"Great place to relax and enjoy the nature around."
This hotel is set up in a beautiful golf off the Pacific shore. Count an hour to reach it from David airport (you can see a nice waterfall on the way). The location is remote and this is a place recommended for you if you look for seclusion and relax. Donâ€™t expect parties on the beach here or loud night life but if you want a tranquil place in a beautiful natural set you will not regret coming. I want to start the review saying that this property`s key to success really is its great management. I have rarely seen such involved and dedicated team of managers. They are always present, taking time to check on each customer, adapting to their needs, recommending activities and overall really making you feel welcomed. It`s about their own attitude but I have observed also how they organized their personnel and this makes a huge positive difference in the final service you get. We arrived earlier then the check in time due to our early flight and we were nicely surprised with a welcome coffee and juice and we could see they really made all efforts to have a room quickly ready while they tried to fill in the time with presenting the property and the options we could have in terms of enjoying the time in the region. You also have access to the pools so you can just change and take some time to relax while waiting. Back to the property itself the rooms are in fact individual bungalows, each facing the ocean so practically you have a view to the gardens and the ocean from each one of them. The bungalows are of a geometric design, all white so some people might consider them too plain for tropics but I believe is more about the soundings in this place than the building itself. The inside is modern, completed with panoramic windows. Use the extra doors with nets to let the air flow in or simply sit on your terrace and enjoy the view. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was large and well equipped. There are 2 pools on site, the one up the hill offering the best views and both have shaded seating. There is no real beach close as the hotel is set on a high shore and with the strong tide the small stripe of sand gets quickly covered but there is a lower deck with access to the ocean. If you wake up very early check the sunrise on the small dock left side to the restaurant or if it was a rainy night just walk the gardens up the hill near pool â€“ the flowers will look beautiful with rain drops in the morning sun light. Also early morning you can hear the howler monkeys from the islands in front of the hotel. There is one restaurant that is serving all meals and if you donâ€™t want to go far from the hotel is your only option but a good one, not too expensive either by comparison with similar hotels. We mostly took fish and it was always fresh and tasty. Breakfast is served individually not as a buffet but it was sufficient and well done. In terms of activities if you didnâ€™t plan anything before arrival the hotel will advise on many options both in the region itself or even longer trips to Boquete or Baru. If you donâ€™t want to go too far it`s worth investing at least a bit extra money and hire a boat and its captain to explore the islands around. You have more options: snorkel, beach, fishing, nature watching in mangroves etc. They also have kayaks available for rent. We have rented a boat with captain to explore the rocky bridge like formations in the islands around and we also enjoyed snorkeling and relaxing on beautiful white sand beaches. Maybe a note on the weather â€¦ as in any place on the ocean shore of course is better if you chose coming during dry season to be able to enjoy at maximum both this hotel and the nature around â€¦ We would definetelly love to come back to Bocas del Mar.
"Paradise like in the movies "
Bocas Del Mar is a delightful resort with superb staff on a beautiful property. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. It has a very European feel about it and you can tell that the people really care about the place. The room was very clean and comfortable, with a little kitchen area with coffee, water, everything you expect, and a nice patio overlooking the harbor. The bed was very comfortable with clean linens. The view from nearly every window in the apartment was spectacular. The gardens are lush and gorgeousness with all kinds of unusual trees and flowers and birds. There are two infinity pools with plenty of shade and fabulous views. The managers Marcos, Elaina and Peter and their wonderful assistants Cheryl and Odalys did everything they could to make sure that our stay was the best. They had many helpful suggestions of things to do in the area and were always smiling and friendly. We went fishing, snorkeling and island hopping in the huge marine reserve just off shore. That was one of the best things about the whole area as the water is fantastic and you can kayak, fish, swim and dive and go explore beaches to your hearts content. The boats were available, very affordable and comfortable. Captain Javier was a knowledgeable fishing guide and showed us lots of hidden island treasures, coves and rock arches. Breakfast is included and they have a excellent restaurant on site with very reasonable prices for everything and pleasant staff. Maria and her brother were especially nice and even though we were there for 7 days, we never grew tired of the menu. Yummy. I highly recommend Bocas Del Mar. Everything you would expect from a 4 star facility. Thanks for a great time!
"Seamless, Superb Service"
We enjoyed a seven night stay at this wonderful resort. It is a special place where dedicated staff do everything they can to make your stay as excellent as possible. The resort sits at the base of a huge national ocean sanctuary. The boat trips Bocas Del Mar offers are very high quality, helping us explore in an exciting but safe way. The resort restaurant is outstanding and reasonably priced. Canâ€™t wait to return. There are a variety of accommodations available. We stayed in a little house complete with a kitchen. It sits high on a hill with a gorgeous view. Staff were always eager to drive us up in their golf carts if we wished.
Ok ok you might pay a little more than average in Panama but you get so much more! We were very warm welcomed by Peter who went out of his way to service us. Within 30 minutes after our arrival we had a nice welcome drink, we were having lunch (while the restaurant wasnâ€™t open yet!), registered and were booked on a boat tour for the entire afternoon. Great start! The hotel looks spotless, so white, so clean so well looked after. The rooms are beautiful and the bed and shower very comfortable. The pool looks amazing and the sun beds are in the shade. Pool towels are provided. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast in the hotel, all very nice (only small comment; drinks took a bit long. Twice we had food before drinks). Staff at the hotel is great too, really taking ownership and going out of their way to help. Special thanks to Peter and Flor. The boat tour with taxi boat was â€œwowâ€! Beautiful nature and the feeling of â€œbeing alone on planet earthâ€ just amazing! This place is simply wonderful!
"The Stuff that Dreams are Made of..."
The managers and staff truly made our stay most memorable. Their attentiveness to detail, generosity, and concern for our well-being made this the best stay in all of Panama for us. Peter actually arranged for our lovely bungalow to have a fresh fruit platter and chilled wine upon our day-late arrival. How kind is that!!! The setting is gorgeous - -you won't want to leave which is a good thing as Boca China is a bit out of the way! We had a great fishing trip, the bartender is superb, the food is delicious. I would go back in a heartbeat!
