There is an outdoor shower and lounge area for your R n R. It's located in the dry arc of Panama that receives less rain than other locations, so come here any month of the year and have nice weather.

El Valle Mountain market, orchid farms, local market, spa's,zip line. Panama Canal you have to have lunch there, Gamboa rainforest resort and tours, monkey tours, ride in the canal in a boat.

Everything we could ask for!

  • 5 of 5
We only stayed 1 week but had a very nice vacation. Mayela was so helpful and ensured we knew where everything was and how everything worked before leaving us with the house. July is quiet season so we literally had the whole pool to ourselves everyday, which was so peaceful. We have travelled around Central America and knowing what you can and might not have, it was important for us to have hot water, a washer and dryer and appliances that worked. This house is very new and had it all! We also felt very safe as it is in a gated community with a 24 hour gate keeper.

Our stay was great (Feb 2011)

  • 5 of 5
We had done a review back in 2011, and note a few things here that others didn't mention....
Would recommend paying for Santiago (or whoever the Property Mgr can recommend) at airport because its a long drive and traffic can be crazy in Panama.
Teh Condo was very clean, well equipped, especially the kitchen. Basic supples and flashlite, candles etc were appreciated. (if you go walking late afternoon walk to dinner take it for the walk home!) Wifi and Ipod docking were much appreciated. Area is quiet and we felt safe. 10 minute walk to small local groceries for basics, 2 major grocery stores in Coronado where you can get everything you need. (taxi cost about $5) La Ruina and la Rincon Cacheras were two local restaurants we tried...both were fine.
You can rent a car at ;the Decameron Resort (about 20 minutes down the highway at Santa Clara. Recommend a visit to the Canal, particlarly the interpretive centre at Miraflores, and also the Gambo Discovery Centre (but you need to go early in the day for best bird and animal viewing). A drive to El Valle de Antion is worth it , there is a nice little market, an orchid farm, and a rainforest walk/zip line. There is a very good clinic in Coronado. Beach is good for walking but not much shade.
We stayed for three weeks...a relaxing time... bring books and music and enjoy.

Loft by the Sea- Great place-Great Property Manager

  • 5 of 5
Hello Jason. I would like to thank you and Lisa, and David. Your condo unit in Gorgona was set up very nicely. I especially liked dealing with Mayela. She always took the time to see how we were when she was there with other people, and gave us really good advise when we asked. I did mention a few things to her when we were checking out. We were not able to communicate with caretakers (who are very dedicated to your little yard and pool, Panama style dedication) so when there were issues we had to phone Mayela. She got answers and called back really quick. Just so you know, the owner of number 6, (Ann) asked if she could get your names and had some things she wanted to talk to you about. I should have asked you but we gave your name and email to her anyway. Hopefully that was alright.
We went to La Ruina and saw that band you emailed us about. Got the whole history. Nice place.
We were glad you advised us to get a car even though driving in Panama was a little scary.
Thanks again; we will put a good mention in Home Away website.

Great Place for Seniors that want the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5
Both my self and my wife stayed at Brisas de Malibu, Gorgona (which is approx. 60 km west of Panama City on the PanAm Hwy) from 20 - 29 January. We found the condo complex to be very clean, well run, and comfortable. The complex was found to be exactly as described on the web site, and contained all the necessary kitchen and other equipment for an enjoyable stay. The TV and internet connections operated without any problems. Don't expect to receive any English news programs; all thought this can be overcome if you have a computer available.
The queen size bed was comfortable with plenty of bedding, as well as for the hide-a-bed. Two fans were found to be an asset while sleeping at night, plus the 30kw/day allowable usage was more then adequate

Nice but not for Us

  • 3 of 5
Nice location but will not be considered in near future.
The limitation of 30Kw. We had to leave the accommodation in the pm. The air conditioning units are not capable of maintaining a comfortable level in the afternoon and into early evening without exceeding 30Kw. Window protection on upper level windows may help. Use of the air conditioning as required would have easily exceeded the 30Kw limit adding an additional cost.
Ants, throughout the unit. Continuously visible not only on the floor but also counter cooking areas.
Insufficient tables and chairs pool area. So impossible to have entertain guests outdoors.
Planning on travelling again to Gorgona next week and will seek accommodations elsewhere.

Onsite staff and property manager at checkin process great.

Owner's Response: Hi Ken, since your stay we immediately purchased additional pool furniture for guest comfort , the ants are sugar ant and they are regular part of life in Panama, the best thing to do is NOT leave food out, as far as the AC goes we have not had any other guests feel that the electricity quota was not enough, what we are trying to avoid here is guests leaving it on 24/7 as it is hard on equipment and can be expensive.

It's located on the Arco de Seco (Dry Arc) so the weather is generally dryer here than other spots in the country.
