I want to start by saying that we had an amazing time at this hotel! The setting was fabulous...a quiet paradise. However, as previous posters, I will caution people not to expect luxury. The hotel is basic, but clean.
If you are not looking for luxury, but for relaxation, then don't let the cover of this book fool you. The pool was fabulous, the view from our room marvellous and the ocean front restaurant as relaxing as it gets ( provided you are not in a rush...and know that food quality and taste can be inconsistent...smoothies were good though!).
They offer a shuttle into town roughly every 4 hours, which is great. While Bocas town is wonderful, 4 hours there is probably a bit much so cabbing there or back at $2 per person is a good option.
If you are a backpacker looking to party, Bocas town is probably better, but if you are looking to enjoy the quiet of a beach with the proximity to Bocas I would not hesitate to recommend Playa Tortugua!!!
