Tropical Suites Hotel
Ranked #1 of 13 Hotels in Bocas Town
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 March 2013

We stayed at Tropical Suites for a month in January/February 2013 and it is just a great place. In many ways, the hotel is the embodiment of the hotel's owners, Chip and Jamie - it is friendly, well maintained, thoughtful and good looking. The hotel also benefits from having really good and helpful staff. It is definitely worth splashing out a bit more for the ocean view suites - the view is worth the extra investment.

Room Tip: Get the ocean view suites

This was definitely one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in and the owners were especially nice!
We traveled to Panama to get an idea what it would be like to maybe rent a place to stay for a couple of months. We did a tour and visited many places. I have to say that Bocas Del Torro was a very pleasant place. The hotel definitely won me over. We only spent one night, but, would have stayed longer had we not be with a tour group. It was a very quiet, clean and beautifully decorated place. The room was very spacious and outfitted with everything you need. The bathroom was very big with two sinks and plenty of storage space for your toiletries.
We talked with the owners at length and they were very gracious.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side have a view of the water. There is also a fabulous penthouse suite on site...

The manager and his crew were awesome from the minute we arrived until the second we checked out
We travel a lot but when the manager had difficulty with cabs reliability when setting up our transportation to the airport.............he took it upon himself to take his own car and drive us to the airport himself................
This was definitely over and above service..................He made sure our stay was without
flaws..................
The rooms were impeccably clean and always supplied with comfort items
You guys really deserve high marks

My husband and I stayed three nights at this comfortable hotel. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The ocean view was great. We enjoyed watching the the water taxis and other boats from our private deck. We were located close to all the restaurants and activities. We had a wonderful experience.

We enjoyed our six night stay here. The accommodations were fine and we were happy to have a small, but functional, kitchenette. The staff was helpful. There was a bit of confusion with the free breakfast vouchers. The night staff could not give out the vouchers, and I had to leave in the morning before the morning staff arrived with the vouchers. That is the only thing I would change if given the opportunity.

Room Tip: There is a lot of street noise but the air conditioner muffles most of it. I don't know if all...

On a recent trip to Costa Rica, we decided to take an overnight trip to Bocas del Toro. We didn't have a reservation, but I had read about this on Trip Advisor and expected it to be good. It definitely was. We enjoyed our stay in this lovely hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the water would be nice, but are probably more expensive. If you stay on the stree...

Good kitchen facilities, very comfortable bed and wonderful ocean view. Staff is nice and always try to help. Location is great, very close to the restaurants, markets, etc. All the boats park in hotel deck, so it is quite easy to make the trips to islands with family and kids.
