“September soirée ”
Reviewed 6 December 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Arrived in Bocas town on Saturday (late Sept) of the annual Feria del Mar- a large fair on the beach that brings in a lot of Panamanians and also shuts down a lot of gringo-owned establishments. This made our experience a little complicated. We had a hard time getting a taxi to Villa Paraiso but once we did, they knew exactly where to take us. (Right past Playa Tortuga resort before Big Creek on the right side) it was a shared ride part of the way, like uber pool, $2 pp.

Owner Steve was very welcoming when we arrived and showed us through the garage, to our room on the main floor of the main house.
We had a nice studio with the entire veranda and pool to ourselves, right on the ocean.
The room was big, comfortable and had most of the staples included- towels, toilet paper, dishes, cookware, coffee and even some salt/pepper/spices.

Our first plan was to rent a quad from Flying Pirates (15 min walk down the road) as our mode of transportation for the next 5 days. Just so happens they shut down due to the fair. Lucky for us Pirate Steve opened up just for us the get setup on a quad . Props to Flying Pirates!! This was a lifesaver as the taxis were really tough to get and the weather wasn't cooperating for the pool or beach. We took the quad to Starfish beach on Sunday and it was jam packed.(recommend going on a week day) The hike from the Bocas del drago was more rough than we expected and the only starfish we saw was one a boy caught. They go out to the deep water when the people come in. We took the $1.50/pp boat ride back to Boca del drago.

Monday a squall came in the the morning and it pretty much rained all day. We took the quad to la piscina on the flying pirates private trails. It was a very rough, wet and dirty ride. Lots of mud puddles, rough terrain, large roots, and tight passages. If you are an adventure seeker, this is for you!

Tuesday we took a private tour with Wes, right from the Villa Paraiso dock. We saw sloths at sloth island, did some great snorkeling, had fresh seafood for lunch, and hiked Zapatillas II to find a picturesque beach at the point.
On the the return we found a foursome of dolphins that we got very close to and Wes even got the dolphins to play in his wake- an unforgettable day!

Wednesday made it all the way to Christian's Beach- quite the adventure! Not for the faint of heart. Sunny and beautiful on the way out. Raining, thunder and lightening all the way back.

Did a couple dinners in town-Om for Indian- pretty good but pricey.
Captain Caribe- delicious and well worth it!
Had a lunch at The Pub- decent sandwiches but not cheap.
Couldn't go to El Ultimo Refugio or Guari Guari because they both shut down due to the fair.
Ordered two dinners from Chef Chris (ph # in Villa Paraiso info book) which were our favorite of all!
Shopped in town for yogurt, cereal, (Isla Colon) fruit, (Chinese S/M) and sandwich fixings (Super Gourmet).
The phone provided in the room was almost a necessity but another stop to get a phone card to load it up. Recommend downloading WhatsApp before you go and using that.
Steve and Angie were very accommodating when we needed anything. We did some laundry which was great but beware the water isn't always clear for doing whites.
Had great hosts and our own space when desired.

“Villa Paraiso is a slice of Bocas paradise!”
Reviewed 26 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed in the Villa Wiona suite and all in all, I'm very glad I found Angie's listing on TripAdvisor. Her home is beautiful! You can really see how much detail she and her husband Steve have put into every aspect of the house and grounds. The suite is very nicely appointed with a comfortable queen bed, plenty of storage space, and a spacious kitchen & sitting area. The property is located steps from a beautiful beach ideal for swimming, kayaking or just enjoying a little R&R. The most noteworthy aspect of Villa Paraiso though is Angie and Steve's hospitality. From their eagerness to accommodate any request to their personal recommendations on everything from great boating & ATV trips to different beaches around the island to local restaurants, Angie and Steve definitely go above and beyond to make your stay a memorable one! We will definitely be back to Villa Paraiso when we return to Bocas del Toro!

“A piece of paradise!”
Reviewed 23 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We spent an amazing week at this place. Without a doubt, that's the best location in Bocas, with the best beach to swim, free bicycles available, the room is big and the view is breath taking. If you go to Bocas, that's definitely the place to stay! Steve, Angie and the kids are super helpful at all times, all their tips were very useful. Make sure you take one day to go in a boat tour with Wes. He'll take you to some great adventures!

“Waterfront private pool with 2 casitas great for sharing with friends!”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The beach casitas were perfect for 2 couples as both casitas were mirror images of each other. The outside kitchen was handy and we spent a lot of time at the table there, however don't expect to be a gourmet chef as the facilities are limited.

The property is a quick ride into town. $2pp for a taxi. I would suggest a golf cart or rental to explore the rest of the island as we didn't get to see much beyond.

Private pool was a lot of fun. Security features are great and certainly felt safe on the property. Private beach was a big bonus for a quiet morning walk.

“No words that have not been said before>>>>”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

If you are planning a visit to Boca del Toro and are looking for the perfect place this is it! We are experienced travelers and always have that "I am not sure if we picked the right place" before we arrive. Forget it!!! This place is the best. We were getting married in Boca but had no idea where to stay, Still not sure if Steve and Angie were ready for hosting the best wedding ever, but our whole group had a blast. We took advantage of all the great opportunities available. Every request or question we had was responded to immediately. By the way Chef Chris was a life savor. He was on the main land and took a plane back to Boca because he heard we were in need of some special help. Steve made it happen. The casitas provide a great spot to get away from the fray in Bocas town but still only a few minutes away. The beach was great and the pool was a life savor. When we return to Boca del Toro we will be staying here if Steve and Angie will have us!!!!!
