We had a few good meals at the hotel restaurant. The service was a bit slow sometimes but we had a lovely view while we waited. I would say the food is good, not great, but there are no other options nearby.

I had drinks here one evening and breakfast once. Both were delicious and very well presented. The place is beautiful and the staff very friendly.

Very nice restaurant. The food was fresh and delicious, well prepared. The outdoor setting couldn't have been better with ocean and island views all around. The staff was very good.

Bocas del Mar restaurant is the quality you would expect in an upscale hotel in the city. Yet it is in the middle of some of the most idyllic tropical views you can imagine. Wow!

Having stayed the previous few nights in backpacker type places it was a real treat to arrive at this beautiful hotel with its very friendly staff, manicured gardens, pristine pools and lovely view. The rooms are very well appointed, spacious and clean. The food was excellent. Highly recommended!

Just arriving in Boca Chica, one of the best option is the Boca Del Mar Restaurant. It is a hotel as well, apparently a very nice one, but I cannot comment cause I did not stay at the hotel. The restaurant is really amazing, a very good surprise. With a beautiful view of the ocean, the bay of Boca Chica.... More
