Recent El Valle de Anton (Crater Valley) reviews

  • Wonderful place for a family vacation!

    "We decided to book a last minute mini-family vacation and the owner was able to accommodate us. She responded promptly and we were able to easily make payment and access the apartment. The apartment was floor to ceiling with windows, giving breath-taking views of the ocean, mountains, and sunset. There was plenty to do as a family, including 2 beautiful pools and private beaches. The apartment contained everything we needed during our stay and various groceries stores were nearby. We would definitely recommend!"

  • What a lovely place!

    "This review is a little late (we visited in July 2016) and actually for a different unit than this one. We stayed on the floor above in the recently finished "Honeymoon Suite". And it was way above expectations! The suite took up half of that floor with panoramic views of the ocean from wrap-around floor to ceiling windows. King size bed, large flat screen TV, full kitchen with granite countertops, beautifully appointed bath also with granite countertops and an outdoor shower on the balcony with amazing ocean views. The whole suite has the WOW factor! The white sand beach goes forever in both directions and for four days it was only us and a neighbor's dog walking on the beach. On the weekend a few (very few) locals came out to swim. There are alot of underwater rocks that are visible at low tide so the swimming is better up the beach a little ways. But beachcombing for shells and the array of wildlife in the tidal pools is awesome. Sunsets from the balcony were beautiful. Transfer from and back to the airport is available and recommended unless you have experience navigating the traffic in Panama City. After that a rental car from the agency in Coronado is also recommended. There is no close by restaurant but there is a well stocked supermarket in Coronado and several good restaurants in the vicinity. We enjoyed two seaside restaurants on two different beaches as well as a seafood restaurant on the main highway. I also recommend the short drive inland to El Valle. An Italian restaurant there, El Bruschetta, is excellent. Information on all this is thoughtfully given when you make a reservation. We absolutely loved staying at Suites on the Beach and highly recommend the accommodations, the locale & scenery, the ease of booking, and the hospitality shown us."

  • Amazing Ocean Front Property!

    "The ocean and mountain panoramic views from this condo unit are absolutely stunning. We arrived to an immaculate and very well maintained place to call home. Everything was well stocked and very clean and comfortable. Kitchen was awesome! Chris and Maureen were great to work with. The building and staff at Playa Serena do an outstanding job. The Grounds are kept spotless and secure. The local property manager went above and beyond to make sure that everything was perfect for our stay. This central location is great as a home base while traveling Panama. Especially if you are staying long term. It is very close to the city and the airport. What a wonderful stay, what a beautiful place!"

  • Beachfront oasis

    "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."
