“Reallyterrific, fun- filled family vacation week in Panama”
Reviewed January 13, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We had a wonderful week in Panama and at the Condo with our 4 kids ages 13-21. The place was meticulously clean, comfortable and welcoming. Everything I could think of was there - boogie boards, blow dryer, scotch tape, baggies, and wraps, all cooking supplies, and much much more. Tons of towels, pillows, etc. Views were gorgeous from all sides. We walked out the back door of the building each afternoon to the pool and then down some steps to the beautiful beach where we watched the sunset each night. New Year's Eve - and beyond- fireworks were amazing. Security on both sides of the building was 24 hrs - I never ever felt unsafe. We spent most of each day touring within an hour of the condo - and had fun filled days, ziplining, boating to monkey island, snorkling, hiking in rainforests, near waterfalls, seeing the Canal museum, exploring downtown Panama City and more.
Great vacation and family time!

The condo has plenty of space, 3 bedrooms, two full baths. Has cable TV and WiFi. It also has free telephone usage to call back to the states, but we did not use it. Right on the beach.

“LOVELY!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My wife had just returned from an extended tour in Afghanistan, so we took a week off to visit Panama to "decompress". Apart from zip-lining over the jungle in nearby El Valle (d'Anton), being at this condo was the best part of a great, relaxing, comfortable vacation. The condo had ALL amenities (don't pack too much, there is a high efficiency washer and drier for your clothing), the beds were comfortable, the climate control (AC) individually controlled in every room with a remote, high speed wifi internet, lots of room, Well appointed kitchen (ice cube maker in freezer), microwave, coffee maker, gas range, dishwasher, dishes/pots/pans/cutlery. Marvelous balcony view of the Pacific, the beach and a bay (see panorama). Nice comfortable breeze there and a BBQ. Cable television (although we never used that). Tom and Karen were always quick to respond to any question (e-mail). Oh, and they have a VOIP telephone so you can call anywhere in North America free of charge. There is also a Panamanian cell phone for your use (incl SMS text), you just have to recharge the card (mall in nearby Coronado has three machines that do so). Tom gives you a very detailed briefing e-mail on anything you can possibly need information on, including how to get from the airport to the condo. Condo common facilities include pool and a fairly nice gym. The beach is very nice (black sand) and the tide "rakes" it smooth daily. We liked the condo so much, we actually did not go out one day, just enjoying the quiet rhythm of the surf below, a gentle breeze on the balcony, and the peace & quiet. Although this condo is about an hour outside of Panama City, there is a lot to do in the area, but why rush about? Take your time. In fact, I know the Tom & Karen have repeat customers, so if you want this condo and the dates are open, book it. You will not regret it. I only regret that we did not invite two other couples to enjoy the place with us. Oh, and there are two full bathrooms, great views from all windows (which are large and have an IR protective film to keep the heat out). Staff at the condo are genuinely friendly and helpful. We were so impressed with this condo that we are considering buying one there, ourselves.

(Oh, one thing, though. The briefing notes you get will refer to a Chinese convenience store. The only indication that it is Chinese is if you go inside. The owners are a lovely Chinese family. Better you look for a Glidden Paint sign (indicating the hardware store) which is just before the nondescript convenience store.)

Also, if you rent a car, ask if they have a toll booth pass for you, otherwise when you go through your first toll booth (there are two) you need to go through an attended (not automatic) lane to buy one. $5 plus whatever money you put on the card. I recommend putting no less than $7 which should cover going to Playa Selena and getting back to the Airport at the end of your vacation. The minimum amount to recharge a card is $5.
