Bocas is terrific. I went to several great restaurants on the advice of the staff. I was pleasantly surprised at the great quality of food choices there. Beaches are beautiful. The service and staff were excellent! We will definitely go back.

A creep of our water taxi driver, (christo). Tried to come into our room, because he wanted to to violate my girlfriend. As his 2 cousins, acted as look outs from the hallway. I pushed her into the room, and LOCKED and barricaded the door. Since we were on the 1st floor, I got the the security guards attention from...

This review is simply not true, the police were in fact called by the hotel, the Police reviewed video footage and at our request did not press charges against this Guest. The video collaborated the story of the other guest and security, that there was a suspected drug dealer invited into the guest room and the guest was angry because...

Nice hotel, very spacious for two friends travelling together with two double beds, kitchenette, balcony and large bathroom with excellent shower. Best toilet paper and luxury bedding (after spending two weeks in Cuba). Only downside there is no ocean view rooms of you need separate beds.

Definitely one of the nicer spots in Bocas Town with a nice central location to everything here. Right on the water for easy access to a water taxi and in the middle of town where everything is walking distance. There's a market around the corner and plenty of restaurants nearby. There isn't much of a hotel staff to assist with...

This hostel is well located in town, with a lovely staff (fluent and reactive). Rooms are really confortable, the AC is just a bit noisy. They offer great breakfast options in different restaurants in town.

Rooms are very clean, large and modern; appear to be new. Large jetted tub, full kitchen, Corian counters. Walking distance to many shops, food stores, restaurants and the airport if your luggage is not too burdensome, but a taxi is cheap at $2-3. No beaches in this area, but you are right on the water and can often be picked...

This was one of three hotels we stayed at in Bocas. When we first checked in we were thrilled; we stayed in the penthouse 2BR and it was very nice for the price. We had a large balcony on the side of the building that got good sun and still had a view of the water. The balcony has a...

So a little rocky with the reservation system. They don't use computers mainly, and they have a book. I think there is a computer system in place but the staff prefer the book. Which, is wildly different depending on the staff and the day. I stayed for 4 nights and it was lovely with a few things I had to...
