Hotel Santa Catalina was my first choice of places to stay in Santa Catalina. However, due to a problem with AirBnB, I was not able to book the 2 nights we needed. The rooms were actually available, but by the time I became aware of this I had already booked with Cabanas Sherlley next door. So it may have been... More

We spent 2 nights in the quaint little village of Santa Catalina last month. We found the hotel to be clean, modern and located up the hill, making for a nice quiet visit. They helped us set up a fishing trip with Capt Richard and changed out our suicide shower upon arrival (we had been without hot water in the... More

Our original hostel had messed up our reservations & had no space available that night. The gal recommended the hotel next door. We walked over & caught one of the managers working outside. He spoke only Spanish but was very helpful & patient as we worked through our intermediate Spanish. He charged us $75US for 3 people & gave us... More

I got very positively surprised with the quality of the accommodations, the cozy porches, the view from the beach, the tasty breakfast! The owner is a very nice guy and the way he manages the hotel makes you feel like home! He doesn't charge you for using the kayaks and offers bikes to guests hang around the village! It's the...

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 :)
