Dirtiest place I've ever stayed in. Upon arrival with my family, we were told that the tv was broke but a new one was sitting on the coffee table in front of the broke one. I had to call the property manager about:

Couldn't take showers because there was black nasty mold all over each of the shower curtain liners. No knob on the master bath to even turn the shower on (really !)The air filters in the kitchen were an inch thick in dust and dirt. Every rug in the whole condo was filthy and have never been vacuumed or shook. I have pictures of all of this but no way to put them in here. The bottom drawers in both bathrooms were broke and off kilter. No bath mats. All three comforters on the beds were stained and filthy. I had to call and wait to get all of these things done. Manager "Paula" didn't seem to be surprised at all about any of this. Stepped in something sticky on the floor under the bar . This place has not been cleaned in so long. I emailed the owner and asked him to call me before I wrote a review and he never called. I suspect he hasn't been to his unit in a very long time. Gross. Don't stay here. Too many places in Panama Beach to stay to put up with this place! I had the unit number in this review so people would know which one and they made me remove it!

The condo itself was very nice and clean but..........

  • 4 of 5

The condo was nice and clean but the hotel itself needs some TLC, there is no lobby, the courtyard has nothing but rocks and ugly plastic plants and no color or decor, the same "under construction and renovation " signs were there 5 years ago when i last stayed there and i didn't see any improvements at all, but on the bright side the condo was beautiful and i love the huge balconies and pool!👍𣐽򒨊

Wonderful Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The condo/grounds were great. I understand the duties of the security and are greatful they were there but they need to take it down a notch. I pulled into the parking lot, went straight up to see if the condo was clean, it was not, I came right back down. I was out of the car maybe 4-5 minutes. There was a ticket on my car!! They need to give people time to get checked in and place their parking pass on the car before they write you a ticket. Other than that, great vacation.

Our week in this unit was absolutely perfect. The unit is spacious and laid out very well with lots of sitting areas. The view was spectacular at sunset on the large balcony. The Watercrest is maintained very well and is kept clean. By 10:00 p.m.each evening the complex was very quiet and peaceful. We liked this as we were usually sitting out on the balcony enjoying some wine. We definitely plan to go back.

Amazing View.....

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The unit was very nice and clean. The master bed was so comfortable and king size. The unit was very large. It easily would sleep, 8-10. It was only my boyfriend and I, so the unit was very large for just us. We served dinner for a group of friends with children, which were staying at regency, and they came to our unit because of size. They were so shocked with how nice the unit was, and they paid the same price for Recency Towers. They said their condo was dated. The view was, unbelievable. I mean, wow. It was so romantic. The condo staff were always busy. The security staff were nice. It was a well kept facility. We were close enough to the strip but far enough away to enjoy the breeze, quiet, etc. To rent a jet ski and order beach photos was literally directly across from the hotel, on the beach. It was so convenient.

I will say, if you arrive early, make sure you put your parking pass in your car immediately. There are tow signs everywhere.

Had a great time and loved this unit.
