  • Relaxing Week

    "This condo is exactly as it is pictured. It was very clean and well stocked. The view of the ocean was beautiful. The Summit pool area is amazing! We also enjoyed having the beach chairs and umbrella provided - made it much less stressful not having to haul chairs down. Kathy was wonderful to work with!"

  • Shores of Panama has changed

    "Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I've been staying at Shores of Panama since 2009 and it has went downhill. This particular condo was just ok compared to the others that we have stayed in. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't the nicest one either. Shores of Panama makes it difficult for people that don't book directly through them. They now charge a daily fee to use the pool! (Yes, I'm serious.) They are strict on when you can buy the bands for pool access, but will give them to people booking through them 24-7. It isn't rocket science to print out a band, so I'm guessing they are just trying to cause grief and hassle those who go through another company. The main level smells bad and the elevators are slow and a little shady. The location is wonderful and the pool is the best in Panama City Beach. Will I stay at Shores of Panama again? Maybe. Will I book this particular condo again after having rented others? Probably not. The floors were not clean upon our arrival and the lights in the bunk room and hall would not come on. It needs a lamp in the living area because the only light is an overhead fan. Someone immediately came to clean the floors and the lights were fixed by the next day, but the whole having to pay extra for the pool and the headache having to wait until 9am to buy the bands rubbed me the wrong way. I complained to the Shores staff who couldn't have cared less and to Book That Condo who also couldn't have cared less. The lady at the front desk refused to give me the band for my young son, demanding that she place the band on his arm herself. Shores needs a management overhaul and elevator upgrades."

  • Comfortable and Accomodating

    "Loved this condo...and I've stayed in many beach condos! This is one of my favorites! The balcony is awesome and makes the view from the living area spectacular. I loved that it had a washer and dryer/storage room right outside the front door. We'd come up from the beach and store all our beach items in there and never tracked any sand into the condo. The bedroom and both bathrooms are spacious...nothing in this condo is cramped. The grounds are well-kept and the building is quiet; it's a nice family-oriented decent location. Another plus is being on the end of PCB and away from all of the hoopla, traffic, crowds and rowdiness. The owner, Chris, is delightful to deal with; he is prompt in booking and in any correspondence you may have with him. If I'm ever in the area again, this is where I will definitely stay."

  • Tropical Oasis

    "Casadeplaya and host A.G. completely exceeded our high expectations after having read the reviews and studied pictures online. The setting is indeed tropical and secluded; like your very own private oasis on the beach. The guesthouse had ample room for the two of us and every amenity we could have wanted. A private pool surrounded by such a beautiful garden was a true delight! Beach access is directly across from the garden gate and the beach was beautiful and uncrowded at all times. It's also a great location for walking the beach road or the surrounding residential areas. I can't say enough about what a gracious and lovely host A.G. is. He was there if we needed him and yet gave us total privacy as well. He turned us on to a few great places where the locals dine that were truly outstanding suggestions. A.G. even hung a birthday flag over our door on my birthday which we had just mentioned in passing. I feel we have a new friend in A.G. and when we return to Laguna Beach, we will definitely be staying with him!"

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.
