My husband and I spent 3 nights here and begged for one more but they were already booked up and no wonder: the degree of service here is impeccable, and the grounds are lovely. We had the luck to score the casita right near the water and were here at a time with at most 4 other guests so we...

My husband and I recently stayed at Popa for our honeymoon. The hotel's location is a beautiful paradise about 40 mins away from Bocas town. We felt as if we were staying at an extended family member's home but with the luxuries of a big resort. Everyone knew our name, kept us well feed, and helped us book activities off...

My wife and I spent several days in Panama, and 3 days / nights at Popa Paradise. You might be suspicious of the unusual high rating for the hotel, but I can tell you that it is deserved. You are 40 minutes away from anywhere by boat, yet you still have most of the conveniences and amenities of home. Internet,...

We went to Popa Paradise in April 2014. You have to fly out of Albert Brooks airport (Domestic airport in Panama) to get there (Bocas Del Toro). It takes about 1 hour. From Bocas Del Toro, it is a 30-40 minute boat ride. Depending on the weather, it can be calm and beautiful or rainy and scary. We experienced both!...

We enjoyed our stay very much as it was like visiting friends. The hotel is in a private and secluded location, far away from the busy streets in Bocas main island. The food was very healthy and tasty. The staff was very friendly. The beach was clean and we enjoyed it as there were few other people there, so we...
