“Beautiful view and lovely service”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We stayed at Bahia Del Sol for 3 nights and loved it so much we didn't want to leave.
Rooms: We stayed in the master suite, which overlooked the water. The room was spacious and very clean. The deck was great we enjoyed lounging in the hammock in the evenings listening to the waves crashing.
Location: The house is a little out of town approx 4min cab ride which we didn't mind because it was quiet location and served for a nice walk into town.
Service: Best in town. Jack and Lee are so lovely which made the stay even better. Jacks breakfast are delicious and Lee is a sweetie and helped organise a tour with a local guide which was great.
If you are looking for a true feel of bocas and amazing service I'd recommend Bahia del sol

I had the opportunity, with two friends, of taking the Bocas del Toro Tour .
It was an exciting experience: the Caribbean sea, the delicious meals,
the people from the island, our accomodations there, and the most
important thing, the kind and personalized attention from our guide,
I strongly recommend stayin here, excellent and nice place.

I spent a fair amount of time reading about lodgings in Bocas before making my decision. I finally settled on Bahias del Sol for two reasons - the owners web site explained exactly what to expect and it was close to town, but far enough away to lend some peace and quiet. What I got was quite a bit more than I expected. The location was perfect and the owners were fabulous hosts.

I rented the master suite which has a balcony overlooking Saigon Bay. This granted me a private space to lounge and a spectacular view, especially at sunset.

Every morning Jack cooked a delicious and hearty breakfast. Strong coffee and fresh fruit included. When I wanted to go out and explore Jack and Lee set me up with the best guides. I rode in boats around all the islands, walked on beautiful deserted beaches, went fishing, climbed through caves, ate sugar cane with locals, watched dolphins gliding through beautiful blue waters.

This trip was great, but what made it even better was my choice to stay at Bahias del Sol. You will be well taken care of here.

If you're going to Isla Colon, I strongly recommend staying here -fifteen minutes from the main town and we felt 100% at home. Aside from being lovely accommodation, Jack and Leigh were the best hosts I've ever had on a holiday. If you don't have a plan/trip sorted for the day, they'll help sort one out and get you picked up from their jetty, and Jack's breakfasts (and jokes) will make sure you have all the energy you need for the day. We stayed three nights, then went across to Bastimentos and stayed somewhere we didn't like and thankfully we were able to come back to Bahia del Sol for another two nights. Jack and Leigh saved (and helped make) our holiday.

Bahia Del Sol will not disappoint! If you want to get away from the world of smartphones and instant access to outside world that this is the place for you. If you still need to be connected to the outside world then access is there at your fingers. Well worth the price to get away. If you want to snorkel, kayak, take a boat to where ever or just get the inside track to what to do they will help set up or give you onsite access to what you want. A homemade breakfast creation is an everyday morning routine with a fantastic cup of joe too! If you strive for a home away from home then look no further! A friendly staff is waiting to meet your needs.

Just returned from a two night stay at the Bahia Del Sol. Jack and Lee were wonderful and Jack's breakfasts were awesome (as others have said). We specifically chose this hotel because it was close to the Feria del Mar festival and it was great. We had a wonderful time. The hotel sits right on the water and we loved the sound of the waves at night, there is no better way to fall asleep. This hotel is around a 15 minute walk from Bocas's town center or a 5 minute taxi ride. Make sure to take the bus to Drago beach and eat at the Caribbean restaurant on the beach - amazing food. Say hello to Sophia when you go.

I was really impressed with our cabin --clean, spacious, and right on the water. The view was amazing, and Jack and Lee provided us with anything we wanted: kayaks, snorkel gear, restaurant recommendations, etc. They were also quick to help us find the best quality/value tours and made breakfast each morning. If we needed to be somewhere, they made sure a cab was waiting at the appointed time.

Bahia Del Sol is a small walk into town, which was a great thing. We could walk or take a cheap cab ride and not be disturbed by the night life when we were at the cabin. The nice thing was that Jack, Lee & staff went out of their way to accomodate us, even with extra requests (beach towel, etc). I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in a low key and extremely fun vacation destination.
