Everyone here was so hospitable to us. Luis and his family really know how to make you feel like you are welcome. Their restaurant is fantastic home cooking style. The rooms are very clean and they do a great job maintaining the place.

Fantastic location "on the sea", with wonderful carribbean views. Room tip: The front rooms upstairs have the best views, two directions. We liked this more "remote" and "less developped" island better than the town at the main island. The downsides are of course that you need a boat to go to the beach, and if you want to go to...

The view from room and reassurance are amazing. The room had a fan and air conditioning. Staff was very friendly. It is on bastimentos island.....which has great beaches, but not near hotel. The island doesn't have a lot of entertainment, so you might be taking a boat to isla colon often. The boat ride is short and beautiful, but it...

One word to describe Bastimentos Island is Local, so if you wanna live the Panama Caribean culture this is the place to go, and I only have good things to say about their people and the hotel which by the way is definitely the best place to stay. But there are also some down sides of it, like the water...

We stayed in the caribbean view for one night only and we wished we had had longer to spend there. We felt immediately at home, the family is very friendly and helpful. The food is excellent.
