At least, the room I ve got, was very disappointing. All pictures looks fine, the guys at the reception are ok. We rented a room that was double with private bathrooms each and a shared kitchen in the middle called "Alcibides". The door leading to the living, had two internal locks, both broken, we couldnt lock that door, he the...

Had a screw up on our end and the staff went above and beyond to accomodate us. Great place, cool cabin. A bit off the beaten path and away from main street hustle and bustle...but still within walking distance of everything in Bocas Town.

Generaly we liked our stay here, some minor issues prevented a 5-star rating. Good: Great staff, good cooking facilities and shared chill-out area, quiet neighbourhood. Bad: "Far away" (for bocas standards) from main street, where all the shops, bars, etc. are., tiny rooms (hardly bigger than the bed it contains). Not veeeery clean (spiderwebs...)

This hostal is totally recommendable: The appartment we stayed at (Valeri Emanuel Apartments) was very spacious, clean and well equipped. A highlight is the price: It was VERY cheap for what we got. The staff is very helpful, they even send me some lost belongings to Panamá City by Air Panama, I would have been totally lost without them! We...

For a quick trip to Bocas town, then Panama's Paradise is a lovely place to stop. As it's only a 15 minute walk, or $1 cab ride from the Main Street, you're in a perfect spot to engage with all that Bocas can offer. The biggest selling point for us was the bikes that the hostel had available. Keep in...

This is a difficult place to review, many aspects of our stay here were really amazing and there is so much potential for the place. But it was let down by neglected rooms and somewhat scatty management. The rooms are big, comfortable and quiet. The location is great, away from the town enough to be quiet, but close enough to...

Our plan was to stay for 4 nights in Saigoncito but we liked it that much that we eventually stayed for 10 nights! First we stayed in room 4 and after that in room 5. Room numbers 4,5 and 6 share one balcony which is decorated so cosy! We felt at home immediately. Due to the rain we had the...

The rooms were nice, clean and, although located on the edge of the town it hardly mattered in such a small place. Jenny and the other staff were all nice and helpful and provided us with suggestions of things to do around Bocas del Toro. Also to be noted, I left my (somewhat expensive) sunglasses there by accident and didn't...

Jenny and staff are some of the most friendly and accommodating people I have ever met. There was a mix up with our booking and Jenny went wayyy out of her way to make sure we had a place to stay, with no extra charge. The property is located in a neighborhood a 5 min bike ride away from the...
