Palma Royale was one of our more luxurous hotels during our holiday, and we stayed here for 2 nights. The room was quite nice, and well airconditioned. Also, we think the matresses were quite good. The breakfast was a bit basic, not meeting my expectations given the statue and the rate of the hotel. Also, the personnel appeared to be...

Echo the comments about location (edge of town). Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, nice breakfast and dollar beers for happy hour! Stayed in the penthouse and absolutely loved it - the type of two bedroom apartment I would consider buying it was so nice. Great views, well appointed and very comfortable. The staff are unbelievable!! Very friendly and helpful and went...

Perfect location, on the edge of town, but close enough to walk to everything and very quiet. We were there for Carnivale and once we got back to the room we didn't hear anything. Rooms were beautiful, they had a sitting area and a balcony. Our balcony was overlooking the water, some do not, they are very small but enough...

This was a very nice hotel. Here are some pros and cons: Pros: 1) Rooms are very large 2) Nice spot, close to the action but at the end of a street so it was quiet. We did not hear any loud music at night. There is partial views of the water (2nd floor and higher) 3) Room was clean...

This is a hotel that has very nice rooms, but could be a lot better with a bit more attention to small details. We stayed in a 1 bedroom corner suite for 6 nights. The suite was clean and comfortable and faced the Main Street and the water. The kitchen was usable, but it is difficult to cook at night...

Thank for your comments, positive and negative comments both help us improve our Hotel. The lighting over the stove has never been brought to our attention. We are implementing lighting changes in the rooms with kitchens now. We have Wifi throughout the Hotel, but ideal signal has yet to be achieved on the quaint island of Bocas del Toro. We...

Has gone downhill since Jimmy Buffett slept there. I would pay half of what they charged us for the suite. Granted it's a short stroll from the ferry dock (all the hotels are!), I would blow my $$$ on maybe the Hotelito. The rooms are big, clean,fresh linen/beddings.Breakfast cooked to order (limited meni, no crepesSunday morn).

What can I say. Everything was wonderful about our January 2014 stay here. The rooms were beautiful clean with a small outdoor area, the location was perfect, and the staff was excellent.

Location is great located right on the main strip and the suite is legit awesome. It's 2 bedrooms with a very spacious living area along with a patio + hammock. It definitely has a wow factor when you first walk in. Worth the price if you're willing to splurge a little.
