“Unbelievable experience, fantastic facility, I highly recommend it to anyone!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2013

We recently spent a week in Bocas del Toro for our spring vacation and given the fact that it was our first trip to Panama, we did a lot of research on the local lodgings before going and landed on Tropical Suites as the best choice due to it's already outstanding reviews and great location. Let me say that our research was spot on, this facility is by far the best that we have stayed at during our vacation travels. Everything within the hotel itself was impeccably well maintained, and the rooms were extremely spacious and accomodating and included a very comfortable king sized bed and kitchenette. Additionally, the staff was very courteous and helpful given our lack of knowledge about the island and the maid service was fantastic. It became quickly apparent that this is by far the best hotel on the island and has a beautiful view of the harbor with a great sitting area overlooking to enjoy cocktails with your vacation companions. We really can't say enough to describe how much we enjoyed our stay in Bocas due to our stay at Tropical Suites and will most certainly be returning on our next trip to Panama!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Highly recommend any room available as they all have a spacious balcony, the front rooms overlook th...

Tropical Suites is AMAZING! The location is perfect. Walking distance to everything and beautiful views overlooking the ocean. Breakfast is included at Lili's (restaurant next door) and the food is to die for. The staff at Tropical Suites is extrememly helpful and the maid service was the best I've ever seen. Our room was huge and had a wonderful balcony and view. I can't say enough great things about this property. If you are traveling to Bocas you definitely need to book your stay here. Loved it!!

The rooms are clean and spacious with very comfortable beds. It's on the water with beautiful views. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location is great: it's near good restaurants and bars and right next to water taxis who can take you to surf, snorkeling, SUP, and kayaking spots.

We spent 11 days traveling across Panama, ending in Bocas before returning home We saved the best for last! Comfortable, clean room and a jetted tub in a spacious luxurious bathroom. cold air conditioning and a very helpful staff that took time to help us change our flight back to PCY and arrange taxis for us. If you are going to Bocas - Tropical Suites is the place to stay!!

Walking around Bocas Town, there are many, many reasonably priced Hostel style hotels. Tropical Suites is one of the few upscale hotels and possibly only one of 3 on the water. We were in room 8, 2nd floor on the end. The rooms have very spacious terraces with table and chairs. Perfect for eating or a great view for happy hour.
Kitchens are in each suite, minimally stocked so not really suited for preparing full meals, however restaurants are really reasonable so no need to cook.
Beds very comfortable and rooms very clean.
Loved the location of the hotel, central on the main street.
LIlly, for breakfast is great. Love the pancakes! You can also opt for breakfast brought to your room for a couple dollars. Eating at the restaurant, walk in, grab the "Tropical Suites" separate menu and take a seat.

Room Tip: Ask for 2nd or 3rd floor room for best views

Excellent accommodations, friendly staff, and centrally located for excursions to islands and good restaurants. Breakfast was included at the little restaurant next door (Lily's) which was yummy. Quick walk from the hotel to the water taxi back to the mainland. The rooms were very quiet and allowed total relaxation. Thanks to Trip Advisor we found this place!

For the price we paid, it's not the best hotel you can get, but probably the best you can get in the island though. I don't know if it was just my room, but the AC wasn't really cooling. The remote control for the TV wasn't working either. Though I guess those are minor complaints since one is not really staying in the hotel room all day. Service-wise: Hotel staffs were really nice. Location: Very convenient since it has its own mini-dock. Although it doesn´t has its own restaurant, the hotel worked an agreement with a cafe beside it for breakfast. It´s not that bad, since it's quite nearby and the breakfast was good also. In overall, everything was just alright, but then again, for the price, one can probably get something more on the classier side.

Room Tip: Try asking for a room in the second or above rooms. You get some more view at least, whereas you cho...
