Great stay

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Mar 2023via mobile
My wife and I stayed at Boca Chica Eco lodge for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with our host Herbie and Erica. They were very welcoming and ensured we had all the knowledge needed for the area from boat tours which we highly recommend to restaurants in the area. Herbie was very entertaining and kept all guests laughing especially at breakfast time. We would highly recommend staying here and will return in the future.

      This is a very lovely small b&b, with glorious views and the ability to watch birds and monkeys right from your hotel room or one of the terraces. It also has a small and delightful swimming pool perfect for cooling off. Be aware that you need a car, as the owners will tell you. They have created a lovely slice of a remote and tranquil place to relax and as a small B&B you will need to be mobile to get your meals out or go exploring what the area has to offer

      There is a nice big breakfast to start the day and then you can go to the village for your other meals. There are some beautiful islands to see via water taxis, or tours you can do, and renting a kayak from a neighboring hotel is also a really nice way to spend a day. The hummingbird feeding area is rather lovely and we really did enjoy watching all the wildlife. 

      Beds are super comfy here, we slept a lot and still enjoyed the monkey and bird wake up calls! We had 5 nights here and were truly able to relax while also finding stuff to do each day. Walking on boca brava (loads of monkeys) snorkelling Bolanos and  kayaking to load beaches were our highlights. 

      Room tip: Make sure u have a car

      On our way from Azuero we changed our plans, headed for Boca Chica and looked for a place to stay. Two establishments turned out to be fully booked. We then tried Boca Chica Bay Eco Lodge. One of the guests let us in while another tried to locate HErbie and Erica by phone. Luckily for us they had finished dinner in town and came rushing to check us, unexpected walk-in guests, in. We were welcomed with open arms. Rest assured that we were extremely glad they still had a room left. Yes, we received the "rules sheet" some guests apparently have a huge problem with. We don't, being former hotel owners ourselves. Seeing the beautiful room, on the spot we decided to stay two nights instead of only one. The other guests were amazing and we had wonderful conversations with them. Breakfast was delicious, the setting so cosy and the views breathtaking! We enjoyed every single moment of our stay. We are certainly returning, this time announced!
      Thank you, HErbie and Erica!

      Had a wonderful stay at Boca Chica Eco Bay Lodge. The view from the hotel is absolutely stunning...even better than the photos! Herbie and Erica are very attentive hosts and are very knowledgeable about the area and available tours of the islands etc. The hotel is immaculate and the breakfast is superb (like a full English breakfast) along with Herbie's humor! It is a peaceful unspoiled area and if you are a fan of nature you will love it! I laid in a hammock on the property and watched many humming birds! Incredible! I will most definitely be back for a visit.

      Our stay at Boca chica Eco Lodge was absolutely incredible. The lodge is very well run, and extremely clean. The view could not be any better. The host, Herbie and Erica are extremely accommodating, and entertaining. The breakfast could not be any better. I highly recommend this stop.
