We loved it here! We had room 301 (I believe a deluxe suite). The view and balcony were everything I hoped for. Great living space, large bathroom and comfortable bed. The kitchenette was perfect for us. The breakfast was very good and the hours they served breakfast was very accommodating. It is located on the main street with a lot...

Palma Royale is an ideal base for exploring Bocas, it's ideally located at the end of the main street with all the restaurants, bars and water taxi just minutes walk away. The room (deluxe suite) was amazing, we had a kitchen/ living room, separate bedroom, bathroom and wraparound balcony with both a town and sea view. Overall a great hotel...

We just stayed 3 days at hotel Palm Royale. It was the best experience we we've had when vacationing. The customer service was outstanding from the front desk the manager (Carmen) and the rest of the hotel staff. They make you feel like home. This hotel is the best on bocas del toro.

My wife and I spent one night in a deluxe suite - room #402. It was very spacious, modern and clean. Wish we had stayed there longer. The front desk employees were very helpful and spoke good English. Initially I thought it might be a little out of the way but it's not (it only takes about 10 minutes to...

We were originally booked for three nights in a lodge on Isla Caraneras, but lasted one night there due to the sand fleas (chitres). When we saw Palma Royale's "walk-ins welcome" sign, we thought we'd inquire - and we're so glad we did! For an extremely reasonable rate, we were booked into an open-concept suite on the 4th floor, with...

Very nice hotel in Bocas - my one tip is to book an upper level room with the sea view -- the upper level rooms are really superior than the ground level and worth the price difference -- we moved from a ground level room the first night to an upper level suite and some of the suites even have...

One of the better hotels on the island. Not all staff knows English so it was hard communicating at times. Breakfast was small with one cup of juice and no water, went outside to complete the meal. Stayed on the ground floor so got no view. Higher floors gets a view of the water. Do not use their laundry service...
