My husband and I stayed on the island from 1 till 7, May 2013. It was a very pleasant stay really. The island is beautiful, the sea is clear and very warm. The beaches are good, white sand, nice surrounding. There are more civilised beaches, like near Villa Romantico with sunbeds and bar nearby. We preferred plya Larga and the Nudist beach (though you do not have to be nude there). There was nothing there exept sand and trees, but no people at all and amaising view. You can find a couple of restourants on the island, the food is good, fresh fish. Contadora Island Inn is a nice place to stay. Clean and quiet, not big. It has no direct access to the beach, you may want to rent a golf cart for tansportation. The island is small but it is not flat and it might be hard to walk uphill/downhill in a hot afternoon. Tony, the manager, is great! Very helpful. He really cares for guests and this place. I definitly recommend this B&B.
If you are planning a trip to Contadora you probably should keep in mind the following: it is not a 5 star super resort, it's a simple island where people can just enjoy nature and peace. Water is a problem. Hot water does not exsist, you will have kind of warm, but since it's very hot, it's ok. No big varaity at breakfast. You will have eggs every morning plus fruits, toasts, jam, juice. I brought some cheese with me as I cannot have eggs 6 mornings in a row.
It was a very nice, very relaxing vacations.
