  • Nice condo at the beach

    "The condo was nice, clean and well cared for. The owner clearly cares about providing her guests with a nice, comfortable stay. The furniture is nice, the beds are nice, the fridge is large, there is a patio, there is clean drinking water, it is on the first floor so you don't have to take luggage up to the 3rd floor and the directions from David are extremely detailed (down to the nearest 1/100th KM!). My biggest hesitation before going there was that the picture of the pool was not a good picture and I was worried that it might be terrible. The pool was very nice. It was large and had a large portion that was about 1 foot deep and there were plenty of chairs and lounge chairs. I cannot give the condo 5 stars because Playa Barqueta didn't totally fit MY definition of paradise but it might fit YOUR definition of paradise. It was quite hot so we limited our midday activities. The beach is wide (150 feet at low tide?), endless, deserted and flat (easy for walking). The downside is that everyone tells you, "Don't get drowned by the undertow." I'm not sure what percentage of people die but when you listen to haters it makes it sound like 100%. The beach is so flat you'd think you could play around and have some fun in the water but we decided to not have our 9 year old out there taking his chances. So, if your definition of paradise includes playing freely in the ocean this location does not fit your definition. However, if you are looking for a remote beach and a nice place to stay this just might be paradise for you. Two traveling tips: The directions start from the "Rey" grocerty store in David. Do your grocery shopping for the entire trip right there. If you forget anything you're looking at a 30 minute drive back to town. There is a tiny grocery about 5 minutes from Playa Barqueta but if you need a weeks worth of groceries you want to load up at Rey. Make a list in advance. Condos don't always have oil, butter, spices, etc... so try to think of everything. Tip 2: The condo owner (Nina) arranged a fishing trip and jungle adventure for us w/ a local guy (Alexander). The fishing didn't work out but we saw 3 families of (poop throwing) howler monkeys. That was awesome and although the monkeys hit me w/ some branches they missed us with the poop. We'll never forget that!"

  • We will be back soon

    "We had a fantastic and very relaxing time in the loft. It was certainly up to standards and everything was found just as described in the ad. The house was perfect for us, a small family of three, spacious and luxurious feeling, and fully equiped with everything you may need during your stay (hammocks, kitchen facilities, laundry machine). We enjoyed taking walks at sunset on the incredible beautiful beach, sometimes the whole beach to ourselves, and taking a cool dip in the pool while watching the view over the endless ocean. Our baby daughter enjoyed the daily greeting "hola" to the colorful big parrot that seemed to live in the premices. The design of the villa is spectacular and very tastefully decorated. A true pleasure and magic place, we'll be happy to visit again soon!"

  • Panama Paradise

    "We had an amazing time at Villa Pacifica. The house was beautiful and comfortably slept our two families. Mornings were spent enjoying a cup of coffee overlooking the ocean, alongside the beautiful infinity pool. We enjoyed walks/runs on the beach, playing in the sand and waves, making meals in a spacious and fully stocked kitchen, our children's laughter as they played in the pool, and adult conversation under the stars. Maria, the owner's assistant was a great help, arriving every day to freshen up the beds and bathrooms and even help with laundry. As a mother of four children, this was greatly appreciated! All of Greg's recommendations for restaurants and grocery stores came in very handy. We enjoyed a casual Panamanian lunch at Isla Iguana and one evening we had an exquisite, fancier dinner while feeling the ocean breeze at Amareto, a new restaurant near the villa. Our families return to Panama every other year and we are hoping to return to the villa in the future!"

  • Limpia, cómoda, acogedora!

    "Nos hospedamos en casa los Quetzales por una sola noche. Todo estaba muy limpio y ordenado. Las casas tienen su total privacidad, sin embargo no se puede hacer mucho ruido. El Sr. Dirk muy amable y pendiente de cualquier necesidad. Me gustaría que tuvieran un BBQ para la próxima vez."
