this is a very good run hotel, lovely position right on the waterfront but away from the town so is nice and quiet, except for the passing boats which isn't a problem, lovely view out over the sea, very nice room, and verandah where you can laze in a hammock.

This is actually a three star (rated by luxury) hotel but the staff and service was a 10! Elsie at the front desk was always available, kind and offered her suggestions about which beaches or activities we might like, and Alondo was a jack of all trades-cooking, bringing us special food etc. There was a security guard all night too....

During my recent stay in Bocas del Toro I landed upon a true treasure..Bocas Inn. Close to the central part of town, we enjoyed it's convenient location. It is a smaller guest house that offers all the basic requirements you need in an idyllic setting over the water. Our room was one with a spectacular view of the bay. We...

Quiet spot just off main streets of Bocas Town. Very unassuming & very safe (with night guard on duty). Not a 5 star hotel but low key, inexpensive, laid back atmosphere with something like 8-10 rooms but only 1 other couple there during our stay. Helcelia (Helsie) was in the office about 12 hrs/day but always eager to help us-...

Dear Tom, thanks for your feedback! We'll forward your compliments to Hercilia and Orlando and hope you can come back to visit us some time in the future. There are environmental programs for beach and island clean-ups but more effort and help is needed from the entire community, thanks for pointing it out.

Gorgeous porch view (One of the travel guides used the porch view shot from the hall as a lead-in photo for Bocas town). Nice rooms, great breakfast, quiet location. Management and staff treat you like family. I was there for Floating Doctors on a medical mission but have been there also on vacation. I cannot imagine a negative review

We stayed at the Bocas in for three nights in February. Araceli, the manager, was always on site paying very close attention to all details. Orlando, who prepared breakfast, was wonderful. Although there was a buffet, he always willingly cooked eggs to order. Our favorites were his omelets and eggs Panamanian style. Yum! We ordered a special dinner (at extra...

Bocas inn is set in a super location on the waterfront. Great if you have a room in the front building. We were in a room in the back block over the office. Our room was large but the bathroom was tiny. The sink wasn't attached fully to the wall and the towels and bath mat in particular were very...

This is a quiet little B&B off the main strip in Bocas Town. Easy walking distance to everything. There is no TV - but why are you watching TV? Wifi is good. Lovely balcony and bar area. This is NOT on a beach. You can jump off the deck and swim. Awesome view of the boats anchored off shore. We...

It's a wonderfully peaceful place located very close to main street of Bocas, but away from other noisy and crowded hotels. The sea view terrace and breakfast area are simply georgous! Hosts are very helpful and create almost family like atmosphere.
