Big and fully equiped apartments with kitchen, tv, hot water, aircon. Pool. Mohamed was so great that he even organized for us baby cot (for free) since we stayed there with our 15 months son. He also keeped our bags while we went for 2 days to Costa Rica. If you have any special needs, make sure you contact him befere arival. And you can hear ocean, since it's on other side of the road. Close to local restaurant, brewery and some local pubs and stores.
A little bit away from the main town, but its only $1 per person taxi ride, or 20 minutes walking.
Nice Apartement Close to city (5min taxi) Quiet
It would be a long essay to list all the things we liked but one thing must be mentioned. Muhammed and Rosie. The hosts of the condos. If you experienced good service, you haven't until you are hosted by Muhammed and Rosie. Plus you are a walking distance from an exceptional culinary experience if you let yourself to visit .... Ask Muhammed.
The beach across the road. But I guess we all expect a five star resort beach forgetting that there is beauty in a pristine yet very real post-vulcanic (gray) sand.
There are not many places you can stay and feel like you were at home. This condominium was a great surprise to us in such a place like Bocas Del Toro. The condo was really very clean for panamanian standard, extremely quiet so you can get a very good sleep. All the amenities were there you would find at home. The bed was comfortable but a little bit narrow for two adults. The kitchen had everything you need to cook your own food. The AC was in every single room and working like a charm as well as quietly. The best part was we didn´t need it at all because it was so cool despite in the being in the southern caribbean. The balcony had an excelent garden view with plenty of palm trees with hummingbirds and many flowers. There is also a nice swimming pool and really only very few can be found in Bocas. The owner Muhammed was what makes the real difference - a warm and friendly welcome, excellent willingness to help and give you the best and most reliable information about the island and the surroundings. All of his information that were given were absolutey accurate and reliable. The location is perfect for people who are seeking a more quiet part of the island and not in town where all the action is. You would need to walk around 20-30 minutes to get to the town center or take a short taxi drive or a bus ride. Right next to the condo is the only gas station of the island and you can get some basic grocerries there. The owners leave a welcome drink in the fridge and is a perfect idea for all the tourists tired from the long trip. The beach is just across the street and you can hear the sea. The neighbours were silent and polite. All in all a perfect place to stay and we will sure return to this place. Thanks Muhammed and your wife for everything.
A little bit far away from all the hype of town for those that want to be in the center of the fun. Be careful not to let anything that could be mistakenly thrown to trash because the cleaning of the condo is very thorough and in my opinion a little bit too much. We had some plastic plates that we wanted to use again or some plastic bags for the beach and other stuff that were thrown away thinking it is trash even when it was placed to a position where one would not touch it and was not meant to be thrown away. For the staff I suggest not to touch things that you are not sure if to be thrown out or not and let personal belongings untouched and not moved to a different position. Nothing serious and better to see more cleaning rather than no cleaning but wisely.
Muhammed and rosy were so so lovely, friendly and helpful with everything. The location was a little out of town which suited us just fine, plus if you didn't want to walk its just a 60c cab ride in. There was still a grocery stores close by and it's on the beach for some nice walking/running. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook so good meals and the air conditioning was great. We were originally booked for 3, but stayed 5 nights. Although we didnt need it, there was daily maid service which is nice for an apartment. Highly recommended.
Hotel organizes free shuttle from the airport. Our hostess was very friendly and gave us a lot of good information. Apartment was spacious (with 2 bathrooms and rather big terrace) and nicely decorated.
We expected that the location is almost on the beach, but there is actually no nice beach nearby.
Mohammed and Rosie were absolutely amazing and helpful, very welcoming. This apartment may be small, but don’t be fooled! The kitchen was nice; the bedroom had enough space for all our belongings, and the living room was cozy. The location was perfect, close enough to town and the beautiful beaches. Tropical and peaceful. The price wasn’t too bad, especially when you have to factor in how expensive some restaurants were. I was able to read my book near the pool with no distractions or loud noises. Grabbing a Taxi was no problem what so ever. The only thing I would change about our extraordinary trip would be the hours of the laundry, other than that amazing! Brunon Chicago
The owner make the difference. His recommendation for diner and activities were excellent and he was very helpful for other request we occasionally had. Other than that the condos where clean and well maintained. Location is nice, a bit outside the city but close to few great restaurants and to the gas station, which makes it easy to buy supplies and catch a taxi to explore the island
occasionally some bad smell. For us the price was quite high as we were only three of us to split the 90USD/day but we where at the highest peak of the season and the condo could have fitted 6 of us. So can very well be a good value deal.
Great apartments, owner was very helpful and friendly.
We only met Rosy as Muhammed was away and she gave us a 2 bed apartment as the 1 bed ones by the pool were full. This one was fine but on the ground floor with the patio at the back so no view. I expect if you pay more you get a view. The pool was just a short walk away. Rosy is a very nice lady and very accommodating. The mattress on the bed was new but had no cover on it so it won't stay looking new for long! I saw Muhammed the day before we left and he kindly arranged for a taxi to the boat but we had to get another as it hadn't turned up by the time we booked it for. As it happened we had plenty of time for the boat but we didn't know that and didn't want to miss the shuttle to Costa Rica.
When we sat on the armchair and settee they were so soft that you felt that you were sitting on very hard wood. We sat on our 2 pillows each which provided the necessary padding!
Clean place, great beds, good service.
WiFi could be better.
The apartment was very clean and secure. The kitchen was fully equipped and everything was easy to find. The owner was very nice and helpful at all times. There is a convenience store really near by. It is nice and quiet at night. It's a fast and cheap taxi ride to downtown.
The neighborhood is a little run down, with lots of trash in the entrance. It is difficult to find the reception area because its in the second floor of an adjacent building. The pool was nice but the water was a bit murky. And the apartment was very nice although the couches in the living room were a bit small and not very comfortable.
Quiet surroundngs. Good swimminpool. Good facilities in the apartment.
Poor quality of wifi during some days. No water last day.
The owners were very friendly and helpful. Made arrangements for a tour the next day, gave tips about taxi's and other nice to know things about Bocas in general. I made a mistake in the booking, but they arranged an extra matras so we could sleep with 5 persons.
Nothing about the apartment. Bocas in general was way too commercial in our opinion and we were ripped of in several occasions. We liked Santa Catalina and San Blas a lot more.
At the Beach. Not the nicest but for a bath in the morning ok. Pool was closed but we got a bottle of wine from te owner because of the inconvenience. Friendly staff. Good prices for tours around Bocas.
What I liked best about the condo was the personal attention to detail afforded by Mohammed and Rosie the property managers. The condo was affordable, well located, clean although a bit dated, and very well maintained. We were afforded great privacy and access to the pool area which always quiet and also well maintained. I would return again to Bocas Del Toro and to Jardines del Vista Mer tomorrow time permitting. It was truly a very enjoyable visit. Both Rosie, and Mohammed went out of their way to provide us with information on the area as well as picking us up at the airport and arranging transportation back on our departure. Taxis were always available on the street located between the condo and ocean and the ride into town cost about sixty cents to a dollar per person depending on the mood of the cab driver. In either case it was no big deal and the ride took about 5 minutes.
There is nothing I would change.
We loved our apartment with the little fully equipped kitchen, a living room and bedroom and the small but nice bathroom. Rosy, the owner, is such a nice person, she really made an effort in explaining us all the things to do around Bocas and helping us arrange trips. The complex is a bit outside of the city, but right next to the only gasstation on Isla Colon, so there's taxis there every minute. A ride into town is about 2 minutes and costs 1 dollar per person (60 cents for locals). The pool is also very nice to take a dip and relax. Overall a perfect stay!!!
All the comforts of home with full kitchen & small store nearby. Location outside of Bocas Town away noise & traffic, but easy to catch taxi, ride bike, or walk to town. Near beach. Managers are very friendly & helpful.
Beach is not for swimming. Pool was closed for maintenance one day. Everything else was great.
The staff was very helpful, especially in planning time of our stay. The owner takes really great care of guests, so you can relax and have really good time! Everything was very clean and comfortable :)
The couple that own?/manage the units were very nice, very welcoming and helpful with things to do in the area and suggestions for restaurants. If you must have a kitchen this is a good choice. Bed was comfortable, linens were nice, some decorations but could have used more, beach towels provided, ample room in unit.
Didn't end up being as fond of the location as other reviewers, the unit we had was not as good as the pictures online, walls could have used some repainting and the couches were very uncomfortable. Kitchen was nice enough (granite counters but pans were in bad shape and no cutting board) but that didn't matter because we didn't end up using it mostly because the grocery stores in town were not so appealing, poor choices for fruits veggies and meats.Did not use the pool. We paid $70 per night + tax - to do it over I might have tried something cheaper in town and used the savings for a nice dinner but who knows how that might have gone.
The owner is very attentive, The 2 bedroom apartment suite with kitchen was perfect for the 3 of us. Being out of town is a quiet relief and taxis to town are at the most $4. Adjacent to the best restaurant. In Bocas.
One past review refers to trash & junk on the grounds. That is Panama! Actually the only place where there was no trash was on the grounds of this hotel.
2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Close to town. Manager spoke english. AC worked good. Hot water. Taxi is 60 cents per person into town.
Cooking equipment was very old and worn out. Mattresses and pillows very cheap. Bedding worn out. Walls need painted. Wanted cash-wouldn't take card or paypal(just the original deposit.) Lot of garbage near property.
Rosey was very nice and helpful. We enjoyed our stay.condo was clean and comfortable.our kids enjoyed the pool when we were not at the beach.Was nice to have a kitchen instead of having to eat out every meal.The housekeepers do a great job and are very friendly.
The grounds around the condo is full of trash and junk.If you dont have a car it can be pricey to get taxis all the time. 4 to 5 dollars in to town. If you want to go to the nicer beaches further away its 25 to 30 dollars in a taxi.
