Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Just 50 minutes from Panama City, the brand new Playa Serena Resort complex, is located in Gorgona, on the beach. Our condo provides spectacular views of the ocean and Coronado beyond. Whether standing on your balcony enjoying the tropical breezes, or looking out the windows, all one sees is sky and water and sand. The palm lined beach is a mixture of white and volcanic sand fronting the warm Pacific Ocean. Paradise!

The complex contains about 54,000 sq. ft. of open social area, with a swimming pool, gazebo, thatch covered gathering areas, paths, and direct access to the beach by way of stairs, two elevators and the driveway. Also included are indoor social areas which include a gym and party room.

Our condo is light and bright, offering lots of upgrades. It has tiled floors and granite countertops. It is over 1350 square feet and is comfortably furnished, to feel like your home away from home. The living room and dining room both have spectacular views of the ocean, with a balcony to sit and relax. The dining room table can seat six, and the living room has plenty of seating with a plasma television and WiFi internet.

The master suite has a quality queen size bed, and a large walk in closet with full built-ins, which includes an electronic safe. A full sized shower is in the roomy master bath with double sinks. The second bedroom has twin beds and built-in closet. The second bathroom is adjacent. Both bedrooms have ocean views. Linen and towels are provided.

The kitchen is modern and fully equipped, with a gas stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. All kitchen appliances are stainless steel. Off the kitchen is a laundry/utility room with a stackable washer and dryer. On the balcony is a propane BBQ.

We are a 10 minute ride from Coronado, which has 3 modern grocery stores, boutiques, and many wonderful restaurants. There is an 18-hole Championship Golf Club, pharmacy, and medical clinic. El Valle is a 40 minute drive which has thermal spas and zipline adventures.

Panama is a diverse country with lush mountains offering hiking, wildlife, and birding. The beaches have snorkeling, boating and swimming. Because of its small size, all is very accessible, and it is a wonderful country to discover!

Beautiful location with an outstanding layout to the apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time. Some of the unit's components need upgrades ie linens, towels, balcony furniture. All in all a great stay. Thanks.

Beachfront oasis

  • 4 of 5

After spending 3 weeks in a tiny little Casita in Coronado, we were thrilled to walk into this enormous beachfront oasis for the second half of our Panama vacation. The view is spectacular and the beach access divine. This is one of very few places we've found here with shade on the beach, courtesy of the palm trees and the man-made palapas just outside the secured access point. With lounge chairs you can roll onto the beach and the friendly guards watching over your stuff if you go for a walk, you can enjoy the beach here unlike in neighboring Coronado. We walked to the natural tidal pools at low tide and along miles of empty beach each day. The local fish market is a huge plus and we enjoyed the fresh catches of Tuna, Redfish, and Corvina. The unit itself is very clean and spacious with a large and well equipped kitchen, modern appliances and tremendous area for food prep. Seating in the living area is plentiful and comfortable. We only found a couple minor areas for improvement, we wish the bed was larger, and the cable service for the TV didn't work during our stay. Otherwise, it was perfect. There are 6 restaurants within a stone throw from local fonda to the top rated Bahia Beachfront restaurant and a choice of 2 local super minis. Transport to the highway is easy on the local bus for 30 cents and from the highway you can easily get anywhere from Penonome to the city in about an hour. Lots of activities here as well, a pool and foosball table, ping pong, gym, library of novels in the common area and good wifi in the unit. Staff are friendly and helpful. Booking was a bit more difficult with contracts and less payment options but worth the effort in the end.

Beachfront serenity and sun!

  • 5 of 5

Any closer to the beach and we would be in the water!

The condo was much more than we expected. Being 5 months pregnant, my husband and I were looking for a relaxing stay during over Christmas and New Years for a 5 weeks.

The second we walked into the unit we were wowed. Lots of sunshine coming in from the large patio doors leading out to the balcony. Everything built and furnished to North American standards. Clean as a whistle. Much pride in their ownership.

We decided not to rent a car and it was perfectly fine. There are 4-5 minisupers (grocery) within a 5 or 10 minute walk from the condo for your essentials. Also 3 restaurants if you feel like it. If you have a car, you can really blow it out and drive just 10 minutes on the Panamerican to the 3 large malls with the 24 hour supermarkets, restaurants, banks etc.

For the few times that we went to Coronado to pick up things, the front security or managers were awesome enough to call a taxi for us and it would come in 5 minutes during the day.

We cooked at home every day in the spacious kitchen with full sized fridge. The ice maker was awesome on those hot days! You have all the basic tools to make and eat your meals.

In addition, a gas BBQ with side burner is on the balcony. One of the only units that have it seems! Perfect for grilling everything from sausages, steaks and homemade hamburgers to the fresh fish and langostinos purchased from the local fisherman just a 10 minute walk along the beach (or inside roads if the tide is up). That totally made our trip actually. We have stayed in numerous rentals over the year and none had this feature.

Two air conditioners installed in the living room and bedroom was appreciated although we only used it once as we preferred to have the fresh ocean air blow in. However there are ceiling fans (1 in the living room, 2 in the bedroom, 1 on balcony) that are perfect so that you won't have to draw too much power using the air con if you don't wish to.

The wifi internet connection worked sufficiently for us as we are somewhat addicted to the net! You can be connected in all areas of the house including the balcony.

Hot water is on demand in the bathroom however we took mostly cold showers to refresh ourselves.

If you want to have an almost private beach to yourself just outside your window, you have it here. The pool and amenities are barely used. Good equipment at the gym.

We would love to come back again!
