I don't understand how this resort has such positive reviews. I was excited for my stay at Popa Paradise only to be terribly disappointed. The room was filthy, the food was barely edible, and the whole place is in varying states of disrepair.

We were looking for a quiet, out of the way place and this was it! Great staff, private beach, swimming pool, excellent food and very quiet - just what we needed. Thank you Vince, Rosie and Craig for a wonderful 4 day staycation. "The Pirate"

Popa Paradise is the perfect spot if you are looking for a beautiful secluded spot to rest and relax. The owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating! The casita ocean room has an amazing view and the food is excellent!

About
Description
Popa Paradise is an Adults-Only (18+) beach hotel located on a stunning island called Isla Popa in the Bocas del Toro archipelago, off the Panamanian coast in the Caribbean Sea. We are located about 30 minutes ...More away from Bocas del Toro by boat. Stay with us for an unforgettable vacation where you can relax, snorkel in beautiful clear water and visit the amazing outer islands. Our chef creates a spectacular, tasty, unique and healthy menu and can cater to vegetarians and vegans, which is all included in our all inclusive rate. We have a large range of activities and excursions from diving, fishing, zip lines to the spectacular Zapatilla islands marine park or simply relax by our swimming pool and enjoy a Popa Paradise cocktail at our swim up bar, enjoy a massage in the spa or take a walk on one of our stunning beaches. Our new beach bar and restaurant "Rosie's" is great for cool drinks on the beach all day and at night beach BBQs, bonfires, and occasionally live music under the stars. Our dedicated team of professionals will take care of your every need and ensure you have a memorable stay at our boutique resort. We look forward to meeting you at Popa Paradise - barefoot luxury!
