My husband took me here for an early Valentines dinner. I had the filet but did need to send it back to be cooked more. The food was excellent my husband liked his as well. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery, the staff was very nice. Management excellent!

We were fortunate to have such a lovely dining room to compliment our stay at the resort. All meals were excellent. And we were happy to enjoy their fresh lobster one night.

We only ate here for lunch, but the menu was very limited with mostly dinner options. Our very average burger was $12, and took an hour to reach our table because the restaurant was "slammed" with a table of 8 people. The grounds are very nice and if you are OK paying top dollar I am sure this would be... More

We walked up the long flight of steep stairs from the Seagull Cove resort to the Bocas del Mar resort for a change in restaurant. If you do this be very careful walking up and down the stairs. They are extremely steep. We were curious about the neighboring hotel since we could see it is a larger establishment. The resort... More

A very enjoyable place to eat and relax over the Pacific ocean. One of the best places we ate in Panama.

We enjoyed the food and the view very much. Breakfast included tropical fruits, the lunch menu had good salads and ceviche and we generally chose the catch of the day for dinner. My favourite: prawns in garlic sauce.

We recently visited for 3 days of deep sea fishing and stayed at the Bocas Del Mar Hotel. See my review of the stay. The restaurant was excellent. To my knowledge the best available in Boca Chica. The catch of the day was fresh and prepared well. The chefs secret sauce highlighted the fresh fish without overpowering it. The last... More

Great quality! My Panamanian in laws demanded to talk to the chef who they claim cooks better chicken with rice then they do.

We have just spent four most enjoyable and relaxing days at this resort.. The views across to the islands are wonderful, the rooms are very well appointed and equipped. Most of all, the staff are so friendly, approachable and ready to help. They arranged a 7am boat ride to see the local wildlife after rain had prevented a planned trip.... More
