Spectacular view, Excellent house, good caretakers, OK island
"The views from the deck, living and dining areas are amazing. The sound of the ocean surf is constant and beautiful. The sunsets are gorgeous and calming. The caretaker Antonio was so pleasant to talk with and nice to have nearby. The kitchen is stocked with utensils and pans but not with any food or condiments. Stop at a grocery at bocas town and make sure to get water, salt and spices and oil in addition to food. Once at the house it isn't easy to find supplies - though there is a small grocery next to the water taxi pier. The house was super clean and the ac was so great at night after hot days.
Bastimentos itself is dirty with trash but the side of the island where the house is located is clean and well kept. This house was one of the nicest we saw during our stay. The local folks are nice without being overly welcoming, which is fine. I felt safe walking around day or night. Beautiful beaches, snorkeling and other activities are just boat rides away.
Firefly is a few minutes walk (bring headlamps at night) and worth the price - great food and drinks and the most romantic atmosphere. Also a good place to meet other vacationers.
I was able to wade with some kids in a nearby sand bar but otherwise the surf was too strong and I didn't have water shoes to try swimming in front of the house. Wifi was reliable. Didn't try the television but satellite with English channels is available."

"The house was wonderful. Extremely comfortable & spacious. My husband and I had a great experience for 8 glorious days spent wandering the beach, swimming and walking. This home exceeded our expectations and we would go back again."

"A wonderful stay with a great host."Suites on the Beach" is not a misnomer. It could be called "Sweet on the Beach." You are literally steps away from the surf. Our host played the piano for us on the deck with a beaming orange moon lighting the water. it was magical! We stayed 10 nights and bemoaned having to leave. Meals at nearby restaurants were excellent."

"Bocas is decidedly Caribbean. Been traveling the Pacific side of Central America and you don’t need eyes to know that Caribbean smell. Save your eyes for the drop dead gorgeous Vista Azul Lodge on Isla Carenero. The archipelago Islands of Bocas del Toro is super unique and its recommended to see, stay, surf & party right here in this home. Its without a doubt the premier home that accommodates both family and friends. The staff will make sure your vacation dreams come true. I dream big so I know…"
