Penthouse Condo fully furnished 1 bedroom just minutes to beach and golf.
I have been living in Panama for over three years. Every day is like being on vacation. I moved from the Northern Virginia area away the fast paced lifestyle. I enjoy the Coronado area because when I feel the need for the city I am only about 1 hour and 20 minutes. The mountains are only 40 minutes away. I feel like I have the best of all worlds!
Cynthia purchased this Condo in 2013

A Detailed Assessment of Top Floor Unit
This unit is located on a fenced golf course, with driving access restricted to a south gate via a long, indirect route. One can walk to this gate in 10 minutes and hail a cab to the village for $1-3 or catch a looping, crowded van for $.50. A view from the roof and google map study will show you the 15-20 minute zigzag walk east or south for accessing the beaches. Walking 5km to the small village is not fun.
The 33 story building has a nice, large, outdoor pool and play area, with the top 2 floors providing a second small pool, game room, social area, and clean, modern gym. The gym and rarely used, neglected roof deck provide an impressive view of the ocean, mountains, and surrounding greenery of trees and golf fareways. The building is attractive, well maintained, and serviced well by 3 fast elevators.
During my low season stay, the building was over half empty, which was nice. But friendly, english speaking expats were met daily, creating a good neighborhood feel.
The 31st floor south facing condo was long and narrow but included a full wall of windows in both rooms and a large balcony with a million dollar unobstructed view of the ocean, beach, mountains, and greenery below. The unit was spacious, modern, clean, roach free, and furnished well with a good bed, bedding, clothes closets, living room sitting area, office desk, dining table, and more. The bathroom was large and included a
jacuzzi tub, separate glass shower, sink vanity, and an abundance of towels. The kitchen was large and well fitted with cleaning supplies, kitchen ware, towels, and even food staples. Besides a washer/dryer, 2 fans, safe, iron, board, hair dryer, and pool towels, there was a generous quantity of bath towels and toiletries provided. The wifi was fast, AC good, unlimited drinking water convenient, and walls solid from adjacent noise.
To be complete, some negatives must be noted:
- both toilets had plumbing problems requiring repair
- the shower had an annoying draining problem
- the location was quite inconvenient with its limited access
- the TV english was quite limited, with no movie channels
- the internet cut out many times for several hours
- the holiday weekend noise from loud party music, barking dogs, and motor bikes was terribly annoying
I stayed here a month and rarely give 5 star ratings, but this is truely an excellent, well priced place, despite its flaws. I hope to book again.
A Fabulous Month at 31B Coronado Golf Tower
We spent the month of January 2017 in Cynthia's lovely condo. It was a great and relaxing holiday. The condo is situated on the 31st floor with spectacular views of the mountains, ocean, beach and golf course. We spent most evenings using the barbecue and having dinner on the balcony. The balcony was nicely appointed with a table and chair set, two lounge chairs and a propane BBQ. It was fun watching the fireworks on the balcony on our first weekend there, leftovers from New Years Eve! The condo has everything you would ever need, a fully equipped kitchen, lots of sheets and towels, a very comfy king sized bed and a nice sized flat screen TV with a great cable package. The wireless internet was also very reliable, we brought our Apple iTV and streamed Netflix which worked fine. Both Cynthia and Tom were gracious hosts and any issues we had (which were minor for sure) were dealt with promptly. The building is modern and new with many amenities such as high speed elevators, pools on the roof, gym and social areas. Each Tuesday evening there would be a social meet and greet which was a great opportunity to meet other vacationers and owners in the building. Buying the golf membership for the month is highly recommended, not only did we have unlimited golf we were able to use the amenities of the Blue Bay resort a short walk away. We spent many afternoons relaxing around the beautiful pool down by the ocean. The golf was great too, a very nice and challenging course. Cynthia recommended Alejandro Hepburn of PointB Executive Transfers for our transfer to and from the airport. Alejandro was excellent, we also booked him to take us on a Panama tour which included the Panama Canal, Panama City and Casco Viejo. It was an awesome tour and we would highly recommend Alejandro and his company.
We had a wonderful month and would recommend this condo and Panama in general. It is a beautiful country with lots to explore. We will be back next year for sure. Thanks again Cynthia and Tom, hope to see you in 2018.
Magnificent view. Gracious host
This penthouse condo wows you from the moment you walk on the door. The 180 degree views from the mountains across the golf course to the ocean are magnificent. The king sized bed, jacuzzi tub, oversized shower and balcony view make any stay comfortable. Cynthia was an incredibly gracious host offering advice, dinner invitations and even a ride to the bus when we left. She is gracious and fun and show you properties for investment and living if you are interested. The exercise room and pool were used everyday. The kitchen. Is well-equipped and the extra guest bathroom was a plus as well. I just wish we could have stayed longer. Almost 3 weeks was not enough. Thanks Cynthia!
Wonderful Place to stay
We stayed here for a month this winter and really enjoyed our time. The condo is exactly as the pictures show. It is nicely furnished and has everything needed for a long stay. The view from the balcony is incrediable! The owner Cynthia is a wonderful person who also makes sure that you have everything you want. We mentioned that we would have liked an electric kettle and a half hour later she was at our door with one. Cynthia and her husband treated us so well and we highly recommend this property. It is beautiful and so easy to meet the friendly residents who live in the building.
We're coming back!
We stayed in this incredible condo for a month in August. We loved it so much that we're now in the process of selling everything we own in the States and moving back. The owner is an absolute delight who quickly became a good friend. She brought us all over, introduced us to some great people, took us to some great night spots, etc.
This destination is located within a gated community and only minutes to the beach. The breathtaking views of both the mountain and ocean can be enjoyed from your balcony as well as the rooftop. Restaurants and grocery stores are convenient and easily accessible. Activities available include tennis, golfing, four wheeling, water sports, sun bathing and much more.
