I just wanted to say that Sterling is great. Our room was adorable and so neat and clean. You will love it. It is a great place for familes. I will stay there again if I ever go back to Panama City.

Stayed in a 4 bdrm/4 bath 10th floor condo over spring break. The view was to die for. The condo was nicer than we could have ever imagined. No crowds since we were 4 miles down from the teenage scene. Highly recommend this condo and Panama City.

Stayed at Sterling Beach Resort for a week over Spring Break in March. My parents are "Snowbirders" and rent a condo there every year for 3 months (Jan-Mar). They are very satisfied with it and I can see why. Condo is located farther down the beach than the usual glut of hotels/condos etc., but minutes away from great restaurants, attractions, stores, etc. Community areas are exceptional. Beach was very clean. There are lounge chairs on the beach (there may be a fee though for people just staying for a week, there wasn't for long time renters). Nice workout room with treadmills, universal machine, free weights, recumbent/regular stationary bikes, and elliptical machine. Televisions too. Has a 100-seat movie theatre, where they show movies on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Pool area very nice with jacuzzi. My parents' unit had 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms - 6 adults were NOT falling over each other, very spacious and well-done. The layout consisted of one master bedroom with walk-in closet, and huge bathroom with jacuzzi. Then, one queen bedroom and one bedroom with twin beds that shared a good-sized bathroom with two sinks. Also had fold out couch. Large balcony with table, chairs, and lounge chair. Full kitchen with all the implements you could need, large pantry with full-size washer/dryer. Would highly recommend this complex, but keep in mind that all units have different owners, so quality can vary. My parents have stayed in two different units, and liked them both, but it never hurts to ask whoever you're renting from to email you some pictures.

We just got back from a 2 week stay at Sterling Beach Resort. We stayed on the 12th floor in unit 1203. This place was gorgeous!!!! Felt just like home and all the extras in the condo made it special. The pool area was really nice and we enjoyd cooking out on the gas grills a couple of times too.

What a great place to stay! No crowds, no hassles, no lines! We stayed on the 4th floor and the unit was first class all the way! The rooms were huge and the decor was beautiful! Nothing cheap about this place. The pool is huge and the service was great. No complaints what so ever. I hope to go back again next year. I loved the spacious rooms with big bathrooms and whirlpool tub. The kitchen was super nice and the view from the deck was incredible. The balcony is about 3 times the size of a normal balcony. The time to go is after the 13th of August. The rates drops big time and you don't have all the crowds and rowdy people. I would recommend this place in heart beat. I would love to buy one of these if I could afford it. However, the price for the 2 bedroom unit that we stayed in cost 950,000.00. What a price, what a beauty!

Very satisfied in Huntsville, Alabama

Our three bedroom condo was beautifully decorated with all modern ameneties. The full wall of windows overlooking the ocean was beautiful!
For those who like a balcony, there was an ample one on the side of the unit. The kitchen had granite countertops and new appliances. I was very impressed with this condo. Staying with others is usually a compromise, but not here. The spacious three bedroom, three full baths allowed plenty of privacy with common areas to socialize. The price was excellent for this beautiful condo. The pool and hot tub were clean and well maintained. Security was good. We will return in the future.

We were guest june/2005. we had booked thru vrbo and the people who owned the unit we stayed in were great! the room looked as though it could have been brought right out of the pages of a magazine.it was breathtaking!clean throughout,everything a guest could have wanted was there and then some!about the pool...it was beautiful....my husband and daughter stayed there most of the time..I did not like the fact that upon our arrival at the pool (ater 6 hrs driving) that my sons beach towel was taken, we were over near the deep end and he went to dry off and it was gone, we saw it 3 days later on a gentleman that was sitting next to our chair that day...and on our last day my husbands towel was taken, (he was upset) I agree with a prior review that if you do not get to the pool early you will not have a lounger!people place towels to hold them . they say you cant come to pool until 9 but people have already placed towels there or at least they did the days we were there.if a wedding is to take place please make sure that you/family decide not to see a movie their at the property because the reception will take place in area.movies were advertised and son of the mask was supposed to play that evening and we got ready to go with kids and found out that a wedding reception was being set up/no one posted that on the movie days or times. kids were upset.we did not have to check in @ front desk because we rented thru owners @ vrbo.they send you everything you need. but property was beautiful, the pool was beautiful,our unit was breathtaking,great weather,quiet solid walls ,not able to hear alot of noisy teenagers running around, like in some of the other places we have stayed.. we will probably return and ask for the unit we had though,thru owners... I do wish that the property had a little store set up or a little sandwich shop available to the guest...thank you..
