Spacy and clean rooms with aircon, fridge, hot water. The tenant is very sympatic and helpful.
We particurlaly appreciate to have aircon as the average temperature is °C 32 without lots of air. Wich is, as of today NOT the case for most of Santa Catalina hotel.
We also appreciate to be able to take a real shower before dinner knowing that you are mainly going there to enjoy sea oriented activites, but as you got black sand, it is very sticky.
Last but not least, the fridge is very appreciable to put freash drinks, we also used it to store our lunch stuff for coming excursions (I.E. if you go to Coiba you can either buy a lunch pack in the village for an average $8, either by what to make your sandwich at the grocery store for an average $2 and store it in the fridge)
Finally, as regard to its location as well as 24/24 guard, it is a very safe place.
The only things to improve were:
- the absence of room service but I think the tenant is currently looking for the appropriate staff.
- the difficulty to have breakfeast there. However, a dedicated house is currently under construcation to offer food services and it should be solved by mid year
If you go there, ask the tenant to show you the view from his terrace, it is incredible.
