Perfect spot on the water
We just got back from a 10 day stay at this inn that was amazing. The beds were comfortable, the view was awesome and the inn keepers(Elia and Edgar) were great. They made our stay extremely enjoyable. The water taxis are available almost anytime of day right off the dock in front and all the other islands are within 2 to 10 minutes from the inn by water taxi. The only thing I can think that would make it better is to have a ladder on the dock to get in and out of the water but no complaints here.

2/10 Poor

Casa Acuario
I think the administration of this place have no communication with Orbitz. the first thing they told me when I got there: "We didn't think you were coming" so they didn't have a room for me. I ended up in a horrible room that they use for storage or something. It was dirty and in really bad condition. Nothing like the pictures, no even in the outside. I was in a unfamiliar island and tired so I stayed for one night. The fleas were the worst thing, the place is full of small fleas that bite and there is no way to get rid of them. Breakfast was awful and still charged me full price.

Melhor lugar para se hospedar em bocas del toro
O quarto é perfeito, tudo em volta é mar. Água linda e cristalina por toda a parte. As instalações em si fazem você se sentir no melhor lugar do mundo! Tudo muito simples e bonito como deve ser uma casa na praia.
