La atención de Thomas fue excelente muy contentos con nuestra estadía

Close to all the action in Bocas Town
Pros: close to the action in Bocas Town; affordable Cons: Can be too close to the action in Bocas Town, especially on weekends with load music and fireworks shows at 2 am. Concrete floors transmit noise from adjacent rooms with ease. 20-something crowd can be very boisterous, especially if partaking to adult beverages on the weekend. It's much more a hostel with private rooms than a b&b.

Very laid back, friendly place
I really enjoyed my stay here. The manager was always very nice and made sure I was comfortable. They were very respectful with quiet time until 9 a.m. in the morning, which was nice. My bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. All in all, a great place for the price!

Very friendly Host. Great location! On a side street off the main road so 1min walk to the main area but able to get away from noise at night, highly recommend!

Perfect location, great amenities and value!
First of all, it is steps from the docks you will land at when arriving to Bocas Town. The amenities are amazing! Roof top patio to enjoy, a kitchen with shared fridges to make your own meals while staying in Bocas.. A nice dining area to chill with fellow travelers. And the rooms- spotless. Clean beds, clean sheets, clean towels, clean floors. One of the best we stayed in. The AC worked perfectly (for Canadians like us who need it). It was also very safe and the owner is such a great guy! We recommended this location to everyone.

B & B hotel
Our stay at the B & B Surfari was ok. The room was clean and the beds ok...mattresses a little too soft. The reason I said I would not recommend this place to a friend is for two reasons; the first is because the Surfari calls itself a B & B but food was not offered at all. No breakfast included or even available. Every B & B we have ever stayed in had breakfast included. The young lady who checked us in was very friendly and helpful and directed us to a really good place to eat for dinner and breakfast that was just down the street. The second reason was the smell of sewage that was almost overwhelming. I'm not sure exactly where it was coming from but it was nasty. It might not have been from the hotel but it would make it hard to recommend this place to a friend for those reasons. Also, we were overcharged for our room but the hotel and Expedia both worked hard to get it corrected so we appreciated that very much.

Great little place
The owners were incredibly kind. The breakfast that was included was great. I feel the price we paid was very fair. We had Wi-Fi in the room, as well as AC and hot showers. We really enjoyed our stay.

Truly a Magical B&B Experience
This is one of the better places I've ever experienced. There is a reason this place is always sold out. Jim and Charlene were extremely welcoming and accommodating. They went out of their way to ensure their guests were having a great time and genuinely appreciate having travelers visit their B&B. Breakfast is made custom for every guest and always contributed to a great start to my day. Jim and Charlene also give good recommendations for places to eat, tours to go on, and bars to visit in the evening. I enjoyed playing with the only Labradoodie on the island and local celebrity, Daisy. If your feeling high energy, Daisy will fetch the frisbee until your arm falls off! The location is directly behind the main street which gets away from the noise. I received a great night's sleep every night and the rooms were clean with great WIFI. As a solo traveler I really enjoyed the sense of community the two Canadian managers provide. Most early nights were spent having a couple of Balboa's discussing fun things about where everyone is from. The washer and dryer is free to use as well, which comes in handy when you find your clothes soaking wet after a late night of jumping in the ocean. This place is amazing and I HIGHLY recommend you book all your nights here. You won't regret it.
