“Very central”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

Well positioned for a short stay on the island. Basic hotel but nothing wrong with it. Very close to the port and loads of nearby restaurants. We spent 2 nights there - probably long enough. A nice little place for breakfast opposite.

We stayed in the room in the front with a balcony. For some odd reason it did not have a number. I think at one point it was an apartment. It has a full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, living and dining area and a really cool spiral staircase leading up to a loft type bedroom with 2 beds. The hot water that was a huge selling point was not working. That was my biggest complaint. The ac was great as was the people watching from the balcony. The money we supported on the room we saved by doing our own cooking.

Standard hotel at the main street. They have small rooms, the beds were fine, but the shower was most of the time not warm. We did our laundry over there, but al the stains were still in it. It did smell fresh do.... The staff is very friendly and there's someone at the reception 24/7. A fine place to stay in boca, expecially because of the location. But not the best.
By the way, not all of the pictures belongs to this hotel. The lobby is way different, and we didn't had a garden. Great breakfast can be find across the street and not in the hotel.

Really surprised to see so many great reviews. Rooms are tiny, walls are paper thin and there was basically no hot water for the three nights we stayed there. Located on the noisiest street of Bocas. Other surprises included lack of towels one day and a power outage another (although this did affect the entire downtown area). Not great value for money.

We really enjoyed our stay in Laguna Hotel. Good prices, clean and big room and really confortables beds. We had a few problems with hot water in the shower but it happens island wide from what i heard. And a really nice restaurant just next door (el pecado). Just perfect!

If you want a affordable, clean, comfortable and a good service hotel, this is the best choice you will find on the island. Just avoid going on panama national holidays because the island feels overcrowded and the hotel sometimes cant keep up with all the influx of guests.
If you have trouble or any inquiry about the hotel or the island, you can ask for Felix, the manager, such a nice guy who tries his best to help you.

Reviewed 7 November 2012

Initially, Hotel Laguna was not my first choice because being a hotel their prices might be too high for a seasoned backpacker as myself, but was recommended by a source and later learned after a series of email correspondence their prices were reasonable and provided security within the room. Felix, the Administrator General, was also very sensitive toward my situation when I had to change my arrival dates unexpectedly and didn't charge my credit card till I had a confirmed date. The room, although not very large, was comfortable nevertheless, for a backpacker my main concern is where I sleep and feeling safe,and convenient to the local markets. If and when I return to Bocas, I'd book again at Hotel Laguna!
