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

Here are PRO-s and CON-s. CON-s: - Too far from the beaches, restaurants, and the ferry, where you can rent a boat for a trip on the islands. You can walk there for 35 minutes in the heat and humidity or rent a golf cart ($70/day) at the ferry. - If you arrive on a plane at around 10AM, you... More

Stayed 3 days and 2 nights. I love this place. The rooms were basic but clean and adequate. I was at the Pelicano room which accommodated 2 adults and my 16yo son. Room had its own bathroom (clean, hot water only in early part of AM and eves/night but it is a tropical country so the water from tap was... More

Tony met my family at the ferry and took us to the Inn. Tony speaks good english and really has passion and knowledge of the island. Our room was exceptional. Large, clean comfortable beds and a beautiful private patio out our door. The breakfast was delicious and my teenage son was thrilled to have such great wifi. Tony helped to... More

This is a beautiful house owned by a couple with a few available rooms so it is never crowded. We get a room with private bathroom and a small balcony. Our itinerary for a week was very simple: Breakfast cooked every morning to perfection. Engage in a conversation with other guests. Jump in a golf cart with a cooler full... More

1. Big breakfast (pancakes, scrambled eggs, fruits ...). 2. Lovely staff (friendly, helpful, socially skilled). 3. Quite at night. 4. Five-minute-walk to the most beautiful beach on the island. 5. A place where we felt relaxed and at home after just one day.

Contadora Island Inn is a nice and cosy B&B on the island of Contadora. Most of the accommodations are B&Bs, so CII falls with the norm when it comes to available lodging. The photos on the website are accurate. The rooms and property look exactly as advertised. The rooms are spacious and clean. The livings space is nice as well.... More
