We stayed here for three nights in March 2013 in room 413. We had views of the ferry terminal and the ocean, very nice balcony that wraps around the room. Nice spa-like bathroom with amazing shower, comfortable bed (except it seemed to be covered in plastic). I was sick when we were staying here so spent a lot of time in the room and can definitely say it was very comfortable and quiet. Having a kitchen and full size fridge was great, and the breakfast included was pretty good but got a little old by the third day. The hotel is very clean and nice, there looked to be a lot of crappy hotels in this town so be careful where you book. The Tropical Suites and the Bocas Del Toro Hotel both also looked very nice just from walking by them and were closer to the center of town. The Palma Royale was great for us because we didn't want to be in the loud part of town and wanted a kitchen and balcony. Even though it's not in the center of town or on the water, it's still very very close (5 min walk). The restaurant el ultimo refugio was a 2 minute walk from the hotel and was excellent, highly recommend it. There is also a nice grocery store next door.
The staff was responsive and friendly, I highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in bocas town, although if I had to do it again I would stay only one or two nights in Bocas Town and longer on isla bastimentos or a more remote spot on isla colon or something for the rest of the time. Bocas Town has some good restaurants and fun bars but the beaches and scenery is much nicer in the other areas - in my opinion.
