      Hotel was okay

      Our room was very small but clean and it had a window that opened right over the water. Quite nice. The on-demand water heater kind of freaked me out - i had never seen one like it before. It worked more or less. Our room was quite noisy as it was across the hall from the supply room which had a sliding door that banged every time it was closed. The breakfast was a muffin and not a great muffin. The coffee was excellent though and you could buy really good smoothies. Smoking was allowed on the open air common area which could get kind of stinky. The manager (Ben) and Nada who worked the front desk during the day were great as were the cleaning staff. The other front desk staff though were very indifferent and not very helpful. I'm not sure I would stay here again.

      It was away from the middle of town so it was very quiet. The rooms were comfortable and at a good rate. It also has a nice back area, which is the open dining/bar right on the waterfront. There were regularly hummingbirds flying around which was nice. The staff were extremely helpful. The only drawback was that because it was away from the town it sometimes felt a little unsafe walking back at night.

      The rooms are clean (ours had a funky smell about it) and the hotel is standard. Request a room that is not on the ground floor if you want a quiet night.

      A great view and possibly heaven for everything else.
      They had excursions to offer that cost from 20USD to 40USD.
      The staff was friendly but for the price we paid they could have had a bigger included breakfast.

      Here the Ngobe people surrounde us in their kayucas,just to look at the boat and us.
      I learnt two words 'Naantora' , 'hello' and 'koi' , 'thankyou' , which were very useful when we went into the village and met people. fred and I went in the kayaks and went ashore near a house on stilts off the beach. A man introduced himself as 'Mario Moreles@ and proudly took us around the village. it was beautiful,with most ...

      ... scoped out the restaurants, and that one was deemed to have more of a selection. The food was pretty good, and once our tummies were full we drove back to the villa for a relaxing evening. Apparently the rainy season decided to show up early, as we all woke up to a pretty nasty tropical storm. This meant a lot of napping, and a lot of card playing. In the afternoon, we popped over to Colon so the guys could get set up for Scuba Diving, as well as to get ...

It was surprisingly really nice. We had roast chicken and the leaves of a local plant were sautéed like spinach and the root was boiled like potato. The boat trip back to Bocas was quite the experience...well for Michele and Jen it was! They got put in the last seats at the front of the boat (which is never ...
