The hotel is right next to the drop off from the ferry. It is right across from airport but not many planes fly out of there. It is relatively small and quaint. It is not fancy and needs major updating but is perfect for an overnight stay. It has free wifi, hot water, air conditioning, and a simple breakfast. There... More

Contadora island is a fantastic destination with just the right balance of things to do and nothing to do at all. The choices of hotels are limited and this is a great place for family. The rooms all have gorgeous views, hot showers, cold AC and even crib available for the little ones. The only thing lacking is a restaurant... More

Contadora is not a very big island, and the Point is the easiest place to get to. Whether arriving by ferry or plane, the Point is the first resort you see. We stayed over Christmas and had a wonderful time. The beach is amazing and was quiet most of our days. The pool was warm and clean, and again we... More

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.
