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. Chip was very helpful when we had some miscommunication about reservations and made sure we got the room that we wanted and in which were comfortable. The hotel promptly picked us up from the airport and brought us to the hotel (we could have walked had we know where...

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.

We were traveling with another family for summer vacation and to study Spanish. Tropical Suites gave us the comforts, security and convenience that we needed.

This was my 2nd trip to Bocas and staying at Tropical Suites this time greatly improved the experience. Wish I would have done so the 1st time. Great location, very nice rooms, good breakfast and excellent staff! Definitely pay extra for the ocean-side rooms. If you really want a treat go for the Starfish Suite. Amazing! A glass floor to...

Our fourth year back enjoying Bocas and Tropical Suites.

We stayed at Tropical Suites for five nights. It's a lovely, clean and accommodating hotel in Bocas. The staff is just lovely. Very kind and helpful. The rooms are spacious and airy. We had an ocean-view room which was very peaceful and serene. The mattresses are very comfortable, and the only thing I would suggest are softer pillows. Rather stiff...
