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.

Thank you for your company! We really enjoyed having you here! We hope to see you again soon- there are a lot more adventures to explore! We wish you all the best! The Palmyra Family


We had a great stay at the Palmyra! We even stayed 4 days longer! It's not in the middle of the main street but if you want to sleep sometimes then that's perfect! It was only 5min walk into the "center" and 2min with the bikes witch are included! Perfect equipped kitchen and a own terrace are also great!! We defiantly would stay there again. Thanks

Thank you! It was a pleasure for us to have you as our guests. We wish you many more great trips and have fun with whatever you're planning. We hope to see you again someday! The Palmyra Family


Simply the best in Bocas!!! There's just three private rooms with shared kitchen facilities, so be sure to book early. Rooms are super clean, colorful and spacious. The place is superbly run by Felicitas, a warm and intelligent woman who is very welcoming and helpful. She told us all kinds of great things to do in Bocas and to top it off she invited the group of guests for a day trip on the boat with her family! You helped make Bocas the highlight of our 5 week trip, thank you!

We really enjoyed your company. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests. You guys are great! Happy New Year to you both! The Palmyra Family


Everything was excellent!! Only wish that there was a fan or AC in the kitchen area.

Dear guests, thank your for your comments. You were the first to bring the lack of a fan in the kitchen to our attention which none of our guests mentioned before since the kitchen is well ventilated with one large window and two doors that can be opened. But we took your advice to heart and installed a fan.
