“Wonderful and accomodating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2009

We stayed in Bocas Del Toro for 7 days, in 3 different hotels. The first was very accomodating but rather noisy. So we moved out of town to a beach resort, where the owner was rude and the price was high. The rooms themselves were dirty and uncomfortable. Then we found Bocas Paradise hotel. We came in for dinner on their lovely balcony, and had one of the best meals we have had here. We asked to see the rooms and were so surpised based on our previous experiences in Bocas that we immediately booked one for the rest of our trip. The veiw is wonderful and you are centrally located to enjoy everything that bocas has to offer. Right next door was a night club, which worried two very light sleepers, but the soud insulation was top notch, and we didn't notice a thing all night. Now on to the best part of our stay; the staff! Their reception and kitchen staff are the best in Bocas! They are friendly and always willing to go the extra distance to help you out. They booked tours for us, helped us find nice places to eat, and even helped arrange our flights home when it was time to go. Overall our stay in the Bocas Paradise Hotel is one of the best experiences we have had since I moved to panama!

I stayed here for a night as I could not get out to the island where I was due to stay because of bad weather. It rained continuously for over 24 hours. The rooms are extremely clean but nothing special. No pictures on the wall, no character. The TVs are attached 5 cms from the ceiling so your neck is at an uncomfortable angle watching the screen. I'd expect something a little more for the price. The worst thing was the miserable and rude staff. One of the women in the bar/rest told me the kitchen was closed at 9.15pm (in the rooms its advertised as being open till 10pm) although I saw a couple of people get food after she said it was closed. Also my drink was slammed down on the table. I can accept the 'manana' attitude and I dont need constant smiley people but this waitress was rude to the point of making me feel uncomfortable. There are plenty of other places to stay in Bocas Del Toro town so get more value for your money somewhere else.
