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

We stayed here for two days during our visit the Panama. The island is gorgeous, but this hotel, as much of the (few) restaurants around, offers poor services. The location itself is the best thing about the hotel. Everything else is in bad shape, very run down. Two stars hotel at best, which is very far from the four star... More

We took the ferry from Panama City, great boat ride. The ferry brings you to the beach there, then you switch to a smaller craft 200 meters off shore and they bring you in. I tipped some guy to lug our bags right up to The Point check in right on the beach. Perfect, we were checked in, unpacked and... More

Coming from panama city to this beautiful island just exactly to the hotel very nice rooms with aircondition and cable tv, sweeming pool, Internet was working perfectly, the food is awsome. We rent a golf car and drove the island, stoped to eat ice cream and went to the beach.the best trip ever. The service is out standing.

Dates: from Jan 1st - 3rd 2015 Positive: the hotel has one of the best location, just beside the beach where the ferry arrives. Great view from the rooms, we had the room where you can see the sunset. The staff is very friendly, most of the people in the island are willing to help you. Contadora and pearl islands... More

The main highlight would definitely be the amazing location and view from the hotel. All the beaches in Contadora are beautiful but The beach next to the Point, Playa Galeon, is a delight to swim in and probably my favourite. We had an ocean view room, amazing view and quite comfortable, but just needs a few touch-ups such as a... More

The Point, on the island of Contadora, is where the executives and film crew reside when they are producing one of "The Survivor" episodes on the barren adjoining island of Mogo Mogo., Each episode is unique to the country. So, production companies from all of the world have stayed and then filmed their "survivors" . Although I set out to... More

First - there aren't many lodging options on Contadora. This is, in fact, the only actual hotel; it was the only one with a beach bar and a pool, so we booked. We got a rate for $100 / night on Expedia. Our room was old, but definitely not dirty. Not an inviting bathroom, but we weren't expecting too much.... More

We were very disappointed in the conditions at The Point. It was not even close to what was described or pictured. Very run down and dirty. Shower had so much mold we didn't want to use it. The room we were given wasn't a very good view from the room so we asked if we could change the 2nd day... More

All of the rooms have a beach view. The meals are gourmet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The people there are all amazing. Anything you needed, you can ask anyone that works there and they go above and beyond to help you. We spent 5 days there and fell in love with the island. The view, the people at the... More
