“Clean, free wi-fi, safe box and helpful attendant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

I love the location of this hotel (Avenida Norte and Calle 1). It is 5 minutes walk to the center. You will barely hear noise from all the bars and clubs playing loud music in the center area. The beds are small and the blankets are very cheap, but it's one of the cheapest places I found. The reception guy was very nice and helpful. The room has A/C, a fridge and a safe!! The shower is weird to operate, so make sure you ask the attendant while he shows you the room. The hotel has a nice pool and a private dock in case your boat tours provide transportation to hotels. Beware this is not a hotel for princesses or queens, it is very basic.

My wife and I visited Bocas Del Toro for the first time this May for three nights. Hotel La Terrazza was absolutely perfect for us in comfort and value. The grounds are impeccably lanscaped with palm trees, a man made golden sand beach and a large deep swimming pool made of coral. There is also a dock with lounge chairs directly on the ocean. The room was a good size with everything we needed including air conditioning, fridge, comfortable beds, window, private bath and tv. The manager is very nice and maintains the gardens himself.

We had originally booked a very cheap room at Panama's Paradise Saigoncito but found it to be far from paradise and left after the first night. Searching Bocas Town for a comfortable but reasonably priced room was tricky. It's a bit of a tourist trap with many hostels and dirty, shabby hotel rooms. If you want any level of comfort most nicer hotels there charge over $100 and don't have any landscaping or gardens.

We got a great deal at La Terrazza in low season. No breakfast but great service and amenities. This is the only hotel in Bocas Town with a pool! It's very hot in Bocas so this was extremely refreshing. The location is on the water, central, walking distance to everything but not within earshot of the noisy bars and partying crowd.

La Terrazza is your best choice in Bocas Town. A tranquil oasis! Should be highly rated under Hotels.

Room Tip: The Standard Double room, with 2 single beds, is more than adequate in size and amenities. Larger r...
