Marcela and her boyfriend who are managing the hotel are very nice people and did the best they could do. Everything else was a horrible: The floor was dirty, many death insects on the floor, full of spider nets. My wife has allergy to dust and we where forced to leave after one night. We are both experienced travellers but...

The place is run by a...

We arrived at Free Spirit Inn on the last leg of our 2 week trip to Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. Our intention was to find somewhere relaxing on Bastimentos to enjoy the last 3 days. After a tough journey across the border and into Bocas we finally made it around 8pm, by which time it was pitch dark. We...

This is a wonderful place, I had an amazing time. Me and my friends are really happy about this experience. The cabins are really beautiful and they have a wonderful view to the bay and the nearest islands. The rooms are clean and the host(Marcela) took really good care of us. It seems that the thatch roof is new and...

Coming to Bocas Del Toro is one of a very good tip when you are visiting Panama! But staying in Bastimentos is a better way to understand the real living style of the Islands and local people! Then about your selected place, to stay in a B&B is a must like being in a small, natural, calm and unique like...

My husband and I decided to stay here based on the trip advisor reviews. At the last minute we had a change of plans and emailed Frank to see if we could arrange to cancel all or part of our reservation. When we hadn't heard back from him, we went to Bastimiento in person. The first time, we walked right...

I cannot explain how happy I was to arrive to the Free Spirit in on Bastimentos. Hidden away on the hill, the property is well beautifully well kept. You will find yourself surrounded by small huts filled with local Panamanian children and puppies, I would call the location far from touristy. The host, Frank, was incredibly helpful is suggesting restaurants...

We had a wonderful time staying in the Garden Glamping Hut. The weather wasn't in our favour for most of the trip, yet we still had such a great time just relaxing, enjoying the great breakfast provided by Frank, and exploring nearby Wizard Beach. The rain NEVER got inside the hut, and there were very few mosquitos. It really is...

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the "Free Spirit Inn" for one week. But this one week felt like an eternity for us - in a completely negative way! Calvin wasn't present, so I can' t say anything about him personally. But what I can say is: The "suite", where we stayed was a hole! I can't believe, how someone...
