In December 28th, I had a small accident with my boyfriend's surfboard and since the Restaurant/Hotel is right on the beach I went there for help. Julia, came to help right away and asked Carla and her really nice friend to drive me to a health post over the next village to see a man named Marco, who Julia said... More

Don't go to this hotel!! I went with my husband and we had a horrible time. The prices change according of how you look and they say something and then when you turn around is something else. When we seated to have some food they got all the order wrong and we told them and they said that we were... More

The location is great and the room with ac, TV, WiFi and bathroom looks good on first sight. But the room was not clean. Must have been a while since the bathroom was cleaned properly. The water pressure was rather low or non- existent. All in all not a problem for us - but for the proud price of 50$... More

We stayed at Mama Ines for three nights. We got a pretty good offer, as we were there in low season (and there was only one other room occupied). The room was nice and spacious, however, not very clean. Unfortunately, the matresses were very uncomfortable (mine even had a hole as big as a fist) and the room was smelly... More

We were there just for a dinner - and it was the right decision. Wide range of choice, splendid view (really wow) and very soothing atmosphere.

Good little dorm, clean, AC and private shower/toilet. Location is a big plus, with beautiful view and nice surf spot. Althought a bit far from town (20 min walk). Eating at the restaurant makes place more costly, but food was overall good - except the tacos. Internet is not very good, but whole of Santa Cathaline deals with this problem.... More

We were staying at Mama Ines for 5 nights and we very much enjoyed our time there. Mama Ines is directly located at the most beautiful beach in Santa Catalina. The family which runs the plays is really lovely and helpful and the rooms are very comfortable.

A bit slobby. Slow service. Owner waits for staff to run his place. Overcharged breakfast, decent quality. Splendid view on the beach. Charging 3 US for crappy wifi is theft!

We ate dinner there once. Each meal came out 20 minutes apart over an hour and a half and only the 2nd one was warm. Fish tacos were gross, a plate of fries-way too small for price. We really didn't want to return there but we were waiting for our room at AguaVerde and decided to try again. We ordered... More
