Peaceful retreat, yet close to town
Beautiful, Traditional Bocas architecture. Small B&B with a location across from a great swimable beach. More peaceful than downtown Bocas. Large comfy rooms with good A/c and good airflow if you prefer. Large relaxing veranda with comfy chairs. Should have stayed several days! Only $1 per person when you flag down taxi out front to get to town. Owners are caring folk who make sure you're welcomed and even if our flight was gruesomely early, they provided coffee & yogurt with granola & fruit. Hope to return for a longer stay.

10/10 Exceptional

The property is a spacious old-style tropical plantation house, with wide, hardwood floor verandas overlooking the sea. Outside each room are a hammock and two Adirondack chairs overlooking the bay. Everything is clean and lovely. We had a kingsized four-poster bed, and a very large lockable cabinet to keep valuables in. It's a $1 cab ride from town, just far enough away to grant serenity. For my money, it's the best accommodation on the island!

10/10 Exceptional

The place is located in a quieter area of Bocas, which is only about 5 minute taxi ride away from the main street ($1/person). The rooms are spacious and clean, the view from the front of the hotel is the beach area, which has a private feel to it as well. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Caretaker Hasso was super helpful with providing info on local places to visit, how to get there and what to expect. Breakfast was excellent as well. Overall two thumbs up!

Our Best Lodging Experience in Panama
We stayed in a handful of places throughout Panama and the Sand Dollar B&B was by far our favorite. The location was great (steps away from a great beach and not in the heart of town), the rooms were clean and comfortable and the service was exceptional. The staff went out of their way to help us and accommodate our needs. Plus, Damaris makes the best breakfast! Our biggest regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

The property is directly across the road from a great swimming beach. The breakfast were fabulous and changed everyday. For $1 per person it is a quick taxi ride into town for tours, dinners and shopping. But the highlight are your hosts, Sharon, Mark and staff who will do ANYTHING to make your stay in Bocas memorable.

Wonderful hosts, arranged a super day going to different islands, willing to help with anything. Across from a lovely swimming beach, close to others, quiet but a short cab to town. Lovely breakfast. Hope to return!
