We booked this hotel via bookings. Where i booked a suite with two bedrooms 5 beds and 1bath, considering we were only going to be there for a weekend. We get there to a tiny 1bedroom 1 bed. I explained to the Guy and Girl at front desk what I was sold on bookings. He then informs we they have... More

We went here two times for food and drinks within 3 days. The prices changed extremely. They had a big surfboard with prices behind the bar. We paid the prices that the surfboard said the first day, but two days later we came back to give it another shot the prices on the surfboard "were wrong" they said and everything... More

Unfortunately not the best stay here which was a shame as it could be great. Room was large and reasonably comfortable but not sure it's worth the price tag being a little away from main street. Decks are nice to chill out. Breakfast was good. Problems arise with pricing both with tours and accommodation. The price of my tour was... More

We wanted to have a good first night at Bocas, so we paid 50$ for a hotel that was in a level of a hostel. The room furniture looks old, bed was a bit broken, 15 years old tv, didnt even try to watch something and the shower was too hot or too cold. Breakfest was awesome and there is... More

Off season so gal friend and I paid $40 (negotiated at front desk) for private room w/bath (hot shower) and a towel each, room w/2 beds (comfy), TV in room, aircon, and breakfast as shown in pix on website. Don't expect the Ritz. If you're backpacking you know what to expect. (I always bring my sleepwalk and t-shirt to cover... More

One of the best places I stayed in my 4 months trip. The breakfast is delicious. The location is right on the water with a beautiful deck and great sunsets. The owner is great and helpful Best value for money in Bocas, If I ever come to Bocas I would definitely return here.

My only site of the hotel was walking through it on the way to the back restaurant and it was nice. I even mentioned to my wife that "this is how a hotel should look" with fresh paint, stained woodwork on floor and ceiling. Very nice. As mentioned, We only had dinner here, but the food was very good, fair... More

This hotel oozes charm as you approach it from a speed boat as we did. The outside deck area is lovely and a great place to watch life go past on the ocean. The room looked nice when I first walked in but I quickly realised it wasn't that clean (small bits of rubbish on the wooden floor). No bedside... More

1: Way to expensive considering the rooms were pretty shabby with very stained linnens. 2: The breakfast included was very basic with only a little fruit and orange juice from the box. not fresh or anything. Also the women working didn't wipe down the booth after people ate so it was sticky and dirty even at 12pm when I checked... More
