Very clean hotel and friendly staff the best thing about this hotel is the location right at the fork in main street and yet no noise problems. Breakfast is what you want and they make it when you get there

I'm not sure where to start with my review! First, location, location, location! You could not ask for a better location in Bocas Town.

I can to Bocas Del Toro with friends and no accommodation. Unbeknownst to yourselves we had stumbled across the celebration of independence. Places were filling up fast and we found this cute little place on the corner, the price is relative and the rooms are clean with good air conditioning. The breakfast is quite hearty too and you can sit...

Danny Alamo is transforming this sleeper into the perfect island experience. We visited Hotelito in 2014, and we liked it. Now it is becoming THE place to be in Bocas del Toro. Danny's team has already given Hotelito a facelift, and a new patio. Next will be a restaurant & bar -- all highlighted by the tasteful decor and lush...

We choose to stay 4 nights at this hotel after checking other 3 establishments in Bocas Town with similar prices. Unlike the other waterfront hotels we checked, our room was very clean, spacious and airy (no moisture odors), with all the necessary commodities (good wifi, hot water, functioning air con, safe, fridge and daily cleaning service). The staff is friendly,...

This was the perfect place for our stay in Bocas Town. Centrally located and beautifully renovated. This is definitely a gem. We never had to venture far for food, drinks and adventure. The owner (he's from NYC too!) and staff are super friendly, nice and welcoming. The rooms were kept very clean, are well A/Ced, roomy and very comfortable. The...
