Super nice people. The hotel is clean and well maintained. The food is very good. Location is on the water which means it is great to go around Bocas village as well as on the water.

Visited week of July 5 th. Had two rooms. The rooms were clean and the air was cold. Building was a bit dated and the hot water worked intermittently in one room, but the service more than made up for the shortfalls. The Chef , Jose asked is what we wanted to eat and made to order.

Many thanks for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed our views and food. We have just completed a makeover of the hotel, the hot water in an on demand system that takes a minute or two to get to you. Bocas can be a party town, specifically on weekends, we do however have quite rooms available. More

We were staying on bastimentos and needed a hotel in Bocas town so we could catch an early flight, and this did the trick. The room was conveniently located in town, clean, secure and cheap. It had A/C but no hot water, which was fine for the night. I wouldn't stay for longer, mostly because of the town, not the... More
