Great room pool and beach access other things not so great

  • 2 of 5

The room was great good size room we had 4 adults and 4 children and had plenty of room for all the pool was great and beach access was nice and easy to get to and from but now the bad the restraunt and bar by the pool were never opened while we were there the parking deck is tight and when I say tight I mean plan an getting a dentist or to on your vehical while there this particular unit does not come with a reserved space so you have to find a non reserved spot everytime and those are few and far between gour ahead and expect to spend 15 minutes going up and 15 minutes going down the parking deck everytime now for the worse I seen reviews about how bad the elevator wait was but thought maybe people where being to critical....... I was wrong we waited up to a hour at times to get on the elevator and I know people will say there is stairs but with 4 kids and everything you need at the beach it's impossible I would say expect to lose a quarter of your vacation on the elevators and the parking garage if you can find another room that's near the ground floor it's a great place to stay in would pay more to stay on the ground and give up the veiw in a heart beat

Beautiful but unaccommodating

  • 2 of 5

We were blown away by the beauty of the scenery. Our room was great. The pool was incredible. The beaches were great. But we paid top dollar, and the Shores of Panama were just so self serving and I felt like they went out of their way to let us know they could care less if we ever came back. When we arrived at our room none of our televisions worked, nor our wifi. We called Royal American Getaways, and they sent someone to the room as soon as they could. We got two of the three tv's working, and the third the man from RA contacted the maintenance men from the Shores of Panama. They clearly didn't want to help. They didn't even try the TV, and they said the Wifi we could just connect to the person above us. That lasted about as long as they could get out of the room, and it kicked us off. Royal American did credit us some money, which was very fair. And if it wasn't for RA I wouldn't give the Shores of Panama any stars. The parking was a disaster. They were even trying to be unhelpful in loading and unloading our vehicle. We love Panama City, and our room was nice, and the pools were great, but again, it was the most unaccommodating place I have EVER stayed, and that includes Motels.

Nice unit but several issues. But still had fun!

  • 3 of 5

The unit was nice overall just a few problems that we experienced during the stay. Kitchen faucet handle was broken when we arrived. The dryer does not heat, need to run a load through four times to get clothes fully dried. I think it's a result of a bird next in the vent. The wireless network was so intermittent that it made it impossible to do anything on the computer, phone, etc. The biggest frustration were 2 of the four elevators were constantly broken down making it forever to catch a ride up to the room. I realize this does not reflect on the room but notified this issue with Shores of Panama. Overall, everything else was manageable minus wifi. Made it difficult to work in room.

Very crowded condo and shoulder to shoulder people on the beach.

  • 2 of 5

The condo was spacious and we loved having the bunk room and the extra half bath, but the wifi was terrible. Our daughter couldn't even get online to complete assignments. The dryer took seven cycles to dry a load of clothes and the "resort" itself was crammed full of people. I doubt we'll ever consider this place again.

Beaches were beautiful!!

  • 2 of 5

First time staying at shores of panama. Unit was clean. Smelled like garbage outside. Not sure if that was coming from hotel or pineapple willys. Units mattresses were very hard. dissappointed after spending a lot for 3 nights that we had to then pay another fee just to get access to the beach for pool passes that we never got in because it said it was heated and it was far from that. Also the ad said the beach chairs were free and nope they only were going to give a voucher for 1 day. Very misleading. Would never stay here again. There are better options with no pool access fees!
