“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Everything from front desk to room was 5 star.
Pool was a 5 out of 5. Great.
The ONLY thing I wish was better was the tv package was offal. And for me tv is an important area of my vacation time. I had no menu of what was coming on. As I changed the channel it gave no indication of what station I was on or no name or information of what show was on. You guys need a direct tv package in the worst way. I'm guessing I was watching some sort of a cable tv package.No hbo or showtime fights on the weekend.
We stayed in condo #1223 and I have never been in a nicer place. The bed may have been the most comfortable I have ever layed on. When we were leaving as we took the sheets off we did see a blood stain that looked like someone was stabed on the bed. I let the lady at the desk know when we was checking out and maybe they took care of that. It was down toward the foot of the bed so it didnt bother me much. We stayed Aug 22, 23, and 24. It was real slow not a lot of people there which is just the way I like it. No elevator wait time, had an elevator with in seconds of pushing the button. Hot tub and pool wasnt full. It was an excellance time of year for me. I would highly recommend this place.

I admit, i was scared to to stay here after reading others reviews from booking with oseas and others but our friends we shared the condo with had already booked it...We stayed August 10-17... couldn't have asked for a better time. We booked thru VRBO and stayed in unit 1503. We had little to no problems other than WiFi not working which was on building end and fairly new Samsung dryer in our unit stopped working for a few days (neither of which was really the owners fault. Condo had excellent furnishings, very comfortable beds, plenty of space for 4 adults and 6 kids, granite counter tops. Very nice.. Booking thru VRBO seems to be the way to go. The wrist band policy is really not as bad as people are making it to be so long as you know about it going in.. Had to have it to get into pool area and back from beach but the people watching gates never hassle you as others have stated. The pool is very nice and even had on one night a DJ, speakers and lights set up for a club type atmosphere. Then another night a dive in movie on a big screen for the kids.. People complain about the cost of a wrist band to use the amenities like the pool but they need to understand that this is a condo community not a resort hotel (even though it felt like it) so the pool and other amenities is run by a management company. and if you go with VRBO you deal directly with the owner if there is any issues and not some third party property management company. Plus with VRBO it was one flat charge per person per week for wrist band. Not per day like others are stating. Oh and there is a ton of units and only 6 elevators but the longest I waited was 5 minutes for one. I'm sure its probably a longer wait during spring break season but had no issue when we went. Overall it was an awesome stay and definitely will be back. Thanks

We just got back from our trip to Panama City. It was shorter than I would have liked but we had a great time. Richard with Emerald View Management was wonderful. If we needed anything all we had to do was ask Richard and it was taken care of. The Resort was beautiful and we will return again soon. Thanks Richard for making our stay such a fun time.

I booked with shores of panama by oasis resorts on 8/26/13 for our stay aug 23-25. The took the payment and sent me a recept and conf#. I happen to call to check our room info on aug 21 to find that oasis went bankrupt and took our money and we didn't have a room. Very very very upset and will never stay here never. If they will put by oasis resort on their website than they should honor my recept. ;(. Unhappy!!!!

Only wi-fi available was down in the lobby. Property manager was very pleasant on the phone and talked us through a few door codes and wi-fi passwords (unit wi-fi would connect, but there was no internet access anywhere in the building). Unit itself was very nice, well furnished, and had a lovely view of the pool and Gulf. Plenty of room, though it was just two of us. We were in unit 616. The property itself is fairly nice, though I'm not sure that the daily amenities fee per unit is worth it. There is a parking garage, and some units have reserved parking. The garage was nice for unloading and loading our vehicle, as it was pouring down rain during both times.

Room Tip: Unit 616 is beautifully furnished and has a reserved parking space on the 6th floor of the garage, n...

We were constantly seeing large ships pretty neat. The pool was very nice and large!! We We enjoyed our stay and will def stay here again. (:
