5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

I love this place! The owners Jack and Sue could be my best friends if they lived next door. The people who work at CM are amazing too! The co-managers Lupe and Jose are like family. The ladies who make breakfast and keep the place shining are lovely and they make a great breakfast! The place is efficiently run, clean, comfortable and right smack in the middle of this great little town. I will be back again soon with wife and daughter.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

The owners and staff are really nice and accommodating. We needed a room for a second night and they found space for us in a casita-like building in the back next to the laundry and housing the spare water tanks in the room behind a curtain. The room was quiet and comfortable, but $70 seemed a little high.
Our reserved room the 1st night on the 2nd floor was quiet and comfortable. The lounge/common area on the 2nd floor was relaxing and not noisy. Bath was big. Everything seemed spotless. Honor bar and welcome drink was nice.
I didn't run into any Spanish speaking guest..maybe I missed them. The place seems to cater to the expat community and traveling Americans and Canadians.
The place is very nice, but if you want to struggle with your Spanish and catch more of the "real" Panama, I'm sure that there alternatives. If you need the comfort of not needing to worry about the language and relax with some nice people...highly recommended.

Pedasi is an incredibly beautiful spot close to a perfect surf location Playa Venao. We loved the vibe and the people. Could even imagine living there ;) Casita Margarita is a lovely place in a great location. Chilling in the hammock with a lovely PANAMA beer and a good book after a great surf made my days. See you soon ;)

Great place to unwind after spending time at other "Panamanian" style hotels. Clean, quiet, actual hot water in bathroom, great working AC, really comfortable beds and filling breakfast included. I was able to have more than one cup of delicious coffee which was so wonderful and usually would have to pay extra for at other places I've been in Panama. Owners or the manager is there to make your stay fruitful and help with booking excursions around the area.

This hotel was very clean with well furnished rooms & neat bathrooms (excellent hot water). Bedlinen & towels spotless. Owners were very helpful - made sure you had the best stay possible. Breakfast tasty & freshly cooked/prepared. Nice location on the edge of town, easy walk to restaurants, bakery, ATM etc. Upstairs lounge & balcony, downstairs dining area outside on terrace with lots of plants.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms probably nicest, get a good breeze when it is windy (& you don't need the A/C...

We stayed for two nights in this hotel and found it to be very pleasant. Nice breakfast and small but comfortable room. We stayed in room No. 3 which is upstairs in the back. The bed seemed small, I am not sure if it was a double or queen. But we slept just fine in it. The owners are hands on and really care about their B&B and it shows. The were also very nice when I had to change my reservation due to illness in Boca Del Toros. The only item to note is that they close the office at 8 pm. If you do not arrive by that time, you may not be able to gain access to your room. So make sure to let them know your arrival time and if you are going to be late, call them to make arrangements for entry.

Room Tip: We had room 3 in the back upstairs with a double bed. Request a different room if you want a larger...

The staff are great! Jose especially will do anything to make sure your whole pedasi experience is amazing. Whether you need help with activities or dining just ask! Jose has suggestions and will even book it for you! We stayed 3 nights and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. There's so much to do in this area and margarita is the perfect home base!

Room Tip: Try and get any room but the one right by the kitchen. It's loud when the fisherman get up for t...
