Pirate Arts Resort is such an amazing place to stay! Located on Carenero island, it’s the perfect location as it’s a close 3 minute boat ride to town, walking distance to surf, and fully surrounded by the beautiful jungle. The employees are wonderful and made me feel right at home. The resort is also very safe. It’s very clean, cozy, and comfortable. I hope to stay here every time I return to Bocas Del Toro! 5 star experience!!

There are few places in the world where there is a combination of: amazing host, high quality rooms and breath taking views. Pirate arts is definitely a place that has this combination and exceeds all expectations. Not only will you be amazed at the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean, but the hosts will make sure that you are right at home. Thank you Pirate Arts for making my vacations unforgettable, I will forever cherish the service and laughs we shared along the way, and truly hope that anyone that sees this has the opportunity to stay in this wonderful home. The only Cons of visiting Pirate Arts, is that you will wish you never had to leave.

Had a wonderful stay. Private oasis (practically a botanical garden) close to everything, but quiet and serene. One of the quickest walks, to the best surf in the Bocas. Air conditioned rooms, hot showers, and full kitchen are rare finds in Bocas… Never mind in a centre ice location with its own boat dock. Pirate Arts covered it all. Thanks for the stay Karen and see you next trip!! Lots of good insight I found on their instagram @PirateArtsExperience as bookings are done privately

I cannot say enough great things about this place! This was our first stop in Bocas and we were SO happy with our choice. The grounds are beautiful and perfectly located. Anywhere else on Carenero that is towards the south of the island will get a ton of noise from Bocas Town but PirateArts is super quiet (and still only a 2 minute boat ride to the action if you are seeking it). We were made to feel so at home by Karen, the owner, and felt like family by the time we left. It’s also a fantastic place to be to surf - there are multiple paths to the other side of the island where there are three popular breaks for varying levels. Our apartment was equipped with everything we needed to cook up a quick breakfast or lunch. We were very sad to leave and even extended by a night because Carenero was just so perfect! Thanks again to Karen and her team for a wonderful stay. If you want to see more great photos of the property, visit their Instagram at @pirateartsexperience.

PirateArts....what a beautiful place to stay. So relaxing, quiet and convenient ( just a short walk) to restaurants, beach and surf. The buildings are very nice and well kept. The gardens and grounds are beautiful! Short boat taxi ride to town and nearby islands. Nice and calm water to paddleboard and kayak right out your door. We stayed a month and absolutely loved it and would love to stay again. Out of all the times and places I have stayed in Bocas, PirateArts is the nicest and most convenient to surf and beautiful quiet beaches. Karen the owner and her staff were amazing and wonderful! So helpful and friendly and made us feel at home.

PirateArts is the perfect combination of Nature and Creature comforts. Easy to get transport to and from various Islands and hot spots. Good accommodations with full kitchen and plenty of living space. Staff made us feel right at home. Always available to make suggestions and provide local guidance. No downsides with this exclusive resort.

I stayed in Pirate Arts for more than 3 months and I have no words to describe how amazing the service and dedication was, I felt just at home from the beginning. Karen and her team always made sure everything was running well and if I had any problem she resolved it immediately. If you are looking for a place to stay in Bocas look no further, Pirate Arts will surely exceed your expectations, such as it did with mine. O just wish to come back to this place... paradise.

Pirate Arts is perfect for family vacations and also digital nomads. It is perfectly located in front of the crystal waters of the Caribbean sea. It has a very calm atmosphere with an amazing garden. The staff is really friendly and willing to help on anything you need. Definitely the best option in Bocas. Highly recommended:)

Pirate Arts was amazing- short water taxi ride to the island from Bocas. The island gives you a more authentic Panamanian experience. The resort is beautiful with gardens and great lodgings of different sizes to accommodate groups, families couples. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and very clean. The management lives on site and are very friendly and very helpful. Can’t wait to go back!!
