"My wife and I stayed in this wonderful studio apartment for two weeks in May/June 2015. The apartment was very clean, comfortable, quiet, and had all the comforts of home. The kitchen was fully-functional with a 6-burner stove. The bathroom was fully-functional with an excellent shower. The air conditioner, clothes washer/dryer, wifi, and cable television worked perfectly well. It was very advantageous to have these comforts. We cooked quite a few meals in the apartment which amounted to a significant savings.
The immediate neighborhood in Casco Viejo was very safe, as there are many government offices and buildings in the area that are protected by the police. Also, a police station is less than two blocks away. There is an excellent, modern grocery store (called Rey) right around the corner, as well several older grocery stores a short walk away. There are also plenty of quality restaurants, cafes, and nightclubs in Casco Viejo. This is a very trendy and popular area in Panama City.
Transportation is not a problem in Casco Viejo. We never had to wait more than 1 minute for a taxi. Please note that most taxi rides are very inexpensive. However, you should ask around to make sure that some taxi drivers are not trying to overcharge you. We also took local buses, which was easy to do (note - be sure to get a bus card, as it is the only way to ride the public buses).
Now for the best part - our hosts, Rudy and Patty. These two individuals are the best hosts you could ever hope for. They were extremely helpful and accommodating in every way possible. Whenever we called or e-mailed, they responded immediately. Here's a tip for you - Be sure to take advantage of Rudy's tours. I would HIGHLY advise this. We met several individuals who wanted to take a boat through the Panama Canal. They tried to book this themselves, and ended up sitting in a boat just looking at the canal, but not going through it. We didn't have that problem. Rudy and Patty knew exactly what to do to prevent any problems. Rudy is an excellent tour guide as well. He is very knowledgeable and accommodating.
I would highly recommend this apartment, and I would definitely stay here again in the future."

"PVQ is located on Ancon Hill, so is perfectly positioned for both nature hikes and exploring Panama City. Easy access to Panama's major roads as well as the routes to the interior is five minutes away. The pool was very nice and the two covered patios with grills and tables were much appreciated. The staff were very helpful and cheerful and the facility was very easy to use with an american-style kitchen. The 6-burner gas stove in particular was awesome!. Also, the 2 1/2 baths made getting ready to go a breeze for a big group!"

"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."

"We stayed at Chris and Maureen's condo for two months and were very happy with the accommodations. The recliners were so comfortable!! We walked he beach every morning and swam in the ocean many afternoons. This unit is in a part of Panama that is truly a paradise. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious and it was obvious that care was taken in the selection of each and every item in the unit with comfort and efficiency in mind. Thanks for a wonderful stay. We also rented their Jimny and got around great in it. Good little vehicle. Beach access is a breeze at Playa Serena."
