3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel property was nice. The room itself was the worst room I have stayed in. I have had cleaner rooms at other hotels. The carpet was super dirty I didn't even take my sandals off. The bed was disgusting. The cover was dirty and the sheets had holes and blood stains on them. I felt very uncomfortable. The only nice thing was the kitchen as it was well equipped. The bathrooms were nice also but a disappointing stay.

We had 8 adults and 3 children. Two of us got there early and checked the room out. We could already tell the couch was disgusting, pulled out sleeper and the springs were showing in the mattress, our feet were pitch black from the floors and the front desk asked "what do you want me to do about it?" I will never return to this hotel!

The condo had a wonderful view, even with just a gulf view in the second tower. The condo was spacious, clean, and in a great part of PCB. The hotel staff working the front desk was mediocre...definitely wouldn't call them overly friendly. The tiki bar near the beach and pool was great! Overall, our visit was wonderful. Would definitely stay here again.

Good stay. Need to have more restaurants closer. Needs to have either more pools or bigger ones.

I HAD A VERY BAD EXPERIENCE AT THIS HOTEL.I BOOKED THE ROOM FOR TWO NIGHTS FOR 202.98.HOWEVER THE HOTEL CHARGED ME ADDITIONAL FEES FOR DAMAGE WAIVER $40.00, 1 BEDROOM CLEAN FEE 105.00,REGISTRATION FEE20.00 AND RESERVATION FEE31.65 FOR A TOTAL OF196.65.I WAS OUTRAGED!!!!! I PAID DOUBLE FOR WHAT I BOOKED THE ROOM FOR!!!!!

The Cleaning, Reservation and Damage fees are rediculous for a two night stay.

Upon arriving there was a slight problem with the booking but was fixed promptly. After which the resort was great. Beach was clean pool was clean and hot tubs were hot. Room was very clean and had everything you would need. Overall great vacation!

Beware of the additional charges, we stayed 3 nights, thought was a good deal, then at check in was charged an additional 191.00 Cleaning, booking and misc fees

Hotel was great in appearance. Room showed some wear (carpets dingy, bed was firm). However, overall a very pleasant stay experience. Being just a few steps from the beach was very convenient. The facility was clean and facility very well manicured.

It was nice and comforting. Nice view. Nice condo.

The Gulf Coast of Florida has captivated millions with its unrivaled beauty, family-friendly entertainment and Southern charm. People who vacationed here as children with their families are continuing the tradition with their own families. Many people are making it a new tradition. Some are relocating to a place that many can only describe as paradise. With spellbinding scenery, countless outdoor activities and great shopping, golf and dining

Rented 3-br gulf front apt, great view and spacies rooms. However, no phone or internet service !!. Staff was rude and told me it was the condo owner who choose not hav phone or internet service. Rooms were not ready at 4:00 pm check in time! waited extra hour to get into the apt.. Requested a dish wash detergent never provided..

We stayed at the hotel and were very happy with our visit. Unfortunately, we were not able to expereince a lot of the amenities the resort had to offer because it was storming and we were under a tornado watch. So we basically spent all of our time in the room and didn't even get to benefit from being on the beach. The room was extremely comfortable and had everything you could need or ask for when staying away from home. It was clean, well kept, with quality decor, and kitchen was fully equipt. The only thing that we didn't like was having to walk across the street to get to our car (not that bad) and also the bed matress was somewhat worn out and a little uncomfortable. Other than that, we couldn't be held up by the weather in a better hotel room!

I loved this hotel. The rooms were great. Luxurious and well decorated. It was well equipped with all necessary extras to make my stay perfect. The room was super clean. The pool was a nice size, not too small. The location was great, it's located so that you can walk or drive either direction and find fun things. If you go to the beach you'll have multiple options for fun activities available to you. The water is clear and the sand is white! I used the gym and it was clean and well equipped. I recommend the Grand Panama to all and I WILL stay at the GP next time I visit Panama City Beach.

Beautiful white sand beach and blue-green water. Light surf great for swimming, playing. The two-bedroom was great for two couples vacationing together. Extremely quiet and soundproof. Large enough for privacy with wonderful kitchen & common area. Beautiful oceanfront view from huge balcony - would suggest getting a higher floor if possible to reduce noise from the pool if you're going during a busy time. We were there week before fourth of July, lots of families with children. The main pool is too small for the size of the resort. Other pools available, but everyone wants to be beachfront. Very clean - could use some deep cleaning (like the half inch of dust on the ceiling fans!) Take your own beach chairs or rent the uncofortable cushioned woodframe ones for $35 per day. Also, for a luxury resort, higher quality bedsheets would have been good - especially if you get sunburned (you might want to bring some fabric softener to wash them in). We usually like less developed, quiter beach areas. Be prepared for very commercialized beach - referred to sometimes as the "Redneck Riviera". Lots of nearby attractions, especially for kids. Front desk staff were not very friendly and did not go out of their way to provide service or information - like we were interupting their gossip time. We had a great day renting a pontoon boat and visiting nearby Shell Island's isolated, undeveloped beaches. Also deep sea fishing on a local "head" boat was very good - our fresh caught red snapper was delicious!
