“AMAZING STAY IN BOCAS!”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

The hotel room was impeccable! The touches of the 2 bedroom were just lovely from the bathroom tiles to the amazing wrap around balcony that had an awesome hammock (that my hubs fell asleep in).

The breakfast and real homemade orange juice made every morning extra sweet to wake up to. Mr. Bob the owner is such a delight. We really love this hotel and if we ever come back we will definitely stay again! Thank you for an unforgettable trip!

The room was beautiful with a private balcony but they all face other buildings not the sea. The linens were a bit shabby and the pillow covers weren't the cleanest but the staff was friendly and helpful. They made us feel very welcome. I would stay here again.

I have nothing bad to say about this hotel. The staff was amazing, the penthouse suite was more than you could ask for. The tile in the hotel was beautiful, the views were amazing and to top it all off there was a hammock on the balcony. The owner Mr. Bob was very friendly. I would stay here again if ever in Bocas Town

this place was, throughout my travels of central america, the hospitality highlight. the hotel itself is beautiful - claiming one of the best views in bocas town. the morning breakfast was excellent and the staff was incredibly attentive.

if you are looking for serious . . serious comfort - this is your place

Room Tip: if you are looking for a luxurious bocas experience, the pent house is awesome!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Palm Royale. The room was clean, pretty and full of details (chocolates on bed). We appreciated the AC, little terrace, cable TV and the bathroom, which was modern, with reliably hot or cold water. The staff was very attentive at all times; very professional. The installations in general were clean and perfectly kept. It was very nice to have daily breakfast at Under the Palm Cafe. French toast and scrambled eggs were so good. A few things that could improve: the WIFI in the room never worked, the room phone kept ringing at random times and the Cafe could use a lot more shade, since the sun was very aggressive. All in all, we would definitely return. The location is excellent, close to the Deli and good restaurants, and not right in the middle of the partying.

We were in the Bocas area for a total of two weeks and had a fantastic vacation. We stayed at Tesoro on Playa Bluff for three days, the La Loma for three days, then Palma Royale for a full week before coming back to the States. The first two hotels were wonderful, and I have reviewed them independently. Palma Royale was also wonderful, but in a slightly different way.

Staying at the Palma Royale was the perfect base to explore the Bocas area; we'd go scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, etc every day, and always looked forward to coming back to our AIR CONDITIONED room, where we could relax before going out for dinner. The TV worked great, the bathroom was huge and actually quite beautiful, the maid service was thoughtful, and the views from the room let us enjoy the Bocas area even when we weren't outside!

The front desk staff was amazingly helpful, even to the point of making us a special takeaway breakfast when we had to leave our last morning before the kitchen opened! Which reminds me - a real breakfast was included every morning!

I highly recommend Palma Royale if you're staying in Bocas town and want kind of a "deluxe" experience; it's well worth it, and the air conditioning feels great!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 303; there was an elevator (which is rare on the island). The room had one private...

This hotel was amazing! My husband and I stayed there and could not have had a better experience. The staff was friendly and attentive and the hotel was spotless. The location is probably the best part and you will not find a better spot on the island!
