One night in Bocas was made very special by staying at Tropical Suites. My partner and I have lived in Bocas del Toro for almost three years now, but rarely stay in the town itself. But it was Vanessa's birthday and we wanted to do something special. The suite we booked was comfortable, clean and very luxurious. With a full...

We stayed at the Tropical Suites for 12 days and have to tell you the people who work the front desk are as nice and helpful as can be. They will help you with planning excursions in and around the island as well giving great advice as to what is going on during the week. We stayed on the street...

This is the place to stay in Bocas if you want high-end (for Bocas) accommodations. First of all the front desk staff at this hotel are truly wonderful. They did all that they were supposed to do, with a smile, but also helped call water taxis (arrived a few minutes after they called) told us where to find things in...

We stayed at this hotel for three days and never wanted to leave. The room was comfortable and had a great view from the deck. I strongly recommend springing the few dollars to have the water side rooms. The deck was great to watch the sunrise and the water front activities. The views from the decks of the water, the...

This is an unusual review - we were booked for December, but had to cancel at the last minute because of death in our family. The owner graciously allowed us to cancel our reservation. But he went WAY beyond that. Air Panama has a "no refunds" policy so we were likely to lose nearly $400 in tickets from Panama City...

Dear Guest, Excellent reviews are very appreciated and important to our business. However it is in no way comparable to being able to help someone that is in need and so appreciative afterwards that they write such a sweet review. I'm glad that we could be some small help in your time of need. Thank you for being such a...

Tropical Suites is the best of the best in Bocas Town, if you are looking for first world comfort and service. Bocas can be a bit rough around the edges, if you are not used to the Caribbean style of life with poor infrastructure, and Tropical Suites is a breath of fresh air, when you come off the street into...

We enjoyed our stay in Bocas Town and the Tropical Suites. The room was clean and modern with good air conditioning. Our room had a balcony over the water that gave us a great view of the harbor and other hotels and restaurants along the water. Breakfast next door at Lili's was great, and the day we needed to leave...

We stayed here for 2 nights and we enjoyed our stay.

The front desk folks were very helpful with all of our questions! They will assist you with dinner reservations, tours and massages. The rooms are beautiful, well equipped and very clean. We had a waterfront room and loved seeing all of the activity at sea. Would definitely stay here again when we return.
