We stayed at John's place - Vista mar. and as the name promised, we were situated directly on the sae, falling a sleep to the sound of the waves. Really, really nice and laidback staff. Had an amazing time and would definitively go back. Great area to stay at Isla Colon if you want to keep a little distance from...

Rooms are not nice, big gaps in floors and walls. Just gross. I didn't sleep well b/c of bugs everywhere. I didn't mind geitkos, at least they eat the bugs. Overall, paying 100 U.S/night is a major rip-off. We enjoyed our trip up until our stay there. We couldn't wait to leave. The only nice thing I can say is...

We really enjoyed our stay here! The place has everything I wished for on a island holiday ( except the beach but you won't find this anywhere in Bocas town ) , Clean, great Caribbean and holiday atmosphere , green ( lush and beautiful gardens ) , quiet, great location ( away from the busy town center but close enough...

We stayed at the Valerie Emmanuel apartments that are run by Panama's Paradise. The apartments are set back from the street and seem like the best kept secret in town! The rooms were amazing, the communal kitchen had everything we needed and the hammocks are perfect. The cleaners came every day to check if we needed anything and always had...

This place is brilliant. Feels like being at home, without being at home. The staff here are wonderful, and credit to them for what they have achieved. Loved the humming birds flying around the balcony :) the whole place has such a nice welcoming atmosphere. But you won't enjoy it if you want to party- find a place closer to...

We stayed in an apartment with kitchen and it felt like home. The equipment and the room were very clean and nice. The staff changed everyday the towels. It's so nice that u can use the bikes the whole stay! Location is good, cause it's more peaceful than in the center and it's still so short distance there:) thank u!...

Panama's Paradise is a complex of different types of rooms in Saigon, a neighborhood that's a 15 min walk from the center of Bocas. Saigon is quite; you can not hear the loud music playing all night in the center of Bocas town, but it's close enough if you want to go ($1 taxi). We stayed in the Alsibiades Apartment...

If you're coming off the plane from a high-strung place in the Northeastern United States, like I was, expect a major culture shock and then a huge, happy readjustment of your values and expectations. This is a place elegant in its efficiency and simple joys, like raindrops falling on the beautiful greenery all around you, the very hospitable cabanas, and...

We stayed here for three nights. It was quite hot in the room, because there is no AC. But we had one floor fan and one ceiling fan, so we were good. The room was small, but you have an attached livingroom and kitchen. Because it was low season, the rooms weren't fully booked. Jenny, the owner, made sure we...

If you don't care about air conditioning where most of the places don't have it anyways, then it's probably the best place ever! The owner is very helpful and she did lots of extra things without any extra costs! I really recommend it with no doubts!
