I visited with my friend and her mother and we all loved this hotel. The customer service was absolutely amazing including helping us with all of my friend's mother's needs. We had a balcony with a great view of the water and a very nice breeze. I was able to keep the balcony door open all night and with the...

The hotel is well-located for restaurants and bars etc. We booked the luxury suite, but it was not especially luxurious. It was advertized as breakfast included, but breakfast consisted of eggs or eggs or eggs. You could have bacon or fruit juice added, but you had to pay extra. Bacon was priced at $1 per rasher!

Firstly the girls at the front desk were very helpful and friendly, upon arrival they did a big bag of laundry for $5 and within 2 hours it was back. I had been travelling for 10 days so this was amazing. I had room 301 which is a luxury suite and is very large. It was immaculate and clean with...

I felt quite spoilt having this as my home base for two weeks. The rooms are all nicely decorated, very up to date and clean. The bathroom was really very stylish in fact. No complaints at all. My favorite thing is the fresh coffee beans, grinder, and filter machine so I can make myself great coffee in the morning.

This is the first room I've been in that supplied coffee beans and grinder for coffee. You can't drink the water here so they supplied one bottle for the first night only. The wifi wasn't very good and was on and off, mostly off. Check the sound of the a/c before accepting the room. I think our room had the...

Just returned from 4 nights in Bocas and wanted to base myself in town so that I could plan day trips out to the various islands and beaches. This is a good spot as it's right next to the ferry from the mainland and at the end of the main street. I had one of the basic rooms on the...

We spent only one night here before heading out to the islands. Our room was perfect. We were in the luxury suite. It is very large, clean and had everything you would need if you were staying longer. It is across the street from the water but still had a nice view. Very comfortable balcony shaded by a large palm...

I've spent many years back and forth from Chicago to Bocas Del Toro Panama! It's probably one of my favorite destinations. When I think of what I look for in a hotel, (clean, secure, helpful staff, views of the ocean, ambiance, etc) Palma Royale fits all my needs. This is my third stay at Palma Royale and I absolutely love...
