Reviewed 27 July 2017 via mobile

Hotel is pretty standard, rooms have a balcony which makes it nice and clean service goes in every day, the view of the sea is cool and peaceful, its close to everything and makes it easier to go around the islands, we stayed for 3 nights and it was AOK, breakfast included and a mini fridge in the room, plus the AC and private bathroom.. if you stay on the west side of the hotel you will hear the music at the close Clubs at night.

If you can pay a little more, do it. If you are the kind of traveler that doesn't mind staying in a Hostel type hotel then this "hotel" will fit the bill. No phone in room, no hangers in closet, hot water fixture in shower will scald you, had to leave it running to rush down two flights of stairs (remember, no phone)to have front desk come up and try and turn it off. Their fix was to turn off the hot water heaters to the room. Did I mention no elevators, so if your older or have bad knees it will be difficult. No coffee maker in room, no ice machine, no cups. Breakfast is included, but not very good. I will say the room seemed to be clean but bed was not very comfortable.

Many thanks for your review. Yes we don't have an elevator for the 3 story building, this is normal in the area. Yes we don't have a phone in the room. But as for the rest of your comments I am a little confused - so you opened the hot water tap in the shower and left it till it got so hot that nobody could get in there to turn it off, and yes we did then turn off the hot water system to access the shower. The use of a shower we do not normally need to explain to our guests. The breakfast it fabulous and we have the best quality beds. And yes please do come stay with us because we are a very nice hotel!

Great rooms at Bocas Paradise hotel. Rooms are big and the bed even bigger. Breakfast every morning is more than enough. Sitting on the waterfront eating breakfast is great. Reception is very friendly and hotel staff very helpful. Will definately be back!!

Nothing wrong with this place, don't expect luxury but it works! Weather was so so when we were there so lot's of bar hopping all within walking distance, room was clean but basic, club next door can be loud but with a few drinks it will put you to sleep. The last day they opened up the beach club that was nice 5 minutes free boat ride, food and drinks were good, they have beach bed for an extra charge, nothing was mentioned so I negotiated , they should tell guest upfront. 10 minutes walk to the airport, pretty much all restaurants are walking distance.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the club next door if you are a light sleeper

After reading previous reviews, I was a little unsure what to expect but Bocas Paradise was an absolute gem, as were the staff and accessibility to activities. This was our first time to Bocas Del Toro, and so our first time to this hotel. Not sure how, but we ended up in a third floor room overlooking the bay, with a wrap around balcony. Beautiful. Sunrise every morning. 30 second walk to catch the water taxi to any of the surrounding islands and beaches. Breakfast was included. Fresh fruit and eggs, toast, coffee. Simple but plentiful. The town is awesome and the hotel is in the middle of all the action. It can be loud at night so you might need some earplugs, which are available at the desk, but the night life is part of the island ambiance. We talked with one of the owners, Dylan, regularly and he was a first rate host. I have to admit that I have no idea what any of of the negative reviews were about. Staying at Bocas Paradise was truly an exceptional experience. Oh, I should mention they recently added a beach club across the waterway and hotel guests can take a water taxi there for food and drink. Water taxis are plentiful and inexpensive. We are coming back here! Soon. Picture is morning coffee on the room balcony.
