Perfect Beach

  • 4 of 5

If you love quiet strolls on the beach this is a perfect place. Playa Destiladeros is beautiful and, as attested to by other visitors to this condo, virtually private! An added bonus is the presence of an amazing restaurant less than a 5-min walk. The chef at Terry Desti is extremely talented and the staff very friendly. The drive into Pedasi is about 15 minutes and once there you have a choice of several good restaurants (we recommend Tortuga’s, Bull Beach, and 7 Mares). Our favorite for ceviche was Pedasianno (probably spelled wrong, but it's at edge of town right down from the Real Estate office). There's good bread at The Bakery and Casita Margarita serves breakfast every day. There are at least 2 markets in town. If you like surfing the drive to Playa Venao is about 40 mins and there are a couple of good restaurants/bars (we liked Ristorante El Panama). We were here for almost 5 weeks. The atmosphere at Ocean Lofts is friendly and relaxed and Loft 9 suited our needs just fine. The kitchen is well supplied and having a washer and dryer was a plus.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

Loft 9 is idyllic with 4 balconies and everything you need for a great vacation. The washer/dryer is an added bonus. Clean and spacious. Los Destilerados Beach is very beautiful, sandy, few rocks. The most people we ever counted on this beach was 9! The caretaker, Mark met us and was most helpful with everything. If you want a real, true Panama vacation this is for you. 15 minutes from town but far away from it all. Beautiful landscaping as well. The owners replied swiftly to our enquiries and gave us detailed directions from Panama City. Thank you Liv and Regina!

Great house, walking distance to the beach

  • 4 of 5

The loft was perfect: very clean, complete appliances , comfy beds, beautiful and spacious bathrooms, fast wifi. The communication with the owners was excellent, and Mark, the person who received us, was amazing. The loft itself is a VRBO 5 star.

My only feedback is about the condo, it was Ok and had some opportunities, for example the lawn has not been mowed in a long time, and the security guard was not present 50% of the time (they were very kind though).

Our plan was to spend 100% of the day on the beach, so the loft was perfect for our needs. Special thanks to Mark; I forgot my speakers in the loft and was very kind helping me recover them.

Comfortable, well equiped and properly finished two story loft walking distance from the beach.

  • 4 of 5

A great place to stay near Pedasi area, after the village and near the beaches. We spend three nights during Holly Week and had a great time, windy and sunny Panama still during this time of the year. Visited the near beaches but definitively the best is this one and Veano beach 20 minutes away from here. Find couple restaurants in the area, specially near Pedasi village. Great for a relaxing vacation near the sea. The loft is properly equiped and you can easily cook with the items provided. The finishing of the loft is very nice, with wooden and granite countertops in the kitchen, whole granite solid rock sinks, wooden closets and furniture in very good shape. Two queen beds properly equiped as well, comfortable matresses and no problem with sheets, pillows and enough towels around. Will return on July for sure.

Another beautiful day in paradise

  • 5 of 5

"Good morning, in another beautiful day in paradise" was my daily greeting to my family each morning during our two week stay. Our trip was a vacation of a life time for us mid westerners and our stay was delightful. Being right next to the ocean beach was fabulous. And as early risers, my husband and I especially enjoyed the second story verandas for sipping coffee, watching the sun rise and bird watching. During the intensity of the mid-day sun we enjoyed lounging in the shade of the front porch as the cool breeze kept us comfortable. The swimming pool area overlooking the beach with its fragrance of flowering trees, colorful native birds flying about and areas of filtered sunlight to prevent sun burn, was my favorite place to relax. We especially enjoyed the interactions we had with the other vacationing occupants and the local residence who worked and maintained the facilities within this small community.

Except for a few minor inadequacies that the facilities manager resolve quickly and the accommodations being a bit tight for five people, we were extremely happy with our experience.

Nice Location BUT....

  • 3 of 5

The BUT in the title is totally about the accmodations and the quality of the furnishings within the unit we rented. First let me say that the area and location of the villa are excellent for a nice get away. The unit itself is nicely decorated however, when you pay the rates listed you expect that you will be able to relax and recharge overnight. This was not the case during our stay. The beds in the unit were not acceptable by any means. We had read about hard mattresses in prior reviews and took a pillow top cover with us. However this did not help at all.

In addition to the beds being uncomfortable the Air Conditioners do not cool the unit enough to enjoy a restful sleep. waking up with beads of sweat on your body is totally unacceptable at the price point charged.

We alerted the property manager after our first night and we were told that there was nothing she could do. We emailed the owner numerous times and we received nice replies that they were we sorry that the property manager could not help us.

We live in Panama for a portion of the year and understand the tropics and the tempature. The complex that this unit is built in does not allow any breeze to enter the home so the A/C is critical to your comfort especially at night when you are trying to recharge from a fun filled day exploring the area.

The unit is very nice but its in need of some upgrades to continue its 5 Star status.
