“Atmosphere, PLUS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2008

Bocas reminds me of Key West without all the people. I traveled to many of the hotels & resorts they have there. Garden of Eden was by far the nicest and cleanest atmosphere. The food was far more than I had expected, excellent cook! I love it there and would recommend it to anyone who wants alittle more than a cheap hotel. I will be back! Great job, great hosts! Thanks for everything, it was a great experience.

This is hands down one of the nicest places I have been to. Offering a tranquil lush setting with an island all to your own if booking at the right time. Food and cleanliness were top rated and the atmosphere inviting. Lucky to have found it.

We've been visiting the Bocas area for seven years & our 5-nights at the Garden of Eden was the best ever - no doubt!

So beautiful & inviting! The surrounding water & views are pristine.
The pool is sparkling clean & refreshing.

All the food was great tasting & very reasonably priced.
Order the fish dip at least once (we had it every day!).
Try a Dill-Thrill for a truly new drink experience.

Talking parrots & wonderful hosts - what more could we ask for!

PS - We miss you Malo.

This was the best week out of my month in Panama. The Garden of Eden is southern hospitality at its best. Good food and good company in enchanting surroundings. One can spend a day totally relaxing or exploring the waters and islands nearby. Some people even take the short boat ride into Bocas town. One word of warning. Don't plan to diet while you are there!
I could go back there tomorrow and the next day and the day after that as long as it is still run by Bob and Helena, hosts 'extraordinaire'.
