"A bright spacious unit with spectacular view. No problem with dogs or roosters as in previous unit.
Main disappointment was the size of the second bedroom and the separate bathroom. We would not be interested in this unit for a future visit if we were expecting guests. We understand there are full size two bedrooms available.
Unlike our previous unit, the direction of the rising sun made for a very hot unit before we got up in the morning. It was also very windy, which made opening the door sometimes hazardous. These are not things you can do anything about but are relevant.
Lots of opportunity for social interaction through happy hours. Moon parties at the beach club were paticularly enjoyable."

"Had the best time of my life in 2014, with family members. All services were provided without hiccups. The Owner's commitments were fully provided better than he stated. He (Albert) makes sure that everything is as he describes in his memorandum of sales. Great service provided by his Captain, Gregorio. Very humble person and ready to meet you expectations. Great place to be....highly recommended!!
TIPS: Vacationers should be prepared in advanced to have everything ready for this type of getaway due to airliners and airport hiccups."

"We recently spent a few days at Bijao. This condo is very comfortable with beautiful views, good security and lovely grounds. The pools are outstanding. There is a small restaurant on the grounds and some great restaurants nearby. Bijao has one of the best swimming beaches in Panama. We will be back."

"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."
