“Mind blowing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

The casitas at villa paraiso were absolutely phenomenal. The rooms were beautifully kept, the living spaces were so open and beautiful. Every amenity was addressed. The closeness to the main city in bocas was a huge plus. A lot of the culture, cuisine, and attractions were very close or easily.accessible. yet the villa itself was just far enough away to still give you that privacy. And the beach front was phenomenal. Some beaches on Isla Colon are wrecked, but the caring attention and conservational efforts of the cutrall family (casita owners) truly give you your own personal paradise. The family itself is wonderful, very hospitable, and willing to go the extra mile. I thank them so much for all they did and hope that this review will help them, because they truly deserve it. Needless to say, I highly recommend this place and would love to visit again. If your considering visiting Bocas delToro, you should stay at the casitas at villa paraiso.

I and some friends of mine stayed for three days in the beautiful well built and maintained Las Casitas at Villa Paraiso! I can not think of a better place to spend a vacation with my friends or family! The Cottrell family knows how to run a world class renowned vacation destination, and they also know what hospitality is and they know how to personally and professionally show how great they are at it. The accommodations and grounds are a rare and beautiful find for anyone wanting to stay at tropical get away. The pool was always topazy sapphire blue and the Casitas lavishly inviting. On this tropical oasis with its own private beach with the main Villa Wiona as back drop, this place is unstoppable! Unlike anything the island of Bastimentos could offer or any other place Bocas could give. The setting of Villa Paraiso was more than what a hotel would have given us in luxury and elegance and it was just the perfect distance from Bocas town. Just far enough away to feel private but still close enough to restaurants, amazing sites and local attractions, truly the best of both worlds! The comforts felt and the times had there at Villa Paraiso were made by of the storybook paradise like beach,the over the top attention to detail and thoughtful touches accompanied by elegant tropical surroundings of which only this place could provide! Villa Paraiso is more than anyone could ask for. There simply isn't enough words to capture how amazing it is. Thanks a million to the Cottrell for providing such a find!

I stayed here with some friends and it was amazing i'd definitely come back! It was nice waking up the sound of waves and birds every morning. It was very relaxing and tranquil. It was also a lot of fun having the pool and the beach all to ourselves. I also loved the location because it was only about 2 miles outside of town just far enough to not hear the loud music. They provided us bikes for us to use, so it was an easy 5-10 minute bike ride out to town. It's also much nicer staying on the main island of Bocas rather than Bastimentos or one of the other islands. This way it's closer (only a 5-10 minute bike ride) and you don't have to pay for a boat ride.

My wife and I went to Bocas Del Toro and decided to stay at Villia Paraiso. We could not have made a better choice. The accommodations great and the location was beautiful and private. Literally steps from the beach or private pool. While there is no restaurant on site, there are local chefs that will prepare meals and deliver them to you. Taxi's to the main street are plentiful at $1.50 per person so there is no need for a vehicle. Whatever you want to do, the hosts have outlined in a book in the room or they are always available by phone. We will remember this stay as one of the best get-a ways we have ever experienced! And you will too!

After a lot of research looking at hotels, B&Bs, and resorts on Bocas, as well as looking at some of the other islands, we ended up thinking that Villa Paraiso would suit our family very well. And it was PERFECT!

Villa Paraiso has 2 separate Casitas that share a pool and common outdoor kitchen area. This was perfect for our family as we could rent both and have the entire property to ourselves! Included was a stocked fridge, snacks, cell phones with pre-programmed numbers of taxis, restaurants and the owners (they live next door), bikes, pool toys, etc. Angie would bring us treats (brownies, cinnamon buns, local treats) and they were there when we needed them and were invisible when we wanted them to be.

Having the beach right there (with beautiful calm, warm water) and the pool, it was the best of both worlds. We cooked breakfast every morning with saved money and saved us a trip into town (plus my husband makes the best breakfasts). But if you don't want to cook, their son Wes will make a delicious breakfast for you.

Our daily routine was to have breakfast then pack up for the day and head out to our activities by either taxi or riding the bikes into town or down to another beach, then back by 4:00, swim, make pina coladas (in the blender!) and shower for dinner. We would then go out to the road and flag down a taxi. Only $1.50 each to town to dine on a great dinner! Then back, another swim and to bed. The A/C in the room was wonderful! The showers were huge and the water pressure was great!

Stay at Las Casitas Del Paraiso... you won't be disappointed!

Wow….. What a way to celebrate the beginning of our new life together! After the exciting chaos of planning and executing a “DI4” wedding at an old New Orleans mansion…. Villa Paraiso was the perfect venue for a change of gears. Thank you Angie and Steve for having the foresight to plan for guests every need. Thank you for your gracious hospitality and attention to detail, words nor pictures can capture the beauty of this place, provided by the Cottrells and nature.

Awesome! Spectacular! Relaxing! Beautiful! Friendly! Clean! I could go on and on!! Sam and I LOVED our stay at The Casitas! The room, the pool, the surrounding yards, even the beach, were absolutely spotless!! After riding our bikes to the more grittier parts of the town, it was so refreshing to get back to our little casita home and the sparkling clean pool. The sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep each night, and the gorgeous sunrises awakened us each morning. It was close to perfection!! Meeting the Cottrell family was a highligh of the vacation!! Friendly, hospitable, and so caring. They were family away from home. Thanks for everything and hopefully we can come and stay again. A vacation to remember for sure!!! Sam and Lorelei
