Recent Bastimentos Island reviews

  • A stunning stay

    "We had booked Casa dos Amores without knowing anything about Panama in general or the Bocas region in particular. After our stay in Casco Viejo in Panama City and a sailing tour round the San Blas islands, we didn't know what to expect of Isla Bastimentos. We really thought it could not get any better. But, it did. The house was spacious, just a hundred meteres off the beach. In front of it there was this small lagoon with palm trees. Even with 5 adults we had more than enough room to live, sit and move around. The porch was huge with a hammock on either side. We rented the house and although there was always the possibility to cook in a modern kitchen, we were allowed to have breakfast, dinner, drinks and more at a bar only a two minute stroll away from us. For those who cannot really disconnect there is Wifi and the possibillity to pay plastic. This bar is part of a greater project. Next to it, the managers of Casa dos Amores, Erni and Marty Williams, are realizing a dream project: 10 bungalows on the water, a restaurant, a gift shop and a grocery store. The three bedrooms and three bathrooms of Casa dos Amores were clean and tidy. The service from Erni and Marty Williams was more than perfect. They were easygoing and very helpful. The staff of Azul Paradise (www.azulparadise.com) were all locals from a small village called Salt Creek. They were always there to host all the activities - with all their 'island knowledge' - we wanted to do: seven kinds of jungle tours starting at the village, a snorkling trips to sites which are world listed, surfing lessons, etc., etc. So don't hesitate to go there now world tourism has not really landed on Isla Bastimentos yet."

  • Doesn't get any better than this!!

    "We stayed here for 3 nights and it was an experience we never anticipated!! We knew after reading the previous reviews, it would be an awesome Caribbean experience-but it was so much more. Dragon was willing to have us experience life on this island-meeting his friends, visiting a farm, eating fresh seafood! We appreciated getting to know what it's like living here. An added bonus was the snorkeling right off the casita, with beautiful fish and reefs. Dragon also made sure we were well cared for: transportation, Wifi, drinks, delicious food-what more could you ask for! We highly recommend this experience!"

  • Our Trip

    "Our stay was wonderful! The owners were very helpful in answering all of our questions and providing ideas of things to do. The house was really spacious and clean and had an amazing view of the ocean. It was particularly peaceful to sit on the deck at the end of the day and enjoy the sunset and view while listening to jungle sounds. The pool was also fun for our children for a break from the ocean. I highly recommend getting a golf cart as that made trips to the beach, restaurants and dock quick and easy. We also found it was easy to plan and do activities. The staff was very helpful when we needed things and wanted to schedule tours. We went surfing, scuba diving, zip lining and took a day trip to Zapatillos Island, which was remote and beautiful. There was no shortage of activities which made the trip very fun with teenagers. I highly recommend this villa."

  • Best choice for a relaxed stay in the caribbean Bocas area

    "My wife and I had a really great stay at La Casa Blanca while our fantastic journey through Panama. Isla Solarte means caribbean flair pure and is far enough from the bustling Bocas Town to have it quite and relaxed there. The house is in a nice area, has it's own waterdock from where you can go for snorkeling to the nearby coral riffs and a huge terrace with an impressively view, especially by sunset. It's equipped with everything you need for a self catering stay. Also nearby there's a jungle for little hikes where we have seen exotic birds like parrots and many of red frogs and funny crabs. Augustin, who lives directly in the neighborhood, gave us a good support. He took us with his boat to Bocas Town anytime we needed to go there to buy food for our meals and took us also to a nice and very personal boat tour and snorkeling trip to Dolphin Bay, Coral Cays and Bastimentos. If you go there just ask him for fresh fish. In any case we will highly recommend La Casa Blanca for a relaxed stay in Bocas area."
