I made a last minute booking during the Panamanian "festive season", so hotels were very difficult to obtain after New Year's celebrations. The receptionist / owner (Jana) over the phone was able to accommodate me for the one night that I needed, so with little option, that's what I did. Turns out, it worked out great!
My sister and I arrived a bit early so our room was not yet ready. We received a warm greeting and they stored our luggage while we went to the beach. When we returned, our private room was ready. The room is very basic consisting of a double bed and a single bed. The window A/C unit cooled the room quite rapidly. The shower had good pressure and hot water. The free WiFi was great with a strong signal. There was no TV in the room, which for one night was OK.
The front balcony and common area in the back where the "kitchen" was located was very clean.
We had an early morning flight, so we didn't get a chance to enjoy the nice homemade breakfast we smelled on our way out.
The airport is only 3 blocks away, but they called a taxi for us which cost USD$2.
Bocas Town is VERY laid back attracting predominantly a bohemian, hippie, surfer, diver, backpacker crowd.
Overall a very nice experience!
