We just returned from an extraordinary stay at the Garden of Eden. It is beyond beautiful and Dave, Sue, & their family beyond caring. We have never been treated so well. We have also never eaten so well! Miguel the chef's cooking can only be explained by, as he said, "love & magic." Really, the whole place is full of...

We are glad you had such a good time. Miquel truly enjoyed taking you on the Bat Cave excursion and having you as our guest. It is a two way street having rewarding experiences of meeting guests such as you. Naturally we appreciate the kind words but we are going to continue to strive to improve the experience of the...

The garden of Eden is seamlessly run. The rooms are comfortable, clean and fresh. The view is out of this world and the humming birds hang out on our private balcony. The swimming pool is a very nice touch. Our chef is very charming and his food is gorgeous. He makes a very special muesli, using the coconuts grown on...

We spent 5 nights at the Garden of Eden. When we arrived we were greeted by Sue, Dave, Emma, Conor, Zeus, and Mavis. Right away they made us feel at home by immediately offering us lunch and a drink. We stayed in the suite in the back, which was secluded and had unbelievable views and was clean and well kept....

We truly appreciate the comments. It is so nice of you to provide recommendations to future guests.

If this was the place of original sin you'll want to come back and experience its pleasure yourself. We wanted to get away and be pampered, but this Garden of Eden did far more than that...the food is an epicurean delight, the service and sensitivity to needs more than attentive and delivered by a gracious staff. We never left the...

It was one of the best experiences we ever had! The place was breathtaking, the atmosphere was just wonderful and Sue and Dave the perfect hosts. They made our stay relaxing (everything we wanted they took care of) and the food was perfect. I am not a person to give only compliments, here I can't find one downside.

The Garden of Eden is what it says on the tin; we truly felt that we found a perfect place with lovely members of staff.

The hotel is run by a foreign English speaking nice couple. Since there are a few rooms only, it's a quiet place. If you want to stay away of the buzz of Bocas and enjoy the silence, it's the place.

Thank you for your review and kind words about the great service. We appreciate the comments about the dogs and do understand that they are not "for everyone" However, having a good set of ears, or two, on the island is always a good idea in such a remote area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small private island Bed and Breakfast located in a tropical setting of Bocas Del Toro, Panama. The resort offers a swimming pool, kayaks, snorkeling, game room with pool table, restaurant and bar. Don't go to the Caribbean to just rent a room, come here where you can rent an island. We can accommodate up to 10 adults comfortably. Sorry no guests under 18 yrs of age. Close enough to Bocas to shop yet far enough to be as private as you want to be. ... more   less
