We went there without reservation. The owners are friendly and can tell you what to see on the island. The room is bit overpriced, but the whole island is! The room is okay, clean and big enough. The restaurant is good!!! The only thing which was not that nice was the garden around the b+b. If they improve this the...

After learning that the Point Hotel is incredibly overpriced and not very good, we had 2 wonderful dinners and 1 great lunch at Gerald's. The portions are huge and the food is delicious. The service is also relatively fast and the people are friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.

OK...so here's the thing. If you are going to Isla Contadora with the expectations of 5-star luxury and American standards of hotel services...you are going to be disappointed! Isla Contadora, as a whole, is somewhat rustic...and Gerald's seems to be at the top of the options. First off...it's not a bed & breakfast, it's a hotel (don't let the name...

We had heard such great things about Cantadora and were really looking forward to our visit. When we got to the room we saw a saggy, dirty couch, stains on the sheets, and bright red blood or sauce running down the wall. There was a soap container by the sink with no soap. The one in the shower was ripped...

My family was invited on a fishing trip to the Perlas Islands and we spent one night at Gerald's Bed & Breakfast. Rooms were sparse but clean and air conditioning was great after a day on the water. Great staff and the owner (Gerald) met us on the beach (prearranged) and drove our bags to his place while we walked....

My husband and I recently stayed at Gerald's for 3 days, the hotel is very clean and staff is very friendly. While we were there the rooftop pool was initially very dirty, but it was closed the very next day. I know that we were there during the slow season, so that may be why. Everything we ate from the...

...otherwise the review would be "terrible". Seeing that this place got such great reviews, I was quite frankly shocked to come to hotel room and find an extremely sparse room, a bed with stained sheets, a safe not bolted to the wall, and two giant puddles of water from a badly leaking roof. The property itself was in poor shape,...

My wife and I stayed at Gerald's for 3 nights, and I have to say we were a little disappointed over all. When we arrived on the ferry in the morning, we were told our room would not be ready until 2 pm, told to come back. Given that the island is suffering an acute water shortage, and the other...
