The ocean facing rooms are the best option and provides a spectacular view. Room was clean, spacious, comfortable and with AC. Very friendly and supporting staff. Plenty of activities to consider. Close to restaurants and other amenities.

The staff was nice and the hotel was clean. It was very damp and humid in our room despite running the air all night, you are right on the water though. It was slightly unnerving that the back patio doors did not tightly lock and seal but rather locked with a hinge lock. There was a gap between the doors...

We spent 10 days at the Tropical Suites on this, our 2nd stay at this hotel. The hotel is very well located on the waterfront, and we used the dock directly outside of our room several times for water taxi pickups to filming locations in the outer islands. The staff is very courteous, and helpful to their guests, and the...

Had a room with ocean view. Spectacular. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. I would say that this is the best hotel of all those located on the main street of the island. Great place to unwind after the days activities of snorkeling and island hopping.

Location: probably the best hotel in town, right on the main drag and in between lots of restaurants. Room: our room was awesome, really big, little kitchen, large balcony, great pillows. It was all so good! Service: absolutely no complaints, all the staff were great I would definitely stay here again, it was excellent.

When you tell anyone on the island that you're staying at the Tropical Suites, they will say something like "that's the nicest hotel on the island". Well, it's true! Not only are the rooms large and clean, but the staff are just sooooo friendly that it is almost impossible not to love this place. If you can afford to stay...

Comfortable, well appointed room with basic kitchen facilities literally ON THE WATER! Watch water taxis ply their trade, walk 100 feet to the best cafes on Bocas, and bask in the friendly, smiling service provided by the hotel's young but well trained staff. Could not have hoped for more! Pinched ourselves daily.
