Thank you for your stay. You booked a small 1 bedroom apartment.
We have 6 other rooms you did not see. We also have a larger apt with an ocean view and large balcony.
We will inspect the kitchen on your suggestion, beside the sea and in the tropics equipment tends to need a lot of TLC. thank you.
Taboga Island is a small island near Panama City which prides itself in its traditions and traditional way of life. Many residents live from fishing. It is not a fancy island however they will be investing 1 million dollars in the near future in infrastructure much related to tourism. Cerrito Tropical is at the edge of a village of under 1000 people, and beside the rainforest with an ocean view. The fact we are away from the noise of the village is one of the benefits of staying on our hillside lodge.
There are no banks on the island or cash machines, and only 3 people accept credit cards. We keep an account for our guests and they pay the balance on the way out at our restaurant. That is usually a convenience for our guests; they do not have to pay at once.
The fresh corvina filet, with chef's sauce and salad and plantains is $14 per person - it was cooked fresh to order by your onsite chef at Cerrito; there was a misunderstanding. Sorry about that but your fiancée told me personally that everything was great except for one thing - the beach where you spent you time was not up to standard.
You came during the week when we are slower as it is quiet season, and many people seek out the peaceful atmosphere we can offer. There are actually 3 small markets nearby where you can buy basic foods.
We do not close our restaurant at 3:30 pm, we close most weekdays at 5 unless we have a reservation and during weekends until 8:30 pm.
We did not have to refund the second night and we did. We are the most economical lodge on Taboga Island, we are inspected regularly and pass every time, I would like to mention that your fiancée never mentioned he was unhappy with us, or our service when he paid.
We appreciate your visit and hope you enjoyed Panama.
