I looked at and tried to book here for weeks leading up to our arrival. In the end we arrived without reservations. A good thing as we ended up getting a better room for less. Great because it wasn't worth the original price. But for the deal we got showing up midday worth it. The breakfast was mediocre at best with no selection except take it or leave it. My partner does not eat eggs so unfortunately for him it was leave it on two consecutive mornings. The air conditioning was pretty good. The shower although yes right next to the bed, was awesome. Great pressure and more hot water than we tested out. Would have been incredibly nice if someone had mentioned the back stairs. As we hauled our big packs up the questionable and narrow spiral staircase in the front. Not sure that we would stay again. But for the price can't complain.

I agree with earlier reviews -- tho there were no bed bugs fercryinoutloud. Rooms a little rough around the edges [shower was an add-on and is IN the bedroom], but dining area/dock on the water is a delightful, breezy place. Just far enough from the center of town to be quiet and peaceful, but a short walk into the center and several small groceries [yes, they are all Chinese run and locals call them "chinos"] along the way for your water. ice and booze needs. Very friendly and accommodating staff.

Room tip: Don't bother paying the higher price for an "ocean view" room.

Nothing special, but after traveling extensively in Central America this was ok for the price. I can imagine in high season the town is packed so this would be most likely considered mid-range. The hotel was extremely quiet so we had no noise issues. It is about a 5 minute walk from the main plaza so the area is not so congested. Great looking dining room over the water but unfortunately we were there off season so we were only served breakfast. It was hot but a little on the skimpy side. The bed was great and the linens were clean. There was a tv but the English language selection was limited (unlike other hotels we stayed in while in Panama). The bathroom was tiny and it would appear the shower was a bit of an afterthought as it was placed in the corner of the room with only a shower curtain to block it from the living space. Overall though we enjoyed our stay. Security was not an issue as we passed the front desk on entry someone was always there and the service was outstanding. Our flight back to Panama City was not until 5:00 and we managed to extend our check-out to 3:00 since the hotel was so quiet. Great stay in Bocas.

Room tip: AS for a room with a balcony and water view.

Great waterfront hotel. 10 Minutes walk into town. Perhaps the "chitres" ( beach chiggers" got to the previous reviewer. No doubt one needs to wear bug repellant when going to visit the beach or jungle islands. It is the tropics after all. No bugs in our bed! During low season many things might be closed or hours changed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Friendly staff, thanks Florencia! We truly LOVE this place! Mike And Sherri

And changing the mattress is not the solution. After 3 nights, I had near 50 bites on one leg. First floor is noisy because you can hear all the staff loud conversations. The room we had was very small. We could barely walk between the two beds. Breakfast was elementary but ok.

Room tip: Be sure they decontaminated the rooms from bed bugs by-the-books if you don't want to bring bad memories home.
