My family stayed in this hotel for several days while we explored Contadora. The grounds of the hotel have so much potential, and I can tell they were once quite nice. The pool, thatched roof dining area, and outdoor lounge areas would have been awesome, if the hotel was better maintained. It's the tropics, and a secluded island, so I... More

The Point is a tough place to review. If you lower your expectations enough then it's not that bad. The location is ideal as it's walking distance from the ferry launch and central to most things. As noted in several reviews, the rooms are very dated. If you're ok with that then you'll be fine. There was no hot water... More

We had a great time even though this place definitely needs an update. Don't go here if you are wanting a great place to stay but is is ok if you are there just for the experience on the island. We had a wonderful time.

We stayed there for two nights and would go back just because of the location. It is an old hotel with a lot of potential and beautiful views. The rooms are average, one double bed and a little one with a not so comfortable mat, air conditioning, hot water and wifi. Breakfast could also be improved, not enough coffee and... More

The Point (Punta) Hotel, Contadora Island, Panama My sister and I stayed at the Point Hotel on Contadora Island for four nights in April 2015, and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire stay and highly recommend this hotel. We found absolutely nothing at all to complain about. Every single one of the staff were very friendly and responded immediately and with... More

No hot water, average food, bugs in rooms and worn down to almost a boarding house. Someone could make this s great place with money and time. Was here on business and would never let my family stay here.

The staff tried their very best but the place is very tired and needs a huge multi million dollar injection of funding to bring it into the 21st Century. The two owners of the property seem not prepared to do this so are just letting it decline. There are other places nearby that are also abandoned near the beach and... More

We were a bit surprise to arrive on a small boat to bring us to the beach from the ferry departing from Panama Trump hotel. But what a trip, the beach is crystal clear and we had to walk just a bit to arrive to the reception of The Point Hotel. Heidi gave us a briefing of the island and... More

From the second you walk in, you see that this hotel was breath-taking years ago. It is most likely that it is the biggest hotel in the area, and the huge plus is that all rooms have beach view. Honestly it was amazing to wake up seeing the blue water and flying birds, or prepare for dinner, watching the sunset... More
