Came here twice during our trip to Bocas. First time we rode our bikes out from the town; it was a troop, but well worth it. The second time we stopped in after riding through the ATV trails; the staff was ready with a hose for us to wash the mud off of our legs and feet. This is really... More

This is a great spot to hang out and spend time on bluff beach. The staff were really friendly and the food was very good. We loved the tree frogs and saw lots of great wildlife like hummingbirds and toucans while we had our drinks. If you're going to Bluff go here.

Really excellent pina coladas, delicious food and fantastic staff. We had a lovely afternoon relaxing in hammocks, walking on the beach, and having drinks by the pool before a delicious dinner. Our 1 year old son was welcomed very warmly and there were some great toys for him to play with - and the chef even prepared a separate little... More

We went here because we were at Bluff beach and it had stating raining like crazy. We asked for Margaritas (good) and Piña Colada (great). The food arrived 45 minutes later and it only got to the table after I told the waiter that we were leaving. The food was ok, but nothing to be crazy about. So, I'd rather... More

Rent Quads from Pirates and ride out here. This is a great place to get a drink, relax, or go for a body surf.

I toured the Bocas del Toro area for 4 weeks and lodged in Bocas Town most of this time. I hired a taxi for a half day to explore Colon Island by road. Bocas Town aka Bocas del Toro is on Colon Island. The highlight of the tour was Playa Bluff Beach Restaurant. Excellent food and drink in a phenomenal... More

Stopped for a drink, best margarita on the rocks I' ve had in Panama yet. Great vibe, and really nice bartender/owner. Super clean restrooms. Pool to use for $3.00, which is pretty dang reasonable. Did not get to eat there, but hoping to make it back .

Great service at this beach side getaway. If in Bocas at the right time go see the turtles on Bluff Beach and stop here to grab dinner and drinks before hand. They went out of their way to help book a tour for our group! Beautiful outdoor seating area, great atmosphere, food, and drinks!

Thank meritchie
