Great location. Needs maintenance.
Great location. Needs maintenance.
We loved the location. It is within walking distance to a great mall in one direction, and a wonderful park in the other direction. The building was very secure. Communication with owner, manager, and housekeeper was great. The apartment size was very comfortable for 4 people. Kitchen was well stocked with what you need for simple meals. Nice TV, internet worked well, cable channels available. Air conditioners in the bedrooms work well. However, we did have a few concerns. First, there was a significant unpleasant odor, most likely coming from the drains. Most pronounced in the hall bathroom and the kitchen. Air freshener masks the odor a little, but it does not go away. Second, the apartment needs to be maintained and updated. Walls/doors could use a fresh coat of paint, second bedroom door the knob needs to be replaced (sorry, but masking tape does not do the trick), furniture is old and shows it's age (pictures were taken when everything was new). The dryer works fine, but the washer needs repair, it agitates, but the barrel turns with the agitator, so the clothes just go around in a circle, not being cleaned, and when the lid is down it is very loud. The living room air conditioner does not work. Finally, the owner states that he replaced the windows with soundproof glass. All I can say is that the master bedroom it is quieter than the second bedroom, but you are still going to wake up at 6 am from the street noise and school across the main avenue. The second bedroom is very loud in the morning, and is definitely not soundproof glass. We are used to getting up early, so it was not a problem personally. Light sleepers, or those who want to sleep in past 6 am may be disappointed. If the owner invests some of the rental funds back into the apartment to resolve these issues, it will be a great place to stay, and I would want to return. Until then I could not recommend the property to my friends.

The condo was exactly as described and Tony was very helpful and accomodating to us being that it was literally about 24hours notice. The condo was very clean and adequately stocked with all the utensils needed. Wifi access was excellent and the building very secure. There was some street noise but nothing outrageous or out of the ordinary for Panama. The pool was out of service due to repairs but other than that we were very comfortable here. It is literally several blocks from the Multi plaza and around the corner and a few blocks away from the supermarket. Fresh linens and toiletries were provided (soap, towels, hand towels & toilet paper) again there was nothing more we could have asked for. Tony was very understanding as this was not a vacation for us and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed and privacy to boot. Aldridge was great in responding as quickly as he did and had everything arranged while I was actually in flight and was ready by the time I landed. De todo corazon les agradezco lo que hicieron para mi y mi familia en un momento tan pesame. And I will be sure to rent with you again (with more notice!) when I return in November.

This condo met our expectations based on the listing description and photos. It's location is situated in a more residential neighborhood but is within walking distance to stores, malls, and restaurants. For longer distances we could catch a taxi right outside the condo complex. The condo was nicely furnished and very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. It was nice to have the washer and dryer available. The TV and entertainment center made it feel more like home. The roof top pool and fitness area were an added bonus. Tony was VERY helpful. We really appreciated that he arranged taxi service for us to and from the airport. He also offered suggestions for restaurants and other attractions. Street noise could be heard even though the condo is on the 18th floor, but it wasn't anything that doesn't come with being in a big city. We would recommend the property without hesitation. Thank you for sharing it!

This condo is located in a most coveted area of Panama. It is close to one of its most popular malls, great restaurants, and an exclusive Sheraton Hotel. The pictures shown reflect a general idea of the condo, but having been there I saw that it has more benefits than can be portrayed with pictures. We found it to be exceptionally clean and everything in the kitchen was well organized. It is a complete kitchen with all the gadgets you need to prepare a meal. Washer and dryer are a super plus. Everyone was very informative about where it was and what we could expect. I highly recommend this place.

This condo is a mixed bag. It's in a great location, just blocks from a major shopping center with grocery store and the world famous Johns Hopkins hospital in Panama City. However, even though it's on the 18th floor of a very nice building, there is a lot of street noise. I suspect that most places in this area are very noisy unless they have double-pane windows. Panamanians never signal a turn but honk their horns every 2-3 seconds for no apparent reason! For whatever reason I was never able to get onto the WiFi and calls to the manager went unanswered until my last night and even with the pass code I was unable to get logged in. The TV was excellent and had channels in Spanish, English, Chinese, German, and French. The kitchen was small but had all needed appliances including washer/dryer. The apartment was clean and tidy and nicely decorated, except for the pile of WiFi cables and modems on the master bedroom floor. There is plenty of closet space for longer stays. One thing I found odd was the lack of shampoo, soap, or any type of personal hygiene items I normally find in vacation rentals. Fortunately I'd brought my own, in case. Again, the Riba Smith grocer was just down the street in the mall so any hygiene items you need can be found there, as well as coffee, sugar, tea, etc. The owner charges a damage deposit but is very quick to refund it following check out. Their needs to be a good information packet to send prior to arrival as well as a guest information packet for the condo. I had to ask around for information about restaurants, shopping, directions, etc. Be sure you get everything you need well prior to your departure as well as printing out Google maps of the area. There are no good maps available of the city and it's incredibly confusing to drive there, if you plan to. Be sure to ask for a check-out list, as well. I had a great trip down there and this condo is in an excellent location for most things. Plan to leave well in advance if you're going to the west side of town (canal, beach cities, Amador, or Casco Viejo) any time around rush hour, even if taking a taxi. Lots of traffic and constant road work will slow you down.

This condo truly represents the pictures as shown. It was spacious, exceptionally clean, functional and bed in Master Bedroom was very comfortable with firm mattress lots of closet space too. Our daughter who is 5'6" said her room also was very comfortable in spite of the bed being "short". Her feet hung over the bed. The security is very good though the neighborhood seemed safe, and the guard was always helpful in getting us a taxi. We walked to MultiPlaza and Punta Pacifica Hospital and to Jimmy's restaurant (delicious seafood!). The check-out process was quick and we promptly were credited our deposit within couple of weeks. Our only complaints are 2: 1) the gym and the pool were not available for us to use since it seemed there was maintenance being done. 2) If you are a light sleeper, the traffic was bothersome with the trucks who would engage their gears to "brake". Other than that, we would return there and stay again.

First, I want to thank you for making your condo available to us during our visit to Panama. We had a wonderful time, enjoyed your home immensely, and absolutely fell in love with Panama. I am certain that I'd like to make Panama my permanent residence at some point in the future. Tony was wonderful, so knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We couldn't have asked for a more hospitable and enjoyable experience...so we thank you for everything. Well, thank you again, and maybe we'll do business again at some point in the future.

About the owner: I was born in Panama, grew up in Brooklyn New York. I am a computer professional working in Atlanta. Travel and photography are my hobbies. I really like Panama City and just enjoy the food here always fresh.
Why the Owner Chose Panama City:
I chose to buy a vacation home here because I discovered that I have many relatives still here and I come to visit on a regular basis and wanted somewhere nice to stay in the city. I love going around finding places to take pictures. I love salsa so places to dance and of course eat. My son really loves it here with all the fruits available and access to the beach not too far a drive This is also great now that the new highway to Colon, means quick access to the Caribbean Sea
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This place is within a 5 minute cab ride of the multiplaza mall, Hospital Punta Pacifica, ATLAPA convention center and various restaurants nearby. Este condo is 5 minutos por taxi a Multiplaza Mall Hospital Punta Pacifica, Y puedes caminarlo si quieres. Lo mismo para ir a ATLAPA para convenciones.
