The local family managing it were the most welcoming people. We got free welcome drinks and advices for every trip we did. The huts are clean and lovely decorated. Stayed way longer then originally planned..... For a reason :)

Up until this point my general attitude towards writing reviews has been if a place really impressed me I write a review- I don't like bagging small businesses out so I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt not post poor reviews- however this place changed my attitude as we booked it based on the excellent reviews it...

Hello AoifeNiSh, Thank you for taking the time to review us and I am sorry it turned out to be a bad one. There are somethings I would have to agree with you on but some things you noted that are not entirely true, as I believe. I believe a 10 to 15 minute bike ride is a slight exaggeration... More

We chose Panama's Paradise based on the good reviews. We had emailcontact about the reservation and were looking forward to our stay. Upon arrival it turned out we were bot staying in saigoncito but an alternate apartment Alsibiades. This was mentioned to us in the reservation, but it was dissapointing that we did not get free bikes. The living room... More

We stayed here during New Years Eve (December 2015) and the place was heavily overbooked because of an error in the computer system. Even though Jenny was stressed out over this, trying to find other places to stay for dissappointed travellers showing up at her doorstep, she still managed to pay attention to us, answering all our questions and helping...

We were not able to stay at the main property after a booking.com overbooking but the owner was INCREDIBLY accommodating and made sure we had a place to stay in one of her other properties. She even had a brand new router installed for wifi and checked on us throughout. The free bike rentals and repairs were super awesome. We... More

I dont recommend staying here for a few reasons. 1. Its in Sigon which is not Bocas town and its stinky, i could literally smell sewage. I didnt feel safe in this neighborhood either. 2. Its not a cabana. We stayed in the private "apartments" made for 2-3 people. They were glorified motel rooms. 3. They told us the wifi... More

I had the please of staying in two of the cabanas here, one with kitchenette and private bathroom, and one with a shared bathroom. Both offered a lovely jungle porch and quaint place to sleep. I absolutely loved staying here and the hospitality is top notch. Not to mention that bicycles are included to rally around Isla Colon. I can't... More

Jenny's bungalows were very cute and charming. There were free bike rentals, and the first day we took the bikes out, my chain fell off the bike. We called Jenny and she called and paid for a taxi to come pick us up. You feel like you are in a secluded area in the middle of the rainforest although you... More

We stayed at John's place - Vista mar. and as the name promised, we were situated directly on the sae, falling a sleep to the sound of the waves. Really, really nice and laidback staff. Had an amazing time and would definitively go back. Great area to stay at Isla Colon if you want to keep a little distance from... More
