Kerrie Gunier purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Kerrie Gunier chose Playa Coronado
This condo development has everything we love to do: the Beach, the Golf, an Equestrian Center (horse back riding and so much more), fishing (salt water and fresh water - Lake Gaston is about 45 mins away) and Swimming Pools everywhere and outstanding affordable restaurants that serve incredible meals for a minimal amount of money. During our dry season I will say February thru March, Panama faces in some areas, extended period without rain which causes that they schedule water supply in different areas in some cases including Coronado. Coronado Golf is a place you can really unwind, build great lasting memories and just have fun every day.
What makes this Condo unique
The country is absolutely beautiful. Mountains, fertile land, fresh fruit, delicious foods, great medical care, incredible beaches, best fishing (fresh water and salt water), shopping everywhere (upscale malls with great prices/deals), Golf, Tennis, Equestrian Centers - horseback riding, boating, zip-lining, and great Panamanian people who are really wonderful people to meet and get to know. OTHER FUN THINGS IN THE AREA Shopping Zip Line Tours and also we offer airport transportation round trip or one way. Ask for our prices and be part of this great experience.

The condo was beautiful and well maintained. The view was breathtaking.
This was better than a home away from home. The condo is close to shopping and restaurants. We chose to do our food shopping and cook most of our meals and everything we needed was provided. Mitzi was excellent and readily available if we needed anything. This will always be our place to stay in Coronado.
The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
We rented this condo for nine nights beginning 3/11/2016. We ended up leaving early, on 3/13, after a very bad experience.
The Good: The condo itself was very nice and roomy. It was well-appointed and comfortable. Our local representative, Mitzi, was outstanding. She was friendly, helpful and very responsive. She was definitely the best part of the experience.
The Bad: Upon arrival, we read a notice in the elevator that water service would only be maintained between 08:00 and 22:00 due to a water shortage. We initially had water, but it was suspended early that evening, well before 22:00.
The next morning (3-12), we awoke to still no water. We couldn’t get a drink of water, flush toilets or take showers. Later that morning, water was restored for a few minutes and then was out again. Still later, it was restored once again for a while and a new water schedule was posted with more restricted hours. The first water was to be available at 08:00 the next morning. We learned from others in the building that water was being trucked in to serve the building and was not potable and was murky.
On Sunday, 3/13, we planned to clean-up and go to brunch after water was restored at 08:00. It was not. We contacted Mitzi and were later informed that management couldn’t guarantee the schedule, meaning that, if we wanted to shower and flush toilets (which I won’t describe here – you can imagine), we couldn’t make plans for the day. The water finally came on at 11:00 and we quickly flushed and showered. But, this situation was totally unacceptable. If we could depend on the water schedule, we would have stayed. But, with no accurate schedule, we could not. So, we changed our plans and left assuming we would receive a refund.
The Ugly: Upon, returning home, having experienced added costs for changing airline reservations, etc., I was confident that we would receive a refund of our condo payment. I was wrong. We only received our security deposit. I set a deadline for a full refund but none was received. We were offered alternate accommodations at another location at the time, but we were familiar with this complex and it was unacceptable. We were also offered equivalent accommodations in the fall of 2017 with golf privileges, but it would cost us more than $3000 in airfare, rental car, etc., to take advantage of. I believe the return of our original investment was the only acceptable solution.
Property Owners beware of these renters. In four years we never had an experience like this one. If you look at our reviews we have wonderful reviews ALWAYS! These clients expected us to be miracle workers but we cannot control the weather. We tried everything to accommodate these clients including offering them 5 star accommodations at Casa Bonita in Veracruz Panama which we also have here on VRBO which rent for up to double the daily cost where they were staying in Coronado. If you just review the weather issues in Panama , it is very widely known there are water shortages based on rain shortages. We notify our clients that this is always a possibility but have no control. However, while at our unit even though there was not water all day long, there was water available at specific times twice a day. In addition we offered them a very nice accommodations package for more than the time they were booked with us for this first trip when they turned down the Casa Bonita location but that was not good enough either. There is NO pleasing the folks no matter how much you do to support them, even though rain, storms, droughts, hurricanes etc is an act of God / nature and cannot be controlled by man. We have very happy pleased clients that return over and over and we treat them like family with a very nice welcome gift of wine, coffee and bottled waters etc. We do everything in our power to make our guest experience a wonderful one. I guess after 4 years there's bound to be THAT ONE that is never going to be pleased. So very sad!!
My trip to Coronada Golf Resort was awsome! The condo had a spectacular view. It was spacious, beautifully furnished, and had everything I needed. I had the opportunity to go to spa and it was relaxing and beautiful. The Club House restaurant was excellent. The grounds and pools were well kept. I had everything I needed right there on the resort !!! Great week!
Liz was a great guest. She was very open and communicated with me regularly. She also was very courteous and left the unit in better shape than when she arrived. You would think she owned the condo the way she cared for it. I would love to have Liz visit again. Thanks for being our guest and we look forward to your next visit.
Magical Condo overlooking ocean, golf course & mountains!
First I have to say, I have never been in a condo with three sides! Being a lover of light, I was in heaven. Both bedrooms, the kitchen, master bath, master bedroom and living room/dining room ALL had windows!! Light bright and cool breezes..Ahhh..
SURPRISE: Sit on the balcony with your coffee after the sunrise and wait for the light "show." My cousin and I watched it several mornings in a row. What happens is the sun breaks through the clouds and shines down onto the water to form a perfect circle of light. Looks like a spotlight and the show is about to start. Beautiful!
Well appointed condo had absolutely everything you could hope for. Thoughtful touches throughout. Would definitely stay again.
A wonderful pacific escape
The condo itself is wonderfully furnished and comfortable getaway. The area is close enough to delicious dining and grocers and also a short distance to the beach. The Golf course and driving range were also a plus and fun to play.
This guest was a single graduate. He was a great guest and has actually visited twice now. He came to learn to surf and practice his Spanish as he wants to teach Spanish in the US. He was a delightful guest and loved our condo. He says he feels like he is home when he stays here. Thanks Stephen for visiting and we can't wait to see you again!
Great for family's
This condo is very nice. It is so quiet that is seems like you have the entire building to yourself. The view is amazing! The condo has a large balcony and being on the 16th floor it gets a nice breeze. The pools are everywhere and almost always free of people. The kitchen is modern and large enough to cook anything you want. The whole property is surrounded by the golf course. It is about a 10-15 minute drive to get to the condo once inside the Coronado gate. The owner Drew and the property Manager Richard are very helpful.
George was so amazing. They left the condo in like "un-used" condition when leaving. We love our guest to have the experience of a life time and hope when they leave they are planning their next visit to return. Thanks for being such a pleasure to get to work with George.
Playa Coronado is a gated secure development that has attracted the ex-pat community. There is a great and diverse mix of people from all over the world but especially from North America. This is an amazing group of people looking to retire, have a second home and invest in a very friendly and amazing tropical paradise.
