Hot in Panama City
Watercrest was a nice place , fantastic security. The Condo was nicely furnished and had everything you’d need for a great vacation however, it needed a really really good floor cleaning. The carpet was almost black in places and there were some maintenance issues that needed to be addressed. The worst was the Master bedroom. It was always hot. Daytime nap? Forget about it! I turned the air down to 70 and that really didn’t help. And it never got over 78 outside. The master needed something like a dyson cooling fan. And the patio was large with 6 chairs but not a table of any kind. I’d be afraid to rent the place mid summer. I notified the rental company, hope they address them.

Great despite Hurricane Irma!
Condo is spacious, master bed very comfortable, views are the best thing about this unit. This is the nicest place I have stayed on the gulf and I come often. Encountered a few problems--shower handle broke off on first use, dryer lint screen came dislodged from its housing so couldn't use it, but other than that, this is an amazing place and would definitely book again. Note: the AC issue continues in the master bed and bath, although was not terrible for us bcz we were there during Hurricane Irma so sun not beating down every day of our stay.
Hi Sarah. Thank you for your feedback on your stay at this fabulous condo. We’re happy to hear you enjoyed this spacious unit with amazing views! We’re glad you found the master bed comfortable.

We hope you will come back to visit us! Thank you for staying with Real Joy!
