Claudia purchased this apartment in 2011
Four of us stayed in Claudia's wonderful condo from April 9 to the 16. It is exactly as described in the Web site. What it can't describe is the breathtaking views from the balcony. We actually spent most of our time on the balcony. The comfortable outdoor furniture and cooling breeze made it a very appealing place for morning coffee and after dinner drinks. The entire apartment was set up for comfort including a washing machine and dryer as well as a barbeque which we used quite regularily. The master bedroom was spacious and has an ensuite bathroom and walk in closet. As well there are patio doors that open onto the balcony. The spare bedroom was adequate with a double bed on the bottom and a bunk bed on top. The booking process went very smoothly even though I made a mistake while booking, Claudia quickly fixed the problem. We did run into a couple of other small issues which Claudia fixed or tried to fix immediately. A couple of suggestions would be to have directions on working the television as well as some information on areas of interest and restaurants around Gorgona and Coronado. Also it would be nice to have an extra chair in the living room for seating. We just brought in one of the chairs from the balcony.
The pools and grounds at the condo were kept very clean and pleasing to the eyes. The staff were very friendly and since we could not speak Spanish they would find someone who could.
The Tiki bar just outside the condo has great food and a lively atmosphere. And yet the noise could not be heard from the condo. It is owned by two American expats, Cat was one of the women and unfortunately I cannot remember the others name. But the relationship they had with the staff and customers was an indication on just how great the place was. They even managed to find us a hockey game on their television. On another note, we walked every day down the beach in both directions. There is a fishing village not far from the condo and we heard you could buy fresh fish if you were up early enough. We felt very safe in the area and discovered another wonderful restaurant called La ruina, just down the road. Again a great place to eat and meet both Panamanians and expats. It is owned by an American expat and his Panamanian wife.
Overall we had a wonderful experience and I highly recommend staying here. Thank you Claudia for sharing your place with us
My husband and I Just got back from 33 days at Claudia's condo and we could have stayed longer. Claudias response time was excellent. My daughter, her husband and 2 babies came down for 1 week. Our grand daughter had lots of fun especially in the Play Room. The condo was comfortable and kitchen had everything we needed in including a toaster oven that was great to warm up empanadas. Besides the 3 eating facilities on the property It's walking distance to 3 local restaurants and mini grocery store. We had great weather but we had a number of days where it was very windy but everyone said it would be too hot without the wind. As far as the beach goes you could walk for miles during low tide. There were only a few days that the waves were too big for me to go swimming as I'm not a great swimmer. It's very quite Monday-Thursday and more active on the weekend when the Tiki Bar is open, a popular spot and nice to have the music on the beach.
wife and I stayed at the Condo for 3 weeks, Jan 10 through Jan 31, 2015. Claudia couldn't have been more responsive and helpful. The Condo is self is large, with lots of room. It is a corner, floor through apartment so windows on 3 sides. Perfect cross ventilation. Very good A/C. The bed and furniture was actually comfortable. TV and WiFi worked great. Kitchen was terrific with lots of cooking and preparing equipment. The unit was spotless when we arrived, including all three bathrooms. Under ground parking so you never have to go into a hot car. You do need a car in Gorgona.
The building is very secure, pools very well maintained and always clean. Easy beach access. The restaurant (Blue Water Cafe) next to the pool was some of the best food we have had in Panama. This was our 3rd trip to Panama and our best. Would recommend this Condo without hesitation!
Claudia was helpful and easy to communicate with. The place was as advertised and was very clean. The pools were great and the beach was right in front of the suite. The New Years party at the common area was great and it went until the wee hours of the morning. The weather was very sunny and hot. We even walked from the condo to Coronado - once. We took a cab back. There are 3 large supermarkets nearby. The onsite snack bar was handy. We didn't get to try the onsite restaurant. There was parking for our rental car. The in-suite WIFI worked great.
Stayed with my daughter and 2 grandchildren for 2 weeks. We had a wonderful time, views of the mountains from the kitchen windows and ocean from the living room and balcony were fabulous (even the master bath had a great view). The complex has 3 pools, the largest was perfect for the kids. You could walk right out to the beach. There was also an indoor playroom with a climbing play set that the kids loved. They are building a mini golf course. The apartment layout was extremely live able, beds were comfortable and kitchen was well equipped. There is underground parking. The owner's cousin met us and was very helpful and responsive, as was the owner via email.
We hope to visit there again next year.
We stayed in this apartment for a month with our 2 small children. The apartment is beautiful and big. The owners welcomed us at the apartment. They were very nice and took the time to answer our questions. We even had access to them by email and they were quick to reply. The complex employees were also very nice and accommodating.
The apartment complex is new, modern and on a beautiful beach. It is a great place to go with children; they have a park, a soccer field and an awesome pool for children (with the second building, they will add tennis, a basketball court, a bar, a bigger pool, etc). There is also a spa and gym for adults.
Other than the construction noise from a second apartment building being built just beside ours (please note that they work on Saturdays), it was paradise. Once the construction is completed (by March), we would definitely come back.
Thank you to the owners for sharing your beautiful property with us.
