  • Beachfront serenity and sun!

    "Any closer to the beach and we would be in the water! The condo was much more than we expected. Being 5 months pregnant, my husband and I were looking for a relaxing stay during over Christmas and New Years for a 5 weeks. The second we walked into the unit we were wowed. Lots of sunshine coming in from the large patio doors leading out to the balcony. Everything built and furnished to North American standards. Clean as a whistle. Much pride in their ownership. We decided not to rent a car and it was perfectly fine. There are 4-5 minisupers (grocery) within a 5 or 10 minute walk from the condo for your essentials. Also 3 restaurants if you feel like it. If you have a car, you can really blow it out and drive just 10 minutes on the Panamerican to the 3 large malls with the 24 hour supermarkets, restaurants, banks etc. For the few times that we went to Coronado to pick up things, the front security or managers were awesome enough to call a taxi for us and it would come in 5 minutes during the day. We cooked at home every day in the spacious kitchen with full sized fridge. The ice maker was awesome on those hot days! You have all the basic tools to make and eat your meals. In addition, a gas BBQ with side burner is on the balcony. One of the only units that have it seems! Perfect for grilling everything from sausages, steaks and homemade hamburgers to the fresh fish and langostinos purchased from the local fisherman just a 10 minute walk along the beach (or inside roads if the tide is up). That totally made our trip actually. We have stayed in numerous rentals over the year and none had this feature. Two air conditioners installed in the living room and bedroom was appreciated although we only used it once as we preferred to have the fresh ocean air blow in. However there are ceiling fans (1 in the living room, 2 in the bedroom, 1 on balcony) that are perfect so that you won't have to draw too much power using the air con if you don't wish to. The wifi internet connection worked sufficiently for us as we are somewhat addicted to the net! You can be connected in all areas of the house including the balcony. Hot water is on demand in the bathroom however we took mostly cold showers to refresh ourselves. If you want to have an almost private beach to yourself just outside your window, you have it here. The pool and amenities are barely used. Good equipment at the gym. We would love to come back again!"

  • Nice condo at the beach

    "The condo was nice, clean and well cared for. The owner clearly cares about providing her guests with a nice, comfortable stay. The furniture is nice, the beds are nice, the fridge is large, there is a patio, there is clean drinking water, it is on the first floor so you don't have to take luggage up to the 3rd floor and the directions from David are extremely detailed (down to the nearest 1/100th KM!). My biggest hesitation before going there was that the picture of the pool was not a good picture and I was worried that it might be terrible. The pool was very nice. It was large and had a large portion that was about 1 foot deep and there were plenty of chairs and lounge chairs. I cannot give the condo 5 stars because Playa Barqueta didn't totally fit MY definition of paradise but it might fit YOUR definition of paradise. It was quite hot so we limited our midday activities. The beach is wide (150 feet at low tide?), endless, deserted and flat (easy for walking). The downside is that everyone tells you, "Don't get drowned by the undertow." I'm not sure what percentage of people die but when you listen to haters it makes it sound like 100%. The beach is so flat you'd think you could play around and have some fun in the water but we decided to not have our 9 year old out there taking his chances. So, if your definition of paradise includes playing freely in the ocean this location does not fit your definition. However, if you are looking for a remote beach and a nice place to stay this just might be paradise for you. Two traveling tips: The directions start from the "Rey" grocerty store in David. Do your grocery shopping for the entire trip right there. If you forget anything you're looking at a 30 minute drive back to town. There is a tiny grocery about 5 minutes from Playa Barqueta but if you need a weeks worth of groceries you want to load up at Rey. Make a list in advance. Condos don't always have oil, butter, spices, etc... so try to think of everything. Tip 2: The condo owner (Nina) arranged a fishing trip and jungle adventure for us w/ a local guy (Alexander). The fishing didn't work out but we saw 3 families of (poop throwing) howler monkeys. That was awesome and although the monkeys hit me w/ some branches they missed us with the poop. We'll never forget that!"

  • CORONADO BAY 17TH FLOOR - PERFECTION!!!!!!!!!

    "My wife and I recently stayed at this condo and it was perfect. The unit was clean and Lynda and her son (our host) was very welcoming. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back to stay in this unit in the near future. You will not be disappointed."

  • Wonderful Condo!

    "We recently spent three days at this condo at Playa Coronado. There is everything you need there. The apartment is clean and the views spectacular. The owner Laura is extremely helpful and goes out of her way to give you information about the different restaurants and shops nearby. I would certainly recommend this accommodation to any one who wants to spend some downtime at the beach. Thank you Laura!"
