My husband and I visited for our honeymoon and were not disappointed! We stayed for 1 week, and wish we'd had more time. Given the rural and remote feeling of the village of Santa Catalina, the rooms are surprisingly spacious, clean, and accommodating. We loved the hammocks, table and chairs out front (perfect for outdoor breakfast dining). We were there... More

Hotel Santa Catalina is a great place to stay. It's right in front of the surf break, perfect location. The rooms were really nice, very clean, the breakfast was exceptional. We stayed at many places through Central America and this was my favourite by far. The Staff are really friendly also.

It is the best place to stay if you want to be close to surf Santa Catalina la punta. The units are comfortable and chilled out, with hammocks outside every room. They are currently rebuilding a restaurant with a view so it will be awesome once that's done. I'm giving this an average rating because I really wanted to surf... More

My family and I stayed for three nights. The manager was very helpful from the initial contact by phone/email. It is located in the "middle" of all desired locations. We enjoyed being away from the main town where it can be more busy and noisy, and we were just a five minute walk from Estero beach where all the beginners'... More

A very short walk to the ocean and within walking distance of a couple of restaurants. Perhaps the best feature is the memory foam beds which made for awesome sleeping. Very friendly and helpful folks. A little bit hard to find but that is mainly because Panama does not seem to believe in road signs :)

The beds are super comfortable. The restaurant was awesome but it has since burnt down. Hopefully they re-build. There are many other great restaurants with-in walking distance. The beach is also a short walk away. My only complaint is that the water pressure is low in the shower. Great place. We've stayed here twice.

Beach front, nice and individual accommodations. The rates includes surfboards and kayak. There you will find cable tv, wifi and frigobar in the room. A perfect place to surfers, family or couples that want to visit or dive in coiba! A definetely a great value for money.

The room was really nice and confortable. Minifridge, hot water, quiet air conditionning, confortable clean bed, etc. You can borrow bikes or boards for free. Service though was a bit lacking. Reception is under construction, so when you arrive it is hard to know that room 5 is now the reception. Wifi internet was a bit slow and inconsistent. Although... More
