The condo was average. Upon arrival, we were looking over everything & noticed whomever was there before us didn't wash the silverware before putting them back in the drawer. I had to wash them first. My family & I couldn't relax on the balcony, because the security staff was yelling & blowing whistles, continuously, during the entire stay. This was... More

We were very apprehensive about staying at the summit due to all of the terrible reviews. We were pleased when we got in the unit. Great view and pretty clean room. The was still a used coffee filter and coffee in the coffee pot. We washed the sheets and brought our own pillows and blanket. The time share was a... More

All units have a little mold. All units the beds are very hard. You have the stupidest security guards and staff I have ever come across in the world. No joking. And I am the type of person that can make lemonade from lemons. So I still managed to have a great time in this terribly outdated molding condo. It's... More

Decided to take the family to Panama City Beach and came across a Groupon for the summit. I read a few reviews and it was a lot more than I was expecting. It is right on the water and view is awesome. My family was more than comfortable on the 1 bedroom. Can't wait to come back!

Booked through Groupon & read reviews after booking--was worried because reviews were horrible. Our experience was good--Room 914--The place has seen its hayday but still a good beach location. Our unit was clean, freshly painted & new couch--typical pull-out mattress but comfy for watching TV (sitting). Enough pillows, covers, towels in this unit. Master bedroom mattress not modern--board like but... More

I have never stayed here before and after reading the reviews I kept telling my family we would just "deal with" whatever we got and learn from our experience. We stayed in room 1131 and I was pleasantly surprised. The condo was a bit dated but it was very spacious and even had a washer/dryer. Thanks to another reviewer I... More

We were in room 612. Pantry was disgusting. Food all over the shelves. The Bedroom had an oversized foam pad on top of a very old mattress. They bed was elevated with those cheap plastic bed elevators. Everytime you moved, the squeaks from the old frame and mattress would wake you up. The TV in the bedroom is probably from... More

When we stepped into our condo at The Summit, I could not wait to get out to the balcony. The view was amazing! Our condo was great for a family of four. Two adults and two teens. Very spacious and up to date. We enjoyed the tiki bar by the pool several times. The pools were kept nice and clean.... More

We stayed in room 809.. The couches smelled like pee, the bedding consisted of only flat sheets and the bunk beds were wooden with a very thin mattress so you feel the boards in your back.. But bikini bobs and the tiki bar was amazing! I would go back but I would never stay in the same room!
