GREAT CONDO, CROWDED RESORT

  • 3 of 5
Rating Details:
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was somewhat unhappy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:
This review is in no way a reflection on for the booking process was easy and quite pleasant. The smartphone app was cool. For those who have booked with them before ask for a returning customer discount!

I left a detailed review of the resort itself on VRBO and TripAdvisor. This will be on the unit itself.

UNIT # 1511
The unit is nice and has more casual seating than most 1Br units at Shores of Panama. But besides the counter stools, there is only 2 chairs at the small dining table.

The kitchen has its issues:
- The dishwasher is not mounted to the cabinet/counter. The two rollers that roll out the shelf are gone and does not roll out. It does not clean well we had to run it twice each time.

- This unit sleeps 6, but has 4 bowls and 4 plates.

- The cookware was very well used. All of the non-stick coating was burned off and food was burned while cooking. I called the BTC office and they said the owner is the one that stocks the unit but they would bring some more over. They never did.

Here is what was in the unit during our visit:
- 3 saute pans, one had no handle
- 3 sauce pans, 1 had a lid
- 2 huge boiling pots, 1 lid
- silverware for 4 not 6
- 3 sharp cutting knives, 1 w/broken handle
- No griddle

- The guest bath shower did not drain. The master bath had the same problem. The cleaning people need to inspect that with every visit.

- There is no plunger in the unit. I called BTC to send us one, but sent someone over instead to unstop the toilet, Why spend the money to send a person and not leave a $15 plunger?

The complex itself has ALOT of issues, elevator wait times, garage issues, beach crowds and common area cleaniness. Not to mention the resort fee!

I will probably rent from again just not at this place. Hence why I won't recommend this property not because of BTC but of the complex itself.

Manager responded on 7/9/2014:

CONDO IS NICE, THE RESORT HAS SOME SERIOUS ISSUE THAT YOU NEED TO CONSIDER

  • 4 of 5
First off, I want to say this review is in no way a reflection on BookThatCondo.com as for as the booking process, that part was easy and quite pleasant. The smartphone app was cool. For those who have booked with them before ask for a returning customer discount!

There are too many units in this small piece of the beach. Do not let this concept get past you as the rental user, you will pay the price in frustration, money and time.

The beach was extremely crowded. Besides three rows of beach umbrellas stands and the mulitude of radios blasting different music forget the peace of the beach. The only plus is Pineapple Willy's, it's next door.

There are only 6 elevators for resort of 23 stories with 700+ units. The wait is 20-40 minutes. The small parking garage is attached but it is only 10 stories high. As you can imagine, loading and unloading if you are staying on floors 11-23 is a nightmare!

They charge a resort fee on top of the condo rental. This means you just paid a good deal of money to only LOOK at the ocean and pool in the summer. To actually use the pool, excercise room, and gain access to the beach, you have to pay an additional $27/day + tax (that's for a 1BR unit, 2BR are more). Do the math for your stay.

The pool is huge, but there are signs of rules about towels, chairs, and coolers, but everyone ignored them and no one was enforcing them. The only rule they enforced was refusing people to access the beach and pool without their wristband, the one you pay $27/day for.

The fast food containers, piled up pizza boxes for days in common areas are just another fact there are just too many floors and not enough personnel to keep it up nice.

The power went out for about third of the all units late in the afternoon on July 4th. Perhaps this was due to the the mass number of hair dryers turned on all at once getting ready to go out to eat and watch fireworks, who knows, but there was no power at all for almost an hour. The water pressure is minimal at best. Flushing toilets took two flushes every time to ensure it all went down. Showers and faucets were weak. Again, poor infrastructure design by the developer.

All that said, the condo itself is nice and has more casual seating than most 1Br units at Shores of Panama. We had a few issues with some cookware and the dishwasher. I trust BTC will correct those issues for future guests.

Reviewer Comments:
The location of this complex is very convenient. We didn't love the "u" shape of the complex, no privacy on the balcony at all and more limited views of the ocean. We arrived at 6 pm on Thurs and the "printer" was broken to get a resort wrist band so we could not use the amenities until after 9 AM the following day. The person at the desk commented "At least you saved on not paying for 1 day." I thought that was a poor response to guests not being able to use the pool or access the beach from the complex. This is a large complex with only 4 elevators, lots of waiting. The unit itself size was was good, but needs some basic maintenance & upgrading. My husband and I commented if they would spend a couple of thousand dollars it would take this unit from a 5 to a 10. Bedroom carpet is stained and feels old/cheap, dining room table was cheap with cheap uncomfortable chairs & bar stools and a handyman is needed for some repairs. Book that Condo was very easy to deal with good communication.

Manager responded on 6/14/2014:

THE ELEVATORS WERE HORRIBLE

Reviewer Comments:
Do not be in a hurry to ever leave your room or go anywhere for that matter because your wait time for an elevator is usually a 10 minute + wait. It was absolutely ridiculous! Also, you would have a packed elevator because everyone would try to squeeze on, because knowing it'd take forever waiting on another one, so it'd be nice to see some air conditioning in them because it's beyond hot having to stop at every floor & then be shoulder to shoulder. Also the parking garage can be a pain due to VERY tight spaces & even worse when your room doesn't have a reserved spot so you spend a lot of time searching for a place to park.

Manager responded on 6/2/2014:
Hi Misty, We understand how frustrating the elevators can be at all our resorts during the holidays, we're so sorry your experience did not fair well with them. We are glad you enjoyed your time in the condo and at the resort and would welcome you to stay again later this year when it's not as hectic. Please remember to let us know you're a Frequent Guest and we'll offer you that discount. Warm Regards, Your Book That Condo Team
