"Beautiful location and a place to remember."
We enjoyed two nights here in April. We had been staying in Bocas Town for a few days and had to leave our waterfront accommodation there via taxi to get to another dock for the boat to Punta Caracol (we had thought we would have got a boat from one place to the next). But, all good, it took about 30 minutes all up. It was exactly as we expected, the reviews and photos are quite accurate. We have stayed in the Maldives, and it was nothing like the luxury and beauty there (which is really hard to beat but also ridiculously expensive). But, Punta Caracol was quirky and cool and really nice to chill for a couple of days if you like to relax. We stayed in a Luna Suite which was nice. I thought it was nicer than the online photos. The view was really pretty. The food was really good. I can be a bit fussy but there were enough choices in the included menu to keep me happy. And 2 of the 3 courses of food was way enough for us- the servings are huge! We would joke with neighbouring tables if anyone wanted some food! The staff were a bit mixed. Some were absolutely and incredibly amazing (wish I remembered their names)! And some were not good at all. There was an included trip to Star Fish Beach. I had no idea what this meant, but it is actually just a boat transfer to/from (about 10 minutes in a boat each way). But they provided beach towels for this, and we really enjoyed our trip to this beach - the time allocation there was perfect. There are bars and food there etc - you can buy fresh lobster which they will cook for you. In terms of the accomodation...with no air conditioning, it was really hot. Our fan upstairs didn't seem to work (maybe on backwards setting?) so on the second night we both slept downstairs which was much better and the fan worked. The bathroom was ok - we couldn't get the shower hot at all (warm at best) but since the weather was so warm this was ok. It is time for some maintenance though as the property is showing its age. Especially the walkways. There are solar lights on the walkways near the restaurant but if your cabin is one of the further ones then the lights no longer work so you need a torch (or use the light on your phone). The towels were good quality. There is only 12 volt power in the rooms which we thought was fine. There was enough light to do what you needed to do (even read before bed). The wifi strength at the restaurant was really good actually and there were plenty of spaces there to charge your devices. This was not a problem at all. As we had already stayed in Bocas Town just before (and had done tours from there), we had no need to get a transfer back during our stay so cannot comment on that. Warning** One thing we were surprised about that the place does market itself as a bit "honeymooney". When we arrived, we had 8 people partying in the suite next door. That is, really loud music. We did try to cope but the villas are REALLY close together so I rarely do this, but I did go to reception to complain. To their credit, the staff spoke to them, and they did quieten down. But there were a lot of families there too with children. They were just having fun and were not offensive, but something to be aware of if you want a honeymoon experience. Would we recommend? Yes, definitely. All up, one of those special places to remember. (If it is peaceful which depends a lot on your neighbours).
"Mini honeymoon after getting married in Costa Rica"
A fun little resort that was a great break from the hustle and bustle of our wedding week. This is the best deal for the money to experience an on water hut vacation. The location is bueatiful. We stayed 2 nights and it was perfect. Not much to do but swim, snorkel, kayak, eat and drink unless you venture away from the resort which will require a water shuttle. Breakfast and dinner were included and were very good. The staff, though a slight language barrier with some of employees, were very accommodating.
"Maldives Dreams on a Panama Budget!"
If I could keep this place a secret, I would. But, I loved this place so much, I want to share it with the world. First off, I am NOT a fan of resorts. As a mostly solo budget traveler, I am appalled by the expensive rates and add on costs to these kinds of places (who usually cater to couples and families). However, this place has converted me. The over the water bungalow sold me. I've always wanted to experience such luxury on a budget and this place has made my dreams come true! The lodge was clean, comfortable and just super cute. It had all I needed - comfortable bed with a mosquito net, clean bathroom, lounge chairs outside, 2 small sofas inside, a hammock..and a DOCK for my own personal use. The waters were so clear and calm. I enjoyed swimming, floating, snorkeling and kayaking for the days I was there. The inclusive food was also a hit for me - breakfast, afternoon snack, and dinner. And, they even give you options on the dishes. The food was super good too, especially the seafood. They also offer the following: free pick-up to-from the airport and boat ride to Starfish Beach. If you do not pick this place, you are seriously missing out.
"Great Setting For Relaxed Vacation"
We chose the Punta Carocol Lodge / Resort for its setting with rooms over the water. The rooms were adorable with thatched roofs, spacious living space downstairs and the bedroom on a second floor. The lodge is ecologically themed with solar power and other ecological initiatives. The lodge picked us up at the Bocas Town airport and took us via water taxi to the resort. The hotel is only accessible via water taxi so if you wish to go to Bocas Town to visit you must take the 15 minute trip via the water taxi. The restaurant is in a large open air thatched building that has 360 degree views of the water. The food is delicious, locally sourced with many of the offerings being seafood. While there we visited Bocas Town for some shopping, sightseeing and eating. We had a delightful trip provided by the Lodge to Starfish Beach for snorkeling, shopping and eating and spent time snorkeling and kayaking off the deck of our room. It was a delightful trip and experience
"WONDERFUL, RELAXING, FRIENDLY"
A wonderful place to chill or snorkel. Climb down the ladder on your over water cabin and start your swim! Great value with the included three course dinner and breakfast. The small bar is fully stocked and they have a nice wine list. The staff is amazingly friendly and they meet you at the dock and check you in as they take your luggage to your cabin. We took along a spare storage battery to charge our phone and notebooks with. There are no outlets in your room, but you can go up to the bar area and charge those things. The internet is strong enough that I watched NETFLIX on my phone. You have a 3 choices for dinner for all three courses. Usually a fish or pasta or meat dish. On our 2 night stay we had one night of food that was far better than another. That is not to say the food wasn't good-it just means that one night we had a meal that suited us better. Maybe other folks would be different. They furnish snorkel and kayak equipment and you will totally enjoy cruising the reefs and mangroves. Take plenty of insect repellent. We brought some and I failed to put it on. Very sorry that I didn't-I got severely bitten by something, but hey! You are in tropical Central America! Overall it is a great place and we will go back! Be sure to take care of the workers by leaving a generous tip in the lock box as you leave. They will prove to you that they deserved it!
