This is nothing more than a few rooms upstairs at the back of a seedy bar. It felt more like a cell. Picture of my bed. Avoid Bocas. If something smells like a dump and looks like a dump then it is a dump.

We were part of a tour group (standard level) with G Adventures. The room was clean. Our air conditioner did not work well but other tour members had excellent a/c in their rooms. We had hot water. The maids seemed to clean what they had time for. We were there over New Year's Eve, so the place was packed full.... More

Not expensive but very clean hotel with free wifi in the lobby. Very friendly Staff Members. Supermarket is directly at this hotel. It's located at the main street, so you have always short ways to everywhere you'll gonna go.

The hotel is located in the main street of isla colon, close to all restaurants and bars. Also 10 minutes walk from the airport! The room was not really clean, the sheets were stained. The staff were not informed about anything! 40$ a night was too much for this room.

I'm from the USA so I've stayed in all kinds of hotels in North America from Motel 6 & 8 to The Hilton. I've been living in Central America for 4 months. I was very happy to find this hotel and found the price of $30-40/night very reasonable. I was/am so tired of hostels! My room was clean, the bed... More

I wanted to pay a bit more just to have a more comfortable stay, but I was wrong. The receptionist were so rude and seemed like they did not want my business. When I got into the room, I found a dead cockroach in one of the corners, the bed sheets were stained. Horrible stay, place was filfthy, not worth... More

We got to Bocas del Toro without a reservation and after checking a few hotels that were booked finally came across this one. The price per night was very affordable, the hotel is nothing fancy and the bathroom smelled a little bit but for the price it was more than fine since we were just looking for a place to... More

Been there jan 5-7th, the hotel is just "ok" if you're just looking for a place to sleep. During that time we didn't have hot water in the room (we had 2 rooms) so take in mind that it may happen. The location is great, and it feels pretty safe - my friends left money in the room and nothing... More

“During the Holidays (Nov, Dec, & Jan) and the summer, make reservations in advance. Ask for a room far from the main street and plaza. If you're looking at the hotel doors, that's the right-center.”
