It's the first hotel you see in Santa Fe and worth the cost - cheap. Note, this is a cash-only establishment, bring it; I don't think there is an ATM in Town. The rooms are tacky, but clean. There is a fan that we didn't use because the breezes were cool and nice. There is no hot water. The shower will wake you up if the loud trucks coming up the hill early in the AM don't do it first. The staff speaks no English but they are very nice and were patient with our pidgin Spanish. We had all our meals there, on the roofed patio that has a nice view of the surrounding mountains. The food was uninspired and inexpensive. The beers were the cheapest I've had in Panama. Breakfast was good. Service was slow, but that is to be expected.
Santa Fe is beautiful and hard to get to with only one long, steep, winding, pot-holed, road there and back to the PanAm Highway. I wish I could have stayed longer.
