Spent 4 nights at the Tropical Suites Hotel in Dec 2015. I was kindly upgraded to one of the star fish suites which had a portal to watch the sea below. Wonderful touch. Staff was awesome, very friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable. Only suggestion is to bring ear plugs, sometimes the noise from Bocas Town can get a bit... More

So this review is based on what else is in Bocas. I have been going to Bocas for 30 years and this is by far the best hotel there. The rooms are large and cool, there is a great view, right in the middle of everything but I guess every place could state this. Rooms were clean, quiet and I... More

The hotel was very nice and clean right in front of the water in Isla Colon. It is centrally located and near all the restaurants and tourist connection spots. The staff was helpful and cordial. We got the town view room with balcony, it was a big size room with equally large bathroom. Everything in the room was really clean... More

Here the AC works well, the beds are comfortable, the views are nice, and the staff super helpful. It's location is perfect if you want to be in town (you probably don't).

We had an end water view room on the bottom floor. The room was very clean as was the balcony. Fridge, basic utensils, and small stove in the room. No micro. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a drink(s). The water taxi will pick you up right there, just a few steps out. Front desk staff were all... More

Location is perfect. Rooms are very spacious and my room with the water view and balcony had a kitchenette. It was a nice surprise. I could prepare some breakfast myself.

As far as I can tell, this is the best hotel in town. It's about 75 feet away from where the ferry boats from Almirante land so it's incredibly easy to get to and right down town close to everything.
