Koko Resort does an excellent job of telling you what NOT to expect - and that is beauty of what you experience. Jack and Lee level set with you before you even book. This is not a Hyatt or W and that is what makes it so imperfectly perfect. If you are the kind of person who loves to really... More

We recently spent 6 nights in the Gecko cabin, and liked it very much. The cabin was simple and basic, but perfect for our needs. We didn't use the air conditioning much, preferring to open the windows and turn on the little fan over the bed in the loft. There are no screens because there are no bugs. It's different... More

After a bad experience at another place I tried to find another last minute and stumbled upon Kokos.... What a wonderful stumble! Nestled in a quaint local neighborhood, Koko's offers an unparalleled homely atmosphere, with lovely and genuinely friendly hosts. The one night I spent there was marked by wonderful conversations with Jack and Lee, great restaurant recommendations, and impeccable... More

Lee & Jack are wonderful hosts. Jack cooks breakfast everyday, which is included. He adds local fruits that are out of this world. We used his recommended boat taxi for private tour of all the islands. Chris picks you up right at the dock of Bahia Del Sol . We relocated to KOKO after staying at Caribbean Colors house and...

My wife and I stayed at the Koko Cabins this past March and had a great time, should have been more. Jack and Lee are wonderful hosts, do everything they can to make your stay more than comfortable, and have a crazy good knowledge of everything about the Islands to guarantee great outings. Website lays out the truth, not luxury,... More

Jack and Lee were wonderful hosts, helping us find great adventures while in Bocas - and their Koko Resort is a wonderful retreat. So much to do and see in the surrounding area. We can't wait to come back!

Jack and Lee, retired Americans, own this Panamanian Inn. Online they are quite clear that this is not a luxurious resort and it is nestled in the local water-front community. That is part of its charm but it is rustic by European or American Standards. The beds are basic, wood construction (no pillow top mattresses here), there is air conditioning... More

We were so pleasantly surprised with how wonderful this place was! The rooms on the water are great little cabins with amazing views. Jack and Lee are the greatest hosts. We even met another traveler who was on her own and ended up spending most of her stay with us. I highly recommend this hotel for those who want true... More

We are a young couple from southern California. We enjoyed Koko Resort very much. We liked that it was far enough away from the downtown, so we were able to witness and experience some of the local vibe on the island, away from tourists. However, close enough to downtown to walk there in 15 minutes. The resort itself is very... More

Koko turned out to be the absolutely perfect place for us to stay in Bocas del Toro for 12 days while we were visiting friends and our son in this wonderful region of Panama!! The accommodations over the water on Saigon Bay were comfortable and completely met our needs with ample and pleasant living space, water views and reflections, sunsets,... More
