Beautiful Bay View

  • 4 of 5

The unit was nice. It was a little bit of a haul to the beach. Lazy river was awesome. Checkout time being 10am is way too early. Unheard of really. The unit is not really a three bedroom because the 3rd bedroom has no usable closets. Overall it was nice and comfortable. I do agree with previous comments, they need a new cleaning crew as far as a deep cleaning goes.

Loved the condo, lazy river and beach, BUT

  • 5 of 5

Our first evening was disturbed with 3 fire alarms going off every hour! The condo was neat, but had food on silverware in drawer, bathroom drawers were "hairy", Jacuzzi tub spewed black stuff out, shower button in small bathroom tub didn't work all the time and toilet in small bathroom wasn't flushing properly. However, we did have a great time. Just a little more fine-tuning in housekeeping is needed.

Vacation 2017

  • 4 of 5

The condo is really nice but does need some attention. The bathrooms has mildew The toilet seat in the guest restroom needs to be replaced and the toilet runs off and on. The water and the ice maker does not work ( they provided us with two ice trays). The property manager called shortly after we arrived and welcomed us which was nice. However, I would not booked through Panhandle Getaways again ever! They tried to cancel our reservation 3 weeks after it had been booked and a deposit made. I had to get the BBB involved after dealing with them for 4 days with no resolution. Vacations are for relaxation not stress.

Not bad

  • 3 of 5

We arrived on a Saturday around 6pm and when we walked in there was a lady still cleaning the room even though check in was at 4, the room still wasn't ready and after we got in and our bags to the room me and my wife started looking around the room and both looked at each other and said did they even clean in here. So needless to say our first night there we went to target to get a swifter and some Clorox wipes cause the master bedroom didn't even look like it ever got vacuumed and the kitchen floor had black shoe prints from someone walking on the floor while wet. Second was the master bedroom tv cabinet the door was literally hanging on with 1 screw and almost fell off when my 1 year opened the door so a huge safety hazard for little kids. Kitchen was big enough to cook meals for 10 people so no problems there. Great view of the bay and the lazy river, easy to keep eye on kids at the pool from balcony. Short walk across the street for the ocean was nice. Some of the furnishings could use some updates due to so much wear and tear.

Everything was fantastic the room was great, it was close to everything, the only problem we had was that the hot tubs were not working properly the Jets in them were not working but the water was hot, and that the water fall in the pool area was not working as they advertised, other than that it was a great place to go, we would go back.........
