, attentive and great dinner partners. We ate there every night because Miguel's food was so damn good. Maria's cocktail of the day was... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Garden of Eden and would have happily stayed longer if we hadn't been on a tight schedule. We were met at the dock by the beautiful Zeus and the enthusiastic employees, Melissa and Khia. They showed us directly to our room, offered us a drink, and told us where to find the kayaks... More
