The Garden of Eden is a tranquil oasis secluded from the hustle & bustle that surrounds Bocas Del Toro. It is located on the tip of Isla Sloarte and is seperated by mangroves making it feel like you are on your own private island. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are very clean and all have ocean views! The pool... More

My parents and me stayed in this amazingly beautiful resort for a week in April 2015. EVERYTHING about it was perfect - we couldn't have wished for anything better. The service offered was incredible. They always knew what we wanted before we had even asked. The meals cooked by the resorts chef were everyday incredible delicious and he always adjusted... More

This place does not have an actual beach, but it doesn't need it. you can schedule trips to Isla Colon and enjoy Bluff beach or take a water taxi to Zapatillas key for the day with a picnic basket( I highly recommend this) Also red frog beach is right across the Island. You can snorkel of the back dock. you... More

We stayed here in early April for the second half of our two week honeymoon. We enjoyed it immensely. Hammocks, swimming in the pool and in the sea, laughing and talking with the staff and other guests who were from all over, playing with the dogs, eating delicious Caribbean food (try Miguel's hot sauce!) and generally feeling so welcome and...

My wife and I honeymooned there earlier this month. While the grounds are beautiful and secluded, the best part of our stay was the people. Dave and Sue are excellent hosts and Miguel (the chef) has a talent for simple, yet delicious local dishes. We felt like members of the Bocas community, rather than tourists. Keep it up guys! -C.B.

So if you read the review before mine you will just have to know that the people must be nuts. They have two very delightful dogs and Dave and sue are amazing. The food that Miguel cooks is out of this world and while Solarte is calm it is only 10 minutes from bocas. This is a wonderful place and... More

Only stay if you like Roaches big enough the help with your bags, Dog Poop on the walk ways, growling dogs when you walk to the restaurant to eat. and a good electrical shock when you open the cooler to get a drink. along with refusing to refund for the nights you do not stay.

Life off the grid at our bed and Breakfast offers a unique stay for those wanting to experience eco-tourism in the tropics. However, being next to the ocean with the high humidity and salt, corrosion does happen and once again we apologize that the refrigerator was acting up and was not detected by the staff in time for immediate correction....

If you are not into the busy life of Bocas, this is definitely the place to stay. It is a secluded paradise set in its own tropical garden on the waterfront. Accommodation is limited, but as a result one gets to know the other guests and the staff quiet well. Eating is communal and Miguel, the chef, provides meals far... More

Staying here will easily be the highlight of your experience when visiting the Bocas Del Toro area. Staff are fantastic and will make you feel at home. The chef is talented - good enough that we cancelled our dinner reservations in Bocas town. Some things to be aware of: -Don't expect unlimited hot water for your morning shower -There is... More

We stayed for a few nights at New Year and had a super experience. Host Sue and Dave are gracious and attentive, but not in-your-face. Ask them for local recommendations, or a boat ride to Red Frog beach or Bocas Town, or whatever. Sometimes you don't even need to ask. I got a bit of sunburn and Sue offered to... More
