Property description

For more detailed information on Bluff Beach Retreat and our homes, please see www.bluffbeachretreat.com

Welcome to Panama!
Our goal at Bluff Beach Retreat is to exceed your expectations and ensure that you have a wonderful holiday. We are one of Panama's highest rated Bed & Breakfast resorts - located on Bluff Beach -Isla Colon, the largest island of the Bocas Del Toro Archipelago on the Caribbean side of Panama. Imagine less than two hours after leaving Panama City you are sitting in the hot sun, on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world - sipping a Mojito! Only 5 miles, or 20 minutes from the islands’ airport- we offer the perfect getaway to those looking for a more private vacation. Airlines offer many flights a day to the island and we will be there to pick you up.
Imagine getting up in the morning to the sounds of the ocean, parrots nesting nearby and seeing monkeys enjoying their breakfast. The smell of fresh-roasted locally grown organic coffee brewed in a French press wakes you. Breakfast consists of freshly squeezed orange juice or a Smoothie made from one of the papayas growing outside your window - eggs, lots of fresh fruit and fresh-baked breads!
The 4 acre property is located directly on Bluff Beach, with miles of secluded sandy beach. It is one of the few places in the world where giant Leather-Back Turtles nest! You can walk forever without seeing another person. Our property has many different varieties of trees – from limes, oranges, papaya, mangoes and bananas to beautiful palms. Wonderfully fragrant shrubs and flowers surround our homes. We have constructed a gorgeous, 4,500 square feet Beach House with four bedrooms and five bathrooms – capable of accommodating nine – plus, for larger groups, we have another Casita that can accommodate more people. Our new heavy-duty solar energy power with 48 solar panels allows us to run all the amenities that you might expect. The homes have been beautifully built with rich native woods, high efficiency Hunter fans, fully screened louvered windows, hotel quality mattresses, lots of hot water, fully equipped kitchens and so much space to relax and enjoy life. Attention to detail makes these homes a cut above the rest!
Our 65 foot lap pool & terrazza is a wonderful addition to the property.
There’s a lot to do. Enjoy walking miles of deep sandy beach, snorkeling, surfing, fishing, kayaking or use one of our bicycles. In addition, we offer horse-back riding with 17 horses, surfing lessons and guided jungle hikes through our 165 acre farm which is located nearby. We can also arrange excellent boat tours with one of our boat captains to the Bastimentos National Park, or a visit to a local Chocolate farm. How busy you want to be is up to you! If you just want to hide out and relax, the house offers wireless hi-speed internet, a large library of books and DVD’s and almost any game under the sun, in addition to a fully-stocked bar. It does occasionally rain at Bluff - but you can enjoy the rain from our 1,200 square foot porch!
When you arrive at the airport, we will be there to greet you - take you grocery shopping should you prefer to cook some of your own meals, and then we are off to Bluff! The accommodation comes with a cell-phone capable of international calls (all out-going calls are your responsibility – incoming are free!). We have four full-time staff – maid service is offered 7 days per week – laundry is offered at a modest charge. There are many excellent restaurants in Bocas town and there are three new restaurants and beach bars located within a short five minute walk from the property. Included in your room is a great breakfast – served on the front porch of the Beach House.
Our Standard Rate is based on 2 people staying in Las Palmas Casita. Rates - Las Palmas Casita (2-4 people) - rates range from $145-$195 per night (Low Season) to $195-$250 per night (High Season). La Pina Casita (2 people) - rates range from $195-$275 per night (Low Season) to $250-$375 per night (High Season). The Beach House (5-9 people) - rates range from $395-$595 per night (Low Season) to $595-$795 per night (High Season). See our website for a complete list of rates. Weekly rates are available. We offer groups a fully catered holiday as an option with your own private cook and helper. This is a totally stress-free way to enjoy the homes.
Email us your request and we will promptly get back to you. A 50% deposit is required – with the balance due 60 days prior to arrival. We accept Visa, M/C, or bank drafts.
Included in your stay:
- Transportation to Bluff Beach upon arrival
- Complimentary bicycles, boogie boards, masks & snorkels and jungle boots - use of a cell-phone
- A great breakfast!

Rare Giant Leatherback Sea Turtles are the largest living sea reptiles on our planet. They can be seen nesting on our beach from late March thru June. It is a wonderful experience to watch!
