We saw that Jimmy Buffet stayed here for a couple of nights. His taste in hotels has proven to be slightly better than ours, so we booked two nights here. We were not disappointed. Everything in this island town is delivered by boat. So there is nothing in excess here. The rooms are moderate in size with a queen size... More

Best hotel in Bocas Town, clean, new, good value Big rooms and confortable beds, friendly staff and great location within walking distance of everything but yet far enough from noises and the party crowd. Decent breakfast included

With Bocas Town crawling with Hostels and Backpackers it was nice to find a hotel that was reasonable ($88 per night) and in a great location. Town is really small so anywhere on main street is a good location. We were next to the gourmet market and very close to the water. Breakfast was included and was more than I... More

Really glad we stayed here. The hotel does not look extremely luxurious from outside but the rooms had everything we needed and were extremely comfortable. We went as a group of 15 people - took the penthouse and 2 other rooms. The rooms were very well decorated and very clean. AC's worked perfectly and the beds were like the beds... More

This was our 2nd trip to Panama & Bocus Del Toro so we knew what to expect. However we hadn't realized it was Carnival week which brings lots of loud celebration. But the Palma Royale is at the end of town and turned out to be a great getaway when needed. The reception and other staff could not be any... More

Hotel Palma Royale was a wonderful hotel for our surf trip. We had three suites on the third floor for our group of 5 guys. The hotel staff could not be nicer or more accommodating to our group. We stayed 10 nights and were always treated great by the staff at the front desk, restaurant, and bar. The staff had... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 12 nights from February 13th to the 25th...it was a great location and the service is excellent. They have 24-hour security, and the breakfast is included in the cost of the room. The rooms are very nice, and they all have some facilities like a fridge or in a larger room,... More

Very clean rooms with good shower. We traveled with friends, renting one economy room and one suite with sitting area where we could all hang out. Worked beautifully. Loved the location, with beautiful balcony view of the water from the suite. Fun to watch kids swimming across the street in obviously the wharf "swimming hole" for local kids and the... More
