And I am a kid again. That how Splash Resort Condominiums makes you feel. There’s nothing like this place. If family vacation is what you’re looking for, if keeping the kids occupied is what you’re looking for, if getting wet is what you’re looking for, then SPLASH is what you’re looking for. This awesome resort opened in 2007 and it filled up right away. Why? Because it was perfect for what Panama City Beach is all about – families.
But let me tell you about the beach. The Splash beachfront is bigger than a football field wide and it’s all sugar white sand beach that graduates to the most beautiful... emerald color water that you’ll find anywhere. So just come on down and stretch out in the sun or take a dip in the Gulf. Here you can relax while the kids dive into big fun! There’s other neat little special things for you too. There’s so much around that you probably won’t want to leave the property.
Man is this place big! It isn’t just big, it’s bea-u-ti-ful. It’s got really interesting décor. If you didn’t look out the windows (which is hard to do because theres’ lots of great views of the beach) you’d think you were in an uptown condo. It’s really cool. And, it really makes the most of the room in every room. There’s plenty of space for all your beach stuff, but that’s not why you’ll pick this condo. It’s got great views. Plain and simple.
The LIVING ROOM sofa opens up as a queen sleeper. And there’s a nice love seat right next to it. The entertainment center, which is entertaining just to look at it has a big flat screen TV, looks like a 35” and don’t forget the DVD player. It lets you play movies when you’re beached out. Or, surf the net with the wireless connection.
The MASTER BEDROOM has a huge king size bed.. And the bed’s really comfortable. I laid down on it to see how it felt. Almost went to sleep. Really makes a statement. It’s really spacious. There’s another TV and a DVD player.
The 2nd MASTER has a king too! How about that!?! And it’s really roomy.
The 3rd Bedroom is a kid friendly suite that’s got a queen-sized bed and twin over twin bunks. It has its' own balcony for a place to get away.
The KITCHEN’s open and has everything that you need, so no matter whether you’re cooking your specialty or just fixing grilled cheese sandwiches you’ve got everything you need to please the family. There’s a big kitchen bar with four bar chairs so you can grab a quick bite before you hit the beach.
The DINING AREA has a big table, really comfortable so everyone’s got a seat at the table. No kid’s table here.
The LAUNDRY area’s located to make keeping everyone in clean clothes a breeze. These bedrooms and the pull out sleeper sofa in the living room making sleeping room for 10 with 3 complete full baths.
Hey, this condo is a big beautiful place at the beach. And it’s priced right too. You can’t go wrong at Splash. It’s got everything you want in a beach condo for a beach vacation anytime.

We loved SPLASH and I loved working with BestBeach Getaways, however the condo needs to TLC the carpets need to be replaced and some of the furnishings should be replaced also. I would rent from BestBeach Getaways again just not this room.

This was my first time using Best Beach Getaways, and most likely the last as well. The price for the condo at Splash was AMAZING, and the reservation process was a pleasure. However, when we arrived at the unit, we realized we got what we had paid for. The unit was run down, with many flaws. The furniture was ragged and broken, linens were torn and tattered (didn't have linens on two beds), light fixtures were broken, TV's didn't work, curtains hanging off rods, etc. The thing I was most disappointed with was the customer service. I called the company three times to report the major issues that needed to be addressed, and not once did anyone call me back. Yes, they did bring us linens for the beds that didn't have them, but other than that, they were non-existent. Most likely won't rent from this agency again, or recommend them to anyone either.
If you have small children (under 7) this place is for you. Otherwise forget it! There is one hot tub for the entire complex right next to the kids splash area so it's always filled with kids even at night. The luggage cart situation is uncontrolled & a nightmare. Because of no control people get a cart and keep it in their room so they'll have it when they need it,therefore you can never get one. The complex has four elevators--it needs eight. I would not recommend this property. Have stayed at much better places for less.
The condo was nice but the location wasn't great. The complex was really busy and to get up to the 14th floor was a nightmare. Our unit was also located next to the trash deposit shoot. Every time we arrived or exited the condo we would smell was disgusting. At times I thought the smell was lingering into the condo. The condo itself has a wonderful view of the beach but location wasn't great.
The laundry shoot was also next to our condo and someone (a guest) left a bloody white towel on the walkway. This was the most disgusting, especially being a kid friendly resort. That towel laid there for over 24 hours. Not even the cleaning staff picked it up.
I have stayed at Splash before and had a great experience. I brought my whole family down there telling them what a great place this was and I was embarrassed. I felt bad that there one vacation for the year had so many unenjoyable experiences.

The rooms we stayed in was a great place to stay, plenty of room and bathrooms. We have stayed here three times before, We are looking forward to returning again next year if the price is still affordable. The only thing I can complain about was there was black mold at the air vent in the bedroom and the carpet really needed to be cleaned, we had a 13 month old toddler crawling. Otherwise, great price, great room and great view. Thanks!
Upgrade,,,Need to be Renovated....the furniture n appliances.

Overall, a great place to stay with families of small children. Down the road away from the Spring break chaos but yet not to far from Pier Park. Kids pools and lazy river need to be warmer. Our 4 year old grand daughter wouldn't even go in them. The kiddie splash area was not working while we were there, but probably was not warm anyways. If these were heated, there probably would have been more room for adults in the hot tub which was always filled with children. The beach was great, parking easy, and units were beautiful and well equipped.
Water Park closed - BIG disappointment - no compensation given

Condo 3br/3b had plenty of room for our family 5
adults +1 two yr. Water park worked for l day
& even then water was COLD. The outside pool was warm only when the sun shined. Washer & dryer in condo was excessively noisy but worked. Wish we had been on a lower floor.
Tried several times to contact Best Beach Get
Aways, put on hold, no return call. Splash would not compensate because we used agency to
rent. Hope NO one will have our experience!!!

We stayed at this location in January and loved it! we pretty much had the entire place to our selves, rarely saw another person in the pool, nice for us w/ 2 kids. They had all the pools and kids areas open, so if you were daring enough to enter in the cold, you could:) but they had a great heated out door pool that we used, even when it was 50* out, it felt awesome! and the hot tub was really good too. Our one "major" complaint, was the internet and lack of area information when we got there, it too us a solid 3 day in order to get the internet working, and then upon arrival there was no information for us. ex. land line #, area attractions, maps...etc..... would have been nice to have a lil' welcome package, w/ some of those things included, and a tv guide, since there was no way of knowing what the local channels were. Other than those couple of things, the place was great, super clean, and loved it!!! looking forward to visiting again!
We checked air filter upon arrival and it was filthy (someone needs to change ASAP). Carpets need to be cleaned or replaced (too many stains) and we found trash on the floors around the beds & couch (did anyone vaccum). outside balcony needed to be mopped (very sticky with spilled drinks). Great location, great view, comfortable beds, and had everything we needed. Loved the floor plan. Condo itself needs more elevators, luggage carts & air conditioning on the crosswalk since it takes 20 minutes to get to your car.
