Perfect for Us!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely perfect for my family - myself, my husband and my two teenage children. Breathtaking view, from the balcony overlooking the ocean and white sands. No crossing any roads to get to the beach. The beach was busy but NOT crazy crowded like it was when you walked down the beach further. The condo is only 3 levels so you don't have long waits at the elevator and tons of other people everywhere-I do not like the tall 20 story buildings just not for me. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere of Crystal Sands is very family-oriented. We stayed over spring break and did not experience all the college kids around us like we did when we stayed in Panama city. The condo itself was tastefully decorated with a beach theme which I loved, and was very clean! The bed was huge and there were two bunks for the kids. Even though the kids did not have their own room there was PLENTY of storage for everyone's clothes. We had a bath and a half, which was a big help when someone was in the shower but another person needed to use the bathroom so another big plus! Washer and dryer inside the unit - used it daily! Nicely stocked kitchen and lots and lots of bath towels! Close to everything- lots to do but we mainly just hung at the beach and relaxed. This condo was also one of the best priced ones that I found on the net.....which was one of the main reasons why I chose this one - because it had all the amenities we needed without breaking the bank for us. , It definitely did not disappoint!!! I would recommend to anyone and would go back here in a heartbeat❤️

Beautiful view, however condo needs updated

  • 2 of 5

The condo provides a beautiful view, and you are just steps from the water. The complimentary beach service was nice, we did not have to pack a beach umbrella as that was provided.

The condo, however, could really benefit from several updates. There was an ever present musty/mildew smell that we noticed every time we entered the property. The carpet in the living room appeared to be very old. Removal of the carpet might help with the musty odor.

The water in shower seemed fine, but the main toilet filled at a trickle, so thankfully there were two.

While you couldn't beat the view, I would not recommend this property for a relaxing vacation getaway.

Owner's Response: Thanks for this new information. Any scent like you described is almost always due to an air-conditioning issue. I’ve placed a service call to have the issue addressed. The carpet is currently only 4 years old, but is scheduled for normal replacement this fall. I’ve put a service ticket to maintenance team at Crystal Sands to fix the slowly refilling toilet tanks. Again, thanks for the information. Your note helps us improve the experience of future renters.

Perfect for our beach loving family

  • 5 of 5

The location of the condo is perfect. It's just steps away from the sand and ocean. And the complimentary two beach chairs & an umbrella were a WONDERFUL bonus! The balcony was my favorite spot of the condo. It's where I spent most of my time at the room. It was perfect for my morning coffee, my afternoon drink & relaxing after the kids went to bed enjoying the moon & the sounds of the waves. The condo itself was spacious, clean & well equipped. The king sized bed is super comfy, too! The owners were very nice in all of my communications with them. Thanks so much for sharing your "little piece of heaven" with our family! We had a wonderful time!

Clean and right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean. The appliances were spotless. We loved being right there on the beach and the beach service was wonderful. There were plenty of chairs/umbrellas. One of us went out early each day with our towels to claim chairs that were closer to the entrance of the building. The elevator was right by our door which we liked because it was so convenient. We didn't hear any noise. Not sure if that's because we were there before Memorial Day weekend but it was quiet. We wish we didn't have to pick up keys and drop them off. Some doors have electronic locks. No worries about losing a key that way. We don't understand the need for keys. You have to take a key to the beach and if you lose it there's a charge for that. But the bottom line is we loved it and had a wonderful relaxing (no kids) vacation.
