I went to Taboga on a day trip with a group of 18 retirees. The beach is on the right side of the ferry terminal and Cerrito Tropical is on the left side of the terminal when you get off the boat. Although we did not stay in Cerrito Tropical but we pre-arranged lunch there with the owner. Someone from the hotel came to meet us as we got off the boat. The hotel is on a steep slop about 5 minutes walk from the ferry terminal. It is a pleasant walk to the hotel, lots of beautiful flowers along the narrow street. Cynthia, the owner was so kind to offer us the use of their facilities as some of us wanted to swim in the ocean. We ordered drinks there on their little terrace, very relaxing and most of us was so happy to stay there and just enjoy the surrounding or use their hammock ( they should start selling hammocks as a few of us had to make a trip to the art and craft market to get one before leaving the next morning because it was so comfortable). The lunch we had was very good and everyone loved their desserts. I think it was called Tres leche ( three milk). There is a path next to the property and one can take a walk in the shades. The let us use one of the unoccupied bedroom which had an en-suite. The windowless room was clean and decent in size with simple furniture, the shower room is at the end of the room which has window, therefore if someone else is in the bathroom, the other person would have to turn the light on but one does not stay in the room except for bed, and they have nice open terraces and green area for guests to use. The owner told us that they are refurbishing the rooms as well as making all rooms with windows. I believe they held wedding receptions there too which is not a bad location at all for a simple but memorable and exotic wedding. Apparently they offer group retreats as well as Massages in their forest should you wish or in your own room at weekends. We walked around the island after our lunch before headed back to the ferry terminal. It is good to book round trip ticket at busy time. We would be back again, Taboga Island is a lay back relaxing island and a great escape from the city.
