Cute casita with friendly staff. Great breakfast. Many locals come for breakfast. It is a great place to meet people and get information about Pedasi. The owners are very friendly with a great wealth of knowledge. We saw the owner speak at a conference one year ago; came out to explore the area after the conference. We stayed at the... More

We went to Pedasi in March (3 kids, my husband and myself). We booked Casita Margarita because the review it had in Trip Advisor was really good. The truth is that we didn't get what we were expecting: first of all the girl in front desk lost our reservation (although one night was already charged in my credit card), and... More

My husband and I booked two nights here and two nights in another Pedasi bed & breakfast so we could experience a couple of options.Casita Margarita looked great in its exterior photos and had such good reviews that we were rather shocked by the tiny and worn-out looking room we were given. It may have been acceptable for a $30/night... More

Enjoyed our time here. The owner Ted was awesome....very friendly.....the town ran out of water so he paid for a water truck to deliver water to the B&B. Very good breakfast. The AC in our initial room wasn't working very well so they happily put us in a bigger room.

This bed and breakfast was very clean. The room was large. The included breakfast was good but pretty basic. However there were several choices, which was nice. The service was good. Nothing spectacular but very adequate and we were only there over one night so did not get to meet the owners who are supposedly very friendly and accommodating. It... More

Pedasi is quaint, but nothing special. We were suppose to spend two nights here but only spent once, thanks to American Airlines. The room was small, but had Air Conditioning. The toilet in the bathroom ran constantly and didn't flush. Instead of fixing it, there was a laminated note from management on how to fix the flapper in the toilet.... More

We spent 3 weeks at Casita Margarita using it as our home base, while exploring the surrounding area and Panama. Ted- the owner, was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the area, and was free with sharing those secret hidden beaches. He introduced us to many expats and they in turn, shared more "insider" information. The rooms are large, comfortable beds,... More

During our stay in Panama over the Christmas and New Year holidays, we were fortunate enough to land at the Casita Margarita in Pedasi. The first person we met after arriving was the owner Ted Fuller. After the introductions, he gave us his two rules. The first of those, Mi Casa Es Su Casa, and boy does he mean it.... More

We enjoyed our two week stay at Casita Margarita in Pedasi, Panama. The goal of the owners, Ted and Lisa, is "Mi casa es tu casa." They met their goal with us. The owners have generous personalities and made us feel at home and welcome. Additionally, they have employed a staff- Nilena, Graciela, Mary, Lesbia and Mely- that is friendly,... More

The owner, Ted was so accommodating! He showed us how to get to the SECLUDED beaches (15 minutes away). Trust me... No one was on the beach except the two of us! The place is very laid back and easy going! You felt right at home when you arrive. The staff is EXCELLENT! The owner is WONDERFUL! The breakfast is... More
