I searched trip advisor before booking a place in Bocas and was not disappointed. We have a street side room that was very spacious and had a small kitchen with a refrigerator. I originally wanted a water view but the street view is very quite and had a balcony. The air conditioner was great and there is a small lounge... More

We had no prior arrangements arriving in Bocas Del Toro so we walked around to view some of the hotel rooms. We found this hotel and our search came to an abrupt stop. We loved it! It was a bit pricier than other hotels in the area, but definitely the best. The rooms are spacious with a king size bed,... More

We walked around and based on reviews on TA, Tropical Suites is really the best in Bocas. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean, and the bed very comfortable. Great waterfront location. It's worth the little extra cost for the water front rooms as it can get noisy in Bocas on the weekends. We didn't hear anything from our room so... More

I was here a few years ago, and LOVED the location. Your tour boat can pick you up in the back of the hotel on their private dock . A great caribbean breakfast is included in the restaurant next door. Some of the rooms have a town view, and others sea view, both with a private balcony.

We stayed here for four nights of our honeymoon, and had a really lovely time. The rooms are clean, and its in a great spot - you can easily walk everywhere. The breakfast was lovely (but took quite a long time in both breakfast options, some days, so give yourself plenty of time if you're going on a trip -... More

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
