I don't remember leaving a hotel after just 1 night... That's exactly what we did at the Punta Caracol Acqua-Lodge.
This hotel has a sole advantage: its picturesque location. But don't make mistakes: the corals around are dead and you will do a much better snorkeling in Zapatilla.
For the rest, it is a nightmare. Despite the huge price tag (375 dollars a night), this hotel is nothing more than a bag-packer location.
The rooms are very poorly maintained. Cleanliness is put into default (we found a cockroach in the bathroom). Service is minimal (no spa, no fitness, etc.). Staff is extremely inexperienced. Food is just a disaster.
During dinner, water started to leak into the main room. A few minutes later, light was off as the genset was malfunctionning. In our plates, what had been presented as salmon proved to be a very nasty, overcooked white fish. The crepe, as a desert, was simply ridiculous.
Tours are overpriced compared to anything that you can find in Bocas town.
We had booked 3 nights and left after just 1. Punta Caracol is a place to avoid absolutely, except maybe for a quick drink.
