The room has an amazing sea view, The service was very good; a very complete Bar with all sorts of cocktails; but the best of all was the Lobster I had for dinner, unforgetable experience. It is a MUST when you are in Bocas as well as Bocas Bamboo and Paki Point!

Went here during our first week in Bocas and we will not be back. After walking from restaurant to restaurant looking for some open seating near the water this was the only available place (it seems we should have taken this as a warning sign rather than a sign of luck). We ordered the stuffed chicken as well as the...

First time in my life, we were almost kicked out of a restaurant. We arrived at around 10pm, were welcome in the restaurant and we ordered a bottle of wine with 3 plates (2 of them was tuna con ginger and wasabi that was suggested in our guide and really nothing exceptional). At 11pm the waiter came to say that...

Pros: The A/C worked, good hot water and pressure, clean, huge room. Cons: a little loud with the restaurants below and motorboats, slow, nearly unusable wifi. The balcony room has a beautiful view. A rare room with a bathtub. I would probably not go here again based on price alone but the area is generally not cheap.

El Limbo is located at the center of Bocas town and the staff is really friendly and helpful with finding a good restaurant or bike rental etc. The room has air conditioning and a nice big bed but otherwise it's a bit shaggy. We had a cockroach in our room. The hotel has a terrace above the sea which is...

I didn't stay there because some of the reviews scared me off. But I did have breakfast there. Spoiled fruit, scrambled eggs with some little bacon bits mixed in, white "toast" that wasn't; it couldn't have been in the toaster for more than 10 seconds. But the worst was the coffee, barely lukewarm and full of grounds and served in...

Lots of reviews about bad service. We were with a group and a guide so maybe we got better service. But the service here is "laid back" aka slow most places. This place has a nice atmosphere and really good food. I had chicken wrapped in bacon and my husband had the fish of the day - Mahi Mahi and...
