Beautiful condo and resort!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Shores of Panama! The condo was spacious for our group of 8 and was beautiful! The view of the pool and ocean were fantastic! The lagoon pool was so much fun with the lively music and the Shores of Panama staff friendly and helpful. And the beaches were well maintained and gorgeous! The owner of the condo was great to work with too! Thanks Fidele for renting your beautiful condo to us for a week we will never forget!

Great stay. Beautifully decorated. Great location. Only con was the floor was absolutely disgusting. Turned our feet black in 30 mins. Owner was great to deal with. Very prompt. Not his fault the cleaner didn't mop. It was brought to his attention. I would definitely rent from this owner again.

Pros and Cons, Relax by a nice pool with the kids

  • 3 of 5

Could have been four stars.

Pros: Nicely appointed and comfortable living room and bedroom furniture. Nice kitchen. Clean and spacious. It feels fairly new. Probably one of the best I've experienced in an ocean condo. Pool is huge, has flowing palm trees and little bridges, and is just a beautiful place to relax. Also has a DJ that plays fun music--my wife said she "loved the music". There's a great little Cajun seafood restaurant across the street. Also has an indoor pool and fitness facility.

Cons: 14th floor. Ocean view is to the right. The building is U shaped and the room is closer to the top of the U. Resort fees, as noted, are extra per day to use the pool or access the beach. I'm not used to that so it was confusing to figure out how to pay and unpleasant to me and my elderly in-laws who just wanted to walk out to the beach. 2 chairs on the patio were broken (2 were ok) and that was disappointing because we needed more seating. The hair dryer didn't work. Lady working front desk is unhelpful. Parking garage is hard to maneuver and time consuming. Overall not my thing but I can understand why some give it a good review.

Bottom Line: If the deck chairs hadn't been broken I would have given it 4 stars. We lost some time together as a family as a result as we like to read and talk and watch the ocean. It's a decent value given the price and otherwise nice furniture. In my opinion, it might be best suited to families with kids who want an enormous meandering pool that is mostly 3 feet deep. Not for people who prefer to be on a lower floor, have a full ocean view, and want to walk out to the beach without paying for that privilege.

Great location/great pool/great price

  • 4 of 5

The location of Shores of Panama is ideal. It is close to a state park (on the beach), next to Pineapple Willy's, a short drive to to Pier Park for great entertainment, food and shopping.

The unit was very nice. It could be even nicer if the cleaning crew actually cleaned! Fidele was very responsive with any concerns and that greatly appreciated. It made the stay more pleasant. I look forward to renting again. Spring Break 2017!

Couldn't Have Been Better

  • 5 of 5

Condo was beautiful, well kept and clean. Owner was very attentive and helpful and was easily reachable.

Amenities were nice and the beaches well kept. Grounds were always clean and felt very safe. Close proximity to a lot of attractions and shopping centers.

I would use this condo annually with my family .
