Hello Mosskm, We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Tropical Suites and appreciate your feedback. While rare, power outages do occur, as our island is fairly remote and the infrastructure is still developing. Our hotel's hallways and common areas had cutover to backup power but this does not currently extend to our guest suites. There was a private... More

If you are staying in Bocas then you must stay at Tropical Suites. 1) The female reception staff & Mayra are so helpful and friendly.

We booked Tropical Suites based on TripAdvisor reviews, it was a little more expensive than we wanted to pay but we were really happy we did. Location is great, next to nice waterside restaurants and just far enough away from the late night bars to ensure us oldies got our sleep. Rooms are lovely, good A/C, wifi, fridges, big bathrooms...

This hotel is definitely the best option in Bocas del Toro for anyone willing to relax. Rooms are very spacious and clean, the wifi is great, the staff is nice and the hotel itself is the nicest building in Bocas del Toro. They do not have a restaurant or any F&B point but there are so many options around that... More

Hello Warren C, Thank you for the kind review. While very central, we are located in one of the quietest areas and just steps from the amenities of main street. Our hotel is one of the few concrete buildings on the island and this helps maintain a quiet and comfortable environment for our guests. Warm regards More

This hotel was excellent. It is right on the water close to the main part of town but not noisy. The day we arrived it was pouring rain but the hotel was less than 30 seconds walk from the boat dock. The rooms had wifi and air-conditioning, were spacious with a small kitchen that was appropriately stocked (utensils, pots/pans). The... More
