“Lovely hosts in a quiet location”
Reviewed 14 March 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights in march in the suite.

On arrival we were shown our room, a nice suite with a balcony overlooking the water. Good sized room and bathroom.

Dinner was lovely. A BBQ of prawn skewers with chicken as an alternative. Kipp the owner cooked it himself and we spent the evening chatting to him and other guests. Very friendly and interesting people.

Breakfast lunch and dinners here are great and the help yourself drinks fridge is a nice touch

They arranged a good and reasonable priced tour of the bat caves and visit to indigenous tribe for us which was only 25 usd each. We spent our other day just relaxing and using the free kayaks

I would thoroughly recommend garden of eden to anyone looking for a quiet friendly place. Price was a little high when compared with others locally but otherwise a top place to stay

Garden of Eden was just as amazing as we had imagined after reading the reviews here on TripAdvisor. Kip the owner is just an amazing host! The rooms are beautiful (three in total!), the pool is nice and the food is delicious!! A kayak trip to Redfrog is the perfect activity... Enjoy the stillness of the Island, hopefully meet interesting guests and don't forget the playroom with pool table and dart!

The island is absolutely beautiful, and the views are out of this world! We stayed 4 nights in a poolside room! We really enjoyed our stay except the last day it poured rain and was very cold!! We also had rain all the 4 days we were there!! But we kept busy enjoying Kips specialty drinks, taking pics of the beautiful vegetation and of course the delicious meals that were prepared!! Melissa (sorry if I have spelled her name wrong) who works there cooking & cleaning, also was very friendly and kept us busy showing us things around the island (frogs, spiders, etc) As well there was a Volunteer girl from Canada, Sidney who we shared lots of conversation with! We went kayaking one day and to Red Frog Beach another day and totally enjoyed! The rooms have a beautiful balcony with a gorgeous view, and we even saw dolphins which was fascinating, as well there were tons of humming birds buzzing around which made for amazing photos! Some upgrading is needed in the bedding & towel department however which is why I have only given it 4*s! In fact the rooms need a full facelift! But having said that, we totally enjoyed our stay..It is not only an accommodation, but an experience, and Kip was a very good host who looked after us well without being intrusive! We met lovely people and had some very good meals & lots of laughs! We would definitely recommend anyone who loves nature & a laid back atmosphere & doesn't require a 5* accommodation to come check the Garden of Eden out, u will be happy you did Also can't forget the beautiful dog Zeus, who we really grew to like, he added that extra something special to our stay!! Thanks for everything and those drinks of the day were so good !

If you want a place for two to just relax, then go to Garden of Eden.
Sit on your balcony or rest in a hammock, in the middle of tropical plants, watch the kolibris, listen to the birds, watch fish from the dock, even dolphins show up. Or work out in a kayak.
Food is excellent and there's always a cold drink in the freezer.

Instead of palm trees, it's mangroves, instead of sand, it's a rocky island, but nevertheless, a great place to be. Many thanks to Kipp and his team.

My wife and I stayed at the Garden of Eden Jan. 25th thru the 27th. The grounds are immaculate with lots of flowers and plants. Kipp and his staff are very nice and helpful. This is a great place to stay if you want some quiet time. Kayaking to Red Frog Beach is a must do. There is no need to go anywhere else for food and drink, Kipp has you covered!

Room Tip: There are (2) rooms alongside the pool or a room down a path a bit more private. All have private re...

Bocas del Toro islands are a great place to visit and The Garden od Eden is the right place to go... Resort only have 3 rooms and we got all of them. We could decide, day by day, breakfast and dinner!!! Owners and staff always kind, great persons! Incredible view from the room, sunshine and sunset are unforgettable there!! Easy to get to the "city" with taxi boat. We really have so good memories there....
