We spent only one night here before heading out to the islands. Our room was perfect. We were in the luxury suite. It is very large, clean and had everything you would need if you were staying longer. It is across the street from the water but still had a nice view. Very comfortable balcony shaded by a large palm... More

I've spent many years back and forth from Chicago to Bocas Del Toro Panama! It's probably one of my favorite destinations. When I think of what I look for in a hotel, (clean, secure, helpful staff, views of the ocean, ambiance, etc) Palma Royale fits all my needs. This is my third stay at Palma Royale and I absolutely love... More

We got two rooms, one of them a nice suite with great balcony and views of the ocean. I was delighted by the decor on the... More

We stayed 5 nights in a double deluxe suite (room 301) with its own kitchen, separate bedroom and private balcony. There were both fans and air conditioning. The coffee beans for grinding yourself were a nice touch. There is a small lift but we tended to take the stairs. The hotel is on 4 floors. Breakfast was nice, everything is... More

My friends and I stayed at the hotel and we loved our room. It was great to be right downtown and close to the restaurants and clubs. We had a mini fridge and fresh coffee in our room and a balcony over looking the water. It was incredible. I would definitely stay there again.

This place is convenient if you are diving as it is close to the dive centers. I would agree with most of the comments from reviewers here. The people at the desk seem indifferent and are not overly friendly. They will help if you push, but will not voluntarily go out of their way. The breakfast menu is limited (not... More

Well located in the town for views of the water and very easy walk to restaurants and shops, and strolling the residential areas. Easy to arrange tours (snorkeling, cacao plantation, etc).
