I was traveling with some friends to Bocas. From the airport you can take this to town - about a 5 min cab ride if that for about $2-$5.
It is in one of the best locations - right in the middle of town - on the water - with a couple of restaurants.
From the hotel it is easy to catch a water taxi - walk to many places like a supermarket, pharmacy, bars, places for dinner, and so on. It is at a Y in the road so it sits off the main street so it limits the traffic and also foot traffic in front of the hotel.
Free breakfast included - scrambled eggs, toast, fruit - the usual, nice but no bacon.
Our check in was nice and got a room with a water view with a queen and twin bed. Our place was clean, and I had no complaints. The room (room #10) itself was decent size and the bathroom was small. There was a tub shower - which was not the most convenient but it worked. It had a frig, and also a safe.
We had towels for a day trip to the Zapillas Islands - and they were super accommodating to any requests.
I did not mind the hotel - and it's location is the appeal. The food in the restaurant attached Isla or something like that was very good, I had lobster and loved it.
I don't know what most peoples expectations are - but this is Bocas, and there is not a whole lot going on there - and most the hotels are similar. There are no real nice super great hotels here - they just seem to be more average. Last time I stayed at Cocomos by the Sea and hated the walk to get to town, and it was harder to get a water taxi. Knowing this I opted for El Limbo.
This was nice since it did have the restaurants, which are convenient. It was a good option and would stay there again, if I was to come back to Bocas. It is a budget destination with some beautiful beaches as the appeal.
