We decided to spend an extra day in Bocas (after Playa Tortuga) and chose this place based on price and close to the water taxi we needed to catch early the next morning. Bathroom was a bit tight, but the shower was roomy. Great AC after a long hot day at Starfish Beach. Ate dinner downstairs and everyone in our...

So this is the type of hotel that's best booked on arrival when you can negotiate the rate (which they are very amenable to). It's right in the center of Bocas town, on the water. Most of the rooms don't face the main street, so they're pretty quiet. The rooms with balconies facing the water are more expensive and worth...

We spent 3 nights at Limbo in Jan.The hotel has great location in the center of Bocas town overlooking the sea. However, the service is rather poor and the staff not very friendly. On average you wait 1h to get the breakfast and the guys serving it do not look very happy doing this job. Our first room for 2...

Slept in the stardard room for two nights. Was staying at an other hotel before, but prefered this one for location and atmosphere. We have checked other sea-side hotels in Bocas, and from what I have seen, this one was the best value for money option in my opinion. Although 'down town' no problems with street-noise and conveniently close to...

I don't think i will stay here again, for the following reasons: -really poor service - I was basically stared and gawked at when I requested help for the room safe, and you need to allow an hour for breakfast - even though...

Haggle your butt off to get a great rate. Cause you're not going to get much out of this place, except for a decent room, with a very powerful air conditioner! The hotel is clean, the rooms quiet, but the patio, where you have breakfast smells like barf. No joke. It's pretty horrid. Additionally the butter and jam we were...

We asked to see the rooms at the hotel before deciding to stay and were shown a standard room, a city view room and an ocean view room. Far and away, the only one worth considering is the ocean view. The other rooms are cramped and drab with an incredibly musty and unpleasant smell. The ocean view, however, was nice...

We spent $55/per and that included a real breakfast. Service was always friendly and helpful at both the front desk and restaurant. The rooms are basic, but clean and quiet - even the A/C was quiet and the flat-screen TV worked. It's right down town without being on the main street, so the location worked out for us perfectly. Considering...

We did not stay at thsi hotel but ate in the restaurant in a large group. The location next to the sea is good and the food and service were acceptable. We cannot comment on the rooms or facilities
