Just got back from 3 days at the Limbo by the Sea with my wife and 3 year old daughter. From the moment we walked in the door the smell of the place was one of no air circulating and who knows when they last time they cleaned the place. We had the "best" room in the hotel (top floor overlooking the ocean). The bathroom was dirty and the bathtub had ants crawling all over it. The bed covers were dirty and one of the pillows looked strange (dark color through the pillowcase) so my wife pulled it out and it was dark yellow, lumpy and had a blood stain on it to boot. We immediately walked through the town to see if any other hotels available and unfortunately there were none so we were stuck. We also were unable/unwilling to shower in the bathroom (despite the ants) as the water from the sink and shower was yellow and smelled funny. We had to buy jugs of water from the town store to bathe with. The staff at the restaurant, while not even remotely busy, acted as if we were bothering them any time we sat down. Really unfriendly and by our last day we passed on the included breakfast just to eat somewhere else. My wife complained about many of the things and near the end of our trip the concierge told her "all you do is complain, why don't you just leave?" Very professional.... All in all, we literally were counting the minutes until we could leave Bocas del Toro from the moment we got there. Probably the worst hotel (and this for close to $200/night, a fortune in Bocas) and one of the worst vacation experiences of my life. Strongly urge anyone to stay away from this place.
