I stayed here for 3Ds after filming an adventure reality show, on Isla San Telmo... A fantastic setting and friendly staff. I was surprised how luxurious the hotel was despite being a two ferry from Panama... Lots of things to do - water sports. Or you can completely relax or your own deserted island with home comforts.

Was a place more ineptly named? It could be not just Romantica, but the Pearl in Las Perlas, but lack of EVERYTHING apart from the location puts this in the also ran league. OK so we didn't stay here, but after our visit I can confirm that I will not be staying! I sailed to Las Perlas with my partner... More

First I qualify this by saying we did not stay here. We were part of the Sea Las Perles ferry and coming to Romantica was part of the package so that we could spend time on the beach. What we did see, yes, the place is in need of repair, but then again, so is everything in Panama. They appeared... More

This hotel can be awesome if you really lower what you expect from it. If I have to summarize the issue in a few words, I would say there is no investment in the facility. Both in terms of human resources and infrastructure! The location is prime. It is right on the beach and that beach is really cool with... More

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
