What a great find! We spent 2 nights here before departing on a week-long catamaran trip out of the Bocas Marina. Palma Royale is in a quiet area of Bocas, near the end of the main street with a great view of the waterfront and happenings. They have a cute little front patio/restaurant area where we had breakfast each day...

Easy access to main attractions in Bocas and the center of town, but a little out of the way so that its on a quieter and not so crowded part of the street. Rooms had TV and AC, internet worked well. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was included with our stay and it was super good and made to order. The...

This hotel was better than I had expected. Our room was clean and spacious. We had a bedroom with plenty of wardrobe space, a large bathroom (shower, no bath) and a very generous lounge area with arm chairs, dining table and chairs and a kitchen area with utensils. The breakfasts were not buffet style, you picked from a menu. The...

We were in another hotel our first night in town and were not happy with our accommodations. While out walking we found Hotel Palma Royale and wandered in to talk to the woman at the desk. She gave us a key to go look at a room that was open on the second floor, and it was a beautiful room....

We loved our stay here -- in fact we loved it so much that when they didn't have availability for the full time we were there -- we left for another property and came back for the last few days here! Our 1 BR suite had a great view of the water. The rooms are really comfortable, clean and have...

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!
