day 1 - $145/nite in Bocas? Not even a bottled water to go with it?
day 2 - awoke to construction on the wall adjacent to our room and two men crawling over the railing to our balcony. Apparently installing security cameras was a high priority item at 8:30am.
day 3 - no running water for several hours, towels left on floor not refreshed.. Arranged for a boat tour - Paid 25% more than anyone else on the boat, was promised no more than 6 persons/boat - there were 13 (not including crew). also ate the food at the hotel restaurant - it's pretty mediocre.
day 4 - checkout - requested an additional half hour for late checkout - that will be $40 please - no exceptions.
On the plus side, the beer is cold, and the rooms are nice (as they should be for this price) and the owner was actually really nice and comp'd us a couple of drinks for the construction interruption. The staff was friendly as well.
