“Great Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

This is now our favorite hotel in Bocas. We had a rustic room overlooking the water which seemed like a slice of paradise.
The owners were very helpful when roads were closed and travel became impossible.

this was the second time we stayed at this property. We will be back !!!!!
Personal service-great hosts-could not ask for anything more.
Out of the mainstream, but easy to get to the "action".

Room Tip: if you want a good nights sleep-especially on the weekends stay in the main house. the cabins over...

We spent a week at Bahia del Sol in late December - early January 2012. We stayed at the Master Suite with the view of the sea. The room was really large and smartly done: everything was very simple, but there were small shelves and hooks in the right places, so it was easy to avoid the mess. We could have lived without the jacuzzi, but did love the shower on the terrace/balcony (no worries, there are curtains, so you won't make a show when you shower there). There were always fresh towels in the room, and beach towels were available. A few reviews mentioned that the walls are very thin, so you don't get enough privacy. This didn't bother us - because this is not a hostel, no one made noise at 3 am. The view was great, so that when it rained for three days in a row, we didn't get bored to spend most of the time in that room.

The breakfast is the most memorable part of that stay. Jack was really inventive and made something new every morning. And even if sausage is not what we eat for breakfast in our daily life, it made perfect sense in that situation: if you go on a our or surfing in the morning, sometimes it means that you won't have lunch until late in the day, and that breakfast really kept us full. The atmosphere was fun, Lee and Jack are very interesting people to talk to; because all the guests sit together, it's also a great way to meet other travellers - we made some friends during that trip.

Lee and Jack know the area really well, and their advice were extremely helpful. We didn't have to do much planning in advance. If we woke up and thought it would be nice to go on a tour of the Bocas archipelago that day, Lee or Jack would make a quick call and find us seats, or have other great suggestions.

Last bust not least: this area is bug- and mosquito-free. This is very important. Other islands, such as Isla Carenero and Isla Bastimentos might provide a more authentic experience to those who want to live right in the jungle, but sandflies (or sunflies?) in the former case and ants in the latter may be a big problem. The bites of those tiny flies at Carenero itch and leave you with small ulcers, and make you use that stinky bug spray the whole time. So, Isla Colon was a great choice, and Bahia del Sol was located at a good enough distance from the centre of the town to make our stay peaceful (a 15-minute walk or a quick 2$ taxi would get you to all the bars and restaurants).

Room Tip: We do recommend the room in which we stayed - Master Suite. The views are gorgeous, and we like the...

This is probably the best place to stay if you want to be close to the action, yet far enough to get a solid nights rest. We rented the room the casa right next to the main house at Bahia Del Sol. For 70$/night it was a steal. The room overlooked the water and was very rustic chic. Also, we had tons of hot water...so nothing to worry about there.

Jack is an amazing cook. The breakfasts were like dining at a delish restaurant each AM.

This place is highly recommended!

If you want to be close to good restaurants, bars and fun but still be able to relax and just stare at the ocean and enjoy the nature this is the place for you.
We especially enjoyed the sundowners with a glas of wine on our own private deck, ideal way to relax after a full active day.
Besides that, the good home made breakfast by jack and coffee served by Lee is a nice way to start your day.
