We stayed at the Hotel Cerrito in August 2012. Making the reservation was simple and communication was excellent. We booked the mid level room because the description described the room as having on demand hot water. When we arrived at the island we were greeted at the dock by a Cerrito employee. He had arranged for a "taxi" to take us to the hotel. While the distance was not great it was helpful because the Cerrito sits up on the hill and the walk up is steep. We were given an upgrade upon arrival and put on the top floor suite. It had 2 rooms, a shared bathroom, a kitchenette and private balcony with hammocks and chairs overlooking the ocean. The view from the hotel is beautiful. The rooms were simple yet nice. One room had 2 twin beds the other a queen size bed. The suite was very comfortable and was clean. Each bedroom also had airconditioning. My only issue was that the hotel is advertised with hot water in these rooms. When the first shower was taken there was no hot water. When we inquired at the front desk the staffed seemed surprised that we wanted hot water. (During our stay in Panama we came to find out that in many places the people just had water tanks and whatever the temp was outside that was the temperature of the water.) They hooked up a propane tank so that we would have hot water. We still had problems with the plumbing. Turn on the hot water it was scalding hot, add cold water water would quickly cool down to cold. So it was like a game to swich the cold on and off and try to rinse quickly. Breakfast was good. We were served fresh eggs, toast, orange juice and another item i can not remember. All in all it was a pleasent place to stay.
