“Paradise! Cannot be missed”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

We stumbled across this place when we first arrived in Bocas and completely fell in love. It's pure paradise - very cute place surrounded by water and beautiful palm trees! Great drink offers for happy hour and really friendly staff making us feel so special and welcome. This place cannot be missed when visiting Bocas!

“A little of the beaten path”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

We came over for a few hours from the main island and happened upon this place by chance. The private cabanas just off the dock from the main restaurant looked amazing. We sat right over the water an ordered a few beers and two items to share. The coconut shrimp were huge and the calamari was as fresh as it comes. The walk through the local neighborhood was a little daunting, I wouldn't want to do it at night. There may have been another way to arrive we just didn't find it. It was a nice break from the busy town site of Bocas and well worth the $2.00 water taxi each way. We even had a chance to talk with the owner about her upcoming US Thanksgiving buffet which looked like a great deal!

“beautiful, tranquillity. Neverland you wont want to leave!”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

We decided to stay here on our two nights off and were blown away. We had. Private room with comfy bed ac and hot water with decent pressure and wifi. The cabin is situated ON the water with a breathtaking view that blew my hangover away in the morning. The restaraunt and bar is wonderful, great food at very reasonable prices topped with a fantastic selection of cocktails and all day happy hour... Perfect! On site there is also a very quaint gift shop with a myriad of authentic items for sale. You also get use of kayaks as a guest. Overall a very well established and welcomimg place to stay with all the comforts you need, in a private cabana over the water... Need i say more???

“Just out of town and great food”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

They really produce some great food here. $1 water-taxi ride from Bocas town (it's on Caranero Island) Kind of charming-funky-island. Slightly out of the way but you'll love it.
