We stayed in the Gecko cabin for 5 nights. It was quiet and peaceful. Other reviewers complained about the locals, but we had no problems with noise. The locals were all very friendly and we loved that all of the kids were playing outside, either soccer or fishing in the boats or playing in the water.
The cabin was really cute and had everything we needed. The breakfasts were all yummy. We used the kitchen quite a bit, and we went to Tony's (a small grocery store) to buy lunch and dinner every day.
Jack and Lee are incredibly nice and helpful. When I sprained my ankle Jack made some phone calls to find me some crutches (crutches are notoriously hard to find as the clinic doesn't loan them out any more). They both checked on me regularly to make sure I was ok and offered to bring some dinner to me. They definitely went out of their way.
I'll have to come back to Bocas in order to see the sights (doctor's orders: stay off my feet) and when I come back, I'll definitely be staying here!
