The staf is friendly and helpfull. We had a Room with sea view, comfortable bed and a big terrace and very hygienic! One negative point: you have to rent the beachtowels. Breakfast at café Lily, 3 minute walk and enough choice and tasty breakfast. But overall: we had à great stay!

Lovely spacious rooms with balcony overlooking water. Close to most restaurants. Staff were great and very helpful. Disappointing choice for breakfast at Lili's Cafe next time we stay at Tropical Suites we will pick another place for breakfast. Loved the hotel and look forward to our next visit there.

My wife and I stayed at the Tropical for 5 nights. We stayed in a sea view room 5 which was very well appointed with a spacious terrace balcony. The bed was particularly comfortable. Both the standard of accommodation and cleaning service were first rate. Staff were both helpful and efficient. We arranged boat pick ups through them and everything...

We recently spent a week in Bocas del Toro for our spring vacation and given the fact that it was our first trip to Panama, we did a lot of research on the local lodgings before going and landed on Tropical Suites as the best choice due to it's already outstanding reviews and great location.

Tropical Suites is AMAZING! The location is perfect. Walking distance to everything and beautiful views overlooking the ocean. Breakfast is included at Lili's (restaurant next door) and the food is to die for. The staff at Tropical Suites is extrememly helpful and the maid service was the best I've ever seen. Our room was huge and had a wonderful balcony...

The rooms are clean and spacious with very comfortable beds. It's on the water with beautiful views. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location is great: it's near good restaurants and bars and right next to water taxis who can take you to surf, snorkeling, SUP, and kayaking spots.

Walking around Bocas Town, there are many, many reasonably priced Hostel style hotels. Tropical Suites is one of the few upscale hotels and possibly only one of 3 on the water. We were in room 8, 2nd floor on the end. The rooms have very spacious terraces with table and chairs. Perfect for eating or a great view for happy...

Excellent accommodations, friendly staff, and centrally located for excursions to islands and good restaurants. Breakfast was included at the little restaurant next door (Lily's) which was yummy. Quick walk from the hotel to the water taxi back to the mainland. The rooms were very quiet and allowed total relaxation. Thanks to Trip Advisor we found this place!

For the price we paid, it's not the best hotel you can get, but probably the best you can get in the island though. I don't know if it was just my room, but the AC wasn't really cooling. The remote control for the TV wasn't working either. Though I guess those are minor complaints since one is not really...
