“Not on the Beach”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Let me start with its not on the beach, and they do have transportation to take you there. The beach club has a resturant, that is open air. If you order food, you will be so busy with your hands waving off the flys that you will hardly have time to eat. Nothing fancy, about the beach, clean and easy to walk along and see millionaires row of houses. Back to the resort, the room smelled so musty that we immediately went to the front office asking to be moved. They said they didn't have another room available of the same type. My husband and I said we didn't care, so we got a basic room. Had 2 mornings that we had no hot water for showers. The third morning I was determined to get hot water called the maintenance guy, and he got us hot water. Not sure what he did but we did have hot water. The restaurant by the pool, did not have good food at all. I was so disappointed in the food, the service was ok, but don't ask for anything different on the menu. Asked to add tomatoes to my omelet and they said ok, then it came without. Prices are ok, but not cheap. I know Im from another country (America) however quality here is not up to par. The resort is clean and well kept, but not fancy.

We stayed for 3 nights during August 2013. The facilities are really nice, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, well appointed and looked clean. Unfortunately the lodge occupancy seems very low during August, and we experienced several problems with our room, including an insect bite in the ear during the night that required a visit to the clinic, and no hot water. We were moved to a different room which also had a hot water problem, but they were able to fix it. After complaining, a 10% discount was provided, and the fee for one night was waived.

This is an exclusive, gated community. The community is made up of exquisite beachfront homes, mostly utilized during weekends...few residents during the week. At the entrance there are a few restaurants where the residents hang out in the afternoon and evenings...the dress is casual and the fare is light; i.e., hamburgers, chicken, etc....sandals/shorts type attire. In addition, it's a 5-minute drive to a commercial hub made up of businesses which sell everything you might need; with a 24-hour El Rey Supermarket. In addition, there's a medical clinic, San Fernando at the entrance which has state-of-the-art equipment.

My sister had to go there due to contracting a stomach virus for drinking the water and she was treated expeditiously and for gratis. Panama's gov't pays for these types of medical issues if they occur within 30 days of tourist arrival in the country...and the medications are also included. GREAT PR move on their part.

All ex-pat's and returning Panamanians even though naturalized American, are given a 15% discount for most everything you might purchase. I took full advantage of this benefit.

Back to the Coronado Community: Although most homes are in the Million $ range, there are some medium-priced ones; those mostly are the older homes.

All in all, a great place to be and enjoying the assurance that people you encounter would've passed through a security check. BTW, there's also a Police Station at the entrance of the property.

I stayed in the hotel for 2 days with my friends. Really, the hotel staff was very pleasing and friendly. I really enjoyed my stay there. All the facilities were provided to us that we need. The rooms of the hotel were clean and big. The pool facility is also provided. i had fun time with my friends in the pool. The price was not much according to the facilities and the rooms of the hotel. The hotel was fully decorated, it makes me happy while i entered in the hotel. You must stay in this hotel when you go there for spending your vacations with your friends and family.

As the title mentions, there was little to do at this resort; there were no programs or tours available . The pool was gargantuan and little used, as was the beach club, but these only entertained us for so long. The club is really oriented around it's golf course, but unfortunately we do not play. Luckily we had made contact with a tour guide prior to staying at the Coronado, and he brought us to the beautiful town of El Valle de Anton (with a natural spa consisting of a thermal spring). Maybe if we had rented a car, but then there would be the daunting task of getting information and directions.
