Cannot recommend Casa Acuario highly enough. My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights here in March and it was perfect. The room was large and spacious with a large balcony perfect for lazing away in the hammock looking at into the ocean. You can swim right off the casa into the sea which is great or there is a small...

We had a great stay at this hotel. Stayed in two different rooms, both beautifully decorated and made you feel like you're staying on a boat. We came here without reservations. The hotel is overlaying the water. There's a lot of boat-traffic in front of the hotel which makes it a little noisy. Only a meager continental breakfast is included...

Great choice if your heading to bocas. Great location. Close to town, close to breaks, bring ear plugs.

From the huge wooden balcony of our big big room on the first floor, we could clearly see the big star fish on the ground of the super-clear water. And all the colourful fish. The pelicans - two different kinds - were flying all around the house, a perfect place to watch these wonderful birds from the hammock on the...

ExPat here. And as and expat living in Costa Rica I must leave every 90 days to keep visa current. NO northern trips in the winter... Last year (2010) I found "paradise". I was told about the Hotel Casa Acuario on the Isla Carenero in Bocas del Toro. Very small hotel built out over warm clear water. No star rating!...

This place was quiet but still not far from the city, by boat. The room was nice and clean. The staff, all from the same family, was nice. I'd go back anytime!

We have stayed at Casa Acuario twice. I enjoyed the first time best but as the area has grown and changed there is more traffic out front and more of it (if not all) is motorized. My husband didn't notice the boat motors buzzing back and forth all day at all but for some reason it stood out to me....

Good value at $88.00 They offered a room for $70.00 the second night. Spacious, large, clean room with good air conditioning. Nice adjoining balcony over the water facing Bocas Town. Decent breakfast included prepared by Elia. Elia was nice host. Enjoyed talking to her. Make sure they have hot water before checking in. My only complaint.
