I stayed here with my boyfriend last week. It was very cool, with the ocean as pools and a great vibe. We loved seeing Dolphins swim past in the evening and watching the barracudas swim around. The party on Wednesday night was so awesome and it was great to have a room there that night to use the private toilets... More

Super cool, super fun. Ladies night is intense so get ready for loud music all night. The swings and trampoline are a unique and super fun addition. The beds are comfortable and clean and I loved it here. Made some awesome friends and had a lot of fun. The food here is pretty awesome too!

The wednesday & sunday partys on the Aqua Lounge are very popular in Bocas but i was really wondering why. Body-checks on the entrance (even for mid-thirty woman from the States). Crowded as hell, the DJs plays just the Top10-charts up and down, NO ashtrays or trashcans on the whole area (most of the lounge is build over the crystal... More

This party hostel is amazing on ladies night(Saturday & Wednesday) but do not stay here. We stayed in a private room which was located at the rear, so somewhat out of the way of the noise. The staff are ignorant & horrible, you stand at the bar for at least 5 minutes before you get served. They don't speak to... More

Beautiful hostel over the sea, with natural swimming pools to jump into. Loved swimming with the fishes, and amazing colour water. Take a walk to the village behind the hostel and you will be transported to another world where you will be struck by the poverty of the local people. Enjoyed the boat trip to the red frog beach and... More

Staff was totally friendly and you can swim around during the day and hit the trampoline and swings while going into the water to take some breaks from the heat and cocktails etc...then it turns into s crazy night club at night which was really fun...no complaints for a small little Island kick it spot. Good times you'll have for... More

Another must goto party hostel in Panama. The man running the place was a little rough around the edges, but he was always happy to help(the staff was a lot of fun). Definetly pay the $10 for the ride to red frog beach (and tip if you can). It was so amazing!! And opt to stay for more than 3... More

I asked some friends that had been to Bocas before and they recommended Aqua Lounge, so I gave it a shot. I got a private room which was a great deal, and met some awesome people. The bathrooms were clean, staff was friendly, and the vibe was really great, as well as the parties on Weds and Sat. Would definitely... More

I read a few reviews that made me question if we should stay there or not, but once we showed up we loved the environment and all the staff were super friendly and helpful. The swimming areas and the rest of the common areas, bars, etc were awesome, and it felt like you could spend all day there. We stayed... More

This place is great for young people. There is pools made from the harbour , trampoline , swings all into the water. There is stuff going on every night and is away from the main island so abit quieter in the day time but close enough to still get over there if need be. Good Kitchen too!
