This is the best hotel in town! It's lovely in everyway. The price is reasonable, the staff is incredibly kind, friendly and efficient. We stayed in the deluxe suite which we felt was well worth the money. The room was beautiful with a fabulous view of the town and the ocean. The bed had a plastic mattress cover, which I understand for sanitary reasons, but makes for a sweaty nights sleep. Other than that the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was contemporary and I like that it had a dual flush option on the toilet. The shower was wonderful, good hot water and shower head. The mini kitchen ended up coming in very handy, as we got a terrible food poisoning and had to spend all day and night in the hotel room because we were so ill. It was nice to be able to fix a basic meal and have a large refrigerator, though I am sure you could fix a gourmet meal if you are creative in the kitchen. A little super market is near by, which was very convenient since we weren't able to go out to eat comfortably while we were sick. We happened to arrive on Bocas Founders Day celebration, which was really exciting for the first 6 hours. Many, many schools and their marching bands came to march in the parade... Which they marched, beat their drums, and blasted trumpets, and more, from 9am clear through to mid night. The hotel area happened to be right across from the Ferry Port, which happened to be a hang out spot for the little musicians and the noise got pretty old, but we got over it. We tried to drink our way through it, but that didn't work so we took a boat taxi to Bibis on the Beach and had a lovely quiet couple of hours with great food and drinks. The celebration was fun to see mostly and the noise is nothing the hotel could help. Breakfast at the hotel was good and simple. I loved that the staff would coordinate their shirts with the table clothes everyday, darling little addition.
