The hotel is really clean. As I sat there people watching, there was always someone cleaning inside or outside. A really unique touch are a couple of parrots in a cage and their cute chatter throughout the day. The bed was very comfortable, the air conditioning was working extremely well. And the biggest plus was the location-my main stops were...

The rooms are nice and clean. It has a good location, the administrators are kind with tourists and they have a really nice deck in front of the hotel, where it's cool to sit at night with friends. It's important to verify if they accept credit card, because they were having issues with the machines.

My sisters from the states and I spent two nights there. We liked the location. So convenient to everything, restaurants, water taxi's to Carenaro's restaurants, and shopping in Bocas Town. I have stayed there before and recommend it to everyone.

Good place to stay in center of bocas. Hotel is basic and does the trick. Good air conditioning, tv, good size bathroom. No toiletries provided (no shampoo, lotion, soap; etc) but easily a 5 min walk from grocery stores. All in all, glad I stayed!

This small hotel looks to be one of the cleanest public facilities in Bocas Town. They have recently built a wonderful sitting area in front of their Hotel which allows you to people watch while enjoying a nice breeze and out of the hustle and bustle, which is Bocas. The owner informed us they will be also starting a small...

I thought I did my research. This hotel is NOTHING like the photos or reviews. It's clean and has an air conditioner and TV but that's it. No "lovely balconies" no "fluffy towels" and the rooms have no pix on the walls like in the management photos posted. I was not expecting luxury, but I was very disappointed with the...

Best location to be right at the center of Bocas Town. 5 minutes walk to the tiny local airport. Nice reception, fast Wifi, room has everything you need. More than clean! Try Birds for dinner, a couple of minutes walk down the road. Best food in town.

The town is small so pretty much any place will have a good location. We chose to stay in Bocas town as it provides options....trips, restaurants etc. This place was managed by nice people as the staff was kind and helpful. We got a free upgrade for our room so we (3 adults with one adult being our kid) were...

This hotel provides many essentials... mini-frig, a/c, cable tv, private modest bathroom. Its location is a little far from downtown but very convenient to Habla Ya Spanish Immersion School. There are two mercados very close and a nice little three table restaurant across the street where breakfast and lunch are $4 and really excellent. The hotel staff is very friendly...
