We stayed 2 nights, the Hotel was very clean, comfortable and cozy. The room was nice and comfortable. Breakfast was good, fruit, eggs, pancakes, juice and coffee. Tony, the manager was waiting for us at the beach and took us for a tour around the island, he was very friendly, we felt like at home.

We stayed here 3 nights I think it was the best B&B in he hotel, but we did not have the best room. We were located next to the kitchen and the dining area, and it was a bit noisy. So avoid the Guacamaya room, especially if the hotel is fully booked. The island itself is OK, there is not... More

A great bed and breakfast with clean, comfortable and air conditioned rooms. Tony, the English-speaking owner, is an excellent host who picked us up at the landing strip. He even managed to find us despite our flight being delayed without notice (this seems to happen a lot with AirPanama). He’s also a real man about town who seems to know... More

We booked this hostel primarily because of the very positive feedback here on trip advisor. That is why I have been totally surprised by what we've found. And I have to say that it made me question the authenticity of the feedback here on TA - for the very first time!!! The breakfast that does not deserve the name breakfast:... More

The Contadora Island Inn was a great stay on its own, complete with well-kept rooms, nicely working AC units, breakfast daily, nice front and back porches that provide a wonderful place to begin or end your day with a great view of the surrounding environment and the sky - but what topped off the stay for myself, my girlfriend and...

PROS: This is a no frills place, it is a small house adapted to "Inn" (or B&B), with few suites (I believe 5) with things you need to survive a weekend at the beach: large king bed, additional single bed, Air Conditioner, Satellite TV and a bathroom with clean towels. Each room has a deck (shared, but large one) with... More

We set out to plan a naturist vacation, as we usually do. When I searched TripAdvisor for a naturist resort in Panama (and close to Panama City) this B&B was the first recommendation. Until now, I don't know why, since it is not even close to Las Suecas, the only naturist beach on the island (and the only official one... More

Most accommodations are based on the other side of the island to where the ferry drops off passengers, including Contradora Island Inn. After arriving by ferry we were advised by another b&b that someone would pick us up shortly, however this wasn't something our b&b had mentioned to us. So we waited quite sometime but no-one showed up. The initial... More

We stayed two nights and wish it had been many more. Tony is a great manager. His 36+ years in the service industry show. He is dedicated to guest service. When you leave, you feel like you are leaving a friend. He feels the same way. Strangely, it turns out his sister ives in our hometown.The rooms are comfortable with... More

Toni, Melinda and Silvio are fantastic hosts, bending over backwards to make sure everything is in perfect condition. Their Inn is just fantastic, every room is spotless and well equipped. Having traveled to many of the Islands in Panamá, I can tell you that this is an amazing place and that the care and love of their owners really shows.... More
