Area was over the water, which was great. Not much beach on the island, but meal at nearby Bibi's was amazing. Would stay hear again if vis8ting the island again.

Perfect if you want to be Central without Town
Great location, easy water taxi to the main town. Stay right over the water, only just be aware that you can hear the water taxis going back and forth..but that is also part of the ease of transport.

Exceptional 10.0
Home on the water
We stayed at El Faro Del Colibri for four nights during the first part of February. It was an unique experience sleeping on the water. A small nuisance for the sensitive could be the water taxis speeding by nearly all hours of the day and night. But that is a matter of opinion. At times, we enjoyed waving to those in the boats and also enjoyed the swaying of the home as a result of the boat's waves. When we revisit Bocas Del Toros, we will happily stay at El Colibri. We enjoyed being on the small island versus Bocas town. It is a short $2.00 boat taxi ride for a couple to travel back and forth. Everyone on the small island is pleasant and welcoming. We were even invited to a poker night by a group of locals at a nearby pizza cafe. Wifi was decent, showers were warm, and we had a little refrigerator in our room. I would recommend more shelving in the bathroom for convenience. But overall, we loved our stay.
