I came here with my boyfriend and his parents. Arriving at the hotel, we were all amazed by the view, the decorations and the generally cool vibe of the place. I felt like I was in a surfer's paradise.... That was until we got the keys to the rooms. So, in both the rooms the curtains were disgusting..full of stains...

The location of the hotel is amazing, the beach is incredible and you feed like surfing as soon as you see the beach, even if you are a first timer as me. The trip to Coiba National Park is just unbelievable: snorkel with fishes, sharks, seaturtles in a white sand beach, crystal clear water. The staff of the hotel are...

The atmosphere of this little hotel is just perfect; it makes you feel at home. It´s located on the beach, so you can just rent a board and go straight out surfing. Super friendly staff and great food.

Hotel has excellent variety of little corners with hammocks or sun chairs so everyone can found their spot. It's in front of the ocean and the excellent restaurant has impressive view. Everything worked very well. Staff even gave us a free ride to the dive shop when we had to leave early with our cases. Superb budget place. Only minus...

We stayed in another hotel but had lunch here every day! Really nice place, the pancakes and tacos are super good! Owner was very friendly and the view on the beach and sea is great! At night it is one of the few bars with a bit of ambiance in Catalina!

Gorgeous place. The restaurant has beautiful view of the beach and the food is one of the bests I had in panama. Our room was nice, directly in the garden. The stuff is very nice. I would also recommend the surfing guides, which are extremely experienced and cool. If I will go back to Santa Catalina again, I would definitely...

Santa Catalina is a small village at the beach with perfect beaches. It is a peaceful place with not so many tourists. We spent first a night on an other place, but were not satisfied. Then we came to mama inès. Do not come here if you want to cook you own meals. For all the other people: do come...

I spent a week on the property and if you are looking for a place to stay that is cheap, comfortable, and right on the beach this is the place. The steps from the hotel lead right to the beach where surfing is only about 200 yards away. The family could not be nicer and would help out in any...
