We staid in the Santa Catalina Inn for 2 nights in the beginning of May 2014. The rooms are Ok, the shower and the toilest are clean. For us it was disapointing that the Restaurant closed down. Nice grils operating the Hotel. Apart from the diving Location i would not recommend the visit of Santa Catalina.

Thoroughly disappointing interaction. I hope this is a one off for them as our experience doesn't match that of the other reviewers. We had booked to stay here on the 12th July and was surprised to receive an email the morning of, that the Inn was closed for renovations. As we had payed a deposit we were destined to stay... More

Did the 2 night stay with Coiba snorkel trip. Room was just average. Older hotel so no modern amenities and there were some bugs but room was spacious and had nice patio. Bed wasn't very comfortable. Best part of our trip ended up being the snorkel trip. This was an all day trip to several islands by boat and we... More

I stayed in Santa Catalina for 2 nights and my room was wonderful. The rooms are large with a big bathroom and shower. The inn is within walking distance to a cornerstore as well as a few restaurants, although you will need to bike or drive to a nearby beach. The owners, adrienn and Christine are super nice, and they... More

Adrian, the owner, was a dive intructor and recommended the discover scuba dive for us noobie divers. It was spectacular! The rooms at the inn were beautiful and there is tons of room to unpack and relax. We were on... More

Even though there was a power black out, which meant no electricity and no water, it was charming and cute. The supermarket and restaurants had little candles lit, which made the small town of Santa Catalina even more cute. The water and electricity went on again after an hour, so that wasn´t really inconvenient, and no electricity gave us the... More

The Santa Catalina Inn is a great little place to stay if you are traveling to Santa Catalina. Please keep in mind that the rooms are very basic, but the beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean.
