This was a very nice house on the perfect beach. The house was very comfortable (and affordable) for three couples, and had excellent lounging areas inside and out. The pictures accurately portray the house.
There were a few minor maintenance issues, and the property owner, and on-site manager were very proactive in taking care of them. Overall the customer service was very good, and Don was very helpful and informative when it came to my many questions. We really appreciated all the advice he gave us regarding our stay in Panama.
The house is literally steps away form the most beautiful beach, with NO people around. The water is warm, the surf is moderate, and there is essentially no rip tide or undertow. It was really fantastic, and Don provided boogie boards to enjoy the surf with. We also really appreciated the cell phone Don provided for local calls.
The city of Las Lajas is about five miles away, and provides good dining and groceries. San Felix is just a few miles further and has anything else you might need.
Be aware, Playa Las Lajas is about a five hour drive from Panama City and an hour drive from David. We drove from Panama City and actually enjoyed the drive. From our beach house we took a couple day tours to Boquete and Boca Chica, both really good experiences. In Boca Chica we snorkeled with Agua Adventures and in Boquete we zip-lined at Tree Trek and had a coffee tour with Habla Ya Spanish Schools. All of these adventures were great and well worth the money. We also visited the Catholic mission in San Felix, which was an interesting and worthwhile activity. Make sure you stop by ChiriCream ice creamery and Naturalamante (pizza restaurant) in Las Lajas. These are two first class outfits with excellent food and really nice owners.
Between day trips we had days to just lounge around at our beautiful Playa Las Lajas house. I think these days were even better than the day trips!
Don, thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful house. I will definitely recommend it to friends, and I know I can't get back soon enough.
