Husband 50th birthday!

We had a wonderful time. The weather did not cooperate but we enjoyed our time nonetheless. The condo 1609 was a pleasant surprise. It was clean and comfortable. Didn't see many staff members during my stay. But fortunately I didn't need anything during my visit. I would definitely rent this unit again.

Family vacation

A nice place to stay. The rooms and views were fantastic! Enjoyed the tiki bar at the pool. The only downside is you shouldn't have to wash your towels and clean your room. If you have an extended stay, there should be some towel or cleaning of bathrooms offered. Didn't interact with staff that much as I only saw two. Other then that I recommend this hotel. No spring breakers to ruin a family trip!

Great Stay

We had a very good experience at this condo. This is the second year we have stayed here and love it. The only thing I would change is to update some of the small appliances such as hair dryers and actually have an iron/ ironing board in the room. Otherwise it was a good experience.

View was great, Ice maker never worked. They sent a repair man in the second day who made 5 trips back and forth to his truck which took up two hrs of our day, because he showed up right when we got back from the beach and were getting ready to shower and go out. TV's were very small and outdated, not what was advertised. Overall, not a BAD place, but for the money we spent at the Calypso we will spend it somewhere nicer in August when we go back.

Great Location, Excellent Value

Our first visit to Panama City Beach. Really enjoyed the Calypso, nearby South Pier center (especially Tootsies - a wonderful honky tonk), beautiful beach, and off-season slow pace. Although known to some as the redneck riviera, we found it very nice. beats other FL destinations we visited except Miami Beach and Key West.

Although Capt Andersons (top restaurant) was closed for season, we dined at the Boatyard twice because it was simply excellent. shrimp & grits entree and burger were fabulous.

Calypso nice, Management company Bad!

The management company is horrible and I was so disappointmented with that considering the price we paid to stay somewhere nice. We didn't have towels or wash cloths and had to ask 5 times to get. It took 1 1/2 days to get them. Air condioner went out so we had to change rooms. If you have problems you better hope its between 9-6 or lobby is closed. I won't stay at a Waterstone property again. They clearly didn't care about our problems or our inconvenience.
