So a little rocky with the reservation system. They don't use computers mainly, and they have a book. I think there is a computer system in place but the staff prefer the book. Which, is wildly different depending on the staff and the day. I stayed for 4 nights and it was lovely with a few things I had to...

This is a clean comfortable hotel just a few steps from water taxis, best restaurants in Bocas town, bike rentals, and supermarkets. Great spot to kick off all your water adventures. I've read that Bocas town is noisy, and it can be hard to sleep, but I did not find it that way. Carnival was kicking off on my last...

We spent the two days of carnival here so Bocas was busy and noisy but Tropical Suites was a quiet oasis. We had a ground floor room overlooking the bay with a lovely large balcony and could not hear any of the carnival celebrations from our room, but it was so convenient to just walk around the corner into the...

If you are going to stay in Bocas Del Toro, then this is the Hotel. It is located right in the heart of the little town, and also right on the water. you will see many of the other hotels either are dirty or in a poor location. You can take a water taxi from the hotel dock to any...

Overall I give the hotel a Central American 5 stars. We rented the penthouse for a family of 5. For sleeping purposes it has 2 bedrooms and a couch. The couch does not open up. This is would be important to note as it is not explained when they tell you it sleeps 5. There are 2 bedrooms each with...

From check-in to check-out, everything here was perfect. The building itself is relatively new but has been built in a style sympathetic with its surroundings. It is located in the centre of the laid-back and cheerful Bocas town and is also only three minutes away from the airport - but you wouldn't know it. The staff - all of them...

This place is more "glamorous" than we usually stay when we are doing a beachy vacation. But I didn't regret it for a second! Loved the terrace facing the water. Great for wine at the end or anytime of the day. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great locations for being in Bocas Town. There is also a full size kitchen!

Planned a last minute trip to Bocas Del Toro, since we were staying in Puerto Viejo for the week, after recommendations from people that we need to visit there while in the area. So glad we did! The hotel is in a great location, on the water, and about 5 minutes walk from where the boat dropped us off at...

I would give this hotel 5/5 but the only fault was the showers. The cleanliness and quality of the rooms, the outstanding service, definitely worth every penny. The shower (in our room at least) varied in pressure and temperature and was never quite right. Still recommend. If I could have given it a 4.5/5 I would have.

Staid here for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. Room is large with a kitchen and nice and clean. Bed was comfy. Took one star off for lack of services in the hotel. It is basically just rooms and a dock at the back with a small bar that seems to just offer coffee in the morning, not any kind...

Hello Sean, Many thanks for the great review. We are glad that you enjoyed the spaciousness and comfort of your room. As there are many great restaurants and bars nearby, not having these services on site maintains a quieter ambiance for our guests.
