El Limbo on the Sea Hotel
Ranked #14 of 20 Hotels in Isla Colon
Reviewed 7 February 2017

First day in Bocas walking around about 11:30, place next door didnt serve food till 12 so we came here to El Limbo.Got seated with great view of the water.ordered drinks and were served right up. ordered food but was out of the steak so wife had chicken which she said was very good. I had lunch special, cheese burger fries and a beer for $6. Was a good choice! also had Pina Colida ,you know one drink is never enuff!Service was good, place appeared clean so I'll go back. Also visited with some Canadians seated next to us ,so that is always fun to here that their dollar is worth less than the good ole American Greenback.

The room has an amazing sea view,
The service was very good; a very complete Bar with all sorts of cocktails; but the best of all was the Lobster I had for dinner, unforgetable experience.
It is a MUST when you are in Bocas as well as Bocas Bamboo and Paki Point!

Went here during our first week in Bocas and we will not be back. After walking from restaurant to restaurant looking for some open seating near the water this was the only available place (it seems we should have taken this as a warning sign rather than a sign of luck).

We ordered the stuffed chicken as well as the catch of the day. The chicken was dry and unseasoned, the bacon of which the chicken was wrapped was fatty and undercooked. The catch of the day was a whitefish and was ordered with the mango chutney. The fish came drenched in this overly sweet pineapple mango sauce that tasted similar to that of canned fruit cocktail.

Definitely not a good spot for food considering the high quality of ingredients found elsewhere on the island.

First time in my life, we were almost kicked out of a restaurant. We arrived at around 10pm, were welcome in the restaurant and we ordered a bottle of wine with 3 plates (2 of them was tuna con ginger and wasabi that was suggested in our guide and really nothing exceptional). At 11pm the waiter came to say that they were closed or we still had almost half of the bottle left. We suggested them to take the left of the bottle back and deduct from the price but no way... They said we can take the bottle away instead. Finally we managed to stay until 11h27 after paying the bill and hurrying to finish the bottle that we ordered with angry looks of the personnel. It is not the fault of the waiters but the boss. Very nicely decorated but a super bad management finally. And we came out of the restaurant we saw that actually the normal opening hour was until11h30pm. Never again!
