Las Casitas of Villa Paraiso
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 23, 2012

WE loved everything about it, can't wait to go back, just a relaxing bike ride away from excellent Creole food, fun and groceries - loved the beautiful barbecue area just outside the room for use when friends come out and use the pool too. The ocean was a few feet away - you can hear the waves and the parrots - monkeys just outside in the mature trees. Beach kept up immaculately, the rooms were scrupulously clean. The best accommodations we have ever seen.

Room Tip: Green room - jungle Blue room - ocean

I enjoyed our stay at Villa Paraiso the beach was clean and and best of all we were alone on the beach. It was the best place in Bocas. it was far better than Bluff or Red Frog they were both so far from town unlike Villa Paraiso. I would definitely stay there again.

I have visited Bocas Del Toro and Villa Paraiso several times, and during this visit had the opportunity for the first time to stay in the new Casitas of Villa Paraiso. This place is just as charming as the main Villa. Beautifully decorated rooms and perfectly laid out grounds. I enjoyed the poolside kitchen area to have fresh fruit and tea, as I watched the monkeys that were in the trees right next to the Casitas! It was so relaxing listening to the waves roll in on the beach, right in front of me! The peace and quiet of the surroundings is fantastic, and yet I can get to town so easily. I have thought about staying at Red Frog and at Bluff Beach, but they are so far out away from anything, including groceries and restaurants, and both places are so expensive to get in and out of, I am so happy that I found this great place! I hope all of you will have the chance to enjoy this little treasure in Bocas, like I did.

The casitas at villa paraiso were absolutely phenomenal. The rooms were beautifully kept, the living spaces were so open and beautiful. Every amenity was addressed. The closeness to the main city in bocas was a huge plus. A lot of the culture, cuisine, and attractions were very close or easily.accessible. yet the villa itself was just far enough away to still give you that privacy. And the beach front was phenomenal. Some beaches on Isla Colon are wrecked, but the caring attention and conservational efforts of the cutrall family (casita owners) truly give you your own personal paradise. The family itself is wonderful, very hospitable, and willing to go the extra mile. I thank them so much for all they did and hope that this review will help them, because they truly deserve it. Needless to say, I highly recommend this place and would love to visit again. If your considering visiting Bocas delToro, you should stay at the casitas at villa paraiso.

I and some friends of mine stayed for three days in the beautiful well built and maintained Las Casitas at Villa Paraiso! I can not think of a better place to spend a vacation with my friends or family! The Cottrell family knows how to run a world class renowned vacation destination, and they also know what hospitality is and they know how to personally and professionally show how great they are at it. The accommodations and grounds are a rare and beautiful find for anyone wanting to stay at tropical get away. The pool was always topazy sapphire blue and the Casitas lavishly inviting. On this tropical oasis with its own private beach with the main Villa Wiona as back drop, this place is unstoppable! Unlike anything the island of Bastimentos could offer or any other place Bocas could give. The setting of Villa Paraiso was more than what a hotel would have given us in luxury and elegance and it was just the perfect distance from Bocas town. Just far enough away to feel private but still close enough to restaurants, amazing sites and local attractions, truly the best of both worlds! The comforts felt and the times had there at Villa Paraiso were made by of the storybook paradise like beach,the over the top attention to detail and thoughtful touches accompanied by elegant tropical surroundings of which only this place could provide! Villa Paraiso is more than anyone could ask for. There simply isn't enough words to capture how amazing it is. Thanks a million to the Cottrell for providing such a find!

I stayed here with some friends and it was amazing i'd definitely come back! It was nice waking up the sound of waves and birds every morning. It was very relaxing and tranquil. It was also a lot of fun having the pool and the beach all to ourselves. I also loved the location because it was only about 2 miles outside of town just far enough to not hear the loud music. They provided us bikes for us to use, so it was an easy 5-10 minute bike ride out to town. It's also much nicer staying on the main island of Bocas rather than Bastimentos or one of the other islands. This way it's closer (only a 5-10 minute bike ride) and you don't have to pay for a boat ride.

My wife and I went to Bocas Del Toro and decided to stay at Villia Paraiso. We could not have made a better choice. The accommodations great and the location was beautiful and private. Literally steps from the beach or private pool. While there is no restaurant on site, there are local chefs that will prepare meals and deliver them to you. Taxi's to the main street are plentiful at $1.50 per person so there is no need for a vehicle. Whatever you want to do, the hosts have outlined in a book in the room or they are always available by phone. We will remember this stay as one of the best get-a ways we have ever experienced! And you will too!
