This review is a year late... (we stayed here in Nov of 2010), but I finally decided to stop being lazy and put in my 2 cents. It was Trip Advisor after all that led me to this great place in the first place.

I'm speaking for everyone in my group when I say we LOVED the place. Its such a fantastic, chill setting. Jack and Lee are incredible hosts, and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable! Its not hard to get to the main drag, and its great to be able to get away from it when you want.

I have travelled a fair amount, and come across some great places to stay. This is one of my favourite discoveries so far! A true gem!

we had the most amazing time at KOKO resort.
The place is beautiful, on the water, and Jack and Leigh are wonderful hosts.
They provide anything you need, you feel that it is not a business for them, it is just a life style, incredible atmosphere !

I travel a lot around the world, but this place is unique and fantastic. Jack and Leigh are so friendly and give you the best local tips that you can ask for. Jack also make an amazing breakfast every day. The cabin is so nice and spacious and we did not want to leave at all. Would definitively come back and recommend it to everyone. One word to describe it: amazing. And very safe and clean also :)

in local residential area
cabins over the water are very nice
Lee and Jack are very helpful arranging excursions, getting taxi transportation, ect.
actually they are willing to do anything to make your stay more enjoyable

if you don't like staying in a neighborhood with the locals this is not the place to stay

all in all we give it a "thumbs-up"

We just came back from a weekend in Bocas del Toro, and we stayed at Koko Resort. Our experience was just wonderful! We stayed on the Island Suite, but got to know the rest of the hotel too. It is on a residential area so don't expect for it to be surrounded by other big hotels, but that is part of its charm. The main street (where all the action is) is just 15 minutes away if you walk, and less than 5 minutes if you take a cab. The place is beautiful and clean (we highly recommend watching the sunset from the dock), and the breakfast is AMAZING! The owners go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and at home. We are definitively going back!

We stayed at Koko Resort for a few days in early July. Jack, Lee and Cubby are fabulous hosts (and Jack is a great cook!). The cabins are adorable and picturesque. The bay is beautiful. The neighbors are friendly. We had a wonderful time in Bocas del Toro and would recommend Koko Resort to anyone in the area. Jack and Lee helped us schedule awesome tours/activities, helped us avoid the crazy cab drivers (153- you know who you are), and sent us to delicious restaurants- they even called to check in on us at each destination. Above and beyond. Hope to return soon! Thank you Jack & Lee

First night we stayed in BAHIA DEL SOL, there we missed the orivacy, so we changed to the dolphin House, from KOKO Resort (the owners are the same!), which was a very very good decision!

We loved staying in this fully equipped house, withe the view on the bay, the hammoc in front of the house, and alle the privacy we could get. We stayed 2 nights there and were totally relaxed! We enjoyed the delicous breakfast, which is included, and walked from here to bocas town (a 15 minute walk).

We can totally recommen staying here!

Room Tip: The house in the fron provide the best view on Saigon Bay!
