This property was more off the grid and rustic than I originally expected. But I quickly adjusted and it surpassed my expectations. Ideal Panama hut on the water experience. Something I have always dreamed of. This is the charm of the lodge. The staff is so friendly. I traveled solo and felt like I wasn't alone. The staff took great care of me. I would highly recommend to fellow travelers.

Beautiful place
Honestly one of the most stunning destinations I’ve ever visited. It is so incredibly peaceful and the sunrises are unbeatable. The cabins aren’t incredibly up to date but it isn’t necessary in my opinion, the look is very charming. There is no electric sockets in the cabins but you can charge any devices in the restaurant/bar area anytime you like. The free snorkel equipment and kayaks are great too!

A great stay at a lovely place
Great hotel and lovely views across the sea. Staff are very friendly and attentive to your needs and requirements. There’s a free shuttle water taxi that oppresses across from Bocas however note checking pick up times in advance to avoid any disruption. A great place and certainly gets a 10 out of 10 from me.
