Stayed in 2 different rooms and both were very nice and had a good view liking out! Layout of the rooms was great, refrigerator included. Nice areas for guest to come and hang out too! If I come back, this is where I'll stay. Breakfast is really good too- great options and fresh fruit!

This hotel has a great location. I stayed in one of their least expensive rooms on the ground floor, and was still impressed. The room and bed were very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. And the included breakfast was delicious.

Very spacious rooms! Very clean, great water pressure with a lovely rain shower. Staff was very friendly & helpful. This hotel is located at the tip of the island so it has great views and is in walking distance to all the bars & restaurants on the island. I would definitely stay here again!

This was our first trip to Bocas, so I wanted to pick something in Bocas Town so we were in the middle of everything. The hotel is at the end of the main street in Bocas, which ended up requiring some walking to get to the majority of the restaurants, water taxis, etc. It's a small town so no big...

We stayed one night in January and we loved it. Wished we would have stayed a night or two more! We arrived by boat from Isla Bastimentos, and it was an easy walk to the hotel with our backpacks even in the heat. The room was large and comfortable with great air conditioner, nice bathroom and delicious coffee you grind...

What a great find! We spent 2 nights here before departing on a week-long catamaran trip out of the Bocas Marina. Palma Royale is in a quiet area of Bocas, near the end of the main street with a great view of the waterfront and happenings. They have a cute little front patio/restaurant area where we had breakfast each day...

Easy access to main attractions in Bocas and the center of town, but a little out of the way so that its on a quieter and not so crowded part of the street. Rooms had TV and AC, internet worked well. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was included with our stay and it was super good and made to order. The...

This hotel was better than I had expected. Our room was clean and spacious. We had a bedroom with plenty of wardrobe space, a large bathroom (shower, no bath) and a very generous lounge area with arm chairs, dining table and chairs and a kitchen area with utensils. The breakfasts were not buffet style, you picked from a menu. The...

We were in another hotel our first night in town and were not happy with our accommodations. While out walking we found Hotel Palma Royale and wandered in to talk to the woman at the desk. She gave us a key to go look at a room that was open on the second floor, and it was a beautiful room....

We loved our stay here -- in fact we loved it so much that when they didn't have availability for the full time we were there -- we left for another property and came back for the last few days here! Our 1 BR suite had a great view of the water. The rooms are really comfortable, clean and have...
