We feel cheated! At our visit to the Point hotel at Contadora Island in Easter week 2016 the pool was closed and damaged, the tv service at rooms didn't work, our room air-conditioning was not working and they had to repair... Very poorly presented breakfast... All areas of the hotel abandoned... And the rate was as if it were a... More

We visited contadora island and stayed at this dated hotel. Overall the hotel is run down and in need of knocking down. Apart from the poor condition of showers, dirty rooms and overall bad place they charged us 12 dollars to have eggs with our all included breakfast. Don't waste your time with these jokers.

This is a grand old hotel on a beautiful beach only 100 yards (or less) from the airstrip, a grocery (small market) and at least 5 restaurants. HOWEVER the place is quite run down and neglected. But, most everything Ive seen here is. Maintenance seems to be the lowest priority here and will be the crash of the tourist industry... More

I cannot emphasize the beautiful location of this hotel, all other aspects were really disappointing. We were met off the small plane by a guy with a golf buggy and driven about 200 metres down hill and hey presto your there. I must say at this point that I only saw the guy one more time, watch this space----. The... More

Pictures make this place look decent, not great but definitely do-able. Don't waste your money on a "day pass" here. The beach area is very pretty but there are no other amenities. The pool was partially full but dirty, no one was at the bar or restaurant so we didn't get a chance to eat.....although I'm sure we didn't miss... More

I am not a "hotel snob". This hotel, in spite of the convenient location and nice staff, is just plain and simply B A D. It is not just tired - it's worn out beyond repair. The photos do not show the current condition. The boardwalks are falling apart, and in many places extremely dangerous! Broken tiles are trip hazards.... More

The hotel is right next to the drop off from the ferry. It is right across from airport but not many planes fly out of there. It is relatively small and quaint. It is not fancy and needs major updating but is perfect for an overnight stay. It has free wifi, hot water, air conditioning, and a simple breakfast. There... More

Contadora island is a fantastic destination with just the right balance of things to do and nothing to do at all. The choices of hotels are limited and this is a great place for family. The rooms all have gorgeous views, hot showers, cold AC and even crib available for the little ones. The only thing lacking is a restaurant... More

Contadora is not a very big island, and the Point is the easiest place to get to. Whether arriving by ferry or plane, the Point is the first resort you see. We stayed over Christmas and had a wonderful time. The beach is amazing and was quiet most of our days. The pool was warm and clean, and again we... More

My family stayed in this hotel for several days while we explored Contadora. The grounds of the hotel have so much potential, and I can tell they were once quite nice. The pool, thatched roof dining area, and outdoor lounge areas would have been awesome, if the hotel was better maintained. It's the tropics, and a secluded island, so I... More
