The king room with loft was awesome. Once the new restaurant and pool are done, almost there, it will be even better. The place overlooks one of the best waves in Panama. The view from the new restaurant and pool will be right there. We'll return. Whether you surf or not, a great place to stay.

The most amazing trip ever! The rooms were spotless! The detail of the decor and construction is amazing and so charming (ie hammocks, outdoor tables & benches for each room, sea shells made into shower walls, the list goes on). Beach access and view is the best in all of Santa Catalina and even an outdoor shower overlooking the surf... More

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.
