We did find the rooms dark but that didn't bother us at all. No problems with shower pressure or hot water. Bathrooms were really clean. The service was alright, can't...

We stayed one night and were impressed. Our bottom floor room had a nice patio out the sliding glass door, there was a small refrigerator in the room along with a safe, hot water and air conditioning. The room did have a musty odor that we got used to and the air conditioning helped reduce. Staff were lovely and very...

Clean and spacious room with great views from the balcony. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfasts were amazing, starting with a generous serving of fresh fruit. Location was ideal with close proximity to many restaurants.

Stayed 1 night to be close to the airport (5-10 minute walk). Check-in was super easy & we were able to get in a little early. Website says breakfast served 7-11, but we were told it was at 7:30 (too late for us taking one of the early flights out in the am). Pros: Great staff Comfortable bed Great AC...

I had a lovely stay at Hotel Palma Royale. The room was very spacious and very quiet, I had a great sleep after a very hectic trip. The staff was kind, they coordinated everything from taxi rides to boat excursions, even had some good recommendations for dinner and beaches. Rooms on ground floor have no sea view, but have little...

After spending 3 nights in noisy Panama City, this resort was a relaxing treat. A catamaran pulled in as we checked in and we were able to book them the next day for a tour. Staff was chatty and very friendly and spoke english. The breakfast was great, room was big with coffee for the mornings. Next door is a...

Pros: the staff was very nice and helpful. The room was very clean. Breakfast included was very good. Cons: Pics look like hotel is right on water but across street from loading docks. When sitting downstairs eating, both mornings we had fuel trucks in front of us. Showers were not very strong and not hot.

The room was quite large and very clean. Every thing was updated, cold A/C, great shower and delicious breakfast. Sandy was one of the people at the front desk and she was SO nice! Sandy recommended restaurants and coordinated boat rides for us. The town of Bocas is small so even though the hotel is located at the end, it...
