We hit this hotel by accident going to see Boca Chica (really tiny town that you have to see for 10 minutes, if only for the chickens, pigs, and dogs roaming all over the streets). Along the road to town we saw lots of signs for the Bocas del Mar hotel so we stopped in for lunch. This place looks like it should be one of the $350 a night secluded hotels in Cabo for movie stars to visit. Very remote but that only enhances the views. Rooms were big, new, and covered off everything you'd need for a great stay. The staff is fantastic. Very attentive, friendly, and well trained. They all act like you're in a high end European resort run by pros rather than in Panama. We travel a lot all over the world. I couldn't give this place higher marks. It's that good. Plus, whoever cooks is an excellent chef. Every meal we had (there were 4 of us) was superb in taste, presentation, and size. I gave this a 5 for location even though it was in the middle of nowhere. But that 'nowhere' was stunning. You are definitely off grid. As an aside, we went for drinks to the Seagull hotel just up the road from this hotel to check it out. We even looked at their rooms. The comparison was instant. Bocas del Mar blew the Seagull away and their pricing was the same. To Neal and Horst.... make sure those signs keep blanketing the road. I would have been so bummed to have missed staying at your hotel had it not been for those road signs. You guys have a terrific place. Truly.
