Tidewater Beach Resort

Panama City, Florida

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.

We stayed in room 2207 and this room is awesome! It has been updated with everything you will need and is beautifully decorated. The view was magnificent from the 22nd floor and the unit was extremely clean. The large smart TV has lots of channels and the wifi worked great! The elevators were a little slow but we didn't have too long to wait. We… Read more

This unit is a jewel and we highly recommend it. Read less

During the week that we stayed. NEVER saw anyone cleaning. The lady that checks people in on second floor. Was very rude. The day we we’re leaving up early before staff started working to load car. 2 cars had been parked in 15 min only for 2 days. Only 3 places. Took buggy back after using it.

The day we we’re leaving up early before staff started working to load car. 2 cars had been parked in 15 min only for 2 days. Only 3 places. Took buggy back after using it. Lady on 2nd floor checkin at buggy’s ask for my driver’s license for bringing the buggy back. WHAT. Very dissatisfied disappointed will stay elsewhere next time. But I will say someone was throwing water down from 22 floor while we were at pool. Went and got security they were excellent on top of problem right away. Need to fire rest of staff or give them some training on hospitality and cleaning procedures especially when COVID 19 is worst there than anywhere. Ridiculous Read less

Stayed during Labor Day weekend. The view was spectacular at sunset. Unit was close to elevator and stairs. Had everything needed for a 5 night stay. Clean at check in. Would definitely stay in this unit again.

We stayed in unit 1313 and loved the space and the view. The reason why we picked this condo was the location and the pools on site with a small tiki bar/ice cream parlor.

We stayed in unit 1313 and loved the space and the view. The reason why we picked this condo was the location and the pools on site with a small tiki bar/ice cream parlor. When we arrived the condo was very dirty. I would never suggest anyone to stay in this condo due to the lack of sanitation. The walls were dirty, the doors were dirty, not even to mention the bedding quilts had not been washed. After the first day, I emailed the property manager to let them know. They came a day later and wrote down the items which we were both in agreement about. They did give us a choice to leave or get our cleaning fee back. We were grateful that they at least did that but the worst part is they sent someone to clean our room after reviewing the items we listed in the email. The 2 people came and only cleaned our carpets. They did not clean off the walls, they did not dust and they did not clean the quilts. This was our family trip and with covid-19 going on it did not help that our unit was in violation of every single sanitation requirement. We stayed 4 nights and 5 days. Read less

The condo I rented (2015) needed updating. Toilet paper holder missing in master bath, towel rack hanging loose in 2nd bath, moldy shower curtain liner, sprayer in kitchen not working, etc. These are easily fixed if property management cared.

The condo I rented (2015) needed updating. Toilet paper holder missing in master bath, towel rack hanging loose in 2nd bath, moldy shower curtain liner, sprayer in kitchen not working, etc. These are easily fixed if property management cared. The reviews about elevator issues I read were accurate; very slow, with one elevator out of order for entire week. Only positives were good security on entering property, friendly beach service employees, and a large condo with nice floor plan/view. Mine was a 1 bed/2 bath with bunks. Read less
