My husband and I are headed to Bocas for the first time at the end of May and are not sure where to stay. We want to be on the ocean. We're not into the late-night scene, but active during the day and enjoy drinks and good food in the evening. Carenero sounds like a good fit for us, with only a short boat ride to Bocas Town. We are looking at the Buccaneer Resort and Blue Marlin Suites (Pickled Parrot Bar), but so few recent reviews are a bit concerning.
Also considering Koko in Saigon Bay. It sounds unique and we like the idea of being in a neighborhood.
Have read a lot of the discussions, but just don't see a lot about Carenero. Any advice to help us make a decision is appreciated.
