We came here every morning to take our amazing breakfast. The view is so nice and the place directly on the docks. The prices are cheaper and the cocktails are very good too. We also love lucky the lovely dog of the place. I miss this place and Dami and Anthony. It is also possible to eco-dive at this place.

Everything is very clean, it is a very nice and cozy place. The owner is attentive and very interesting. The rooms are also nice, the food is freshly and homemade, and it has hammocks with great views! I recommend 100% this place.

Tom and Lucky looked after us so well whilst we were doing our diving course. Lovely pizza and crepes at reasonable prices. The homemade muffins and bread were amazing. Located in the centre of town by the main boat jetty.

Tio Tom, uncle Tom's place, is not just waterfront but mostly built over water. Spacious rooms, nicely equipped, comfortable bed, functional private bathroom, large shaded patio like a beer garden, boat dock and a row of hammocks. Pure relaxation. Did I mention the cuisine? Tom is an outstanding chef, always tasty meals, sometimes experimental, with fresh ingedients. Will we come back or recommend? Yes and Yes.

We came spontaneously to Tio Tom's Guesthouse and first booked for one night. We liked the place so much that we decided to stay the whole time for our visit on the islands there and rather take boats to go to other islands then. The bungalow was very cozy and clean. Ina (german owner) made us feel very welcome and helped out organising our further journey to Panama City. We would definetly recommend the place to other travellers and would also come back. Food was also very good and fair prices. Good luck to you Ina!
