I stayed at Lula's for 5 nights, maybe 6. Who knows! Bocas has a way of sucking time away from you.
The property is nice, clean and extremely safe. I usually had a very good night's sleep here. Lula's has a very relaxing upper deck for guests to enjoy. The back deck overlooks a not-so attractive construction yard. And as a result of this, early mornings the boys begin to work which could make it difficult for you to sleep in (depending on which room you are in). That being said, I was usually up early enough to enjoy Lula's breakfast so the noise didn't bother me much and if it did, I'd just pop in my ear plugs.
The funny thing is, the construction was never much of a noise issue over the locals. Sometimes we could hear music from who-knows where that would bleed into the hotel. But it's not like the owner's can go hunt down some noise makers across the town. And out of my 5 nights, that was only an issue once.
I only mention these things so people have an idea of what it's like around Lula's. The reality is, Lula's is much quieter than the main stretch of Isla Colon and anywhere around the infamous hostels.
Breakfast is included and quite tasty! The rooms are extremely clean! The bathrooms are a tad small but at least you have your own bathroom.
I paid $55/night for a single. If you're looking for something more affordable you can consider Lula's hostel which is across the street on the water. It tends to cater to backpacker's who enjoy sleeping at night. Isla Colon is a party island and most hostels on the island are LOUD ALL NIGHT (as in right to 09:00).
