This is the perfect place to stay. It is quiet, comfy, stylish, clean and right on the water. You can walk to everything from the little hotel. Always my first choice in Bocas. Make reservations well in advance.

Very nice finishes and attentive staff. We stayed in the executive suite, which was outstanding. Great beds, A/C in every room. Beautiful full kitchen and nice touches throughout room. Hotel has nice docks. Bar is unused (and unstocked), but who cares because there are plenty on the strip. Cons: lady who runs the front desk (the larger one) was kind... More

Tropical Suites is without a doubt the best hotel in Bocas town.

My wife, son, and I stayed in a room, the bed was King size and the couch pulled out for a bed. This hotel is way nicer than most of the other hotels and hostels. The amenities: the hotel rooms have a kitchen and refrigerator, a small patio overlooking the water, beds are firm and comfortable, the internet in the... More

Tropical Suites is situated centrally in Bocas del Toro, which is not difficult as the whole tourist area is only on about two streets, Bocas del Toro being a small town- more like a village. All the restaurants are a couple of minutes away,yet Tropical Suites manages to be a quiet place, with comfortable beds, a safe, kitchenette...The staff is... More

I stayed here with my mom recently and we both enjoyed the property. We stayed in the Starfish Suite, which is on the first floor with a balcony and a plexi-glass that peeps into the ocean. I think it is a very nice property with beautiful rooms, but still a bit pricey. Location: Location is very central to Bocas Town,... More

Pros: Best location, great rooms, super comfortable beds, very friendly staff. We had a group of 4 men and took the Executive Suite and a regular street front room. The Executive suite is 2 bedrooms, a large living room and full kitchen. It also has a lanai which is great. This was the most expensive rental at the hotel (they... More

Many thanks for the wonderful review! We enjoyed having you as a guest. To address a couple of your points, our nominal early check-in charge is used to cover the added utilities cost (air conditioning, lights and water pump system) when guests arrive early in the day. Secondly, our hotel offers the exact same breakfast plan options as the online... More
