My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and were completely blown away by the beauty and serenity of this place. It is just as depicted in the advertisement, if not better! The directions were pretty straightforward and we found the place without a hitch. The property and grounds were beautifully maintained and landscaped. The house was brand new, sparkling clean, and tastefully decorated. The fully equipped, modern kitchen was great, with new appliances, dishes, cookware, and utensils. We really enjoyed the satellite/big plasma tv and the big comfy leather couches for snuggling up. The huge pool was always clean and we pretty much had it all to ourselves the entire time. They have aqua-fit classes 3 mornings a week, a classic rock bar (not sure what days its open), and were just in the process of putting the final touches on a great new onsite gym. Nancy and John, the property managers were extremely friendly and gracious and were able to provide some good insight as to where to go grocery shopping and what nearby beaches were the best to go to. No problem if you don't speak a word of Spanish, they are English speakers. There is an El Rey and Super 99 about 10 minutes away, with lots of local convenience stores, restaraunts, and places to buy local crafts along the way. I would highly recommend going here with a car, as it is about a 40 minute drive outside of Panama city, and is situated in a rural country sort of setting and exploring and siteseeing in the area will be much easier. However, you can get here by public bus for about $4 per person or a taxi for around $25 flat (Make sure to negotiate with the driver first!). The beaches are not within walking distance, but they were really beautiful, with pristine white sand and hardly anyone around. It was a really nice escape for us from the hectic, congested city and we definately want to go back again. I wouldnt recommend this place for the party hearty or those looking for the typical all inclusive large scale resort type of thing. And it might be a little too luxurious for the typical backpacker. But, if you are looking for a relaxing, romantic getaway, with lots of privacy and comfort, this is where to go.
