“Wonderful trip!”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

We stayed in Condo #2307 for our family trip. This is a beautifully decorated condo with the best view. My family enjoyed watching the sunset and the animals in the water. This condo was perfect for us 3 bedrooms, one a bunk bed room for our kids and 2 bedrooms with sleep number beds! Awesome. We will come back every year to enjoy such a beautiful condo, beach, wonderful pools and the nicest staff!

After researching dozens of destinations from Destin to Panama City Beach for our beach wedding, I found Aqua to be the best choice I could have possibly made for our event. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the facility itself was beautiful, and the room for the reception was very very nice. It was close to Pier Park and restaurants for my group to be able to find things to do, the beach was not too crowded and was clean, and the condos were great!! We had a group of about 30 and between us rented some 1 bedrooms, 2 bedrooms, and 3 bedroom condos. Everyone was very pleased with the condos, the views, and the amenities. We had several people who preferred the pooll over the beach and they were very happy with the two pools that Aqua had. They were not too crowded and there was plenty of chairs available. A couple of us came down a month before the wedding and the staff was very quick to show us around, let us see condos that would be like the ones we were renting, and let us into the reception room several times so that we could take measurements, pictures, and decide what we needed decorations-wise. The wedding turned out beautifully and we enjoyed the rest of the stay there as well. We are looking forward to taking another trip to Aqua very soon!!

Room Tip: We got some good deals from VRBO.. several people were able to get "all-inclusive" rates a...

After reading helpful reviews, we decided to reserve a condo at the Aqua. The condo was very clean, roomy and comfortable. Our group had 4 adults and one child. The condo was modern and attractive (did not have the 'Golden Girls TV set' look that other properties have. We stayed on the 23rd (top) floor. Once I adjusted to the height, the view of the ocean was great! Perfect for watching sea life. Really wish the pool was heated. The indoor pool is really an indoor/outdoor pool, heat is really needed for the cooler months. I was impressed with the visibility of Aqua staff & security. The facility is well taken care of. This was a great trip experience. (gave sleep quality a middle rating, the mattress was way too firm for us)

Room Tip: Top floor does have water noise from room equipment (like a fountain running all night).

My husband & I spent a wonderful week in condo #1510 9/17-9/24/11. Was a great choice, especially for a couple. Our 1 bedroom, 2 bath unit was extremely clean & decorated very nicely. Kitchen was fully stocked. Furnishings were nice & very comfortable. There were flatscreen TV's in living room & bedroom. Enjoyed breakfast each morning watching the dolphins from our private balcony. Location was perfect for us, as we love to park on arrival & not drive again until time to leave. Great restaurants were in easy walking distance. Enjoyed Sharkey's Beach Bar & Grill right on beachfront & also the neat eating establishments in Pier Park. The beach itself was beautiful & easily accessible from the pool area. Early Fall was perfect time to visit, as there were no crowds. Really liked the security code system that Aqua uses, always felt secure both regarding the condo itself as well as the property. We had a terrific stay, & would highly recommend Aqua for your Panama City Beach vacation.

Room Tip: Middle units have balconies that are completely private. Be sure to check out the virtual tour of un...

We stayed at the Aqua for Thanksgiving week in November of 2010, I didn’t realize I could review the condos on here or I would have posted sooner. Best time ever!!! The Aqua is absolutely stunning!! We stayed in condo 2010, the view from this floor is unbelievable. The view alone was worth the trip! The beach is beautiful and we enjoyed being able to swim out to the sandbar and stand up in ankle deep water!! Lots of waves while we were there so we had fun “wave jumping” and just being silly. The pools are also very beautiful…we used the indoor and the outdoor pools while we were there as it was November in Northern Florida…it was chilly at night, but you can go inside and swim to stay warm but it does get quite loud inside the pool building when there are families with kids. They also have a hot tub…but at least when we were there it was WAY TOO HOT!!! We couldn’t get the water temp to go down at all. My husband couldn’t get in at all because of how warm it was…I enjoy warm water and when I got out, I was tomato red! Not exactly relaxing but no big deal!! We made our own food most of the time we were there and they have a Walmart just down the road so it was easy to go and pick up groceries upon arrival (including a turkey for Thanksgiving!). We did venture to Pier Park a few times and even visited on Black Friday to pick up some deals, it’s very nice there and you can walk there. We did pay the few bucks to walk down the pier and we saw some jelly fish floating in the water and a turtle! It was a great place for photos, LOTS of people fishing off the pier though which can be dangerous and I almost got hooked by one of the fishers when they were casting off. Scary! Just be careful and stay out of their way. Also, when we were swimming on the beach there was one family that would wade out to the sand bar with chairs and buckets to fish…they didn’t look for people swimming and again, almost got hooked by their lines while they were casting off a few times. Not a big deal, just again, stay out of their way! However, the whole stay…was extremely FOGGY!! We could hear planes from the military base nearby flying planes and we could see them *a little*. It was very weird that the whole time planes were flying, it was foggy. After the planes stopped, the fog cleared!! Weird! All in all a great trip!!! I would recommend this place to everyone!!!

Room Tip: The higher rooms have an AMAZING view of the ocean!!!

We stayed in #2203 which is a penthouse condo. The condo was beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds and roomy bathrooms. In fact, the furnishings looked brand new. The kitchen is very nice, big and fully stocked. This is a 3 BR/3BA condo, and each bedroom had its own flat screen TV. The only complaint is the living room could have used a little more seating. The balcony is huge with access from not only the living room and master bedroom but also a guest bedroom. I had some hesitation about staying at the top and trying to get an elevator, but we never had an issue - the elevators were extremely fast and prompt (unlike some places I've stayed at PCB). You also get 2 beach chairs and an umbrella for the length of your stay which is a big plus! The location is very close to Pier Park - you can practically walk there. The 2 pools were fine - not really anything special. But the view of the ocean from the top is fantastic! I look forward to coming back to Aqua again someday!

Room Tip: Ask for a penthouse unit or a unit on a higher floor for a fantastic view.

We stayed in condo 403 which is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit. We chose this unit because it comes with chairs and umbrella every day. The owner has nice linen in the unit and the TVs were all good size flat screen. Although the rooms were not as big as some other condo we have stayed in the area, the furnishing was very nice and spacious enough for us. There were 2 outdoor pools and one of them is connected to an indoor area with jacuzzi. The pool was pretty clean and we can see maintenance/security staff checking on everyone all the time. The beach access was easy and the beach right in front of the condo was nice and wide. I think the condo is not responsible for the trash on the beach though and I really wish the city of PCB will clean the beach as often as Destin. Although Aqua is in a nice area, you can still find cigarette and misc trash on the beach, which seems to be a common theme in PCB. Aqua itself is beautiful, clean and upscale. There were 4 elevators and they were all pretty fast except for the check-out date when we found out the housekeepers locked some elevators to move their carts. Unlike Splash, there was no free movie rental (front desk said the stuff they have are pretty old). The front desk close by 6 or 7pm so if you are checking in late, make sure to call them ahead to get the code. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will probably be back if we don't find a newer comparable condo in our next trip.
