Casa Blanca makes a fine place to stay for short or longer stays. It is a ten minute walk from the main drag of Bocas Town, which makes it quieter than most, and just three blocks from the airport. There are a couple of grocers nearby where you can buy snacks and drinks, and a few restaurants on the same road. The place is kept very clean and sheets and towels are always fresh. The bathroom is roomy and there's always hot water. The a/c works well, and the in-room refrigerator is very handy for storing leftovers and cold drinks. Strangely, there was no lamp by the bed, but after I inquired about it, one appeared in my room while I was out.
Owners Ted and Blanca are very friendly and anxious to make your stay comfortable. Knowing I wanted the use of a microwave every day, they accommodated my request, and even arranged for breakfast at another hotel. Ted is an old Bocas hand and knows a lot about the island and its history.
My only complaint would be the noisy water pump outside my ground-floor room, which meant I had to keep the window closed and use the a/c (the night air would have been plenty cool otherwise). I would suggest requesting an upstairs room.
