"The condo is very nicely decorated and clean. Pictures of the condo, view and beach are very accurate. Just a few steps and you’re at the water’s edge! We went in late May/early April instead of summer and finally saw the beautiful Gulf waters so many have told me about but have alluded me until now. Beautiful! There are also open showers between the pool deck and the beach to get the salt and sand off, which was really nice.
I was however a bit disappointed that other than nice furnishings there was nothing to the place to make you feel at home and welcomed. It was really bare. I've stayed at other places that encourage people to leave menus, discount tickets, pamphlets of attractions and even an account of their stay in a book they had there. This way people unfamiliar with the area have something to help them along. And the last condo I rented went so far as to have tons of beach gear in case you needed it, along with games and books. I’ve passed this on to the owners in hopes they may try this out. It really makes a difference and I think they’ll see positive results from it as renters will be much happier with their stay.
The real issue for us was the location, not to the beach, but to anything else. I had always heard how much fun there was to be had in Panama City and I was severely disappointed. We found not much to do around us except go-carts and mini-golf, which we're not of fan of. Any shopping at quaint little stores or choices of restaurants in a single area, just being able to walk within a large area and find something to do could only be found at Pier Park, and it was 7 miles and tons of traffic away.
So, while not a fan of the area myself, others may be. Or if you’re just looking for a really nice place right on the beach this is definitely the place to stay."
