My wife and I spent one night in a deluxe suite - room #402. It was very spacious, modern and clean. Wish we had stayed there longer. The front desk employees were very helpful and spoke good English. Initially I thought it might be a little out of the way but it's not (it only takes about 10 minutes to... More

We were originally booked for three nights in a lodge on Isla Caraneras, but lasted one night there due to the sand fleas (chitres). When we saw Palma Royale's "walk-ins welcome" sign, we thought we'd inquire - and we're so glad we did! For an extremely reasonable rate, we were booked into an open-concept suite on the 4th floor, with... More

Very nice hotel in Bocas - my one tip is to book an upper level room with the sea view -- the upper level rooms are really superior than the ground level and worth the price difference -- we moved from a ground level room the first night to an upper level suite and some of the suites even have...

This was me and my boyfriend first trip to Bocas and we are definitely planning on going back there. We had such a great time. Before booking with Hotel Palma Royale I did alot of research on the different hotel on the islands. I was very impressed by the reviews and decided to give the hotel a chance. While planning...

One of the better hotels on the island. Not all staff knows English so it was hard communicating at times. Breakfast was small with one cup of juice and no water, went outside to complete the meal. Stayed on the ground floor so got no view. Higher floors gets a view of the water. Do not use their laundry service... More

This was our first trip to Bocas but plan to go back. We enjoyed the comfort of our room at Palma Royale. When planning the trip I wrote emails to a couple hotels in Bocas Town and only Palma Royale wrote back quickly with answers for all my questions. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was nice to have... More

Our room was nice and spacious. We were in 104 a studio room with a patio. It is a bit larger with a nicer bathroom than both 102 or 103 but a smaller patio. The patios are really only useful if you are a smoker as there is no view and little breeze. The patios are up against the wall... More

This was a nice hotel. We had a 2 room suite and breakfast was included. I think all the rooms are suites. The rooms were large and comfortable. The breakfast was made to order. The location was convenient and quiet which is what we were looking for. The front desk staff was helpful in arranging tours. I would recommend this... More

Looks great from the outside, but way less from the inside. Below average rooms and horrible shower. Almost no attendance from staff during breakfast, which was disappointing. Wifi was broken for a few days. All in all, very unimpressed.

We are sorry hear the interior does not match the exterior, we have put as much or more detail into our suites. Our showers are rainwater showers and not city water as are most hotels here in Bocas. I hope you give us another chance on your return to our island paradise Yours, Melissa More

A couple friends and I spent 3 nights at the Palma Royale and enjoyed every minute of it. Our flight got in quite early and the hotel stored our luggage until we were able to check in.
