“Awesome stay at Calypso”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Calypso is the place to be in Panama City Beach! The resort is well maintained, has plenty of amenities and ample/easy garage parking, is in a fantastic location, and above all is a great value. I really have no complaints and really don't understand some of the nit picky stuff I've read in previous reviews.

We rented 1 bedroom unit (#905) for 5 nights and went through Sterling Resorts. We had no issues with Sterling whatsoever; check-in took all of 5 minutes. The unit was a very well maintained, well appointed, and clean unit. And despite being in the elevator hallway it was VERY quiet! The unit had a spacious kitchen with black granite countertops and all the cookware you could need (even a blender and pitcher for some frozen drinks!). The living room has a nice dining set, easy chair, and sofa couch. The bed was fantastic...a very plush king and the bathroom is huge! Spa tub, separate shower, walk in closet and again black granite counters. There were 2 TVs and 2 DVD players (free DVD rentals in the lobby), plus hair dryers, laundry supplies, and a vaccuum. Our unit had high speed internet but it took us a day to realize there was an ethernet cable behind the couch (not sure if all units provide them though).

The beach is quite nice and your room comes with free chair/umbrella rentals. Just be sure to also pack a beach towel as none are provided. The pool area is very well maintained and there's also a Tiki Bar...although the frozen drinks were REALLY weak. Just bring your own!

The parking garage is located across the street but no worries, there's an enclosed walk way to it located on the 3rd floor. You won't need the car though as you are a 5 minute walk to Pier Park and a 10 minute walk down to Sharky's.

I would most definitely stay here again and highly encourage you too as well!

Room Tip: For a one bedroom, as for #905, which was our room. I would avoid any units on the first floor due...

After reading all of the reviews Good and Bad...My husband and i stayed at calypso for 4 nights. It was the right decision, We rented through sterling and received great service ! Every time we went out for anything there was no one waiting at the elevator and when there were it was only a few. The View was fantastic on the 19th floor ,condo was spotless.....And PIER PARK ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!Will Be definitely going back....

Rented a condo at Calypso Resort for a long weekend thru Blue Sun Properties. Stayed for 4 nights. Stayed during September. 2 1/2 bedroom/2 bath. Very beautiful condo. Very clean. The kitchen and living room were very comfortable. Great view from the balcony. We stayed during the last week of September. The crowd was very minimal. Felt like we had the pool and the beach to ourselves. The cost of our condo also covered beach chair rental and our unit had 2 folding chairs stored in the laundry room for us to use. The weather was perfect and the proximity to Pier Park Mall was great. We could walk to a nice restaurant each night. Had rented a car but only used it to drive to and from the airport. We'll definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Travel in the off season to avoid crowds.

Property was nice. Good location/Clean/Up to date but Sterling.... YIKES! We went to checkin & were told our room was not ready yet but would be shortly. After a 16hr drive & standing around for 3hrs we finally got into our room after 6pm. It was very nice. Staff is NOT helpful so don't expect or ask for ANYTHING! We had a person knocking on our door @10am on the dot to rush us out & they don't even have the luggage carts available @ that time so we had to make multiple trips to the parking garage. Why would they not have this service open for guests @10am when everyone is checking out? So looks good going in & not so good going out. We needed to extend our trip by 1 more day & were just told that it was impossible for them to accommodate us. Went next door to Oasis office (next to Fatty's) & the woman was so helpful & found us a room. She saved the day & I will use them to book next time.

Don't book thru Jonis resort rentals!!!! Customer service is horrible once u pay for rental! Condo wasn't clean, floors dirty,toilet broken, no pool bracelets. Called Joni and she didnt apologize just said she would send someone. I will go back to Calypso but book thru Sterling or Book-It.

We rented a condo off of VRBO and we had a great time. The room was on the 14th floor and had 3 rooms with a king, a queen, and a bunk bed. This worked great for our family of five. The owner left us a parking pass and the orange wristbands to wear at the pool and while we were on the property. The kids loved the pool and the beach. My husband and I loved the Tiki Bar right by the pools. It was a fun adventure and we hope to return in the future!

This was the second time we stayed at the Calypso. We returned because of the great location and beautiful view of the gulf. The condo was well kept and clean. What I didnt know when I booked the condo was that you have to pay a $174 cleaning fee that was not included in the rental price and there is not towel service.
