First let me say that my review of The Summit is totally from the view point of doing a timeshare exchange into the property. The Summit only has 32 RCI timeshare units out of the 137 total units in the 16 story building all scattered on differing floors. A very nice lady named Eve, which has an office on site,... More

The building itself wasn't too bad. It was dirty and always had to take the stairs as there are only 2 elevators and seemed like we could never catch it. The beaches were very pretty and there is a lot within walking distance. The pool deck and area was okay but was VERY overcrowded most of the time. A lot... More

Property obviously caters to spring break-type visitors. We were in a 3 BD condo which is very spacious with great views. Decor is VERY dated; seemed as if they were protecting themselves against spring breakers. Who installs new countertops on old cabinets? Ice maker dumped maybe twice during our 5 day stay. Elevators do not have AC; not an issue... More

The condominium we stayed in at this location definitely exceeded our expectations. The interior was decorated very appropriately for the setting. The walls were painted a sea blue, and each piece of furniture mimicked the scenery one would see while at, or near, the beach. Six of us fit comfortably in one condominium. The space had one queen sized bed,... More

Stayed in room 105 last summer, 2014. The location of this room is awesome. We were close to the two pools and the grills that they provide. No waiting for the elevator was a plus considering we had our three children with. And the beach, it was about 50ft from the pool areas which was nice. The room has been... More

Throughout the year there are many options to book either a short weekend trip to a full week and possibly a few months at a time. We are pleased that you were able to enjoy a winter weekend visit through an individual owner and hope for many more return visits back to the Summit in Panama City Beach, Florida. More
