We only wanted to avoid staying in Almirante while we waited for the car ferry. The owner was exceptionally hospitable. Tips: 1) If you're traveling by car from Almirante, as you come up the hill, you will see what looks like a residential development behind a gated entry for "AES". This is the way in. Once there, stay right until... More

This is not a five star resort: it is comfortable, clean and has spectacular views of the ocean and the islands. But it has what most 5 star resorts do not have - an owner who is personally dedicated to making sure you have the best experience possible while visiting Bocas del Toro. Señor Romero takes hotel ownership seriously, arranging... More

After stopping by Bocas Ridge to have a drink and enjoy the view we stayed!!!! It's a 5 star hotel in a very rough area. Almirante is basically a parking spot for people going to Bocas del Toro. We arrived too late to take the taxi to the islands so we had to stay the night. Bocas Ridge staff could... More

Bocas Ridge is located about 15 minute driving from Almirante, so it is a good place to stay if you are driving to Bocas. It is too far off if you don't have a car. I got a second floor room which had amazing views of the Pacific. You could see some of the islands and Almirante all lit up... More

This hotel is located on a ridge overlooking the port town of Alimantes which is not that attractive but probably typical of ports in most of the world. The Bocas Ridge Hotel is very nice with a wonderful view, nice resteraunt, and small but clean and suitable rooms. The secret of this wonderful place is the owner, Papi Romero! He... More

This hotel is located 15 minutes drive away from Almirantes, up on the hill. It has a lovely view on the bay. the rooms are spacious, clean and confortable. We had a lovely stay at this place. The food at the Toucan club restaurant is delicious and has a large menu.

This is a peaceful setting up in the mountains of Almirante. Vey safe and secure. The staff are incredible and the owner has become a friend. Just a great time with great people. The food is very good and has a true home cooked feeling to it.

Bocas Ridge Hotel and Residences is a nice place but it is quite a ways from everything in the area. It is perched literally on a ridge that is a long uphill ride to get to from any of the surrounding towns. The facilities are either one or two bedroom condos. The condos have a bathroom, a living/dining room and... More
