This hotel on Carenero Island has awesome green surroundings and the owners make you feel comfortable like at home. This is a caribbean chalet style hotel with this i mean don't expect phone or tv at the room.
Wake up early to get a kayak before the sun goes strong and take a trip around the island for free for what others charge you $10 per hour each, this way you get to know some parts of Carenero you usually don't see and is a great plus for this hotel.
They include you the breakfast, not so fancy but enough to fill your morning.
The night at the restaurant is a good atmosphere to take some drinks and chat with other travelers.
The beach is calm and we even saw a manta ray at our feet.
Overall: this hotel is a great option if you are looking for a cheap stay, green landscape (usually the hotels in Colon Island don't have more than a palm tree at the entrance) and a travel experience. The only con i think is the water taxi to the main island, and the noisy other guest when staying in side by side rooms (you can hear literally everything because is a wood construction).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our waterfront paradise is on the island, Isla Carenero. The resort now encompasses 6 1/2 acres of lush, tropical landscaping and over 600 feet of waterfront. Our backyard is verdant rain forest. We sit on a point facing west, which captures the refreshing Caribbean breeze and offers up fabulous sunsets. We are just a two minute boat ride across the bay to Bocas Town. We enjoy the convenience of close proximity to town, yet are removed from the hub hub, noise, pavement, cars and heat, while on our own tropical island.The resort is peaceful and quiet. We have hummingbird feeders throughout. Many different birds, including parrots can be heard singing and conversing in the trees. ... more less
