Positive things about this stay.
An aparthotel is not a hotel and will not offer hotel services like some of the reviews think they should. You are basically getting access to an apartment that is clean with basic services. You have a small kitchen with appliances, so you can go out to the supermarket which is just across the street. And purchase food to cook in your rented apartment. The Montecarlo is not on the main street of Bocas Town, so you will have to walk or get a cab, we opted for walking, which was nice.
The hotel staff is pleasant, and no, not everyone needs to know how to speak English to the negative comments regarding that issue. You are visiting a country with an official language of Spanish, not English. The common curtesy when visiting a nation is to learn a bit about their culture and the language spoken. I found the hotel staff to be accommodating, honest and very helpful at the hotel Montecarlo and should be praised accordingly.
Sleeping was a non-issue, the aparthotel was quiet, and no one made noise during our stay. There was no noise at night nor at day, but we were there on low season. I would stay at the aparthotel again in low season, the walks were nice, people at the hotel where nice and helpful.
The only negative thing we found at the aparthotel was the sofa in the living room. It had a lot of stains on it, so perhaps the cleaning staff could remove the stains with a steam vac.
