“Family Vacation”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

After reading the bad reviews, I was a bit apprehensive about making reservations for our family vacation at Splash Resort. I booked our condo through Panhandle Getaways and contacted them about a couple of minor issues that needed to be resolved. I spoke with 3 different employees of Panhandle Getaways, and apparently, none of them have a clue about how to resolve anything and were no help whatsoever. They assured me the issues would be resolved, and they would promptly call me with answers. I'm certainly glad I didn't waste my entire vacation waiting for that phone call! None of those issues were a reflection of Splash Resort, and I was pleasantly surprised by the friendliness and courtesy of the Splash staff. The condo was nice, the pools were maintained and operational, and the resort was clean. After reading horror stories about the elevators here, I was concerned about having a condo on the 17th floor. Our longest wait for an elevator was less than 3 minutes, and only once did it take that long due to everyone coming inside due to a sudden storm. I would definitely recommend Splash Resort, and would have no problems staying again, but I will go through a different agency for booking next time.

Room Tip: Will not book through Panhandle Getaways again.

We booked for the week of 7/28 - 8/4. We stayed in room 501/A. The location of the resort is so very far from activities (go carts, putt putt, etc.). You will spend a lot of time driving to/from. The elevator situation is beyond ridiculous. Our room had mildew in bathroom, tub that wouldn't drain, and broken fixtures. The bedroom had paint peeling from wall and was very, very dirty. We washed bedding before sleeping. The facilities overall are not well taken care of. Not worth the price.

My parents, my family (3), and my sister family (3) spent Memorial Day weekend in PCB at Splash. The place was nice and very family friendly. It is on the strip but not in the congested area. View of the Gulf was amazing, the beach area was very clean, and the pools were fun. Probably the best place to stay if bringing kids. Had a slight leak in the bathroom and maintenance was there in 2 hours and tightened a screw and we were good. The only recommendation is the elevator situation since there are only 2 elevators for the entire place. We will return to Splash...

Room Tip: The higher the better...for the views.

The pools, waterslides in the shade are a great idea!! However a lifeguard during peak seasons would be a great addition. The hot tub shud be in a separate adult area. The deck around pool area is severely congested, barely any chaises for parents to watch their kids.
Elevators- hmm this was a disaster!! I can't begin to even explain it. There are 2 series of elevators u must take to get oi yur condo. 1 from parking deck to Lobby. Then another in the building. The amount of ppl when compared to the elevators is ridiculous! It took us 1.5 hrs to get a cart & get our stuff into the room. Another 30 min to be able to return the cart.
Our rental was on the 9th floor from 'best beach getaways', probably paid close to $500/night for a 2 bdrm. The entite place was pretty dirty Overall. The kitchen was very poorly equipped (one non stick pan had rust in it!!). They provided absolutely no dish soap, 2packs of DW detergent, nothing to clean or dry the dishes with- there was no way all 5 if us cud even drink water with the amount of glasses they had!!
Dust everywhere! The fan in the LR had an inch of filth on it!!! The couches had visible stains that looked disgusting, didn't even wanna sit on them!
Walls were not painted or touched up in years!
Patio furniture not only was old, rusty & dangerously wobbly but didn't even match each other!!!
The bathrooms had 'facial' soap that was worse than motel soap! Forget shampoo!
There was a lamp that was made of glass that was broken- right where the switch is! Had to wait for them to come get it out, they didn't even replace it during our stay!
When I asked to have extra DW detergent, they said they don't normally
Give extra, but made an exception (what?!?!)
So note to self: if u want motel quality service, amenities, cleanliness... Then rent thru BBG but u will still pay high dollar!! Splash itself could use a few improvements but mainly in the deck area & elevator situation.

Very roomy condos and a great place for kids. Beautiful beachfront condos all with balconies. Location makes easy street access and it is not located on the congested side of Front Beach Blvd.

We had major hotel problems, and walked into Splash to get a rate. They gave us a discount and was very nice and accommodating and we stayed there for 4 nights. Beautiful room. Perfect. Dishwasher didn't work, but everything else perfect. If you have little kids you will like the pools, but we had teenagers and did not like the pools. Not good pools for adults or teenagers.

This place is beautiful and clean and the staff is very nice. It's VERY family oriented though, so good if you have little children, bad if you have teen agers that are interested in meeting other people their age. Families with older kids don't seem to stay here. My kids were disappointed. The pool area sucks; most of the pool area is under the building so it never gets sun and it's freezing. Once again though, it's meant for children and trying to protect children from getting sunburnt. Our room though was absolutely gorgeous and our view was gorgeous.
