I was looking for a nice quiet hotel during my stay in Bocas del Toro. I'm quite an avid traveller and Im used to big hotel chains; so I was a little bit skeptical. To be honest, Tropical Suites was great. It is facing the sea; and very quiet at night. But it is in the middle of everywhere in... More

Dear Mcalman, Thank you for your review and comments. Our team is in the process of addressing the items that you mentioned, as we strive to maintain the highest standards. The water pressure was restored to full efficiency, as one of our main pumps required servicing. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. Sincerely, Tropical Suites Team More

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
