Comfortable and clean and the second floor veranda is the best place to see what comes off the first ferries while having breakfast and a good view of main street...Maybe a little expensive but rooms are limited in Bocas Town

Had a great stay Here for three nights while Exploring Panama. The hotel is in a beautiful historic building that has been nicely refurbished. Breakfast though not huge was good and I never left wanting more (great Coffee!). Eating breakfast on the balcony was a treat watching the town wake up. Our room was in the back of the hotel,...

I'm so torn on what stars to give my stay. Charming older hotel, nice staff, simple breakfast, clean room. We stayed there for four nights. We picked this hotel because it is at the end of town and assumed would be quiet. Starting at about 11:00 at night until 4:30 in the morning the bar across the street was loud!...

I left medication in my room by accident and they sent it by air cargo to my next destination. When I asked what I owed they said it was a pleasure to serve me! The hotel had nice large rooms and a great location. Clean but small bathrooms. It's on the Main Street but at one end and so is...

This is the only Panamanian owned hotel in Bocas! The hotel was nice and the room was comfortable. The price though was expensive for what was offered. While breakfast was included there was no fridge in the room and no mini soap and shampoos were offered. The staff also was not overly friendly. Not worth the price for an average...

Staying here for 3 nights on my way through to Panama City. It feels more like a home than a hotel. Very clean, proper hot showers and a super comfy bed! It is really nice to chill on the upstairs porch and also enjoy breakfast with a cool ocean breeze! I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Gran Bahia is a very nice place. It's quiet, beds are huge and very comfortable. It's extremely clean and we'll run and the breakfast is adequate too. Location is perfect and the view is lovely. The rooms are big too!

I have stayed at this hotel before (but over 10 years ago). I stayed here with my bf and some friends for what is called "Dias Patrios" here in Panama. We were picked up at the airport and taken to the hotel (though it is not that far, and one can walk without a problem). The staff at the hotel...

We spent two nights at this very cute hotel located right on the main street of Boca town. Everything is at walking distance. There is a very nice terrace overlooking the bay where breakfast is usually served. Rooms are wide and comfortable and the owners Darla and Tito will help you out with anything you might need!

We had a very nice stay at Bahia Hotel! I loved the big terrace upstairs with a view over the ocean. The hotel is situated near restaurants, bars, and the best supermarket of the lovely island of Isla Colon. Rooms are nice and clean, with a very comfortable bed, AC working perfectly, clean bathrooms. The staff was very helpful and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It is located at the Southern tip of Third (Main) Street, in a majestic antique wooden building, that has already celebrated its hundredth anniversary and is still standing firm despite the ravages of time and the destructive earthquakes of 1917 and 1991. Built in 1905, it is considered one of the oldest buildings in the area. We offer the 18 most spacious and comfortable rooms, all of them with A/C, WI-Fi connection, Cable TV, safety boxes and private bathroom with hot shower. ... more   less

“Do not expect to sleep from 10 till 330 if La Iguana is open Do not take room 210 even though it is nice. It is only a few hundred feet fro the bar and it is on the street. The AC in room 203 was very loud.”
