Pros: Great location, very friendly staff. Lunch and dinner service was of good quality and nice consistency. In most occasions service was efficient, always very friendly. Clean rooms with comfortable beds. Made an island tour and loved it. Great attention of the excursion staff as well.
Cons: I did not like the flooring of the bungalow. Looks like wood but is hard plastic and the edges are kind of sharp. I can understand that the climate obliges you to use something that is resistant to humidity, but the same flooring on the steep stairs of the bungalow did not make me feel comfortable (travelling with a small kid that might fall and get hurt). Did not like the breakfast that much. We were 3 adults and 1 kid. The first day we got two fruit platters, the second day we only got one. Each fruit platter came with 3 pieces of bread, jam and one little butter (10 g) In addition to that, you could choose eggs, pancakes or some other "main" from a menu. Overall it was good, and when asking for additional items, they were delivered. However, it made it look like management is more concerned about the food cost than about serving a genereous breakfast. Also, we ordered lobster for our last dinner and were slightly disappointed - heavily overcooked and portion size looked small. Did not feel like sending it back as we were hungry and tired, but it needed to be said.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Boat excursions were great for a family with kids. Bird watching tour benefited from having some professional birders on tour who kindly introduced our kids to birding. The snorkeling, private beach and dolphin tour we did twice. Recommend parida reef if given the option. The guide went out of his way while snorkeling to help kids and point out amazing fish. The calmness and peacefulness of the property, even if you have kids, was marking. Management of property is top notch and very accommodating to meet our needs. We will look to come back to see the whales. Finally weather end of March was excellent.
Cons: Restaurant had great food, especially fresh fish, but service does not always get requests right. You may find yourself asking a few times for things. Some further training would go a long way. Menu was constant, would have a daily option variety for fresh seafood. There is a daily drink

Pros: The breakfast was delicious!
Cons: Absolutely nothing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: fantastic and extremely helpful staff and service and gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous location
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Stuff was very helpful, the garden and the villas super nice. The view was excellent. Everything clean and new. The beaches reached by boat were amazing.
Cons: We personally would prefer buffet breakfast because we would have more choice, but the breakfast was good. And I would expect normal bed instead of bunk bed in villa of this kind. To get to the real beach you have to use the boat. (or as the hotel tour or cheaper taxi boats from Boca Chica village)

Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
9.5 Excellent

8.3 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Boca Chica is a small beach town, that is off the radar. We were told about this as an alternative to Bocas, as we didn't want to drive that far in the rainy season, but wanted to see some Islands. Panama has a series of archipelagos and we had an amazing day trip to see one particular Island called Isla Secas. The hotel has lots of tours and this one was about 5 hours, and along the way, we were followed by dolphins for a nice 30-45 mins and also saw some Whales also. The private beach was amazing, and we took a bottle of champagne to enjoy there. The hotel itself is very clean and the staff are super friendly, the beds were super comfortable and the bath even had hot water, not a given in Panama. Food was also well prepared and not overly expensive. Lastly, I have to mention one fantastic thing the hotel staff did for us. We found a large piece of driftwood on the beach that would be perfect for a coffee table, and we asked if possible if they would allow us to take it. They not only agreed but had their staff carry this very heavy piece to our car, which was probably 50+ steps up the hill. Amazingly nice and a perfect ending to our 4-day trip.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: 4 hour boat tour is awesome!
Cons: Room could have used a little maintenance. Caulk in bathroom was yellowing.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Incredible staff, incredible food! We have been traveling Panama for a month and spent two nights here. Without a doubt the food was the best we had in Panama. You can literally order anything on the menu and know it will be amazing. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate their guests. And the restaurant made incredible off the menu vegan food for my wife. We really loved our stay. The view is great.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful facility. Restaurant had an incredible view and delicious food. The owner and staff went above and beyond to make it a fantastic experience.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Food was excellent. The sea kayaks were adequate for skimming along the bay and across to the other coast so we could try to go fishing but did catch anything.
Cons: The light system in the casita was confusing and we actually slept with the little outdoor lights on . I finally found the switch outside by the sedan and turned them of. Oh well!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: “The Cala Mia Resort was the highlight of our amazing trip to Panama this month! We stayed at some beautiful spots, but this one topped them all. From the first booking the owner David and his girlfriend Annie went out of their way to accommodate all of our needs, before we even checked in, food preferences, side trips, expectations, everything. Once we got to the property, we just didn't want to leave! It features these beautiful oceanfront and bayfront bungalows, each with its own individual charm, private, luxurious and with a raised deck right next to the water. Lush landscaping, and flowers, orchids, and trees, birds galore, incredible vistas and views, a suspension bridge to a gorgeous open deck and spa. We took the side trips to go horseback riding (from one island which you reach by boat all the way back to the Cala Mia resort), snorkeling trip to a private island (which was used in Survivor and has some incredible driftwood) and beautiful coral reefs, waters with turtles, dolphins and lots of sea life). Back at the property, the kayaks, paddleboards were all included, no rental needed. The infinity pool was refreshing. But aside from the beauty, the thing that made our stay so special was the team and the owner, taking time to talk with us ask what we needed, and make some of the most delicious food were had the whole trip. Ahi tuna, banana pancakes (to die for!), fruit every morning, just heavenly! All in all, a beautiful, not to be missed location! Thank you David and team!”
Cons: There was literally nothing not to like!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The view, nature, beach, beach bar and chill out area and the Spa are amazing
Cons: Food and drinks are to expensive compared to other 5* accommodations in Panama
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent property and staff. I really wouldn't stay anywhere else other than Cala Mia. From the moment we were greeted, everything was handled and you truly felt like you were in paradise. We have only been gone now about two weeks, and discussed just last night if we thought we might be able to go back next Summer for an extended stay. Muerta, Jesus, Edwin, Marisela, David, Fred and Christian were all fantastic. Highly recommend this property.
Cons: We didn't stay longer.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is really a magical place ! We are so happy that we decided to stop here. We loved our room, the beach and the service! We have also done the excursion to islas secas snorkeling and diving and this was fantastic! The resort has kajaks and you can do a fantastisch tour to the mangrooves. We have also done a hike uphill and saw many monkeys with their babys in the trees.
Cons: What you have to keep in mind is that a small resort on an Island is less flexible in extra wishes on some things ie food- for us everything was Perfect and we are relaxed in that regard- but it is worth mentioning. Also bring mosquito spray.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Actually I love everything. I ask for a decoration in my room for my husband Father’s Day gift we love it
Cons: I love everything
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Great place to get away from it all....Superb private patio with each unit. Staff is the tops, friendly,casual dining. Not recommended for small kids. Dinner becomes a little pricey with addons. Our 2nd visit. Not our last.
Pacific Bay Resort - Boca Chica - Bedroom
4
9.7 Excellent (19 reviews)
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The natural environment and the simplicity of the facilities were most appealing, along with the beautiful stretch of two beaches from which to choose. The food was delicious and healthy, with a home cooked touch and served by the friendly staff, always smiling, or by Frank, the owner, who created an atmosphere of friendliness and fun at every meal.
Cons: We got a little bitten .... only in the evening.....but it goes with the territory. Bring insect repellent and anti itch cream!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing location including beaches, and all necessary for a real fantasy escape.
Cons: For our group it was perfect. Steep paths and trails may make it difficult for anyone who has mobility problems.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Frank, the owner is great. Very entertaining. He cooks and the food was very good. My wife and I went to the South beach and loved it. We walked to the restaurant and the beach without any problem, but it is hilly.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Pacific Bay was, for us, well worth the trip to get there. Remote, off-the-grid, and beautiful. We certainly got our exercise walking uphill 3 times a day for meals, and a golf cart and driver were available when we didn't feel like walking. "All-inclusive", simple meals, often vegetarian, in a magnificent setting.
Cons: Truly the only thing we wished was different was our final meal. It was a simple, meatless pasta dish and fell short of a grand finale.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The beaches were fabulous and the property very quiet. The host is charming and handles all the details for things you need. It was very easy to unplug from the world and enjoy the beautiful views.
Cons: It would be good to know that a water taxi is required to reach the property and it is $30 each way. I left my car on the street because the town parking was full on the holiday weekend, no problems. Be prepared for the ride if you're bringing beach supplies or other stuff.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly host and staff, accommodating and charming. Beautiful nature, beaches and views. A great location in Panama: peace, quiet, very relaxing. We had a great time with our family. Food and drinks were well taken care of.
Cons: Nothing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is stellar. We were surrounded by Howler and Capuchin monkeys, and more birds than I can name.
Cons: No AC in the casitas, but fans are provided, and it is usually breezy at night.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful experience. Frank was welcoming and the food was delicious. The cabanas are spaced out around the property, the beaches were exceptional and we saw howler and white faced monkeys. Frank offered to pick us up with his golf cart whenever we saw the need.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The scenery and location of Pacific Bay Resort is simply paradise.
Cons: There are steep hills to walk all over the property. This is not a location for anyone with the slightest mobility issue.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Staff was super friendly and very helpful. They offer a nice boat tour, which we enjoyed (there was snorkeling and gorgeous beaches). Room and bathroom were clean. There was a mini-fridge and A/C in the room. The pizza at Roxy's restaurant is home made and super yummy! We had a hammock in front of our room and howler monkeys close by. Very relaxed atmosphere. Fair prices for beer and food. Roxy, the owner, is super hospitable, generous and just fun to be around. She and her staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. It's also a place that cares about the environment. Would definitely stay there again.
Cons: Mini-fridge has a light which lights up the whole room at night because it's got a glass pane in the fridge door. We just covered it with a towel so it was no problem. Breakfast portions were on the smaller side but also quite affordable.
6.3 Good
Pros: Staff really helpful, pool area stunning, owner was very helpful
Cons: Room very tiny should not be made available for 4 people.

Cons: Wifi was not good only complaint!
4.3 Okay
Pros: Receptionist was able to call a water taxi on our behalf
Cons: No or soap to wash your hands after using the restroom. Gritty bathroom floor. Dirt on the floor. Music was blaring until 3 AM from the restaurant directly beside the hotel which is also part of Roxy fishing club making it impossible to sleep.
7.5 Good
Pros: Location was great, just 2 minutes from the dock where you can take the boat to any of the tours. The room was clean, spacious and the staff deliverd a good service overall. They were very helpful with guidance on tours and prices. They let us use the pool restrooms and showers to get changed post-checkout once we returned from the tours.
Cons: You need to bring your own soap, shampoo and personal things. Convinience stores aren't always open during the day.

8.3 Excellent (115 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Howlers Bay Hotel in Boca Chica, you'll be on the beach, just steps from Playa Grande and a 4-minute drive from Boca Chica Church.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: If you have a little more budget I would take the room with the private bathroom. Its big window gave us the best view we had in Panama and we woke up with monkeys right by our window! Ask for the private beach!!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Nature : howler monkeys in the trees when we wake up, view on the ocean when you take your breakfast, nice path which goes to the beach full of wildlife . The owner and the staff are really friendly.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing place for spending some days away from people. The view is spectacular und Collin did his best job and tried to make it the best stay possible for everyone. Everything was clean and help was offered whenever it was needed. Also, you can drink the tap water (even tastes better than the bottled one)!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful place in the woods with surprising wildlife directly at the hostel. Not only howlers around but also an amardillo and of course a lot of birds. Not to mention the hungry raccoons... Collin, the goat is a really nice guy and helped with great tips and good advice what to do on Boca Brava. The tent we stayed in was very comfortable and had more room than expected. Highly recommended if you are fine with living a little basic but experiencing great nature.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The location was unbelievably beautiful. It felt like our own little piece of paradise. Howlers bay is a perfect location if you enjoy the simpler things in life. It has a summer camp vibe, not to be mistaken for an all inclusive hotel.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The oropeieter
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Great experience! It was secluded and our room faces the ocean. The hammock was a bonus! They have a fridge and snacks in the kitchen. Parking is available on the mainland for $3 a day and the round trip boat ride is $4. They all came to get us at the dock and walk uphill to this hotel. Very friendly staff. Just what we nneeded for the start of our vacation!
Cons: Wish there were more food options
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great place, very beautiful view and nature. Perfect to relax, watch monkeys, and walk to the beautiful beaches a little further. Just think about bringing everything you need (all food and drinks) with you! The kitchen is fully equipped and there is also a barbecue you can use.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Howler monkeys in the trees ten feet from our cabin, parrots in nearby trees, and saw my first armadillo that night while sitting on the porch.
Cons: If restaurant nearby or agreement with other hotel nearby to allow use of their restaurant. However, kitchen facilities completely adequate, and plenty of notice given, so we were prepared with own food.
7.5 Good
Pros: The location is a dream. On the cliff of a quiet jungle island, with view on the sea, sunrise with the animals and sunset pretty much alone on a bench or swing. From there you can get quickly to a small beach or walk longer to a larger one, either way, easy and beautiful. The cabin also had its own sea view and hammock so we could chill there too. The kitchen has the basics and you can buy a few things there too.
Cons: The teenager who managed the place is, well, a teenager. What to expect? He greeted us at the dock without introducing himself, so it was hard to know if he was starting an anthropological study of foreigners or being a good host. At some point he started rolling his eyes because of the quality of my Spanish...plain rude. He hang in one of the hammocks pretty much all day long with his smartphone and headphones apart from his twice a day jogging tour...To top it all he has the memory of a goldfish so on our departure day I had to remind him 3 times to order a water taxi, and when you remind him, he gets annoyed. Sure.
