Our family of five arrived and were very taken with the unit. The view is spectacular from the balcony being a top floor unit, nice not having to deal with any noise from above, just the sound of the waves crashing on the shore! The kitchen is very well stocked with everything needed to make breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. The huge tv was great to watch endless episodes of Pawn Stars!!
W/D worked perfectly. We would absolutely stay here again.
Recommended for: Families with young children, romantic getaway, families with teenagers.

Room Tip: Get a top floor unit if you can, makes all the difference to cut out excess noise!

The condo building is a little outdated but it is worth the prices! The beaches were beautiful and right outside the condo door. Water was crystal clear and a beautiful green blue! This will be our new spot for family vacations!

We stayed in the main tower in A738 which was a 1 bedroom 2 bath unit. The draw to this unit was the 2 pull out sleeper sofas. It allowed for our family of 5 to stay without getting a 2 bedroom unit. We were only staying 4 nights so we didn't need the 2 bedrooms. All units are individually owned so things will vary. We had a great view of the lake and a balcony overlooking the gulf. Our unit had 3 TV's but only 1 worked (the cable box for the other two would not turn on). The furnishings were a little dated which we knew from the online pictures. The carpet was in need of cleaning or being replaced. The kitchen had everything we needed but was a bit small. It had a poor layout and you could not fully open the oven door. The main tower has 3 elevators but only 2 were working during our stay. It was "okay" since it wasn't really busy. There are 2 pools which is nice but we only used the big one. Saunas are nice but a hot tub would be nicer. The grounds are well maintained but the "lobby" area of the main tower could use some updating. It is very 80's. The best thing about Pinnacle Port is location. It is close enough to everything but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. There are no condos to the right so you have a lot of beach area to spread out away from anyone.

Room Tip: For the main tower, pick level 7, 9 or PH. The higher up the better the view.

Rented unit C1401 with two friends. The building was easy to find and right on the beach. Bare-bones building with an elevator and some carts. Cell service is horrible

The Pinnacle Port condos have two swimming pools -- one is little and in the sun, one is big and half inside/half outside with a big patio overlooking the ocean and a snack bar. The snack bar is good.

There is no hot tub which turned out to be something we really wanted on a cold and cloudy day. There are two saunas, but they are gender-specific and take 30 minutes to heat up. The gym is only for owners and long-term renters -- not vacationers.

The condo was fine. Spacious, well-laid-out, nice view. Furniture is tired but clean. Kitchen was well-furnished but missing things like dishwasher detergent.

The screen door to the balcony was stuck. Maintenance came and the plan was for them to break the door down -- that didn't happen -- the force got the door open. The maintenance worker didn't identify the problem -- inches of rusted sand in the door track. We asked for a blower and WD-40 to fix it, but she said just leave the door open. We scraped out the sand with a knife so we could open and close the door without worrying about getting stuck.

Especially frustrating because the solution was so obvious and the problem was so preventable in the first place.

The location and beach are fantastic.

Online photos did NOT show current condition of this unit. So disappointed! Left within 24 hrs w/three kids in tow to find other condo during super busy spring break. Here are just a few of the thing we found:
1. Broken plastic patio furniture, cracked, in pieces. This was noted and identified online in past reviews.
2 Door handle to patio broken. …in past reviews.
3. Broken vertical blinds….in past reviews.
4 Yellow stains on underside of master bedspread.
5 Hair in master bath drawers, on bath floors.
6. Refrigerator and freezer shelves are duct taped together, odors.
7. AC vents are dirty, covered in black substance. Mold? Dirt? Probably in vents as well causing sour odor throughout unit. Thermostat is decades old.
8. Tubs need replacing or reglaze. Shower doors: Years of mold has built up under caulk. Needs to be removed, cleaned, recaulked, or replaced.
9. Towel rod was broken, laying on counter.
10. No wifi in unit. Online promo for unit is misleading.
11. No tvs in children's rooms. This was something I asked about when on the phone with rental staff. 12. Remote to DVD/VCR has no back, sealed with electrical tape, and batteries have corroded and leaked acid. Can not get av equip to work at this point. Another problem with kids + rainy weather.
13. Kitchen faucet runs constantly.
14. Outlets in baths are defective. Will not hold plugs when they are inserted. Unit needs attention and maintenance from a licensed electrician!
The owners of unit B1 405 need to invest in rehabilitation and repair of this property. There are several other issues. It is not right for renters to pay market price for a unit that is not in clean, functional condition. The HOA and management company have a responsibility to guests/customers. The owners of this worn ,out property should NOT be allowed to offer it for rent. We requested that the manager and GM walk the property with us to see damage in person, but they would not. Talked to other renters, and while I'm sure someone there was in a nice unit and happy, the four couples we spoke with were all unhappy with their condos. We left within 24 hours, found a wonderful 3bd/3ba at the Sunrise Beach Resort, unit 1401, higly recommend.

We stayed here with our one year old and our 5 year old. Our room was very close to the water and it was very clean. We rented from someone off of VRBO.com. I highly recommend checking out this site if you haven't already. We use this site for all our beach and Disney Vacations. The resort itself outside our room was also very nice. It was older but nothing about it was dirty. They have a very nice big open beach. To the left is other resorts and to the right is nothing but beach, it sits on one of the best spots in Panama City in my opinion. You also are right next to the lake which is great for fishing. There are areas to sit outside to eat and grill food. The pool was very nice with a concession stand and half of it being under a roof for great shade. It is at the beginning of Panama City but that was not a problem at all. You are close to a CVS and the traffic is much better on this side. Also, it's only a 20-30 minutes drive to Destin, which we did twice. It has the biggest outlet mall in the US there and nice restaurants like Fudpuckers. It was a great vacation and a nice place to stay, I was not disappointed at all with the resort.

This is my family's second trip to Pinnacle Port. My husband used to stay here when he was younger (back when it was THE place to stay). While it is out there, away from the city center, we enjoy the calmer atmosphere. The beaches are not as crowded, it is a gated area, and it had several amenities like an indoor/outdoor pool with food service, another outdoor pool, tennis courst, boat storage area (for $10 a week I believe), WiFi area, plenty of carts to haul your belongings to your room, etc.

We like the tower building because of the two level townhouse arrangement, and it's closest to the main pool. Lake Powell is behind the building. I am a photographer and enjoy sitting on the balcony watching and photographing storms rolling in from the ocean. I've gotten some great lightning shots. One unit we stayed in we watched sharks swimming along the shoreline.

The building is outdated and shows it age. Keep in mind, this was a posh place back in 1975 according to my husband. The hallways have been updated with better lighting and ac since we were there 2 years ago. The air is still stagnate and stinks though. Some units have been completely refurbished. Prices vary depending on how many bedrooms you want, location, and furnishings. The unit we just stayed in had its own WiFi (very nice and speedy) and an Xbox for the kids to use.

We went through VRBO to rent a unit. You can also rent through Pinnacle Port. Do your homework before signing a contract. Be sure to see photos of the unit, especially the views so you won't be disappointed. The units are individually owned and maintained by different people. Some look very nice in the photos, and some look plain and outdated. Some rent by the week or month only, and others will rent by the day (often with a min of 3 days).

Word of warning: the complex controls the water temp and it is VERY VERY hot. We only turned on the hot water a tad.

There are a few restaurants right nearby, plus a Publix (which I love) and a Winn Dixie. You are about 20 minutes from the city center.

Room Tip: The higher up, the better view of what's swimming in the water. I like the wing with rooms endi...
