We stayed at Watercrest mid to late June 2016. They have up a sign that they are doing over a million dollar renovation. We stayed on the 17th floor. It is 18 floors but the top is premium-need a special key/card to get into. It was a nice place. Our room was on the corner and had a spectacular view... More

My family and I traveled to Panama City Beach in June 2016. This was our first time staying on the far end of Thomas Drive(close to St. Andrews State Park) and also our first time staying at Watercrest. Our overall experience was great! We all loved our unit and it had great beach and pool access. Unit 110 is a... More

All of the appliances worked, with one exception (below), and the condo was VERY clean. The only maintenance issue we encountered was a noisy dryer in the washer/dryer stacked unit. I called the...

The condo was very nice every bedroom had its own bathroom which is nice when traveling with friends. The Balcony was on the beach side of the complex and we had a great view morning, noon & evening. The only negative was there was some construction going on during our stay

Very nice location, construction going on during my visit caused limited parking. This is a nice ground floor unit, but could use some extra attention from the owners. It has a nice comfy bed in master bdrm but the other bdrm could sure use some new beds. Microwave handle broken, closet doors off track, leaning in back of closet. Couch... More

Good location, nice pool, great ocean views, right on beach. Only issue I had was our condo #1003 although adequate. It needed updating and was very dirty. Carpet was dirty, mold in tub around hand support. Coffee maker didn't work. Stove was dirty. Silverware was dirty. Over all the stay was pleasant. Just wish condo had been cleaner. It's as... More

The views from our floor was amazing, not just of the ocean but of the amazing city too. Best part of Watercrest is its location, being on the eastern part of the city, you avoid the cheaper and more run down motels, that house the infamous wild party-goers, leaving an astonishingly quiet and family oriented area to enjoy your vacation....
