“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2011

My husband and I stayed at room 104, standard with a queen bed. We like the location, the room and the bathroom size, the shower, TV set, some employees very attentive. Not so much the size of the bed (queen), the matress cover (makes a paper noise), the wireless internet (slow), breakfast (you can´t be in a hurry), and the room lights (insufficient to read at night). We hate the noise of the employees talking and the noise of washing machine early in the morning (from 7am) beside our room - we didn´t ask to move because we always had to wake up early anyway because we scuba dove (not so good comparing to other Caribbean destination) every morning . So if you stay there and don´t need to wake up early avoid the room 104.

Stayed at the Palma Royale on 2 different occassions recently and enjoyed both stays. the hotel is new with all conveniences, very well located and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. It is more expensive than a lot of other options in Bocas Town, but if you can afford to spend a bit more, it is worth it.

This place was fantastic. My friend and I stayed for four nights. The rooms were spacious, clean, and well maintained. The staff were amazing, especially Carmen the manager. They were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful at any time of day/night, even at 2am when I had a nosebleed, lol. Thanks again!

We decided to go to Boca del Toro for our anniversary and went on line to check out the various hotels. Impressed with the trip advisor comments on Palma Royale I called and was impressed by the friendly and helpful receptionist. We took a chance on Palma Royale Hotel and were glad we did. We had so much fun we extended our stay by an extra day and had a great time. The rooms are super nice, clean, well appointed and spacious. We will definitely be back!

My husband & I stayed 2 nights here without reservations. The rooms are nicely decorated & the beds are extremely comfortable. The hotel is in a great location to everything but far enough away from all the noisy restaurants & bars. Our only complaint is the AC is very loud to run at night. Overall, the staff was super friendly & the breakfast was a great deal for free! We will definitely be back again!!

Room Tip: Make sure the air conditioning is not so loud that it keeps you up at night!

Thanks Melissa and Carmen for a great time!! Went for 4 days stayed 7. Love it the best place in Bocas. Very accomodating our teens loved the French toast for breakfast. The Penthouse view was perfect, spacious and comfortable. Close to every thing and the tours were great. Next year for sure! We will be back.

Room Tip: Red frog zipline - the front desk suggested it and loved it - check Jinel for tour
