Grand Panama Beach Resort
Reviewed 26 November 2011

I recommend the Grand Panama Beach Resort to anyone that wants the feel of home while on vacation. The location is on the quieter end of Front Beach Road which made our stay more relaxing. Check-in along with check-out was 5 minutes or less. The condo was stocked with plenty of linens for our four night stay along with ample cookware, eating and cooking utensils, and dishes. The condo was SPOTLESS!!! We stayed in Tower 2, which is across from the beach, with a perfect view of the beach. Our only complaint was the business center is not a "true" business center. You might get lucky and have a condo with Wi-Fi connection without needing a password from a condo owner. Unfortunately, we were not that lucky and were unable to use our laptop in the condo. The business center does have Wi-Fi, but does not have any desk top computers or printers for those that need these items. The business center consists of a large room with a desk and a couple of table and chairs. Wi-Fi is available in common areas as pools, business center, and lobbies. Otherwise, for this slight inconvenience this trip to PCB was the most comfortable stay that my husband and I have had on our numerous trips to PCB, FL. We will be going back to this location for the feel of home while on vacation.

Room Tip: If you would like to use a laptop in a condo I recommend bringing a wireless internet connect card.

I just shared a three bedroom condo with two other couples at the Grand Panama, and we weren't disappointed. It was clean and spacious with three bedrooms and three bathrooms with a bonus bunk bed for the kids. Great views from our balcony made for amazing sunsets and sunrises. Even though we stayed in Tower 2, we still had a partial view of the beach. Also, appreciated the washer/dryer in our room which made laundry an easy task. Lastly, we liked the easy access parking access. Overall, we would definitely stay here again, but probably in Tower 1 facing the water.

The Grand Panama Beach Resort is an excellent choice for singles, couples, and families alike. The rooms are very spacious, well appointed with wash/dryer, full sized kitchens, dinning area, separate access to balcony from living room and bed room. I'd recommed staying in tower #1 (the Grand tower) which gives full gulf front views. The Grand Panama is the place to be.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views.

LOCATION: Great location. It is located on the beach and in the middle of all kinds of things to see and do.
EXTERIOR: The exterior of the resort is well maintained. The landscape is nice and they have exterior speakers around the pool area. There are two buildings. Building 1 is directly on the beach and Building 2 is across the road with a connecting overhead walkway. The office and parking garage are under Building 2. Both buildings have a nice size pool and deck area with kiddie pool and hot tub. Every room has a view of the Gulf regardless of which building you are in. The beach was clean and you could rent beach chairs and umbrellas.
INTERIOR: The rooms are exterior entrance but are well lit at night. Being October is was not crowded so at night it was not noisy. There are three elevators in Building 2. Each level has a trash chute for dumping your trash. The fitness center had a couple of treadmills, elliptical, bikes, all with their own television monitor attached, free weights, a couple weight machines, and exercise mats. There was also a bigger television mounted on the wall. It also had bathrooms and water fountains.
STAFF: Check-in was quick and painless. It only took me about 5 minutes to check in. Resort staff was polite and efficient. I called down once because of a maintenance issue and they had it repaired within a couple of hours.
ROOM: Our unit was very clean and well decorated. We had a one bedroom with bunk bed. Both bathrooms were clean and stocked with towels, washcloths, toilet paper and soaps. The bathroom in the bedroom had a nice walk-in shower. Water pressure was nice and there was plenty of hot water. The bunk bed is in an alcove in the hallway. Our daughter loved it! She slept in the top bunk and used the bottom one for her stuffed animals and suitcase. The kitchen was well laid out and had plenty of plates, glasses, and other dishes. Plenty of channels to select from on the television and the unit even had a wireless router for the internet which, surprisingly, was relatively fast. Much faster than the hotel we stayed in going down. Check-out took about 20 seconds and the staff wished us a safe trip home.

This resort was well worth the money and centrally located to restaurants, attractions, and shopping. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

The rooms are very nicely decorated. The furnishings are quality. Granite counters, clean rooms. Felt like home. We loved it. Parking is easy and beach access was simple. Kids loved the pool on the beach. There are two pools for each tower. We were in Tower 2.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Grand Panama Beach Resort Tues Sept 6th through Fri Sept 9th 2011. We were booked for a one bedroom one bath in the 2nd tower (across the street from the gulf) so we stayed there the 1st night. It was very clean and very spacious. After one night in tower 2 we upgraded to tower 1 on the gulf due to wanting a better view of the water. If you have the chance definitely stay in tower 1 as the views are absolutely beautiful. We had a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom on the 19th floor gulf front. This resort is relatively new and has a nice work out room (in tower 2) and a bar (which wasn't open while we were there). Nikki in the office was wonderful on upgrading us and the entire staff was very nice. KEEP IN MIND this resort is NOT a hotel; it's condo's that are fully furnished. There's no free breakfast or any place on the premise for food. However, all the units have large kitchens with granite countertops and washers and dryers. We will definitely go back to Grand Panama Beach Resort!!

We visited Grand Panama Beach Resort for 7 days during the week of August 1, 2011.
NOT AS ADVERTISED!
First of all we rented a 3BR, 3bath unit and turns out there was only 2 baths. Each bedroom was suppose to have a King bed, nope, 1 BR had King and the others were queens. The temp in the rooms never went below 80 degrees until after midnight. I called and maintenance was sent up to check the freon. The guy said the freon was good and the unit was "doing the best it can do". During the middle of the day the temp stayed at 85 and above.
There was also an "ant" problem. The kitchen area was overrun with the little critters.
Another big issue was lack of Internet Access in and around the condos. When we booked, we were told that there was wireless internet access, but the only connectivity we found was near the pool area and across the street in the business center. I am on call at work pretty much 24/7 and whenever we had a problem at work I had to go across to the Business center.
Worse $2000 I ever spent. We will not return to Grand Panama Beach Resort!!!!!

I apoligize for the frustration and inconvenience while on your vacation. I will look into this and do everything possible to prevent it from happening in the future. I realize you spent a lot of money to stay with us and ask that you give us a chance to try and make it up to you. If you decide to give us another chance please contact me directly. We do strive to ensure that our guest have enjoyable vacations when they stay with us.
