2/10 Poor

I had a confirmed, non-refundable reservation for this property. The day before I was to arrive at the property, I get a notification saying that my reservation was cancelled, and instead it was rebooked for 3 days later. I couldn't believe that the resort and Expedia would do such a thing without my knowledge or consent. I wasn't even going to be in the area in 3 days, so for them to cancel a non-refundable, confirmed reservation and then willy-nilly rebook me for a night 3 days later without even asking me was appalling. Expedia should not allow its hotels to rebook guests at their own discretion, without the guest even knowing about it let alone agreeing to it. Just appalling. It ruined my vacation, since not only did I have to find another lodging for the night that they cancelled, I was stressed about them charging me for a non-refundable night that I didn't even book!

Quaint cabanas over the water. Great first time Bocas experience for the family. Restaurants within walking distance, swimmable beaches, sunrise out the back door.

10/10 Exceptional

Loved the owner Adriano and the over water bungalow experience. However due to our preference of crystal clear waters we were not comfortable jumping in off the deck when we saw a sting Ray under us. Also once you jump off you have no ladder or way to get back up so you would have to swim all the way to the beach to walk back to your condo. Loved the breakfast and water taxis noise did not bother us. Just not such a nice island or beaches like Red frog ( on Bastimentos) or we heard starfish beach ( on Isle colon) Enjoy it’s worth the cost and experience for a few nights

4/10 Fair

The property is a bit run down and could use some Reno’s. The concept was cute. We loved the deck off the back but there wasn’t any cushions for the wood lounger’s so it was pretty uncomfortable. The owner and his Dog are super nice.

Terrific 1st Time Stay in Bocas
This was my first visit to Bocas, so I don’t have the greatest barometer in comparing different places to stay in the area. Having just been to Costa Rica & Nicaragua in the weeks previous though, I’d say this was better than what I’d experienced in the neighboring countries. Staff were the nicest people and my little yellow cabin on the water for a week was magic !!

Location was amazing, right on the water. Easy to catch water taxi to any location. The only draw back is the water taxis travelled close to the location so there was some noise.

The convenience of being close to surf breaks and to the town of Bocas was perfect. The staff of Adriano and Angel were absolutely amazing and beyond friendly. Breakfast was included which was a nice surprise. I would absolutely stay here again
