Koko Resort is unlike any place I have ever stayed and made my honeymoon a wonderful and unique experience. The owners, Lee and Jack, treat guests and neighbors in the surrounding neighborhood like family. We stayed in the Dolphin, a two-story overwater bungalow. It had an equipped kitchen, sitting room and sleeping area downstairs, as well as a full bedroom with porch upstairs. As other reviews have stated, this is not a traditional luxury resort, but more of a B&B set within the community that allows guests to see and hear what life is like for locals in Bocas. Everyone was incredibly friendly. All staff was very helpful--and Jack and Lee went out of their way to help me be able to feast on local food despite my food allergies and gluten intolerance. The breakfast that was included with the stay changed every day and was quite substantial, featuring hearty dishes and local fruit. The air conditioning was not as robust as we, as Floridians, are used to, but there was a nice breeze, so opening the windows worked to keep us cool. We followed the directions regarding using the storm screen during the rainshowers that sometimes took place and had no problems. The bungalows were very bright and colorful, as was everything in Isla Colon and the surrounding islands. Jack and Lee help guide visitors to the best local attractions, yet we also took time to just relax on the main porch, equipped with hammock.
