Shirley is a gem, and instantly made us feel at home! Superb hospitality, excellent Indonesian food, and great happy hour! Off the main street, so quieter. Private balconies, comfy beds, spotlessly clean! $45. Why go anywhere else?

We enjoyed our time at casa max, we extended our stay. Very comfortable bed, clean spacious room with fan and aircon. Private little balcony as well. Comfy area downstairs to sit and relax. Just around the corner from town but far enough to enjoy some quiet time. Overall great place.

What a lucky find I got a private room with a fan and a private bathroom with hot water it's very quiet respectful and super clean. It is not on the main strip so there it's not so much partying around us here going on . I enjoyed playing a game of giant chess being comforted by the house cat.

After walking around Bocas trying to find a private double room for $50 or less we came across Casa Max which was $40 for a lovely big clean room with bathroom, balcony, wifi, tv. Considering others in the same area were $55-77 this was an absolute bargain for what you got. (It was low season) The staff didn't speak English...

This place was pure heaven for me and my two mates, esp. After the horrible place we stayed at earlier. The room we stayed in had a great balcony facing the street, where we could chill out in hammocks after partying all night at the wicked fun (but rather dirty) surfer bar across the street. Alexander (son of the owners)...
