This review might sound more negative than I intend it to be but there really is no other way to provide my feedback. I guess I just had way higher expectations of the hotel and Bocas del Toro itself. Nevertheless there are some strong points to it as well. Ill start with these: the bungalows at the hotel are nicely decorated and are all Eco-friendly which is a plus. The bungalows are perfect for two people with a very nice fit out and the novelty of being on stilts on the water - with an opening in the floor to feed the fish! Really beautiful. Secondly, the owners are lovely and the service in general is pretty good in terms of friendliness and attentiveness. Special shout out to Suji who is there most days taking care of your every need and she really is so sweet and genuine. So thank you Suji. It has a bit of a garden behind it and we saw a sloth so that made my trip/year! The major downfall for us revolved around the breakfast/dinner situation. It does say that breakfast is included, when really that consists of toast, jam, tea and coffee. If you want eggs, fruit, cereal, yoghurt, juice etc. it costs extra. And due to the remoteness of the location you have no real choice but to eat breakfast there. That's ok, it's not particularly over the top expensive, however granola and yoghurt translated to cornflakes and yoghurt - which was a bit strange and annoying but we learned not to order it again. The only eggs they do are two fried eggs, or you can get a ham omelette. The fried eggs were cooked in something strange, garlic or something, and so we (and others there) learned not to order them again also. Fruit salad was fine so we stuck to that predominantly. Then there was dinner which was also fine but not a great deal of variety / vegetables - wouldn't be a problem if like I said it wasn't remote and so the only option unless you wanted to go into town or Bocas by boat every night. We went a few times but perhaps we were just lazy! It also costs per person to take a boat anywhere, and we were often ripped off. The hotel doesn't offer any free shuttles to and from town, or the beach etc which is slightly disappointing. You do end up spending quite a lot on water taxis. Anyway, after 6 days it just became slightly frustrating- little things like getting our order wrong (in their defence we asked for things altered slightly, sauce on the side etc but it shouldn't have been too difficult). That's my only criticism. Now for some warnings/tips: Mosquitos in the area are ruthless. Everyone got bitten despite using repellent and I'm not talking one or two, I am talking 108! Also, if you are on your honeymoon I would check the guest situation... I was there with my mother and we crossed over two "intakes" of people - first a few honeymooners - second a bunch of families with young children. Lucky for them they didn't cross over with one another. Anyway other than the food issues it is a lovely place to stay and I hate that this review comes across as unpleasant, I just think constructive criticism will hopefully make them change the negatives and make this place the perfect resort it could be.
