#2 of 6 hotels in Boca Chica
2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Hotel Bocas Del Mar, in Boca Chica, is a boutique hotel with modern, luxury features. In a privileged oceanside location on the mainland, it is perfectly positioned for a completely relaxing vacation. In 2020 we were Top Hotel in Panama for Customer Service in the Travelers' Choice 'Best of the Best' awards. Our focus is on a friendly, warm welcome and attention to detail. We have large contemporary-style guest bungalows that are set in tropical gardens right alongside the glistening blue water of the Gulf of Chiriqui. Open your drapes each morning and the Pacific Ocean is there to greet you! There's a good-quality restaurant & bar on site and we have not one but TWO stunning infinity-style pools to bathe in. We have our own dock to head to local beaches via water taxi or excursion boat - we are opposite the beautiful islands of the Gulf of Chiriqui and have a full ocean and land trip program. Just 45 minutes by car from David city (towards Panama City) and 90 minutes from Boquete.

We stayed for 4 nights in June of 2021 (COVID timeframe). It could not have been better. Our trip was a 19 day adventure in Panama and Aruba. We stayed at the JW Marriott in Panama City, Hotel Panamonte in Boquete, and Ritz Carlton in Aruba. Hotel Bocas Del Mar was my surprise favorite. It is owned by Diego, a great Belgian guy who speaks perfect English and was quite charming. The entire team here was awesome, especially Jorge and Chris at the restaurant and the lovely reception team. We stayed in room #15 and the view was fantastic and the room huge and clean. AWESOME Ac unit. Beautiful swimming pools. I loved the beach hopping tour we did. Ours ended up being private as nobody else signed up. The islands in the bay are just beautiful and we were alone at two beaches. I guess there is SOME upside to COVID! Anyhow, this is a great area--so peaceful and beautiful and safe and clean. It was also a great value. I wish them great success!

Wow! What a great resort this is! The setting with beautiful views of sailboats in the bay and the gorgeous birds and foliage in the garden and the archipelago islands in the distance are all magical. The service was especially outstanding and personal. The food and drinks were all fresh and delicious. The place was spotless and we had views of the garden and the ocean from our room and from our bathtub! The Internet connection was fantastic. There are boat tours available in the morning and at sunset. There are two beautiful swimming pools. Best of all,the BED was soooo amazing... it was like sleeping on a cloud! The best bed ever in a long lifetime of hotel beds! I want to give a special shout out to Marcel, the assistant manager who is so friendly and helpful and also to Jorge one of our excellent servers! Go here…in the USA, a similar resort would be at least double in cost. It it is well worth it and will not disappoint!

The only thing that did not look good here are the upkeep of the pools (moulds on the crevasses), garden that needs to accommodate more guests who wish to lounge in there. Apart from that, it was perfect, nearly.
