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!
