“The only place to stay in Bocas del Toro”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2015

First time in Panama - and this was the best place we stayed! The setting right on the beach with beautiful gardens is unbeatable. The luxury of your private pool over-looking your personal beach is beyond compare. The accommodations are clean, modern and have everything you could need. The hosts are professional and have excellent knowledge of the area and recommendations of things to see and do. One of the best snorkeling experiences we've had was thanks to them.

“Paradise in Bocas!”

Reviewed 22 Mar 2015

From the moment we arrived it was obvious Villa Parasio was the perfect place for us. The suite in the main house is tastefully decorated, fully equipped and extremely clean and well maintained. The covered veranda, with comfortable furnishings, is the perfect place to relax while enjoying views of the pool, beach and turquoise water beyond. We enjoyed the beautiful and refreshing pool every day and evening! The grounds and gardens are maintained as an exquisite estate and the beautiful beach is literally just steps away. Steve gave us a thorough introduction to the Villa, answered all of our questions and made some great recommendations. Throughout our stay Angie made sure we had everything we needed. Villa Paraiso is a family affair with their three sons (Connor, Wes and Riese) involved in making their guests' stay a memorable one and we enjoyed learning about their Bocas experience. We enjoyed the cooking of Chef Wes for several breakfasts and a wonderful dinner all served on the veranda. They are there if you need them but respect your privacy otherwise. The Villa is in a perfect and very private location. All of the activities and nightlife of Bocas Town are just a short drive away. It serves as a great base to explore Isla Colon and all of the surrounding Islands. Villa Paraiso and the Cottrell family made our trip a great one! We highly recommend!

““A lovely Home - just perfect for a caribbean splash!””

Wow. Just so amazing. We had the best time. We did all the great adventure trips around the Bocas Islands and felt home in this lovely house. Everyday we played a little ping pong at the appartement and swam in the beautiful pool. The Owners Boy's were really helpful and kind! Unfortunatly we didn't have the time to use the kayaks but we loved to cruize around the island with the two bikes we received from the owners. It was absolute paradise! Thanks a lot for this! ps. for everyone who thinks colon is just a party island - in Villa Paraiso you don't feel any of the town's nightlife just if you want, you can take a little bike ride into town, which is really refreshing and have a drink or two or three :-)

“Highly Recommend”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2015

Stayed at Villa Paraiso for 3 nights and I couldn't recommend it anymore. The Cottrell's looked after us great, and supplied us with everything we may have needed for our stay in Bocas Del Toro - with kayaks, pool equipment, BBQ, a list of things to do in the area among many other things! They were very friendly and approachable and we felt very comfortable there. Shame we ever had to leave really :)

“Absolutely amazing”

Reviewed 27 Oct 2014

We only got to stay a couple of days but it was absolutely amazing!!! We stayed in the suite. This place was definitely the cleanest place I have ever stayed in in Panama or the states. Angie is great to help you in anyway and super friendly!! We didn't get to try chef Wes's cooking but we did get to have Chris cater in dinner one night and it was the best food we have ever ordered. We ordered the Lobster and the yellow fin tuna. We really enjoyed taking the kayaks that are provided out one day. This is such a relaxing enjoyable place to come. The beach right outside your door is so nice and clean. If you come to Boca's, Villa Paraiso is definitely the place to stay. It exceeded our expectations!! Pictures honestly just don't do it justice.

“Best Place to Stay in Bocas”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2014

My wife and I stayed at Villa Paraiso for 8 nights. This is by far the best place to stay in Bocas. The location is perfect - on the beach, quiet and only a 5 minute taxi ride to town which cost $1.50/person. You will not find a nicer lodging option in Bocas and the Cottrell family are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. The house also comes with several complimentary perks like bicycles, snorkel gear, kayaks, and more. We highly recommend you rent a 4 wheeler from Flying Pirates (they have an exclusive to 1500 acres of jungle). We paid $200 for a 5 day rental and had a chance to see parts of the island you cannot see otherwise. Plenty of excellent dining options - be sure to check out the recommendations on TripAdvisor as that was our guide and you can't go wrong. Highly recommend!

Absolutely beautiful! Look no further, book this place if you can, you wont be disappointed. Everything is exactly as described, really lovely place with excellent hosts who go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need.

“Super stay”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2013

Angie and Steve are great hosts. Their home is beautiful, especially the private pool. Extras were the best- cell phone, Internet, bikes, and even beer in the fridge. Note- unless you are in great shape do not try riding your bike to Playa Dragos- it is grueling (can I buy a second gear?) However- there s a beautiful beach at the end, along with a cold beer, and you can take a taxi home. We had a great time.

“Best relaxing vacations Sopt”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2013

we have visited the island so many times and stayed at different hotels but none like Villa Paraiso. Quality service!!! Super clean rooms. We spent two wonderful days relaxing by the pool, the beach. The service offered by Cotrells are five stars: the breakfast, each atmosphere is special, everithing so neat. if you want a place to relax ... Villa Paradise is the place. the only thing you will hear are the waves of the sea and the birds singing. Thank you famliy

“Amazing!!! Already planning our next visit!”
