Tropical Suites Hotel
Ranked #1 of 13 Hotels in Bocas Town
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 October 2017

We stayed here for two nights and found it to be one of the nicest properties in the heart of downtown Bocas. The only hotels that offer anything nicer are to be found much, much further away in the small surf access areas of Playa Bluff. For convenience, Tropical suites is right on the main street, easy access to boat taxis and as many tour companies as you can handle. Local bars and restaurants are all nearby and within walking distance. The hotel is clean, comfortable and has spacious rooms. We stayed on the first floor, ocean view, across from their private dock - no complaints and would definitely stay again. For breakfast we didn't use hotel vouchers but instead ate at a place just down the street that did a good cook to order breakfast each day.

Room Tip: Water view is best, three choices 1st, 2nd or 3rd floor each with a price increase based on which fl...

This was our first trip to Bocas and Tropical Suites made it special. Super clean, great location and wonderful/helpful staff. We had the Starfish Suite and my wife loved it. Close to shops and restaurants. Staff helped with tour and fishing reservations, restaurant recommendations and area info. Breakfast coupons are supplied, MK is closed, we recommend Buena Vista and Cafe Mar, Be Good was not that great.
Free internet. Not pet friendly.
Already scheduled our return visit.

Room Tip: Choose the water view if possible

Stayed here for a couple of days. The hotel, the setting and the rooms are all lovely.

However, there were a few issues with the staff that irritated us.

On checking in, there was an outstanding balance which our tour company owed the hotel, but reception insisted that I pay that balance now. After getting out my booking confirmation and being quite forceful in the end they realised their error.

The booking included breakfast, but again reception initially claimed that this wasn't the case, and again I had to get out paperwork and be visibly annoyed to rectify this. Not major issues, but annoying!

No complaints about the hotels location - tour companies and bars are all around.

Hotel has a breakfast deal with Cafe del Mar - get a voucher from reception and use it!

I stayed here for 5 nights with my daughter and have left with a very high opinion of both the hotel and Bocas.
The hotel is in a great location in the centre of town and right on the sea. For the town it is an upmarket hotel with comfortable rooms with exceptional aircon. Wifi coverage is very good.
There is no breakfast served at the hotel but vouchers are issued to eat at two local restaurants.
For excursions boats will pick you up from the hotel pier.
Staff were very very helpful and friendly with lots of smiles.
Loved this place and can't wait to return
