The property was just like it seems in all the photos. It was very nice and I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone! Thanks for the great visit!
We have very mixed feelings writing this review. There were some things we loved. Gorgeous view; doesn't directly face the Gulf, but easy to see from inside the unit and from balcony. Furnishings were overall comfortable (except for the wicker chairs at the high top dining table) and plenty of room for four of us. Nice washer and dryer. Outdoor pool was awesome; nice having option for food/drinks at pool. A number of things were annoying. VRBO ad lists very reasonable price. Our 7 night stay cost much more when you add fees charged by owner and amenity fee (not cheap) that goes to the facility. Parking - facility has large parking ramp; most units have assigned parking spaces. This unit does not. Finding parking a challenge over the Labor Day weekend. Plus, parking structure is cramped; two vehicles could not make turns at the same time, many turns to get to the tenth floor. When we arrived, the balcony furniture was sitting in the living room. A hurricane passed the prior day, but we felt that someone could have put the furniture back outside before our arrival. Plus, the place was (overall) clean but disheveled. Chairs were askew, beds were rumpled, lamp shades weren't straight. Load of dirty dishes in dishwasher. Wifi log-in info sent to us was incorrect. Called Tech Support and they called back a couple days (yes...days) later with correct log-in info. Felt very 'nickle and dimed'. No extra toilet paper (very little on the rolls); towels extremely small and cheap; needed three pillows they were so thin; no extra garbage bags; no extra anything. Instructions said there wouldn't be extra paper products but thought we'd at least start with a full roll of tp. Unit needs some TLC...microwave handle is broken, some walls need to be painted (marked up noticeably), kitchen countertop is cracked, etc. Facility also a mix of good and bad. Outdoor pool awesome. Indoor pool looked very green; no way getting in that water. Amenity fee included fitness room. Most equipment was broken and dangerous to use. Claimed to be remodeling; but no evidence of any remodeling during week. Water leak at doors to parking ramp all week; couldn't get to car without going through puddles. Elevators took a long time over the Labor Day weekend; otherwise not bad. People were out on their balconies screaming for hours the first couple nights (yes, screaming for no particular reason). Quiet rest of the week.
While our stay at Shores of Panama did have some positives, the negatives will likely impact our choice to stay elsewhere when we visit next time. The pool on the grounds was very nice and the location was great. We were aware of the additional fee to use the pool and have beach access and while it would have been nice for that to be included with the stay, we do understand the need for a fee to maintain that piece of the property. Our unit however was not so nice. Upon arrival, we were very surprised that the unit did not appear near as nice as it did in the pictures. The unit had several things needing repair (microwave handle, light in bedroom was completely detached from fan, scratches on wall, outdated patio furniture, mold on shower curtain in bedroom, kitchen pantry door would not close, and areas of the flooring needed to be fixed) but the biggest disappointment was the lack of cleanliness. There were boogers on the mattress cover in plain sight and we found a used condom under that same mattress. The floors under the fold out bed had not been swept in no telling how long and the broom that was left in the unit was in such poor shape that we couldn't use it to clean up very well throughout the week. We did have to buy a dish rag and towel in order to do dishes as none were left. We did call the owners and they did eventually return our call (after several hours and even a stop by the front desk) and they did send housekeeping up to change the bed clothes (on that one bed) but for $2200, we expected a lot more; we expected clean and a more maintained unit than it was. Again, we did enjoy the pool and the location, but I'm not sure that we can get past the negatives to stay at or recommend Shores of Panama again.
Property was exactly as described in the listing. Very clean. Fast to book. Agent was prompt with booking info, answered all our questions, was easy to reach by e mail and phone. The condo and the whole complex is very clean and very well taken care of. The outdoor pool was excellent for kids and extra large spa was great treat for adults. We have 6 kids raging from 9 to 14 years old. Beach area is well maintained, offered plenty of activities just feet from the condo complex. Beach chairs were not included in the rental, but we just sat by the pool, so it was not an issue for us. It was raining one of the days we were there, so the indoor pool was great amenity to have with kids. They LOVED all the pools! The condo complex was within minutes from nearest Walmart and lots of tourist gift shops and activities. Multiple restaurants within walking distance. We saved tons of money by cooking at the condo. I was surprised at how well stocked was the kitchen. Dozens of pots and pans, bows, utensils. They even had baking ware, and toaster, and a coffeemaker. We went to Hooked and Sharky's restaurants. They were both great, but we just loved Sharky's. Raw oysters were amazing there. Over all would definitely recommend to family and friends. Thanks for unforgettable vacation!
We very much enjoyed our stay in a 3BR condo that we rented from vrbo.com, which helped make it even more of a value since to got a better price. Everything was pretty new and updated. The pools were nice and the beach was nice too. Great view from the balcony. Nice staff. Saw that the communal areas were cleaned every day and they were doing some updating to landscaping and pools, which is good to see they care about the property.
Stayed a week and loved the location (not quite as busy part of the beach, but close to all) Most impressed with the deluxe / custom interiors and finishes. View of Gulf is stunning. Bedding was awesome. Pool was great -- used jacuzzi daily and the fitness center. All good . . . only thing missing was coffee -- bring your own for the room . . . other than that, 5-star!
