we had a good stay here with our family of 4. The owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. They were also very flexible. The houses are clean and spacious and on the water. The houses are on the Bay of Saigon which is a 20 minute walk from the town and, as they say on the website, it is in...

My family has taken 4 trips to Costa Rica & last year my son and I did a one day side trip to Bocas del Toro in Panama. On this trip in July we decided to send 2 nights in Panama and stayed at the Koko Resort. It surpassed all our expectations and even though we have stayed at some...

I had done a lot of research looking for a cabin on the water close to town and after much thought had chosen koko. We love it here. I read a lot of the reviews about being away from town and in a residential area. I can't laugh at that enough, you're in a foreign country, you are bound to...

We stayed in the Gecko cabin for 5 nights. It was quiet and peaceful. Other reviewers complained about the locals, but we had no problems with noise. The locals were all very friendly and we loved that all of the kids were playing outside, either soccer or fishing in the boats or playing in the water. The cabin was really...

My husband and I enjoyed a 4 night stay at Koko just a couple weeks ago. We read a lot of reviews on trip advisor before choosing Koko and were very happy with our choice. The cottages built out over the bay are unique and provide more than most places on the island... Coffee maker, full fridge, air conditioning, nice...

We stayed at Koko Resort in April in the Starfish Cabin for my husband’s 60th birthday. We loved almost everything. The location was great – not in town, but in a residential area, an easy walk or cab ride to wherever we wanted to go. It is rustic and not 5 star (as the website will tell you) but worth...

We stayed 10 days in Panama, Couple of days in Panama City, and a couple of days in Koko Resort. We did read reviews of Koko so we kind of knew what to expect. Apartments are fair, nothing fancy, but not pretending either and everything is there. So far so good. BUT, to have a lumber shop right next to...

The very small woodshop that supports many families in the local community where we live is open during normal business hours like every other business. They are not loud, obnoxious or a problem for us or anyone else. Sorry but we are a property located in a community, the people in our community do not stop working because tourists decided...

The cottages and boardwalk are a beautiful design and the accommodations are clean and efficient. Lee was terrific in the morning and breakfast was delicious. It was very quiet and we were glad of it after seeing the bustle of Bocas Town. In the evenings, we'd sip cocktails on our deck or go out to the big end deck and...

Koko Resort is unlike any place I have ever stayed and made my honeymoon a wonderful and unique experience. The owners, Lee and Jack, treat guests and neighbors in the surrounding neighborhood like family. We stayed in the Dolphin, a two-story overwater bungalow. It had an equipped kitchen, sitting room and sleeping area downstairs, as well as a full bedroom...

My girlfriend and I recently stayed in the Pink House (about 200 yards from the main complex) It was isolated from the rest of the resort as far as distance but not in accommodation. I read a previous review below that seems to have very negative things to say about Jack, which in the short time we were there seemed...
