Jim & Aundrea Sparks purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jim & Aundrea Sparks chose Florida North West

We chose Tidewater Resort for many reasons. First of all, the location can't be beat. Not only is it walking distance to Pier Park which is where everyone wants to go during their visit to Panama City Beach, it is also less than a mile from Gulf World Marine Park, another huge attraction. It also happens to be the very first oceanfront condo you get to from the airport which means if you fly in you will literally be on the beach in 15 minutes. the amenities at Tidewater are also the best. 2 outdoor pools, an indoor heated pool, several 15 person Roman spas, saunas, 2 arcade rooms, a restaurant, coffee & ice cream shop, a tiki bar, a movie theatre, free wireless Internet, covered parking, 24 hour security, enough said!

What makes this condo unique

Our particular unit on the 28th floor offers incredible sky scraping panoramic views of the beautiful Emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. In this penthouse condo you get the best of everything. Extended ceilings, travertine tile, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, stylish decor and with the master bedroom on the gulf you get dual floor to ceiling sliding doors that lead to a lavishly appointed 30 foot balcony. You won't want to leave!

The condo was really nicely decorated, great views from the 28th floor. We saw dolphins, sharks and stingrays. The elevators were a little slow.

Fabulous Vacation & Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this beautiful condo for a two week stay and were totally thrilled! Although we were not new to this area we had never before stayed in a high rise and said we would never do so. We fell in love with the view, the height, the accommodations, the was perfect! The balcony provided the perfect place for our morning coffee and/or our evening wine. We were able to see schools of fish, small mantas, dolphins and weather! We will definitely return!

Good time, but umbrella's need to be more secure.

  • 4 of 5

We have a good time at the resort. The location was close to Pier Park and good restaurants. We stayed in unit 2815. It had great views. Although it was a one bedroom, it was roomy enough for two adults, two 18 year old boys, and a 14 year old girl. The only complaints that I have were the elevator wait times, the dryer in my unit did not work, and the beach umbrellas.

1-They have multiple elevators, but you need to add at least 5 minutes to your time for elevators. They have sensors in the elevator so that it doesn't stop when the elevator is full, which is great.

2-I got to my unit early and it was in the process of being cleaned. The cleaning lady was very kind and let me see the layout of the room and texted me when she was finished. The room was not as clean as I expected (dusting, food left under the t.v., refrigerator had a funky smell), but I was understanding because she was working hard to get us in a little after check in time and it was nothing that a little Lysol cleaner and a broom couldn't handle. The one thing that I couldn't fix was the dryer. I did inform the owners, just to make sure they were aware that a new one is needed, they were very receptive.

3-We generally do at least 3 beach vacations a year, and this was the 1st time anyone was injured by a flying umbrella. For some reason, the umbrella's were unable to be secured enough that even when closed, they would fly out of the holder and into the air. One of our friends was hit in the head and her baby received a busted lip. We finally gave up on relaxing at the beach because of the umbrella storm (in which several people were injured).

Overall, it was a good place to stay and I would recommend this resort.
