I was quite unsure about staying in this hotel due to comments read on tripadvisor. However, I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised by what I found when I arrived. You couldnt have a more idyllic setting for a hotel, looking down onto a beautiful beach. I really enjoyed the fact that the beach was so quiet, considering... More

This was my fifth trip to Isla Contadora and the first time I stayed at Villa Romantica. We were all very pleased with our experience. In fact, we liked it so much that we will definitely stay here again. While the rooms are not fancy, they were clean and ours was quite spacious. We did have a sea view room,... More

I love giving positive reviews. I try to do my research and granted Villa Romantica's reviews aren't very good. I wanted to stay on Isla Contadora for a few days on the beach and wanted to have a hotel where I had a view on the ocean and direct access to the beach. They accepted my booking for the honeymoon...

Arrival day, people were nice. We had to wait because we were early so we waited at the restaurant with the pleasant smell of sewage. Check in was at 11:00, we rented 3 rooms for my kids. I was told to check my sheets because one of the beds were not changed and they had hairs and that the room... More

The price for the room is too high for what you get. We pay for a suite and was terrible. The room need A LOT of maintenance, is so sad, because we had a nice ocean view, but they need to invest more in maintenance, in general (rooms, restaurant, everything). We paid for 3 nights, and just stay 1. We... More

Have never written a review before but our recent 5 days at Villa Romantica have prompted me to step into virgin territory. First, everything everyone says below is true, both good and bad. I'd like to update because it does appear the staff are getting the message. There was no loud music anywhere. They had shampoo and conditioner, but someone... More

This hotel is in a beautiful location, the food is good and the service excellent. My friend had fallen, severely injured his knee and was unable to move without assistance. The staff were wonderful and assisted him in every way possible. When it looked like there would not be a seat on the ferry back to Panama City the manager,... More

There are a number of issues we did not like about this hotel - The food is mediocre though I think the cook tries his best The management is totally indifferent - they simply do not care if you have any issues. The French owner-manager keeps his distance from the guests for obvious reasons - usually just sits in the... More

We stayed at Villa Romantica a few days after the new year. We booked our rooms by sending an email directly to the hotel around mid November. We gave our dates and then called in our credit card number to confirm the reservation. The English of the woman who took our call was better than our Spanish. It was an... More

They double-charged our bill, and are ignoring our requests to refund us. Thieves. Very dirty place, horrible rooms, bad service. They didnt show up for pick up, nearly made us miss our return flight, boat trip was horrible, food disgusting. Never go there
