Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Upon arriving, Helbert, the manager, picked us up at the ferry. He provided his contact information in anticipation of our arrival and made himself available to help us at any time. Check-in time was at 2pm and the ferry arrived early, so he let us keep our bags in storage and spend some time in the pool area / beach by the hotel. Our room was very spacious, as we were lucky enough to get upgraded to a larger suite. Accommodations were very decent and clean. Attention was where Villa Condesa really shined, as Helbert offered to drive us anywhere on the island at any time, essentially eliminating the need to rent a golf cart. He also gave us great recommendations on sightseeing and food. We would for sure return to Villa Condesa

Very excited to come here and spend a quiet relaxed time with the family. The photos are completely outdated, and to pay that much for a place per night, you should wish to have great time without any problems. In the VIP suite, the “kitchen” is basically non functioning, and very old. The A/C in the VIP seem odd because they don’t work properly and need to be both on to feel somewhat cool . The floor is outdated but the bed was VERY comfortable, and the view there was amazing. The shower pressure for the water was very hard and the bidet did not work . We had to constantly ask for toilet paper. Then in the main room, we switched back upstairs and the two smaller rooms both had a/c problems. The one that had a portable a/c had problems,because where the hole is, it is not sealed properly, therefore , letting hot air in. In the room with an attached bathroom on the outside, the air wasn’t working, they brought someone to fix it and it still didn’t work . It worked for 3 hours and then stopped. The water smelt disgusting . That room also had an outdoor shower, but no cover for the top, so at night if you turned the light on all the bugs went straight there. The room said it could sleep 4 as there was a bunk bed type, however, no adult could sleep at the top because they would hit their heads. There was dust EVERYWHERE, the lamps needed to be dusted and many things needed to be fixed. The kitchen was lacking appliances , all pots, but no covers except for one. For paying this much you would expect some updated items but no . The kitchen cabinets seem to be falling . The cutlery seemed like they were hand me downs, I washed everything I used because it just didn’t seem clean. The wall by the pool is about to collapse and they have it held up by 2 branches . The stairs to head to the beach is a disaster waiting to happen, and also the photos make it seem like you have a private beach, you don’t so don’t assume that. Also we had no locks on our door,nor in the vip suite, so we just had to “trust” everyone, which I didn’t like , because when something gets stolen, who is to blame? Their excuse was it was very safe, and they had cameras , but that hasn’t stopped robbers before… Theres so much more to say but overall, I would not come back here, the one good thing about this was their caretakers marcela and sebastien who were very helpful and tried to make us feel welcomed .

This is the first negative review I have written. First the good points - Beautiful beach and beautiful views from the property and friendly on site manager. We were 'upgraded' due to overbooking to the presidential suite. This does have great views, but the spa has been broken along time and is empty. The kitchen consists of some appliances all plugged into one power point, and you can only operate two things at a time. We were given no keys, as the locks didn't work so had to leave everything in our room with unlocked doors. The pool area has no umbrellas for shade. The pool kitchen/bbq area consists of broken cupboards, no gas for bbq, and broken sink not plumbed in, and broken electrics. The fence around the pool is broken and in other places poorly repaired with a significant drop. The pool itself was nice but relies on the rain to get it filled. The beach house, is not cleaned. consists of broken and grubby furniture, and large holes in the roof. In fact one sheet of roofing slid off when we were there. The rooms are not cleaned. There is no shared kitchen area. There is a kayak without seats. The place is neglected and the front part of the property, the outbuildings have all fallen down and just parts remain. After complaining to the owner, she offered a 10% discount. Very poor. The suite is $400usd a night, thankfully we didn't pay that because of the over booking. Do not expect to get what you see on the current web site photos. Disappointing.

Estuve con mi esposo y mis dos hijos y fue excelente,,, a pesar que la piscina no me gusto ya que se veia un poco desactualizada todo el resto de las areas cocina, comedor, sala de estar (inclusive con juegos de mesa estaban bien equipadas, me encanto la cocina con todos los implementos necesarios para cocinar, el lugar super privado y con acceso a la playa directo es un pluss,,, la atencion de Carlos en particular fue excelente, inclusive hasta tomo de su tiempo para jugar tiro al blanco con mi esposo,, hizo de nuestra estadia algo especial, incluso nos recomendo los lugares a donde podiamos visitar,,, me parece que hasta vi una ballena a pesar que no fuimos en temporada,,, en fin el lugar para pasarla privadamente es excelente,,, un poco costoso para mi gusto pero con todas las comodidades que necesitas para pasarla en familia,,, en cuanto a las fotos de portada un poco diferentes a lo que encuentras, pero de igual forma el lugar cumplió con mis requerimientos,,,,, saludos a Cristine que fue muy atenta al momento de reservar via mail.,,,

We stayed at this place in march 2016, a family of 8. I don't understand all the positive reviews of this place. It’s in dire need of updates and the price they charge per night is totally unjustified. I’m happy to pay up for a nice accommodation, especially if the place appears as nice as the professionally-taken photos in their profile. What we found was nothing of the sort. All of the photos are taken at just the right times and angles, which leaves out important details. First, the pool was only about 2/3rd full of water. Fine, we went during the dry season, but plenty of pools are salt water and given that the water from the tap was salt water, I don’t think topping off the pool with sea water would have been a big deal. Second, the pool was full of detritus from the surrounding trees. It should have been cleaned every day while guests were there, but I only saw the caretaker clean it once. Second, there were a number of problems indoors. The air conditioning unit in the living room did not work. In 95 degree weather, it made things quite uncomfortable indoors unless you wanted to stay in the bedroom the whole time. There should be no excuse for a broken A/C unit when it’s listed as an amenity. Also, the kitchen was in really bad shape. The laminate counters were peeling in several areas. They have a cutting board placed over one area as a cover up. The cutlery and dishware looks like it was purchased at a garage sale. Granted, this place is on an isolated island so you can’t expect perfection, but don’t charge top prices unless you can deliver a top level accommodation. Lastly, there was dangerous broken glass on the stairs heading down to the beach. We saw old blood stains on the stairs, so obviously a previous occupant had fallen victim already. And the golf cart was also very dangerous. The brakes barely worked and the steering was extremely wobbly. I would never allow any tenant to ride on something so dangerous. A few thousand $ of investment in this place would go a long way. Shame the owners haven’t recognized that.

We stayed for 3 nights in Condesa del mar. The villa is spacious and has good wifi, nice soundssystem for by the pool and an amzing view. The house has a good kitchen, bathrooms are nice and the AC is working like it should. Again; the view is amazing, we saw dolfins and whales from our deck. One stairs to the almost deserted beach and snorkeling right in front of the house. We saw all kinds of rays (eagle and stingray), million fish, baracuda's, dolfins and a shark!! The best thing about it all is the host Tom. He really made an effort to make your stay as pleasant as possible. He gave us good advice about where to eat, where to go, what to do etc. If we needed something he did everything to make it happen. Really a guy who understands the meaning of being a good host. This guy deserves a big thumbs up!! Thank you Tom for making our final days in Panama really comfortable en nice!! Tip for the owners; start renovating fast before the villa doesnt has the luxury feel it can and should have.

L’accueil de la part de Tom est parfait. Très belle vue. Accès direct à la plage. Maison très bien équipée. C'est une excellente option à Contadora. Il vaut mieux pouvoir louer toute la villa (trois chambres dont deux qui partagent une salle de bain) si l'on n'a pas envie de partager les installations avec d'autres familles. Les protections en plastique du lit n’étaient pas très confortables

We rented this beautiful house with a private entrance to Playa Cacique for 4 days/3 nights from Aug.11th to 14th. We were 7 people (4 adults and 3 children ages from 7 to 12). We had a great time. The house is in a great location and fully operational. The pool is great! The kids and us loved it! The accommodations were fantastic. Spacey rooms, great living room area and a fully operational kitchen. The commodities work really well: AC, WiFi, TV, Sound system make this place even more attractive. In the property, also included in the price was a golf cart that allowed us to explore this beautiful island. When we were there the island was suffering a water shortage so brutal that some restaurants and hotels in the island had to close down or reduce their activities. This house however, was not affected at all. It has its own water supply and everything went smooth and without a problem. As a bonus Tom, the property manager, who leaves on a separate house on the property, was there to assist us in with any concerns and questions that we had. Not only that, but he also was a great source of info on every aspect pertaining the island and everything else we needed during our stay. We will definitely go back to the same house very soon in the near future. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience Isla Contadora with comfort, access to the beach and and a spectacular view of Playa Cacique. 5 stars out of 5stars for sure! Thanks Tom for a great relaxing vacation!

Villa Condessa is in a spectacular setting and neighborhood overlooking Playa Cacique on Contadora island. It is an older home that is showing it's age, but still clean and comfortable, with lots of amenities such as beach access and private beach hut, a pool, BBQ, full kitchen, TV, stereo system, and WIFI. It's a perfect get-away to do nothing; to be active with swimming, hiking, kayaking; or to party with family and friends. We only stayed one night but wish we could have spent several nights.
