La Iguana music played very load,disco,thumping music from 1000 pm until 330 am. we are unable to sleep. I actually got dressed,went down to the street, It was impossible to stay in bed.. Then there are the locals at Bocas Barnaq,just below us, as well. So....been the two issues it was VERY,maybe even extremely noisy. The locals were only noisy till about 2 am. LOL.

There were some good things. The staff was wonderful,the breakfast was great and the rooms were very comfortable and clean..but...
