I'll start by saying what is good about it, and that is the a/c, Bocas is such a humid place and anywhere without a/c is pretty unpleasant, hence why we stayed here. However even that has its downfalls, in that they are so strict with it, and only allow it on through certain hours. The customer service at the front desk is really dependent on the staff member you get. The two main people was a lady who was very nice and helpful, and a guy named Rory who made approaching him for information, less appealing then eating paint. It's definitely a running trend with the reviews about this place in regards to the staff, and it's no surprise when they have a guy working there with a severe lack of social skills and attempts to crack on to every second female guest, even those with boyfriends.
Stay next door.
