"A great apartment w 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Clean, all amenities ( even laundry- a huge plus) work well and the views from the rooftop pool are some of the best you can get. I stay there twice a year, and the building staff are all helpful and friendly. Close to everything- grocery stores, huge modern mall, old city, downtown, Balboa Avenue, with easy access to transport corridors, taxis, buses etc. to get to other sites. You will be happy you chose this place!"

"This is a lovely condo, with a view that is absolutely incredible! I was here for a month and loved it. The facility is very, very quiet and peaceful, on weekends it pickups up only a little. Graciela, the contact person, was super responsive, always available via phone or email, and quite helpful. The owner was easy as pie to deal with, I've never had a rental transaction be so uncomplicated. The golf was wonderful! The staff at the golf course all made me feel welcome and it is a good and well thought out course!
Now some downsides of the the condo: since I spent most of my time on the very spacious balcony, (reading a history of the canal while watching it!) including a daily long yoga session, it REALLY NEEDS A NEW PATIO SET! Forget the umbrella which is not usable in the wind, something new and not rusty. The walls need painting or at least some touch up work. A few larger pictures would add so much as there is no interest in terms of the walls. Just a bit more interest in the decor, the structure of the condo itself (granite, etc.) is lovely.
All in all though, it is a wonderful place with a superb view plus a golf course!!! I would not hesitate to rent again or to recommend it."

"Amazing experience with the caribbean beach all for yourself! Kids will love it. Great for snorkling, walking on reefs, or just watching the view. A Paradise very close to Panama City. Support is great with a lovely couple who helps with the overall cleaning and services. Cant wait to get back!"

"We stayed in Cottage 1 for 10 days at the end of January into February. The weather was perfect, warm and sunny, with no rain but nice breezes at all times. The cottage had A/C but we never needed it. The location is excellent and is on 90 acres on both sides of a scenic river. It's quiet and safe at Rio Encantado, yet you are only 20 minutes from Boquete for shopping and cultural interactions. The weather in Boquete is cooler, rainy or misty much of the time, and quite windy, so we found Rio Encantado to be just right for us. The cottage was beautifully appointed and well made with an excellent kitchen and a gorgeous hand-built shower. The patio had a direct view of Volcan Baru, and we spent many mornings and evenings watching the changing light, rainbows, and stars above the volcano. The pool at Rio Encantado is stellar, clean, with no smell of chlorine. It's big enough to swim laps, yet has a shallow end where you can relax and sit. Walking paths are throughout the property which is beautifully landscaped with many mature tropical beauties. The owner, Frank, is thoughtful, interesting, and just a fine person who loves Panama and cares about the people and culture. We've stayed in many VRBO homes in other Latin American countries and this place is by far the best. Some days we stayed at Rio Encantado and others we drove up into the mountains to hike and it was all just fabulous. You can't go wrong at this place."
