Recent Panama reviews

  • Good location for exploring Panama City

    "Great views of the Bay and Panama's skyline from every room. Within walking distance of a large mall and lots of restaurants. The roof top pool always had sufficient lounge chairs for everyone and the area has two barbeques for resident use. The gym is well equipped and available for all tenants. A two or three dollar cab ride will get you to most locations downtown. The islands on the causeway will be about $15:00. Mararita, the land lady was very helpful in answering all our questions and was quick to bring a new toaster when we noted the absence of one. When we experienced a 24 hour power outage she was as concerned as we were if not more so. To repay us for the inconvenience she and her daughter took us out for Sunday brunch at a beautiful resort. Our only complaint, coming from a small town, was the traffic noise coming from busy Avenida Balboa, and some of the furniture is in need of updating. Overall we enjoyed our four week stay."

  • Wonderful Stay in Valle Escondio Home

    "We had 3 couples staying in the home and the layout was perfect for our group. The home is beautifully decorated and all of the bedrooms were very large. We spent a lot of time on the outdoor patio which overlooked the river and had plenty of seating. Although we had a car, you could easily walk to town if you wanted. Valle Escondido is definitely an upscale area and we will definitely stay in this home again on our next visit."

  • visiteurs venue de France

    "Nous sommes quatre personnes de + de 65 ans, nous avons eu énormément de plaisir à séjourner dans l'appartement de Patty à Casco Viejo . il est très spacieux et confortable, la décoration est très soignée. C'était extrêmement agréable de rentrer en fin d'après midi "chez soi" et d'y prendre un repas dans la jolie vaisselle. Nous avons trouvé tout ce qui nous était nécessaire dans les environs. Patty est une hôtesse charmante et efficace qui parle aussi bien français qu'anglais ou allemand. Nous avons aussi utilisé les services de Rudy pour plusieurs excursions et c'était parfait. merci beaucoup à vous deux"

  • Fantastic Stay at Valle Escondido

    "This property at Valle Escondido has to be seen to be believed! When we first arrived and told a local that we were staying at Valle Escondido he said that it was "Paradise" and he was right! The community itself is an amazing place, but the owners have really spared no expense in building and outfitting this wonderful property. The landscaping is so beautiful, with hundreds of tropical plants and shrubs covering the yard surrounding the home. While technically a "gated community", it does not feel like one at all. Most of the security comes from the fact that the community was built inside a crater surrounded by vertical walls of greenery. But to be honest, Boquete felt very safe anyways The home itself is very spacious with a fully stocked kitchen and all the required necessities to self-cater if you desire. The internet is as fast as the States! I've been to places where you have to bring your own salt & pepper. The owners go above and beyond in providing much more including a whole bag of local coffee, spices, oil, etc. You could easily prepare gourmet meals and enjoy them right on the massive deck. The deck overlooks the beautifully manicured gardens where beautiful birds abound. Just sit on the outdoor couch or chairs and be amazed by the beauty of the place! Overall, I would highly recommend this beautiful property. It is a mere 10 min. drive from the town center where you'll find lots of shopping and restaurants. One consideration is that you would definitely want to rent a car of you decided to stay here. The walk to town is about 20-25 minutes, but to get around Boquete and really appreciate the area, a car is a must. The owners can connect you with a reputable rental car agency. We would definitely stay again!"
