The beautiful Hotel Palma Royale is for sale on the main island of Colon, Bocas Del Toro, Panama. This hotel was built by three Americans who fell in love with the Caribbean beach town. As they prepare for retirement, they are ready to transition the property to a new owner. The setting is ideal, located just 10 meters from the sea on the quiet Main Street location. The hotel was built with American standards and has recently been renovated. The property is under Law 8, with a location in a tourist zone, which means you don’t pay property tax for 20 years and corporate income tax for 15 years. The owners spent $2.6M on the lot and construction and they are ready to sell! This is an incredible opportunity for a new owner to continue the operations and grow this boutique hotel business.

The hotel consists of 15 rooms, including 10 suites, 4 standard rooms, 1 penthouse as well as a restaurant that is leased out. The restaurant has excellent service, a friendly staff, and great Italian food. The reviews of the breakfast by guests are nothing short of outstanding. The hotel is beautifully landscaped with local flora throughout. It is in high demand throughout the year, but especially during the months of November to February. One famous boater, Jimmy Buffett has enjoyed the penthouse suite!
