This is a simple hotel. The price is good and you get what you pay for but overall the value for the money is good. The bed is ok. There is air conditioning and it is clean. We have a bedroom and an extra living room. The big space is very nice. The hotel is quiet. I read on the... More

We stayed 2 days at Posada Isla Chica. We really enjoyed our time. The room is huge, it is more like a little apartment, like you have a living room with a single bed, fridge, TV and a sink. And an extra sleeping room with a double bed, AC and fan and the bathroom with hot water. It was really... More

On street following shore of coast in town., so close to all amenities.- boats to Carenero just up the street and plenty of bars and restaurants close at hand. Friendly welcome from reception staff. Room a little tired and could really do with a makeover but not bad value for €50

The room is ok but the kitchen is not sonfresh and the kitchenware are used very much. Although located in the center of Bocas town the noise is generally not a problem. Consider the quite long distance to the beach and the high price.

Great location but when the manager showed us the "kitchen" in our room -- it was a dirty sink with exposed pipes and a little frig. She said there is a "fully furnished communal kitchen" so we were ok with that. Until we wanted to make some great Panamanian coffee that we bought -- oh sorry - there is no... More

Dear Linda's husband; As I said to you when you were at the hotel, none of our rooms comes with a kitchen. You wanted to tell me that you had booked a room with a kitchen and I told you it was absolutely impossible as we never had any room with a kitchen. You booked through Expedia and I actually...

Perfect location in the very center on Bocas town, minutes away from everything including the port, the bus and restaurants (nothing else really in Bocas). Spacious, clean, functioning AC, fridge and almost warm shower was all we needed. Our balcony was facing the main street (and police station) and surprisingly it was quiet even on a Friday night.

We got a room here after two nights in a big mixed dorm in a different hostel. We were given the private room on the second floor (room 9) and it felt like a luxury resort after where we'd been. There was a small kitchen (fridge and sink only), AC, a tv, towels provided, and they offer a laundry service... More

Loved this hotel in Bocas! Right near the ferry (and police station, although it's a safe area!) Clean rooms, friendly staff and delicious breakfast downstairs. Very chill vibe and close to a lot of restaurants and bars. Highly recommend staying here and would stay again!
