The cabins are beautifully done and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable and warm-hearted place. Lee and Jack are very nice, the breakfast is great and their tips of things to do excellent. On arrival the area looked a bit dirty but their place is spotless and really nicely done as per pictures.There were a few little things...

We stayed in the Dolphin cabin and loved every second of it. I know that this place is marketed as something not everyone would love, but I honestly don't understand how you couldn't enjoy this spectacular resort. We arrived early in the morning on the overnight bus from Panama City. We were exhausted, hungry, and in dire need of showers,...

One of the better places we stayed in Panama. We had the starfish cabin at the front over the water. At night the dock became alive with sealife. Very mesmerizing watching the rays, crabs and fish right from my balcony. Place was clean and beds comfy. Jack cooks a mean breakfast and him and Lee are amazing hosts, who employ...

this stay was the best part of our central america trip. we were a little worried initially, because the neighborhood doesn't look or smell very good. but once we got to the actual cabin, we loved the feel of the place, the views, and the location right on the water. it was also great talking to Jack and Lee over...

My girlfriend and I rented the "island suite" at koko resort, which really ended up being way more space than what we needed, but was a huge 2 bedroom two bathroom apartment style residence off of the footpath that ran the through neighborhood koko resort was in. It had a full kitchen, deck with hammock bench and reclining chair, and...

we had a good stay here with our family of 4. The owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. They were also very flexible. The houses are clean and spacious and on the water. The houses are on the Bay of Saigon which is a 20 minute walk from the town and, as they say on the website, it is in...

My family has taken 4 trips to Costa Rica & last year my son and I did a one day side trip to Bocas del Toro in Panama. On this trip in July we decided to send 2 nights in Panama and stayed at the Koko Resort. It surpassed all our expectations and even though we have stayed at some...

I had done a lot of research looking for a cabin on the water close to town and after much thought had chosen koko. We love it here. I read a lot of the reviews about being away from town and in a residential area. I can't laugh at that enough, you're in a foreign country, you are bound to...

We stayed in the Gecko cabin for 5 nights. It was quiet and peaceful. Other reviewers complained about the locals, but we had no problems with noise. The locals were all very friendly and we loved that all of the kids were playing outside, either soccer or fishing in the boats or playing in the water. The cabin was really...

My husband and I enjoyed a 4 night stay at Koko just a couple weeks ago. We read a lot of reviews on trip advisor before choosing Koko and were very happy with our choice. The cottages built out over the bay are unique and provide more than most places on the island... Coffee maker, full fridge, air conditioning, nice...
