Clean, comfortable. Nice to have pool to come back to after outings. Good location close to launch sites for day tours and water taxi services.

Pros: The hotel was fair, but can't complain if your spending less than hundreds a night.
Cons: Wi-Fi needs improvement, as it was a bit of a working vacation.
Location: Location was ok, close to supermarkets & restaurants.
Staff could be more friendly... Having said that,we've found most of the Panamanian people the same.... It wasn't that we couldn't speak Spanish, so it wasn't language issue... Overall the stay was ok.

1st visit to Bocas

Posted Jul 5, 2016
Pros: fresh water pool
Cons: appearance of hotel
Location: lots of restaurants
Hotel resembles a place from the 50's! However, they do have great air conditioning and a fresh water pool. It is close to all of the downtown restaurants. Worked well for us! Be sure and check out Undersea Promotions for all of your excursions! They are excellent! Ask for Estaban & Alexi!! Tell them the Professional and his family sent you! They will crack up!

hotel swans cay

the first night we got the wrong room. we had requested a double bed, and got two twins pushed together, with different height mattresses. bad sleeping, but they got us into a double bed for the next two nights in the original hotel building. the swimming pool is small, but refreshing in the high humidity. room safes worked, and natalie at the desk was a doll. far enough away from the party scene that made it easy to sleep

Excellent hotel let down by staff and wifi

Posted Feb 17, 2016 on Hotels
Excellent room in terms of quality, comfortable bed and modern bathroom. Nice pool and good breakfast buffet ($6.50 extra). Although it's in the centre, it's fairly quiet at night although rooms on the main lobby can have a bit of noise. I used ear plugs. Biggest let down, apart from slow wifi, is the staff, some of whom can't even manage a smile. I arrived at 13.00 and said I had a reservation. The woman on reception looked up from eating her lunch and just said" check in is at 15.00" then went back to her food. No attempt to see if a room was actually ready - although I was able to leave my pack and change before heading to the beach.

Good Value for the Price

I stayed for a business trip and I know Bocas very well. The cleaning staff was great. The front desk staff were not very friendly or helpful. The staff in my opinion should not be vacuuming outside rooms early in the morning. Most people ar seating here on vacation and don't want to be woken up to that. It could easily be done later in the day.
