Saigon Bay Bed & Breakfast is a cozy four room over-the-sea bed and breakfast located in Bocas del Toro. If you are looking for a place away from the buzz, but only a few minutes walking distance to the center of Bocas Town, this Bed & Breakfast is the perfect choice for you. All the rooms are equipped with comfortable beds, fast wifi (500MB fiber optic), large showers and private bathrooms. Almost all rooms have air conditioning except our oceanfront room but that has large windows opening up to the sea with a cool breeze. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves at night, enjoy stunning sunsets each evening on the deck with a glass of wine, or go out and explore Saigon Bay and the surrounding areas on the provided bikes and kayaks. Your attentive hosts will take great care of you and will make you feel right at home!

What can you say about owners of a BnB that make you feel like family. Angie and Chapo were so friendly and accommodating. They were available 24/7 while I was there for three weeks. Not only was the price good without all the extras, but with a freshly made delicious breakfast every morning, use of a bicycle assigned to you for your entire stay and use of a kayak ... wow, you can't beat it. And the view was amazing. I know I will be going back to Bocas and without hesitation I will once again stay at Saigon Bay Bed & Breakfast. Thanks Angie and Chapo for everything.

Together with my boyfriend we stayed for 4 nights at Saigon Bay B&B and we both didn’t want to leave. The accommodation is located above the water with view over a beautiful bay and stunning sun sets. The house itself is very cozy and so are the rooms. We stayed in the smallest room but had everything we needed. A comfy bed, shower, toilet. Everything is clean and well maintained. Drinking water is provided for free. Also the hosts offer bikes, Kajaks and laundry service for free.
Angie and her husband provide hospitality which comes from the heart. Every morning a big breakfast is provided. Fruits, omelettes, coconut bread, granola bowls and other stuff. Everything fresh. Everything local. Both hosts are local and help to arrange tours and taxis and can give plenty of recommendations.
On top of all of that they also have pets. Cats and an incredible cute pit pull lady called Rumba. We recommend to take some treats for all of them.
If we should find our way back to Bocas, we know for sure where we’ll be staying!

The Good:
* Breakfast - tasty and loads! Choice of eggs, French toast, pancakes all with fruit and coffee.
* Free bikes
* Free kayaks (we didn’t get to use them because of the weather but they were in better condition than anywhere else we’ve seen)
* Rumba the friendly dog!
* Lovely view over the ocean from the decking.
* Super comfy bed
* Clean room
* Helpful owners
* Quiet location away from the main town
* Close to nice restaurants (recommend Toms) and boats to other islands
* Well equipped kitchen
* Good WiFi if that matters to you.
* Somewhere to dry clothes after a day at the beach!
* Really good value

The not so good:
*Shower was cold, but maybe having an off couple of days.

We stayed during really bad weather but the B&B was cosy and warm. Would definitely return and recommend - great value compared to everything along the Caribbean coast.

Thank you for your detailed review. We were very happy to host you guys while staying in our small bed and breakfast. I am so sorry to hear the shower was cold. We had no idea before and when you checked out we realized this and fixed the issue. Once again our apologies for the hot water not working and we hope that you come back to Bocas and choose to stay with us.

Room and entire property very clean! I could choose different breakfast from a menu and delicious breakfast was prepared for me. Very family atmosphere, you can always ask the owners for advice and tips for trips. The cats and the dog Rumba also make everything even more cosy. The animals are calm and reserved, I was not disturbed by the animals at all! This place will definitely be on my list again for my next visit to Panama!!

Great experience!! Very cute B&B over the water, hosted by Angie who was super fun and awesome host who by the way makes delicious breakfasts (variety and loads), she also took to a morning paddle and a sunset paddle which was the highlight of my trip. There is a common area with books and board games, all the place was clean and neat. Nice specious room (a/c), confortable bed and a really cool bathroom (hot water). There are bikes and kayaks at the b&b available for their guests. I really enjoyed staying here. Fully recommended...Thank you!

Me and my boyfriend stayed for 4 nights at Angie and Nicolas house. They were very friendly, helped us around with all the questions we had (Angie even picked for us our luggages from the airport). They cook excellent breakfasts, the house is clean. At night you can fell asleep with the waves of the ocean and the whole place has a cozy atmosphere, as well as great sunsets.
We felt really good in there and definitely we would stay again with them if we ever have the chance to turn back to Boca del Toro.

I stayed at Saigon Bay B&B for a week and it was amazing. It’s small so it feels very cozy and nice. Angie and Nicolas are great hosts and they make the most amazing breakfasts. Their place also has a nice terrace with amazing views and you can go swimming there too. My favourite part is that they have a hole in the terrace that has a light, so you can see all the amazing life happening there (starfish, stingrays, all kinds of fish, etc).
They also offer laundry service which is very convenient.
Thanks for a great experience!

Amazing place, fantastic people, lovely breakfast, outstanding service and a wonderful location.

Not to mention the unreal sunset view and the unbelievably cute pets (Rumba in particular).

The hosts made this feel more like a home than I thought was possible in the other end of the world, so I am extremely grateful.

Overall, our stay was perfect and the hosts are incredible people, so I will look back at this experience with a very warm heart and remind myself how beautiful everything was.

I highly recommend visiting this place.
