My boyfriend and I are back together after 24 years, and a lifetime apart....So we were looking for an exceptional vacation to celebrate our 2 1/2 years back together. We stayed at the Majestic Towers # 1. I didn't know what to expect booking reservations on the internet, but I found Beach Rentals and they were superb ask for Brandi she did an excellent job of listening to what I wanted. We arrived several hours early and called to see if we could get into our Studio condo, it was no problem. Our rooms very clean, and new looking, we had read what to bring extra, (afterall people this is not a Hotel).WE were only a block or so from Wal-Mart. How handy is that... We were on the 13 floor (yea, my daughter said she couldn't believe they have a 13 floor )
which I long ago said was a lucky number for me.) Our furnishing were all new looking, we got the Studio with the bedroom overlooking the ocean, and even slept with the patio doors open a couple of nights--WOW it was incredible. It was the end of May the week before memorial Day. The weather was great (something my reservationist told us when we were booking) the daytime temps were high 80's there were a couple of cool nights, a light jacket or long sleeves cured--thank God that my boyfriend insisted on. But, otherwise the weather was perfect-much better than sweltering heat. One day it was pretty cloudy in the morning, looked rainy, so we went to Ripleys Believe It or Not to wait out the rain, we had a Good time doing that (we've been to the One in Gatlingburg, we new it would be similar) when we came out there wasn't a cloud in the sky. James (aka bf) tried doing the Maze, it was fun, too the we did the Coconut Creek Putt Putt it was the prettiest on the beach.
As far as food...Sharkey's was horrible, compare it to worst than a fast food seafood place, and it was way over priced. Bishops and Captain Jacks, owned by the same person, was fair, best if you go during the busy time..it's buffet. ($23.00 a person) Brandi recommended a seafood restuarant in Panama City, it was worth the dri ve back over the bridge, we tried the Salt Water Grill resturant has an aquarium, piano player, the food and price was really good, after we bombed on several other places to eat we went to Appleby's, which was fair. I have visited Panama many times in the past and we always drove back into the city to eat there is a Po Folks, Sholtsky's,and other regular resturants.
Overall we were exceptionally pleased. There is a wait sometimes for the elevators....be patient, meditate, tell your significant other or children that you love them, enjoy the view, feel blessed to be able to afford a vacation... Anyways, the beach was kept very clean. The pools were clean, the outside pools were to cold for us so we used the inside one, hottubs were a little too hot for us. The grounds were kept very clean and pretty. We were a little dissappointed that the Bar & Grill weren't open on a regular schedule (due to pre-season, I guess) They had the MOST awesome Strawberry Daquri........It wasn't very crowded when we went but the Memoprial Day crowd was arriving when we were leaving, they were alittle rowdy...
We are already planning on the WHOLE family reserving next year same time...........................
