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

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

Just returned from a four night stay in Bocas at Tropical Suites. Everything was perfect. From the time of check in until we left. It was clean and well maintained. The front desk had the most pleasant ladies who helped with everything from taxis to reservations. I will return here again.

From start to finish this hotel property has been a blessing. Our continued contact with the Owner and his staff made our trip one to remember. The room was impeccably kept at all times. What ever we needed was there for us. The breakfast vouchers each day gave us a choice of places to eat. The stay was one we... More

Location is top. The room is nice (well equipped kitchen, though old and poorly kept refrigerator). Bathroom is good. No restaurant, but you get vouchers to a few restaurants next door, no problem. The problem is the noise. The front desk was noisy with the staff speaking loudly and listening to music all night (it was louder than the discos... More

Hello Thue P, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review and thank you for the nice comments. My utmost apologies for the noise, this is not a common occurrence on any floor at Tropical Suites and it is completely unacceptable. We also heard about this from another guest that was staying in the hotel while... More

One night in Bocas was made very special by staying at Tropical Suites. My partner and I have lived in Bocas del Toro for almost three years now, but rarely stay in the town itself. But it was Vanessa's birthday and we wanted to do something special. The suite we booked was comfortable, clean and very luxurious. With a full... More

We stayed at the Tropical Suites for 12 days and have to tell you the people who work the front desk are as nice and helpful as can be. They will help you with planning excursions in and around the island as well giving great advice as to what is going on during the week. We stayed on the street... More

This is the place to stay in Bocas if you want high-end (for Bocas) accommodations. First of all the front desk staff at this hotel are truly wonderful. They did all that they were supposed to do, with a smile, but also helped call water taxis (arrived a few minutes after they called) told us where to find things in... More
