Just departed Palma Royale 3 days ago, and feel it is important to share my observations as well. I have read many of the reviews, and in fact, rely heavily on them when booking into a Hotel or eating at a restaurant. I agree with many of the positives that are outlined from the reviews, but have to outline the...

The staff at Palma Royale was very friendly and spoke English, especially the two main ladies who run the front desk and the male waiter at breakfast. The b-fast was open until 11 am so you can sleep in, and you can get eggs/pancakes/french toast, fresh squeezed orange juice, and a fresh pineapple bowl of tropical fruit included with your...

Great time great location friendly people clean rooms. Only one small problem and that is our door would not close unless we turned the lock. Great location close to everything and one of the best restaurants in town 3 Doors Down. Plus a grocery store right beside it that had the best prices in town

We stayed here for 8 days and it was beyond what we expected. My boyfriend and I stayed in the economy suite. The room was beautiful! We had a lovely outdoor patio area where we enjoyed our morning coffees (the best coffee I've ever had at a hotel, they have fresh beans and a grinder so you can grind your...

This was my second time at the Palma Royale, and I plan to stay there whenever I'm in Bocas. No where on the island comes close to Palma Royale in terms of quality and location. It feels comfortable and premium while maintaining the local charm of Bocas. The rooms are beautiful and the staff is incredibly nice and helpful. I...

The hotel and staff was amazing we had a group of 13 people all staying for a week and the staff was on it. I have worked in hospitality for 8+ years and the staff was 5 stars. Everything from the all included breakfast in the morning to the fantastic cocktails by the bar staff it all was perfect.

We stayed at the hotel from February 28-March 6. We were in the penthouse suite with another couple. The suite has 2 bedrooms, the master has an ensuite and the other bedroom doesn't. The other couple just used the main bath as their own. The deck wrap over to the side ( as the penthouse is a corner suite) and...

We stayed at the Palma Royale 2 different times during our visit to Bocas Town. The rooms are spacious, well-furnished and equipped, the location is very convenient to town, but far enough away from the town center so it is quiet at night. The hotel and restaurant staff are exceptional - friendly, helpful and accommodating. We will definitely plan to...
