Reviewed 14 November 2013

The room was beautiful with a private balcony but they all face other buildings not the sea. The linens were a bit shabby and the pillow covers weren't the cleanest but the staff was friendly and helpful. They made us feel very welcome. I would stay here again.

I have nothing bad to say about this hotel. The staff was amazing, the penthouse suite was more than you could ask for. The tile in the hotel was beautiful, the views were amazing and to top it all off there was a hammock on the balcony. The owner Mr. Bob was very friendly. I would stay here again if...

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Palm Royale. The room was clean, pretty and full of details (chocolates on bed). We appreciated the AC, little terrace, cable TV and the bathroom, which was modern, with reliably hot or cold water. The staff was very attentive at all times; very professional. The installations in general were clean and...

We were in the Bocas area for a total of two weeks and had a fantastic vacation. We stayed at Tesoro on Playa Bluff for three days, the La Loma for three days, then Palma Royale for a full week before coming back to the States. The first two hotels were wonderful, and I have reviewed them independently. Palma Royale...

This hotel was amazing! My husband and I stayed there and could not have had a better experience. The staff was friendly and attentive and the hotel was spotless. The location is probably the best part and you will not find a better spot on the island!

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in the Penthouse. We are a bit surprised that you heard the guests in the next room. The walls in all dividing rooms are double-dry-walled and double insulated. Also, the bathroom walls are floor to ceiling marble creating an extra buffer zone between guests. We spared no expense...
