Where do you start? Upon arrival the woman who checked us in made no attempt to be helpful, and we are not even needy people! It was clear that all she wanted to do was get paid. when we got to the room the first thing we noticed was the air conditioning didn't work, and it is hot and sticky....

good day in response to his critics to call it so, I really do not know where to start. They ask criticize a hotel or another and the only things they write are stupid, the airconditioning works only need to use it properly, the same as television, if we're able to use the things I do not know what to...

The cabins are lying on a smaller island just 2 min away from bocas town with a own wharf. When we arrived to check in, the owner welcomes us with a fresh coconut This gave us a great holiday experience. We stayed 3 nights in the lighthouse. Everything was fine it a bit dated but it works A/C in bedroom...

We stayed in cabin # 5. It is the furthest one out on the water so you only have one neighbor. The inside of the cabin was tastefully decorated which made the place homey but not cluttered. It was light and airy with a modern flair. There are windows letting light in every direction lending to a bright yet cozy...

Water bungalow concept is quite nice, however boats keep shuffling every minute from very early morning till very late evening! After having spent 3 nights we had to move instead of staying a week as we planned. If you look for seclusion and silence, don't go there. We stayed in villa #3, aircon does require filter change as currently it...

Good day I wanted to thank you for your commentary, because for us it is very important to know what our customers think, wherever they are sincere. In relation to his commentary, which is not true, we have bungalow near the beach where it is impossible to hear the noise of the boats, for airconditionated and I think only a...

We had a great time in one of the small houses( nr. 3) above the water. The house was very nice and clean. A very romantic place to be! Every day clean towels and every two day new bedclothing. Even the sand we have taken in was removed from the floor during our stay. breakfast was nice and the lady's...

I would strongly advise care when booking here and especially when dealing with a person called Adriano Cermenati as we only booked with him the day before and had contact with him re travel arrangements on the day of arrival just to find out he overbooked once we arrived. When walking over the island in search for an alternative we...

We stayed our first night in the lighthouse which was very comfortable with an amazing view! Our remaining stay was in cabin 3 which was also very comfortable with a great deck overlooking the water with a commanding view of the beaches, tropical fish and nearby islands. Just a few minutes by water taxi from Bocas town, it proved to...

We were 2 couples traveling and stayed 3 nights in Rooms 4 & 5, the two homes furthest out in the water. Our experience was very unique to say the least, staying in brightly colored homes on stilts off a pier. Since the hotel is on Carenero Island you take a 3 minute water taxi ride from the main island...

The hotel is very nice, very clean, and excelent personalized attention from the owner (Adriano) and his wife. I really enjoyed the fact that the hotel is not in the main island which is very loud; while...

We enjoyed staying here so much! We had house number 5, at the far end, with no neighbours on one side. On the water and with beautiful views. Beautiful sunsets from the deck outside and the light shining from underneath gave us the chance to see beautiful fish at night. The house itself was perfect. Beautiful wooden floor, very clean,...
