Panama isn´t known for good customer service but this place definetly is the exeption. They have an office at the airport where they greet you with bottled water and a smile, they take you in an air conditioned van to board a 10 min boat ride to the hotel. Everyone is super kind and speak great english. The island is very green and has 2 beaches: a public beach where the restaurant is and a private one with a beverage service. We traveled with our 2 year old son and they prepared a special meal for him each time. The villas are comfortable and best of all have a private pool. There is also a small but well stocked market on island, we purchased ingredients to make our own breakfast since we rose pretty early in the morning. The hotel offers tours (there is an on island zip line) and trips to the islands. We enjoyed the beaches and pool so much we did not find the need to explore further, but they are easily booked. Overall a great experience! Would recommend for any Bocas vacation.

Luisa - thank your for your review! Most of our staff are native to the Bocas islands and don't have much (if any) background in tourism...our employees are naturally happy and warm. Thanks for coming and for your review.

I booked a 2 bedroom villa at this resort with Expedia. When we arrived we got a 5-bedroom villa with a small pool! My guess, they are rotating the villas that they are occupied even if you booked less. It was actually a shame that we only spent 2 nights there.
It was a nice spacious villa, cleaning was okay, not great. Towels and house smelled for the insect poison they spray to keep the bugs out. (It's apparently not harmful for humans but I do react with puffy eyes on it.) Thankfully they do not allow pets.
The grounds are very well taken care of. They provide a "taxi" to pick you up and bring you places on the resort grounds.
The view and the sounds of the animals in the jungle are amazing when you wake up in the morning!
The "private" Turtle Beach is taken care of and you can walk quite a bit. Next to it is the public Red Frog Beach, which is also nice.
The restaurant (inbetween those beaches) is nice, has good food, good (included) breakfast with eggs/pancakes and VERY FRIENDLY staff.

We went down with Adventure Hunt and had an amazing experience. The villas are amazing, we had a private pool, three bedrooms, and a view of the beach that was unreal. You have quick access to several restaurants, a mini-store, but still feel like you're in a remote, non-touristy location.

We stayed during a time of transition. The main reception was closed the spa was sometimes closed. the store had irregular hours and the main dock i guess was closed.

This was all due to road construction and construction of a new beach lounge.

The Villa we stayed in was excellent. it had everything we needed to make great dinners and breakfasts when we didn't want to go out. The view from our patio and pool deck was amazing. I spent every morning in the pool as the monkeys and birds jumped around in trees surrounding me!

The beach bar had excellent drinks and fantastic tacos. the bar staff was friendly and made a mean smoothie!

Turtle beach right next to the resort is out of a national geographic magazine. a small island perched offshore a few hundred yards with leaning palm trees driftwood and clean sand for as far as the eye can see. the guys at the beach shack had towels and provisions if needed and kept an eye on us while we snorkeled in pristine waters and coral reefs right off shore!

I didn't give the resort the best of the best review because of the construction. once that is done i'm sure this resort would be PERFECT!

This place is absolutely stunning and unreal! I stayed here with the adventure hunt team and it was a week that I literally will never forget! The villas...literally speechless, they are somewhere I would dream about staying! The beach is amazing and there's so much there to do! Staying here was a dream come true!
