With the new ocean front restaurant / bar / pool over looking the main surf break this hotel has gone to another level. Along with very comfortable rooms and great service the hotel does offer great value for those looking for more than a hostel or B&B.

Beautiful ocean front location and view of the waves. Beaches and grounds well maintained with friendly staff. There is a new Infinity pool and restaurant and we were fortunate to be there during the grand opening - with a great fireworks display!

We were visiting from Cincinnati, Oh. Although I am from Panamanian, I had never been in Santa Catalina before. Took my family and we were a total of 8 individuals. Rooms are beautiful, very subtle but cozy, roomy, bathrooms were cleaned and spacious. One of our favorite things were the hamacas outside. Excellent to relax. The hotel is located close... More

Hotel Santa Catalina was the perfect chill beach stay. There are hammocks in front of each room and A/C with a ceiling fan. Very comfortable! The rooms are crammed with furniture, but comfortable beds and there are hostel style lockers in the room (we had four lockers, but a key for only one). The shower has low pressure, but does...

I would characterize this a "boutique" property, clean, well maintained and updated. The crown jewel of the property is the open air eating and bar area that looks out to the primary surfing breaks and their new pool. The bar and restaurant is clean, well maintained and the food is good. However when compared to other Santa Catalina eateries it... More

This hotel is very reasonably priced for it's amenities. We stayed here 3 nights. All the staff was super friendly. The restaurant was delicious. Nice small infinity pool overlook the ocean. Best shower we had in all of Panama. Water pressure and warm water!! Bed was comfortable and tons of storage. We had a fishing day and a dive day... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Santa Catalina! This was my first visit to the area and it was a welcomed getaway from Panama City. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and have extra features that are nice when traveling light (like a hairdryer!). There is a/c in each room which keeps it nice and cool, and a hammock... More
