We loved this place! Perfect place to stay for our group of 4 adult friends.


Felicitas was AMAZING! She truly understands how doing a small favor that is easy for her can really save someone's butt (she understood when our travel was unexpectedly delayed a day- the day before anticipated arrival, she allowed us to stay for a few hours after checkout when we wanted to enjoy some beachtime + a shower before an early evening departure). Very clean, the double private room is plenty of space and the communal areas are well marked and stocked.

The Apartment Hotel was very clean an tidy. Excellent attention from Felicitas, the owner. She has everything planed for you, and if you have any questions, she will happily help you. The location is a few blocks away from the center (really quiet), so it is a 5/10 mins walk/ 2 minutes on the hotel bikes. The kitchen is fully equipped, very clean and very well organized. Every room has it own terrace with chairs and hammocks.

Dear guests, thank you for your comments, it was a pleasure having you as guests. It is so nice to meet people with a genuine smile in their eyes. We wish you the best and hope to see you again! The Palmyra Family


Great, quiet, super clean place!! Comes with your own bikes... So it does not really matter that it is a couple of blocks away from the main drag. Clean, great kitchen... Should you really want to cook in a place like Panama for whatever reason. Ah... And the TVs come in 4 Seasons size... Should you really want to watch TV in a place like Bocas...;) relaxed owner, too...

Thank you for your nice review - we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us! Happy travels! The Palmyra Family


Originally my booking was for only 3 days, but Bocas is a great town and The Palmyra is the perfect place to stay, so I extended by another 7 days. Felicitas knows exactly what a guest wants and delivers it in a most beautiful package; clean, tastefully decorated rooms, private outside verandahs with hammocks to watch the hummingbirds, a great kitchen with EVERYTHING you need(even to go on a picnic), free bikes and of course her great warmth & kindness. Fantastic place, you will love it!

Dear Guest, many thanks for your nice review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Good luck for all your future plans. The Palmyra Family


Amazing place and an amazing family who make you feel so welcome and who go above and beyond expectation! This place has made my holiday in Bocas so relaxed and comfortable. We booked for 3 nights and stayed for 15. Cannot recommend anywhere better if you are looking for a calm, safe, quiet oasis to relax and feel welcomed during your stay.
