Amazing boutique hotel !! Excellent service and accommodations. Will be back. Is there a shuttle from airport … long ride but worth it.

Menu was good. Not enough variation for extended stays. Fresh seafood options would be nice

Absolutely perfect!
We had a fantastic stay and Catalina’s Hideaway. The owners, Anthea and Ryan, along with the staff are incredibly hospitable and made us feel welcomed from the moment we arrived. Every detail of Catalina’s Hideaway is perfect- from the artistic and funky decorated murals, room décore, and beautifully landscaped grounds. I had the best-ever massage by fellow Canadian, Basia who also taught our yoga classes in an open air studio overlooking the ocean. Everything about our stay was perfect!

Truly a hideaway! Beautiful finishes, amazing room, incredible bed, and the outdoor shower was simply the best! 30 minutes away from Santa Catalina - here more options of restaurants - close enough to go spend the day at and come back. We did the Coiba Snorkel tour, which I highly recommend, through the hotel. It was the best snorkeling I have done - saw more than 20 species of fish, turtles, and sand sharks! The staff is very nice, super friendly, and the on site restaurant serves delicious meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner! I would recommend and look forward to going back. Lastly, the stars at night, simply magical!

Catalina’s Hideaway was such a memorable, relaxing, and beautiful getaway!! Very much worth the trip, with staff that far exceeded the hospitality of any stay we’ve had in Panama. From the proactive communication prior to arrival, exceptionally attentive concierge through our stay, and the delightful oasis of the property, it was a highlight of our trip. The excursion to Coiba Island is a must-do, and I am grateful to the staff for encouraging it- best snorkeling of any trip we’ve ever had. Many thanks for a lovely stay!

Stunning Bali-style Hideaway resort.
Catalina's Hideaway is a relatively new very beautiful hotel reasonably convenient(25 mins by bad road) to our trip out to Coiba Island which was why we were there and which they organized. The place is Bali-style and gorgeous. Very comfortable bungalow close to beach with view through trees. Beach is long and tidal- not a swimming beach but good walks. Pretty pool area. We had one good and one not so good dinner but great breakfasts and lunches and good service early. Management are wonderful and helpful. Kitchen and bar/restaurant staff at night a little spottier but all around lovely friendly vibe.

Outstanding hideaway!!
the hotel is exceptional, the service excellent, personnel outstanding. Lagartero beach might not be the best, but Catalina's Hideaway is definetely the best spot in the area. If you're planning to visit Coiba Island, one of the nicest places of Panama, this hideaway is your best choice.
