When you imagine what a B&B on a simple island off the coast of Panama would look like, this is pretty much it. As some others have noted, the beds/linens/towels aren't world class, but they are hardly a disaster. They are simple, and we had zero issue with the accommodations. The upstairs two bedroom has amazing hammocks to sit and... More

Thank you very much for your review. We appreciate reviews with constructive criticism so that we can help our staff improve. It was Carnival and we were completely full and the girls did their best under the circumstances to get the rooms cleaned for you, our staff are humble people from Taboga and have no international experience, we do our...

We stayed there at the end of October and had a lovely time. The owner took us up the hill (which, if you walked up and down it certainly would be good exercise) on the golf cart and they were very friendly and helpful. I had to change the date several times and Cynthia was very accomodating with our schedule.... More

We stayed in the upper level 2 bedroom apartment. It's furnished with bad thrift store finds. It's clear no money was put into this property. The A/C unit barely in the bedroom barely put out any cold air in the tiny bedroom. The day we arrived, the kitchen staff had the day off. The manager on duty failed to mention... More

Dear SunPrincess, We always appreciate both positive and negative comments because they help us improve. However it always appreciated to hear these things during the stays of guests so issues can be addressed at that time. Upon request we would have gladly had the chef come in on his day off and prepare meals for you to your taste. We... More

A group of us recently visited Panama. As a part of that trip, we decided to spend Valentine's Day on Isla Taboga [Taboga Island] just an hours boat ride off of Panama City. We booked into the B&B Cerrito Tropical and, after looking around town some, we checked in. The B&B is at the far end of the town, and... More

We visited Taboga for two and a half days over New Years and stayed at the B&B Hotel Cerrito. We enjoyed our stay, and the proprietor Cynthia made us feel very much at home and was a great resource for our time on the island, particularly given our limited Spanish. We stayed in the upper level two bedroom apartment, and... More

I visited Taboga Island for the day with 15 USA college students. Instead of going to the big (tourist's) beach on the right side of the ferry exit, we walked to the left and parked ourselves on the beach in front of the restaurant Calaloo (a yellow building). Cynthia, the owner rented chairs and umbrellas (2 chairs/1 umbrella for $15;... More

If it weren't for the efforts of the staff, this place would have rated but a single star. And while the small staff tried hard to please, it was apparent they weren't given any direction by what I would loosely describe as "management". I had originally chosen the Cerrito because (a) it received the #1 ranking (of 2) and (b)... More
