  • 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."

  • Perfect for families! Best in Bocas!

    "Our stay at Lucas and Gloria's place was more than amazing!! We decided to make a last minute trip to Bocas from Puerto Viejo. We planned to stay for only 4 nights, but loved it so much, we had to extend to a week, and then really wished we had time for a month or two. Lucas and Gloria were easily able to accommodate our family of 5 and they were such wonderful hosts. The house was very clean, everyone was comfortable and we had plenty of space. Our kids absolutely loved it here! The hammock in the living room was a hit with everybody. We got to see monkeys up close every day, and a lot of cool birds we had never seen. One of our favorite parts were the coconut trees! We absolutely loved the fresh coconut water and coconut meat every day. And to be able to get fresh eggs from the hens was great as well. We were also thankful that we were able to do our laundry when we needed. We loved the location- far enough from town so we weren't in the middle of parties and crowds, but close enough to get there easily when we needed to. Lucas also arranged for a boat tour with a local guy and Gloria called a taxi for us when we needed to leave. They had great advice for us on beaches and cool local spots to go to. We definitely got a lot more out of our stay than we would have in a hotel! So thankful that we found this gem!"

  • Perfect location on the island!

    "This was a great place for a quiet girl's trip, a couple, or small family. We were three women who wanted a Caribbean vacation AWAY from the resorts and cruise areas. The home was clean, and in a perfect location for the ocean breeze. Travelers should know you must walk along a trail to reach the property, but the view, quiet location, and breeze is worth the walk. The caretakers were very kind, accommodating and was even waiting for us with a light when we were not back before dark. The kitchen had basic supplies for cooking, although we had a little trouble with the propane tank. Santiago was quick to get us another one and help us connect it. One air conditioner worked well, but was very noisy. The other didn't work. The property manager quickly sent a repairman, but it was unrepairable. Sleeping was a bit warm in that bedroom! My only suggestion is to provide some sheets with a higher cotton content (I'm being very picky here). If you've looked into this area, you know that this island is still off the beaten path which has advantages, and some disadvantages. The people are extremely kind, but there was a mugging the previous month so be cautious walking at night. We (three women) felt very safe during the day. A local, named Rene', was a good guide if you want to take a day trip or go out at night. There was also quite a bit of trash everywhere, but the area around the home is relatively clean. On a calm day you can snorkel down the path, and the Firefly restaurant was a wonderful place to get a meal. The water taxis are easy to use and can take you anywhere in the area for a low cost. This was a great place for our adventure! Highly recommended!"

  • Wonderful place for a family vacation!

    "We decided to book a last minute mini-family vacation and the owner was able to accommodate us. She responded promptly and we were able to easily make payment and access the apartment. The apartment was floor to ceiling with windows, giving breath-taking views of the ocean, mountains, and sunset. There was plenty to do as a family, including 2 beautiful pools and private beaches. The apartment contained everything we needed during our stay and various groceries stores were nearby. We would definitely recommend!"
