Didn't like the place. The security was really intimidating at night. The bartenders got agressive. Because I just asked my own snorkel back. Wich I left behind the bar. The kitchen was friendly and the food was good. In total not a nice place

The worst hostel I have EVER stayed at. It was just a nightmare. Dirty rooms, dirty restrooms and showers. Bedbugs included. Manager (or whatever that was) was absolutely unfriendly and disrespectful. Eventhough we were looking for a place you can party 24/7... I can't recommend it at all!

We stayed at Aqua for four nights in total and had a fantastic experience. Our stay coincided with New Years and we wouldn't have had it any other way. We stayed in a private room (very well priced) for the duration of our stay and really enjoyed the cosy and colourful room. Other bonuses consisted of a great breakfast, great...

Good fun for a night, the natural pools inside the bar are a nice touch but can be a bit dangerous for young drunk girls who don't know how to measure the behavior.. apart from that, is a place to hang out, dance like crazy and sweat all the alcohol in your veins... locals can be a bit harassing but...

Aqua Lounge is a really cool hostel built right over the water. It is fun, with amazing things to do (trampoline, swings, ocean swimming), excellent staff (everyone is friendly and super chill) and ladies night is AWESOME. great atmosphere, great food! but the downside of being built over the water... is everything is always WET. the floor, your clothes, your...

The Aqua Lounge is the best spot for backpackers looking to have a blast! Their friendly staff ensures that you are comfortable and well taken care of during your stay. Clean and comfortable dorms, excellent food, and great drink specials every day. Don't miss ladies night on Wednesday and Saturday nights!

This hostel had a great atmosphere and was a great place for meeting other travelers. I stayed in a private room with my bf and even though it is a little nosy the rooms were lovely and worth the stay. The food was great there and cheap! However what sets this place out from the rest is the trampoline they...

Was only meant to stay for 2 nights as I'd already been in Bocas for 4 nights and ended up staying for 5! Although it is a party hostel there's parties 3 nights a week and the rest are pretty tame, most people hit up a bar called Iguana on the main island after a few drinks. And the days...

Had a great stay at Aqua lounge. Good value for money, great drink prices and fun parties. The trampoline and slack line are awesome. Lots of great spots to chill out. Beds are really comfy and big, good little shelf to put your things on. The staff are so lovely. Jay jay cooks up the best food!

The place was fun to hang out in. As we were there during the Halloween/Independence day celebrations, there was a lot of party going on. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. The best thing about this place was the great food, particularly Pasta chef Dex is a magician in the kitchen. His "Dex's noodles" gave me a mouthgasm...
