8/10 Very good

The property was very nice, style of rooms, very large, and furnishings very comfortable and elegant. It was conveniently located with water taxi service across the street to visit other isles. There was a nightclub also across the streer that was fantastic, plenty of shopping and restaurant options on the same street. One disappointment was the staff, front desk and housekeeping. They took our towels, which we did not request, and then took a full day to replace them. Ridiculous. Secondly front desk staff offered a free night stay when electricity went out in the town then promptly forgot about it at check out. If something is offered to offset any inconveniences you suffer, big or small, get it in writing.

Hotel Palma Royale needs more stars!!
I couldn't wait to write this review! Amazing, Awesome, Delightful. The Hotel staff of ladies made my stay the absolute best. ALWAYS courteous & attentive to whatever I may have asked. The room/suite gave me a great view each morning of the bay & main street, not to mention a great patio to sit on when the rain came at night. I could listen to the vibrant sounds of water taxis hurrying through the water, or locals & other tourist conversing as they walked by below. My room was always a comfort after a day out. The bathroom was detailed & beautiful. The air conditioning really relaxed us after a good shower. But ince again it was truly the Staff that makes this place everything. Their English was great, their guidance & overall knowledge & recommendations where never wrong and their smiles are electric & affectionate. This Hotel is one if not the BEST in Bocus Town.

Great location, spacious rooms, & friendly staff
The staff was very friendly and responsive. The location was excellent. It was very close to the ferry and within walking distance to the shops and restaurants. The accommodations (2 queens…one in a separate bedroom and one in the main living area) were very spacious and comfortable. The laundry service was excellent. We received our laundry back ahead of the requested time. There were some things beyond the control of the staff, so the following comments are directed to the owner: The main drawback was the shower. There was no door, which allowed water to splash onto the floor, causing the floor to be a slip hazard. We were given a bath mat, which helped, but it didn’t solve the problem. The closet was spacious, but there was only one shelf, which was a drawback. I suggest adding more shelves to hold clothes and personal items. The elevator did not work consistently. Fortunately I was able to walk up and down the stairs to our room on the second floor, but we expected the elevator to work consistently, as I recently had back surgery, so it was a challenge. Having a working elevator was one of the reasons we selected this hotel. Finally, it was disconcerting to see that none of the hotel staff wore masks, which, by Panamánian law, is mandated. For the protection of both the staff and the customers, the Panamánian law should have been abided by.

Bocas for days
Stayed years ago and the hotel has done an adequate job of upkeep. On-site breakfast facilities not in use and Internet connectivity was spotty as other, newer hotels have been built.
