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.

Fair 4.0
I already sent you the review, I`m surprised you are asking again The hotel looks very nice from the outside, but the cabins...oh dear VERY old, the smell is horrible, and it feels and looks very dirty and unpleasant to stay/sleep in. The staff was very very nice but it`s something they can`t do anything about it...

A Bit of Paradise
Great place. The staff was very attentive. The food was consistently GREAT each day . My only suggestion would be to offer beach towels , so you don’t have to use your room bath towels .

Beautiful location but beware of no AC
Location amazing for watching fish right from your room. Very hot - you will end up sleeping downstairs in hopes of catching a breeze. Using kayaks and snorkel gear a huge plus. You can snorkel right off the lodge and see tons of fish. Look for the black eagle rays swimming around. They are BEAUTIFUL!

Scenery was amazing. Staff was friendly and spoke different languages. Great snorkeling right off your private dock of the hotel. Fresh drinks and well kept accommodations. The only thing we were a little disappointed with was the food. I would definitely stay at this beatiful place again and again, just would get food in town at Bocas.
Phillip, us1 night romance trip

Very peaceful and tranquil. Being able to go right into the water from our deck was a highlight!

Beautiful, Unique, Great Service, No A/C
Wonderful service in this unique hotel. Expensive, but a good value because the water taxi and taxi are included both ways, breakfast and dinner are included, the excellent snorkel equipment is included, kayaks are available to use for free, and the service is excellent. I would think if you wanted to take a lot of day trips around Bocas that you would want to stay in town for a day or two, as getting around might be expensive, but we did not leave the hotel. It was so fun to stay out over the water and the snorkeling and swimming right off your own balcony was excellent. It is an eco-friendly hotel, so there was only a little bit of light and a weak ceiling fan in the room (no hair dryer, no A/C.) It is a two-story suite with a bathroom and living/sleeping area downstairs and a bedroom upstairs. There was not a breeze the night we were there so it was quite hot and humid (we were there during the rainy season) without an air conditioner, but I fell asleep quickly and slept the whole night.

It was everything that it was advertised. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The water was crystal clear, great snorkeling, the food was fantastic, and the staff so accommodating.

An amazing experience from start to finish. The staff were exceptionally warm and kind going out of there way to help in anyway. They were especially fantastic towards my 2.5 year old spending time to talk and explore with her. We spent our days swimming, swinging in the hammock and exploring the mangroves. A truly magical place!

Punta Carocol Lodge / Resort Excellent Setting
We chose the Punta Carocol Lodge / Resort for its setting with rooms over the water. The rooms were adorable with thatched roofs, spacious living space downstairs and the bedroom on a second floor. The lodge is ecologically themed with solar power and other ecological initiatives. The lodge picked us up at the Bocas Town airport and took us via water taxi to the resort. The hotel is only accessible via water taxi so if you wish to go to Bocas Town to visit you must take the 15 minute trip via the water taxi. The restaurant is in a large open air thatched building that has 360 degree views of the water. The food is delicious, locally sourced with many of the offerings being seafood. While there we visited Bocas Town for some shopping, sightseeing and eating. We had a delightful trip provided by the Lodge to Starfish Beach for snorkeling, shopping and eating and spent time snorkeling and kayaking off the deck of our room. It was a delightful trip and experience
