The price was to high for this place. Nothing worked in the room (hot water, television, etc), I asked for a room change and the owner after yelled at us because my husbend is argentinean (justify himself saying he had before others bad guests from Argentina, for me he was just drunk and had a bad temper), he moved us...

My stay at the La Estrella de Boca was a nightmare. I wasn't expecting a Castle but I think there are some minimal and basic cleanness standards that needs to be followed. The sheets were not clean and the room has an awful smell. We left after one night even if they didn't want to reimburse the remaining nights. By...

I don't know what happened to the other reviewers who booked online. We arrived at Bocas without any reservation and fortunately, we found a room at this hotel for $45 per night. The guy at the reception was very nice and helpful. The room was clean but not outstanding. We knew that Bocas del Toro is a town with a...

... not even "just OK"! Definetly NOT worth the money at all! It looks quite nice from the website, but it is not nice at all. There is no service, it is not clean, the rooms - especially the sheets - were not even clean upon arrival, the maintenance is bad and it is simply falling apart! The front desk...

I stayed ther efor almost a week on February 2004. Good location, not too clean and very noisy AC, but everything else was full. OK for the price.

This was booked on their web site. Upon inspection, the apartment was in a different building, it had no working hot water, the promised kitchenette had a little fridge turned into a minibar, one burner that didn't work and no utensiles. We demanded a refund on the 500 dollar deposit and desk representative agreed we could stay three days to...

First things first, Bocas is a fantastic place but our hotel was a disaster. At first It seemed pretty nice, the location was great but a little too turisty. It is a little more expensive than most accommodations in the island but at the time it was all that was available. It was right acros the street from the police...
