Playa Bluff Lodge Review

It's still pretty remote out here in Playa Bluff, but this comfy place is an oasis at the end of a rugged road. Rooms are bright and cheery, with sliding patio doors. All come with king-size beds; one room has an additional queen-size bed. The entire place is solar-powered and you'll shower with collected rainwater. The Belgian herpetologist-owners—you'll find red arrow frogs throughout the gardens, but any snakes (nonvenomous) stay reassuringly on the far fringes of the large property—are a wealth of information about Bocas' rain forests. You'll be provided with boots and a cell phone if you wish to go hiking; the cell phone comes in handy if you want to make a trip into town, but most guests are content to stay here. A separate on-premises business, the Playa Bluff Lounge, serves as the hotel's seafood restaurant.
