3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 2 to 6 - FREE phone calling to U.S./Canada
This 3 bedroom 2 bath condo located on beautiful Playa Serena Beach is part of Playa Serena Resort gated beachfront community. Our beachfront connects directly to Coronado Beach. This beautiful condo isn't a short drive to the beach or a short walk to the beach, this luxurious, fully equipped condo is ON the beach. You have several miles of beachfront in each directon; great for walking/running/sunning..... just enjoying. From the patio of this 19th floor condo you have a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean and a spectacular mountain view as well. The condo is new with all the comforts you could possibly need; Totally stocked and equipped kitchen with all appliances, Split A/C units in the living room and each bedroom, flat screen TVs in the living room and each bedroom, WiFi throughout condo, pool, equipped exercise room. With the wonderful ocean breezes, we seldom use the A/C units.
FREE phone calls. There is a phone in the living room. You can make and receive phone calls FREE from the USA and Canada. You will also have the use of a Panama cell phone for local calls. The resort of Playa Serena is a very friendly place to spend your days and evenings. We just love the views from the patio from early morning to late evening. The weather in this location is just so nice that we seldom close the patio doors and always eat outside and enjoy the mountain and ocean views from the 19th floor patio.
Great Condo!! Great View!!
Booked this condo through TripAdvisor for first week of April. The owner Tom was very helpful with his communications and had everything you needed in there. The driver he set us up with was TRULY a gem (Oscar Rodriguez), that spoke excellent english and I can't praise him enough as he was the highlight of the entire trip!! The condo was perfect as we all had our own rooms with comfy beds and top notch air conditioning & closet space. The balcony, a bit on the small size, had great views in either direction. The condo is close enough to a little market that you can walk. The condo building next door had a restaurant, while the food was just OK (edible) and the waiter/waitresses spoke little to no English, the view is great (right over beach). We spent some hours on the beach where the guy working there would get a couple lounges or chairs for us (I would get a couple more of those cushions for the condo as the lounges were pretty hard without cushions). The beach was empty for the most part & very nice to just sit and watch the various water birds and the waves crashing!! We had Oscar take us for the day to see the jungle (hummingbird sanctuary & monkeys), saw a huge container ship come through the new section of the Canal, Gatun Lake (had a closer encounter with a couple capuchin monkeys, and then late lunch/early dinner in Casco Viejo (Casablanca). I could have spent at least half the day there walking through the narrow streets and admiring the restored homes & restoration process of others... It was a very long day but Oscar went above & beyond fantastic customer service!! He was very knowledgeable!! For local driving Oscar even set us up with a local guy for going out to dinners named Tony Gomez (his English was a bit rough) who was very nice & prompt!! Thank God Tom had a pre-paid cell phone in the condo because AT&T apparently never updated my international calling portion of my service. We didn't even use the AC in the living room as the WIND on the 19th floor is intense and refreshing!! All in all it was a great time - Condo is highly recommendable... Thank you again Tom!!
Awesome Condo in Playa Serna, Coronado Panama
From the minute we arrived at Tom and Karen's condo, we loved it. Situated on the 19th floor with a deck that gave us lots of shade and cool breezes this condo was all you need. The condo was fully appointed with ample furniture, good TV and Netflix, free phone calls to Canada, great kitchen dishes, utensils, and cooking pots and pans. The fridge made ice and was good size. We didn't need to bring a thing. Even spices were well stocked. There are 3 good sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Good showers. We loved the buildings common area and especially enjoyed sitting on the beach watching the sun set each day. This was the perfect getaway and we would recommend staying at Tom and Karen's condo to anyone. This condo gets a '2 Thumbs Up'! It was the perfect home away from home. Thanks for allowing us to rent your condo Tom/Karen.
A Great Place To Stay
Playa Serena Delight
Playa Serena, Gorgona, Panama, Awesome
Perfect Condo For All Of Our Needs
My husband and I spent a week in Panama and stayed this wonderful condo. The condo is absolutely perfect! All utilities you can ask for--washer/dryer, full kitchen, spacious living area, balconies, beautiful views, fitness area, security gate and steps away from the pool or beach. I had so many questions about Panama and Tom would always respond right away with so much helpful information. He made things so easy for us. We had a great time and hope to go back again!
Nice condo. Nice staff and quite helpful. All amenities, including high speed wireless internet. Gorgeous views and comfortable breezes of the Pacific. Had the best sleep in months our first night. So much to do in the vicinity. Ziplining in El Valle was a highlight. Nearby town of Coronado has most anything you need. We went in the "rainy season" which meant it was sunny and summer-like but with perhaps 2 days of the week having a short shower. We booked this condo without any fuss or administrative burdens. Tom was a treasure trove of information and easy to deal with. He was always prompt to respond to e-mail queries. One week was not enough. This condo has us seriously considering buying one ourselves.
Exceptional Place To Stay
Fantastic Views And Super Comfortable
This is a beautiful condo with all the amenities you could wish for. The views from the balcony are amazing and the beach is right outside your door. Tom the owner was very helpful and quick with responses to my questions. I would definitely rent this condo if it were available should I ever return to Panama and would most definitely recommend it to others.
A Nice Vacation Rental
Has everything you can think of. It's truly a home away from home. Right on the beach. Very well kept and maintained. The owners did an outstanding job with the place.
Ideally Located, Extremely Comfortable, A Gem
We almost made a mistake by booking a condo in Panama City, don't do it. This condo is ideally located for visiting all of Panama including the City, Gamboa, the Miraflores locks, El Valle and more with a rental car. Nearby Coronado has great supermarkets for your grocery supplies. Highly recommended is a deluxe restaurant in El Valle called La Casa de Lordes - make a internet reservation ahead of your visit, you will not regret your visit there, and, tie it into a visit to the Sunday market. A must visit is the Fish Market and Historic area in Panama City. We spent a night at the Rainforest Resort and enjoyed the Gatun Lake Expedition (offered through the Resort), the Miraflores Locks (20 minutes from the Resort) and booked a full day tour of Barro Colorado through the special Smithsonian program. The owners of the condo provide you will great directions and other information to make your stay memorable. Book it now!
A Really Nice Place To Spand Time
This is a very nice place to stay with all the comforts of home. The owners are very accommodating and have not forgotten anything that needs to be there to make the stay memorable. They have the most impressive list of details of the area, emergency numbers, grocery stores, ect. that I have ever seen. If you need to know about something, it will be in the welcome letter. We live in the area but rented here because of the 3 bedrooms to accommodate family from the USA. Our children and grandchild were very happy with the unit and the pool as well. Thank you so much Tom & Karen for a wonderful stay. Mick & Denise
Paradise In Panama
We rented this lovely condo for vacation and our first trip to Panama to see if we would want to consider retiring in Panama. Oh, what a beautiful place we found Panama to be and the condo had EVERYTHING you needed. Spacious rooms, a beautiful view of the mountains and the ocean. Tom had provided every possible piece of information , from driving directions, to where to eat, shop and visit. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone wishing to travel to Panama and enjoy this beautiful country. We are already planning our next trip back, and Panama is definitely a major consideration for our upcoming retirement. You can't go wrong with Plya Serena 19D. If you go be sure to eat at the "Rincon Catracha" , this restaurant is as local as you can get, but the meals are outstanding. You literally eat on the homes front porch, I guarantee you will have one of the best meals you have ever had, and the price isn't bad either. My, wife, one of our daughters and myself had a three course meal, several drinks and awesome service and our bill was $26 total. Also walk to the local fish market and get fresh seafood for really great prices. I got 18 shrimp as big as my hand and 3 corvina(sea bass) and langostine for $30. There is a great pool, beach access and the most wonderful salt and pepper sand beach. The Panama Canal and El Valle de Anton are great day trips and easy to get to from the condo. Thanks Tom and Karen for sharing your condo.,
We had a wonderful week in Panama and at the Condo with our 4 kids ages 13-21. The place was meticulously clean, comfortable and welcoming. Everything I could think of was there - boogie boards, blow dryer, scotch tape, baggies, and wraps, all cooking supplies, and much much more. Tons of towels, pillows, etc. Views were gorgeous from all sides. We walked out the back door of the building each afternoon to the pool and then down some steps to the beautiful beach where we watched the sunset each night. New Year's Eve - and beyond- fireworks were amazing. Security on both sides of the building was 24 hrs - I never ever felt unsafe. We spent most of each day touring within an hour of the condo - and had fun filled days, ziplining, boating to monkey island, snorkling, hiking in rainforests, near waterfalls, seeing the Canal museum, exploring downtown Panama City and more. Great vacation and family time!
Slice Of Paradise
Slice Of Paradise
To start off I would give this Condo Rental a five star rating. My wife and I stayed at this condo in Neuva Gorgona, which is located right on the beach for the month of Feb 2016. The Condo location and surrounding area were as wonderful and beautiful as it gets in Panama. The beach was soft white and black sand with very few rocks or seashells to bother your feet as you walked the long stretch of beach in either direction with your feet in or out of the ocean. Waking up in the morning to have coffee on the large balcony to hear the ocean waves crashing onto the shore and feeling the warm breezes wafting through the air with the smell of the ocean made it feel serene and calm every day. This was one of my greatest pleasures in the early morning hours.The view from the balcony was breath taking. The condo was equipped with everything you need to eat in if you so desired, but the restaurants in the area and in Coronado, a 15 minute car or cab ride away, were spectacular. The three bedrooms were all equiped with queen beds with very comfortable foam matresses, the linens and towels provided were also very nice. The TV's were newer flat screen models and had HDMI access. The local supermarkets were full of name brand products and reasonably priced but the best buy for local fruits and vegetables were the road side stands. The staff at Playa Serena was all very friendly, and although most did not speak English very well they would always wave and say ola with a smile. Our month stay there seemed way too short as we were just getting used to the place when we had to pack up and come home to Windsor Ontario Canada. I would go back without hesitation, if it is available. Tim & Cathie
