really nice place with an amazing room and nice view. Comfortable room and nice a clean bathroom. Only problem the staff is not polite and very unfriendly. We are Spanish speaker but also with this they really sounds not welcoming you and not interested in giving you support and information.

As guest satisfaction is a key priority at our hotel, this is uncharacteristic of our staff and Management will promptly address this matter. Thank you for visiting us.

Bocas has tons of properties right over the water -- Tropical Suites is one of the best, right smack in the middle of town with great access to water taxis, regular taxis and walking distance to all the restaurants in town.

Tropical Suites is an oasis of comfort in the hustle and bustle of Bocas del Toro. Most rooms are overlooking the water and are spacious with a kitchenette or full kitchen.

We booked and confirmed our 3 rooms at this hotel for the weekend after Christmas.

Dear Jenny, Please accept our sincere apologies for this unfortunate incident. This overbooking situation was caused by an interface glitch (since rectified) in our reservation system which we did not catch immediately during the holiday season rush. As a result, there was a delay in notifying you. We are very disappointed that we were unable to locate a suitable alternative...

Bocas Town is very small, and this hotel is in a great location. The hotel staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Rooms are basic, but spacious and clean with TV, WiFi and Air Conditioning.

We just got home from our first stay in Bocas Del Toro at the Tropical Suites, and I’m already searching for return flights in a few months. It was that good. The hotel is rated #1 on the island for a good reason: the rooms are well appointed, it’s waterfront, close to everything (as in stones-throw close) and the owner...

After a nightmare stay at a resort on an island off Bocas Town, we were so delighted to enter the lobby of Tropical Suites.

We stayed 3 nights on the water side. It was a perfect view with plenty of space on the covered porch. Hotel is just away from the noise of town, yet very short walking distance to the action. Rooms were very comfortable and roomy. The staff was very friendly and accommodating for anything you needed.
