We have stayed via VRBO in the past. This weekend we used Bookit to reserve a room. We get there at midnight, had to check in 3 miles away. We get to our $250/night room- and it is like a $40 night stay. I was awake most the night thanks to mites in the bed (over 30 bites to prove...

This place is gulf front with access to the beach from the basement. It was a very nice place. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The pools were closed any time an area thunderstorm threatened, which was almost each night, but the gulf was right there and we spent a lot of time in the water. No places to eat on...

The unit I rented was quite a disappointment, especially for the money we spent! Check in was over a mile away for unit 2131: which is such a burden between 4pm and 6pm (check in time) on Panama City strip - there is our first hour wasted. but we endeavor to persevere and get checked in. The parking lot is...

Didn't know that these units are owned by individuals. The unit we were in hasn't been updated since the 70's. The carpets were stained and dirty, ceiling fans had a layer of black dust on the blades. We weren't comfortable sitting on the furniture. No wifi. Will not stay here again.

I love this condo. We have stayed here before at Emerald Beach resort and got another amazing beautiful clean condo with the spectacular view. But this was the first time we rented from Resort condo service on visitpcb.com. I was worried so much because I never rented from private owner, but Karen made everything so smooth. She replied all my...

My family and I take 2 trips per year. Usually to one to Mexico and one to Florida. We had an opportunity to visit condo 2035 this year and thought....why not!?!? First off, great location. Close to many eating establishments, shopping, etc... Secondly, easy check-in, parking and...the elevators are not as big a wait as publicized. Finally the room...Clean, Clean,...

We were just there for 5 days 4 nights. Too much up and down to get where you want to go. Park then go to third floor, up or down to get there, then across the sky walk and back down to lobby, cross through building to more elevators and go up to your condo. Absolutely no umbrellas at the...

We had switched over to this condo after some problems at another place. We were on the 25th floor. The view was spectacular and the condo was stunning. Each bedroom was perfect with very comfortable beds and the kitchen was awesome. The living room had plenty of seating for everyone to gather around. The patio was awesome and had a...

First & foremost, I wouldn't stay here again. We rented through a private owner & her condo was lovely. However, I'm going to rate this for just the resort and the reasons I wouldn't come back. 25 floors & only 4 elevators! Normally when people complain about elevators I think they are just short tempered. Nope. The elevator situation will...
