Ron J wrote a review Feb 2017
Lodi, Wisconsin
Having a recommendation made to us, we stayed here for two nights. Well worth it. Good people who took good care of us. While the taxi carts are available we enjoyed the walk, multiple times up and down the hill and down the main passage of Taboga. The quiet gardens and hammock respites are a real treat.

Dear Ron, We really appreciate your lovely review and that fact that you appreciated our location on the hill, while it is a climb it offers a lovely view, quiet, safe and has fresh breezes due to our hillside location beside the forest. About the breakfast, we offer 2 options of stay, with and without breakfast. The breakfast value is $4.50 plus tax and set breakfast includes 2 eggs, toast, jam and coffee or tea or pancakes. Yours may have been included. If you wish to have more food the chef can whip up an omelet or extra pancakes etc. I mention this because we have many future guests who read our responses and reviews. We truly appreciate your stay and comments! Thank you

Me quedo solo con imágenes que tal vez ninguno de los huéspedes han podido constatar como evidencia y de que en verdad el hotel está en crítico. Pero para los amantes de turismo aventura es recomendable. Consta con aire acondicionado, nevera, y desayuno incluido. Dear owner your work at this place "Taboga Island " is your passion, it seems on every letter you respond to your guests.....love what you do, accept your guest opinions with emphaty, affection, charm, respect and more love, ask your guest how pleasant were their stay there at your hotel and finally, last but not less important, be loyal with yourself, (no wifi Taboga16 is no good, no recepcionist in her or his place of work during day nor the night, no gas tank, very very poor breakfast and poor backyard view) that

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your stay and choosing us. I would like to respond to your comments. Our location is on a hillside beside the natural rainforest with an ocean view from the balconies. We have many returning guests because of our view and relaxing ambiance. We are a lodge on a humble island which we love. The WIFI works very well outside of the rooms and also depends on how many guests are using it; inside of most of the rooms it works depending on your equipment; we have 2 rooms that because of their location you must be outside of the bedroom to get good signal. We do not have a full time receptionist (we have 6 rooms only), we have a lady who receives our guests (or she may be cleaning - she is also the housekeeper) and is on site 6 days a week until 1 or 2 pm and weekends 5 pm. We have Aristides who stays onsite overnight and is available on request to cook or if you have requirements, such as switching an empty gas tank. The ground floor rooms do not have a view from the room and we tell everyone that in our descriptions of the rooms. Our breakfast consists of 2 eggs, toast, jam and coffee for $5 tax included. If you wish more you can always request more at additional cost. If you do not wish breakfast we can reduce your room rate. We are not a luxury place, we are a locally sustainable tourism lodge run by a local family. Our visitors choose us so they can get to know the heart and soul of Taboga. There are more luxurious places but as our lower rates reflect we are one of the most economical places. Thank you again for your stay.

B&B Hotel Cerrito has the most beautiful view on Taboga . The owner Cynthia and her staff, especially Aristides make sure you have everything you need to make you feel comfortable. The location is great you can walk to the beaches but it is nice to sit in a hammock at the Inn and relax. The rooms are nice and clean and the A/C works great. Be sure to eat at the Calaloo Beach, Fish Bar & Grill best food and atmosphere on the Island.

Just as the best city neighborhood in Panama City is Via Argentina, the best place for a quiet relaxing getaway from city excitement is at Senora Cynthia's B&B over-looking the Pacific perched above Isla Taboga. She's from P.E.I., Canada . My family was more than pleased with our stay. Good service: and if you need anything the caretaker of the property is always down below. We took one of the upper apartments , walked around the island , talked to locals, and spent a few days on the beaches. There is also a partner restaurant belonged to the same right on the main walkwy below the B&B. The ferry from Amador only takes 35 minutes and if you call before the taxi will be waiting for you. Worth a visit as it's also the closest island to Panama City.

We stayed at Cerrito B and B for I week in the one beadroom apartment with a kitchenette. The view from our room was just beautiful. The rooms were very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a hot breakfast each morning which was very tasty and filling. The price of the B and B was very reasonable. We are planning on going back to Taboga Island in the future and would stay at Cerrito B and B again. We have even recommended this B and B to our friends. It was a real pleasure to meet such wonderful, helpful and friendly staff. This is perfect get a way to just chill and relax. It is well run small family B and B on a remote island.

Thank you so much for your kind review. We also enjoyed your stay with us. It was a pleasure to see you enjoying your time and experiencing local people and culture (plus see you learning Spanish!), the nearby nature, afternoon breezes, and our food! Fresh fish from the island; Panamanian special dishes; recipes with Caribbean flavors and homemade desserts. We look forward to your next visit soon!
