Our stay in the Casitas in Playa Coronado
Love Love Love Marie and Mark, they are super friendly and very welcoming. They gave us lots of tips on where to eat and explore in the area. Mark and Chuck even had a guitar jam session one afternoon!
The Casita was clean and well appointed, the bed was extremely comfortable and the pool was awesome, just steps from our door. That’s where we spent the majority of our time there. Our goal was to relax and distress and that’s exactly what we did.
As much as we enjoyed our stay, it’s important to me to give a total and complete review of our time in Panama.
The advertisement for this unit is a bit of a stretch compared to the actual casita:
- “steps from the Coronado Beach Club” more of a drive than steps
- “steps from the Pacific Ocean”, you actually have to walk a ways down the road and then down a cut off to reach the beach which is completely under water twice a day (check the tide schedule before you go).
- Advertises a range and stove but what is actually there is a toaster oven and a small plug in two burner unit.
- “gym” we never saw any gym or gym equipment
The photos show a grilling/eating/bar area that is actually only for the use of the owners, if you want to grill, they point out a grill that is down a hall on the side of the house and not a lovely area to use or eat in. It’s sort of…one side of the pool area is for guests and the other side is for the owners.
The 2nd day we were there, we reported that we had no hot water. Marie had Tony (who is awesome) come in and he fixed it. However, during our entire stay, neither of us could finish even a quick shower without running out of hot water, may need a larger unit?
We also reported that the tv/dvd player did not work and that the dishwasher was running water out into the floor. Neither was addressed while we were there. I thought they might bring a tv from one of the unoccupied units (we were the only ones there that week) but they did not, we had to stream tv on my pad although we didn’t watch much tv, just would’ve have been nice in the evenings before bed. We did not have use of the dishwasher the entire time, washed it all by hand to keep from having water in the floor.
One thing to mention are the roads in Playa Coronado. The main roads are fine but almost all of the side roads are pretty much dirt tracks. For this casita, you are fine until you turn onto Arco Iris, from there on you are pretty much off-roading. Just an unpleasant driving experience.
Thank you for the wonderful 5 * Guest Review in the Guest Memory Book, written before departure. Heartfelt memories of your time spent here. Writing...." It was exactly what you were searching for - with a pool and suite so clean, comfortable and well maintained. A perfect vacation." We appreciate you recognizing and appreciating the extra efforts put forth. Everyone involved does their best. As a result, the recent "Super Host Award"; received in appreciation by experienced travellers who arrived here as Guests. Providing Select International Vacation Rentals over the past three decades has been rewarding. Meeting those who have shared wonderful memories, reviews and recognition awarded. A Guest clientele of worldwide experienced travellers resulted in many books filled of their wonderful Memories. In this Tropical Oasis, you both shared that you found the comfort zone you both were searching for. Allowing you to rest and re-ground yourself, a place where you found peace, tranquility and relaxation for your body and soul. Things you claimed you were so desperately needing, you told us you found it here. You enjoyed yourselves - every day - floating in the pool - relaxing, reading and lounging poolside, touring the area and sampling the local culinary experiences.Apologies for any misunderstanding and confusion Trish- re your comments in your critique review, you wrote here after leaving. Your husband Chuck voiced a different view. He told us that life had been moving far too fast and he was happy to shed electronic familiarity and dependancy for a few days. He wanted to just enjoy being able to relax, read and enjoy nature, peace and natural beauty. He said everything was just wonderful as is and not to change anything. We followed his direction, as he requested. We assumed you knew. Re items you mentioned -exchanging the dvd monitor, - the shower and the dishwasher which all function fine. Several options are provided and available to choose from. The seaside location as described - the beach access entrance is a half block from the end of the street; by measure just 400 meters away. The ocean - the tides do change every 6 hours world-wide. A novelty of nature, for many who are not familiar with spending time at the seaside. Coronado is designed specifically as a private gated seaside beach resort community designed in 1941 by Roberto Eisenmann as the weekend and holiday getaway for those of means. Best Always 2 U Both
Not as advertised
Marie is a very nice and hospitable person. She offers rides to town and includes guests in happy hours or dinners. Her apartments are decorated nice and all the cooking items you might need. Beds are comfortable.
When we pulled in our hearts sank and we asked ourselves what did we get ourselves into? The property is under construction so only the back area is per the photos listed. The TV did not work, no cable and no firestick. Spa shower? no hot water for 2 weeks. Advertised ocean view when we rented. NOPE you are in the 4th tier on a bad road. Taxis charge extra. Bus a local workers van that runs till 6 .You can call a taxi with a wait, as they are not allowed in the gated area. Guards check their cars and trunks prior to entering. The beach is unique. The Jewish community owns all front houses with high sea walls. They do not want anything on the beach, therefore, there are no services ie. kayaking, surfing, paddle boarding, kite & wind Surfing are available within a 30 minute car ride. No chairs or restaurants. The club she advertises is private You can only walk this beach at lower tides as it comes up to the walls. I asked prior to booking about gym and she told me she had one. It consists of an old exercise bike in the dog kennel. Dishwasher never worked. Reported a problem with the fridge day one, she asked us to try several things which we did and nothing worked. We lost food, never had a cold beer, and she told us to use an outdoor fridge for another apartment. Never offered to pay for lost food. Never called anyone to look at it during our month stay. Bikes, there are none. We asked about renting, she said they are not available in Coronado. Air conditioning...Thankfully a prior guest alerted us to this. she told them it was cool enough with winds and never gave them the remote. I insisted on it. I also turned on other guests air that she did not give a remote to. During our stay we meet 6 wonderful couples who all shared the same experience. We ended up renting a car to get to the advertised services. Paid for a gym membership in town. Needless to say we would have rented elsewhere had we known all the services where not available. Very disappointed that the false advertising is allowed.
The first 5* posting review on file was lovely; written before your departure. Thank you. It appears now you feel your expectations were not met and you were disappointed. Sorry. NPD is challenging. The entire staff and other Guests did their best.
Site writeup and pictures of the Guest suites and Guest areas posted, are exactly as received. Intermittent service matter comments and accusations were responded to directly in other review posts. Pool, Terrace, Guest Areas on the property are complete as shown. Final update is in the courtyard parking area.
Playa Coronado does not cater to those familiar with tourist beach hotel environments. There are no hotels in Coronado or on the beaches permitted. Coronado is a private quality beach community. Homes are designed for those to enjoy privacy in a prestige beach environment and neighbourhood. Slower pace of life, less stress environment.
You state you did not enjoy that experience and wrote reviews that appear to discriminate. Comments made, appear on attack; directed at chosen specific religious sectors, beliefs, residents and their lifestyle. Not appropriate. In this country, Panama, comments such as these are viewed as offensive and litigious.
In Spanish." Coronado" means Panama's Crowned Jewel. As you per your comments, The " Panama Hampton's " area and amenities it offers are not for you. Interpretation is a personal matter. Nothing stated or shown advertised on listing is false. Most welcome and appreciate Playa Coronado, the lifestyle and the amenities.They strive to spend time here in this private oasis. Hotel-style seekers are the minority.
Not sure where confusion arose.
The listing clearly states " Enjoy Promo Pricing ..This beach property is undergoing a full re-model and now in the final stages. Enjoy the re-model promotion with all new amenities. Enjoy new Guest Areas - Exactly as shown in the pictures. An original Coronado beach house, located within the most desired beachfront neighbourhood in Playa Coronado and the entire Panama Pacific Beach area. Fabulous Oceanside Location & Luxury Accommodations - This New Coronado Vacation Rental is hidden away at the quiet end of Coronado. A private gated Coronado Beach House, with Hotel Quality & Comfort, nestled aside "Millionaire's Row " the famous oceanfront premier world-class beach villas and estates in Playa Coronado, Panama's Crowned Jewel.

Perfect stay in Coronado
Stayed two weeks during February. Arrived in Coronado via bus and Marie was there there to pick us up and we where able to purchase groceries before departing for her lovely home. We had selected the suite with the king bed,very comfy, and we were very impressed with the unit. Very clean, tons of room, great bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. We prepared most meals during our stay. This suite had its own patio including a BBQ. We had all of our meals outdoors, no bugs, and there where also lounge chairs and a hammock. The pool was only steps away and this was certainly the heart of the home and where we spent most of our time. Beautiful 45 ft pool with relaxing waterfall, and several lounging areas with plenty of shaded areas if you prefer. Wonderful to finish the evening with a glass of vino and enjoy the evening pool lighting.
The large laundry room was much used and appreciated during our stay.
The beach is about a 6 minute walk and was a great place for our morning excercise. You could walk for miles. Got pretty hot about 11 so back to the awesome pool.
Our hosts Marie and Mark could not have been more helpful. Very knowledgable about the area and Panama in general. We did have a couple of concerns during our stay but these issues where dealt with immediately. We really felt at home here. Mucho Gracias.
Would certainly stay here again and would highly recommend this property to others.
Glen ..Thank you. It was wonderful meeting you both . We so enjoyed your company ...your time was just all too short. It was wonderful to see you and Colleen both enjoying yourselves every day - the power walks, beach walks, quiet time poolside, BBQ's, candle light dinners on the terrace.
Everyone enjoyed your company. Please keep in touch.
We look forward to your next trip to Panama and your return to stay the Coronado Beach House. MM
We had a great 2 months in Panama! We stayed in the poolside apartment which was very comfortable, clean and well equipped with everything we needed. Marie and Mark were excellent hosts and provided very helpful info on where to visit in Panama. They were very quick to respond to any issue that came up with the rental property when it was brought to their attention. We loved walking on the beach every morning and spent many relaxing hours by the pool which is a great spot. The private quiet location was exactly what we were looking for, we will definitely return.
W & R is was wonderful having you both here. We watched you both settle in quickly and thoroughly enjoy every day in our Panama Tropical Oasis - Paradise - where it is summer every day. Here, where it is quiet and comfortable - away from the crowds and daily life stressors ..swimming, reading and relaxing, just what one needs for optimum healthy lifestyle - all hidden away here at the Pacific Seaside in Coronado Beach on Panama's Gold Coast. Being in the poolside suite and with just a few steps to the beach you have the best of every comfort.
You made the beach your daily venture outside the private compound - to walk the beach and neighbourhood, wiggle your toes in the silver sand, hunt seashells and sea glass and do the beach Tiki Bar and fish market for their daily catch of fresh fish and shrimp. Warren enjoyed cooking in the outdoor kitchen and BBQ poolside. ..all comforts of home.
Using this as your home base - you took a few days here and there to adventure out and check out the glorious countryside and the Pacific Islands...Always returning to the warm sunny beach to re-group and relax once again. Two months was just too short, time passed all too quickly. ..maybe 3 or 4 months next time ?
W & R ....We thoroughly enjoyed your company and we look forward to your next trip here to Panama for another dose of Vitamin Sea.
Perfect location for sun and relaxation
We stayed at this beach getaway for 10 days in January 2017 and it fulfilled our desire for R&R perfectly. Marie and Mark were very good hosts and made us feel very welcomed and at home. We spent the majority of each day just laying by the pool and soaking up the sunshine. The beach was also less than five minutes walk from the casita.
The property is well situated in Coronado, a community that is well developed with beautiful homes, plenty of western-style restaurants to choose from, and shopping amenities close by. It was definitely the best community to stay in to enjoy the beautiful beaches in the area.
We thoroughly enjoyed having you both here- You were awesome !
Hurry back !
Evoking property: owners are still working to upgrade it.
Lovely pool and deck area out back w hammock and lounges in the water. Great place to chill. A little rough looking in the front( dirt driveway; yard is for parking, caged dogs.)
Shower in my room wasn't working-- no advance notice of this. Was offered outdoor pool shower or to use another guest's bathroom when they were out. Also, no AC in my room; 3 fans helped but weren't enough. Other guest rooms did have AC -- so check before booking.
Cynthia. Thank you for taking the time to write this second review. Your first Guest Review, that you penned before leaving us was beautiful, you shared the following message for us and others. " Thank you for creating this wonderful hidden gem - no ..make that Oasis -for relaxing, escaping and indulging. It was a wonderful stay. Cynthia. "
Interpretation is individual. Site photos shown are exactly as one finds here in the Guest areas. It was wonderful to see you relax and enjoy yourself in this little piece of Paradise...a tropical oasis, where you spent hours lounging by the pool, reading, swimming, sharing stories and laughter with the other Guests. All world travelers who penned Guest Reviews saying
" the pool area is right out of a Better Homes Magazine or better yet .. a 5* Hotel. Everything was just as advertised and more..all newly renovated and the bed so comfy ..I have had some of my best sleeps in recent memory. One of the most relaxing and comfortable places I have ever stayed at...ever ! " L & L. Canada
Arriving as you did on New Years Day for 2 nights, after a few days on the road in holiday traffic, how relaxed you quickly became and what a pleasure it was to have you to see you enjoying yourself. Spending time under the Bohio and around the pool area.....brought many smiles. It is pleasing to provide a place where one finds peace, relaxation and happiness... to be able to relax, unwind and renew their personal energy. You found it here. Your arrival coincided with Panama National Holidays. Unfortunately your poolside suite en-suite spa shower, without notice, developed a plumbing leak, just hours prior to your arrival. The timing was unfortunate and rendered it not repairable due to the holidays; repairs being done that same week. Cynthia, acclimating to the local weather here does take time. That suite has multiple windows and patio doors, 3 fans, we added a 4th for you. We did out best to provide options for your comfort. A new a/c system has since been installed.
Guest Reviews include appreciation " The pool and pool deck area are what makes this place. We practically lived in the pool." " Can we take this outdoor Paradise home ? " "Your - seaside tropical oasis with 24/7 outdoor living was awesome, it felt so good here and did not want to leave ". Reviews like these are the best compliments.They bring a smile and make all the effort worthwhile .
Cynthia, a pleasure to meet you.
Best Always. MJ
