Scotty Raymond purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Scotty Raymond chose Campo Alegre
The property situated in the top location in the city. Inset off the two major Highways in Panama City: Calle 50 and Via Espana. We are a block off of both main streets which is good because you do not get the constant bus traffic with our location, yet you're still in the center of everything. There is a constant flow of Taxis 24 hours a day should you need one. Best in our location you can walk to everything and really do not need a rental car at all! Also we are adjacent to 3 Huge Malls 5 minutes away by Taxi or 10 minute short walk. Hospital is only minutes away should an emergency arise. I located here because it's simply the safest location in the city due to the Casino presence. Highly policed as the Casinos do no want you robbed they want you to walk in so they can rob you. But Casinos great food super low prices like Las Vegas was 25 years ago.

Good location for business.
This is probably a good location for a short business trip or a casino visit but not the best for a vacation. The apartment has no view except for a parkade. The only place to enjoy the outdoors is in the entrance to the apartment. We never saw the front entrance as depicted in the photo.
We booked two dates here. We took a trip to Bocas so booked the place for three nights before and three nights after. On our second visit the bathrooms had not been cleaned properly. The bathroom floors still had crumbs and hair on it and there was soap residue on the sink. The rest of the place was clean but could use a coat of paint and a bit of TLC.
The absolute best thing was Gilberto (Chewy) who picked us up and dropped us off for our various airport flights. He was very professional and always on time. We also did a tour of the city and canal with him. He is very knowledgeable and personable. His English was excellent.
Note the customer had no complaints on their first visit. They returned for another stay with us only 1 week later. However they arrived at 11:30 AM while my cleaning team was still in the process of cleaning the unit. We do not allow clients to enter the condo before it is cleaned 100% , Sanitizied and Air cleaned with ozone to virtually disinfect the air in the condo. This client arrived early and insisted on checking in while the unit was being cleaned. I was out of town in the USA for 2 days so my cleaning team allowed the customer in ,while it was being cleaned! I was not here or they would not have been allowed to enter. But being kind hearted at Panama People are they did not wish to fight or aggravate the customer so they allowed them to enter before the Condo was fully ready. In truth the customer should have checked in at 2:00 PM per our policy and not at 11;45 am, simply because they wanted too. Our confirmation to everyone is clear check in time is 2;00 PM forward. Had they followed the protocol there would be no complaint at all! I think the message here is clear, in truth the the client was pleased enough to return for another stay only 1 week later. If the condo was not satisfactory they would have never returned at all.
Área y great! We felt safe.
The apartment was what we expected. Clean and safe, close to everything, metro, reastaurants and shopping.Security guard 24/7. The only thing i did not like was the way HomeAway works. Did not notify the owner about extra fees paid for service. AC is perfect. Everything in the apartment worlks properly. Gilberto Canales the taxi driver is awesome and he was waiting for us at the airport. He is a reliable and dependable person.
Super clients. Just the best. Homeaway, did great, they know how to screen and bring in the best clients. Outstanding experience and just super clients. This client is welcome back anytime. Keep up the good work Homeaway!
Lovely place in a good location
Really liked the cleanliness of the rooms and friendliness of the staff. Having a taxi meet us at the airport was an added bonus. The bed was smaller than we were used to. We were also expecting a two-bedroom apartment, but it was more like two hotel rooms.
The location was safe and close to the Metro and several places to eat.
Note : This is a two bedroom Apartment all the way. With a private entrance and stand alone, from any other units. But the 2 Bedroom/ 2 Bathroom, is a Studio/Efficiency. So it does not have a formal living room. Some 2 Bedroom apartments have a living room. We do not , but this unit is in the most desirable place in Panama City, in the center of the most expensive Hotels in Town. We are between the Marriott Hotel and the Bristol Hotel and 2 Bedrooms in those hotels would cost you triple what we charge and the hotels also will NOT have a living room. Staying with us you, get the safest most highly policed district in the country. Safe on the street no matter at 2 PM or 2 AM. Also it is very quiet here even though center city. Located right next door to the Marriott Main Hotel. You walk out our door to the City Metro (Subway) Buses 1/2 Block, Taxis 30 seconds, and all 4 Casinos right here, night life right here, 18 Restaurants right here, Starbucks out our front door. Huge Super Market Right here. You are getting a super low price for 2 bedrooms and 2 FULL bathrooms in the heartbeat of Panama City. Walk Everywhere you do not even need a taxi.
Very Clean and Confortable
This one room apartment was more like a studio or bachelor apartment - small but very functional for a short stay. A very positive point - it was centered in the finance district with shopping, restaurants and Casino at your finger tips, very safe for strolling around anytime.
Jessica, the property manager, was exceptional in helping us in every way - walking us to a nice restaurant, advising us of the area for food, etc. She also introduced us to Gilberto who was our driver/guide over our two days stay. Gilberto did a fabulous job - very informative and caring that our visit was memorable.
'Hats off' to these two wonderful people.

Wow what a super set up!!
Really great to have a REAL 2 bedrooms and 2 Full Bathrooms, just the best location. I do not typically write reviews at all unless I am angry with a place I stay or it does not meet up with what the owner says it has. But this was so good I am taking the time to recommend this place to anybody looking for a great place to stay in the best location in Panama city. Very quiet and this was a pleasant surprise since the apartment is in the virtual center of the City. Best of all the public Transportation system is perfectly functional here. We have our choice of using the new metro (lighting Fast to go anywhere) Or the Bus System only a block away in both directions to access the Air Conditioned Buses in Panama City. Also Taxis right in Front of the Unit with one coming every 15 Seconds, no waiting. Also Super Market, Pharmacies, everything right there. The unit comes with Maid Service which I completely missed when I booked it. Very impressive and every efficient. The highlight is this place has internal Laundry Service open so you don't have to wash a thing. They will do it all for you , the service girl picks up laundry at 10 and it back immaculate Clean, and folded in less than 2 Hours and left on top of the bed if you wish. Free Coffee was very nice and it was High Quality Dark Roast. So If you are considering renting a 2 Bedroom, I think you will be very pleasantly surprised with not only the Location of this unit but the superior management that happens with this owner and his superb staff.
I had a great time in Panama City! The studio was the best choice I could've made because it has the perfect location, comfort and Katerina helped me with everything I needed. I'm coming back for sure!!
Outstanding Location. One of the only truly safe districts in Panama City. All the major Casinos, banks and tourist places here, so it's highly policed. No crime here very different area than just 4 blocks out of this district. Don't fall for cheap prices to stay in: El Cangrejo, Avenue Central, Avenue Cuba, Avenue Peru, and Especially Casco Viejo. These areas have few if any police and you can be at risk in the day or night! Play it safe even if you don't stay with me , stay in our district of Area Bancaria (Bank Area) We are the heart of the tourist zone with most of the top hotels located here or within a couple of blocks.
