From check-in to check-out, everything here was perfect. The building itself is relatively new but has been built in a style sympathetic with its surroundings. It is located in the centre of the laid-back and cheerful Bocas town and is also only three minutes away from the airport - but you wouldn't know it. The staff - all of them...

This place is more "glamorous" than we usually stay when we are doing a beachy vacation. But I didn't regret it for a second! Loved the terrace facing the water. Great for wine at the end or anytime of the day. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great locations for being in Bocas Town. There is also a full size kitchen!

Planned a last minute trip to Bocas Del Toro, since we were staying in Puerto Viejo for the week, after recommendations from people that we need to visit there while in the area. So glad we did! The hotel is in a great location, on the water, and about 5 minutes walk from where the boat dropped us off at...

I would give this hotel 5/5 but the only fault was the showers. The cleanliness and quality of the rooms, the outstanding service, definitely worth every penny. The shower (in our room at least) varied in pressure and temperature and was never quite right. Still recommend. If I could have given it a 4.5/5 I would have.

Staid here for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. Room is large with a kitchen and nice and clean. Bed was comfy. Took one star off for lack of services in the hotel. It is basically just rooms and a dock at the back with a small bar that seems to just offer coffee in the morning, not any kind...

Hello Sean, Many thanks for the great review. We are glad that you enjoyed the spaciousness and comfort of your room. As there are many great restaurants and bars nearby, not having these services on site maintains a quieter ambiance for our guests.

This little hotel is in a great location, close to everything, but nice a quiet when you're ready for sleep. The rooms are comfy, clean, and have everything you need if you want to make yourself some meals. The staff are extremely helpful with calling water taxis, giving advice in things to do, and suggesting places to eat or companies...

We stayed here for one night and the hotel was quite nice with a very comfy bed. However, we booked an ocean view with a balcony and were placed on the ground floor beside the dock and the bar. A bit expensive we thought but well placed and friendly staff. Very clean.

When visiting Bocas one has to understand that you won't find any Marriotts or Westins or Intercontinentals. It just wouldn't be the same vibe if they were here, so that's a good thing.

We spent 4 nights at this hotel in the 2 bedroom penthouse. It is likely the nicest hotel in town but only a 3 star in North America. Most of the town is hostels so this looks like a palace in comparison. Penthouse is nicely decorated but only access is by elevator. They give you a cell phone to call...

This was the perfect end to our trip (we spent 7 days in Costa Rica prior to arriving). The room was very clean with comfortable beds. I didn't encounter the unfriendly staff like other reviewers. The staff actually went above and beyond to help us find restaurants, book trips, order ice from the grocery store when it was out, etc....
