Don't get me wrong: The little hotel is quite nice, with large rooms where you can sleep to the sounds of the waves splashing below and around you (no mosquito nets, though, which can be annoying with all the nosee-ums around). Very friendly landlady, and hammocks to relax in. For night life and shopping you have to take a water...

This is a very nice place to stay. Joan is so nice and accommodating. The rooms are spacious and she serves breakfast at a reasonable price. The music from Bocas town can hardly be heard yet it is so close by water taxi if you want some tight life.

We chose Casa Acuario for our elopement and honeymoon. Our stay there was absolutely fabulous! It was quite honestly the one place in all of bocas where we felt certain that we got exactly what we ordered up, when it came to our rooms and expectations. After speaking with many other travelers we met in Bocas Del Toro, it appeared...

We spent a week at Casa Acuario in an upstairs unit. The view was awesome and I logged a lot of hammock time. Joan and her staff were always attentive and helpful. This was one of the few places over the water where you could always get in and swim-very clean water. Noise from Bocas was not an issue. The...

This is a 4 room hotel built over the water on Carenero Island. Rooms are large and lovely and the deck with hammock has beautiful views. Elia is a wonderful hostess, she went out of her way several times when a tour cancelled, etc, by finding us alternatives. There is a general eating area with a stocked refrigerator of soda...

Nice place to stay on Caraneros. A very small island with limited options for food or swimming, though an easy taxi ($1/person) to Bocas town. The included breakfast is toast and jam. Would not stay on this island as a single female traveler. There are safety concerns and prior incidents.

Our room at Casa Acuario was absolutely lovely, the location beautiful, the building well kept. The staff was distant but always attentive. We had no problems with the hotel, we had a problem with the disco across the water in Bocas blasting music until 2 or 3 AM. We shut ourselves up in the room with the AC on high...

I can't say enough about this place. First off - Joan was amazing with correspondence prior to mine and my boyfriend's arrival. She answered all of our questions, and offered me a good rate for staying more than two nights. There was never even an hour delay between her response to my emails. We don't have a lot of money,...
