The hotel location is just by a club that runs music to 3-5am,the bfast "buffet" is not a buffet because when u order egg and ask for three instead of two they charge,even ask u if u want bacon and I'd u say yes they will charge extra. Scrambled eggs takes 20-45min to get and the service is bad.

Many thanks for your review, we appreciate all points of view and take you comments to heart. Good news the club next door is sound proofing so the noise will be an issue of the past! Regarding our breakfast - when you were here our new buffet breakfast was new and it is so popular we were doing 70 breakfasts... More

4 stars-NOT! The hotel was clean and the A/C worked, but the price was just too high at $80 for a room with a door that could basically be pushed open. The bar had good drink deals, but they were not open one night. Very disappointing after a day tour in the sun when looking forward to some Mojito specials.... More

Staff is great and the rooms are in great shape! We came in high season and were able to get a room after our first week (first week was new years) here and were very happy with it. Granted, we were on the east side facing the loud bar below (Barco Hundido), but it was much noisier for us in... More

Nice people and nice place. But unfortunately they are right next to the loudest bar in bocas. And the bar owners/managers are the most obnoxious bullies you can imagine. It's really an awful place that should be avoided. Too bad but you can't hear yourself think here, much less the person sitting right next to you. Why the bar is... More

Good News !! The bar next door has agreed to sound proof so a peaceful nights sleep is coming up at Bocas Paradise! You will also find a fully revamped hotel with fluffy towels, a new modernized look, high speed wi fi, premium coffees and the views are still spectacular. We hope you come back and see all the changes. More

Just to put things in perspective, my wife and I travel a lot and stay in accommodations ranging from hostels to luxury hotels. I always review a place within the context of what I paid. That being said, we paid too much. The place was clean, but dated with need for repairs, especially that 20 year old AC that sounded... More

Stayed for two nights. Basically all the rooms at ground floor have a moist-problem: the smell of fungus is terrible. Needless to say, that apart from the smell this is also very bad for your health. We both had a terrible headache the following day (and no, one of us was sober so it wasn`t just a hangover). As extra... More

We stayed a week on Isla Colon and stayed at multiple hotels to find one we liked best. This hotel was our least favorite. We had a king room overlooking the ocean, and it was decent. It felt pretty clean, had a great view and big double doors to the balcony over the water. However, there was a bar right... More

I didn't stay at this hotel but we did go in and have a drink at their bar a few times. Mariela the bartender is lovely and she also organised tours at good prices. The place has a nice, relaxed atmosphere to chill out with a few beers on the deck looking across the water. However, the only down point... More

I stayed 2 nights in a stuffy room. The towels in the bathroom were frayed and desperately need to be retired to duster status. The AC was noisy and generally ineffective. I would recommend it as a last resort. The location is great, only a 5 minute walk to the center of town, and boats can come right up to... More
