Fifth-floor beachfront condo w/furnished balcony, shared pools, hot tub & grills

This beachfront, darling condo is straight out of every beach lover's dream! With a prime location right on the beach, endless, family-friendly shared amenities, and modern appliances, Grand Panama Tower 1 502 is exactly the getaway you need for a fun-filled retreat. Take in superb beach and gulf views from your furnished balcony, the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the breeze after spending the day at the beach–the location on the fifth floor has its perks, right? Back inside, snuggle up on the couch with a refreshing beverage and watch your favorite shows on the flatscreen TV, or channel your inner chef and treat your guests to savory meals in the fully-equipped kitchen. If you'd like to upgrade your cooking game, the resort offers shared gas grills. This charming retreat boasts a convenient washer/dryer so you don't have to worry about dirty clothes or packing heavy. If the beach is too crowded for your liking, take advantage of one of the shared pools available (indoor, outdoor, heated), or relax your tired muscles in the shared hot tub.

What's nearby:
With this prime location, the main attraction is the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the sugar-white sands; it's the perfect time to work on your tan and leave all of your worries behind (make sure to bring your sunscreen). Rent some gear at the nearby Salty Dog Surf Shop right across the street or buy some presents and souvenirs for your people back home at Monkey Shack. Goofy Golf offers mini-golf courses with colorful themes for a fun-filled afternoon and it's only half a mile away. Anglers will have a great time at the nearby M.B. Miller County Pier.

Everything was great!! We will be back!!
Ruth M. Oct 2022
So enjoyed staying here! Comfortable, well equipped with an awesome view of the beach! Just a little cooler than we had expected but was able to enjoy the pool area anyway! Thanks for a needed get-away! We want to come back soon!!! 😊
Melissa R. Oct 2022
Love the 5th floor condo. Would stay here again.
Nichole J. Sep 2022
Overall, no huge complaints and we would stay again. Minor inconveniences.

There were areas that had not been cleaned and the kitchen had food in cabinets that was missed by the cleaning crew. No forks? We had to go get some plastic ones. And compared to other condos we have stayed in the building, just wasn’t as nice. Outdoor furniture needs to be updated and wasn’t comfortable. TVs need to be updated, cable didn’t work on the living room TV. And we have stayed at other condos with all smart TVs with our apps etc. First world problems for sure.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Nichole, we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for sharing your feedback and bringing some items to our attention that may need some TLC. We have forwarded your feedback to the local staff so they can work to improve the house for future guests. We hope you choose to stay with us again.

Eddie A. Aug 2022
Love the location but OMG mattress was old noisy and give everyone back pain and not a good night sleep at all if the remodel the unit and replace the mattress will definitely go back, clean up was OK not the best
Manager response:
We appreciate you taking the time to leave this review for us, Eddie. We are delighted to hear how much you loved this wonderful location. We are sorry to hear that the mattress wasn't suitable for your preferences. We will be sure to pass along your comments about the mattress and the cleanliness to our local team. Thank you for staying with us. We would love another opportunity to host you with an improved experience.
Sara W. Jul 2022
I loved the room and all the amenities. The only reason I only gave 4 stars is that the A/C would not cool below 73. I called maintenance multiple times and never got a response. Other than that, the room was great.
Manager response:
Hi, Sara! We're glad you stayed with us and were happy to send maintenance over to assist you during your visit. They discovered the air conditioner was set to 63 degrees, which freezes the unit, causing it not to work properly. The unit has thawed out and is working properly. Thank you!

When we arrived there was feces in one of the toilets, dirty wash cloths under bathroom sink, kitchen sink had stuff stuck all in it, hair on the bed sheets and ashes and toe nails on the balcony. I called the management company after we got there and they sent us clean linens and told us that someone would be out at 9am the next morning to clean. We decided to go out for breakfast right before the cleaning crew came. Once we got back we noticed that the cleaning crew came and only took the dirty linens but did NOT clean a single thing. We decided that it was too much of a hassle to continue dealing with and waiting for someone else to clean so we cleaned ourselves. I reached out to the management company Vacasa once we got back to see if they would make it right by at least reimbursing our cleaning fee but never heard back from them. I would not recommend renting any condo managed by Vacasa.

The condominium complex was nice. They were constantly cleaning pools, grills, pool chairs and their public bathrooms by the tiki bar was one of the cleanest public restrooms I have been in.

I felt like the parking fee was a little expensive at $30 per car.

The luggage carts were hard to find during peak check in and check out times.
Manager response:
Hi Melissa, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review.  We are sorry to hear your stay with us did not go as well as we hoped it would due to the clean that was not completed. We completely understand the frustration caused by this incident so rest assured we have addressed your concerns with the housekeepers. We always want our guests to have sparkly clean accommodations when visiting us. Thank you again for bringing these important issues to light. If there is anything we can still do for you, please reach out anytime and let us know.

View, Cleaniness, spacious, Large balcony
Sonya J. Jan 2022
The views from this condo were nice, but the condo could have been cleaner. The condo shows signs of some neglect. Ice maker broken in freezer, the freezer handle loose, washer and dryer dirty, hair found in both bathrooms. Cushions on rocking chairs on the balcony disgusting. Furniture outdated and bulky, guest bedroom mattress squeaked continously, impossible to get a good night's sleep. With a couple of updates this could be a nice stay for a couple or a family.
Manager response:
Hi, Sonya! The home has been deep cleaned since your review. We also have a new cleaning company that is doing a great job. We hope you'll consider returning!
Kendall H. Nov 2021
The condo is furnished exactly as the pictures state. I rated my stay as 5 stars. There was only one dislike: the beds squeak so loud every time you move. But we still enjoyed our stay and will definitely be booking again.
Melissa R. Oct 2021
The ease of the walkway to the parking deck on the same floor, the view, and the cleanliness makes me want to stay there again!
Nicholas S. Aug 2021
Nice unit and great Gulf View!
Celia C. Aug 2021
all of it next to beach, the rooms full of espace
Stephanie T. Jul 2021
The condo is beautiful with great views of the sandy beaches at the Grand Panama; which must be wedding central as we saw beach weddings every day. The kitchen was nice and well equipped. A few other notes about the condo that doesn’t affect my rating because it was still enjoyable. The master bedroom does not have a closet, the box spring in bed #2 should be replaced it’s very noisy and affected a restful nights sleep, the bunks are not in a room they are in a cubby behind a curtain.
Harold J. Jun 2021
Very nice room, look forward to next year
Julie N. Jun 2021
I loved the time I spent with my family, that about it. I didn't love anything about this rental. Very nasty!
Troy G. Jun 2021
From the time we open our door to the beautiful room and amazing view until we left it was an incredible time.Very clean and spacious.Very private and quiet.Top notch
Tracy P. May 2021
Enjoyed our weekend here. Great view and loved being on the breezeway floor for easy parking. Ice maker did not work. Beds a little on the soft side but I guess that's a preference thing.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Tracy! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. The house manager confirmed the icemaker is operational and working properly. It can be turned on by flicking the switch inside. Please know we have staff ready and available at all hours of the day to assist you with any questions or concerns that may arise. We hope to host you again soon!
Carol H. May 2021
I loved every square inch of this condo...perfect location to all kinds of fun...very clean and relaxing! Perfect vacation!!!!
Ray T. Apr 2021
Condo was very comfortable with an awesome view. Love that it is located on the same floor as crossover from parking deck. The air conditioner is very loud. Ice maker doesn’t work and Keurig coffee maker did not work.
Manager response:
Hi, Ray! The Keurig has been replaced, and the ice maker when it is turned on using the switch inside. Thank you so much for staying with us!
Susan K. Apr 2021
The Grand Panama Resort was a fantastic place for our family to spend spring break! The resort was clean, safe, family friendly and easy walking distance to activities, shopping and restaurants. The view was beautiful! The condo was comfortable, clean, just high enough to be peaceful but not too many flights to use the stairs. The added bonus of being on the fifth floor was wonderful as it is the same level as the sky bridge to the garage. Very convenient for unloading bags and groceries and such. Facing the ocean was lovely and the resort was full of families. Great decision!

Check in instructions were a breeze and went flawlessly!

Unit is in a great location on the 5th floor where the walkway to the parking garage is and is close to the elevators.

Unit is gulf front and has a great sized balcony.

Furnishings are nice, beds are comfortable, kitchen is well stocked with dishes and pans.

Beach chairs, umbrella, and beach towels are provided in unit.

Dish soap, dishwasher tabs, and kitchen sponge were even provided!

Property management doesn’t have a list of 1,000 things you’re expected to do when you check out like some places do. It was nice to not feel pressured, however we always do as much as possible to help the housekeeper get ready for the next guests!

Parking is absolutely 110% awful!!! Literally stressed me out every time we had to leave. Always tried to hurry back because I was worried we wouldn’t have a spot.

Although I thought parking was free, I was charged $20 and you’re still not really guaranteed a spot. If you have a full size SUV as I do, it can be a little hairy to find a spot!

Unit is on the warm side. We had the A/C at 70 and it never got below 75 degrees in the unit. Being that it’s only springtime, I would imagine during summer it would be pretty hot in there! Per instructions, you’re not supposed to leave the door open? So we tried to open it every so often to let cooler outside air in.

The advertised heated pool is not the beachfront pool, it’s the pool attached to tower 2 across the street from the beach.

Hot tub is small and was always full of people who literally camped out in it all day and night.

Master bedroom doesn’t have a real closet or a dresser for your clothes, just a very small cubby in the back of the bathroom...very odd.

Overall we enjoyed our stay. We would totally feel good about staying in another vacasa managed property in the future! Thank you!

Manager response:
Hi, Kathleen! We appreciate you leaving this review and apologize you weren't fully satisfied. The air conditioner has been repaired. The pool in tower 2 is only heated during the winter months, and we are unable to address your concerns with parking or the hot tub since they are outside our sphere of influence. Again, we apologize for these inconveniences and do hope to see you again.
