This is a small hotel, located within walking distance of everything in Bocas Town. It does not have a restaurant in the hotel but that's not a problem as there are many restaurants within a short walk. Good WIFI, excellent staff, great location, great value. We stayed in an island view room the first night and it was fine, the... More

Great little hotel (and arguably the fanciest) in Bocas Town. We had the starfish suite and it was fun: porthole to see the water below, clean bathroom with a huge shower, spic and span surroundings throughout the hotel. There are a lot of backpacker-type accommodations in town that aren't necessarily the cleanest. This place is a great compromise if you... More

Found the Tropical Suites to be a great place to stay and relax in Bocas del Toro. Situated on the Island of Isle de Colon, the location was perfect to enjoy the small town, its restaurants and tours. The hotel was exceptionally clean, the staff was exceptional and knowledgeable. They answered all our questions Nadiuska and Florencia were especially helpful... More

Very nice and modern hotel option in Bocas Town. Good maid service and cleaning, nice rooms and a location on the main street but slightly off from the busiest nightlife makes for a central but still relatively quiet hotel. Lies on the water and has a dock of its own which is good both for taking water taxis but also... More

We had the great fortune of staying at the Tropical Suites in Bocas. The service was exceptional. There was some error on our room arrangements when we arrived, so they upgrade all 5 of us to the 3 Bedroom Penthouse overlooking the water. It truly was the most awesome view and room we have ever stayed at. We would HIGHLY... More

This hotel is in a great location and in the heart of the action in Bocas town. You pay a premium for the water frontage, but it is worth it. We made a big mistake by arriving in Bocas and thinking we would get a better rate directly at the hotel. I discovered later that we paid USD60 more than... More

Hello J P, We appreciate your review and are pleased that you enjoyed our hotel's central location and water view rooms. Our online rates can change due to market demand and there may be a minor disparity between the different channels, including walk in rates, on certain occasions. We certainly do our best to work with guests on a case... More

Located near the end of the main street. Quiet, but convenient to everything. The room was really quite deluxe, with a delightful king size pillow-top bed that was pure heaven. AC worked great, and the room was very quiet, so our 3 nights there were by far the the best nights sleep we had on our entire 2-month vacation. We... More

Dear L0renaRS, We really appreciate your kind words regarding our room quality and service level. In order to maintain an unobstructed ocean view for our suites/guests and minimize the hotel's noise level, we have partnered with neighboring restaurants that provide an excellent selection of meal options. Unfortunately the town's water system was being serviced the one night you stayed with... More
