We stayed here for three nights. We had a great stay here, José and Maira are great hosts. Jose immdiatly showed us his personal pictures of the nice locations around bocas, and joined us for a beautiful trip around the islands. I agree with the other review that the rooms are in need of an upgrade. Great location on one...

This was the most unique and relaxing place I stayed on my Costa Rica/Panama trip. I could sit in the common areas for hours on end and feel so content. I guess part of that is the feeling of being practically surrounded by water. The owners went above and beyond in providing personalized service and are just very nice people....

I agree with the reviews that the owners are very nice. However, the hotel is in need of upgrades. Our four people room was small, dark and with a small window facing waste containers. Based on satellite images we expected being able to walk on Carenero island but the place was locked up and we were discouraged from walking. Only...

I had an amazing experience at Hotel Oasis. I stayed for 11 days and José and Maira are amazing hosts and really make you feel like you´re part of a family. The rooms are clean, there is great air-conditioning, hot water and wi-fi. I chose to stay here because it´s away from the bustle and partying of Isla Colón, but...

Great for couples or friends travelling together. The rooms are very large with great air conditioning. The bar overlooking the water is very chilled. Jose and Maira are wonderful hosts and Jose's paella must not be missed. Highly recommend for somewhere that you can both access, or retreat from, the young nightlife of Bocas.

Boquete, Panama
Reviewed 21 June 2013

very good value, convenient, and the owners really aim to please. Away from the noise but close enough should you want to get to the town (about 1 minute via water taxi) The next time I go to Bocas I certainly will make this my number 1 place to stay. A pleasant place to stay.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Oasis for 5 nights in May and had the best time! The hotel is located in a great location, on a quieter island in Bocas right out over the water, but still only a 2 minute (and $1) water taxi ride away from the main island, Isla Colon. Some of the bars on...

“All rooms are clean and quiet but the upstairs room is bigger and has 2 balconies so you can look out over the water.”

“There's only one room with a balcony. It's also the biggest room, and a bit more expensive. The room also faces Colon, so you may hear a bit of music from local bars and water taxis. The balcony door blocked the majority of the sound.”

“The only way to get to and from is by water taxi from Bocas Town. But no worries, It's very quick and easy. I was a bit disappointed that it seemed impossible to get off the premises by foot to explore Isla Carenaro, However, tours are organized from the hotel to many wonderful sites/activities.”
