“Lovely place, bring earplugs.”
Reviewed 4 November 2012

We stayed at this beautiful place for a few nights and absolutely loved everything - except the CHICKENS in the backyard. At 5 in the morning they start their morning choir and if the dogs upstairs are up, they join in. I woke up every morning and couldn't go back to sleep because of the noise.
Other than that, it was perfect. Clean, spacious and perfect location! Absolutely recommend it if you have earplugs or are a heavy sleeper :)

We stayed there for 4 nights in February. The room was big and beds were comfortable. The bathroom was a bit aged but served its purpose and water worked perfectly. For a very good price it included a fridge, perfectly working air conditioner, a laptop connected to the internet!!! and a flat TV (cable) that Dennis insisted we should watch (sorry, but there was too many nice places to visit and things to do in Bocas, so, no TV for us). Location was good: a short walk from restaurants, main street etc, and far away enough from the noisy places. We only missed a little more outside space, but in general, great value for the price we paid.

I stayed in a 2 bed room with a friend in March 2012. We called the morning we were departing and booked a room for 2 nights. It was easy to find (the yellow house on the corner) and the owner was there when we called up. Filled out 1 piece of paper, handed the owner the cash for the night, and we were set. Love how simple things are in Panama!

The shower had great water pressure, though we turned it off while we sudsed up, hearing about the scarcity of water in Bocas. The AC ran like a charm! You can get any channel you want on the TV and after spending 8 days in Panama hostels with no TVs or hotels with only spanish speaking stations, it was actually nice to be able to watch some news (or trash) before going to bed.

While this was a very basic B&B, it was clean, had all the things you need (fridge, AC, clean bathroom). Also far enough from the main drag that you are not hearing partygoers at all hours. The only downside were the roosters - woke us up at 5am/6am the first morning. It was horrific! The next morning I woke up, but was able to get back to sleep. i think anticipating the roosters crowing made it easier to sleep through.

The rooms are good value and include air con, flat screen tv,laptop ,safe and a fridge. The hotel is in a good location and close to restaurants and shops. We spent 8 nights on this visit and will stay again in the future. The rooms are very secure and the owners are friendly.

Great place to stay if you need amenities. My boyfriend was happy because it had Cable TV and a laptop with Wi Fi.

Great security because it is run by Americans who are also really nice.

We stayed at Casa Amarilla (the yellow house) for three nights. Owner Dennis has four rooms on the first floor, and lives right above. Clean rooms, with excellent amenities (wifi, lcd/cable tv with decent english channels, hot shower, powerful a/c) at a very reasonable price. It's located on calle 5, a five minute walk from calle 3, the centre of Bocas town. It's also a short walk from the Bocas airport. Apart from the early morning wake-up calls from the roosters Dennis keeps in the yard next door, there's nothing not to love about this neat little inn! Best to book online and early as Casa Amarilla fills up quickly!

Casa Amarilla is a very good place to stay in bocas. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable about the area (and for the English speakers, they're from Denver, so their language skills are impeccable). The rooms are well maintained, are very reasonably priced, and have great amenities (cable TV, fridge, AC, hot water). The minor downside is that the chickens in the yard next door may wake you up in the morning (not sure that isn't the case at all places in bocas).
