Guestbook comments from the manager

Great place, great service”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Muhammed and Rosie are extremely warm and accommodating hosts. All our needs our tended to in a flash. The apartment we rented on the ground floor lacks the views those on higher levels do, but at least you view is of lush jungle gardens. Impeccably clean and well maintained, we have been delighted with condo so far and its brand new appliances. It's a 60 cent cab ride into town per person or a 20 minute walk. Very safe and quiet area near a good super market (though getting fresh veggies is a challenge in Bocas), and also about 25 meters from Guari-Guari and about 200m from El Beso del Dragon (amazing Caribbean food).

Great little pool on site for fresh swim.

I would definitely recommend Vista del Mar's condos.

Not an ideal place to stay

  • 1 of 5

Toilet did not work. Water was shut off. When water was turned back on, it was brown. The pool was green. Our room was occupied although we made reservations well in advance.

Convenient and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Muhammad's place and would recommend to our friends and family. The staff is friendly and helpful, our unit was spacious and cleaned daily. The location was convenient to both sides of the island as well as the beach for a morning walk. We also enjoyed having the pool for a quick swim!

Perfect Condo in the Best Location for our First Time in Bocas

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I (late 20's, early 30's) chose Bocas Del Toro as our vacation destination this year, neither of us having been there before, but both having heard great things. Having Muhammed as our Bocas travel guide and his condo as our home made this trip the most incredible vacation we could have ever asked for. The condo is basic but very clean, perfectly sized for two (or four) people, and in a prime location if you want to live amongst the locals, but be close enough to town to walk/taxi/bike in and be involved in all the action. Across the street from a quiet beach (wake up early to catch the gorgeous Bocas sunrise!) and next door to the only gas station in town (complete with a very basic mini-mart- super convenient for a quick breakfast or a cold six-pack) so it was fairly easy to grab a taxi as they all need to come through there anyway. As other reviewers have said, it's a mere $0.60 per person to taxi into town, but if you choose to walk or bike there are marvelous spots along your way including Bocas Del Toro's only brewery, Bocas Brewery (three minute walk from your front door!). Not to mention, this place was one of the only rentals we found that had a private pool- a huge plus for days you just wanted to sit back and relax.

Muhammed was absolutely fabulous. Not only did we arrive to a bottle of wine welcoming us, Muhammed accidentally misspelled my name in one email, realized it, and wrote us an apology accompanied by yet another bottle of wine! It was so sweet and totally unnecessary, but shows what character and kindness he possesses. Muhammed went above and beyond: setting up excursions for us (it seems he knows everyone on the island- a BIG plus- all we had to say was 'we are staying at Muhammed's' to any cab driver and they knew where to go!), providing dinner recommendations and even booking the reservations for us, and he even explained how to cut down a coconut in our own backyard so we could cut it open and have fresh coconut water in the morning!

I really can't say enough fantastic things about Muhammed, his condo, and Bocas Del Toro. Only minor issues we found were that the fridge sometimes froze some of our items (but we were eating out most of the time so this was not a big deal), and the kitchen could be a bit better stocked (at least for people staying there long term who wanted to cook often). Despite those minor items, couldn't have asked for a better trip. Thank you again Muhammed! Hope to be back soon to visit!

Very Confortable!!

  • 4 of 5

My son, husband and I stay there for 15 days. Very clean, full kitchen, daily maid service, very spacious....(except for the bed!) it was a 1 room with sofa cama in the living room and a terrace, The place has a swimming pool too and very close is a mini market and the taxi stop. It is a 25 to 30 mts walking distance to the main street if you want to do the exercise or .60cents each the taxi but sometimes is not that easy to find one available....the only thing I will change is the size of the bed....a queen size will do better for us next time. But definitely I will recommend the place...Mr Mohammed is a gentleman and always available for any help needed....thank you!!

A home away from home on Isla Colon...

  • 5 of 5

You won't be disappointed in the slightest staying at this condo. It is a home away from home perfectly located a very short .60 taxi ride away from the hustle and bustle of Bocas Town and every activity Bocas del Toro has to offer. Across the street from the local beach, Istmito, and a short walk away from the only gas station in Bocas where there is always a taxi, you are close enough, yet just enough out of the thick of it to have peace and quiet.

Muhammed and Rosy are the best and will help you get settled and get your bearings.

The condo is modern and clean and has everything you would need for a few nights or a month.

The swimming pool is cute and you may even make a friend or two.

Don't hesitate to stay here if you plan to come to Bocas... I came for three nights to renew my Costa Rican visa, and decided to come back to stay in one of Muhammed's condos for a couple months.

A well-appointed, peaceful condo

  • 4 of 5

Muhammed was a gracious host and worked with me via email to set up my reservation. The condo was very nice and clean with all the modern amenities. The bed comfortable, the shower hot, the A/C cold, the kitchen well supplied. The location was as described in the listing - a kilometer or so out of Bocas town but within walking distance of several restaurants and across the street from a beach. One nice amenity was the fact that the top rated restaurant in Bocas del Toro was 50 yards away from the condo. The only disappointment was the lack of a view of the water. The condo was on the first floor and the view consisted of gazing at a horse in the pasture from my porch. A 60 cent taxi ride (which were always readily available) took you to town where numerous restaurants, bars, and tour activities were located. Along with a lot of noise which was not a worry at the condo.
