The hotel is situated in 1 minute (and 1$) on boat taxi from Bocas town, on Isla Carenero that is more quiet than Isla Colon, but still close to civilization. The island is very beautiful, with some nice small beaches few minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel is very nice, comfortable, small and quiet, with only 6 "rooms". The...

This hotel is located on Carenero Island, so it will cost you dollar per person per ride to Bocas. It is not necessary to ride to Bocas, plan your visit before hand. Island offers couple of restaurants and super market. We arrived here and staff welcomed us warmly. When we checked-in, additional credit card fee was charged, which is ok,...

Nice place to stay. The cabanas or whatever you like to call them are right on the water. They are clean and air conditioned. The hotel staff are nice and take care of any issues promptly. I had a few issues that were minor and fixed expediently. There is a lot of water taxis that pass by all day and...

We spent two nights in Cabin #2, and the hotel location and room/cabin is beautiful but I cannot give it an "excellent review" due to the negative customer service experience. Our shower was badly clogged, we mentioned this right away to staff who informed management. However, nothing was done to fix the problem and the shower remained clogged. We mentioned...

We stayed one night and had a great experience. Nice clean room. Great breakfast. We would for sure stay here again. We stayed in the light house. Amazing view of the bocas. Catching a water taxi is super easy. Great food right down the beach. A very unique experience.

My wife and I spent 5 days in Cabin 5. It was everything advertised and we had a great time. The cabin was perfectly clean and well appointed and had a small refrigerator, which judging from earlier reviews is a new amenity. Breakfast (eggs, pancakes, omelets, yogurt, fruit, etc.) was perfectly fine and certainly everything you need. Service was also...

Cute little cabins right on the water. Contrary to other reviews, I didn't find that you could snorkel right from your door. Water was only about waist deep and nothing to see. Nice view though. Bad sand fleas that bite! Once they start, we were driven indoors. Easy water taxi ride - about two minutes. LOTS of noise from the...

It's been a bucketlist item of mine to stay in an overwater bungalow, but they are usually sooooo expensive! This was a great option to fulfill that dream, without breaking the bank! Rooms are clean and comfortable, views are gorgeous, and it's convenient to get to Bocas town ($1 water taxi, can be hailed from end of hotel dock) careful...
