The hotel

If you’re heading for Florida’s fabulous Panhandle, it’s probably for the beaches — so a spot right on the sands of Panama City Beach is pretty hard to rival. Along one of the biggest private beaches (said to cover more than two football fields of sand), this high-rise shoots up from the shoreline to give you the best in beachfront apartment living. Each of the private condos inside is unique, but they all share a collection of handy holiday extras — including two beachfront lagoon pools, an indoor pool, a fitness centre, a games room, and a handful of hot tubs. There’s space in your condo to cook, dine, and lounge about, but you’re also a stroll from Pier Park’s shops and restaurants if you fancy forgoing the washing up and dining out.

The condo itself was good. Everything was clean, well maintained and current. The cafe/ bar was convenient and good. Parking was easily accessible, safe and dry. The down side is their HOA and communication from the leasing company. Changing someone's door code there times in a row without telling them is rotten. Who wants to spend half an hour… Read more

The down side is their HOA and communication from the leasing company. Changing someone's door code there times in a row without telling them is rotten. Who wants to spend half an hour on a rainy breezeway with customer service from India in the middle of the night just to get in your room? Read less

Staff was friendly, beaches were gorgeous. The unit wasn’t well kept, including hairballs behind doors, bird poop literally covering the balcony furniture, furniture in disrepair, door in one bedroom was cracked and had a hole in it, silverware wasn’t clean, and the master bed sagged at least 8 inches in the middle. You get what you pay for.

Overly disappointed with the living. The floor was filthy (all must wear socks or shoes or feet turns black). Kitchenware needs updating (steak knives about to break and pots missing lids need replacing). The ice tray for the fridge was broken with rusted nails. LARGE crumbs found between counter and stove. Sink stopper in master bedroom doesn't… Read more
Overly disappointed with the living. The floor was filthy (all must wear socks or shoes or feet turns black). Kitchenware needs updating (steak knives about to break and pots missing lids need replacing). The ice tray for the fridge was broken with rusted nails. LARGE crumbs found between counter and stove. Sink stopper in master bedroom doesn't work. Toilet has rust stain. Couch pillows torn. Some bed sheets had stains and one pillow had old slobber. We will never stay here again and not recommend this to any family, friend, or enemy... Paid too much to get so little... At least parking was spacious... There's a bright side for you... Read less

The new management is amazing! The entire staff was very responsive and polite. Great views and very kid friendly. We will be returning for sure! The beach was beautiful as was the pool. Our family had such a great time.
