“great experience staying here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Our first trip to this area, we stayed for 5 nights. The property exceeded expectations, although we always have great experiences at Marriott properties. The unit was perfect, large, very clean and extremely well maintained. We had everything we needed with 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen & in-unit laundry. The service provided by the staff was phenomenal, in every department, particularly front desk, concierge and activities center manager. Our vacation experience was definitely enhanced by our great experience at Legends Edge.

Legends Edge is my my home time share with MVCI. Our stay this week has been wonderful. Our villa is spacious & well maintained, with a view of the Lagoon. The staff could not be more friendly & professional and contacted us before we arrived to inquire if there were any of our needs to be met in advance of our arrival. I'd highly recommend this establishment.

Room Tip: Request either Villa 1601 or 2607.

This timeshare resort is on a spit of land surrounded by bay. No beach, but it is only a 10 minute drive to St. Andrews Park. Our room was very comfortable for four adults. We had some minor problems with electricity and plumbing, which were promptly addressed. Staff was pleasant and we enjoyed the complementary wine and cheese they had hosted one evening.

They could use some policing of the pool. One morning we watched some woman spread towels over 14 chairs in the small pool area. Another morning someone “saved” about 8 chairs in the morning, which were not used by anyone all day. We also observed smoking and glass bottles used there.

I was concerned about the lack of beach access, but we had such a great time we wouldn't hesitate to return.

Room Tip: If you like afternoon sun, ask for the Bluebelle building. The screened balconies there are larger...

We have been to 9 different Marriott properties in the US. This property is clean, well maintained, and the staff was extremely friendly. If you could move all of the above out of Panama City, it would be a really nice place to visit. We traveled 45 minutes each day to SeaSide, FL to enjoy the beach, restaurants, and a safe environment to walk at night. This resort also did not offer much for dining except for a nice little bar at the marina. It looked like Marriott just plopped a couple buildings in a golf course area and called it a Vacation spot...
Sorry, we won't be back since there are so many other places to stay.

Room Tip: Don't go...

Location was beautiful, but getting to it was through densely developed area. Staff was terrific and changed my room at my request without any difficulty. Rooms were clean, but not quite up to par. Food was good at both the inside bar and at Lime's. You must take the ferry to the beach with it's beautiful white sand. Sunsets are outstanding.

As a Marriott owner so let me say that this property is well maintained, clean, and the staff is excellent. As far as a hotel stay is concerned this property is fine. My issue was that there is no water access. While we knew the property was not typical "beachfront" but rather on the bayside, we were under the impression it was waterfront with some water access. This is not the case. As a Marriott owner we used points and would have stayed here regardless because our time was "paid for." The beach is a short drive away for those who want beach access. Lack of on sight dinning is also a negative. Again as for as hotel/condo stay the facility is wonderful.

The rooms are spacious but the resort is not what you expect from a Marriott Vacation Club property. There are only two buildings, but there is not a restaurant on site. There is no tiki bar at the pool so, if you are like me and a vacation includes a frozen pina colada poolside with an umbrella in it, you will be disappointed. (Of course, there are plastic glasses in the rooms so you can make your own and take a cooler down to pool, which some people may prefer.) This was our first trip to the panhandle of Florida. We checked in on a Saturday but the concierge is off on the weekends, and in this case, she was off until Tuesday, so we floundered on our own for the first day and a half. By the time the concierge was back on Tuesday, we had figured things out for ourselves and we checked out on Wednesday morning. (The resort is off the beaten path and not near the beach or the strip of hotels and restaurants, so we felt very lost about where to go and what to do.) The concierge left a newsletter in her absence, but it was over St. Patrick's day weekend and nothing in the newsletter listed any St. Patrick's Day events. I was able to access the local paper on my laptop and found quite a few St. Patty's Day events. The front desk tried to help us with suggestions of places to eat and go, but they were swamped most of the time. (The front desk suggested a pizza place but gave us the wrong phone number for the place.) If you are looking for a true resort with restaurants, bars and multiple pools, try the Wyndham next door. We walked over to the Wyndham where we were pressured to attend a sales presentation (we were never asked to attend one at the Marriott). The employees at the Wyndham were helpful with suggestions about where to go and what to see, but they had negative things to say about the Marriott's concierge, saying she only recommended places that paid her well to do so. I have no idea if that is true or not, but I know it did not give me a positive impression of either place. The pool at the Marriott is saltwater. The computer in the check-in building can be used to print boarding passes and mapquest directions for a charge of $0.35 per minute and a credit card is needed to access it. The resort itself is very peaceful and quiet. It was spring break and the rest of PCB was an absolute zoo, but there was no sign of the craziness at this resort. The grounds and buildings are maintained well. The housekeeping staff was friendly and helpful.
