The patio has stunning views of the ocean in one direction and the distant mountains in the other direction.
You can see and hear the surf hitting the beach from the patio of the condo. Since you can hear the surf from all 3 bedrooms the sounds of the surf will lull you to sleep each night.

We have stayed at some rentals that just were not what they advertised. You will have my email address (and there is very good high speed internet at the condo) and my cell phone number in the US. You can email or call me if you have any problems.
There are no 'hidden' costs in the rental amount we give you, i.e., taxes, linen service, taxes,etc. All costs are seen by you up-front before you put a deposit on the condo.
We really love it in Panama and we really love Playa Serena and the beach and surrounding area and we're sure that you will love it also.

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 - girls - hand.made jewellery @ isle where Chevalier is located at end.. Try to break your money into $20 dollar bills - you have to produced your passport for anything $50 and over in the grocery store. 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 even have a very good dentist in Coronado close to Super 99. Don't rent a car in Panama City - yikes - not a place you want to drive - construction!! Would suggest if you do, go to the De Cameron and rent one - 1/2 hr away - and drop it off before the day you leave and definitely get a cab to the airport - 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. There are great restraunts and the local paper is now on-line for Coronado/area. Take lots of sunscreen - it's hot but a cool place to stay! hasta la prÃ³xima vez ... gracias Lynne, Bryan, Pat and Janet - Ontario, Canada
We just got back from a week in Panama. The condo was great -- it was exceptionally clean and well-supplied with amenities like a washer/dryer, coffee maker, blender, cooking equipment and dishes etc. The beds were extremely comfortable. You can tell that the owners really love the place. It has all the best features of a hotel, but it feels like a home. The building itself is clean and well-maintained, and the security guards are very careful to check papers and keep the building safe. There is a large pool overlooking the beach, and an exercise room. Lots of English-speakers have bought condos in the building, and they are very friendly. Panama itself was a happy surprise. The country is not at all like I imagined. It's actually quite mountainous, and 30% of the country is now national parks. The mountains are easily accessible -- maybe an hour or two away by car. Because the condo is on the beach, there are ocean breezes, so although the temperature was in the mid-to-high 80s while we were there, it didn't feel that hot. We had dinner every night on the balcony! I liked Panama so much that my husband and I are already talking about our next trip.
We spent our last 7 days in Panama at the Playa Serena Resort Condo at Gorgona. After 3 weeks of sightseeing, we wanted a place to relax and time in the sun at the pool or beach. We were pleasantly surprised when we stepped into the condo. The kitchen was fully equipped and provided newer appliances, large and small. The washer & dryer came in quite handy for all of us. The living/dining areas were tastefully decorated and there were air conditioners and ceiling fans in each room. Cable and wireless internet were provided along with a number of DVD movies, magazines and books. Each bedroom had ample space for our cloths, luggage and Panamanian treasures (stuff). The building has gated access with a security guard at both entrances, and the building is well maintained. The pool and area were cleaned daily and we met many friendly neighbours. There were lots of lounge chairs, tables and chairs available for all tenants to use. Other than walks, we did not spend much time at the beach because of the heat, however the black sand glistens like diamonds when itâ€™s undisturbed. This was my first private condo rental and the on line description was totally accurate. Booking with the owner was easy and they provided additional information prior to arrival. We recommend the condo under this listing to anyone whoâ€™s looking for a comfortable, clean and safe place to stay in Panama.
