Great location and the tropical plants surrounding the hotel give you a degree of privacy not found elsewhere in town. Sally (owner) is wonderful, helpful, charming,engages guests on veranda at breakfast and leisure, good stories. Staff very friendly and helpful. My week stay 3/4-3/11 was fabulous and will definitely book again on return to Bocas

I was a little skeptical about this property because I had heard it was somewhat "like a hostel". We stayed for seven nights and I found the room, bathroom and common areas all to be clean. The staff was very helpful. They helped my husband seek medical attention one evening when he became ill. I would definitely recommend this hotel...

This charming boutique hotel in the center of Bocas was the perfect blend of hospitality, location, amenities and price. We stayed for 3 nights in January and wished we could have changed our arrangements to include a few more days. Sally and the staff know all the ‘right’ people and places to maximize your visit to the area. It was...
