“OK Trip during a bad rain storm period”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

The condo was OK but dated. The lobby was hot during day or night. The check in staff was friendly but not real helpful for someone who had traveled hours to get to the location. Signage needs to be better for "A" "E", etc. The location we stayed was "A" building which is the oldest so some things are understandable however after a long day of travel the staff could be more friendly and helpful about check in, etc.

After having issues with another condo complex on PCB that had mold in it, we desperately went looking for another pet friendly place. Dunes of Panama came through and had one for us that we could stay long term. Although the condo hasn't been updated to much, it was clean and it met our needs. The complex is beautiful and very clean. I like Suds Weezer's the place on site to get a bite to eat and a good drink. Overall, I am very happy with the staff and the fact that they have some pet friendly units. I don't travel without my pets, and I am a responsible pet owner that will take care of the unit. Wish other owners would allow a pet....kids can do more damage that a well behaved pet! Thanks Dunes Of Panama. Will recommend to others.

We have been coming to PCB for many years and for many years I've wanted to stay at The Dunes of Panama. Finally this year I made it! My hubby & I always come to the beach in September for (our) vacation......we found a lovely condo in The (E) building on the 15th floor, 1504. I must say the photos for this condo home do not do it justice......it is gorgeous! First it has a entrance foyer that splits off two ways to the Master br and single bedroom, both with separate baths & dressing areas, loaded with closets, beautiful mirrors & furnishings. The kitchen (loaded with everything you need) is beautiful facing the extra large living room & dining room off to the side. The entire condo was super clean, linens beautiful and loaded with a large quantity of plush towels. Big TV's and great reception for Internet.....I never had any problems with this. The owners, Mr. & Mrs. Hogan are wonderful to work with & make sure the condo is spotless for your stay. In fact the entire grounds at The Dunes are spotless. (No steps to the Beach) Wonderful!

Room Tip: Great view off the balcony of the Gulf and large swimming pool.

Couldn't get a unit at our favorite place, The Hidden Dunes, so we gave the Dunes another try, thinking at least if we rented through the management office we could change rooms if we had a problem like we did several years ago. Was vacationing with family so we rented two units on the same floor, of the same building. Arrived at different times and one family was mistakenly placed in the wrong building - called the office after going to the unit and asked if they had made a mistake because the unit had 3 bedrooms vs the 2 we had reserved and they said no, no mistake. Had already unpacked and gone to the pool and THEN was told a mistake was made and family would have to move. Very inconvenient, plus the office staff would not really take responsibility for the error, or compensate us in any way for the inconvenience. Both rooms had been remodeled/updated but still it is an older building, with issues you have with older buildings- small kitchen, small bathrooms, only 2 bathrooms in a 3 bedroom unit, furniture was cheap and shabby, beds very uncomfortable. Overall, you can get a much nicer condo for the same rates the Dunes charges. Pool area is nice.

After horrible experience at shores of panama and no place to stay with most all properties showing no vacancies - dunes came through with flying colors!!! Room was on 3rd floor building d had not been updated but still very nice. Staff was excellent. Only negative was group partying at pool. Security worked to correct! Even with not updated room staff will always have our business because they were there and made my birthday awesome!!

My 1st two vacations at the Dunes were very good. My last visit In July was not. The room E-305 was poorly cleaned, the master bath toilet would not flush and a the living room reeked of cat urine. I had to complain twice before they had the carpet cleaned and the maintenance man mentioned needing a plumber ( who never came). Several days after returning home I received a letter stating a $30.00 cleaning charge for staining the sleeper sofa mattress, which we never used. Due to poor property management, they wanted to recoup the cost of a carpet cleaner on Sunday. There are many other properties in PCB to choose from. I will never stay at the Dunes of Panama again.

Trust me, not only was the condo in terrible condition but the entire complex was a mess. Beware ... the website will totally fool you! The first sign that things would not be good, was the ownber's boats parked in the tall grass in the front of the units ... weeds in the grass, trash in the parking lot. The website comes across as a newer resort with tiki huts/bars with grills with burgers and such. We were there for 5 days and we never found the one little hole in the wall to be open. 901D is a dump. It's old and it's dirty. I could write a list a mile long but I'm not going to spend that much time on this review. The main point I want to get across is that the complex and unit is NOTHING like the website makes them out to be. I would NEVER go back!
