Off season so gal friend and I paid $40 (negotiated at front desk) for private room w/bath (hot shower) and a towel each, room w/2 beds (comfy), TV in room, aircon, and breakfast as shown in pix on website. Don't expect the Ritz. If you're backpacking you know what to expect. (I always bring my sleepwalk and t-shirt to cover...

One of the best places I stayed in my 4 months trip. The breakfast is delicious. The location is right on the water with a beautiful deck and great sunsets. The owner is great and helpful Best value for money in Bocas, If I ever come to Bocas I would definitely return here.

My only site of the hotel was walking through it on the way to the back restaurant and it was nice. I even mentioned to my wife that "this is how a hotel should look" with fresh paint, stained woodwork on floor and ceiling. Very nice. As mentioned, We only had dinner here, but the food was very good, fair...

This hotel oozes charm as you approach it from a speed boat as we did. The outside deck area is lovely and a great place to watch life go past on the ocean. The room looked nice when I first walked in but I quickly realised it wasn't that clean (small bits of rubbish on the wooden floor). No bedside...

1: Way to expensive considering the rooms were pretty shabby with very stained linnens. 2: The breakfast included was very basic with only a little fruit and orange juice from the box. not fresh or anything. Also the women working didn't wipe down the booth after people ate so it was sticky and dirty even at 12pm when I checked...

Rooms are relatively spacious, you get the basics, clean sheets, a towel, and a/c. The receptionist were cold, and gave us an annoyed look when we asked for help when we disturbed them from watching shows on their iPad. Like others have mentioned the service seems to be a theme in Bocas in general except for a few choice establishments....

Charming hotel, built with a terrace over the water. Our room was functional and clean, but not fancy. AC worked well. The free breakfast is plentiful.. Happy Hour specials are tasty Something to note: Kitchen Staff throw compost right out the window from the kitchen into the bay. So there was a bunch of food waste swimming in the water....

We were not impressed with our experience here. Firstly, when we arrived, the rooms we had reserved were not the ones we were given. Secondly, the rooms were filthy. The maid may have changed the sheets but the doors, the floors, everything was filthy. We asked to speak to the manager on two different occasions but remarkably he was not...

A nice hotel close to everything in Bocas town, but in a quiet street. Beautiful deck to watch the sunset, eat breakfast and just relax! A small bar and free breakfast. Big rooms. Perfect if you wan't to stay in town.

We had a wonderful time while staying here. Close to town, groceries, super staff and Danny is a wonderful manager! Breakfast on the deck is unbeatable! Relaxing, clean and a great hang out for your time in Bocas! The one downfall is the trash. Most was from the neighbors and then we saw the kitchen staff throw fruit out the...
