We stayed 3 nights on the water side. It was a perfect view with plenty of space on the covered porch. Hotel is just away from the noise of town, yet very short walking distance to the action. Rooms were very comfortable and roomy. The staff was very friendly and accommodating for anything you needed.

We recently stayed six nights at the Tropical Suites. Florence and the rest of the staff took great care of us at this very clean hotel. Since we were new to Bocas, we relied on the staff for a lot of advice all of which they gave generously including helping us find a doctor when my wife became ill. Overall,... More

We recently went to Bocas for four days and stayed at Tropical Suites. We found the place everything that it was advertised as. Bocas town is a pretty beat up place, so it was nice to come back to the hotel in the evening and enjoy the nice rooms. It is on the pricey side for Bocas, but we felt... More

It is a great hotel... safe, clean, neat very close to restaurants, pubs, shops. The staff is really helpful and polite. The rooms are large and clean. It is very close to everything you may need in Bocas. I highly reccomend it.

Tropical Suites was the highlight of Bocas Town. The employees all bent over backwards to please... all we had to do was ask. Probably the most helpful and unexpected was with travel arrangements by the manager... around the island, hotels, travel to David and Panama City. The only thing we found wrong with the room was the refrigerator... it worked... More

My family and I stayed for 4 nites in the summer. We opted for the city views and it was always fun to watch. After seeing the ocean in every other place we stayed we found it interesting and not noisy on the city side. Very clean rooms. nicely decorated and helpful staff. Very nice owners. I would highly recommend... More

First I want to cover Bocas del Toro and Panama City. It can be a complicated place to get in and out (and around) of and has many choices for activities and accommodations. Typically it is best to fly a major airline into Panama City, Panama - Tocumen Intl. (PTY), then drive across town in a taxi ($40) to Albrook... More

Hello Vivrelemonde, Thank you very much for staying with us at Tropical Suites and taking the time to leave a review of the town and hotel. It seems there may have been some confusion about where you were staying with regards to the comment about a change in ownership or our daughter running the hotel. We have owned and operated... More

We stayed at Tropical Suites last year and loved it so we stayed there this year during our Bocas del Toro visit. This is the place to stay at in Isla Colon. The ocean view suites are worth the price. This time around I got to experience the hotel's great service. We experienced a blackout which I guess is not... More

The airconditioning in room 7 did not work properly. As such, we got little sleep. We complained to the front desk. They did nothing to fix the AC but just argued that it was working fine. It did not work fine and nothing was done to correct the matter.

We just returned from 6 nights at this hotel with our 12 and 14 year old children. While expensive by Bocas standards, it wasn't by US standards! We had the top floor Executive Suite which included 2 bedrooms and a big kitchen and living room. Best of all, a huge terrace overlooks the water but none of the bedrooms overlook... More
