“Beware...”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

Buyer Beware and google Casa Del Sapo before you book. There is history! The web pictures are impressive for sure and the location is beautiful other than that it was a nightmare for us. The suite upstairs in the back house had potenial. Our bed linen was torn, stained and discusting on both beds. The curtains were shredded and and provided no privacy from the neighbors which is another story of barking dogs and parties. There was limited kitchen eqip. Worst was the island had had no water for several days. There were no provisions for us. We had to bring ocean water up just to flush the toilet. The entry doors were not secure, they locked but I could push both sets of doors open. We were told up front of a very disturbing story from the former owner's sister and were very frightened and were only told after we arrived. We were orginally booked for 2 months and left after 2 days. We paid a dposit and the balance was returned.

Room Tip: check location of rooms, check linens, does the a/c work and security.

The apartments are conveniently located on Isla Carenero, directly across the water from bocas town water taxi dock. Only costs $1 to taxi across to Bocas. It was a very comfortable clean apartment with A/C, and comfortable beds. We did some cooking but the cooking pans and utensils were very limited, pans totally scratched up. Locals are constantly walking the path in front of the building but there are bars on all windows and doors, so it is secure. High speed internet was down most of the time, had to use Casa Acuario's internet next door. We enjoyed being able to walk to Bibi's restaurant (awesome food!) and a small beach about 15 minutes walk away. The down side to this apartment is the location. It's on the edge of the local village which is very dirty, trash on thenground everywhere and smelled like sewer. You can hear the booming music from Bocas town sometimes all night. I would stay on this island again but further down the beach away from the noisy village and noisy Bocas town. This is not a good location for sleep.
