We stayed in this hotel in December 2018. We have chosen it because it was in town center, right on the main street and close to the piers to embark to visit the other islands. The rooms were well furnished, comfortable, clean and with great wifi. The property offers only bed

So glad we upgraded to the penthouse suite. Karmin was very helpful at the hotel on the phone and her English was great. It would have been nice to have ice available instead of going to the store next-door but the view and amenities of the penthouse suite more than made up for

I stayed here for two nights in July 2018. Staff was VERY professional and friendly, including Carmen and Sasha and the owner. The bed was impeccably comfortable. I hate super hard beds that some places in latin america or europe have, but this was perfectly suited to the

Hi, Bocas if pretty quiet. You can, however, walk across the street from the PR and there are water taxis and for a very nominal fee will take you to some great beaches. In the same location there are also tour companies. Also, the wonderful Front Desk personnel can assist you with all of this. The room we had on the 3rd floor had a bdrm. with a double (as I recall) bed and there was another bed in the living room. It was perfect for two females. You will need to fly to Panama City into the International Airport. You'll then need to get a cab to cross town (an hour or so, depending on time of day) to the domestic airport for the hour flight to Bocas. We landed at 8:00a at the International airport and had a tour guide meet us. He was fabulous and showed us Panama (canal, Old Panama and other sights),and then took us to the domestic airport for our 4:00p flight to Bocas. It was a fun day! We also spent the last night at an airport hotel in Panama City for our early-morning flight the next morning. I hope you enjoy Bocas as much as we did!

Thank you for your answers Larry and April! No, we are located in Town on the Main Street within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, etc. We are across the Street fromthe Sea, so you will get a sea view in most of our rooms. We recommend several nice beaches to visit during the day. Red Frog is about a 7 minute boat taxi and Bocas del Drago is about a 30 minute drive by land. They are 2 of the best options for swimming beaches.

"highter floors have less traffic noise"
"!st level not facing the road is very quiet."
"Great views from the penthouse..."
"All the rooms seemed equally as good"
"if you want a sea view get a room on the top floor so you can see over the buildings opposite - you'll still hear the lorries though!"
