When we arrived at the hotel there was nobody around. The office was open but there was nobody in it. We walked around until we found someone who we thought might work there and he finally got someone to check us in. The room itself was okay. I found it a little strange that there was no place to hang... More

We found Hotel Santa Catalina to be a well kept and clean property, In April the construction of the Hotels Restaurant was still on going, The town had sufficient restaurants to be explored and the prices were very good.

We stayed at Hotel Santa Catalina for 3 nights. The room was really nice and spacious. The bed was large and slept well. The A/C was working good! The shower had warm water and was great. The hammocks in front of your doorstep are a cool place to chill out. The staff was very helpful, especially Sergio answered a lot... More

The surfing and deep sea fishing are great in this area of Panama. The Santa Catalina Hotel was very nice and clean and had plenty of hot water; they are in the process of building a restaurant overlooking the ocean and this will be a great improvement.

Hotel Santa Catalina Panama is a lovely place, with lovely homes, with lovely people , located just in front of Santa Catalina main wave, and 10 minutes walk to go to Estero beach. There is no restaurant at the moment but it is being build and it's gonna be amazing with a big charming bar and a pool.

Wonderful staff providing topnotch service (not often seen in Panama). Beautiful room with lots of teak furniture and nice decor. Everything was brand new, clean and comfortable. Shower had plenty of water - hot and cold, ac worked well, kitchenette with coffee maker and fridge. Close to everything in Santa Catalina.

We stayed one night here for 70.00. Under construction . No restaurant . Big room but the lighting was very poor. No pool. Nice staff. Not as clean as it could be. Be careful locking your door. If you lock the door knob there is no key. Just for the deadbolt. Not real impressed with the whole area.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in March, and we wish we could have stayed at least one more night! The only reason I knocked off one star was that, upon check in, we weren't shown where to borrow the recreational equipment or given the wifi password (had to ask for it). Also, the room was extremely... More
