This hotel is a perfect getaway from the bustling town of Bocas. I have stayed many places on the island, but since I found this hotel I will look no further in the future! There is a gorgeous, well-maintained swimming pool for those hot days. Ideal for kids, adventurists and surfers. There is a surfing break (Paunch), walking distance away. After surfing, you can chill out in the pool and have a cocktail (there is a bar right next to the pool) no other hotel offers that! The hotel is located right on the beach, so while you sleep you can hear the waves. There is a really cool bohio built on the water, so you can walk out and relax or play some of the games they have out there! The bohio has a romantic feel (made me what to be there with my partner). I stayed in a single room, but they also have VERY affordable dormitories as well (I think it was like $10-$15?). The owners of the hotel are amazing, helpful, and hilarious people, they are fun to hang out with and are very knowledgable about the island. Their son is an avid surfer, so it is definitely surfer friendly (they also rent boards). They rent bikes too so you can bike to town, or they will give you a lift when they are going to town, as well as a shuttle. It is a one-stop place to get anything you need for your adventures. They keep the hostel really nice and clean. (unlike many hostels), it is the kind of hotel that you want to hang out at, not just sleep. It is a place for laid back people, there are no super late parties (for that you can go to town!), but offers some fun pre-drinking at the bar (tequila shots anyone?). I enjoyed getting that extra rest (that you can't get at hotels in town) so I could enjoy my days on the island. Bluff beach is not too far from this place, it is gorgeous! I stayed here for about a week, and I had the most relaxing, fun time! One day here will make you want to stay forever!
