Lovely Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing stay. Woke up every morning with a dip in the private pool then made breakfast. Sun bathed, went kayaking, watched the sunset on the beach in a hammock. The place was well maintained. Nice staff came to clean every late morning. Nice way to feel like a billionaire for a couple days. :)

Beautiful home, great staff, amazing beach.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my boyfriend for a nice getaway. We had the most wonderful time! The staff are super friendly, the house is extremely well kept and is located right on the beautiful beach. It was a great experience and we can't wait to go back!

Relaxed Comfortable Beach Villa

  • 5 of 5

This cliff top beach home offered both an ample swimming pool and a stairway down to a secluded golden sandy beach and a comfortable family room right on the beach. It boasted hammocks and chairs, with some good reading; a table tennis table and a kayack for the more energetic!

It would be hard to surpass this relaxed family beach side home that came with three good sized bedrooms and two baths - two bedrooms opening onto the Terrace and pool area. There was an indoor dining and sitting room with kitchen and outside a selection of tables and chairs around the pool that had a bar at one end.

Our family reunion was enhanced by the setting. Staff were both helpful and unobtrusive. And the house had a manual that answered all basic questions.

We loved staying - and we will be back.

Unfortunately, not as nice as the photos.

  • 2 of 5

Our group of seasoned travelers, who have stayed in many vacation homes, unfortunately were collectively disappointed with the overall condition of this house once we arrived. Several items were in disrepair or in very poor condition as noted below.

• The air conditioner for the living room did not work and some of the light fixtures in the house did not work. Our kids were supposed to sleep in the living room but it was far too hot so they had to sleep with us. Bummer.

• The Formica kitchen counter was broken and falling apart by the sink.

• Many pots and pans were old and unsafe to use (teflon was flaking off). Many of the knives were rusty and the kitchen was not properly stocked with utensils.

• Several tiles in the pool were cracked and had been “repaired” very sloppily by glopping on tons of caulk.

• The water level in the pool was significantly lower than it should have been. The water level in the pool was low enough that our 3 kids could not grasp the sides nor could we see them when they played. Imagine swimming in a quarry. This is a safety issue and we should have been told about before we arrived. We read in a previous review before we arrived that a rail (with a 50’ drop!) was missing by the pool. When we asked about it we were assured it had been fixed. It was not. When we complained, it was fixed a few days later.

• The outdoor fans were not working.

• There was trash, including broken glass (which I picked up) on the beach sand near the base of the stairs leading down to the beach.

What was also disappointing, is that the photos of the house used on VRBO make it seem so nice. The house itself seems much more 'aged' than the photos would have you think. The house is really showing it's age.

We contacted the owner/manager about out disappointment. All we got was silence (no response). I would not recommend this property at all. There are many nicer places on the island to stay at.

Also, other commenters have indicated that food prices are sky high. It is true. You will gasp in disbelief at the price of some food items. What we should have done is buy all of our food and alcoholic beverages needed for our stay at grocery stores in Panama City.

There is a water shortage on the island so the tap water is undrinkable. Not the house's fault.

Very, Very Disappointed with this House

  • 2 of 5

Our group of three small families recently stayed at this house in March 2016. After we arrived, our group of seasoned travelers were collectively disappointed with the overall condition of the house. Several items were in disrepair or in very poor condition as noted below.

• The air conditioner for the living room did not work and some of the light fixtures in the house did not work.

• The Formica kitchen counter was chipped, cracked and falling apart by the sink.

• Many pots and pans were old and unsafe to use (non-stick coating was flaking off). Many of the knives were rusty and the kitchen was not properly stocked. Some cabinets were dirty.

• Several tiles in the pool were cracked and had been “repaired” very sloppily.

• The water level in the pool was low enough that our 3 kids could not grasp the sides.

• The pool and the area surrounding the pool was not kept as clean as expected on a daily basis (based on the price we were paying). Wispy, "fluffy" seeds from nearby trees kept accumulating in the pool and surrounding area.

• The outdoor fans were not working.

• There was trash, including broken glass (which I picked up) on the beach sand near the base of the stairs leading down to the beach.

What was also disappointing, is that the photos of the house used on VRBO, must be much older photos, as the photos make the house appear much nicer than it is in actuality. The house is much more aged and run down than the photos make it. Using the old photos, and many night time photos is deceptive for anyone trying to ascertain the current condition of your house.

We contacted the owner/manager about out disappointment. All we got was silence (no response). Do not make the same mistake that my travel mates did. I would not recommend this property at all. There are many nicer places on the island to stay at.

Also, other commenters have indicated that food prices are sky high. It is true. You will gasp in disbelief at the price of some food items. What we should have done was buy all of our food and alcoholic beverages needed for our stay at grocery stores in Panama City. We could have brought our heavy grocery supplies on the ferry with us, but we were limited with what we could bring because we flew and the airplane has weight restrictions. While we were there, we were told there was a water shortage on the island. We were told to drink bottled water because the water from the tap was too salty.

Like much of the island, the bloom is off the rose

  • 3 of 5

The site for the house is fantastic and the beaches around Contadora are varied and lovely - great swimming and exploring and interesting geological formations - there are several nice restaurants on the island - we found plenty of variety for our three night stay (Casa Tortuga the best - make a res) - the housekeeping and support staff are friendly and accommodating, but...

- the AC in the main living area does not work - the bedroom units are fine

- the water level in the pool was too low to reach the filter intake so the water quality made it un-swimmable

- there were only three chairs in good repair for use on the beach

- numerous lightbulbs were missing or burned out so we moved some around as we needed

- the fence on the pool deck at the three story elevation was missing a middle rail making this a danger to children

- the golf cart is very useful but, like the house, it had seen better days - steering and braking were challenges - the lights are turned by twisting two bare wires together - removing the key can also pull the switch panel out of the dashboard

A note about the island itself. There is much beauty especially along the coast, but there are numerous buildings in complete abandonment from days gone by. There are two operating grocery stores (mercados) where we found everything we needed (at a price!); nevertheless we ate all lunches and dinners out.

If you are looking for a little adventure there are many different tours you can go on such as island tours, whale watching (between the months of July to October) certified diving trips, fishing, snorkeling and biking.

You may enjoy any of Contadora's 13 beautiful beaches which encircle the island, or take excursions to nearby islands, most of which are uninhabited, and find your own private beach for sunbathing and picnicking. Just across the way is Pacheca Island, roosting spot for magnificent frigate birds and an excellent spot for bird watching. Healthy coral reefs are intact directly offshore from Playa Galeón and Playa Larga.

For a truly private beach experience it is also possible to take a boat to one of the archipelago's uninhabited islands.

The water that surrounds Isla Contadora is ideal for a myriad of different water activities. Diving and snorkeling are among the most popular activities, and there is a small dive shop in town that can equip visitors with the necessary equipment.

Contadora is the only island in the archipelago with a developed tourist infrastructure. Beaches are spectacular, the snorkeling is world class, and the island is a great jumping-off point for independent exploration of the archipelago.
