I stayed at Hotelito Del Mar for 5 nights in June of 2013. Being a first time visitor to Bocas I decided to send the hotel an email for a tip on logistics in regards to how far the property was from the local airport in Bocas.
The reply to my email was very quick and perfectly written by Sally the owner. I never walked more than 10 minutes by staying at this hotel and was not interested in the "Hostel" experience. A/C worked well, shower worked well, and there were hand towels included and two bath towels.
Being a first time visitor I had many questions for use of the water taxi's, restaurants, tours, etc. Sally always had a great suggestion and has lived there for years.
I would recommend renting a bike next door ($5 a day) to see the town by bike for the fun of it.
Also check out Red Frog Beach ($7 water tax ride from JamTam across the street). Also eat a yummy breakfast at Lili's also across the street. This hotel is just one block off the main drag and just far enough away from any loud night club music (the bars stay open until 5am- yikes).
$55 a night was right in my price range budget wise so this property did me right. Cheers.
