This hotel was GREAT! It was across the street from the ferry pier. We stayed in a deluxe suite on the 3rd floor. We had a wrap around balcony which was nice. The room had a large fridge, electric stove, plates, utensils, pots/pans, coffee beans, coffee grinder, and coffee machine. Breakfast was included and was delicious.
The lighting could have been a bit brighter in the main living room. Also, the wifi signal was spotty and was in and out. It wasn't too important as we were there to relax and enjoy the beaches.
The hotel has a bar and we would get fresh fruit smoothies--YUM! The front desk was always helpful in arranging taxis and providing advice on what to see. We also had laundry done upon arrival which is $5 per bag.
The hotel was clean and located at the end of the main street in Bocas town. This was rather nice as there are loud bars playing music at all hours of the night but since we were at the end, it was not an issue. From walking around the town, it seems this was (if not one of) the best hotels in the area. There is a grocery store next door (Super Gourmet) which sells the local organic chocolate--delicious. The rooms comes with a binder of things to do and where to go.
Overall, the hotel was great and we would definitely stay here again!
