Lovely home in Palmar

  • 4 of 5

The home is comfortable for 7 people. The ACs work well and the beds are comfortable. The pool was smaller than expected but we spent most of the time at the beach which is just a 5 minute walk away. The WiFi and cable TVs worked very well. The caretaker was very attentive. It was a very nice stay.

Belle maison confortable

  • 4 of 5

Maison propre, confortable et bien équipée. La cour et la piscine sont vraiment bien entretenues. Le lit de la chambre principale est très bien mais le matelas double du lit superposé est mou. Il y a un problème avec la température de l'eau dans les douches parfois nous n'avions que de l'eau chaude. Bonne localisation, à deux minutes à pied de la plage El Palmar et à 25 minutes en auto des très belles plages Santa Clara et playa Blanca. Le village de El Valle avec ses chutes et ses musées est à 35 minutes. Nous avons passé 2 belles semaines de vacances dans cette maison.

Beautiful homes, clean, safe and attentive staff!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 12 people and all were impressed with the homes, grounds, facilities. The caretakers Kique and his wife were very customer oriented and assisted us even to light the barbecue. Minutes away walking from a beautiful beach we spent two beautiful nights. We had a lovely leisurely walk to the Bay View hotel where we had a super Marisco dinner. The homes had everything a good cook needs -- and we purchased our food close by at Coronado and the local market in El Valle. Every minute of the day you could see our family with a SMILE. Thank you Ivan & Carmen for this vacation!

Great Getaway for Family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay. This townhouse had many of the comforts of home and we enjoyed the pool and relaxing in the hammocks. Our kids had fun playing with the other kids staying at the other townhouse on the property as well. Everyone working at the property was so helpful and available and we felt safe with the security that was provided at night. Everything with the house was fine. The kitchen opens to the DR/LR, nice to have cable TV and a washer and dryer. This was our first time renting one of these homes and it worked out perfectly.

House Parties?! LOUD MUSIC Til 3am

  • 2 of 5

It is always an adventure to stay in someone else's home while you are in a new place. This locale is about two hours from the airport during heavily trafficked times, which is quite challenging to get to the home for the first time in the dark! When we arrived to the home, we saw that every single fixture was stained filled with soap scum and was looking as though the house hadn't been given a proper cleaning in over a year. Almost every towel was stained and some were crunchy. So, I set out to scrub away after unpacking. We were met by Ivan, who referred to himself as the Manager. He owns four of the six condos there. Apparently they rent 2 bedrooms to eight people. Ivan lives in one of the three and rents out on Saturday to locals. Ivan is an owner who lives next door and plays his music so loudly that you feel the bass through the walls all evening and into the wee hours of the morning. On Saturday night, they place guards at the entrance to the neighborhood and they charge the visitors $10 for parking. Each of Ivan's three condos had the full 8 people attending them. The pool is big enough for one family not for several and certainly not eight per family! These attendants were not particularly rowdy, however they enjoyed themselves laughing and talking outside which was easily heard by us until four in the morning. Needless to say, our Anniversary Day was wrecked due to no sleep.

Although Carmen cared about our stay, she was not in the area. Ivan is an owner where rules did not apply to him. So, we attempted to stay away from the house as much as possible while Ivan and his guests were there. We enjoyed cooking and eating our breakfasts outside of the condo on the cute table set when no one, but Victor was around. Victor kept the grounds and the pool immaculately. A gem, Victor introduced us to his tall, handsome son. Amada, the housekeeper, was invasive wanting to clean at 8:00am. She provided us with a massage therapist that charged us $30 per hour for basically rubbing lotion on us. However, we enjoyed looking at the different beaches within half an hour away-beautifully remote. Carlito's empanadas and Manglar Lodge's food were delicious. Wifi service was a big plus. We enjoyed siteseeing at the Mira Flores Visitor's Center and saw the big ships go through the locks. It was a shame about the travel time to and from the Pearl Islands because we had so wanted to see them.

Overall, we would not recommend this to friends.

Owner's Response: There are traffic issues in Panama - as in any big City. There is construction because the country is installing a subway system due to be completed 2014. I did express this information to you prior to your trip. The country is investing into the infrastructure so there is better lighting on the streets, improved road conditions but one must remember this is still a third world country. There can be issues with electrical outrages or problems with water supply but lately these disturbances seem to be less. I am concerned about all your comments we have never received such poor feedback. I had bought all new sheets and towels the end of January. I must admit we do try and conserve energy and prefer to hang the laundry outside so perhaps that is why the towels were “crunchy”. I also did inform you on weekends we have a gate which is monitored for people coming to the beach. They do collect a fee for parking but if you tell them you are a resident in the homes there is NO fee. The playa community uses this money to clean the beaches and make sure cars are parked properly. The units are townhouses so there are six units total and when they are all rented it can be very busy - especially during the holiday periods. I am sorry for your experience. Panama is a very beautiful place. We feel our home is a safe and comfortable place. We value our groundskeeper Victor and our housekeeper Amada - they are honest hard working individuals.

Very Relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

Rented a car at the airport and headed out to the condo. Bit of an issue getting the key as we were later than expected. Issue resolved and we were able to move in that night. The complex was extremely well maintained--Victor is a gem--and Amada cleaned every few days. Hands down favorite place to eat was Manglar Lodge, which was about a 5 minute walk away towards the beach. We also drove to Los Camisones, where the paella is absolutely wonderful. The condo itself is reasonably basic in terms of furnishings and decor. We did some cooking and were able to find most implements. Used the pool volleyball net A LOT!! Victor helped us buy fish in San Carlos one morning--right from the ocean that morning! Visited El Valle on a Sunday and took in the local market--wonderful fresh produce for very little. Beach at Playa Palmar is black sand so bit different from what we were expecting but a beautiful beach nonetheless. Carmen was very helpful with suggestions. Great vacation for ourselves and our friends!!
