We tried to book a unit in this resort, we agreed on a price, insisted to leave a deposit to ensure the unit. They said it wasn’t necessary and that the unit was gonna be there for us.
Once we finally got there, the owner doubled the price originally agreed, adding a lot of additional costs.
Not profesional at all. They take advantage of the cofactors that there are no other options around this area.
We decided not to stay there, and found better option.
Not recommended at all.

A esta persona no se le cotizo formalmente. Se tuvo una conversación bastante informal y se le estipulo que los precios y condiciones a regir serian las mismos del contrato del inquilino anterior. La persona que se presento a la recepción para formalizar el contrato de arrendamiento no fue la misma que converso inicialmente con nuestro administrador. El periodo de arrendamiento cambio de un mes, a una semana, con una cantidad de ocupantes que supera la capacidad del inmueble. Nunca el arrendatario pidió o leyó el contrato que se utiliza para este inmueble.

1. Location: located on top of the hills of Puerto Almirante with amazing views of the mountain and the ocean.

2. Room: Clean, spacious, quiet with good air condition. We stay in a two bedroom apartment with everything like home.

3. Service, the best. Mr. Romero (the owner) was a great host, upon arriving, he also provided free fruit plate for us, it is delicious.

4. Breakfast is average and free with great fresh fruit, and dinner is excellent with great value.

5. Parking, Free

6. Comments: This is an excellent place for one to two days stay before going to Isle Colon (Boca del Toro), or stay here for 1-2 weeks to enjoy the life with its beauty, quietness and great services Cesar is a graduate from New York City where I used to work and we have some in common. He loves his properties and work. It was fun to talk to him. We will recommend our friends, we also plan to come again to stay longer next time.

What's that great place to spend a unforgettable time or just an exotic family vacation!
Bocas Ridge Hotel & Residences located on top of the hills of Puerto Almirante with amazing views nearby clouds, this it' s the right location. Exclusive resort in Bocas del Toro province, Panama. The best holiday resort with high quality services: rooms, cleaning, food, pool, panorama, music, plants, peace, flower's smells, relaxation, general entertainment & ambience. We are enjoyed 8 days in June 2016, ..., a memory for a lifetime. Mr. Romero (the owner) was a great host and we loved staying in one of the most impressive panamanian location. We have received an excellent lesson of generosity, respect, enthusiasm, education, style, pleasure, quality ... from this unique man and this unique place. God bless You, Mr. Romero & thanks again for all !!! If we have the possibility, ..., we' ll returning back soon. We promise ! I definitely recommend to everyone! Enjoy !!!

Room tip: best views, suites are wonderful, services 5*, food 5*, amazing staff,

My family stayed for 4 days at Bocas Ridge. It is quite a drive from Changuinola, but Cesar sent the most wonderful taxi driver to pick us up at the airport. He was a terrific tour guide and stopped several times for my children to see the sloths along the road. He pulled over so they could see a boa constrictor and take photos. He was knowledgeable and ended up becoming a great friend. We even shared our last meal in Changuinola with him. We requested a 1 BR apartment, but Cesar upgraded us to a 2 BR. It was nicely furnished and the air conditioning was greatly appreciated by this gringo! My kids really enjoyed the pool. It was very quiet most of the time we were there. Everyone who works there goes above and beyond for the guests. My husband even found a cousin he had never met working at the front desk, which was very cool. My husband was very impressed with accommodations, as most places to stay near Almirante are less than desirable. The food was great. My children loved the fresh fruit at breakfast. The same taxi driver took us anywhere we needed to go and brought us back. I can't thank Cesar enough for providing us with this friendly driver! Cesar is thoughtful and truly wants everyone to have what they need. He even went out and bought me a hairdryer! He had great suggestions for tours. He arranged for us to go on a tour of the San San River to see the manatees. It was beautiful and very memorable. The best part was that we arrived just in time for 4 sea turtles to hatch. Our boys got to release them into the ocean. It was beautiful. My husband was reunited with a niece he had not seen in 15 or so years and Cesar allowed her and her friend to stay with us at the apartment. I would recommend Bocas Ridge to any traveler going anywhere close to Almirante or Changuinola.

Room tip: ask for an ocean view or balcony...you can see the ocean and Bocas Island, really pretty at night with all the lights
