Hardly slept as the bed was tiny for two and the room absolutely reeked of mildew. Bath towels were stored on the toilet. "Continental breakfast" was a joke that consisted of white bread, hard-boiled eggs, American cheese slices, and cornflakes in a Tupperware in a small mini fridge. Not what I had imagined when booking a bed and breakfast.

We stayed at the Casa del Sol Apartment for 2 nights for my birthday and had a lovely visit on Contadora. The apartment was very accommodating , but needed a few updates to make it top notch. But after a conversation with the owners they admit they are making some changes in the upgrade department!! The caretaker Kevin is very... More

We stayed at the B&B with three people and loved it. The kitchenette is decently stocked with a mini fridge, single electric burner, frying pan, and dishes and utensils. Breakfast is stocked in your fridge the afternoon before, and includes hard boiled eggs, lots of bread, cheese, butter, jam, milk, juices, tea, coffee, and cereal. The couple looking after the...

We stayed here a few nights in June 2014. Peter, the owner, was very helpful responding to our questions leading up to the trip, and when we got to the island he picked us up in a golf cart and gave us a tour of the island on the way to the hotel. The island is small (3 x 1... More

Casa del Sol was perfect for our stay or four nights on Contadora Island. It's one of the cheaper options on the islands and is a great value. The rooms come with a coffeemaker toaster and mini fridge that is stocked daily with your continental breakfast. Peter, who manages the hotel, was very accommodating and helpful throughout our stay.

We stayed for 5 days in February, 2014 in the studio apartment. Anke picked us up and gave us a good island orientation tour. She was full of answers and information when we had questions all during our stay. We are walkers, so we walked everywhere and enjoyed our island and beach wanderings. It was pretty hot at mid-day; a... More

We didn't stay at the Bed & Breakfast but at one of their apartment near by. The staff picked us up at the ferry, did a tour of the island and were really nice! Clean, the screened terrace with a dining table and a hammock were amazing!!! When I sent an email inquiring about the property and the availability, I... More

The couple that manages the property are very welcoming and knowledgable. We had a great stay. Excellent room. More fun on the island than at the resport in Panama. We will be back for another stay with the entire family

I went with a group of friends for the weekend and found this house a very good deal. Since the moment of booking, we were pleasantly well attended, they picked us up on the beach we arrived and took us to the house. The house comes with everything you need and even more. It is cozy and is in a... More
