Spacious 2 bedroom condos with huge balconies facing the ocean. The views are breathtaking from the balcony! There a 2 pools and a large hot tub. One pool is an indoor/outdoor pool and is heated during the winter. The exercise room is lacking with a treadmill and 2 stationary bikes. However, you have a gorgeous beach for exercise so that's not a big deal! Location is convenient to restaurants, attractions and shopping. I like being a few miles away from Pier Park so there isn't much foot traffic spilling over from a local "hot spot."

This was my first time staying in a beachfront high rise condo. We stayed in 2201 on the 22nd floor. We absolutely loved this place!!!! Beautiful view, gorgeous interior, clean, huge balcony, and perfect for a couples weekend get away. Each couple had their own room and own bathroom. The set up of the bedrooms offered lots of privacy for each couple for the more 'intimate' times. Between the 4 of us, there was someone on the balcony almost 24 hrs a day because we just couldn't get enough of it. We did run into an issue with our keys not working to lock the room and this went on for almost the entire first 24 hours but was eventually repaired by maintenance. The effort that they put forth to make this right and repair the problem was impressive and management apologized, gave us a late check out for our troubles and a small partial refund. I don't really think we could have asked for more. It's in a great location, near most attractions and lots of restaurants within a mile. If you are looking for an awesome place to stay definitely give this one a try! I know I will...AGAIN!

This was our first time renting a "high rise" condo (there are 23 floors), so we were a little nervous about large numbers of tennants and over-crowded beaches. While there were more people than we were used to from the 3-4 story condos we've rented, it wasn't that bad. Further down the beach in either direction was a nightmare, however.
We rented unit 2106 on the 21st floor. It was tastefully decorated & for the most part clean. The carpets could use a heavy duty shampooing or replacement & there were a few things the cleaning service forgot, but this was all fairly minor stuff.
The kitchen wasn't really the best equipped. There was only one dish rag and one dish towel in the whole kitchen. Had most basics (but at a bare minimum), except no spaghetti strainer & no pot holders (had to use a bath towel to get things from the oven). Would have also loved to have had a muffin pan & a laundry basket, but realize that may be a bit picky.
Some slight maintenance issues like the faucet dripped, slats missing from the blinds, & lightbulbss burned out in foyer and over stove. I reported (but without urgency) most of this to Kathy (who we rented through) and she immediately reported it to maintenance. We were also missing our pool bands that were supposed to be left for us and housekeeping brought those almost immediately. I was impressed with that.
The main positive was the AMAZING view and huge balcony. It is like no other we've seen! LOVED IT! Also, very sound proof. Never heard a peep from neighbors.
The condo has two pools beachside...nothing huge or fancy though. The outdoor one seemed fairly clean. There was also a hot tub that we didn't use and another pool that was half indoor and half outdoor. No way were we swimming in the indoor part....it smelled terrible in there! Later, my husband said it was thesewage from the bathrooms off of the pool. For the price you pay, you should never have to deal with that! So that was the biggest negative.
There were also only two grills for use for all 23 floors so be prepared to snatch one early.
There were 3 elevators and we never really had to wait long.
There are two levels of parking under the building (which was sometimes difficult to find a spot) and three levels of a parking garage across the street with a catwalk connecting it to the building. This was very convenient. Never a problem finding a spot there.
Our condo was not equipped with anything for the beach...no chairs, toys, etc. (which was a first for us as renters). You can rent chairs and an umbrella from a beach service...the price they try to charge is a bit much, but you can negotiate. Aaron was in charge of this during our stay. Very friendly guy and he made our beach stay very pleasant. For the most part the beach was clean and the water clear. We were about .5 miles from Pineapple Willies, so we walked the beach for some drinks to go. Loved that!
Overall great stay. Hoping the owner stocks the kitchen with just a few more basics (really need more than just one rag/towel) and that they fix the few minor issues. Also, linens were provided. FYI: only two queen beds, but does have two sleeper sofas in unit 2106. My kids took turns on the couch because they refused to sleep in the same bed!
Would definitely consider staying again. Great location close to pretty much everything. Walmart is across & down the street...but that place was a complete zoo everytime we went!!! Beware! Also, the Panama City Beach Club sits next door to Ocean Villas. It is vacant, condemed looking & has been on fire...a huge eyesore. Hoping they tear it down soon. It didn't bother us that much, but it may someone else.

There are 23 floors and six condos per floor - two pools, a hot tub & sauna. The bathrooms by the pool area were poorly maintained but the rest of the complex was very clean. The elevators worked just fine. The beach is wonderful!! Unfortunately, the local misguided government has turned the public beaches over to the beach service to get all the tourist dollars they can. There are a couple nice restaurants close - Saltwater Grill & Sweet Basil. BUT you will have to drive because PCB has a terrible sidewalk system on Front Beach Road and Thomas Drive.

Room Tip: Higher floors get great views of the ocean and sunsets.

We have stayed here several times over the years booking through vrbo (#117243). It's a beautiful condo on the 16th floor w/ gorgeous views and lots of ocean life to watch from the big balcony while enjoying your morning coffee. The interior decorating looks like it's from a magazine AND it's always clean! I can't say enough about how nice it is.
There are outdoor grills, 2 pools (1 is indoor/outdoor), a hot tub, steam room and gym (never seen it - don't even want to know where it is....). A couple of things I really like about the building itself are: 1. covered parking (2 areas) with a walk-over if you have to park across the street, 2. pools/hot tub are in front of the building so you can still see/hear the ocean, 3. close enough to Walmart to walk if you need to pick up a FEW things.

This condo was perfect for what we were looking for in a great vacation. Everytime I come to panama city bch I come to this condo. Great view, great location ( close to lovely restaurants and the largest club in the world Club La Vela), and you can't ask for anything better than that..

i was scared by i presume the management.the complex is very poorly managed. i talked to 2 owners who are displeased. here was my experience. they were testing the fire alarm. i didnt know what the sound was so i went to ask. there was a large overweight man in the office. when i asked questions he was very rude and desmissive. he refused to identify himself and forced me to leave with out answering my questions. i have contacted my attorney to see if this should be followed up. it is a shame as the condos and owners are great. be awear of management. it certainly scared me and made me fell very uneasy.

Room Tip: unit 1106 mike is awesome
