“Great place on a beautiful island!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Casa del Sol was perfect for our stay or four nights on Contadora Island. It's one of the cheaper options on the islands and is a great value. The rooms come with a coffeemaker toaster and mini fridge that is stocked daily with your continental breakfast. Peter, who manages the hotel, was very accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. The place is a little outside of the main part of town but if you want to explore the island they rent out 4x4s for a great price. It's definitely worth it to rent one while you are there. We loved the island and it's beautiful (and often deserted!) beaches.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

We stayed for 5 days in February, 2014 in the studio apartment. Anke picked us up and gave us a good island orientation tour. She was full of answers and information when we had questions all during our stay. We are walkers, so we walked everywhere and enjoyed our island and beach wanderings. It was pretty hot at mid-day; a good time to shade up. The apartment was very basic; we had to run the a/c more than we would have liked, but it was just too warm for us. We are also swimmers, which led to the biggest disappointment of our stay - jellyfish! The waters around the island teem with tiny, translucent jellies at this time of year that you can't help but brush up against when swimming. We love to swim and snorkel. The beaches and water are beautiful and a nice temperature, but we got stung by jellyfish daily every swim during our stay. The sting rashes are irritating, and go away in a few hours, but it put a major damper on our ocean excursions and ability to cool off during the heat.

We didn't stay at the Bed & Breakfast but at one of their apartment near by. The staff picked us up at the ferry, did a tour of the island and were really nice!

Clean, the screened terrace with a dining table and a hammock were amazing!!!

When I sent an email inquiring about the property and the availability, I got a really prompt response from the owner who tried to accommodate us as best as he could considering we were last minute!

The couple that manages the property are very welcoming and knowledgable. We had a great stay. Excellent room. More fun on the island than at the resport in Panama. We will be back for another stay with the entire family

I went with a group of friends for the weekend and found this house a very good deal.
Since the moment of booking, we were pleasantly well attended, they picked us up on the beach we arrived and took us to the house.
The house comes with everything you need and even more. It is cozy and is in a very good shape for a good rest.
Also, having the car (Kawasaki) is pretty convenient since we could move around easily.

We rented la casa pacifica while we were there. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for my family. The kitchen was fully stocked with plates/utensils. There was a washer/dryer on site which was nice. Backyard and patio area was definitely my favorite. AND the house has wifi. The only downside was that the water pressure and temperature was not very stable, but that's not the end of the work. A good value for your money and a comfortable place to stay.

Room Tip: BRING CASH. There are no ATMs on this island.

One of the best place to stay in Isla Contadora. Contadora has not much choices to stay. It is clean, confortable with WiFi, Tv,AC, good beds, plenty of natural light, surronded by the beautiful forest. The breakfast is included but nothing special. Close by to the best beach for me: Playa Cacique and one of the best restaurants: Casa Tortuga. My husband and I spent 2 nights in the Pelicano Room. For me the best room since is blue. Others are orange, red. The host Tony picked after arriving with the Las Perlas Ferry from the Ocean Deck Trump Tower hotel, and gave us a nice tour while our suitcases arrive from the Ferry by boat. There is not pier in Isla Contadora. Take in account this. It is better to rent a golf car which is the common trasportation vehicle there. Things there are expensive but the beaches, the green forest, the stars and for two nights Isla Contadora really deserves a journey. Thanks Tony and the staff for your hospitality.

Room Tip: The blue room call Pelicano. Plenty of light at the back of the house. Big enough.
