Zeer mooie plek met geweldige eigenaren! Marcel en Carmen zijn zeer gastvrij en zorgen goed voor hun gasten. Marcel biedt vis tours aan en de vis wordt dezelfde avond opgegeten bij het diner. Soms zijn er zelfs grote groepen dolfijnen rondom de boot te zien. Carmen is heel erg zorgzaam en wil dat de gasten het beste en mooiste van de omgeving zien. Ze heeft voor ons een tour geregeld naar Zapatilla, zeker de moeite waard! De kamers zijn erg mooi. De “jungle kamer” biedt een geweldig uitzicht over de baai. Ik zou deze plek zeker aanraden!

I would really recommend this place. Carmen is such a nice woman who is really taking care of her guests. Marcel is also really nice. Much space to relax and also to do some tours. We saw dolphins and other nice fish. Carmen cooks by herself and the food is better dan many restaurants. Very nice! We had lot's of fun with other guests. Carmen likes to feel people like home. Have fun and enjoy!!!

It is hard to say enough wonderful things about Carmen's. Carmen and Marcel are both so generous, kind, friendly and funny. They make glorious breakfasts as a part of your stay and great dinners for a small extra charge (worth every penny). When we got there Carmen asked our food preferences. I am gluten free and expected to just adapt, but Carmen would not hear of it. She made me fabulous gluten free pancakes and even bread for dinner. Life at Carmen's is like spending time with old friends: relaxed and happy! The rooms are great: the beds are soft, the mosquito netting stops potential four legged friends and the warm water in the morning is refreshing! The location is far enough away from Bocas to be quiet and close enough to be near everything. The area is beautiful! All total, fabulous and the perfect vacation spot.

Carmen's place verdient 5 sterren! Carmen en Marcel zijn de meest gastvrije mensen die wij hebben ontmoet. De service is fantastisch. Ze doen alles om hun gasten een mooie vakantie te bezorgen. Carmen geeft graag tips over leuke activiteiten en leuke restaurantjes. En wil je een keer niet op pad, Carmen is een fantastische kok!! Voor slechts 15 dollar maakt ze een heerlijk gerecht. De locatie is perfect. Erg grappig is de vlag, die op de aanleigersteiger ligt. Deze kun je gebruiken als je een taxi (boot) wenst. De boot is er heel snel en binnen een paar minuutjes varen ben je in Bocas Town. Kosten 3 dollar. De kamers, bedden en sanitair zijn prima. Kortom een heerlijk verblijf!

The location on the seaside and with the jungle behind and around is spectacular. Carmen and Marcel make you feeling between friends. Food is delicious, you can enjoy dinner at a very reasonable price. Rooms are essentials, with comfortable beds and bathrooms. Good value for your money.
