This was a nice condo unit, but it was not very insulated as other condo units. I could hear people moving chairs in the unit above mine. I was told it was age limit of 25 and up to book at this resort, but there were a lot of spring breakers that made it in there. The pool had to...

We stayed in Unit 806 at this property which was new to the rental market and a good value. We purchased the week as an "extra vacation" through RCI. The property is older, but unit was upgraded with tile in living area and granite in the kitchen. The furnishings were older but comfortable. Carpet in bedrooms was worn but clean....

We stayed at Sterling Reef over the past weekend, for 5 days. We were frankly dissapointed on how small the rooms were in comparison to other places we have stayed in PCB. On top of that there were lots of minor issue which added up to a place that is really not worth top dollar to stay at. The carpets...

We had a great stay at Sterling Beach. The view from the 12th floor was amazing. The condo was beautifully furnished and even had a 50" TV. The beach is to-die-for. We also appreciated the free wi-fi. There were free DVD rentals in the lobby, but the selection could have been better. The location was excellent, and the staff were...

My husband and I went to Panama City Beach in June and had a wonderful stay at this condo. The living room and master bedroom had a gorgeous view of the ocean and pool below.

In this life results come from the choices we make and these people choose to not tell you the truth. When they say your room is on 5 th floor it really means 8 th floor. We have wifi means it's extra$$$. The beds were absolutely terrible! The shower rod fell they said they would send maintenance to come replace...

We were there when I believe its considered "high season" so my first issue is with the elevators, how the builder would believe 2 elevators would serve that many condos is crazy...I highly suggest requesting a lower floor so you can walk down. Secondly, the pools are small and the fact that the building it literally 5 feet from it...

“The first floor rooms have the larger balconies.”

“All of these balconies face the gulf and look down on the pool. The higher the room, the longer trip on the elevator...remember that. Make sure to specify that you don't want bunks if need be (see above).”
