We spent a week at Popa and were so pleased that we found it. Beautiful beach and pool and the island seems so remote. The owners Vince and Rosey and all of the staff did everything possible to make sure our stay was perfect. The meals were incredible - including bison one night and lobster on another. There are so many activities in the club room and beach gear for the ocean. My personal favorite was the lounge chair on the beach under the palm trees. Many thanks to Popa for a great vacation!

It was a genuine pleasure to host the two of you for your week of relaxation and fun, and we really appreciate the feedback. It was a special treat to be able to offer our home-grown (in Canada) bison tenderloin, and we are very happy that you enjoyed it.

Hoping to see you again,

Vince and Rosie, and all of us here in Paradise

We spent five fabulous days at the Popa Paradise resort in Bocas del Toro Panamá. We attended friends wedding. The staff and owners did an amazing job at making this an unforgettable and enjoyable event. I can't speak highly enough of the care and attention we received from the owners and staff. I recommend it highly without reservation.

My wife, one of our daughters and I spent one week in Popa Paradise. We stayed at the luxury suite and took the all-inclusive option. Our objective was to truly rest and disconnect - After our stay at Popa Paradise we can't think of a better place for it. The resort combines outstanding features that made our stay unique: a warm and personalized behavior from the owners and the staff, an isolated, beautiful and natural location, clean and pleasant facilities, excellent local cuisine and attractive visits (we particularly enjoyed the one to a chocolate factory). A memorable Experience.

We were very pleased to host this family for some true Rest and Relaxation... the Luxury Suite is probably the best room for this purpose, set aside a short distance from the rest of the hotel, with a cooling breeze and amazing sea views on three sides. When our offerings align exactly with what our guests are looking for, life is good!

Hoping to see you again some time - Vince and Rosie

We had the chance to stay at Popa Paradise for 2 weeks as volunteers to, mainly, help the staff and owners with hosting a wedding. We had an absolutely wonderful time at Popa: the hotel is beautiful, the beaches are amazing, and the owners and the staff is kind and caring to all customers. We felt as family there and we really hope coming back one day ! Volunteer or customer, we highly recommend this hotel, expect to be..literally in paradise during your stay !

Room Tip: casita 10, the lodge or the penthouse ... there are all fabulous

Thank you so much for staying with us for awhile, and especially for pitching in during the wedding - it was a lot of work for the whole team here, including yourselves, but so satisfying when everything came off "without a hitch"!

Please stay in touch and come see us again some time.

Cheers - Vince and Rosie

A truely unforgettable experience in a top class resort. This resort had everything you could ask for: beautiful white sandy beach, fabulous swimming conditions, free use of kayaks, paddle boards etc, gorgeous big rooms overlooking the beach, a delightful pool (and pool bar ) delicious food and cocktails and above all fantastic helpful and welcoming staff. Rosie and Vince (the owners) can not do enough to ensure your stay is everything it should be. In my view one of the best places to stay in Bocas.

Room Tip: We loved the junior suite but the beachside cabanas are also very popular. We recommend going for the fulñ-board option. It's well worth the extra. Make sure you book early in high season so you are not disappointed.
