Tropical Suites Hotel
Ranked #1 of 13 Hotels in Bocas Town
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 23, 2011

This summer was our second trip to beautiful Bocas, and it was as wonderful and relaxing as we remembered from the previous year. We again attribute part of our love of Bocas to the amazing staff at Tropical Suites. The warm and friendly welcome at the airport sets the tone for the rest of the stay. Jamie, Chip, and the staff pay such great attention to even the small details of making you stay the best ever.

When we stayed at Tropical Suites last year, we thought the hotel was wonderful, but this year even better! They have put in the most wonderful new beds, which I would love to have taken home with me, updated all of the suites with a beautiful new wall color, gorgeous, locally hand crafted furniture and art work, and if that weren't enough, beautiful new linens and window treatments. This is all just the newest updates, the suites already had large flat panel tv's, a small stovetop & fridge, great AC, and a large bathroom with a jetted tub and shower. Definitely the best hotel in Bocas, hands down!

Room Tip: A tough decision. The street side is really fun to watch all of the activity going on in Bocas, but...

the room was nice but nothing special, AC was really bad,stuff did not help so much. zero help, breakfast was terrible for that price for staying in the hotel, it was only eggs, bread, 150ml orange juice and coffee or tea and 3 small pieces of fruits. that is all for 179 USD per night breakfast and every day the same. will never stay in that hotel again. even for 50 USD per night.

Room Tip: with ocean view nothing special, you will not lose so much if you do not take it

Dear Guest,

We are so sorry to hear that you felt this way during your trip to Tropical Suites in August. As we strive to take such care with each and every guest need, we so regret to hear that you had trouble with your air conditioner. Because the staff received no complaints about this during your stay and because our systems were specially designed to manage the heat and humidity in Bocas, we are very surprised to hear of this issue, particularly now. Also, for the breakfast, the menu offers over 10 different options, among which you can elect for more than simply eggs / omelets, including homemade pancakes, freshly baked French toast, huevos rancheros and more. Again, our utmost apologies that you found our facility and our staff anything less than superb as we strive to make each guest feel as comfortable and special as possible.

We hope to be given the opportunity to change your perception in the very near future.

Respectfully,

The Tropical Suites Team

Extremely friendly staff. Super clean rooms. Fantastic Ocean View.

After reading a good bit about Bocas del Toro, specifically the laid back and undeveloped nature of the area, I assumed that in booking a hotel we would be trading modern comforts for access to the pristine beaches that so many rave about. Accordingly, my expectations for our hotel were minimal...

Were we ever surprised as we were escorted to our room in Tropical Suites! A large suite welcomed us with new and modern facilities, a lovely fluffy bed, and an amazing view of the Caribbean Ocean. The staff was always smiling and wanted to make sure we went to all the right places. Breakfast was nice - but service was bit slow.

Also it should be noted that though the hotel does accept Credit Cards, there are many places in the town that do not.

We loved our stay at Tropical Suites and found it to be a gem of a hotel in the small Caribbean town of Bocas del Toro!

From the moment we got out of the van - the trip was enjoyable. Jamie met us at the street to welcome us. She had emailed us back and forth before our arrival, made reservations for our flight to Bocas, had to change our reservations when we got stuck during our travel to Panama, and it just continued to be an great experience. We were treated like we were the VIP guests. The entire staff was there to help with tours, suggestions for dinner, etc. The rooms are very nice - its the nicest place on the island. Large room looking over the water with a kitchenette. Big bathroom with jacuzzi and double sinks. Wonderful.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite facing the water.

This is one of the nicest hotels in Bocas. It has all modern conveniences, and our room had a small kitchen in it, a balcony, and a whirpool bathtub. The beds were comfy and the rooms were clean. The hotel is right on the water and you can catch the water taxis from the back dock. Breakfast is included when you stay there, and it's pretty good. I would definitely stay here again. To my knowledge, there is no pool in the hotel, but you are just steps from the beach which is more fun in my opinion.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the water.

The rooms were cleaned to perfection and very well furnished and maintained.
The beds were so comfy and the sheets crispy clean.
The staff couldn't have been more genuinely friendly and helpful, definitely amongst the best service I've ever received from a hotel and I'm an avid traveller.
It rained for most of the time we stayed here but the rooms were so comfortable and the staff so nice, we didn't mind at all.
The hotel has two kayaks that are quite fancy with clip on seats and seat backs that you can hire by the hour, they also have snorkels for you to use and are very accommodating no matter what it is you want to do.
Hotels around the world could learn a thing or two about customer service alone from this place.
We had a fantasic stay here and if we ever return would not stay anywhere else.
