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

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
