We had dinner here. The Whole Fish was quite good and fresh. The Filet of the Fish of the day was definitely not fresh, it came out of the fridge I guess. Best thing was the ice cold beer that night.

We found ourselves on Bocas del Toros island during a tropical storm and took refuge at this hotel for cocktails!! Great ocean view, cheap cocktails and a lovely waiter who is always smiling!!

The restaurant at this hotel was recommended by a couple of Argentine guys I met on a day-trip to some of the neighboring islands. They recommended the great deals on lobster here. However, I found the lobster to be mediocre compared to lobster I've had in Cuba. For $20 to $30 perhaps I shouldn't complain. But ...... on the plus... More

Hej folks! We went here for the first time expecting a lot. But then... All our expectations were exceeded by far. The Hotel bocas del toro / the bar wouldn't be that cosy and breathtaking without its bar tender RUDI IGLESIAS!!!! Go there. ITS A MUST. Meet him and be introduced to everybody around. It's a gorgeous spot. Their traditional... More

I stayed in Bocas for two months about five years ago and remember disliking this place. I'm back for another month and decided to give it a try. Gross. My "cesear" salad was brown lettuce covered in a mix of mayonaise and sour cream with no flavor and soggy bread. No cheese, salt, pepper, spices, nada. I don't usually mention... More
