The room, staff,pools, views and food were extraordinary! So relaxing and unhurried. I will good back again and again. The views from the hotel are truly spectacular. The chef prepares a different dish every night. And is not to be missed! The staff is exceptional in seeing to your comfort.

My wife and I spent four nights and had a great time. Take the 4 hour snorkeling trip to various islands. It's totally cool. $70 a person and $8.5 if you want them to pack a lunch (samwitch, chips and a soda). The rooms are ultra modern shower separate from the big bath tub.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Bocas Del Mar, in Boca Chica, is a boutique hotel with modern, luxury features. In a privileged oceanside location on the mainland, it is perfectly positioned for a completely relaxing vacation. We were TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Award Winners in 2016 for the Top Hotel for Service in Panama. Our focus is on quality customer service and attention to detail. We have 20 large contemporary-style guest bungalows that are set in tropical gardens right alongside the glistening blue water of the Gulf of Chiriqui. Open your drapes each morning and the Pacific Ocean is there to greet you! Choose from several room types; from our spacious king or queen bed bungalows through to the exceptional Premier Suite. There's a gourmet restaurant & bar on site and we have not one but TWO stunning infinity-style pools to bathe in. There is also a small beach, except at high tide, and we have our own dock to head to more local beaches via water taxi or excursion boat - we are opposite the beautiful islands of the Gulf of Chiriqui and have a full ocean and land trip program. Plus a massage studio (advance reservation required). Just 5 minutes by car or watertaxi from Boca Chica village. ... more   less
