“We loved Splash”
Reviewed July 23, 2008

If you have little children you will love this place. It was so much fun. I think if you don't have children this would not be the place you would want to go - there is so many children here you have to love children to love this place. We had so much fun watching the children have fun. I think they were at full capacity during our trip so there was lots of people but we still enjoyed every second.
Our condo was very spacious and clean.

Room was very nice; especially Unit 104E. View was also excellent. Elevator situation is ridiculous (especially on Saturdays) and the property managers know it. Two towers, two elevators, long waits. Management should make adjustments to, at least, attempt to provide some relief to their guests. I recommend staggered check-out time or offer bell hop service. Check-out time is 10am. Needless to say, it's an adventure attempting to find a luggage cart or an elevator to transport it in between 8 AM and 10 AM.

Stering Resort Agent, We stayed from July 12 to 19th.
During a girls tournament week for baseball, We were not here wit this group, But I know if any kids were their with other parents they were not aware of the drunk parents that were there.
The resort was not what i expected, I thought there was a bowling alley for kids not a game room with 2 small bowling games. I was shock about the pool areas and the Concession bar what a joke opens at 10 or 11 and closed most of the time before 4. The rental for jet skis and bannana boat ride were ver dangerous aroung the swimming area on the beach, They were rude an obnoxious driving. We even had to call the Coast Guard.
The room was not cleaned properly dust covered, floors not clean. This room had only been rented 4 times prior imagine what it will look like in a few months. Even after he came back to clean it still was not done. The luggage carts and the elevators was the biggest joke ever. I will not recommend this to any one.
My son is 9 yrs old we don't drink and there was too much of this, we would not walk the beach with our son at night do this fact the parents were drinking on the beach and by the pool area.

  • Liked — My room did have a beutiful view
  • Disliked — no phone and no games for kids, the other comments

We spent a week (July 7-12, 2008) at Splash. Four adults and four children between 4 and 7. The kids loved it. Plenty of water activities with the lazy river, the water park, pools, etc. Our unit was great. Property employees were nice. Convenient to grocery stores, etc. Elevator waits were not as bad as I have read in the reviews. We had longer than average waits only one day out of the six. 90% of the time we waited 2-3 minutes at most. Carts were hard to find, but we managed to find one. There were plenty of parking spaces available in the deck directly across the street. Parking is not a problem, unless you are unwilling or unable to walk across the street (via a covered, air conditioned sky bridge).

The bad.....the beach was WAY overcrowded and very dirty. My biggest complaint was related to something that Splash management has no control over, but it still should be a concern to anyone considering coming here. We had rain on Saturday morning. Within an hour of the time it started raining, filthy black water could easily be seen piped from storm drain pipes directly into the ocean within yards of the Splash beach front. I took two pictures of this from our 12th floor unit and it is sickening to see what is being pumped into the beach swimming area directly in front of Splash where we were swimming. See the pictures associated with this review. The beach is empty because it is pouring rain. Within minutes the entire beach swimming area turned a dark black!! See the pictures and make your own mind up, but I will not go back there as long as Panama City is piping filthy storm runoff water directly into the ocean.

  • Liked — Water activities for kids, nice rooms
  • Disliked — Crowded and dirty beach area; Dirty stormwater runoff piped directly into ocean

This is probably the best place we have ever stayed at on the beach! Me and my family (there was a total of 18 of us there, 10 were kids) stayed here in June this year, and we didn't want to go home! We loved it! The room my family and my aunt's family stayed in was flawless! It was super clean and beautifully decorated and the views were gorgeous! We stayed on a corner unit on the 18th floor. We had three balconies over-looking the ocean, and alot of windows. The pools and lazy river were clean and we mostly swam in the shaded areas, which were nice. All of my cousins, including me, loved the pool area. The staff were never rude to any of us. The walk from the parking garage to the building was completely covered, so we never got wet during rain or anything. The only bad thing about this whole entire place is that it there is only 2 elevators per tower, so we had to wait sometimes. But the longest we had to wait that whole entire week was for about 10 minutes on Saturday when we arrived, because that's the day that everyone is leaving and coming.

If you want a nice place to stay for your vacation and want to have fun, definitely stay at Splash!

We loved this place and will definitely be back!

2 towers, 21 floors each, 2 elevators. TROUBLE, you can literally wait for an elevator b/t 10-45 minutes.

40 luggage carts for both towers you can never find one.

the splash pool is directly under the buildings with no sun, the water is freezing for the kids and we were there mid July

rooms are ok, nicely decorated,

for the same or less money, alot of nicer places to stay. I would not go back for 1/2 price rooms, no reason for their oversights.

I was so scared to stay here after reading all the negative reviews. We almost cancelled our reservations for Splash to stay somewhere else but i am so glad we did not. Splash was wonderful. We checked in on Sunday, July 6th...everything at checkin was smooth and we were even able to checkin 2 hours early. At that time there were plenty of carts. We stayed Sunday thru Thursday...checked out about 8:00am. No issues...very smooth. People keep complaining about the elevator...well we only had to wait one time for about 10 mins...that was on Sunday around 3:00 checkin time. Other than that we never had any issues wilth waiting. Our condo was beautiful and very clean.
Kids had a blast at the pools, on the beach and at the arcade. Finding a pool chair was never an issue for us and we would not even get to the pool until 11:00AM or later. I did call the front desk several times to ask questions and they were always friendly and helpful. I think Splash is a wonderful place and am glad i gave it a chance. We are already talking about going back next year.
