It is a very exclusive and quiet Island and If you are looking to rest and relax away from it all, this is the place to be.

There are about 3 convenient/grocery stores around the Island which have all of your basic needs.

There are also several Restaurants around the Island such as: Villa Romantica Restaurant, Geralds, Casa Tortuga and The Point Hotel Restaurant. We will take you to any restaurant on the Island.

Nature Friendly

Nature is one of the most beautiful things to observe while on the Island. Besides being able to scuba dive and sometimes during the right months being able to spot some whales and dolphins, there are Iguanas, birds and deers that can be seen all around.

Only a short 20 min flight from panama city

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last month for five days and absolutely loved it, for the following reasons:

Quick and easy booking; Adriana responded to our booking request within a day for last minute booking.

Upon hearing we were spending the wknd in Panama City before Pearl Islands, she suggested we pick up a few items from the mainland if we would want to cook, need anything for our stay (very limited grocer options)

She greeted us at the main port area/also the airstrip and took us on a brief island tour to point out key interests before taking us to the well-appointed villa.

Everything was above and beyond. Both Adriana and Jerry were friendly, comfortable folks whom you feel like you've known for a long time...

It was the details that truly set them apart. We mentioned we couldn't get eggs from the market and they gave us some of their own. They provided us a large jug of water for the in-house water machine for market price of $8 and set up an island tour right from the beach in from of the villa. They checked in on us enough with the right balance, as others have mentioned. There was really nothing more we could've wanted.

Fabulous - Relaxing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Jerry and Adriana's Villa Marquez, has always been a relaxing experience filled with Contadora sight-seeing and swimming at numerous beaches on the Island. (We also stayed in July of 2011.) Our favorite beach is the beach that gives to two reefs, which are inhabited by a myriad of fish just below Villa Marquez. Jerry and Adriana are eloquent host and hostess. Their knowledge of island history, great recommendations, and information promotes a most relaxing and enjoyable stay. Returning to Contadora Island and the Villa Marquez is always a pleasant memory and experience. We highly recommend their accommodations to all.

Gracious hosts and a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the guest house at Villa Marquez. Jerry and Adriana are wonderful hosts. If you need them, they are there to help and full of knowledge about the island and Panama, if not they are out of site. The apartment was nicely done and well appointed. We snorkeled almost every beach on the island and the snorkeling from their private beach was great. So many fish and we saw a turtle feeding.

Wonderful stay in Contadora

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a wonderful two nights on Contadora Island this past week. The guest house was tastefully furnished, spotless, spacious and comfortable. Adriana and Jerry were hospitable and helpful in every way and exceeded our expectations. The home is located walking distance from a beautiful white sand beach that is basically private the majority of the day. There is also another private beach area behind the home with breathtaking views of the ocean and rocky shoreline. We would not hesitate to recommend to anyone and plan on visiting again in the future.

Thank you Adriana and Jerry for making our stay comfortable and us welcome.

set your expectations

  • 2 of 5

Maybe the previous reviews were setting our expectations too high, but we were very disappointed with the apartment / guest house. The small terrace of the guest house faces the street, not the sea. There is no garden attached to it. The "private beach" is utterly dangerous to get to, has the stairs leading down to the beach are broken and a railing is missing. The golf cart we rented for an additional $ 40 per day from the owner was in really bad shape. We had to pay extra for our 2 girls (7 and 9 years), although the apartment has 2 bedrooms and this price increase was not mentioned in the listing. The apartments' equipment is not outstanding at all. We decided to leave two nights earlier out of our 5 booked nights, and ended up staying at a 5 star hotel in Panama City for the same rate.

Owner's Response: Dear Stephanie, Thank you for your review. We regret that your stay was “unsatisfactory” and would like to clear up some of your points. As for the small terrace; we have absolutely clear pictures on this page of the terrace, and for that matter it does have a partial view of the ocean, which is also stated on our VRBO. It is clear on the pictures that the terrace does not face the street and I encourage you to look through all of our pictures again. As for the stairs; again, there is a clear picture of them on our VRBO, and this is our own personal staircase, we only offer it as a convenience to our guests. The golf cart is completely optional; in fact, it is our very own personal golf cart, and again we only offer this as a convenience to our guests. We do not at all force or push anyone into renting our golf cart, we just let them know that it is an option if inclined to do so. If it was not up to your expectations, we would have gladly given you your money back and encouraged you to rent a golf cart from town for $75/day. In regards to our price/night as I’m sure you can understand we have rates on our VRBO that can change depending on the amount of people in the house, high or low season, etc. It is for this reason that we discuss everything clearly in an email prior to booking, and the guest (you) has the final word on whether you accept the price or not. We did not change the price once you got here, we kept the same price that we discussed in our emails. Yes, you did leave 2 nights earlier, and without 24hr notice, and you failed to mention that you were reimbursed $220 for this, even though we did not get a prior notice. You also failed to mention that you left half of your laundry in the washer machine, and we gladly sent this back to you upon your request. As I am sure you now know, this is a small island, not fit for anyone who has city expectations. I’m sure that your stay would not have been “unsatisfactory” had you researched Contadora Island and realized that it is a small 3 mile island. That being said, we encourage you to look back at our photos as we do not have any pictures that do not match the reality of our Guest Home. Lastly, we are not in the buisness of making people unhappy and if you had mentioned anything we would have been happy to reimburse you and taken you and your family somewhere else.

A Fantastic Place in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The casita was fantastic and exceeded our expectations. The furnishings and decorations were very tastefully done with plenty of room to relax. We hardly used the AC since the breeze was very pleasant off of the ocean. The property had a nice private beach with interesting cliffs and rocks. Snorkeling was excellent. We also saw a giant Macaw and deer right off the deck. The location is very centrally located to other beaches, village, and restaurants. Jerry and Adriana were very gracious hosts helping with travel arrangements and island activities. Adriana helped schedule an awesome fishing trip where we caught nice tuna and corvina. It was a perfect trip for us, and we hope to return as soon as we can.
