Bocas del Toro is a little peace of heaven on Earth. Depending on the time of the day, the water sparkles in different shades of clear, blue and green. The nature provides tranquility and the activities will get your adrenaline moving. Free Spirit Inn is a lovely and intimate B&B with warm hospitality shared by the manager, Frank. The deep...

We had a great time in the Free Spirit Inn. It is very easy to get there, only five minuits by boat from bocas and a short way by foot. The rooms are big and there is a beautiful garden. From the balcony you can have a nice view on the ocean and it is a perfect place to relax...

We had three amazing days in this beautiful accommodation. There was nothing to complain about. Calvin helped us with everything and was very nice to us. The rooms were clean and he really cared about everything. We wanna thank him for the (too short) time we had on this island. We definitely wanna come back some time! Thank you!

We (3 women) stayed for four nights at Free Spirit Inn. Being on Bastimentos was a great respite from the density and energy of Bocas Town. Calvin was a very attentive and available host. He connected us to three different tours of the area during our stay, all based on our requests. Each tour was offered by a local guide,...

We stayed with Calvin in March 2014 & had a great time exploring the Bocas del Toro Archipelago from Bastimentos Island over three nights. Calvin is attentive and tries his best to give you deets on the island, where to eat, explore and even has a friend that offers snorkeling & bat cave tours. The Free Spirit Inn is a...

We enjoyed staying in Calvin's place a lot. We slept in the garden hut. Calvin was very helpful and the breakfast was outstanding. Due to the fact that he also traveled a lot we had quite some stories to exchange. The place is far enough from town and also not too far away. It's just a short walk down the...

At less than 5 mins walk from the dock, excellent room and nice view of the bay. Calvin make me feel immediately at home and was really helpful with any kind of recommendation. Despite of a water shortage on the island he manage to have running water and hot shower. I'll be back!

I'm completely confused about the high rating of this place. This is really basic accommodation and for $65 a night I guess you don't get much! Firstly it's fair to say that we were there over carnival and pretty much every hotel was booked out so we did not really have a choice but to stay here. Location wise it...

I'm so sorry that you waited until the end of your stay to voice your concerns. Its disappointing that your concerns were aired on a public profile since I am available at all times at address guests needs and would have discussed each of these issues immediately (not after the fact). I make it known that this is an accommodation...
