This hotel is located in the middle of the town but not in the party/restaurant area. It's a few minutes walk down to the boats. The rooms are good and the hotel has got a pool if you don't want to walk to the beach (it's not the best beach) or take a boat out on the smaller islands where...

I was staying in swan's three nights with my wife. It was terrible! From all sides of hotel you have discos and loud music. You cannot hear yourself in the room till late night. Noisy, very noisy!!! When disco is over it's not the end. Paper walls, you can hear guests on the other side. On the first day we...

Old construction, but well conserved. Very well located in the center of the isle. We had a room for 5 persons which was clean. Quality of sleep was good. Breakfast included and was ok. Little delay on towel services but not a big issue. Interestingly, the hotel has a nice pool.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a while during our trip to Panama. The hotel is clean, secure and had very friendly staff. The breakfast was pretty good, but the restaurant was always closed. Close to all the stores and restaurants in town so the area can get noisy, but it was quiet while we were there. The hotel...

Me and my husband came to Panama for our honeymoon vacation, and looked for a good classy hotel, that we can rest in, and found out that this place is much more than we expected! We received a lovely room with very comfortable king size bed, balcony, big and clean bathroom with big shower, and 2 swans made out of...

We stayed here 3 nights. We paid $88.00 per night. The pool was really nice and cold. The rooms were okay. & big. The bed was comfortable . Good location. The breakfast was skimpy. And you hoped there would be food left when you got there to eat. The price was high in our book & the hotel needs some...

Stayed here as part of a group and think this is one of the few options in Bocas Town suitable for large groups. It's close to the main things like restaurants and boats to the mainland. The closest beach (Sandfly Beach, polluted and nothing special) is about 10-15 minutes walk. The place looks rather old but the central areas with...

Room smelled of smoke, price for breakfast changed after eating, easily heard music from nearby bar inside the room. The staff was less than helpful and the rules kept changing. There seems to be endless hotel options in bocas, I'd stay somewhere else.

Better than we expect, room is small but functional. Compare with the Caribbean suites we were before, it is much better value and half the price. I recommend it. Only one off, the mattress is as hard as marble. And the front desk does not give you advise on excursions.

“Sorry I am not sure what would help. We were on an outside room and if the pool was in shape that would be one view.”

“We stayed at room123 on the first floor; if at the time of your stay there are kids making too much noise while having fun in the pool I'd say the room exactly above it on the second floor would be a better choice, as it is a little farther up. Also rooms not near the pool are less likely to have the mold problem.”
