We had a great stay in this lovely condo. The condo is quite spacious and is very nicely decorated. A very clean and well maintained swimming pool is only a few steps away from the rear patio. Several condos share this pool, but we had it all to ourselves during our stay.
The condo is nicely furnished and very well equipped. My wife and I are Michigan Wolverine fans and my son is a MSU Spartan. We were pleasantly surprised to find the Big Ten Network on the cable system. We enjoyed being able to watch a few football games that we weren't expecting to be able to watch.
One of the nicest features of this condo is the patio furniture…by far, the nicest patio set-up in the development. Our family enjoyed being able to comfortably sit/talk/grill/relax outdoors.
My wife and I have lived in Costa Rica for 8 years. We are very familiar with Guanacaste beaches. Playa Panama is an exceptional beach. Playa Panama has a gentle surf, a nice sand beach and lots of shade trees along the beach. Beach umbrellas are not needed at Playa Panama.
It is about 2 miles to the beach…and a very difficult walk. This distance from the beach has two benefits: 1) the condo’s high elevation provides a beautiful ocean view and 2) the location is very quiet, peaceful and secure.
One previous guest had a problem with security. Security issues in Costa Rica increase as you stay closer to the beach. We had no problems with security. The doors all have good locks. Maintenance and guards maintain a low profile, but are never far away. The local guard dog “Negro” is very friendly and alert. He monitors movement within the complex. He quickly became our 2 year old granddaughter's best friend.
My daughter is not easy to please. She wanted me to rent a condo closer to Playa Hermosa. At the end of the week, she acknowledged that she loved the condo and enjoyed Playa Panama. She begrudgingly acknowledged that I had made a good decision. As the credit card commercial suggests…Priceless!!!
