Read some reviews of issues with cleanliness...called before stay and was told that if I had any issues to call. Saw a few issues and called and issues were very quickly fixed by the manager(Impressive)! Condo, pool and ocean was awesome! My family and I will return to Calypso!

I am used to staying at Sandestin, usually renting through them. However, late in the season, we decided to go to Panama City instead. We have a big family and needed a bigger condo. We also wanted to stay at Calypso, because of its proximity to Pier Park. The last 3 BR unit available was thru Best Beach Getaways. The place was dirty and it was clear that the BBG only had interest in getting payors in and getting them out. Sex stains on comforters, misleading amenities advertised, hair and an old paper plate in the beds, main DVD player did not work despite advertising free DVD rentals (which was also not true). BBG did say they were sorry a lot, but we slept without a comforter the whole trip. Never came back with a clean comforter or to check on us. If this unit is only available thru BBG, would definitely not recommend it to anyone.

We enjoyed the location of this unit! We easily walked over to Pier Park every evening where there were so many places to shop and eat! The beach is crazily busy with people and we often opted for the pool instead (where you have to be there early to get a chair!) It was very clean but is located right next to the trash chute for the floor (since it's on the end), so often there was an odor outside but not inside and noises from people using it. The living room furniture is not what was pictured in the ad, and we did address this with the company. They said they are taking care of it with the owner. The best beach getaway people are great to work with! Overall, we enjoyed this unit and the experience!
"Unit 1005 , nice view, nice pools, great location"

We stayed at Calypso for a week. Obviously everyone stays Saturday through Saturday because we arrived around 7pm and it took us nearly an hour to get a luggage cart and wait in line for one of the 3 elevators to get to our condo on the 10th floor. The rest of the week we had no trouble getting an elevator. The kids ( 11 and 13) really enjoyed the pools and it was nice being able to watch them from our balcony. I especially enjoyed watching the young guys set up the chairs and umbrellas every morning lol.. The location of Calypso is in my opinion the best you can get at PCB especially if you plan to spend much time at Pier Park, which we did. It's in walking distance. That being said, my complaints are with the particular condo we rented and not the resort itself. I hd to spend $75 on cleaning supplies and an hour cleaning our condo before I would even unpack our bags. The floors were filthy and our feet were black after walking across the condo. The stove top and counters were just wiped over very quickly it seemed and none of the cleaning supplies they advertised would be there were actually there. We had to buy trash bags, laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid, cascade, and a comforter and blankets for the kids to use on the sofa bed!!! We did find sheets to use on the sofa bed , but after searching high and low , there was no blanket for the children to cover up with. For the price we paid, plus it being advertised as able to sleep up to six people , I would've thought some type of covers would be provided. Also the toilet in the half bath did not work so we all had to share a bathroom for the week which meant the kids having to come through our bedroom and wake us up to use the restroom during the night. Not really a big deal, but I called 3 times and let them know the toilet was broken and they never sent anyone to fix it. However, we will stay at Calypso again, just in a different and larger unit! Beautiful Resort, Great location.

The condo could use an update for sure. The couches were stained and the coffee table was falling apart. The kitchen could use a better variety of pots and some. Cooking was a hassle most of the time and some of the pan handles were loose. We loved the layout and the blankets and were pleased with all the extra pillows and blankets in the closets. You don't find that in many rentals. Our biggest complaint was just the unit could use a fresh coat of paint a good carpet cleaning and updated living room furniture. Another thing we disliked and this is the resorts doing was the pools were to cold to swim in the first 5 days of our vacation because they had turned off the heat to the pools.

This is our 3rd stay at the Calypso.Right across street from Pier Park (restaurants, shopping, movies) & next to the Pier make this my fave place to stay. I love this location, not as crazy as la Vela area. The resort itself is very clean, safe, beautiful,... The pool is strict on having your bands to get in & this is a good thing. It keeps the drifters from the beach using our amenities. There is a large tiki bar too!....This is first time renting from this company. Room in need of a good cleaning...could not turn on fan in one bedroom because of dust piled up & hanging off blades,ripped bedspread in another room,pink mildew in corners of bathrooms,underneath beds were not vacuumed. Not sure why check in is @ 4pm since the room was cleaned so quickly.I would stay in this condo again if they guaranteed it to be cleaner.

After driving 15 hours we went to the unit at 4:05 the unit. Was not cleaned yet. So we called the office and where told they would get on it and call us when it was ready. At 5:30 the unit still was not touched. We called and left messages for them to call us and no call back. Finely they started cleaning and we got in unit at 7:30pm. The units carpet is dirty and the units needs a GOOD cleaning! If unit is not going to ready at check in a call to let you know would be nice.

We checked in and found a couple of things that needed attention. Everything was taken care of right away. If You are looking for a condo in this area this is it. Beatufil view clean and well taken care of units. We have already booked again for next year. You can walk to Pier Park for places to eat or shop and so many good places to eat right in this area. If you like to fish the Peir is a short block away. We had some friends visit and they are booking next year. Would recomed booking early if you want a beatufil place to stay.

The kitchen department gets an F. Lacking in utensils , beverage pitchers, pots and pans...don't expect to cook. The outdoor furniture is old pot metal and needs replacing. It is dangerous. The kitchen barstools are in need of replacement. The sleeper sofa is terrible to sleep on - like sleeping on a thin spring. The carpet needed cleaning.

We were very disappointed with the lack of cleanliness in our room, considering the high price we paid for it. There were food crumbs in the couch and on the floor. There were also roaches in the room. The shower in the master bath had black junk all around the door which washed onto your feet during every shower. In one of the bedrooms the light in the ceiling would only work if you took the cover off of it and when we called to have someone to fix it they acted like it wouldn't be a priority even though there was no light in the room. We requested more towels because there were only enough for each guest to shower for one day so we were having to do laundry everyday, but no one ever brought us any. I was told by Best Beach Getaways that they would charge us $10.00 for any car passes over 2, but the management at Calypso told us that there was no charge for them and we could have as many as we wanted FREE. As far as Calypso as a whole, we were fairly pleased....especially with the location. However, the pools are too small and don't open until 9am. And it seemed that the tiki bar next to the pool stayed closed a lot more than it stayed open. I would probably stay at Calypso again, but will not rent through Best Beach Getaways nor will I rent this particular room.
