my family summer vacation,

in general we had a great time I went to the pool and beach. Kids had fun. Only prob. was the security on patrol at night I have a five yr. old and an eight year. we played in the pool a lot. they learn how to swim and I had gotten bruises from being on my knees on the swallow end of the pool and the security guard instead of asking about my bruises assumed that my husband gave them to me and just starred at me. I felt uncomf. so I express my feelings about it to my husband he called the front desk to complain they took his complaint the wrong way.. Also did I mention that iwas with my sis-law and she said the sec. was staring at my chest weird... But overall the vaca. went well I enjoyed myself other then that.

Spring Break 2012

Everything was great except the staff. Upon our arrival we were charged with an extra $194.36. I was aware of hidden charges because I had talked with the staff person at the condo directly. When I talked with the representative for your company I was quoted a price that included those charges. The reason being is that I specifically asked the representative about the charges because I knew of them from talking with the condo staff person ( a man). When we arrived and were told we needed an additional $194.36 we were were disappointed. When I tried to explain the situation to the person at the front desk, her name we learned later was Cathy, was very rude. She did not want to listen and talked to us in a very hateful tone. We asked to talk to the manager and she said he/she was not in. We later learned that she was a supervisor. I called the front desk to ask if there was a charge to use the safe and some other things in the condo and I told the person my name and asked if she was the one that just checked her in and she said uh I don't think so, hold on and let me see if someone can answer your question. She then put me on hold. She came back and said there was no charge. I then asked her who was the person that checked us in. She put me on hold again. A different person came back on the line ( the other girl that was at the counter when we checked in) and answered the other question I had asked. I asked her the name of the girl that check us in and she said that her name was Cathy and that she had already left for the day. I called down approx. 5 min. after we got to the condo. I'm usually good at people and voices since I am an administrative assistant, therefore the person that I spoke with first was indeed the person that checked us in. Other than that everything was excellent! We really enjoyed or stay. The condo was gorgeous. Although I think that a unrefundable damage fee is a little much! We were adults and we always leave a place in the condition we found it. This condo was no exception, we left it close to the way we found it.

Very Angry

Upon my arrival, the desk clerk informed me that even though I had already paid for the room through [...], I had to pay an ADDITIONAL $85 to check in!!! She said it was an additional fee for cleaning the room!!! This was not because we left the room so dirty, this was happening as I was checking in!!! And I had to pay it. Very disappointed and angry. Obviously, I cannot recommend this hotel, nor will I ever stay there again.

Great Weekend Getaway!

Think I have a "new favorite" condo at Panama City Beach! After reading other reviews (especially those regarding the staff and check-in horrors), I was a little skeptical about staying at this condo. However, I had previously stayed at another condo operated by the same company and never had any problems checking in or out. The Boardwalk was GREAT, just inches from perfection...the perfect place for my fiance and I to celebrate our recent engagement! Our room was beautifully decorated with a gorgeous view of the ocean. I love the serenity of the condo's location...private yet close enough to area attractions. The room was quiet and well-insulated. It seemed that we were the only people at the condo when we were inside our room (no noisy neighbors or screaming children)! And the parking area was perfect!!!! Unlike condos and hotels located on Front Beach Road that have really congested, tight parking areas just inches away from the street, the Boardwalk's parking lot was large and privately located far from the street. With onsight security, I felt safe and free to enjoy my weekend! There was only one negative thing about our room - the bathroom tub and sink drains were extremely slow! By the end of my shower, the water had reached my ankles and before I finished brushing my teeth, the sink was half full of water (I only ran the water to rinse after brushing)! I recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a great place to stay without the 'hustle and bustle' of Front Beach Road! It was a great place to stay and I will stay at this condo again (although not the same unit...the drainage issue was a little much)!
