"I spent a most relaxing week alone in this wonderful home. Clean, comfortable (good bed in master bedroom), good location and a very diligent caretaker, Javiar, who speaks English very well. This alone is worth a "star" to those who have limited Spanish skills. The "Big Creek" area, where the home is located, is the perfect distance from town---only 5 minutes away in a taxi. You don't need to call a taxi; just start walking on the main road (2 minutes walk from house) and one will come along. This area is beautiful for walking--lovely beaches and amazing, bountiful flora. (And yes, you frequently hear the "Howlers"--a most ferocious sound from such small monkeys!!) An added plus is that there is a pretty overwater restaurant within walking distance (Tortuga Resort).
I never used the air-con as there are adequate windows and many ceiling fans to "catch" the cooling sea breeze. The elevated deck/outdoor living room is BUG FREE!! Again, bless those ceiling fans! The master bedroom has excellent air ventilation and a good mattress, insuring a good night's sleep. The kitchen is well stocked with everything needed (except condiments and spices)--good quality appliances in proper working order. Honestly, this house is SO comfortable that you might have trouble making yourself go explore!"

"PVQ is located on Ancon Hill, so is perfectly positioned for both nature hikes and exploring Panama City. Easy access to Panama's major roads as well as the routes to the interior is five minutes away. The pool was very nice and the two covered patios with grills and tables were much appreciated. The staff were very helpful and cheerful and the facility was very easy to use with an american-style kitchen. The 6-burner gas stove in particular was awesome!. Also, the 2 1/2 baths made getting ready to go a breeze for a big group!"

"I wasn't sure what to expect when we booked here but it was great retreat for us. We didn't come for the fishing so I thought I might get bored but we found it very relaxing. My only regret is that we choose the cottage with the kitchen and we only got to enjoy one of the awesome meals that they serve here."

"This place has all the amenities you could want in Bocas del Toro. The spacious home has two private units on the ground level with a shared patio. The open, modern floor plan was clean and spacious with a full kitchen as well as access to a washer and dryer. We enjoyed the location, which is centered between town (2 miles) and beach bluff. Although bicycles were available, we rented an ATV down the street, which was reasonably priced, making it easy to get around in both day and evenings. Sandi was a gracious host—friendly and welcoming but not intrusive. She has dogs for protection, as do most people owning property in Bocas. We enjoyed occasional cocktails on Sandi’s upper patio, and she helped us arrange several tours, which were highlights of our trip. We enjoyed the jungle feel of the area, including the howler monkeys, without giving up modern amenities."
