Contemporary villas in the island wilderness
Posted Feb 26, 2017
This is a secluded resort with villas and bungalows connected by bumpy gravel roads. The reception is 15 min boat ride from Isla Colon, island where the airport is. During our stay the boat transfer was free mot of the day, as there were some issue with water supply at the resort. We were informed in a timely manner prior to our arrival that our accommodation will change from the bungalow on the top of the hill to a room in the villa a bit closer to the beach. The room and the villa were beautiful, with a great view of the beach, Caribbean and a small island just in front of the beach, which had a sign "for sale". Small diesel trucks were used to transport us to the reception, or the breakfast restaurant on the beach. The would come promptly and drive us like you are on the safari. It was fun, fortunately I already passed my kidney stones prior to this vacation. LOL. Due to this water problem restaurant was opened for breakfast only, so for food we ventured to Bocas del Toro little town as well as to 2 local bars at 2 hostels on the Bastimentos island which were serving very decent food and drinks really cheap. The weather was decent, not too much sun, so we could walk during the day and sit on the beach. It was windy and surf was high, so swimming wasn't an option. Our private villa infinity pool was an excellent replacement. There was a lot of construction going on within the resort and a lot of trucks and workers moving around. We felt safe to walk around the resort.
