The best thing about staying in this hotel is the warm, welcoming staff. Every day of my stay, my friends and I were greeted with a smile. The hotel is very pretty and close to many cafés and restaurants. Due to covid, you need to request cleaning but when we did they left the room impeccably clean just like the day we arrived. The hotel is also close to multiple boat taxis. I will definitely return!

Hotel's Favourite
This was my first visit to Bocas, Isla Colon! Hotel Bocas del Toro felt warm and inviting from the minute I stepped into the lobby. The service by the staff at the reception was with a smile. The owner Carla was always present to guide or answer any questions that needed clarification. The first stay I met up with friends and we were four in a room, and felt enough space and privacy in the large room with four beds. The rooms were very clean, and they even had ear plugs in the rooms. Keep in mind Bocas is a town with all age groups, partying and talking loud after a few drinks. Yet I loved the location of the hotel. I returned after four days in the jungle and stayed another four nights. The hotel is central, with boat taxis, scuba diving, and coffee and vegan restaurants all a few minutes of walk. In conclusion I will say that the location decor, setup, cleanliness, and safety of this hotel is a five star for me.

My stay with a friend at Hotel Bocas del Toro last month for my birthday was a lovely treat. I live outer island in the BdT archipelago and usually travel plenty, but, with all the Covid-19 related travel restrictions, I have been taking myself on various mini 'staycations' in the island area. Hotel Bocas del Toro has a charming, old world, nautical vibe. Our room was comfortable and cozy with a gorgeous water view. The in-room organic coffee provided was certainly the right way to start the morning. The owner, Carla, and her staff were super accommodating with check in and out. Their safety protocols for Covid-19 will put any traveller at ease. I look forward to treating myself to another night at the hotel soon!

Dear Margaux, We appreciate your review of Hotel Bocas del Toro as a domestic destination even for resident islanders! Hotel Bocas del Toro with only eleven rooms is a boutique gem over the ocean, creating a cozy atmosphere for our guests no matter what room type they choose. Our commitment to Sustainability is not only with hiring local staff, but the organic coffee from an indigenous village, Silico Creek, in Bocas del Toro that you enjoyed on your balcony! The Team appreciates your kind comments. We look forward to your return away from home.

The hotel surprises: its dark polished woods reminiscent of the elegance of bygone eras. We loved the place. Cute. Romantic. Small. Our balcony faced the water and the air-conditioning was vercifully efficient. Centrally located, it's steps away from water taxis, shops, and restaurants. The staff is super helpful. We'll definitely return.
