We choose to stay 4 nights at this hotel after checking other 3 establishments in Bocas Town with similar prices. Unlike the other waterfront hotels we checked, our room was very clean, spacious and airy (no moisture odors), with all the necessary commodities (good wifi, hot water, functioning air con, safe, fridge and daily cleaning service). The staff is friendly,... More

Arrived in Bocas with no accommodation booked. Went to a couple of Guesthouses / B&Bs and they were awful. The island was filling up fast due to the islands main celebrations and after being turned down numerous times we found ourselves here. The accommodation is bang in the centre near shops and restaurant, bars, taxis etc.The owner was very polite... More

This was the perfect place for our stay in Bocas Town. Centrally located and beautifully renovated. This is definitely a gem. We never had to venture far for food, drinks and adventure. The owner (he's from NYC too!) and staff are super friendly, nice and welcoming. The rooms were kept very clean, are well A/Ced, roomy and very comfortable. The... More

The hotel is really clean. As I sat there people watching, there was always someone cleaning inside or outside. A really unique touch are a couple of parrots in a cage and their cute chatter throughout the day. The bed was very comfortable, the air conditioning was working extremely well. And the biggest plus was the location-my main stops were... More

The rooms are nice and clean. It has a good location, the administrators are kind with tourists and they have a really nice deck in front of the hotel, where it's cool to sit at night with friends. It's important to verify if they accept credit card, because they were having issues with the machines.

My sisters from the states and I spent two nights there. We liked the location. So convenient to everything, restaurants, water taxi's to Carenaro's restaurants, and shopping in Bocas Town. I have stayed there before and recommend it to everyone.

Good place to stay in center of bocas. Hotel is basic and does the trick. Good air conditioning, tv, good size bathroom. No toiletries provided (no shampoo, lotion, soap; etc) but easily a 5 min walk from grocery stores. All in all, glad I stayed!

This small hotel looks to be one of the cleanest public facilities in Bocas Town. They have recently built a wonderful sitting area in front of their Hotel which allows you to people watch while enjoying a nice breeze and out of the hustle and bustle, which is Bocas. The owner informed us they will be also starting a small... More

I thought I did my research. This hotel is NOTHING like the photos or reviews. It's clean and has an air conditioner and TV but that's it. No "lovely balconies" no "fluffy towels" and the rooms have no pix on the walls like in the management photos posted. I was not expecting luxury, but I was very disappointed with the... More
