“Great Views”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Units at the Wyndham can be booked directly with the company or through individual owners. Since ours was done through the latter, I will not comment on the specifics of the unit itself (amenities, cleanliness, etc.) except to say that our 2 bedroom/2 bathroom end unit was spacious enough for 4 adults and 3 young children and that the master bedroom boasted a jacuzzi and a bay window with incredible views of the gulf! Happily, being on the end of the hall also made our stay a quieter one.

As for the resort itself, Wyndham is located right on Front Beach Road, which is a very busy thoroughfare during the summer. As another reviewer noted, check-in is on one side of the street (the north side) while the rooms are on the other. Also on the north side are the parking structure and one of the pools. Guests can traverse between the two sides via an enclosed "sky bridge" on the 3rd floor. I found this set up to be a little cumbersome, especially since on any given day, at least one of the elevators going to/from the 3rd floor was not working.

The resort is nice - I would not say "luxury," as the resort bills itself. We found the elevators to be generally slow (one of the four was out of service, apparently a renovation project). Towels were not offered at the pool, and the security guard at the gate would not allow us to bring in our insulated lunchbox, which held only bottles of water. We transferred the water bottles into a beach bag, which he allowed, but not the lunchbox. "No coolers," was all he would say.

Despite these minor inconveniences, our family enjoyed ourselves as the beaches were what we came for, and they are beautiful and clean. There are many touristy restaurants and stores along Front Beach Road. There are many less so along Panama City Beach Parkway (a.k.a. Back Beach Road or Hwy 98), which is two streets north of Front Beach Road and runs parallel to it.

Thank you for such a thorough review. You are right, it can be tough to get around our property. I recommend Wyndham guests and owners use our complimentary valet so you don't have to traverse the property via the Sky Bridge.

One thing to note for others reading this review. Not all tubs are jacuzzi tubs. We have a handful of them, but not every room comes with that.

But all of our rooms are gulf front, so regardless of which one you stay in you will have an incredible view!

We loved out 1 bedroom suite. It had everything we would have if we were at home. Very nice and spacious. The beach view we awesome! The only negative thing was when we rented the chairs on the beach there were people that would setup their chairs and umbrellas up right in front of us. When we asked the hut attendant Maryann about it she offered to move us but she was not able to do anythingabout people doing that. I think the Wyndam should allow the attendants to enforce this if their guest rent the chairs. Maryann was awesome the whole week we were there. She was always friendly and always asking if we needed anything. Thanks Maryann for making our days at the beach awesome!!!

Thanks for recognizing Maryann! I'll be sure to show her your nice review.

Good feedback on the beach chairs. Unfortunately Wyndham does not own the beach, so we're unable to enforce rules/policies out there. Thankfully people like Maryann can help make up for others who might not be as considerate.

We loved our 3br/3 bath presidential reserve condo. The location on the beach was perfect for us and our family of 6. Check-in is very confusing because you register on one side of the street and drop-off on another. The signage was not very helpful. While friendly, the staff failed on a few points to give us helpful information. There are things we didn't know to ask about, that would have helped navigate the building efficiently. Also, there is no wi-fi in the rooms. You must go to the sky bridge or Starbucks. There is an ether net located in the room, but ours was not stored in the TV cabinet as the literature stated. We ended up finding it behind the couch. Overall, we had a great time!

Thank you Melly for your review. Our site is confusing to get around. I recommend that Wyndham guests and owners take advantage of our complimentary valet that can allow you to pick-up/drop-off your car on the same side of the property as the rooms. Self-parking is an option, but the garage is across the street and finding the Sky Bridge on the 3rd floor can be difficult.

I hope you can come back and visit us again soon!

Fun vacation but we noticed on two occasions due to weather the pools were closed. Once bad weather moved out, both pools remained closed from 6pm till the next morning because of "potential storms". In addition to this someone broke some glass on the pool deck. Due to this they closed the entire pool deck which consists of two separate pools and a hot tub. Two separate escalators were not working the entire week and the hot tub was cold for 3 days. There was a lot of hype by those working at the resort about a movie in the pool for the kids in Wed evening...because of rain shower 3 hours before they moved it inside to the lobby on a 32 inch. disappointing many children and parents. We weren't allowed to take a lunch box size cooler bag into any pool. Had to leave my 2 year old sons juice and snacks outside pool area.

I'm so sorry for the challenges you faced while staying with us. We close the pools for 30 minutes when lightning is within 10 miles. Sometimes this can lead to long closures if storms are in the area.

This Wyndham property it in tip top shape. Everything was clean and well taken care of. All of the housekeeping staff were very nice and always said hello, I really appreciated that! Every condo has a beach beautiful beach view! Love to be able to sit and watch my teenagers on the beach. The kitchen was very well stocked, so nice to have a few extra dishes and silverware. Washer and Dryer were new and worked well. Bed were very comfortable. A lot to do right on the beach, parasailing, waverunner, chair rentals, I only have two complaints.... poor water pressure in the showers, water pressure for the bathtub was great though. And I sure wish that there was WIFI in the rooms, internet is available with cable. All and all a fantastic week and I wouldn't hesitate to return!!

Room Tip: Take your own beach chair to the beach, Renting them is $20.

As a Wyndham owner I was impressed by the condition of this beach front facility. It is a very busy location but the staff keeps the place clean and well kept. Liked that all rooms faced the water. Enjoyed my morning coffee from the full kitchen while watching the waves from the balcony. Our boys had their own room and bath. Very convenient to be able to do laundry during our week here. The skywalk makes it much safer for getting to pool and Starbucks. Nice location near restaurants and things for the kids to do.

I'm happy to hear that you think the property was clean and well-kept. All of our rooms have balconies overlooking the gulf so it's the perfect place to drink your coffee in the morning before it gets hot!

My husband and I went on our wedding anniversary and even though it was a 6 hour drive, it was well worth it. We were on the 18th floor which had some AMAZING sunrise/sunset views. We arrived later in the evening and the front desk staff were very friendly. Matt was our resort host and answered all questions we had about the surroundings. The room was BEAUTIFUL. I thought it was only a 1 bedroom deluxe unit but it had a master bedroom/bathroom, a set of bunk beds, and an extra bathroom with a full kitchen. We were able to walk to a restaurant called Sharky's for drinks and dinner. Also, most of the local restaurants deliver so we really didn't have to leave the resort but wanted to see the pier!

Room Tip: The higher the better!
