Great escape. Clean, economical, friendly owner Cynthia. Neat island. Cynthia also owns a terrific restaurant in town.Would go again in a heartbeat. Get the fish sandwich at her restaurant. The island is close to Panama City and a great escape. Restaurant is Gourmet!!

After 2 years I came back to Panama and of course I had to visit Taboga which means I HAD to go to Cerrito Tropical. The place is renewed. New doors, new veranda, new face!! the optics are more than great. So I had the LA PALMA suite and I had it all. The view from my private balcony was breathtaking. I had comfortable chairs to sit and let my mind escape routine, cold beverages in my own kitchen, the rooms have a new style and decorations are very well thought of. On top of it all, I had hot water and free wifi that reached inside my bedroom. I wasnt expecting any less to be honest, but the new face of Cerrito lifted my spirit from the minute I set foot on the property. To be honest, Cerrito did it again!

I don´t know where to start...everything´s was just perfect! The room, the price, the view, the owner Cynthia..... After having a bad experience in another hotel I spent a wonderful night in an accommodation for four and had the best view you could get on the island. The price for the room was ridiculously low. It costs you about 2 USD to get from the hotel to the beach, but it was worth the money. I was also able to store my lugguage at Cynthia´s restaurent for almost the whole afternoon. Tabogo itself is not worth visiting it, but staying in this hotel and enjoying the beautiful view from the balcony is definitely worth the visit!

Thank you so much for choosing us! What a beautiful review, you are so kind. If guests like to walk there are some interesting walking routes through the village that will get you to the beach. We offer the storage for luggage because it makes it much easier when it is time to leave, plus you can enjoy a delicious lunch and frothy ice cold drink with a beach view from our Calaloo Restaurant. Our guests become like family. Hope to see you again someday.

After 15 days of having booked and canceled the 50% we arrived at the hotel and we got the surprise they lost our reservation We called the person in charge and did not know how to solve the excuse that we could not communicate either by CELLPHONE, EMAIL, CHAT ... they were very rude, they never came to try to help us, they wanted to give us a small room without kitchen, No refrigerator for which we paid, did not have the concideracion to give us the face to give us the money, so we had to go to the restaurant of the hotel that is at the beginning of the island withdraw our money (AT NO TIME DISAPPOINTED) and We had to get another hotel, at least the other Hotel was clean and the people were KIND. I recommend it only if you want to take a bad impression of the island, which

Dear Sonia Thank you for your comments. Taboga is a beautiful island. Without a reference to your reservation we have difficulty to address your issues. However, the person in charge on site is able to communicate by phone, and by chat. As in our website, the owners are not always onsite however we have a person 24 hours a day managing Cerrito. We have refrigerators in all the rooms. If you did not have it it may have been being serviced, we could have supplied one. Not all our rooms have kitchens, please be aware that if you want a kitchen the rate is higher and it is an apartment you are booking, not a room. Bed and breakfast rooms do not have kitchens. We are the most economical accommodation on Taboga and support the local economy by having local employees; we believe in sustainable tourism. We do our best to offer our clients a friendly, relaxed service, however we are not 5 star, and do not profess to be 5 star. It is good to see your received your refund 100% when it was not what you expected. We were very busy. There was no discussion, we want our clients to be satisfied. So in the end you did not stay with us, so unfortunately we did not have the chance to allow you to experience the relaxed atmosphere, the fresh breezes, the hammocks, and the ocean view we offer from the balcony. We are happy you enjoyed Taboga. Thank you for your comments,
