Visited midday to have a drink and light lunch. The restaurant was empty so on the way in I asked staff if they are open. They confirmed they were. We waited about half an hour (!) and nobody showed up... I walked again to the bar area where few people of the restaurant staff were talking and asked if they... More

Staff was nice and the view on the water is nice. The food was nothing special. I didn't like the ceviche. We were told it was mixed seafood. It was 95% octopus and 5% fish. Not very good.

Title says it all. Food was not good, service was terrible. Bartender would not leave the pretty girls side to take our order, when we went to him to place drink orders he remembered to charge us but forgot to give them to us. Would not recommend.

Apparently under new owners, or so I was told after our less than great visit. The place pretends to be upscale but lacks almost all refinements. The apathetic Argentinian servers were aloof and slow. No paper in the bathrooms. The appies they served was cold rubbery octopus that tasted canned. Entrees were mediocre at best. The fried fish was all... More

Granted, it seems that Nomad has raving reviews. So wanted to try and book either a day tour or a night-bar visit. Went to their dock and they weren't there for 4-days in a row. Tried through their website but couldn't reserve. Was forwarded to a telephone number. Called the aforementioned number a couple of times over 2 days. Line... More

A “must do” in Bocas del toro. We went there for several party cruises such as the reggae nights and the electro party; it was amazing. Staff is super friendly and professional. We were just to the top on the boat: Very good music, good spirit, and good energy…it was one of our favourite addresses in the island. We definitely... More

Sometimes, the life simply gives you the chance to increase your fun scale.... At this point, the only question is; am I ready for this unforgettable experience, or do I preferred to lay down at my hostel like a sloth!? This boat team works perfectly together to help you to have the most exciting memories to tell at your grandchildren!... More

For the price of a taxi boat to the beach, you get an amazing ride on a beautiful boat. Great set up for everyone to have plenty of room to sit down and enjoy the run to the beach. A drink was offered to everyone to start the tour, great music from the beginning to the end of the day.... More
