Good rates considering location. Condo is old and not very clean and smells funny. Armbands provided for guests but the public comes here anyway and no one stops them. Great balcony view of pool and beach from E304. I'm glad I'm stayi ghere foronly2 nights.

I booked the Sunbird for only 2 nights through Book.it.com that advertised it for $169/night. By the time I paid taxes and fees, it was over $430. After booking, they charged another $150 for cleaning fees before they would give us the combination for keys. We were given unit 701 West, and the smell upon entering was terrible. The towels...

To begin, we made our first trip to Sunbird in 1993, it was a glorious gem on the Gulf of mexico. We started returning to The Sunbird in 2008. Making 5 consecutive trips with our two sons. Yes I understand time takes a toll on everything. However in the last two years I have seen major decline in the property....

Used booking.com. It said Total was $594.00 for 6 nights. They took the first nights payment to hold reservation which I expected. I subtracted my first night from the $594 and created my budget. They charged me 17% taxes when the tax rate for Panama City Bech is 6%. Is that even legal? I expected a deposit, but was charged...

I have stayed at the Sunbird for multiple stays and have found out the secret to success (the hard way). The key is who you rent from. The units are privately owned and are managed by a third party or through VRBO. Do yourself a favor and get yourself an "A" unit-largest with direct beach view (06 or 07) or...

We stayed in 105W and we loved this condo! We rented from VRBO and it was a very good value. The ground floor location is so convenient to everything we can't wait to stay here again!
