Very beautiful room design and style. The more agradable place to surf, surfboard and stand up rental, kayak free. La Punta Santa Catalina, one of the best spot of the place just at some feet of your room, take your coffee and go surfing ! We like to be near the town too, walking as well as driving, you can...

Beautifull hotel located right in front of La punta santa catalina. I loved the colonial style arquitecture. The rooms are increidebly comfrotable and shinny clean. The staff and the owner are super nice people that will help you out with whatever you need. If the hotel wasnt good enough there building a infinity pool looking towards the wave (should be...

We had a great stay at the Santa Catalina Hotel. The suite was very comfortable as well as functional. The kitchenette area was not only well equipped but everything was in immaculate condition. Our room beds were memory foam and extremely comfortable. The reception and hotel staff were very accommodating and friendly. The hotel is expanding its facilities with a... More

We had a great time at Hotel Santa Catalina. It was a very quiet property, and was right on the ocean. The AC worked great, plenty of hot water, and the room felt much more private than I expected, which was nice. Although it would be a long walk to town, I enjoyed being a little further out. (Disclaimer: we... More

Stayed 2 weeks in June, 2015. Nice rooms, wonderful staff, clean. A few minutes outside of town (easy walk) so away from more hectic stuff. Kitchen/community area being rebuilt, should be done by Jan 2016, will be wonderful as perched overlooking ocean. Our boys could paddle directly out from hotel beach access to main point break, had consistently good waves.... More

I came to Santa Catalina as part of a yoga & surf retreat and it was amazing... the rooms are well appointed with a very cool hand-decorated stone bathroom, and AC and free wifi as well. We went during the start of the rainy season so once or twice the electricity went out (all over town) but it was actually... More

Great place to stay! Great location with access to the beach, perfect for surfers! Rooms are very comfortable, with air con & hot water! Beds and pillows are very comfortable! Stayed in a family room - with complete kitchen. Staff very attentive, especially Hotel Manager Shenida - what a lovely lady!

The rooms were very nice, with air conditioning and everything. It was easy to get to the beach for surfing, and there was a lot of diving/snorkelling places in the "city". The available bikes and surfboards weren't very good. The breakfast-service was laughable. One day we got 4 of 8 orders right, so only one of us got what was... More
