I had issues with confirming my private room. So I ended up sleeping in the dorms. The room was extremely hot and uncomfortable and there was construction going on. This is truly a party place and would be fun if that's what I would have been looking for. The outdoor swimming area was fun though, and drinks were cheap.

Our 2 night visit to Bocas Del Toro very quickly turned to into a 5 day party stay at one of the greatest hostels in the world. The swim area features a trampoline, swings, Tarzan rope, dive towers and slack line all into crystal clear ocean water. Not to mention the whole boardwalk this place is built on is also... More

Aqua lounge was an amazing place to party, eat and sleep. The staff was absolutely wonderful, always letting you know about events at the hostel and on the main island. They had an ever changing menu that was always satisfying and the cooks were so much fun!!:) The swings, trampoline, tarzan swings and dive tower surround the clear Caribbean waters... More

€1 boat ride from bocas town which is good for restaurants and tour booking. However there are many more beautiful places to stay around bocas. The hostel itself was very friendly and good if you want to party for 1 or 2 nights but our private room was very hot and lacked in cleanliness. If I visited again I would... More

A group of friends and I went here and had the best night we had on our whole trip! The staff and service was very quick and the dancefloor was spacious. I absolutely loved the pool in the middle with rope swings and diving platforms; made my night.

If you are looking for a nice place to party on Saturdays you should go here. Their happy hour is very cheap and you get to jump into the ocean pool they have whenever you want. Music and staff are very good and the beer is always cold. Tequila shots ar only $2 all night!

Superb nightlife can be found in Bocas del Toro and Aqua Lounge offers the best of it. Close to the perfect design, Aqua Lounge has an incredible outdoor swimming pool with a trampoline, two diving platforms and three swings to aid your descent to the water. There's plenty of fish and other sea creatures to see in the water so... More
