The stay in dolphin bay cabaña was very special and definitively a highlight of our trip. From the moment we stepped out of the boat till the moment we left we felt very welcome in the familiar atmosphere - it was like staying with friends. Every night the family cooked delicious meals for us which we enjoyed together with them.
Espectacular. El lugar te deja sin palabras.. Especialmente al amanecer, la madre de Jelle nos dió un trato familiar y la presencia de Karim enriqueció mucho la estancia. El único inconveniente es la ubicación, alejada de donde parten los tours en bocas town, lo que te obliga a pagar transporte adicional algo caro... Volvería sin dudarlo!!
J'ai passé un excellent séjour à Dolphin Bay Cabanas.
Tout est super, et malgré la météo un peu pluvieuse le temps y est passé très vite.
l'endroit est magnifique, les bungalows sont construits dans un jardin, face à la mer et tout est très bien entretenu. tout est comme sur les photos, en vrai ;-)
Toute l'équipe est très accueillante et attentionnée .
Repas excellents et variés;
Un grand merci à Jannecke pour son accueil et sa disponibilité durant tout mon séjour.
Bises à toute l'équipe
We had an amazing time at Dolphin Bay Cabanas. Our host was very helpful and is fluent in a couple of languages. She had good advice what we could do and made the arrangements for us. But everything was so peaceful that staying on the Island Reading on one of the three Docks was Perfect too. The Cabanas were nice and basic and had moscito nets over the beds. Every day Jannecke cooked a brilliant breakfast and a marvelous dinner. Dolphin Bay is Pretty far from Bocas and it Takes Money (~30$-40$ each way) and Time to get there but it's totally worth it. One of our best stays on our Trip.
I absolutely loved my stay here. It is off the beaten path and a wonderful place to just relax and enjoy the nature surrounding you.
Hospitality At Dolphins Bay Cabanas
From the Chengs
After all the excitements in Bocas Town, my wife and I took a water taxi to Dolphins Bay, a great place to watch dolphins from water taxi or on land. When we arrived at Dolphins Bay in pouring rain, a lady and two workers greeted us at the pier side with umbrellas in hand, and one guy moved our luggage from water taxi to our cabana. After a brief orientation at our cabana, the lady cooked delicious lunch and dinner for us using local fresh ingredients. In the spacious dinning hall, the lady told us that she and her son Jelle are the hosts and that her workers commuted to work by boat or canoe.
Our cabana was comfortable and clean. We enjoyed watching colorful birds and beautiful flowers near our cabana. The next day, we joined a jungle tour free of charge. A Spanish-speaking local guide showed up with a hunting knife in his right hand. This guide and three dogs escorted us in the jungle and made us feel safe all the way. Our guide spotted a sloth on a tree top and found a mature coco ready for harvesting and chocolate making.
After three days of peace and quiet, we bid farewell to Dolphins Bay. Our farewell party at the pier side consisted of the lady host, three dogs, and dolphins swimming in the Bay.
What an amazing place and what amazing people. This guys have real heart. Just beautiful. The environment from sea to jungle, spectacular. Nice to get off the grid for a few days of R and R.
The location is beautiful, tranquil, and relaxing. We enjoyed getting to know Jelle and his family - taking hikes through the jungle, political talks overlooking the water, and yummy meals together.
Our cabin was great but it's true what they say - beware of the bugs!!!
Overall, would definitely recommend for a relaxing time and hope to make it back some day.
Amazing place! Special for rest, be in contact with the nature and have fun. All the hosts are very nice persons. You feel like in paradise! Totally recommended!
Beautiful place. Very serene. The cottage is wonderfully deaigned and immersed in nature. If you are looking for peace and quiet, away from the crowds, this is a great choice. You get the benefit of a house and a wonderful property around. We also very much enjoyed our dinner conversations with Jelle and his family. They are great people with great values.
Jelle and Diana are a very nice couple and enjoyed the cabin very much.
