    Loved our stay in Sand dollar Beach B&amp;B”

    We stayed 5 days with my family in a standard room and in a private lodge. Since the moment we arrived we felt very well hosted by The team at the hotel. The location is very good, It was the best choice for the type of vacation we were doing, boat trips around the islands during the day, and enjoying restaurants at Bocas Town at night. The gardens of the Hotel are gorgeous and worth exploring, we dived into the pool every day. Everything well kept with lots of care. Cherry on top goes to the amazing breakfast Dama and Sharon prepared for us every day, with a lot of attention to detail, variations and food restrictions. Our family was delighted by the properties’ owners Sharon and Mark, lovely and very attentive couple that gave us all the tips to make our travel easier and our stay very comfortable!

    We REALLY enjoyed our stay at Sand Dollar!! Our hosts were kind and welcoming and everything was very clean. The grounds are beautiful and breakfast was fantastic, including that they were very accommodating with our unique dietary needs. Wonderful pool and just across the street from a lovely, swimmable beach. Many other beaches are too rough for swimming. We also enjoyed just relaxing on the porch watching the ocean and swinging in the hammock, not to mention falling asleep listening to the waves. Sharon and Mark arranged a great boat tour for us and are a wealth of information for excursions around the area. It is very easy to get to and from Bocas Town with $1 taxis just outside the gate. I highly recommend Sand Dollar B&amp;B if you are looking for a comfortable, friendly and quiet stay in paradise. We will be back!

    Everything. The best location in Bocas del Toro, close enough to Bocas Town (only $1 taxi or 5&#39; cycling) but not in the middle of the noise. Sharon and Mark were really kind and helpfull. They gave us great restaurants recommendations and even organized a private tour to Cayo Zapatilla. Breakfast is great and room views are stunning. We loved it.

    B&amp;B with a beautiful garden and lovely breakfasts.”

    We loved the nice, big apartment we got. With a big porch with chairs, hammocks and a dining table. They have a garden which looks like a jungle, we saw beautiful birds and even got to see a howler monkey. Every morning Sharon and a lovely lady from Bocas made us a delicious breakfast. Our little boy got spoiled too by getting his favorite fruits. They have a nice pool where you can cool off.
    Everything was great, but we thought it was pricey. There were fans, no AC in our apartment.

    The hosts were excellent. Perfect combination of hospitality and respect of privacy. They helped us find the fastest, cheapest and safest way to our next stop in Boquete (it was new and different than the route I&#39;d researched on line). Breakfast was fresh and delicious and the cook( Duma??) gave me some aloe leaves early one morning when she saw my sunburn. Would definitely stay there again!

    We loved the location because it was right in front of a beautiful beach. The breakfast was fantastic and it filled us up. The room was very big and the AC worked very well. Everything was very clean.
    We found a pretty big spider in our shower, but we understand that this can happen and it is not the fault of Sand Dollar Beach B&amp;B.

    Wow! We loved the Sand Dollar Beach B&amp;B. We were greeted with ice-cold beer and fresh-squeezed juice when we arrived. Kathy and Martine were excellent hosts. We had a beautiful room with an amazing ocean view from our balcony. The breakfasts were outstanding, with tropical juice and delightful homemade entrees. We stayed for 5 days and had a different breakfast each day. The beach is across the street with easy access. We had the pool to ourselves most days. Taxis were plentiful and cheap. $2 to go into Bocastown. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The grounds of the inn are well kept and beautiful. It was hard to leave!

    A peaceful oasis to retreat to after spending a day touring all Bocas Del Toro has to offer.”

    Dama was so wonderful and helpful! The Sand Dollar B&amp;B is such a lush and peaceful Panamanian oasis. I never had to turn on my air conditioner and was lulled to sleep each night by the sounds of the ocean waves and jungle. I absolutely loved being here.

    The ideal hotel, in a beautiful location, with the perfect hosts”

    Sand Dollar is an excellent place to stay, in a beautiful location, with the perfect hosts. The B&amp;B only has 4 rooms but that is the perfect number as Sharon and Mark, the owners, get to know you personally. They are both very interesting people, and are passionate about providing the perfect stay for guests. They have perfected the subtle art of engaging just the right amount, whilst giving you plenty of your own space too. They&#39;re on hand with any questions or queries you may have. The B&amp;B is beautifully constructed and has everything you could need or want. We loved sitting in the chairs and swinging in the hammock, listening to the sea and watching the humming birds. The rooms are equipped with a shower with hot water and great pressure (not to be underestimated in Panama!), a huge bed, a fridge, and all the usual creature comforts. It was very soothing to fall asleep and wake up in the morning to the sound of the waves lapping against the shore just a few yards away. The B&amp;B is really easy to get to, you hop into any of the Taxis in town (they&#39;re all Toyota Hilux pickups), tell them you&#39;re going to Sand Dollar and pay $1 per person when you arrive. The location is perfect; it&#39;s right on the coast and we enjoyed swimming every morning before coming back for a delicious breakfast and then venturing out for the day&#39;s activities. I really can&#39;t criticise our stay at all and would highly recommend staying at Sand Dollar if you&#39;re travelling to Bocas del Toro. Thank you Sharon and Mark for the perfect stay!
    I really can&#39;t find anything to criticise about our stay. We really enjoyed the B&amp;B and the island as a whole. Sharon and Mark made our trip very special.
