Sterling Breeze
Reviewed March 7, 2009

The condo we stayed in was new and very high-end. The owners have added lots of little touches that made things really convenient. It was cold one afternoon and there were soft throw blankets we used to just hang out on the sofa and watch the cold rain. Pretty relaxing for a cloudy day.

We stayed in Sterling Breeze 601 which we booked through VRBO. The condo is great. We loved the bunk room at the back where the kids could hang out and play by themselves.

We also loved the fire pit and wine bar. Very cool! Highly recommend.

We just returned from an October stay at Sterling Breeze. It is a very refined, friendly and definitely upper scale complex. It is smaller than most of the others on the beach. We have stayed in recent years at Majestic Beach, Celadon, Emerald Beach and Shores of Panama. They are all nice and have strong and weak points. (Shores of Panama was our least favorite). We found Sterling Breeze in a class by itself. It only has approximately 140 units and is dwarfed by some of the other complexes on the beach but is is perfectly maintained and managed by a very friendly and responsive staff. We dealt directly with the resort and not through an individual owner and were very pleased. We stayed in an east end unit which was spectacular. It had a seperate 3rd bedroom/bunkroom somewhat removed from the main unit by a long hallway. That room had double bunkbeds for 4 people although we only have 2 children. It had a nightstand, dresser, flat screen tv.dvd and drawers below the beds. Our children were able to set up shop in that part of the unit with their games, toys etc. It's separate location afforded us a sense of privacy while still aware of their activities.

The entire unit was very spacious. It has an electric stainless steel grill on the balcony which looks inviting although we never gave it a try. The pool area, whirlpool etc are very, very nice. It has a workout room overlooking the pool and beach on the first floor which has great cardio and fitness equipmnet. The furnishings both in the condo and in the lobby, pool area and everywhere in the complex are all top end.

As you may know it's about 1/2 mile from the Pier Park shopping (dining, entertaining etc) complex and certainly easily walkable althouh we drove. The units all have Internect access. Some, like ours, have wireless in the room as the owner had a wireless router plugged into the wall. If not I was told by the front desk that they have cables you can plug into your laptop or use the wireless areas on the first floor.

Overall this is the nicest condominium complex we have stayed at in the last 6 years since we've been coming to PCB. It has more of a boutique, almost European feel as compared to some of the super complexes we stayed it. While we always like to try new places, both my wife and I decided we will return to Sterling Breeze next time.

we stayed in the sterling breeze condo in august.
I am used to staying in nicer, newer condos, but this place was really over the top nice.
the cabinetry has the appearance of fine furniture, even in the baths. travertine tiled showers with huge glass enclosures.
the unit was new, smelled new, looked new.
the balconies were ample, and the grill on the balcony was a nice touch.
this is a very nice place for those who like their accomodations a little more upscale.
we booked our unit on vrbo and everything worked to perfection.
i highly recommend this property.

First, let me say that the property itself is quite nice. The units were lovely and nicely furnished (though surprisingly beat up for a building that had only been open for five months), the pool was excellent, and there was plenty of parking. However, I had issues with the service.

1. When we researched the Breeze, the website had a list of amenities that included free high-speed wireless internet access and beach service (chairs and umbrellas). When something is listed as an amenity, that means it's included, right? Wrong. Wireless internet access was only available in the bar downstairs. And beach service was an additional $25 a day. I found these to be inappropriate bait-and-switch tactics.

2. When we arrived, we had no bedding for the sleeper sofa, and one of the televisions was missing a remote. These were replaced when we called the desk, but we shouldn't have had to ask. And there was no apology for the inconvenience.

3. My husband's key card became inactivated at one point, and he went to the desk to have it reactivated. They didn't ask for his name, all they did was give him a key for the room number he requested. This is a huge security risk.

4. The pool opened at 8:00 am. However, two out of the four mornings we were there, the pool was closed until at least 9:00 am due to maintenance. Why couldn't this maintenance be performed before the pool was supposed to open?

5. We realized on our second day that our in-sink garbage disposal did not work. I called and they promised to send someone to fix it. The next day, we realized it was working. However, one of our party was in the room all day - so either they came in and did the work without bothering to notify the person sitting on the deck that they were in the condo (which I consider a very poor business practice), or they never showed up and it spontaneously started working. Either way, not a good way to handle it.

The Breeze is in a very nice area - rather quiet, and far from the tattoo parlors, etc. of the more "spring breaky" end of Panama City. And my vacation certainly wasn't ruined - we had a wonderful time. But I will not visit another Sterling resort.

The Sterling Breeze was a magnificent Condo. i went there for Spring Break 2008. I must say the Sterling Breeze is an fun filled place to stay to enjoy your Panama Vacation. I loved the fact that the condo had a grill on the balcony so that way we could cook out. Beacuse at the previous condo we stayed at did not. The condo was clean and was kept in good shape. There was nothing dissipointing about this place!!!
The Beach is clean and kept Private and walking distance was GREAT! you could walk to the new Peir Plaza shoppping mall. Which was a great fun thing to do woth the Family!!! The main office also was extremely Friendly and nice... they made sure that it was the best vacation you could go on with your family. they also provide movies for rent at anytime for FREE. And dont worry its not any movies u have never heard... it common movies beacuse when we were there we got the holiday and watched it on the big flat screen t.v!!!!
Now to the pool. The pool was big and extremley nice it was not to hot or not to cold beacuse they have a heater to keep it just right. They also have lounge chair alongside the pool for the parent's to relax while their kid are swimming about in the pool. and dont worry there are kids of all ages everywhere!!! So you can enjo your time. They also have a HOTT TUB!!! and jets spitting up everywhere in the pool and hot tube. it was relaxing and nice. The sterling breeze also has a pool lounge with counches and a bar with stools and 3 flat screen tv haung around the walls. so that way your husband could watch the game while being acconpied by the ocean breaze and sound of the waves crashing!!!
Also the sterling breeze has a Gym so that way you can Exersize while your on vacation. and i must say the equiptment was very nice and kept in good shape and was brand new!!!! my daughtar could not wait to get on the treadmill it was a great family place to stay i would say its a best place to go to get Quality time with your kids... i would reccomend this place out of any other condo if you want to have a good time., So book your next stay here i know i will!!!!
