“So... so...”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

For the price we paid, it's not the best hotel you can get, but probably the best you can get in the island though. I don't know if it was just my room, but the AC wasn't really cooling. The remote control for the TV wasn't working either. Though I guess those are minor complaints since one is not really staying in the hotel room all day. Service-wise: Hotel staffs were really nice. Location: Very convenient since it has its own mini-dock. Although it doesn´t has its own restaurant, the hotel worked an agreement with a cafe beside it for breakfast. It´s not that bad, since it's quite nearby and the breakfast was good also. In overall, everything was just alright, but then again, for the price, one can probably get something more on the classier side.

Room Tip: Try asking for a room in the second or above rooms. You get some more view at least, whereas you cho...

This was our second trip to Tropical Suites. The hotel is impeccably maintained, and the location is perfect. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the recommendations made for restaurants were perfect. Jamie, one of the owners, is a delight to work with, and her selection of captains to take us on island excursions was great.

Room Tip: If you can spend a few more dollars for your suite, get a room overlooking the water.

We stayed at Tropical Suites for a month in January/February 2013 and it is just a great place. In many ways, the hotel is the embodiment of the hotel's owners, Chip and Jamie - it is friendly, well maintained, thoughtful and good looking. The hotel also benefits from having really good and helpful staff. It is definitely worth splashing out a bit more for the ocean view suites - the view is worth the extra investment.

Room Tip: Get the ocean view suites

This was definitely one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in and the owners were especially nice!
We traveled to Panama to get an idea what it would be like to maybe rent a place to stay for a couple of months. We did a tour and visited many places. I have to say that Bocas Del Torro was a very pleasant place. The hotel definitely won me over. We only spent one night, but, would have stayed longer had we not be with a tour group. It was a very quiet, clean and beautifully decorated place. The room was very spacious and outfitted with everything you need. The bathroom was very big with two sinks and plenty of storage space for your toiletries.
We talked with the owners at length and they were very gracious.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side have a view of the water. There is also a fabulous penthouse suite on site...

The manager and his crew were awesome from the minute we arrived until the second we checked out
We travel a lot but when the manager had difficulty with cabs reliability when setting up our transportation to the airport.............he took it upon himself to take his own car and drive us to the airport himself................
This was definitely over and above service..................He made sure our stay was without
flaws..................
The rooms were impeccably clean and always supplied with comfort items
You guys really deserve high marks

My husband and I stayed three nights at this comfortable hotel. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The ocean view was great. We enjoyed watching the the water taxis and other boats from our private deck. We were located close to all the restaurants and activities. We had a wonderful experience.

We enjoyed our six night stay here. The accommodations were fine and we were happy to have a small, but functional, kitchenette. The staff was helpful. There was a bit of confusion with the free breakfast vouchers. The night staff could not give out the vouchers, and I had to leave in the morning before the morning staff arrived with the vouchers. That is the only thing I would change if given the opportunity.

Room Tip: There is a lot of street noise but the air conditioner muffles most of it. I don't know if all...
