Georgeous, peaceful cabin away from the noise of the main strip. The kitchen was great and we loved hanging out on our beautiful veranda. The owner went beyond her duties when she organised to post something I left in the cabin. Thank you!

There are only so many times you can say this before it looses all value, but Panamas Paradise definately qualifies! Apart from the friendly and welcoming staff that you will always fnd ready to answer any questions that you may have, they have the most comfortable beds that I have slept in since leaving home...

We loved staying here. It was so peaceful with sounds of the village. The grounds were beautiful with paths, plants, hummingbirds and cats. We got fresh towels and trash emptied everyday and sheets were changed every third day. The cabanas are beautiful and super clean with everything one could need. Our bed was huge and comfy and there were many pillows!

The bicycles came in so handy and we used them everyday and even cycled to Playa Bluff. It can get very hot in the day maybe due to the tin roofs but there were 5 fans in all parts of the cabana! WiFi works well in the cabanas as the routers are close by though the speed of the internet fluctuates but overall good enough for work! There's cable tv too.

The first night we had no water, that was pretty uncomfortable after a day of travelling. But early the next morning, the water was back! Do note that the cabanas are not fully sealed and we had cockroaches visit us though we never left any food out. There are sprays included to fight the pests and mosquito nets for the bed. Windows are screened too so no worries! While we were there, there was a problem with the safe, as the last tenants lost the key but no problem as we just left our valuables with Jenny. They eventually got a new safe and we used it.

Jenny is a great host, helpful, efficient and knows a lot about the area. Always running around taking care of things, on top of being a mum and even helping out the neighbours with construction! She's amazing! She also helped us print our air tickets out, a real life saver! Jenny's dad was also very friendly and helpful and so were the other staff. They also did our laundry for a small fee and it came back the next day with everything smelling so nice.

Thank you very much! Hope we will meet again.

My friends and I recently stayed here on a surf trip, and we loved it. We had the unit for 3 people up stairs with the giant balcony complete with hammocks, couches, tables and chairs. First thing you get when you check in is a free ice cold beer, which is refreshing after a long trip! The unit was excellent, it had plenty of space for us to store our boards, bags and other belongings. Also had a safe available. It was very clean. The staff would show up daily to change the towels and take the trash and recycling. And the decorating was very professional, we heard that Jenny (the person who operates it) had done the artwork on the walls which was very impressive. It even had satellite TV, so we were able to watch the Super Bowl and Olympics, which was cool. There is free wifi, which worked great, we were able to watch a surf movie one night streaming it from Youtube. The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, burners, and all the necessary cooking equipment. The unit is also very conveniently located in Bocas. There is a grocery store one block away, we were able to ride bikes (which came free with renting the unit!) to go surfing everyday, as well as ride into town and have dinner and party at the local bars, very convenient. Jenny and her whole staff were very accommodating, friendly and helpful. They always went out of their way to help in anyway possible. They were always very friendly and greeted us with a big smile and hello. This place feels like a second home. Can't wait to come back!!! Thank you Jenny, Mama, Junior, and the rest of the crew for making our stay so enjoyable!!!

We stayed for 3 weeks in a cabana with shared bathroom and kitchen. The host Jenny is fantastic and went out of her way to help us. The free bikes is a great touch. The cleanliness could not be faulted with fresh towels and mats daily. The cabins are gorgeous.

Nice cabins, clean and nicely decorated. The cabins al have kitchens and bathrooms. We had to share kitchen and bathroom in the first cabin and had our own in the second cabin. We knew from the start, that we had to move from one cabine to the next and we agreed to that. The staff helped move the luggage, so it was no problem at all! And the second cabin was even nicer! Jenny and the other staff are very helpful and Jenny knows a lot about Bocas. Everyone in Bocas knows Jenny too, and that's a good thing!
And the bikes are very nice, it's a nice way to get around on the island.

I stayed at Jenny's for over 2 weeks in Nov '13 and Feb '14. In my opinion it's the best place to stay in Bocas when you are 2 people. And I've been in Bocas for a long time.

It's slightly more expensive than the hostels in town but for that you get things like silence at night, bikes, drinkable water, hammocks and of course you don't have to share bathroom, kitchen, fridge etc. with lots of people.

That's what made me come back and in the time I was gone they even improved the place with small details.
