The best hosts in Panama, bar none!
The property is nice. It is clean, inviting, and has several things to do. There are weekend activities (Thursday-Sunday), volleyball on the beach, 6 pools, an old but functional mini-putt course (bring your own putter and ball), a game room, restaurant/bar, spa, gym, pool table, and kid's area. They are all clean, but not updated recently. The unit is very nice, has very hot water, a small washer/dryer, BBQ, and a very nice view. Most importantly, the hosts (Claudia and her husband) were amazing. They went out of their way multiple times to help us (to book a side trip, loaned us a putter, and drove our passports to us at the hotel because we forgot). They were very generous and SOOOOOO helpful. I can't say enough good things about them. The beach is not the greatest by Caribbean standards, but is clean and fairly well-kept and not overcrowded. We met lots of great EXPATS and some friendly locals at the resort. If you are visiting Panama, you must know that the beaches are not powder white sandy beaches lined with palm trees. The mountain view in the front is terrific too. I very much preferred this over the resort we stayed at in Coronado.
Amazing view and comfortable home!
My family and I enjoyed our stay at Bahia, it was very comfortable with all the amenities. The property is amazing with plenty for the kids to do, the beach is beautiful and you can walk far in both directions finding tide pools and swirling black sand. The condo has comfortable bedrooms and isn't cluttered or overly decorated. The balcony has plenty of room for everyone to sit, relax and enjoy the breathtaking view! We hope to come back again one day!
Four of us stayed in Claudia's wonderful condo from April 9 to the 16. It is exactly as described in the Web site. What it can't describe is the breathtaking views from the balcony. We actually spent most of our time on the balcony. The comfortable outdoor furniture and cooling breeze made it a very appealing place for morning coffee and after dinner drinks. The entire apartment was set up for comfort including a washing machine and dryer as well as a barbeque which we used quite regularily. The master bedroom was spacious and has an ensuite bathroom and walk in closet. As well there are patio doors that open onto the balcony. The spare bedroom was adequate with a double bed on the bottom and a bunk bed on top. The booking process went very smoothly even though I made a mistake while booking, Claudia quickly fixed the problem. We did run into a couple of other small issues which Claudia fixed or tried to fix immediately. A couple of suggestions would be to have directions on working the television as well as some information on areas of interest and restaurants around Gorgona and Coronado. Also it would be nice to have an extra chair in the living room for seating. We just brought in one of the chairs from the balcony.
The pools and grounds at the condo were kept very clean and pleasing to the eyes. The staff were very friendly and since we could not speak Spanish they would find someone who could.
The Tiki bar just outside the condo has great food and a lively atmosphere. And yet the noise could not be heard from the condo. It is owned by two American expats, Cat was one of the women and unfortunately I cannot remember the others name. But the relationship they had with the staff and customers was an indication on just how great the place was. They even managed to find us a hockey game on their television. On another note, we walked every day down the beach in both directions. There is a fishing village not far from the condo and we heard you could buy fresh fish if you were up early enough. We felt very safe in the area and discovered another wonderful restaurant called La ruina, just down the road. Again a great place to eat and meet both Panamanians and expats. It is owned by an American expat and his Panamanian wife.
Overall we had a wonderful experience and I highly recommend staying here. Thank you Claudia for sharing your place with us
Bahia in Gorgona
My husband and I Just got back from 33 days at Claudia's condo and we could have stayed longer. Claudias response time was excellent. My daughter, her husband and 2 babies came down for 1 week. Our grand daughter had lots of fun especially in the Play Room. The condo was comfortable and kitchen had everything we needed in including a toaster oven that was great to warm up empanadas. Besides the 3 eating facilities on the property It's walking distance to 3 local restaurants and mini grocery store. We had great weather but we had a number of days where it was very windy but everyone said it would be too hot without the wind. As far as the beach goes you could walk for miles during low tide. There were only a few days that the waves were too big for me to go swimming as I'm not a great swimmer. It's very quite Monday-Thursday and more active on the weekend when the Tiki Bar is open, a popular spot and nice to have the music on the beach.
Exceeded our expectations!
wife and I stayed at the Condo for 3 weeks, Jan 10 through Jan 31, 2015. Claudia couldn't have been more responsive and helpful. The Condo is self is large, with lots of room. It is a corner, floor through apartment so windows on 3 sides. Perfect cross ventilation. Very good A/C. The bed and furniture was actually comfortable. TV and WiFi worked great. Kitchen was terrific with lots of cooking and preparing equipment. The unit was spotless when we arrived, including all three bathrooms. Under ground parking so you never have to go into a hot car. You do need a car in Gorgona.
The building is very secure, pools very well maintained and always clean. Easy beach access. The restaurant (Blue Water Cafe) next to the pool was some of the best food we have had in Panama. This was our 3rd trip to Panama and our best. Would recommend this Condo without hesitation!
Dec 27/14 - Jan 04/15 Stay at Gorgona Beach
Claudia was helpful and easy to communicate with. The place was as advertised and was very clean. The pools were great and the beach was right in front of the suite. The New Years party at the common area was great and it went until the wee hours of the morning. The weather was very sunny and hot. We even walked from the condo to Coronado - once. We took a cab back. There are 3 large supermarkets nearby. The onsite snack bar was handy. We didn't get to try the onsite restaurant. There was parking for our rental car. The in-suite WIFI worked great.
