Property Information:

Welcome to The Palmyra - a private residence that offers you a unique accommodation.

The Palmyra is ideal for couples, a group of friends or a family who wants to have the comfort of home in a foreign country, a perfect base for exploring Bocas del Toro while enjoying a nice place to relax. We offer you privacy with all the amenities you need to have a great stay in Bocas.

Dear travelers, please note that we do have a minimum age requirement of 25 years for all of our guests.
Families with their children (aged 12 and up) are warmly welcome.
Sorry, we do not accommodate young adults aged 18-24 unless they are travelling with their parents.

The Palmyra is close to everything in the small town of Bocas del Toro. If you don't like to walk, take the bicycle. Each of our guests can use a bicycle free of charge 24 hours a day.

The Palmyra is an exclusive small scale self catering apartment situated in Bocas Town on the main island of the Bocas archipelago. Three comfortable and tastefully appointed Suites make up this little paradise! Whether you rent only one suite or the entire apartment, at the Palmyra you will find a friendly, nice and private atmosphere.

But it is not the same as staying in a hotel. In an apartment there is neither a reception nor are there any employees around, you make your own plans for day trips and you make your own reservations.

It's easy to find your way around. You will find our special Bocas Guide in a leaf-let in your suite to provide you with information and useful hints and if you need more information you can reach us in the mornings and in the evenings and we will be happy to help and assist you.

You get keys for the gate, the entrance and to your room from us and you can come and go like you want - like at home.

This apartment offers everything you need to feel at home:

We offer one suite with a queen size bed (Double deluxe) and each of our other two suites are equipped with two single beds (Twin deluxe). Each suite has its own private ensuite bathroom.

Each of our suites is styled and decorated in the warm colors of the Caribbean Tropics to match the island we live on. The interior is furnished with our unique Palmyra designs, largely made of local hardwood and entirely handmade by local workman. You will enjoy comfortable beds with high quality orthopedic mattresses and 100% pure cotton sheets.

Each of our suites is provided with a 32-inch flat screen television with cable TV. We receive local and international channels.

The Palmyra offers free wireless internet to its suites and common areas for our guests that have laptops or PDA's.

Each of our suites is equipped with a super efficient and very silent air-conditioning. With the remote control you can choose your perfect temperature.

Each of our suites has its own private covered patio with access to the garden. The patios are equipped with relaxing chairs and hammocks. Our garden is full of birds. Experience how relaxing it can be watching them from your hammock, especially the hummingbirds.

We don't serve breakfast, but can recommend a morning stroll to some nice places in town. Our guests care for themselves and cater for themselves. This is why you will find a fully equipped kitchen in the apartment. You can have a 5 course meal, if you cook it yourself and you can enjoy unforgettable evenings in the well furnished dining area - then you have to clean up! You don't like cooking all the time? Our favourite restaurants are presented in the leaf - let in your Room.

There is no room service, you have to support yourself.
We do not offer any daily housekeeping service except for the common areas. If you need your towels and linens changed daily we are not the right place for you. Laundry service is available upon request for an additional fee.

You will experience Bocas in a different way - we want you to have the best time in Bocas.

Relax and enjoy.

Things to Note

Please consider the following before booking:The Palmyra is not a hotel.Staying in an apartment is entirely different from staying in a hotel. There is no reception, we don't serve breakfast, there is no roomservice. Your stay is as good as you make it! If you are accustomed to a hotel concierge's assistance you may not be happy staying in an apartment making your own bed.You may not get the daily maid service but you get a lot of space and privacy allowing your trip to become a real vacation.
