My mom and I had the amazing pleasure of staying at Perla Real Inn from 11/17/14-11/20. I have stayed in big resorts in all parts of the world and this is one little gem that I will be sure to visit once again. Isla Contadora for starters is a small island where you feel SAFE and where you can explore... More

My husband and I stayed two nights and three days with our 1 year old baby. Perla Real is THE PLACE TO CHOOSE. No other hotels in the island can offer such excellent attention, such cozy rooms and such a wonderful patio. Perla Real is close to every beach and next door neighbor to the best restaurant in the island... More

This was my first trip to Contadora and the owner Maria Josef and her assistant Marcela were extremely helpful. Thank you so much for all you did for me! I was picked up at the airport landing strip and greeted with a lovely fruit drink and introduction to the island beaches and restaurants. Casa Tortuga restaurant (see separate reviews) is... More

At the time we went we had booked very last minute and stayed at the villa near the ocean. Loved the luxurious lounging chairs. I was wondering how the villa next door looks like inside as some famous people loved there in the past. There was also an option to book some food from this location, in the beginning a... More

This place is too good not to share, although I'd selfishly like to keep it on the down low! Maria and staff provide outstanding personal service from pick up to drop off. Comfortable, clean room in a tranquil setting. Loved their dining and fishing recommendations, and loved hanging out there. Chris D. Houston

We were pleased with the hotel. Upon arrival, we felt like the pictures online had led us to believe the hotel might have been a little different than what it actually was. The room was cozy - air conditioning and mini-fridge. They were having trouble with the hot water heater while we were there. They did not mention to us... More

Perla Real Inn in Contadora is a nice hotel, very friendly staff (Carlitos, Marcela) and owner María José, always willing to help, courteous and always with a smile. You can call that cell phone anytime and she will answer :) room is cousy, with AC and fan, small fridge, no telephone in room( good so you can really relax )

This little gem on Contradora Island offers so much. From the drinks at check in, to first class service and friendly staff. We arrived with our 2 children in tow - a 3 year old and a 3 month old. Marcella who checked us in was fantastic with our kids. They absolutely adored her (and so did we). They picked... More

Sadly, Contadora island is not half the island it used to be in terms of where to stay. But Real Inn is the best place to stay on the island. The owners of the hotel, though, have recently bought a property in Contadora that will likely be a great hotel anywhere in the world. The Royal Inn is a very... More
