We stayed here 3 nights with a tour group, it was a nice stay. Luis and his family are very charming and make you feel welcome. The food is good at the restaurant. Upstairs rooms have a good Caribbean view as the hotel suggests! also has complimentary hammocks. bastimentos island as a whole probably isn't worth a visit so location...

We had a great time in Bocas; spending part of our trip on Bastimentos at this hotel and the remainder in Bocas Town. The food at this place was great, the owners were friendly and kind, and it was overall a great experience! I agree the accommodations are basic, "rustic" even, but the hotel is at a reasonable price point...

This is a most beautiful location on Isa Basimentos with very basic accommodations, a small hotel owned by the nicest family. The place is a bit shabby, but makes up for it with cleanliness & excellent service. The food, cooked by family patriarch Luis & assisted by his wife, daughters & grandchildren, is out-of-this-world. We were a group of 10...

We had an unusual experience, because the power was out - which meant there was no water either. That made it more rustic than usual, but the family that runs the place is great and did their best. Food was very good, and they helped us find a great hike to take to Wizard Beach, cared a lot about our...

This hotel is ok for the island. The entire island is pretty basic and literally covered in rubbish. The locals have zero respect for their home and have created a rubbish dump. If for some reason you really want to visit this island then do it as a day trip. If you want to stay here then you could do...

The best place in town for breakfast. Great pineapple pancakes and a decent cup of coffee. I didn't stay In the hotel, seemed a bit rustic, but breakfast and lunch were great. The service is slow like all of the places in town but people were friendly and kind. Coffee is a little hard to find in the early AM,...

Great location with the restuarant right at the hotel we were able to have a wonderful dining experience watching the sunsets while enjoying a bottle of wine. We were able to check out the snorkeling tour to cayo zapillas which is a must see. Great Hospitality , great food comfortable rooms with everything you will need.

This hotel is run by the most wonderful family. It's only a short water taxi ride from the main island so therefore is perfect for relaxing & unwinding. The hotel restaurant is really good and well priced. Rooms are clean, bathroom is a bit small and dark, but that's only one setback on a otherwise great hotel.

The beds are comfortable and has really good air conditioning! The food is amazing especially the lobster! You also hail a taxi boat to their dock!! The owner can ring his son to taxi you around the different islands of bocas del toro! I do recommend this place if you intend on staying on bastimestos island!

The hotel itself is ok, the room is adequet with airconditioning and hotwater. The problem for us was the location. While the hotel is clean, you can not say the same for the rest of the island with rubbish everywhere including the water. There is nothing to do on the island except take a 20-30 min walk over the hills...

Well we are sorry that your time was'nt what you expected. The island and hotel has made great improvement in many areas. Project Clean and Green has made this island trash free. In slow season the meals may take longer to prepare but being we are fully staffed meals should take no more than 20mins to prepare. The island offers...
