Charming hotel, built with a terrace over the water. Our room was functional and clean, but not fancy. AC worked well. The free breakfast is plentiful.. Happy Hour specials are tasty Something to note: Kitchen Staff throw compost right out the window from the kitchen into the bay. So there was a bunch of food waste swimming in the water....

We were not impressed with our experience here. Firstly, when we arrived, the rooms we had reserved were not the ones we were given. Secondly, the rooms were filthy. The maid may have changed the sheets but the doors, the floors, everything was filthy. We asked to speak to the manager on two different occasions but remarkably he was not...

A nice hotel close to everything in Bocas town, but in a quiet street. Beautiful deck to watch the sunset, eat breakfast and just relax! A small bar and free breakfast. Big rooms. Perfect if you wan't to stay in town.

We had a wonderful time while staying here. Close to town, groceries, super staff and Danny is a wonderful manager! Breakfast on the deck is unbeatable! Relaxing, clean and a great hang out for your time in Bocas! The one downfall is the trash. Most was from the neighbors and then we saw the kitchen staff throw fruit out the...

Wife and I lasted 3 days in Bocas Del Toro before fleeing back to Boquete. Besides Bocas being the largest trash dump in Panama this hotel offered sanity and security. Its the last building on the strip. Its not a Hilton but it IS a clean safe friendly spot to be. Breakfast is good free internet and laundry service for...

Olas is a funny place. It's hard to really describe it, because it's also in a funny town. So keep in mind, when I give Olas 3/5, it's based on the fact that it's in Bocas Town - that wouldn't be the case somewhere else. So let's start with the basics. Our "double room" was basically a double bed and...
