We had a three night stay. Originally booked the wrong weekend, Helena had no problem changing our reservations at the last minute. Traveled all over Panama staying in resorts for 10 days before coming here and this is the lap of luxury. Private atmosphere, good company, excellent drink, great food. Warm lightning rains, phosphorescent activity at night in the cove,... More

Ok, the title of the review is cheesy, but hopefully it got your attention. If I ever get back to Bocas del Toro, i will definitely be staying at Garden of Eden again. Bob and Helena are excelent hosts, really laid back, great cooks and have great taste in music! Bocas town is a little hectic for me, Garden of... More

The Garden of Eden is one of those places one feels you will look back on and realize what a special experience staying there was. Everything on the island (including some of the shape of the island itself) was crafted by Bob. I'm a very well travelled geek and engineer, and was facinated by the detail to which Bob constructed... More

My husband and I booked a stay at "The Garden of Eden" for a week. We live in a busy city and needed the R and R. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to experience Bob's vision and the work of art that is "The Garden of Eden". At every turn you find yourself surrounded by nature... More

My wife and I spent a long weekend in July at the Garden of Eden to take a break from our businesses and to celebrate my birthday and we were so glad that we choose this resort. There isn't much to say that hasn't already been written in the previous reviews, which by the way was the reason I chose... More

We spent the second week of our honeymoon in Panama at the Garden of Eden. After a week spent in the exciting bustle of Panama City arriving at the resort was a huge and welcome contrast. This idyllic island resort is peaceful, tranquil and stunning beautiful. The owners Bob & Helena Myers gave us a very warm welcome and advised... More

When my wife and I booked our recent trip to Bocas Del Toros, we wanted to stay somewhere secluded, romantic, and not over-run with tourists. With only three guest rooms, on their own private island, Garden of Eden was exactly what we were looking for. Starting with the property itself, photos we found on the internet can not possibly portray... More

My husband and I spent 3 days at the Garden of Eden and just loved it. The rooms are clean and private with a small back deck that looks out on the water. Helena was an awesome host (Bob was on vacation). She was always available and happy to help with any activity questions or with any other needs we... More

We went there and spent four days and had a really, really great time. The level of warmth and service provided by the owners made us feel relaxed. We made some great friends and I definitely would spend the money to go back! This place as a "must see" for any adventuring soul.

Nice place to stay, but be aware that this is a clothing optional resort. We felt some pressure from the owner (Bob), but still stayed clothed. The food was good and it is truly a lovely spot. Be aware that it is a fairly small island. I wish I could say more, but this is a family friendly site.

WOW ! Six months later you remember you where disapointed with your stay, I am not sure where this comes from, this is unbeleiveable. We have had the most fantastic customers and reviews.
