Coibahouse is everything I look for in a place to stay while on travel. The beds are the most comfortable of any I've slept in during my 4 month tour of Central America. The sleeping rooms are spacious and intelligently designed and built into the hillside so that they remain comfortably cooler than the ambient temperature; the air conditioning is quick to chill the room if needed, which was only in the evening before bed time for me. The shower is large enough to accomodate my frame (6'3" x 235 pounds) with room to spare, and there was plenty of hot water when I needed it. Darcy, the operator, and his family are super friendly and run a tight ship. Darcy is a wellspring of information about things to see and do around Santa Catalina and Panama in general. The breakfast is fresh, delicious, and healthy. There is a selection of books to enjoy in the hammock on the veranda, which overlooks the beach below. Should the setting invoke a philosophical spirit, Darcy is an excellent conversationalist in English and Spanish. Highly recommended.
