We have stayed in about 4 other hotels in the heart of Bocas Town over the years ... and Hotel Palma Royale is the best hotel that we have stayed in near the center of Bocas Town. We were pleasantly surprised at the large comfortable rooms. Nice rooms. Clean. Up to date. Well maintained. Great location in the middle of town ... so you can walk to dozens of restaurants and shops.

After reading many reviews, I chose Palma Royale and I'm so glad I did. The price was right compared to many other places. The staff are pleasant and accommodating. I used to sit in the "swing" on the top floor veranda to watch the life of the town. Hotels closer to the "center" of town have a problem of night music because Bocas is known as the party center of Panama. My room was on the ground floor with a little patio to sit or hang clothes to dry. The room was comfortable enough, good bed, good cable TV. The bathroom was huge but taking a shower meant the water sprayed everywhere. Many clean towels took care of that. Good pressure and always hot water. The attached restaurant Chez Ugo, run by an Italian man very knowledgeable about the country always had good food and friendly service. The location of this hotel at the far end of town is only a block from a big department store like Costco that sells everything from soup to nuts and liquor. There is a very highly recommended restaurant El Ultimo Refugio just around the corner and the best pizza by far across the street at Iguana!

The story of our stay at Palma Royale is a strange but great one. We arrived a day early in Bocas with no accommodation booked for the night so decided to spend some extra money and stay at a nicer hotel. Our first night in the standard room we booked was excellent, the room was spacious, clean and the beds were very comfortable. We checked out and arrived at our pre booked accommodation which was in appalling condition. We ended up leaving and returning to the Palma Royale to see if they had any rooms. They were able to book us into a standard for one night but only had a luxury suite available for the second. When we said it was too expensive for us, they offered a lower rate to keep us for two nights. Because we had to swap rooms, they allowed us to keep our baggage in the original room and swapped it over for us. The cleaning ladies even placed our drinks in the fridge for us during the swap. The luxury suite was an amazing room, with a kitchen, lounge room area and private balcony overlooking the ocean. The ladies at reception were extremely accommodating and helpful during our stay, they made our time in Bocas so much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend the Palma Royale to everyone!

We stayed in this hotel in December 2018. We have chosen it because it was in town center, right on the main street and close to the piers to embark to visit the other islands. The rooms were well furnished, comfortable, clean and with great wifi. The property offers only bed and breakfast included in the price, but they have the restaurant managed by an Italian cook, so there is an excellent cuisine for delicious dinners.
