“The best vacation ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We were picked up from the airport by Muhammed. Which was very friendly and took care of all our needs. Even when one us got hurt at the beach, did every thing he could to help us out. Have great instructions on how to get to the best places in isla colon and even the other island. We will definitely get a place from him again. A+ service.

The condo was really nice, and the area was very quite and safe. We didn't swim in the pool but it looked clean and well looked after. Muhammed is great host, and takes care of his place and the people staying there. We will go back for sure!

I stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment for almost a month and it was very comfortable. There is no view of the beach (it is on the ground floor and in the back of the building), but the beach is across the street so it is easily seen. The apartment is a bit more expensive than other furnished units in town, but worth it because of the cleanliness, amenities (pool, satellite tv, etc) and helpfulness of the owners. The location (on the outskirts of Bocas Town) makes it peaceful and yet being near the gas station makes it easy to get a taxi ($0.60 takes you anywhere in Bocas Town in a shared taxi).

We booked the deluxe two bedroom apartment which was fantastic. It was really spacious and although there were only two of us staying there it would easily have accommodated a family. It had all the facilities you would need in a good location, close to the gas station for any food and booze you need, and makes it easy to pick up a taxi to take you into town. There was also a daily maid service for cleaning the apartment. Mohammed was a lovely host, really helpful and thoughtful.

We loved staying there, and would really recommend it above a hotel or hostel.

Comfortable and clean. We stayed in the ground floor studio. Swimming pool. About 15mts drive to centre of town. Right next to the only gas station in town, so getting a taxi is no problem at any time, about 50cents per person for the ride but shared with other passengers. Across the main road is a nice beach, nearby is gauri gauri - highly recommended Spanish gourmet restaurant, book in advance as limited seating. Helpful owner - Mohammed

Condos were located in a quieter part of the island near a beach and less touristy restaurants. The property offered a value at the price and included a full kitchen, sitting room, nice bathroom with hot water and air conditioning. Owners were professional, friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had a great time on the island.

I tried to bring here one of my tour group, we agreed a nice price. Then I told him that these are individual persons, and can't sleep in the same bed, because first he wanted to sell us one bedroom rooms. Why I got mad is that after a week of organizing the distribution of the group finally agreeing in everything he issued a Paypal invoice (around midnight) but then early next morning before I could even wake up and pay it, he revoked!!! Then he told me that the other owner reserved one room meanwhile we negotiated so we cant have the rooms we wanted. Now that's an obvious lie, and a big lack of professionalism. I'm working in the tourism industry but never had such a bad experience with anybody. If you are unable to work with agencies/groups and keep your word, then don't even try it!
So the place might be nice, but their reservation system is a crap. Don't be surprised if your room is already taken, and definitely try to go there with a group....
