Bocas Inn has a great location; very close to all the activity in town (you can walk everywhere), but removed enough so that you aren't disturbed by all the noise. It’s right on the water with a fabulous view, constant breeze and friendly staff. Each room has its own bathroom (a significant point of note in Bocas) , the rooms... More

I stayed at Bocas Inn for 5 days, felt like I was at home. I did have the place to myself as it was "off-season," but I cannot imagine the staff providing anything but exceptional service as they catered to all my needs, including arranging expeditions, restaurant recommendations, sights to see, bicycles to rent for easy touring of the Penninsula,...

Bocas Inn is a very tranquil spot right on the water. I can lay in a hammock reading a book and enjoy the sounds of tropical birds in the trees all around me.

We stayed at Bocas Inn 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, with the excellent view from the front decks. Breakfast is served on the main floor with views of the anchored yachts, island, and morning boat traffic. The food was very good and Orlando, the cook, is a charmer with his Caribe accented English and friendly manner. Hercilia, the... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and we thoroughly enjoyed our room facing the waterfront. Our room was simple, comfortable with a lovely soft bed and a hammock outside on the balcony. The bar is excellent and breakfast is all you could wish for. However, when it rains it does rain but even that can be a spectacle.

My boyfriend and I arrived in Bocas Town not knowing how many days or nights we would stay. Our first night we stayed in a perfectly nice hotel on the main street, but found it too loud at night if you wanted a quiet night in. We wandered down the road and found this lovely escape. The rooms are simple... More

This wonderful waterfront lodge is run by Panama's Ancon Expeditions and is listed among the top 20 destinations in Mexico and Central America by Outside Magazine's Travelers edition. Unbeatable location, open air dining, sun deck, hammock balcony and great food. Our room faced the ocean and was adjacent to the balcony. I especially loved the location - within walking distance...

Stayed two nights at Bocas Inn in a waterfront room. I would recommend asking if they have an ocean facing room available as it was lovely to have a door that opened right out onto the balcony with hammocks. They have a beautiful garden/courtyard at the entrance. The room was clean and the hot water was pretty hot. It isn't... More

Very nice little hotel located just outside downtown. Very relaxing environment. Our room was basic but comfortable. We enjoyed amazing views from the balcony and from the restaurant on the first floor. We stayed at the Bocas Inn during 4 nights and we were the only guests in the hotel. We basically had the hotel for ourselves. Breakfast was great:... More
