Muhammed Parvez was the perfect hotelier. He began our stay by picking us up at the airport in Bocas, without having to be asked.

Because his guest in our apartment was ill, he asked us to spend one night in a different apartment in the building. And it seemed to pain him to have to ask. Hardly an inconvenience for us, considering the circumstances.

The airline had lost my wife's suitcase somewhere between Denver and Panama City and Muhammed spent two days chasing it down, no small feat considering that the airline did not answer their phones. When the bag arrived, Muhammed sent one of his staff to the Bocas airport, retrieved it and delivered to our room. All this help without even being asked by us.

Our two bedroom apartment on the third floor of the building was satisfactorly outfitted with comfortable beds, adequately stocked kitchen and, best of all, a spacious balcony with a gorgeous westerly view over Saigon Bay. Every evening we looked forward to and enjoyed our cocktail on the balcony and were never disappointed, rain or shine.

The beach across the road is reasonable, although at high tide it disappeared. There are better beaches at Red Frog and Bluff, but none so convenient.

Transportation into town is by taxi, at $1.20 per couple as of this writing, so it won't break your bank. For the energetic, on a partially cloudy day, the walk down the beach to town is quite do-able.

But we don't recommend walking it with all the groceries in hand. For many of one's grocery needs, the gas station next door to Les Jardin is quite well stocked and their prices are the same as down town.

We recommend Les Jardin and Muhammed Parvez. Our experience was good.

“Fabulous host, superb town”

My wife and I had a great week in one of Muhammeds condo's, situated a lttle way out of town. However, a taxi to town is 60 cents per person or you can walk most of the way along the beach, so no problem.
Muhammed is a great host and has a number of condo's in two adjacent blocks that he runs. Note though that you are very much amongst the locals here, rather than with a load of tourists. It is not an issue though, as everyone in Bocas, old and young, tourists and locals, all rub along just fine - it really is an incredibly laid back place, which we fell in love with.
The condos are very well priced compared to other options, so if you do n't mind being a little out of town, and enjoy tranquiliy, Muhammeds condos are a really good option
