We spent three nights at the Tropical Suites Hotel, in their "Starfish" room with a balcony overlooking the waterfront, for $326.40 including taxes, and we were happy with the clean, spacious room with a circular window on the floor over the water, which provided a fascinating

My wife and I stayed for ten days in January on our fourth visit to Bocas. Although not the least expensive hotel in Bocas Town, it is certainly one of the nicest and best run. We had a water view room with a kitchenette and balcony overlooking the busy harbor. We were worried

Very nice and comfortable hotel in bocas town on the island colon. The place is just 8 mins from the airport ( if you want you can take a taxi from there it costs 2 dollars) - if you can take the room with sea view - it is quieter than the one on the village and the view from

Hi, I believe the room is called the "Sea Star" or "Starfish" room. I cannot remember, but it was on the ground floor to the right of the reception. Good luck!

When the hotel will have pool?

Hello Ships99, Thank you for your question, with the recent tragedy in Bocas, this is a great question to be addressed. As both Leon and Kimberly mentioned Bocas Town is very small and easily walkable with taxis available from the hotel if needed. As with James, I have also been travelling to or living in Bocas since 1999, and neither myself or my wife have ever felt in danger. As with any new area that you are travelling and exploring it is best to be safe. At Tropical Suites, we have personal relationships with the companies or independent contractors that we use for water or land taxis and tours. We know which guest is at each locations and try to see each guest upon their return to the hotel to hear how the day's adventure went. Bocas is a place to explore beaches, coral, nature and the local restaurants, and as your host we strive to send you to the best of each for a safe and enjoyable adventure! Safe Travels, Chip Tropical Suites

"Rooms with a water view are worth the price"
"definitely get a room on the sea - totally worth it!"
"Waterfront view is worthwhile, probably upper floors are better."
"rooms in the back face the water"
"We liked the city view rooms over the ocean view. Especially sitting on the balcony watching people walk by."
$88 - $173 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
