We recently spent 3 very enjoyable nights at Koko Resort. We stayed in the Gecko cabin which had a double and single bed, nice sized bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, air-conditioning and a fantastic hammock and chairs on the deck. The decor of the cabin is a little dated and the beds could be more comfortable, but apart from that, our...

Absolutely loved our stay here! Cabin was very clean and cozy and the deck on the water was very relaxing. The owners were very friendly and made a delicious breakfast each day! I loved the location amongst the locals! Cannot wait to visit again and stay here!

Stayed in the Dolphin cabin for 1 week. It was exactly as the pictures on the website showed. We finally got to meet Jack & he is also exactly as the reviews say. Jack & Lee's breakfasts are great, different every day. It is a good time to meet everyone. Thanks Julia for always keeping my coffee cup full. Good...

I was so happy with the stay at the Koko resort, the only reason I hesitate to write a positive review is because I want it all for me! :) The hosts, Jack and Lee, are like parents. I was amazed at their hospitality. Their breakfasts are awesome, their company is great, and they were always available to help us...

Loved, loved , our home " in " the water, not "on" the water as Jack would say !! It's even more beautiful than the pictures. I was attracted to this place because of the pictures , but the reviews clinched the deal. We were very nervous travellers, but, were reassured Jack and Lee would look after us and direct...

This is our third time staying @ Koko Resort / Bahia del Sol in Bocas. There is a new member on the staff-her name is Julia. What a wonderful addition. Julia is a true "people-person" She is fun-loving and genuinely cares about the guests. She makes each guest fell like she is there just for them. The jury is still...

My family of 4, including myself had an awesome stay. We stayed in the Gecko cabin over the water. It was great! Jack set us up for surfing lessons on Christmas Eve with one of the guys he recommended. We couldn't have asked for a better guide to work with us. Thanks, Jack. The next day, Christmas day, we were...

This place has it all. Experience, location, and price. The experience was great because Lee and Jack were very helpful when it came to helping us plan our trip (daily activities, transport leaving the island, etc). Their local know-how enhanced our experience - especially when they told us that many restaurants were closed on NYE and that we should make...

We stayed at Koko's late November 2013 and it was our favorite place of the 4 places we stayed while in Panama. It was spectacularly relaxing while staying at the Starfish cabin to sit out on our porch and look out of the glassy water, blue sky and verdant jungle. The Saigon neighborhood is friendly and it was great to...

Like Jack says, if you're looking for a posh resort, this is not the place for you. But, if you want to experience the real Bocas, this is the place! Yes, there are children, barking dogs, trash (nearby, but not in the resort), and some of the nicest people living their way of life right in the mist of KoKo...
