This hostel is well located in town, with a lovely staff (fluent and reactive). Rooms are really confortable, the AC is just a bit noisy. They offer great breakfast options in different restaurants in town.

Rooms are very clean, large and modern; appear to be new. Large jetted tub, full kitchen, Corian counters. Walking distance to many shops, food stores, restaurants and the airport if your luggage is not too burdensome, but a taxi is cheap at $2-3. No beaches in this area, but you are right on the water and can often be picked...

This was one of three hotels we stayed at in Bocas. When we first checked in we were thrilled; we stayed in the penthouse 2BR and it was very nice for the price. We had a large balcony on the side of the building that got good sun and still had a view of the water. The balcony has a...

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.

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...
