Please make an effort to train the staff to put their phones down and wait on customers. Last year i had a wonderful server, sweet, professional, friendly. She should have been someone to train your staff. I felt like I was inconveniencing the staff by placing an order. When my drink is empty, I honestly do not think a customer...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 February 2017

Lovely view from our balcony on the third floor . We could watch all the "action" happening on the Bay outside out room. Wooden walls, furniture with a nautical theme. Staff was friendly and helpful. Could not ask for a better place to stay.

Very attendant staff. Great breakfast. Very nice happy hour. Beautiful rooms and location. We got bumped up when our booked room air conditioner broke. No hassles.

Quite quirky 3 storey hotel built on stilts out over the water. We had excellent rooms with balconies looking out over the water, so had great views. Adjacent to our boat dock so we did not need a taxi, and only 5m to walk. Reception staff very friendly and knowledgeable, and great laundry service. Breakfast was good if a little...

We only spent one night here before checking into a villa we booked for the rest of the week and we enjoyed the stay. We reserved a large room overlooking the main street and it was just as neat and pretty as the pictures on the website. The front desk manager was a very nice woman, "Yacira", who went out...

Hi Jack F, Thanks for mentioning that Yacira made the extra effort to ensure you had a pleasant stay. Bocas does love to party, so we do what we can to accommodate when possible. Glad you enjoyed breakfast and the view.

2 friends and I stayed in the Luxury Suite and it was great! Very nice room with a great private balcony with waterfront view. Carla and her staff were great to us throughout our 4 night stay. Front desk staff was extremely helpful with information and any services we needed. Food and drinks are great prices and good quality.

My boyfriend and I spent two nights here and we are so sorry we didn't stay longer. I debated between a few hotels before booking the Hotel Bocas del Toro and staying there was absolutely the right decision. The accommodations were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

Highly recommended. Very nice hotel (keeping in mind that Bocas is a ramshackle tropical beach town, not Waikiki Beach). Staff is friendly and helpful, and American owner Carla is often around to provide tips, advice, info and just about anything you might need. Lovely location on the water.

Great hotel - right on the water, middle of the action. This place is a classic - old wooden structure with a restaurant on piers over the water in the back. I would image that the rooms overlooking the street could be noisy if there is some festival - in any case, I would spring for the rooms in the...

Middle of the action says it all! On the town side, you can watch bustling activity stroll on by. And on the water side, the never ending parade of boats coming and going from the islands. Where better to enjoy it all than in our hotel, restaurant and bar?
