  • A fun time was had by all

    "My husband and I just spent two months at this rental. Booking the unit was easy and Amy was very responsive and easy to work with. She answered several questions before we booked. We had an amazing time at Playa Serena. The grounds and condo were meticulously kept and staff was very friendly. Hearing the waves right outside 24/7 was amazing and very relaxing and the view of the ocean from the balcony was breathtaking. We swam in the ocean or the pool or both almost every day. Some days the ocean was warmer than the pool. The photos accurately reflect the apartment and we had most everything we needed. There was good cookware for making our own meals and plenty of silverware and dishes. A few of the kitchen utensils are in need of replacement but we did fine preparing meals. The unit was very comfortable and neighbors in the building were friendly and helpful. We did not have a car but figured out the bus system fairly quickly and got around fine. The view out the balcony was surreal. Palm trees, ocean waves and the pool. What better way to relax. We loved having morning coffee or evening pineapple smoothies on the balcony. We made several trips (by bus) to the mercado and fish market in Rio Hato and had fresh fish frequently. Shopping in Coronado was easy by bus or a $5 taxi ride and the variety of stores had everything we needed. Gorgona is a small fishing village with an expat presence but the real expat population is in Coronado. We liked being close enough to get there yet far enough to be in a more quiet setting. We took the buses to Panama City a few times, to the MiraFlores locks (a must see), Albrook Mall, Multilevel Mall and even rode the subway which just started operating in June. We went whale watching, did trivia night at an expat hangout in Coronado and played giant Jenga at La Ruina which is one of the two restaurants within walking distance from the Playa Serena. We are already planning a return to Gorgona and would definitely stay at this unit again."

  • Wonderful Stay!

    "We just spent four nights at this lovely property and had a wonderful stay. It was me, my husband and two adult children. We were able to meet the owners while there and they are kind and helpful. We were promptly greeted by Marlo upon our arrival and he gave us a great golf cart tour of the area and a nice home tour explaining tv's, remotes, air etc... The house is in a lovely gated community where you can enjoy bbq's on the back porch watching a beautiful sunset. The kitchen is a tad small but was equipped with everything we needed and a nice dining room to enjoy meals. You might want to stop at store on the way to pick up basics such as seasonings you may want, paper goods etc... Plenty of sleeping and comfortable beds and linens plus beach towels are provided.. The golf cart is a must to add to your rental. It really is a fun way to get around. The beach club is exactly as pictured and has reasonable rates for food and drink. The beach was pleasant and nice. We had a wonderful stay and would return!!! :)"

  • This is the place you want to rent if you are going to Bocas.

    "I just returned from a week long stay at Vista Azul lodge. I travelled there with my wife, five children (21 to 18 months), and in-laws. The house was exactly as advertised on the website and the beach view from the house was spectacular. Peter Kent answered emails promptly and made the rental process very efficient. I was treated with some celebrity once the local boat taxi drivers discovered I was staying at "Señor Kent's Casa" We went scuba diving with La Buga Dive shop. Tony was our dive master and did a great job. The food there was delicious. We took a catamaran ride with Marcelle at Bocas Sailing. Good trip but rain all day. Most fun activity was an ATV ride with Flying Pirates up the north east coast of Isla Colon. Great fun. The proprietor the I believe is Steve who may actually be a real pirate. Every day brought head high waves 1000 yards from the front door step My 21 yo daughter and 18 yo son said it was the best trip ever and plan to return. My 14 yo daughter and mother in law were a little taken aback by the geckos. No regrets here."

  • NYE In Panama

    "My husband and I welcomed in 2015 on a sandy beach in Playa Serena, listening to the waves and watching the incredible fireworks under swaying palm trees. Yes, it was pretty much perfect! We rented Steve & Diane's condo for a month and thoroughly had a great time. All the amenities of home were provided, wi fi, magic jack, cable, dvd's and a well appointed kitchen. The bonus was having almost immediate access to the beach, the long walks every morning kept us in shape and the continuous dips in the ocean and pool were so refreshing. It became a tradition with a few of us to bring cocktails and appies and meet on the beach at 5:30 for the sunset, not to hard to take. Shopping and restaurants are only a 10 minute car ride and we discovered some good local spots as well, check out the fish market in Gorgona, excellent sea bass and shrimp. Spectacular views abound, day trips to Valle, Panama City and other attractions are very convenient. If you are looking for a relaxing, get-away-from-it-all spot, this is it."
