“Wonderful experience in Panama”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2014

What a wonderful experience. The apartment is spacious and accommodated the 6 of us very well. The location is excellent and the beach simply amazing. The back sand sparkles like diamonds. I can honestly say that I have never spent so much time in the water as we did on this beach. The whole gang of us was in the water from 3-4 hours uninterrupted. The ocean is warm and except for the rip tides on 2 days it was most inviting and offering no reasons to get out. We also travelled to the Caribbean side to La Isla Grande but the beaches we saw do not even compare to Gorgona. It is usually very empty and at max has 8 people on it on weekends. Unbeatable. Technically our visit was during the rainy season/low but the rain was a complete no show. When it did briefly rain it only lasted minutes. Panamanian roads are not well sign posted, we made it to our destination by following an off line GPS map. The entry to Nueva Gorgona is easily missed however after a day or 2 we knew all the roads and found our way very easily. A big thank to Carlo for his assistance and local knowledge and the Guanabana!

“Very relaxing on beautiful beach”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2014

What a great trip to Panama with a relaxing week at Tom & Karen's condo in Gorgona. The three-bedroom unit was lovely with all the amenities of home: washer/dryer, dishwasher, coffeemaker, blender - all the fixings for a proper beach vacation. Satellite television, internet access and even a satellite phone to call family and friends at home for free! The balcony was our favorite spot for every meal with a view of the ocean, the bay and the mountains. Playa Serna, the condo complex, was well maintained with a beautiful pool, game room with ping pong and foosball, security at both the beach and parking garage and an amazing beach! Wow! The combination of black and beige sand made it a living etch-a-sketch! We spent hours walking on the beach, throwing the football and looking for shells and sea glass. The beach is remote - You will not have to fight for a spot to sunbathe - but a short drive away is Coronado with grocery stores and restaurants. Tom provided a fantastic "care packet" with driving directions and tips for a great stay. Please note: Driving directions are difficult since there are few named roads/street addresses. I have a new appreciation for house numbers. But his directions were very good. In addition to Coronado, we ventured to ElValle, a mountain town, for hiking, zip lining and trip to a nature preserve. It was wonderful, even though the drive was a little harrowing. We didn't pack clubs, but there were several golf courses that were also nearby. This condo is a great value and lovely break! I'd go again in a minute.

“A Nice Slice Of Heaven”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2013

We just returned from spending the month of February in Gorgona. Tom and Karen have this 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo prepared with everything. The kitchen is equipped with all you need and the space was great for the 4 of us. Wi-fi was easy and having access to free long distance in North america and a great Weber bbq. The view from the balcony overlooking the ocean on one side and the mountains and fishing village was great. We met wonderful people on our morning walks -an incredible beach and only a 10 minute walk to the fishing village for a fresh catch of sea bass. Just a few minutes to walk to the local sports bar, La Ruina - sit at the bar - and the bus stop is right across the street - 30 cents to the main road! Cabs were easy - the guard would call for us or you can set up the cell phone Tom and Karen have available and for $3. we drove into Coronado with 3 supermarkets - Super 99, the The Rey and and the El Machetazo - best produce We took a bus from the main road into the albrook Mall in Panama City - $2.50. Fyi - when you return, book your ticket in the Mall for Santa Clara and get off at Gorgona - you will need to buy a 'superpass card'' for $1.50 as well, not just the bus tickets. If you need help - Tom and Karen have a wonderful property manager, Carlo - he was there for us, when one of our companions forgot her insulin! There is also a new clinic in Coronado - the Doctor speaks English - $20 to see him! They have a very good dentist in Coronado close to Super 99. Day trip - definitely El Vallee - cooler - great market and busy on a Sunday. Grab Oscar for a tour of the Old City and the Canal - he picked us up at the airport - great English and sense of humour and a wealth of info. Great restraunts and the local paper is now on-line for the area. Hasta la próxima vez ... gracias Lynne, Bryan, Pat and Janet - Ontario

“Tropical Getaway”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2012

This was a great location! Tom & Karen have everything organized so that you have little to worry about on your stay. We opened up the windows and had a great cross-breeze in the condo every evening. We spent several days just relaxing poolside or walking along the beach. Gorgona is also a good central place to base out of for great day trips. We went to El Valle a few times, enjoying the local flavor along with Ziplining through the mountain rain forest canopy and horseback riding up the mountains. We also found new beaches with great waves up past Pedasi. Chitre is a nice little city with lots of nice shopping. Also, there are new National Parks opening up past Penonome and a historical park at El Cano. We find new and exciting things to do every time we go to Panama. Finding a new condo to stay at on the beach just makes our expectations for next years vacation even higher.

“Fun for the whole family.”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2010

Tom, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the condo. The views from the balcony were spectacular and everything we needed was there at the property. We spent almost every afternoon down at the pool or on the beach. That is one of the nicest beaches I have ever been to. We found the furnishings to be very warm and comfortable and the three bedrooms and two baths gave us all the room we needed for us and the kids. We were pleasantly surprised to find so many stores and restaurants within a short distance from the property. The people at the property were very professional and helpful with directions and pointing out some places to visit while were there. We will be sure to get in contact with you before our next visit. Thank you so much and we will be sure to tell our friends about our experiences there and about the condo. Sincerely, Al audette
