We arrived after hours, the office had already sent me information for gate and door codes. Room was clean, but as with any room, I wear shoes inside. My husband or kids didn't. Their feet were black on bottom. (But you could tell floors had the appearance of being clean.) The carpets were stained. We stayed 4 nights, the listing said that toiletries were included, this is halfway right. I traveled with a total of 4 people. Needless to say, I usually bring extra toilet paper and paper towels and since the listing said they were supplied I didn't bring any. So...when two adults and two teenage boys were there for 4 nights - 5 days, we ran out. I went to ask for more, they said that we only get the initial rolls that were in the bathrooms. (I would think as much money as the room costs, you should get enough toilet paper for your stay. So-bring your own accordingly.) They did provide the small bottles of shampoo/conditioner/soap for both bathrooms and dish detergent, clothes detergent. Our room included complementary beach chairs, which was nice, but be at the hut at 8:00 AM or you will be on back row, Also included was a movie pass, there is a dvd vending machine in the office. You can watch as many movies as you want, but only one at a time and once the office is closed, you have to wait until the next day. The elevators we never had to wait on, except for Saturday, around check-out time. They were SUPER busy. The location was the best thing about whole place.

We had a nice time, the hotel was fine. The wait for the elevator was too long at times. The design seemed that it was awkward in getting to elevators and that there are not enough of them for the size of the building. I did not like that you could not take a drink to the pool. The layout of the room is more for a family with little kids versus college-aged kids. As the bunk beds in the center of the condo are for smaller kids or short people.

Fantastic family resort. Pristine beach, adequate seating. Fantastic pool area. Room was immaculate, modern and comfortable. Great walking distance to restaurants, shops, pier, etc. Would stay here again.

Awesome stay! I loved the view & love the location near Pier Park! Calypso is a wonderful place to stay any month of the year! Perfect vacation !

This hotel was awesome! It had everything a family of 4 needed, kid friendly, excellent amenities! Very close, walking distance to Pier Park and restaurants.

Other than the weather, our trip was great. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, and the location was great as well. Would stay here again!

Everything was great and the family really liked the location.

Very nice location, close to pier and restaurants. Staff are nice and helpful. My only take is that that carpets of the unit were not clean and had stains.

Great location close to shops and restaurants at pier park. Beautiful view from the balcony. Room could have been a little cleaner but it was okay for our needs. It was like having a home away from home for a small family. Overall it was a great choice.

The location is perfect, walking to Pier Park instead of having to drive and find parking. Free use of beach chairs and umbrella also a plus.

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!

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.

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.

This was a really nice place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone.We went during October which was a great time to go.

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.

The beach experience was second to none!

We traveled to Panama City for Memorial Day weekend. I booked this hotel due to the fact that it was close to pier park. This could not have worked out better for us. We did not even have to use our car and get in all that traffic! We were able to walk a block to pier park which had lots of restaurants (Margaritaville and Beirgarden) and when we were done with dinner most of the restaurants had live music so we stayed out for the entertainment. My husband and I are not into the club scene so it was nice to have live entertainment without the club scene. We needed to do some shopping and all the shops were open late Saturday and Sunday so we were able to buy some nice things at dinner. We also were walking distance to the Calypso restaurant which also had great dining and live entertainment. The resort was very nice with a GREAT view of the ocean. We had so much room for the two if us! we had a separate bedroom, separte living room, nice furnished kitchen and two bathrooms...for the price it was incredible! The resort provided chairs on the beach which was convenient. You have to go down and reserve one for the day and we were told they were first come first serve but even as crowded as it was we were able to get one both days of our trip. We are definately planning a trip back!! great location and clean resort for a low price!

The room was very nice and very large. There was a TV in every room. It was very clean. The only complaint that we had was that the air was not working Friday when we got there. We did not realize it till Sat morning, just thought the room had to cool down. Called the front office Sat morning and they got right on it. The air started working about lunch time and was off again about 6pm. Called the front office and they told me that it was the whole East Wing. Tripped the circuit and it began to work. The front office is great to deal with. We would definately go back!

Great location, but had daughter's flip flops stolen from pool while we were swimming! Don't leave at beach for that reason, but at the pool?? We also had someone write on our suv windows while it was parked in the parking deck.
