I loved this place. It was clean and off the main street so it was quiet. The woman who ran it was very sweet. The price was very affordable. The sunsets were amazing from the back deck, where you could also jump in the water. We could walk to any place in town.

For $30 a night, this is as good as it gets. Our room was dank and dark, ultimately, who's hanging out in their room in Bocas? The patio in the back overlooking the water will afford you one of the most amazing views of the sunset and place has a totally relaxed vibe all just a minute's walk or so... More

Very quiet hotel but close to the town. The terrace facing to the sea is a great place to relax. The owner sometimes appeared gruffly but she gave us some good advices on activities. The room was spacious and clean.

This is a locally owned small hotel with the back end including a deck extending back over the water. The back deck is a great place to hang out and watch the sun set. The hotel is set in a residential area off the main road which was a plus for us. Local kids played out front in the street.... More

Not in the center of town, but only 2 minutes away, this small family hotel is located in a more quiet area. The rooms are small, but adequate and most important: clean. They also have TV. The bathroom has hot water. From the patio at the back of the hotel you can jump right into the sea, lie in the... More

This was a very pleasant surprise in Bocas where hotels tend to be overpriced for the value they represent. The owner is a charming aging lady that overlooks this well managed little hotel on the waterfront. Very clean, confortable and hangers in the room! For mere 30 dollars a night with A/C, a pleasant patio on the waterfront to watch... More

These aren't the newest digs in town. What makes this place stand out is the location. If you are a morning person there is no better place to be in town than on the back porch right on the water. The sunrises are spectacular. I saw manta rays, needle fish and other sea creatures while sipping my morning coffee (which... More

Stayed here because all the other places under $50/night were booked. Turned out to be a decent place but would only only recommend as a plan B. Pros: friendly owner/staff, great view from the back porch Cons: away from the main strip (some might see this as a Pro), small bathroom

A nice little hotel protected from the crowds and noise of the main street of Bocas del Toro by a two-block walking distance. Clean, inexpensive, with a very friendly and helpful owner. Great option for budget travelers. The most memorable feature of this place was the back porch extending into the clear waters of the bay - a nice place... More

Rooms are tired and slightly musty but for $35 per night it is reasonable. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Nice balcony at back and felt safe. Starfish for breakfast is worth trying and the pedal bikes are a death trap so avoid unless you want a trip to the local hospital like we did! Hotel Bocas del Torro for... More
