Recent Panama City Beach Area reviews

  • First Class Unit

    "This was our first condo we ever stayed in while on vacation and we were not disappointed. This was the Perfect unit for me and my family. Exceptionally clean, lots of space, gorgeous views, and lots of things to do for the kids. The owner was very easy to work with and was always available to answer any questions. We had a totally wonderful time for the 7 nights we stayed there and I'm missing it already. Splash is a great resort and if I stay there again in the future, I will definitely try to book this unit! Thanks for an awesome vacation!!!"

  • Great condo

    "My family loved it. The ocean views were spectacular, from both bedrooms and the living room. We all enjoyed watching the dolphins, and the beautiful sunsets from the balcony."

  • Campy Feel

    "So if you are into Ritzy this is not for you. If you are familiar with camps in Grand Isle Louisiana then this is perfect for you. Of course the best part is being right on the beach. THIS IS AWESOME!! The cottage fit all 5 of us comfortably VERY CLEAN. I saw the other reviews and was worried about this cottage, but it was really clean. It was just old. The air unit in the front room was not working properly when we arrived but we called Mr Heywood and it was quickly replaced. Kids loved it there ages 16, 15, 13. We were right in the middle of everything close to water parks and Pier Park which we really enjoyed. I would definitely stay here again. The accommodations were perfect for our family."

  • Loved My Stay and Room!

    "We vacationed in this unit in June 2014. Everything was just as pictured and expected. Corie at 20/20 Real Estate was very nice to deal with and very accommodating. I would not hesitate to use this group the next time I travel in this area. The Pro's of the unit are: Location. It is within walking distance to several things..too many to mention but a Walmart is included. It is also very clean. The view is great; truly panoramic in every room. The balcony is extra large for this type of unit and the doors coming from the bedrooms onto the balcony help to have more privacy within the unit. There were several doors that could be closed off for smaller space privacy. Having a washer/dryer was very helpful. The unit is in a very desirable area, very close to the pool and the beach entrance. The beach area is kept very clean. Cons: Be sure and bring bath and kitchen towels with you. We had to wash towels at least once a day just to have enough. The bathtubs are very large and nice (no jets in tub) but having a slight disability; I would have felt much more comfortable to have a bar to get in and out of tub. Water pressure sucked in shower. Other cons would be that you do get noise off of the yard areas. They were not real disturbing but sometimes the guys got loud playing games below, outside the balcony area. Please be careful of the front door as it is very heavy and shuts automatically. You are warned of it in your contract and I agree they need to. Overall, my whole family thought the unit was great! I would return again even to this same unit but I will say that I could not really see the "emerald" coast in this lower floor room. However, if you are scared of being up too high, this is your room. I picked the lower floor because I had a 3 and 5 year old with me. Rating 1-10? I would give it and 8.5."

Panama City Beach Area Travel Tips

The history of Panama City Beach goes back to the Native Americans who inhabited the land before the arrival of the British. It was also an important location in World War II and some of the cannon platforms can still be found along the shores.

Each spring, college students flock to Panama City Beach for a week of fun in the sun with thousands of their newest friends. Located in the Florida Panhandle, Panama City Beach sits along the Gulf of Mexico and largely depends on its natural surroundings to draw in tourists and keep the local economy going.

Must-see Attractions in Panama City Beach

St. Andrews State Recreation Area: St. Andrews State Recreation Area is one of Florida’s most popular places for outdoor recreation. It was rated the “No. 1 Beach in America” in 1995 and is known for the 1.5 miles of white sandy beaches, natural dunes and clear waters. Here, the beaches are easy to access and many are undeveloped. You’ll want to do it all with activities to explore such as snorkeling, diving, fishing and outdoor water sports.

Beaches: There are 27 miles of sand and surf to choose from in Panama City Beach, all of which include a different experience. If you want seclusion, head to Shell Island where there’s no development or access, except by boat. Visitors will find a quiet beach escape at Camp Helen State Park and it's only a short walk away from the water. Visitors can enjoy games of beach volleyball at Schooner’s Beach behind LaVela and Spinnaker where you can grab a bite to eat and a refreshing beverage without leaving the beach. The city also offers nearly 100 beach access points, so you won’t have to look hard to find a way to the sand. Children will love building sandcastles and the adults will enjoy a day of sunbathing with the occasional dip in the water.

Dive sites: Panama City Beach features 24 dive sites for the adventurous who want to go deep under the water and get a first-hand look at the world beneath the sea. You can choose from sites like 4 Army Tanks, Chippewa, Fountainbleau Boxcars, Grey Ghost, Liberty Ship, Sherman Tug, The Black Bart and USS Strength.

Zoos: If you’re bringing the kids along for the fun, check out Gulf World Marine Park and the ZooWorld Zoological and Botanical Park. These attractions are full of marine animals and typical zoo creatures.

Man in the Sea Museum: Learn more about the old ways of deep sea exploration at the Man in the Sea Museum. There are written records, diagrams and drawings to help show what life was like for those who spent their lives below the surface in search of sea life and underwater habitats.

Shopping and Dining in Panama City Beach

Shopping in Panama City Beach: There’s no shame in taking a break from the beach to enjoy a day of retail therapy. There are boutiques that line the streets of Panama City beach as well as open-air malls near the coastline. If you want an unique souvenir to bring home, stop by speciality shops such as Pieces and Blue Heron Fine Gifts. The city’s speciality shops also feature handmade jewelry as well as antiques, collectibles and traditional beachy treats. Beach House Market is home to more than 20 vendors who sell sea-inspired gifts. Visitors to the city shouldn’t leave without shopping at Pier Park. Although it doesn’t quite fit the description of a mall, Pier Park has more than 1 million feet full of local favorites and big-name stores for you to shop until you drop.

Dining in Panama City Beach: You don’t even need to leave the beach to grab a bite to eat. Some of the best views in the city are at restaurants lining the coast. Many of the eateries offer open-air casual dining while you watch the sun set and fishermen head back in from a day at sea. Many diners go for the chargrilled grouper or the fresh Apalachicola oysters. If you aren’t a fan of seafood, don’t worry because Southern barbecue, steak and pulled pork options are also available.
