Recent Colón Island reviews

  • Winston's wonderful casa!

    "If you are looking for quiet, this is your place. We love this house with its large wrap around porch and terrific views. We spent every morning amazed at how quiet and lovely it was. The best swimming is right off the deck with a small coral Reef for a bit of snorkeling. One morning we woke up with 13 Starfish at our feet! Winston the dog sleeps on the back porch and is a perfect host. We missed him when he went out hunting raccoons. The caretaker Mr. Brown is so accommodating. He'll give you two boat rides to town a day. We were well taken care of during our stay!"

  • Beautiful place & grounds, super owner, and awesome location!

    "My girlfriend and I spent four nights here on our recent trip to Bocas. Our only regret, was that we didn't stay longer, as we went to three islands. This was by far our favorite place we stayed! Absolutely beautiful and comfortable lodging, with pretty grounds, and very conveniently located. Skully's bar restaurant (and Flying Pirates ATV rental which you should also do for sure) are right across the street, another awesome restaurant is a short walk up the beach at Paunch, and taxis are easy to get, with the provided phone, and list of numbers. It is a short and cheap ride to town, or to our favorite spot Bluff Beach, which blows away the much more hyped, and much more touristy Red Frog on Bastimentos - it isn't close. Heather the owner could not possibly be more accommodating, and helpful, and was a pleasure to deal with. Be sure to try her homemade chocolate also......YUM. We 100% plan to return to Bocas and will stay at Monkey tree again and for longer. Thanks again! Steven and Kelsey - Minneapolis, MN, USA"

  • Enchanting, relaxing and a perfect place to call our home away from home

    "The property is enchanting. Claudia's directions to the property made it very easy from the start. This place is beautiful. We were greeted by Claudia and felt at home instantly The house is quaint and very comfortable. It definitely is an escape from the outside world. All the necessities were available and Claudia and family were wonderful hosts and gave great advice on places to eat, rent bikes and sight see. Coming back to the Purple House Over the Water is definitely on our list. A beautiful place to call home in Bocas."

  • Beautiful, great location

    "The home is in a beautiful location well away from the noise and commotion of Bocas town and excellent for snorkling off the deck and learning to paddle board with the provided new boards. I agree with other reviewers that the house itself has all of the luxury amenites you will need. My favored way to spend the evening was to sit on the couchs under the porch fans ( to keep the biting insects at bay at sunset), and light a few candles as it became dark. Really peacful! My only reservations for not providing 5 stars is that the plunge pool was unusable because it was cold and the chemical balance was off causing skin and breathing irritation, we alos had an issue with coordinating a the provided ride back to Bocas town with the boat taxi- we were provided a bad phone number on the house cell phone the first time and then the second time the same taxi driver forgot we called him the night before and told him to pick us up at a later time, for his trouble he was wanting additional funds from us for his gas and time. Additionaly the water pump went out for one of our three nights there, we had no drinking water and my partner was not able to finish his shower. A repair person was sent at 7 the following morning. We appreciated the promptness but we had hoped to sleep in a bit having had a lot of early mornings thus far. Overall a lovely location but could have used less hassels with the experience and expense."
