We stayed here for 4 nights. The rooms are standard with little frills, but the price was right. The best thing about this place is the location over the water with a private deck. The under deck lighting at night is a fun touch and you can watch some fish from your deck whenever you want. There isn't a pool, but you can swim right off your deck.
It is close enough to Bocas town to see it, but far enough away to escape most of the noise. The water taxis can see you standing on the dock when you want to get a ride, so you never have to call them.
The lighthouse is not real, some people are very upset with this... not sure why?? When we stayed here the owners lived in it, and their office was there too.
The electric water heater in the shower will only work on "medium" but we were not told this. There was some duct tape on the switch, apparently to keep anyone from turning it on "high", the tape was loose and did not function as intended. On the third day the water heater stopped working and when the owner came to look at it (she doesn't speak much English) she gestured that the water heater would blow up if we used it on high, then left. We assumed we would not be getting any more warm water after this, and we were right. There should have been a sign, or some instruction regarding this when you check in.
