Lonely Planet review
Our favorite place to stay in Bocas town, this three-story waterfront inn has 11 spacious all-hardwood rooms that feature firm beds with luxuriant linens and a warm decor; some have seafront balconies. Perks include concierge service and amenities such as Silico Creek coffee produced by a Ngöbe-Buglé community. There’s a fun street-side bar and an excellent deck-side restaurant overlooking the harbor.
Owned and run by Carla from the US, Hotel Bocas del Toro is a member of APTSO, Panama's sustainable tourism alliance.
