The beach was beautiful and within walking distance of two more beautiful beaches. Jungle atmosphere, including sloths and red frogs , was a highlight. Food was delicious!

bring cash. they will charge 5% for any card trans
Amazing beach. Nice property overall. Good restaurant on site. The only thing: you pay though It is not actually the payment. The property just put your money on hold. And then when you come they will charge again with 5% credit card processing fee. Whatever you pay by card at this property. Will be 5% extra. So take cash. But again. I had a very lovely experience. One of the best beaches in Bocas.

4/10 Fair

A poorly run hotel on a nice island
This hotel could not have been q bigger letdown. I don’t even know where to start. Oh, right; NO HOT WATER. That’s right, $330 a night but no hot water in the shower, even though I complained several times. What else? Reception closes at 4:30 and even until then it’s almost never staffed. Restaurant stops serving food before the advertised hours and you’re left with nothing to eat. When it’s open, they are always out of everything. Service is terrible, especially the single mom who leaves her crying baby between the tables and goes out of her way to avoid customers and be rude to everybody - Ana I think her name is. The wall from the pier is a real hike - not fun when carrying suitcases. Want to hop over to Bocas? Good luck with that - you’re on your own and getting back at dark is basically impossible. Avoid this place. I recommend Bambuda lodge which was a thousand times nicer and half the price
