Hotel's Favorite
This was my first visit to Bocas, Isla Colon! Hotel Bocas del Toro felt warm and inviting from the minute I stepped into the lobby. The service by the staff at the reception was with a smile. The owner Carla was always present to guide or answer any questions that needed clarification. The first stay I met up with friends and we were four in a room, and felt enough space and privacy in the large room with four beds. The rooms were very clean, and they even had ear plugs in the rooms. Keep in mind Bocas is a town with all age groups, partying and talking loud after a few drinks. Yet I loved the location of the hotel. I returned after four days in the jungle and stayed another four nights. The hotel is central, with boat taxis, scuba diving, and coffee and vegan restaurants all a few minutes of walk. In conclusion I will say that the location decor, setup, cleanliness, and safety of this hotel is a five star for me.

Good location in the heart of Bocas. The bed was comfy, the shower was great, the room was pretty, good breakfast, and the staff were gentle, kind, and helpful. Even though Bocas can get noisy at night, our room was quiet.

Great location, steps away from the docks and right in the heart of the city. If you are a clubber, this is the place to lodge into. Great staff, comfortable bed, good wifi (although not so good in the restaurant terrace). Right across the street from a noisy night club (also, a noisy street during the night). The hotel freely offers sleeping earbuds (already available in the bathroom, near the towels). It might be challenging if you are looking for a quiet place to sleep, but don't forget that Bocas Town is known for its vibrant nightlife. Turn this into your advantage: do your clubbing during the night and afterward, you are steps away from your hotel.

Dear laurentiu, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and recognize our great central location over the water, our friendly staff, comfortable rooms except for the ocean deck wifi connection. We are installing a commercial router which will extend the wifi stream. The crown jewel of Bocas del Toro is Bocas Town. It becomes lively during the weekends, which was the time you visited us, and the town is vibrant along with the Casino nearby, restaurants, boutiques and bars. We hope you have an opportunity to visit us again and please let us know in advance so we may recommend a room more appropriate for your preferences. Until then, wishing you many wonderful adventures ahead in 2020!
