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. She welcomes us with a superb smile and was always there to assist. The restaurant at night is very expensive. 76 US$ for a 2 adults and...

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...

Gerald's is about as nice as you can get on the island. The food is better at Gerald's then other places we tried as well. This is an under developed island with not much to do so more then a day or two stay may be too long.

Clean room. Convenient location. Easy walk to the beach. Friendly staff. Food was ok. A power line was cut on the other side of the island and not only affected electricity, but the water also. So ,no AC and no water until 10:30 that night. Dinner was still offered. Deer were nearby as were cavies and iguanas. One major disappointment...

At the end of a long trip that ended in Panama, we decided to visit Isla Contadora to do some whale-watching. The reviews we read for lodging on the island indicated that Gerald's was one of the better choices, and we felt lucky to get 2 rooms (my in-laws joined us for the last week of our trip). We took...

We liked the hotel although they could work a bit on their garden. The food in the restaurant was generally good, and service was fast when we were the only guests, but they were unable to cope when there were more guests. It then got totally chaotic and we had to wait forever for our food. They should really think...

My boyfriend and I planned to stay at Gerald's one night on Contadora Island (which we had visited for scuba diving). Our scuba guide had suggested Gerald's when we set up our scuba reservation, so we decided to try it. The day we went to Contadora Island, there had been a huge storm. After getting there following a delayed flight,...

A great place to stay in Contadora Island. We went there by catamaran (1 hour). Gerald's is near the harbor, 5 minutes walk. Simple but clean rooms in nice garden. Friendly service. In the garden you see humming birds, deers and big rodents. The restaurant serves good dishes in friendly ambiance. Very near to 2 nice beaches. Warmly recommended.

“The Shower controls can be tricky , practice before you shower to get the water temperature close to where you want it. Rooms on the ground floor give you a better opportunity to interact with Gerald's pet Deer.”
