One of the best places I've stayed in a long time! Rudi the bartender took great care of us!! The restaurant had great food, the drinks were ice cold, and the rooms were beautiful. This is one of the best locations in town. I would recommend Hotel Bocas to anyone!

We enjoyed the staff and especially our interaction with Carla the owner, who took time to ask about our plans and provide very useful suggestions on where to go and what to do. But more important...

This hotel is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. I had a view over the water which was brilliant and the room was very clean with a great shower. The staff were very friendly and we had dinner at the hotel and the food and cocktails were delicious. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

I had a wonderful stay at the hotel. Right on the sea the rooms are gorgeous and we were so fortunate to be given a room that had a fantastic balcony and view out over the bay. We had a wonderful dinner in the restaurant as the sea lapped about our feet - with some of the best drinks I've... More

The hotel is very well managed with friendly and helpful staff speaking English. We had a lovely clean room in a nautical theme. It included a porch to enjoy the city view from our 3rd floor room. The breakfast was substantial with a continental choice for full breakfast. Only problem was the street noise of dogs barking, people yelling at... More

The name Bocas del Toro conjures up some special expectations that the town is challenged to fulfill. The town / island needs a lot of updating in all areas to get into the twenty first century. Having made that observation the Bocas del Toro Hotel provides a friendly, clean and comfortable base for your stay right in the middle of... More

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

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.
