“Great Hotel Wonderful Town”
Reviewed September 10, 2009

Just returned from four nights @ Casita Margarita. This is a woderfuk B&B style hotel with accomadations in approx. 6 rooms. Not only is the property clean & well kept the town of Pedasi is spotless....no trash a rarity in latin america. The local towns people were all very friendly and ready to help with anything you asked. This was true of the people running the hotel as well. Casey & Cailey were always at your serivce and let us use their kitchen to produce some wonderful meals with the fish we brought back daily.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

My husband and I were delighted to have sushi at the quaint Casita Margarita. Friday night sushi with the freshest fish caught that day. Oh and a great Martini. We love Pedasi.

My wife and I had spent 3 days driving in Panama when we arrived in Pedasi. It was easy to find this lovely place. The hosts were so friendly and helpful that we felt like a part of their family within minutes. Our room was the best we stayed in in pamana. Quiet town, great beaches and superb place to stay. What more could you ask for. We have to return when Andre is preparing lobster, lots of raves about that.

Casita Margarita looked really cute as we cruised in Pedasi... after being stopped by the federali's on the drive from Panama City (for no reason besides the fact that we are both blonde)... and having to pay the police $80 to not spend a night in jail... we were a little stressed! So we were quite relieved to show up at our new home for the next couple of nights.

PROS:
-Very friendly couple that owns the place
-we had fresh watermelon that we filled with rum, they let us keep our concoction in the chef's fridge overnight so that we could take it to the beach with us in the morning
-amazing breakfast, the servers were very accommodating and the food was some of the best we had our entire trip
-hammocks hanging outside were a nice touch
-honor bar that had wine, beer and champagne... enough said!

CONS:
-as we checked in we were told that if we filled out a trip advisor report while we were there, we could get a free drink.... so I think that some of the reports on this site may not be entirely accurate
-the room was very hot at night (again my bf had trouble sleeping but I was ok)
-place is very clean, but I would not describe it as luxurious by any means

CONCLUSION:
We were told that this is the best place to stay in the small town of Pedasi. It was a pleasant stay but nothing to write home about.

I went with my girlfriend wanting to get away from the hectic lifestyle of the city and we got exactly what we were looking for; the quiet beach town of Pedasi is perfect for when you want to get rid of your clocks and let time just wither away. Casita Margarita makes it even easier to disconnect, with its cozy, homey rooms, excellent room service and great dining!

To tell you the truth, if it wasn't for our commitments back in Panama City we would've stayed for longer, no doubt about it. If you're looking for a place to get away from it all and be in good company, Casita Margarita is THE place to go. The Azuero Peninsula has a crown jewel called Pedasí; you owe it to yourself to visit!

I wish I could write a personal reply to all the kind reviews on this board. It's not easy to please every guest, but we do our best to accommodate the wide spectrum of unique and interesting visitors we've had the pleasure to know at our B&B.

We are constantly making improvements and hope to have a few new touches, including our ever-expanding bar & restaurant hours, ready in time for peak season. Sincere thanks to all of you who helped make our first year in business such a success!

Sincerely,

The Mgmt

I have visited Pedasi a few times and I have always enjoyed the tranquility of this little seaside village in Panama. Casita Margarita fits perfectly into this charming little town. The hotel, located on the town's main thoroughfare, is a former home that has been remodeled into a quaint little bed and breakfast. The place was clean and the staff very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is prepared to order every morning, which always includes fresh fruit and hot coffee. The rooms are not oversized, but very comfortable and quiet, each having cable television and hot water. It should be noted that the hot water was not consistent; however, the owner indicated he was planning on making improvements to the system.

One recommendation I have would be to allow guests internet access to check emails, etc, but overall, Casita Margarita was a great place to stay and I highly recommend it.
