We stayed in the starfish cabin for two nights in February and had a great time. We thought the cabin was fun to stay in; we loved jumping off the dock and sitting on the deck. We were prepared for the 'rustic-ness', and that, it was. But that's part of the fun. My only concern was that the AC wouldn't...

If you read Jack's "Must Read" before you book, I don't think you'll be disappointed. It was what we consider a cabin. We enjoyed Jack, Lee and Zoro. They had a lot of knowledge on things to do and breakfasts were great! We were there to scuba dive so didn't do much touring. We didn't have extreme termite issues like...

It's been awhile since we've been here but we plan on going back. We almost missed our flight back to Panama City and they arranged a kamikaze taxi driver that got us to the micro airport in record time, tires squealing the whole trip due to the speed. Owner makes a great breakfast and any scraps go in the water...

We only stayed for one night though we were planning on four. The hosts were able to help with information and activities. But the cabin was not clean when we arrived due to the overwhelming amount of termite dust. It was in the bed in the loft, the dresser on the first floor, on the stove (so we couldn't use...

5 stars are for the owners who go out of their way to be helpful, organizing snorkelling tours (recommended), taxis to and from the boats and airport etc. They are both American, so speaking English is no problem. A hearty breakfast is served in the nearby Bahia de Sol B and B (where they live). They are both very interesting...

We stayed for 2 nights on a 11 day trip in Panama. This was the most expensive place we stayed at, and I accordingly had high expectations. I was especially excited to have a house sitting on the water. The cabins are pretty huge, and the owners are super nice. But - there was a TON of termite dust. They...

As we approached this property after our taxi dropped us off, we were a little concerned about the area. It turned out to be a positive experience; our own cabin over water with a spectacular view, Jack&Lee, owners, were very helpful and provided an awesome breakfast and loads of travel tips. The resort seems a little rundown, but everything was...

Family with 2 teenagers. The houses build on the water are perfect site. The distance to downtown is not too far and the beach is really close.

Walking to your room at the Koko Resort is a fantastic experience each time you do it. The docks that lead out to each individual cottage make for a truly beautiful setting. Jack and Lee, who run this place, could not be sweeter. Jack cooks a delicious breakfast each day and they are so helpful with whatever you need. If...
