My wife and I spent 2 nights here during our short stay in Bocas. The room was clean and of nice size. The bathroom was very nice with a "Rain" shower head. Water pressure was good. The hotel was a couple of blocks from the "main" commercial district, but that was a plus in our estimation. It was quiet and... More

We stayed just one night here since we had an early Air Panama flight the next morning. We were greeted by Carmen, the GM, and she took great care of us. The room (103) was very modern, as the bathroom has upgraded fixtures and travertine tile. The bed was really comfortable and it was a nice touch to have fresh... More

We were touring Panama for 10 days and our last stop was Bocas. We stayed in many really rough hotels. This place was INCREDIBLE. We walked in and saw the fresh coffee beans in the rooms and knew we picked the right place. We stayed two nights and just loved it. Friendly staff, clean rooms, comfy bed, nice private patio,...

Great experience, staff is really friendly and helpfull. The hotel is located on main street therefore you have easy access to the ferry, water taxis and bars/restaurants. Rooms are really spacious and clean as well as their bathrooms, I definitely recommend Palma Royale if you are planning on going to Bocas del Toro.

This hotel was clean, quiet, comfortable, and wonderfully decorated. I Loved the large bathroom, the large shower and the awesome tile work! We enjoyed having a comfortable deck to sit on in the evening, looking out over the ocean (hotel sits across the small street from the water). The staff were all really helpful, including the breakfast staff. (Breakfast was... More

Very good location right on the main drag and not too far from ferry. Nice looking hotel. Reasonable bar. Included breakfast nice. Rooms were nice, but the only thing that let it down was attention to detail of decor. With some repair work they could be excellent. e.g. mildew on tiles, limescale on shower head, cracking plasterwork, wonky lightfittings... could... More

We stayed in the penthouse four nights while in Bocas. My communications with the hotel prior to arrival were always prompt and courteous. We really enjoyed the hammock and views from the wrap around balcony. The two bedrooms and two bathrooms were spacious and we all found the room very comfortable. It was great that breakfast was included. The waitress... More

The hotel is beautiful and clean! We had a balcony facing the water which was lovely. The office staff was very friendly, but the breakfast waitresses were so mean that my husband was scared to ask for anything!! We found this to be true all over Bocas, but we just accepted the fact that it was nothing personal. I would... More

Palma Royale was one of our more luxurous hotels during our holiday, and we stayed here for 2 nights. The room was quite nice, and well airconditioned. Also, we think the matresses were quite good. The breakfast was a bit basic, not meeting my expectations given the statue and the rate of the hotel. Also, the personnel appeared to be... More
