I loved this place. My boyfriend and I stayed her for 3 nights and have no complaints! It was close to everything the city, the nightlife, the water taxi. The hosts were also very helpful. They told us where to go and bike rentals came with our room! We took our bikes everywhere. All in all I will definitely be... More

I don't understand the mixed reviews here on Tripadvisor; our stay was excellent and the hospitality faultless. This was the best accomodation we stayed in during our trip to Panama. It is homely, safe, clean, well equipped and well run. It is not a hotel, and it does not try to be. You are renting an appartment with shared kitchen... More

The Apartment Hotel was very clean an tidy. Excellent attention from Felicitas, the owner. She has everything planed for you, and if you have any questions, she will happily help you. The location is a few blocks away from the center (really quiet), so it is a 5/10 mins walk/ 2 minutes on the hotel bikes. The kitchen is fully... More

I stayed at the Palmyra 4 nights in December… wish it could have been longer! It is a 5 minute walk from the airport and maybe a 15 minute walk from the main water taxi terminal in Bocas (Bocas Marine Tours). Felicitas (the owner) was there to greet me when I arrived in the afternoon. There is a secure locked... More

What a treat it was to stay at this most charming hostel! Honestly, it felt more like a boutique hotel to me, as no detail went overlooked. Beautiful, clean and tranquil, The Palmyra was just the escape we needed! We felt so welcomed, safe and comfortable there, that we stayed for 7 weeks. The owner was warm, attentive and very... More

We had awesome two weeks at The Palmyra. The room, the bathroom and the kitchen have been spotlessly clean, well equipped and arranged in the best of taste. The garden was like paradise, even hummingbirds came close by. You can use The Palmyra's bicycles free of charge to take a ride to some nice beaches further away. Felicitas is a... More

I stayed for 5 days at The Palmyra in Bocas del Toro, Isla Colon, Panama. This small guest house defies the concept of "small", of "guest" and of "house". It can better be described at comfortable, homey and warm. The owner, Felicitas, has thought of so many thoughtful touches, of convenience, of practicality and decor. And having said that, she...

We have been visiting Bocas for over five years and stayed at a lot of places. This time we were a group of six; my wife and I, daughter and friend, two other friends (adults). SO the room set up was perfect for us. Extremely clean, bright and airy. Fantastic host, I have no idea how the other reviewers could... More

I don't know why other guests had trouble here---I thought Felicity (hope I have spelt her name correctly!) was charming and helpful. The apartments are a bit expensive for the solo budget traveller but immaculate and very comfortable. The house is a short walk from the town centre so there is no noise apart from the deilghtful bird life in... More

After One Day in the Palmyra guest house and starfish beach, I had to ask the very gracious owner, "Felicita", if we could prolong our visit. It was everything I'd hoped for: spacious, homey, quiet, quaint, extremely clean. What I liked most of all was our patio and the comfortable chairs and hammock . It's about a 7 block walk... More
