Grand Panama Resort condo description

You are sure to enjoy the ocean breeze as you relax from the large, 8th floor balcony, while watching the dolphins play in the sparkling waters. You may prefer to soak up the sun around the gorgeous pool area or stroll on the beatiful white sandy beach. When evening comes admire the amazing sunset, then enjoy one of the best meals of your life at the Saltwater Grill, just around the corner. A couple , short miles west, gets you to Pier Park, which offers a great mix of shopping and restaurants totalling over 1 million square feet. There are countless ways to spend your time. The choice is yours.

Grand Panama Resort is one of the newest and best, upscale resorts on the Gulf with over 650 ft of beach frontage and 35 acres of perfectly manicurred, tropically landscaped acres. There is a 'Bonefish Grill' and 'Another Broken Egg' restaurant right on the property. Centrally located, we are very near all popular attractions and having a front and rear entrance allows quick access while preventing the traffic hassles in busy seasons. Take advantage of the 2 adult pools, 2 kiddie pools, 2 spas, 2 tiki bars with food service, and the large fitness room with state of the art equipment, all while resting assured that your vehicle remains safe in the security patrolled, covered garage.

Our condo is in Tower 1, directly on the beach, on the 8th floor, unit 802. We recently finished a complete, upscale renovation consisting of new tile floors, paint, stainless steel appliances, all new furniture, TV's, bedding, paintings, decor, and cooking utensils. This is not an average unit with the commonly used 'Furniture Package', but was professionally decorated with attention to detail, using quality furniture.

Living area offers ocean view and provides ample seating with a couch, ottoman, and 2 chairs. A 42' wall hung, flatscreen tv with deluxe cable and dvd player are present, and free dvd rentals are available from the lobby. The unit is equipped with free WIFI.

Master bedroom also has access to the balcony, features a king bed with a relaxing memory foam mattress, wall hung flatscreen, and dvd player. Adjoining bath has 2 sinks with granite tops, an oversized soaking tub, tiled shower with built in seat, closet with full view mirror, and seperate toilet area.

Guest bedroom is furnished with a queen bed, flatscreen tv, and adjoining full bath.

A hallway alcove provides more sleeping capabilities with a unique built in single bed. The couch also converts into a double bed.

The gorgeous kitchen, along with an ocean view, boasts granite countertops on clean, white cabinets with lighting underneath, and a glass block backsplash. Upgraded stainless appliances include a side by side refrigerator with water and ice in the door, range, microwave, dishwasher, and garbage disposal. You'll find all necessary items to prepare meals: coffee maker, blender, hand mixer, 4 slice toaster, knife set, dinnerware, etc.

A stacked washer and dryer is located in the double hall closet, along with an iron and ironing board, for your convenience. Towels and linens are provided. Just bring your beach towels and you are set.

The large balcony offers absolutely gorgeous views and is the perfect height to eliminate ground noise, but still low enough to view the pool area while remaining seated.


Pier Park hosts many live concerts and events which are usually free and the Grand Theater offers 16 movie choices. Just a few of the restaurants at Pier Park are Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville, Tootsies Orchid Lounge, Wild Wing Cafe, The Back Porch, The Seafood and Oyster House, Longhorn Steaks, Five Guys, and several more. Stores include J C Penny, Dillard's, Old Navy, Ron Jon Surf Shop, plus hundreds of specialty stores.

This unit is also next to Walgreens, Wallmart, Publix, and Dollar Tree for your convenience, and Gulfworld, Ripleys, The County Pier, and many other attractions and restaurants.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2011

                              About the owner: My wife and I are in our late 50's, have one child, and 2 grandchildren, and are semi retired. We were fortunate enough to work for 25 years in our own business selling electrical and plumbing supplies to contractors in our area. However it required us to stay close to home and left little room for vacations. Fortunately, after selling the business a few years ago, that has changed, and we now very much enjoy the time we spend in Panama City Beach.

                              Why the Owner Chose Grand Panama Resort:
                              We have been visiting Panama City Beach off and on for many years and always found it to be one of our favorite places to relax. The city is large enough to accomodate any needs you might have, while still, especially in certain months, be very relaxed and friendly without the crowds that are present in some of the cities farther south. After seriously looking over all the complexes offered in Panama City Beach, we selected Grand Panama mostly because of the overall operation of the resort. We found the grounds, though being 35 acres and much, much larger than any of the other places, were kept cleaner than any we viewed, which was important to us. We wanted our investment to continue to look nice in years to come.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                              We love that our unit is on the beach where we can take a morning walk. The location could not be more convenient with department stores, restaurants and the like being less than a mile away.
