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.

We spent 3 nights in one of their cabanas, with 2 BR and 3 bath. Had some selfcooked meals at the house and some at the restaurant. Very convinient! Once we brought our catch of the day and at Gerald's they cooked it for us and served all the side dishes, excellent! Really just a short walk from the beach,...

Service was great, room was the perfect size for the two of us, A/C was cool, beds were comfortable, bonus hammock right out side the door! The breakfast was fine. Lobster dinner was overcooked and mushy which was incredibly disappointing. Gerald's is a 5 minute walk from where the boat drops you, but they pick you up and deliver you...

The service was nice and welcoming. The starters and dessert were a bit better for me than the actual main courses. The shrimp caesar salad was delicious and the patacones were very well done. The main course of pescado a lo macho was a bit too peppery for my taste, a sauce much too heavy for fish and langoustines. The...

Arriving at BB Gerald, we were welcomed by Gerald himself. A fast, efficent and friendly check in was followed by a small tour of the guest house and the area surrounding the property. We loved it at first sight and as the week progressed, things only turned out for the better. Contadora is a fantastic small island and I'm surprised...

“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.”
