Pros: Friendly staff, good mojitos, nice view with hammocks to chill in and very close to bluff beach. Cons: Dark rooms that were very noisy at night (so loud whenever anyone walked above you) with beds that's weren't that comfy at all. A bit secluded and tricky to get anywhere other than the beach, so unless you're planning on eating...

We loved the place! It's right next to playa bluff. After 3 nights I can't sleep well bc our cabina -turtle was right over the water and the waves crashing were so intense I would wake up at least 4 times every night. But the place is unreal! Nadia and Salvatore are amazing hosts / managers.

Tesoro Escondido is the best place to stay in bocas. Situated towards bluff beach away from all the BS of town. Sloths and lots of bird activity with breathtaking views looking over the ocean. The staff are very helpful and make you feel right at home. Kitchen Amenities help for the budget traveler. Brian the bodyboarder is the man and...

Wonderful hotel and highly recommend for the the following reasons: 1. Location- situated in nature! on a rocky cliff with some bungalows steps away from the private beach (not ideal for swimming) It's also a very short walk to Playa Bluff 2. Bungalows - we stayed in Dragonfly, deluxe bungalow that was rustic yet carefully decorated with many charming artifacts...

The young people who staff this wonderful eco style lodge on the surf coast of Bocas Del Toro are amazing. They are extremely accomodating and a lot of fun for a couple of old vagabonds. When we were there there were a lot of surfers who were also very polite and fun. It is very beautiful and the waves pound...

We loved our stay at Tesoro Escondido. We stayed in the Turtle cabina. It was a great space! As others have noted- the waves are crashing right below your deck, so you are lulled to sleep by the ocean... but it can be a bit loud! Private porch with hammocks with a beautiful view. Closest to the ocean we've ever...

The place and location are great, the hosts are super nice too. Oh, and the food is awesome, mainly the breakfast. The french toast and pancakes and the homemade syrup were my favorite. So 5 stars overall. The only one that gets 1 star only is the sloth on the tree that didn't bother to move during our whole stay...

It is an amazing place, quiet, with beautiful details and a very nice owner Monique! Plus the really wonderful surrounding (several beaches meet the jungle) makes this place really special! We definitely recommend!!!

I have been traveling South America for a year and haven't found anything nearly as special as this place. The hostel is clean, beautifully decorated and really gives you a homey cabin feel. Not to mention that it's right on an actual beach which is hard to come across in Bocas. But the thing I was most impressed by was...
