Recent Panama reviews

  • Great family trip

    "Our family just returned from Panama, and stayed at this rental for 1 week. (2 adults, 3 kids ages 14, 12, and 9) The house was overall better than we expected, with even more space than we needed. Everything you need is there, and the A.C. in the house works great on the hotter days. The ocean view deck was a big highlight. Relaxing in the hammocks, enjoying the incredible views was hard to beat. Also, the management was extremely helpful and professional at arrival, and when we had occasional questions. The house is in a great spot, as it is close enough to town, but far enough away to be much more relaxed than places in town. Getting around in Bocas del Toro was different than we expected, so renting a golf cart is highly recommended. Taxis are everywhere, so that's an option too, as well as renting a bicycle. There is also a nice restaurant/bar(Paki Point) 100 yards down the road that serves good food and drinks. We visited during the rainy season, but were pleasantly surprised it only rained "bad" for 2 of our 12 days. Most nights were rainy, but that was not a problem at all. The thunder and lightning storms some evenings were exciting too. The clouds were also a bit of a bonus, as they help keep the heat down some. We didn't get to see the Monkeys, as they were hiding out from the rain mostly, but we did get to hear them a few times. If you enjoy the rainforest while being nearly ocean front, and outside of the heart of town, you will enjoy this rental. Be sure to rent ATV's from Flying Pirates, a really fun way to explore the area. We hope to return soon ! Family From California"

  • Beach Vacation

    "We stayed at Moti and Susan's place in May. We loved the place and the experience of living by the ocean. The pictures just don't do it justice. It's a beautiful modern escape property with gorgeous ocean views. We grilled fresh fish we bought from the fishermen on the beach and ate romantic dinners on the balcony just listening to the waves."

  • Even better than expected!

    "I rated our stay 5 stars not because everything was "perfect" (what is?) but because it was better than expected and we were happy we ended up booking this house. We were worried we should stay closer to, or on, Isla Colon but, once we got oriented we realized it didn't really matter. All travel is by boat anyway so being in Salt Creek wasn't a big deal - just budget for the cost of gas for the boat. Sure the boat ride over was a little longer than expected (~35 min) but, we enjoyed it as it gave us our first look at the area. The beach is LITERALLY steps down from the house and it's idyllic: pretty, calm and warm. The Hobie Cat and kayaks were a true bonus and Gregorio's willingness to take us whenever/where ever ensured we never felt "stuck". It's also on the edge of the forest so, we went for a BIG hike to a bat cave with one of the villagers and got to really see/hear/smell a beautiful rainforest. I wouldn't pay any mind to that whiny review posted earlier either (they should never have gone to an eco-house in a national park if they were more concerned about air conditioning and bugs! In a RAINFOREST...go figure!) The power and hot water were reliable for us; open windows + ceiling fans provided all the breezes for cooling down we needed. Plenty of towels were provided and the kitchen was well-stocked with equipment. Sure, the stove-top coffee maker could use a replacement, but it worked just fine. We were happy we brought in a thorough supply of groceries though and you should assume you need to bring EVERYTHING in including lots of water. Got topped up with some goodies from the locals (mmm! fresh fish, coco bread + young coconuts!). Really sweet people, neither pushy nor greedy, just earthy and gentle and ask fair prices for their goods or services. The porch offered wonderful sunrise AND sunset views and we enjoyed going for big walks down the beach. Unfortunately, the visibility of the water wasn't great while we were there, but that's just nature. Regardless, you can just walk into water with a sandy bottom and then rinse off at the handy outdoor shower. We simply approached this house as a "tropical cottage": a nice, well laid out, comfortable rental that was just what we were looking for to get away from it all. BE WARNED! The no-see-ums were RUTHLESS from dusk until about 8 PM! Get coconut oil from locals IMMEDIATELY! Albert, thanks for lending your house and you are very lucky to have a loyal assistant like Gregorio. What a sweet man!"

  • Remote and authentic

    "The listing is accurate, calling it remote. It is at least 1 1/2 hr. from tourist sites. It is in a small, friendly village where ONLY spanish is spoken. It does get VERY lively over weekends- there was a double header at the ball field on Sun. Music gets VERY loud and can go on late into the night. Other night noises ie-Dogs barking and fighting, roosters (and I mean a CHORUS), wake you VERY early. The house is very clean and comfortable. Be aware there is no hot water (which I think is normal for Panama?) The caretaker is very nice- but again, only spanish speaking. The owner is very helpful and gives lots of suggestions for day trips and maps. It was an adventure and we felt like we got a real authentic Panama experience."
