The food here was quite good and the waiters are very nice but the service is extremely slow. I mean debilitatingly slow - slow to take your order, slow to get the bill etc etc. But the restaurant itself is fun and pleasing to sit in right by the harbour. If you do come here be prepared to order a...

Spent one pleasant night at Hotel Limbo, worth the extra for an ocean front room to get the breeze. I was worried it might be noisy, but no noise issues at all! Hot water, nice clean sheets, air con, tv and a safe, right in the centre of town. The restaurant downstairs is also excellent with a really cool vibe,...

The hotel is ok. It's centrally located in Bocas, but over-priced for what it offers. The bed wasn't great, the room smelled a bit strange, the water in the shower never got very hot. Everything else would have been ok, but at a lower price point. There are certainly better, cheaper places to stay, but it's a decent alternative.

The Hotel is an older property however it was clean and served the purpose. Stayed for 4 nghts. Only thing missing in room was a hair dryer. Hotel is right on the water. Close to all amenities. The Staff were friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was fresh and for it being included in the price of the room was standard...

Hotel is right by the sea and in the middle of town. Provides good service, clean rooms and a great starting point to explore the area. Buffet breakfast is not huge but more than enough to start your day.

I sat at the Limbo restaurNt because I thought the restaurant had a fun& nice ambiance. Two ladies saw me but it still took them 10minuted to bring me a menu. The salad I ordered was good but way too expensive (9$ for salad and three shrimps) and the limo made was 3$ and tasted like shampoo. The worst part...

$180 bucks for a seaside view room and it simply is not worth it. I would have paid $40 max for a room of that quality. Bad service, horrible outdated facilities, and bad overall experience. There are much better options. Don't waste your money here.

This review is about the restaurant, not the hotel rooms. We came here for a few drinks in the afternoon and it took us two hours to get two drinks. Service is unbelievably slow. When we got our order, one of the drinks tasted funny. I gave it back to the waiter, who was really nice about it. It took...

Let me get this out of the way, yes the view and set up is great. But it is also great at any of the restaurants along the main drag in Bocas Town. There were many things wrong with our meal but probably the most important for a potential guest is this: we ordered the "fish of the day," and...
