Our check in was delayed from tge start. When we did get it tge unut was not very ckean. Carpers were nit vacumed ,toothoaste spit on tgs mirror, walls were all marked up. we suspected the sheets in the master bed were not changed. But after we insisted a cleaning crew come back. They said the sheets erre fir a king bed and we had a queen so the sheets just looked sloppy. There was only 1 trash bag in the unit, the elevators were slow and we were on the 15th floor. Parking was a hassel as well. Once we settled in and got use to the place the veach, pool and tiki bar/snack hut were all nice. Read more

My family enjoyed our stay. The condo was nice and the resort was exceptional. The balcony was very spacious with terrific views. I would recommend this condo and resort. I would recommend the sofa to be replaced as the only improvement.

5 Stars to Southern Vacation Rentals, especially to Dawn, who took care of my reservations and all questions I had, and to Vanessa at the Panama City Beach office, who took care of all my needs the day I arrived. The condo was beautiful and we loved staying there. We especially liked the spacious balcony. All the beds, including the bunk beds, were very comfortable. We loved the resort: the room, the amenities & the parking. It was all beautiful and very well maintained. We will definently come back to stay.

We were here during spring break time and chose this condo because it advertised no college spring breakers. There was supposed to be increased security and violators of this policy would not be tolerated. The college spring breakers took over the hot tub and were the majority at this condo. The pools were also very cold. We could not swim in either of them. The hot tub nearest the beach was always packed, and the one at the other building was too cold to enjoy. We also called Southern vacation rentals several times to get an access card to get into the weight room and bottom floors of both of the condos. We received one follow-up call that they would look into it, and then 3 unreturned calls without ever receiving a card. We were able to use the weight room 1 time due to someone else letting us in. If we were on the ground floor, we would have to walk up inside the parking garage to the second floor where we were able to get on the elevator there. This was very dangerous due to the design of the garage with cars unable to see pedestrians that really should not be walking there. The room was nice with a very uncomfortable couch. The balcony was large with 2 loungers, but weather did not let us enjoy them very much!

We love Grand Panama. The unit we rented was not very clean. There were bugs in the kitchen, and it felt like previous tenants had smoked in the master bedroom. We all had trouble breathing. Read more

Beautiful beach condo!

We stayed at 1503 in the Grand at Grand Panama Beach Resort to celebrate my birthday and it was a beautiful condo with an amazing view of the beach. The bedrooms were cozy, the couch was comfortable, and everything worked well. Our only wish was that there was a light on the patio for playing late night card games. Overall, it was a great beach trip!!! Read more

Southern sincerely appreciates the time you spent describing your experience in this unit and we thank you for this review. Unfortunately, the lighting is an oridinance we must follow for our turtles. The Fish and Wildlife Turtle Watch require all beachfront property have installed approved turtle lights. Beachfront lighting can cause sea turtle hatchling mortality as they emerge from the nest and crawl to the sea and stop adult female turtles from coming ashore to nest. The emergence from the nest and crawl to the sea is one of the most critical periods of a sea turtle’s life. Hatchlings that do not quickly make it to the sea become food for ghost crabs and birds, or become dehydrated and may never reach the sea. Some types of beachfront lighting attract hatchlings and lead them away from their destination to the sea. Adult female sea turtles looking to nest have a tendency to avoid stretches of brightly illuminated beach. Reducing beachfront lighting results in hatchling turtles have a better chance of reaching the sea and adult female turtles having suitable habitat in which to lay nests. Lighting is one of the greatest threats to sea turtles on land. Again, thank you and we hope to see you again soon. Guest Services~

The initial intructions about how to get in the condo were confusing. A call was needed to get more info, which should have been sent by email. The email instructions were also confusing because the words and sentences were all run together and didn't make sense, so another call was needed. The condo itself was everything that was shown in the pictures, nice decor, great kitchen. It had more towels than expected. The icing on the cake was the surprise of washer/dryer in the condo. Which turned out to be needed more than expected. The kitchen lacked a regular frying pan, but everything else was supplied. I would have liked more towel racks, with 5 people and the potential for 8 in the condo, that means lots of towels to hang up. We had to move the big decor pieces from the shelves to store our beach towels and a few other items.
The best part and reason why we chose this place was the proximity to the beach and great pool, that realy rocked for the grandkids.
One unfortunate thing is that there were 3 different kinds of bugs in the kitchen. 2 each different and maybe water like bugs, but the other 2 the same were roach-like looking.
At the end of our stay June 9 & 10 the parking garage was a nightmare, packed with people looking for parking and not finding it, having to back up and go back down and out for parking. Read more

Thank you so much for submitting a review from your recent vacation and we were pleased to hear that the unit was enjoyed by all in the family. We do sincerely apologize if the Arrival Instructions were not clear and we have since updated this letter giving our Guest more details for a smoother check in. A regular frying pan will be delivered as suggested and we will look into the possibility of adding towels racks. Again, thank you for being a Southern Guest and we look forward to hosting your next vacation.

The condo was just as described. Beautiful kitchen, nice flat screens in all rooms. Plenty of towels. Huge balcony compared to where I have stayed before. Nice bartender/cook at the Tiki Bar. Food there was just as good as some of the nice restaurants we visited. Beautiful beach. Check in and out was easy and we felt secure on the property. I would stay on this property and in this unit again.
