This is the fifth year that we stayed at Coronado Bay with Dreams in Panama managed by Lynda and Richard. They are very accommodating with anything you request. We stayed for the months of March and April and this was our second time in 205. The grounds are beautifully maintained with colorful flowers and greenery.
This condo is positioned with a large balcony overlooking the pool and ocean with a gas grill. It has full length slider windows connecting the balcony to let the breeze come through by opening the door to the public hallway. The king size mattress is comfortable with black out curtains.
Coronado Bay always has a great group of expats visiting during the winter months. It’s convenient for Picasso’s that has a weekly market on Tuesdays and live Rock and Roll bands on Saturday nights and many fun events. There’s also other good restaurants on the local road and large grocery stores on the main highway. The massive beach is great for walking and finding shells or sea glass. It’s always hot and mostly sunny.
Lynda always finds us a condo that works for us and we keep coming back. Thank you much!
We recently spent almost 3 glorious months at the Coronado Bay Solarium! Our suite was very spacious, with a large bedroom, king-size bed, ensuite bathroom, and comfortable living/dining area. Facing southeast, we had a gorgeous view of the mighty Pacific, beach, lower pool areas, and gardens! The pools, gardens, and social areas are well maintained by the pleasant staff. We enjoyed many amenities, excursions, and activities–including walking on the beach, working out in the gym (with the fabulous view if the beach), participating in water aerobics, joining new friends for Trivia at Picasso’s and dining out.
Lynda and Richard are wonderful hosts/managers! Prior to our arrival, Lynda sent us lots of helpful information about the condo, town, and area. Our arrival was delayed six hours, yet Lynda warmly welcomed us to Coronado Bay late at night and helped us get settled. Both Lynda and Richard are extremely personable, caring, professional, and responsive.
The only downside was the unit did not have an oven, although it did have a top stove, microwave, and toaster oven. We were able to borrow a BBQ from one of our new friends, so all was very well.
In sharing our great experiences with folks back home, my sister and brother-in-law were so impressed that they came to vacation with us at Coronado Bay, also renting through Lynda. We heartily recommend Coronado Bay and Solarium!
Just had a month staying at this condo, loved the view from the deck & short walk down to the pool. The condo was very comfortable & clean with the added bonus of a king size bed & a BBQ on the balcony. Kitchen facilities are very basic but quite adequate for cooking for two people in a hot country, (you wouldn’t want to have an oven on here & certainly don’t need one!) The balcony furniture was comfortable, air conditioning worked well, nice pool towels etc. Although we were staying in the low season there were still lots of people to socialize with & everyone was very friendly & helpful.
The beach was great for walking & swimming, interesting mixture of black & white sand, quite unique.
There are two very good restaurants very close to Coronado Bay, just a few minutes walk. The rest are further up the road & into Coronado, about a 45 minute walk to the highway. Unfortunately the road is rather narrow & not very good for walking along but there are small mini vans that run during the day that cost 50c per person & usually there’s a taxi somewhere that should cost $2-$3.
Having Lynda & her husband in the same building is very convenient, if you have any problems or questions they respond immediately. They were great to deal with & extremely helpful. Would highly recommend this condo or any others that Lynda manages.
Would love to come back sometime, preferably when the exchange rate for the Canadian dollar is better!
Thanks again Lynda & Richard
We stayed at Coronado Bay, Unit 303, from December 9-14, 2018. It was magnificent! From the moment we opened the door, we were in awe! Sparkling clean, comfortable, full beach view, nearby restaurants and grocery stores. Lynda is a lovely lady and always there to help. We highly recommend staying here!
My husband and I were here for 13 nights and had a great stay. We have been to Coronado several times and this was one of our best. Full beach view, clean and comfortable Condo. Small, but well priced and efficient. Lynda was very responsive to our needs and willing to offer help in any way to make sure we had a wonderful visit. If we weren’t buying our own condo we would be back! Thank you!
We love the bay, it’s people and the endless sand and beach. It’s our second year to return to CB and will do it again next year. Lynda was very accommodating, answering our concerns very quickly. The unit is comfortable and a bit more spacious as it has a Murphy bed instead of a second bedroom. Tools for cleaning are limited. Overall, a great unit.
We were absolutely awed by Coronado Bay and our property manager Lynda! The condo has a beautiful view of a gorgeous black and white sand beach. Lynda was by far the most accommodating property manager we have dealt with (and we have travelled extensively). The unit was missing a couple of items and Lynda was at our door with the items within twelve hours of being notified. The overall complex was spotless,well maintained and very secure. Complimentary water aerobics classes were held three mornings a week and provided a fun venue to meet others. Everyone was very friendly..we were invited to a potluck within three days of arrival! I have absolutely no hesitation inrecommending this
property… I will return!!
Nice place to stay, all expectations met.
Lynda was very nice and gave us all the info we needed. Few steps away you have everything you need for a pleasant stay. Restaurants and markets to have nice dinner at the suite. The suite was very well equipped and confortable. Only thing I missed was a boiling jar or pot.
We will surely come back. I highly recommend the place. All the staff was wonderful.
I would give this property 4.5 stars. Great location and in a very friendly community. The Dreams in Panama staff and all of the service people they recommended were fantastic. We really appreciated that everything Dreams told us, they did! All promises kept, all expectations met or exceeded. Sadly, the weather was not ideal but the building had beautiful facilities so it was a great vacation. Condo 409 is perfect for a family or 2 couples ( grab the master bedroom!!!, 2nd bedroom is much smaller and no closet) Some nice amenities were provided such as a hair dryer ( I forgot mine), supplies to get you started and even a welcome bottle of wine! Thanks very much Dreams in Paradise.
Lenora J. on 04/26/2017 02:38: My husband and I spent one week at Coronado Bay and loved every minute of it. The property is beautiful and well-maintained. The condo had an amazing ocean view and was only steps away from a gorgeous black and white sand beach. The condo was fully stocked from the kitchen to the bathrooms. Quite a few expats have retired to Coronado so we had an opportunity to meet quite a number of them. All very nice people. They made us feel very welcomed and we were even invited to dinner with a few. I can’t say enough about Lynda, Magda and Richard. You will not find more genuine, friendly people anywhere. Before we even left for vacation, we had all the information we needed – rental car agencies, grocery stores, tourists attractions, TVchannels, transportation services, etc. Any question I had, they answered within 24 hours. I gauge a vacation by, not only the beauty of the destination, but the quality of the people you have to deal with when you get there. I think the best answer to that….we would stay there again in a heartbeat!
