We (couple, 41 & 50) stayed at Hotel La Veranda for two nights in March 2014. We paid $55 a night for a room with a bathroom, fan and cable TV. We paid $5 extra for 24-hour air-conditioning. The room was big and the double bed comfortable. The bathroom was small and mostly clean. The shower has hot water. There is a large veranda with no view and a poorly equipped and dirty kitchen. The wi-fi did not reach the room. The hotel is in a quiet nieghborhood about ten minutes walking from boat docks, shops and ATM. There are a few shops and restaurants five minutes away walking. Hotel La Veranda seemed like an average value compared to other hotels/hostels.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

La Veranda is a beautiful guesthouse located a short five to ten minute walk to the bustling Bocas town. La Veranda offers a quiet environment for people to get a good nights’ sleep but is also very close to all the great nightlife that Bocas has to offer. This guesthouse offers some of the best prices in town. Large rooms with two beds are just $17 for the room. There is also free wifi. My husband and I have enjoyed calling this place home for the past week and look forward to a few more!

Built in the early 1900’s, the hostel boasts a large veranda with wicker rocking chairs for reading or relaxing. There is also a nice kitchen so you can experiment with those sweet Caribbean flavors. If you don’t feel like cooking, there are some delicious traditional Panamanian restaurants nearby. One such restaurant is just a few minute walk and has a nice refreshing pool. It is located right across the street from Habla Ya in the fenced in area behind the monte carlo hotel. Bocas’ first craft brewery just opened nearby and Mondu Taitu, which often plays danceable music with fun themes like 80’s night, is just a few minutes away.

This cute Caribbean bungalow has breazy upstairs rooms with comfy beds and is kept clean by Central American standards. It has a great open air kitchen and spacious verandah perfect for reading or chatting with other guests. It is set a few blocks away from the noisy town centre, so it is peaceful; though you can listen to the calming church singing from across thd street.

Never thought that I could find such a clean, chilling and beautiful place on Isla colon for such a little moneybag! The rooms are very big and have comfortable beds. On the nice Veranda you can sit and read a book or talk to people. They have not many rooms,so there are not a lot of loud people around - loved it.
It was absolutly perfect! It has also a simple and clean kitchen for cooking together. You^re not gonna find something better, I guess.

Room Tip: There are double rooms, dorms and single rooms. One is as clean as the other, all with own shower an...

I stayed at la veranda during my visit to Isla Colon. It is located Just a few blocks from down town, so it was quiet, which I liked. The up stairs, open veranda, has a sitting area which was a great place to visit with other guests and relax after a day at the beach.
The shared kitchen was clean and well equipped for preparing meals and morning coffee.
I will visit La Veranda when I return to Bocas Del Toro again.
