  • Panama at its best

    "This terrific house was home to three couples for five nights in early April, and it could not have been better. The house was exceptionally clean and well equipped, and with three bathrooms, was perfect for our group. The large front porch was our favourite hangout. The staff at Azul Paradise resort next door, which manages the house, treated us like their own guests. And the best part was that because we had access to resort amenities, we had the best of both worlds - private accommodation and kitchen facilities but we used the resort restaurants when we didn't feel like cooking. We took advantage of the resort's snorkelling excursion packages and, for a group of scuba divers like ourselves, we were very impressed. The snorkelling was better than many of our dives. If you rent the house, don't miss the opportunity to visit Salt Creek and take a jungle tour. The beach was beautiful, the water was warm and the resident howler monkey was entertaining. It could not have been a better Panama experience."

  • Everything I hoped for!

    "I just got back from a fantastic Panama Vacation! The 4 day stay at Bluff Beach Resort could not have been any more enjoyable! My girlfriend and I stayed 2 nights in the secluded Las Palmas Casita and 2 nights in the main beach house Las Olas master bedroom. If you prefer to be a little isolated away from the main house, then Las Palmas is the way to go. There is no AC in any of the rooms but you really don’t need it with the nice ocean breezes and fans. The sounds of the jungle mixed with the waves crashing on the shore were just surreal. The property is gorgeous and fits so naturally in the surroundings. I especially love the how the paths were lit during the night. It gave such a magical walk through the tropical vegetation. A beautiful, quiet beach is just steps away from the front of the property. On the way back from the beach, I showered outside and took a dip it their fantastic pool then sipped cool drinks with fresh limes from their farm under the thatched umbrellas. We also took an afternoon ride on the horses that were available. The horses were beautiful and well behaved. The guide was very considerate of my girlfriend who had never ridden a horse. We stopped for a refreshing dip at a beautiful secluded spot on the far side of the island. On the way back our guide even pointed out a monkey in a tree that we would have never seen! The inn keepers, Steve and Karen, really made a huge impression on me. I have stayed at other B&B in the past but Steve and Karen stand out as the best! I felt more like family than a guest. They went above and beyond hospitality by picking us up at the airport, taking us shopping, arranging local tours and taxis, and offering rides when going into town. They were always willing to share their abundant knowledge of the area with stories that entertain as well as inform. Steve even got up in the middle of the night to help a stranded Taxi driver that was stuck in the sand on the only road on our side of the island. I was also very impressed with how respectful they spoke and interacted with the local workers, who did not speak English. You can tell how everyone loved their jobs by how clean and well maintained the property is. Needless to say, they are just wonderful people that will make sure you enjoy this beautiful place."

  • Great house in an amazing location

    "Peter was very responsive during the booking process. Arriving in this house is a true experience. It is located in an idyllic location, the house is huge and decorated with style. Every room is spacious, the bathrooms are clean and comfortable,.... Ely, the house manager came to pick us up at the airport and escorted us to the house. We booked 2 people to help us with cleaning and cooking. This is really a great recommendation. It allows you to have a more relaxed stay and also experience local cuisine and cooking. From the island, we were able to explore Bocas every day as we pleased : we booked a local boat (Choy is our favorite!) and explored the islands in Bocas, we visited a great cave, went to the town,.... As for potential improvements : - We did not have hot water in 1 side of the house for a couple of days. Not a disaster, but some people do appreciate a nice hot shower - We were there in a holiday week. We were hoping for more privacy. You have quite some tourists walking by and chilling on the beach during the day and during the days it got very crowded with locals who literally trashed the beach. Piles of trash were left behind on the beach and cans and bottles were floating in the ocean when we woke up. Really sad. But I think that on regular weeks, this is less of an issue. - There were a lot of bugs, so take plenty of insect repellent and coils if you want to enjoy the deck outside. But all in all a great experience and a place I would definitely recommend for larger groups."

  • Very nice property in Bocas - totally recommended

    "We had a great time in this property. We used all the rooms available to accommodate a large group and the house was impecable. Super clean kitchen with all the necessities and more. The rooms in the second level house were beautiful and the bathrooms as well. Great living room space, too bad that the cable tv did not work. Bill apologised many times for this and it was simply bad luck. The housekeeper forgot our arrival date and the rooms were not cleaned when we arrived but she worked until late at night to fix and clean everything for us. She was super nice as well. Great house if you are looking for a location outside town with great accessibility. Nice balcony and dining table and decent rooms on the ground floor. Would totally recommend and come back as soon as i can!"
