I love this boutique hotel. The room was clean and perfectly appointed. The staff was so nice even though I spoke no Spanish. The bartender, Rudy, was the same one that waited on us the last time we were there. Every night he would remember what we were drinking and handed us a very cold beer as soon as we... More

I can here for happy hour (and am staying in another hotel on this street). I had the strongest margarita I've ever gotten for $3.50, and all their other cocktails were half off too. 2:30-7pm the day I came. Perfect for an after beach or before dinner stop.

Visited with my family - not as nice as it looked in the pictures The staff was OK (except the bartender lady that was drunk). The food was awful - the fruits were wilted or rotten which is ironic that you could get better looking banana / pineapple/watermelon in Ohio, US than in Bocas when they grow the stuff here....

Wold, Manager at Hotel Bocas del Toro, responded to this review

Unfortunately we believe this review has been misplaced. Hotel Bocas del Toro does not have a female bartender, only a male bartender for 3 years. We serve only fresh fruit received daily and NEVER serve bananas. Our breakfast menu is served fresh by our kitchen staff every morning. It is important to know, Hotel Bocas del Toro supports sustainable tourism... More

The hotel is located in the center of town of Isla Colon, so you are close to every place. The rooms are nice and comfortable and the staff from the hotel very friendly. Soaps and shampoo they provide are natural and really nice. You can easily find different tour options very close to the hotel.

Perfect hotel for comfort & service with island feel. We could have stayed in the big resort like Hotel Tortuga but that one is just away and you need a cab.

We loved the hotel, it was beautiful with a vey accommodating and friendly staff. Perfect central location and our room had a king and 2 twin beds, perfect for family travel. The woodwork and nautical decor added a charm over a run of the mill hotel.

I had a great stay here July 26-30, 2016. Very nice quality furnishings, and very comfortable. I was traveling solo, so I was a little worried I wasn't going to meet anybody at this beautiful hotel vs. staying at a hostel-type set up. But the bar area is a great place to have a drink and meet both travelers and... More
