When we arrived in Bocas via water taxi, we were surrounded by guys trying to steer us to one hotel, boat tour, etc. or another. One of them led us to Hotel Olas. The rooms were $40, with upstairs options available but the desk clerk wasn't helpful at all when she finally decided to wait on us. The rooms weren't ready at noon, and she couldn't tell us when they would be. We wanted two rooms so she handed us one key but said we couldn't go in yet. Total disconnect.
I showed her my tourist pensionado/jubilado card which entitles me UNDER LAW to a 50% discount M-TH, and 30% discount F-Sun. She refused to honor the law. She was aware of it but refused.
Breakfast is included in the room rate but was not worth the $15 difference between their rates and Hotel Dos Palmas two doors down. There we had AC, cable TV, hot water showers, very clean rooms and a nice patio over the water for $25. Much better deal, and the lady running the place was very very nice, even running off the "guides" that were steering us to Hotel Olas.More
