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 quiet place to write, read and relax. We offer you a small size un-crowded atmosphere and 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.
We offer a relaxed and comfortable environment for the mature traveler.
Families with their children (aged 12 and up) are warmly welcome if they rent the entire apartment for their stay.
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 a 3 bedroom/ 3 bathroom apartment with a full kitchen that you can rent per room. Whether you rent only one room 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 hikes or daytrips and you make your own reservations.
You will find your way around. You will find our special Bocas Guide in a leaf-let in your room 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 room with a queen size bed ( Double deluxe ) and each of our other two rooms are equipped with two single beds ( Twin deluxe ). Each room has its own private ensuite bathroom.
Each of our rooms 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 rooms is provided with a 32-inch flat screen television with cable TV. We receive local and international channels like CINEMAX, CNN (English and Spanish), TNT, HISTORY CHANNEL, SPACE, DISNEY etc.
The Palmyra offers free wireless internet to its rooms and common areas for our guests that have laptops or PDA's.
Each of our rooms is equipped with a super efficient and very silent air-conditioning. With the remote control you can choose your perfect temperature.
Each of our rooms 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 service, you have to support yourself. If you need your towels and linens changed daily we are not the right place for you.
You will experience Bocas in a different way - we want you to have the best time in Bocas!
Relax and enjoy!
