“Fantastic”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

My family and I had such a great 5 days in this hotel. The rooms are spacious with great attention to detail and I thought the fresh coffee beans with grinder on hand was an awesome addition. The staff are friendly and helpful which made our stay even more pleasing.

For the price I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel.

The Royle Palm was great! Carmen was wonderful!! Rooms are clean and well appointed. Great happy hour! Breakfast included, portions are not that big, but you can ask for double portions, or ask for two different items. Nothing but great times & memorries!

After staying in a old run down hotel, we saw the Hotel Palma Royale so we went to enquire about their rates and they gave us a good price on a really nice room. It was heaven compared to where we were staying and in fact the rooms are really very elegant. We had a balcony with a view of the ocean and the bathroom is fabulous all in Travertine marble! They have whole bean coffee and a grinder so you can make your own fresh coffee! And air conditioning which can be a good thing in Bocas. We liked it so much we are already planning our next trip there! Bocas is a really fun place to visit and there are a lot of different things to do while you are there. We will definitely be coming back to stay at the Hotel Palma Royale!

From the minute I stepped foot on the hotel the service was impeccable. Carmen was so helpful. We were lucky enough to stay in the penthouse and WOW what views from the fourth floor. Our room was HUGE and very clean with WIFI throughout the hotel. They offer free breakfast which the eggs are amazing. The hotel is English speaking friendly. Bocas Bob was very helpful in selecting / recommending local restaurants and activities for us. What a great place to stay, highly recommend it to all.

Room Tip: If you have 2 couples or a large family take over the penthouse.

I recently visited Boca Del Toro with a group of friends. We were there for 4 days and we stayed at the lovely Hotel Palma Royale. If you are heading to Bocas and looking for a 5 star hotel experience without paying a 5 star cost then Hotel Palma Royale is it. The rooms are amazing, clean, have great AC and WiFi not to mention great views. The hotel is fairly new so everything felt fresh and the design of the rooms made you feel right at room with a little bit of island flair. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating with whatever we needed, from helping us set up boats to go island hopping (which is a must do) to setting up massages for some of the group with a local massage therapist on the island while others got surf lessons, also set up by the hotel staff. The hotel also has a bar/restaurant that serves an American style breakfast (which is included with your room) every morning. As well as a great happy hour to enjoy after your days activities with a staff that I can assure you is the friendliest on the island. I will visit Hotel Palma Royale again and will definitely recommend it to anyone looking to travel to Panama!

I just got back from 4 days in Bocas at The Palma Royale! We loved our stay there! The staff, food, service, overall experience was great! The front desk helped us book the best boat tours to all of the local islands, surfing trip, snorkeling tours, even in-room massages! Plus, great drinks at the bar :)

Room Tip: I would recommend a room on the 3rd or 4th floor because the view outside the balcony is better the...

One of the most enjoyable experiences I have ever had. Rooms were spotless, beds comfortable, spacious, great AC and felt like I was at home with the level of service from both the staff and the owner himself who manages the property to a T. I spend countless months of the year traveling and living in similar hotels and this is by far the best. This is a Class A establishment and I would and will continue to recomend it to anyone traveling to this region of the country.
