I recently stayed at The Point Hotel located in beautiful Contadora Island (12 min flight, 1 hr 1/2 by Ferry from Panama City) and cant say enough great things about this beautiful unique property with such breathtaking ocean views and local art throughout the hotel. I departed from the Balboa Yacht club to board the Ferry which took about 1... More

This is not the Four Seasons but the owner and staff are attentive and as you may know this is not usual in Panama. I must have internet because I work while travelling and I was very impressed when I received an email that there may be an issue with the internet, and a suggestion that I may want to... More

So relaxing...great location...very friendly people as staff. Very glad we stayed here! New manager seems very customer oriented. Wish we could have stayed longer. Absolutely loved the location…especially after seeing the other hotels on the island.

I read all the reviews on Contadora hotels before booking at The Point through a guide helping me based in Panama (Barefoot Panama). The location is stunning, with views of the beaches and an old tropical feel, not a Disney version of Panama. Maybe because I knew Panama from living there as a child, the "imperfections" didn't matter as much... More

After not so good experience with Villa Romantica in the past we thought we try another place. We knew "The Point" from passing on previous occasions and we knew it was pretty much run down and in need of major renovation. This is also reflected in some of the Tripadvisor reviews. We thought to give it a go anyway. A... More

The hotel is really great. You feel like in small paradise. Direct view on the sea from the rooms. The rooms are clean and they have a small terrace so that you can enjoy some "alone/quite" time after the beach.

We stayed at the Point in August of 2013. My son loved the pool and the location as we could rent golf carts nearby and tool around. My wife and I enjoyed the hotel and greatly appreciated the staff and management who really made our stay wonderful. We had two adjoining rooms looking out over the ocean with unbeatable views....

The Point was very nice and relaxing. The view was fantastic. The location was great, right where the ferry arrives. It is located right on a beach near the small sailing center and near tour operators that offer snorkeling and whale watching trips to other islands, and the welcome center where golf carts can be rented to explore the island....

On of the best beach to my opinión from the island is their semi private beach. The food is good. The service is also... More
