Here at Santarena, we appreciate luxury, but prefer places that feel traveled. In a formal sense, Santarena is an homage to the old mansions of the great coastal cities of Havana and Cartagena, a traditional gem where sun-kissed days revolve around blossoming courtyards and lounging on timeless terraces with marveling picturesque archways surrounded by lush greenery and constant views of the sky. Views from our rooftop are incomparable, especially when it is paired with our 35-square-meter pool. Stylish accommodations and inviting public spaces are seamlessly woven with gracious hospitality to make this the ideal home base, captivating guests with an authentic laid-back warmth throughout.

Make sure you rent a 4 x 4 to get here. Loved this little town, our hotel, the beach. Lovely cafe on the beach. Not crowded. Really fun surf for swimming. It kind of reminded me of small Italian neighborhoods I walked through. Cobble streets and Stucco buildings.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Smiles all the time. The hotel is so beautiful and well designed. I took pictures of the property to share with my friends. I've been in over 100 hotels and this one is rememberable for the design. Room was spacious and well laid out. This is going to be a great place but not there yet. This is a construction zone. I was woken up on Sunday morning at 8 am by the sound or rebar being cut 30 yards from my room. Downtown Chicago is quieter on a Sunday morning. This goes on throughout the day including weekends. The lack of cars in the town is great, but not when you are a visitor. The walk to the valet to get your car is five minutes from the front door. It's not at the hotel front door,but outside at another building. It's so inconvenient especially if you are going in and out of the property. The valet staff is great but your car is literally outside the front door of the hotel in a lot and you have to walk across town to the valet. Flies are a bit of a problem by the outside dining and beach area. There are open garbage cans with no lids all over the place. I hope that's a quick fix. I would come back to this hotel in a few years. I think it will have it's issues sorted out and will be a beautiful place to stay. Just give it some time.

Las Catalinas feels like a non-resort resort town and Santarena Hotel is a lovely place to stay whilst there. The town and hotel mention a lot of wellness offerings but found that these aren't as available. The local spa in town was closed and the hotel doesn't offer any yoga or wellness otherwise even though it's marketed. Highly recommend yoga with Zoe (@zoevidaom on Instagram) and massage with a local Socorro (contact details can be provided by Zoe).

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Santarena Hotel at Las Catalinas. When we checked in (Dec 6, 2020) we were the first/only guests in the past 8 months. We basically had the hotel to ourselves for the first night until a few other guests started trickling in. The service was excellent! The GM, Diego, was very attentive and helpful making sure we had everything we needed. Andrea at the front desk set us up with daily adventures and was very helpful with advice on what to do! (Congo Trail zipline and ATV tour, hikes, kayaks, snorkeling, ect.) The food at the hotel was outstanding! The complimentary breakfast was the best "free" breakfast I have eaten. The fruit bowl was so good every day! When we weren't on an adventure we spent our time at the rooftop infinity pool drinking buckets of beer and champagne watching the the sunset.. Our room was clean, comfortable and modern. I will be returning to Santerena on our next visit to Costa Rica! Pura Vida!

My husband and I were the first guests to check in when Santarena reopened. The level of service has been amazing. Diego, the GM, made us feel right at home, and Andrea helped us with booking excursions. The rooftop pool is intimate and beautiful. There are nearby hikes for all skill levels. Zip lining, ATV and horseback tours are within close driving distance. The beach is just a few steps away. Our room was comfortable and beautifully modern. Highly recommend this hotel for a getaway!
