“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

Tabago Island is a fantasy world.
The Vereda Tropical if managed by an Orge,had Grisdella $ Anatasia as cook & waitress would still be a delight.
My stay was most pleasant,had 4 meals there 2 breakfast 1 lunch 1 dinner.
The Service was SUPERB the food excellent
My room had French doors that opened to a spectular view of the beach & pristine water..
The staff when checking in & departing was extremely courteous & helpful.
I would certainly recomend the Verda Tropical to everone!

Room Tip: Book a beach & water front room.

Our stay was delightful in this little gem of a hotel. Set above the beach with a grand view, it has the best food on the island and a serious menu of interesting beverages. I will definitely be back. A friend went on my recommendation and raved about all of the above plus a fabulous mojito

Room Tip: Ocean view is a must

Vereda Tropical is a charming small hotel on the Island of Taboga. The isalnd si easily reachable by ferry and is the perfection destination for a short break. the highlight of the hotel is the view one can get from teh terrace and even better from the seaview rooms. That is what comes to mind at 6am when the sun comes up and you open your window to a view on the bay and, on lucky days, on the Panama frontline in the horizon. the hotel is not the most modern you have seen but ahs all standard amenities ( water is sometimes restricted i the dry season though). the food si also correct and the service amicable if not super fast

Room Tip: seaview rooms, especially the corner one

I am writing because can not just leave this situation the way it is.
Your hotel has a terrible attitude for the guests. Waiters working like I have to do something for them and not like they appreciate and respect the guest...
We had four meals in your restaurant and paid more then 500 dollars for it plus cost of the rooms, and me and my friends feel like we have stolen something... In the evening we had a dinner in the restaurant and we brought the bottle of vine with us and NOBODY told us about any rule in the restaurant, the waiter silently brought the glasses for us... For sure if they tell us about rule, and told that we we can drink our vine but pay for it 10 dollars (why not 30???), or just buy one from the bar, that would not be anyroblem but When we ask for the bill they just put 10 dollars for our bottle... We ask waiter why did not he told us before and there was not any answer... So we asked if we did not order the dinner can we drink our vine in the restaurant, they told we could drink our vine without any charge if we did not order, so it is better not to order for the dinner and do not let your restaurant earn money??? Then waiter told us that if we will not pay this 10 dollars he will switch off the light.. I am sorry WHAT THAT MEANS? what is a stupid childhood??? And later when we switch off the light and we were sitting in the dark they offered to pay 5 dollars!!!!!!
So in the morning we wanted to talk with owner of the hotel but nobody told us where she is... I was really upset and my friends also. In the afternoon we had lunch again in your restaurant, and told that we are not going to pay for OUR bottle of vine, so the girl from reception told us that we can not leave the restaurant if we not pay... So when we left in the street the policemen stoped us until we gave him that 10 dollars!!! We missed our ferry, my two years old daughter was crying and she had a lot of sun while the policeman talk to my husband.
It is really bad situation, and I am really unhappy with that, you ruined my holiday. I do not want to come to Taboga any more, and also if you will not do anything with that problem, I will tell everybody in panama and in the travel agencies that your hotel is not the place where they can do good relax. That is not the treat, it is just the reaction for all of this...
I am really unhappy to write such an email, but you and you stuff did not give me any other feelings...

The hotel is very charming. We loved the details of the design. The rooms were spotless and our room (#6) had an ocean view. At night we opened the French doors and slept with open windows. The breeze of the ocean for sure is superior to any A/C (which the room didn't have).

No doubt, the island is expensive and definitely not really great value. That said, Vereda Tropical appears fairly priced compared to the only other option on the island (Cerrito). We looked at both hotels and Vereda Tropical definitely has more charm.

There are not many restaurant options on the island and it appears that the restaurant owners agreed to a certain price level which is pretty high for what you get. Vereda Tropical's restaurant is pricey but in line with its island peers. Breakfast is mediocre and lunch / dinner are pretty good.

Some other reviewers complained about the service. We perceived the service as very good though. Not sure if they maybe changed some of the staff.

We stayed for a week on Tobago in Vereda Tropical. it is run by a warm, friendly old sailor who will organize anything for you. The rooms are good, beds are fine, kitchen is perfect and the beer is cold enough. We enjoyed our stay here and will be back one day
