The location was very good with a lovely beach behind the hotel and the hotel is right next to the airport. The airport noise was non-existant. The hotel restaurant is very popular especially for lunches. The accommodation is out the back behind the restaurant. My Room was clean, comfortable and a good size with double bed, wardrobe, room safe ,...

If you are going to the Hawaii of Panama, Contadora Island (which is incredibly beautiful), and someone refers you to B&B Gerald's, there can be only one expression to sum up our experience: RUN AWAY AS FAST AND AS FAR AS YOU CAN. Do NOT, even if given the room for free, stay at this B&B. It started when we...

I stayed at Gerald's based on a previous review that detailed it's location as "one stop shopping", and it was spot on. Comfortable accommodations, combined with a quality restaurant, and add a prime location. The hosts, Gerald and his wife (forgot her name), provided a "home away from home" feel to this property. Gerald even tended the bar, and provided...

Lovely, clean rooms with air-con, ceiling fan, fridge and Spanish/English TV channels. Shower was powerful but there was no hot water during our 2 night stay which was a real shame as I couldn't fault the room otherwise. The restaurant serves good food but is a bit overpriced. We ate at some of the locally run cafés for much less....

We contacted Gerald's by phone (as we know on-line reservations are not always the best idea at small hotels in Panama). We booked a room and were told to fill out the on-line form. We did, including credit card info, etc. We got a confirmation number, and a note that they would follow up with an email. Apparently a confirmation...

The room are clean, wi fi work ok, top location next to the ferry arrival and 2 small supermarkets. Breakfast is fine. The biggest asset is the manager, a charming girl called Alaisa.

As Jan-olofO said in the review below, choosing accommodation on Isla Contadora is not easy. There are budget places and there are expensive (over-priced from what we were told!) places. Gerald's is a good value option somewhere in between. Just a couple of minutes walk to either Playa Larga or Playa Galeon the location is excellent. The ferry comes in...

Choosing a lodging on Isla Contadora is not an easy task there are a number of point to take into consideration! 1. Where shall I eat lunch and dinner? 2. Am I going on whale safari? 3. Will I stay close to the water taxis to Panama City? 4. Will I be close to super markets? 5. Do I need...
