Splash Resort Condominiums Panama City Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Great view. The overall décor was nice and the artwork of antique toys and old Florida travel posters combined with the beachy paint colors gave it a good feel. This was a 1-bed condo with sleeper sofa and bunk-beds. The bedroom was spacious and the bed was comfortable although bedding looked pretty care-worn. The furniture in the living room however was very worn and dirty AND there was not enough linens to make the sleeper sofa let alone having an extra blanket. We ended buying a blow-up mattress and extra pillows at a discount store. The bathtub also looked very dirty upon arrival so we bought our own favorite brand of bathtub cleaner and scrubbed it out. Sad thing is that this could be a truly spectacular unit if the furniture and appliances were upgraded and adequate bedding were supplied as well as providing some basic cleaning equipment. We had a really nice stay but that had more to do with what we did with the place more than how it looked when we arrived. The Bar/Grill leaves quite a bit to be desired. Hours of operation are inconsistent and food choices are limited. Understand that these are condos but this is on the West end of the beach and there are some times when you don't want to cook or fight all the crowds to grab a bite to eat.

We rented this condo from Sat to Sat. Start by saying the room was very nice and pleasant. The Beach where the hotel was way over crowded. Every morning had to walk out to the far right where the private beach was. Alot more room there and not over crowded. We enjoyed that! Now the Customer Service and security. Customer service does not exist. There are only a handful of people running this huge property. 1 front desk, 2 repair people, 1 HOA and 1 security guy. That is all you see every time you are out and about. Pool is way over crowded. No personal space. Security guy is a joke. Resort staff doesnt know policies for pool as a unit. 1 guy says 12 and over. Another person says 12 and under dont need a wrist band. Then 1 guy says you dont need a wrist band to be in the pool area while another says you do. That effects us since we only have 4 wrist bands. 2 adults, 17, 12, 12, 10 and 3. Total joke. Got into it with security personal. Dont have time for this. We all work hard for our money and dont need this petty stuff bothering us. Way over priced for the service. We wanted to try this new resort but shoulve stayed with our other home away from home, EDGEWATER... Also has anyone seen the bowling alley? That doesnt exist. OUR FAMILY OF 7, WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESORT.

I rented this through a private ownership company and not the main one on location. We stayed in room 501 in the East Tower. We knew before getting there check-in was at 3pm, and check-out was at 10am. We had no problem getting in our room shortly after 3 at our arrival. It was a very nice 3 room/ 3 bathroom condo with cute decor and amazing views from everywhere including all 3 balconies and a giant window in the living room/eating area. It was clean and comfortable. The furniture and all tile floor were perfect for the beach. We had 3 maintenance issues during our 7 night stay, which were all addressed very fast (our washer/dryer knobs fell off and needed a pair of plyers to work, we were welcomed with no parking passes, and our fire alarms all started going off at 1:45 am for no reason). The worst thing about Splash was the elevator situation and trying to use them to get your stuff to your room and vise versa. Being on the 5th floor, we occaisionally used the stairs. We went July 5-12, so I was worried about everything being super crowded, but was pleasantly surprised. The lazy river was not very large and was sometimes on the crowded side, but was frequently not very crowded at all. A few times, we were practically the only family there. There is a small pool attached to the lazy river and then two more small pools which also never seemed overly crowded. My 8 year old enjoyed the main splash pad area, but my 4 and 6 year olds enjoyed it the most. Most of the time, it was not crowded at all. The one hot tub was the only thing that always seemed crowded and was mostly inhabited by small children. There was a shaved ice stand taking cash only located by the splash area selling them for $4 and $6 sizes.There was also a tiny gift ship only accepting credit/debit cards. There were also grills available for use, but I never saw anyone use them. On the beach, some days were more crowded than others, but it never felt too crowded to me. The facilities seemed in good condition to me. We did not try any of the scheduled activities for the kids, so I cannot comment on any of them. All people 12 and up need to wear their arm bands at all times when using facilities.

We booked thru panhandle getaways and had a 2.5/2 on the 6th floor. The condo was excellent! Very clean and well kept. It had everything we needed. The views were spectacular! We didn't have any issues with the pool area. The kids enjoyed going between the pools and the beach and had fun at both. It was a bit crowded but it is peak season so that was expected. I would stay here again.

I'll try to make this as short as possible, but nowhere near sweet. We have been here since Friday. (Only bc everything else is full) 1. We had to wait 4 hours for our room to be "ready". 2. Pools are very small and filthy. 3. Security is a total joke. (Very much mall cops with a mighty chip on the ole' shoulder. 4. The beach is poorly maintained. 5. Back to security.. You feel as of you are being watched every second. Kids are not allowed to splash, yes.. There is no splashing at Splash. Lights OUT at 10pm!! Otherwise "deputy didn't go to college" is gonna give you the third degree! All in all, not worth the price. If you are looking for a great place to stay & enjoy spending you hard earned $$. This is NOT the place for you.

Where to start? The room wasn't ready when we arrived. Was told they would call, they didnt. No cell service. Wifi would not stay connected. When our room was finally ready, it smelled like fish and no amount of febreeze got rid of it. The furniture in the room was old and dated. There was no dishwasher in the unit and no dish drainer to put the hand washed dishes (3 adults and 5 kids). All the pools are in the shade and are closed down at random times. We just expected more for the money!
