Easy to find from airport. Friendly staff. Clean condo. Surprised to find no hairdryer in room. Also, no start up coffee. All other supplies were plentiful for a weekend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"25 and over for everyone."
At the start it dirty was a 100 dollar cleaning fee before everything else. Secondly when we tried to check in the personal were ridiculously rude. The condo was dirty (sand on plates and no clean sheets) even worse was no toilet paper or trsdsh bags all the things that are complimentary service. The TV didn't work, dirty silverware, and half the lights […] didn't work. For the price and service its not worth it. Would recommend the sandpiper tho. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"spring break vacation"
Had a good time. Hotel was in close distance to all of the hot spots. Good place, wish I could have stayed longer than 3 nightsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent place. Will go back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time. DO NOT BOOK DURING SPRING BREAK (if you're over the age of 25) Lots of kiddos everywhere! Elevators werent working while we were there which was frustrating, but other than that, we had a great time. Staff was helpful and pleasant, location was AWESOME and our room/balcony was great. I Would book there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place for the family"
Great time, clean condo, good time with the family. You do a really long time for the elevators that was to be expected and read that in the reviews before I got there so I wasn't surprised at all. The view was great. The pool and hot tub was kept clean even it was too cold to get in the outside pools cause they were heated but the hot tub was the […] perfect temperature even for my three-year-old playing it for hours of time Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The best family vacation hotel ever!"
The staff was wonderful. Although we lost cable/internet for a couple of hours, the staff, location, and room made up for it all. I would recommed this hotel to anyone looking for some fun time at the beach. GOLD STAR!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noisy place,horrible internet service, nice beach!"
Internet almost non existent first several days. People monitoring check in desk could not help and even lost their own service one day. Also lost cell service for a day. Spent lots of time at Starbucks who had no issues with service! Noise from upstairs room horrible as they constantly dragged chairs across the floor. Toilet needed repair first thing […] & whoever cleaned it should have noticed but at least maintenance did come right away. Will stay at that beach again but not that place! Oh, and elevator on week-ends...good luck! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved our condo. Was very clean and up to date. The kitchen is fully stocked. We did bring a crockpot which they had all other appliances. The service was good but it is not like a hotel. No one is there to answer questions after hours. Security guard knows alot though. They do have an elevator issue but when u have that many people what do u expext. […] We will definetly be back. Thank you Tidewater beach resort for the memories! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very bad hotel serviec"
The staff on the hotel are very roude espically on the receptionGenuine Expedia guest review
"Will never stay in this hotel again!"
The stay in the hotel was the worst experience we had in Panama city. We were not aware of the rule that you have to be 25+ in order to check in. When we checked in it was 11:00 PM and there were no one in the front desk. So, we got the keys through the automatic system. The next day, we were not able to unlock the room. When we asked the reception, […] they said to leave the hotel in one hour as we were not 25+. We were even ready to pay security deposit or extra amount. But they didn't hear anything. There were 2 security guards waiting in front of our room to make sure that we pack our stuffs and leave. We were literally kicked out of the hotel for the age reason. We 5 guys were 23+ and all are international students. Also we were made to pay extra amount for "cleaning charge". They also have "no return policy". We booked the room for 4 days and we were kicked out after the first day. But they didn't return the money. I had to ask hotels.com to get my money back. Nothing can compensate for the way we were treated. I will never stay in this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, enjoyed the amenities"
Nice location, had trouble getting into heated pool area not sure if I was keying code wrong or if there was problem with the door.Genuine Expedia guest review
The employees were inconsistent and incompetant when it came to information. Everyone told me something different. They were obviously poorley trained. They were also rude and unfriendly. I will never stay at this hotel again. Wish I would have listened to the reviews.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful hotel with a balcony right on the beach"
The only problem I had is the elevator. Had to wait on it with so many people there at the hotel to made the wait longGenuine Expedia guest review
It was great, had the beach front condo and it was just so perfect. Don't go in March though, it's still a little chilly and we couldn't really lounge by the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great property on the beach. My family enjoyed it!"
Loved our condo! The views were fantastic and the price was reasonable for the value received. The effort required trying to add an additional night to an existing reservation was frustrating. Not sure why it had to be so difficult.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pass this one by, many better choices to stay on this gorgeous beach."
This was my first & last time to use Expedia. Very dissatisfied with this hotel. Bed was an old spring mattress, very uncomfortable. Carpets were filthy. Bathtub drain was clogged. Bedroom side table lamp not working. Front porch was dirty. Sofa had stains all over it. Then to top it all off we discovered the second day that only 3 elevators were working […] and this resort has thirty floors. We were on the twenty-first floor so this made for very lengthy waits for the elevator. Not to mention the danger this would be in the event of an emergency. Yelp reviews revealed this is an ongoing problem with this hotel with reviews complaining about it from even last April 2013. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice views on the beach"
We came for a softball tournament close to the fields but enjoyed the hotel more than the ball we will be back that's a promiseGenuine Expedia guest review
I believe it was room 1418 that we stayed in, its a front corner room. We had a great view of the Gulf and of the night life. The room was very nice and very well decorated and came with good patio furniture, not cheap crap. We had no issues with waiting on elevators like others are saying. We were there the first week of October and to be honest, we […] only SHARED an elevator I believe twice our whole stay. Plenty of chairs on the beach that you got 2 free rentals with your room. There is a drainage pipe going into ocean near hotel, but does no harm, kids were even playing in that water. Pools are very big but a little bit cold I admit, feels nice on a warm day though. Had alot of fun at local attractions, though that time of year winter hours are in effect and some places are even closed. Pier Park was a short walk away and a good place to do some shopping or eat at a nice restaurant. The outdoor hallways did freak my wife out a little bit being on a higher floor, but didnt bother her much after a day or two. One thing that did surprise me was that we came at an "after hours" time, which for a hotel of this size I was shocked to see nobody at the front desk at all. I would think there would be at least somebody there 24/7. So we had to call a number on a box there and they gave us a code to get into it and was able to get our info and room key in there. We also really enjoyed the free DVD rentals. We were surprised to see some good new releases there that we rented. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

VERY GOODGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a wonderful room on the top (30th) floor in the corner with a magnificent view of the Gulf. I was just surprised when I arrived that I was required to pay a maintenance fee on top of the rate for the room. Never having stayed in a condo before, I didn't know to ask that question before I made reservations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"VERY CONVENIENT TO PIER PARK"
WE LOVED THE CONVENIENCE TO PIER PARK AND OTHER ATTRACTIONS. WE VACATIONED IN SEPTEMBER SO TRAFFIC AND WAIT TIMES WERE MINIMAL. OUR ROOM WAS NICE FOR OUR FAMILY OF THREE. THERE WAS HOWEVER, AN ODOR FROM THE HALLWAY BATHROOM AND THE FLOORS WEREN'T VERY CLEAN. OVERALL WE ENJOYED OUR STAY AND HAD NO PROBLEMS.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel nice, Room not so much"
The hotel was nice. Our room was in need of alot of upgrades. For the price it was not taken care of at all. There was an odor when we first arrived. I told the front desk who said they would send housekeeping up to take care of the problem. Housekeepings solution was to spray a 1/2 bottle of Frebreeze around and leave. All of the fixtures in the bathrooms […] were rusted. The patio furniture was so rusted we had to lay down towels to sit down. Our keys to the rooms stopped working not once, not twice but 4 times. Which was a huge pain! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Don't stay here!"
This was not a good experience for a first-time Expedia customer.The hotel was in need of repair.The ELEVATORS were a nightmare.The wait could be anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes.Our condo had worn,dirty carpet,old upholstery,and mildew in the shower.Will not return!Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was clean but did not look like pictures on the website. There really wasn't any staff interaction other than checking in. Elevator situation is horrible even on the lower floors. I think it was over priced for what you get.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"15 min elevator waits!"
Should of read reviews. Long waits for elevators that drove my kids nuts. Will not stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stay away from unit 2015!"
The hotel itself is nice and the people at the front desk were friendly. The elevators are very slow and at times it was frustrating to have to wait 20 mins. just to go downstairs. The problem is that it's a gamble on whether or not you will receive a clean unit that is worth the money. We stayed in unit 2015 and it was absolutely horrible, especially […] for the amount of money we paid. There is lack of furniture and what is there is old and dirty, there are massive stains in the carpet, the ceiling in the kitchen has water damage, the beds are extremely uncomfortable, the mattress on the pull-out couch is coming apart, exposing all springs and filling, and it desperately needs to be repainted. This sounds like an over-exaggerated review, but unfortunately it truly is not. There is even a guest book in this unit that people have wrote comments in and apparently, this has been a common complaint for over a year, yet the owner has done nothing to correct. If you have that much disregard for the people who are putting money in your pocket, then obviously, you don't care about the consumer. It seems like they know it will get rented out eventually to someone who doesn't have the opportunity to see pictures of their unit directly. That is what happened to my family. So, if you want to stay here, at least know beforehand what unit it will be and view pictures to ensure a happy stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"booked through Expedia"
This was a room through a private ower room 2509 (I guess) booked through Expedia. No problem with the service with Expedia, but the room was a huge disappointment. We booked a King size bed and got a queen. The bedroom furniture was fine but there was only one night table by the bed. The bathroom fan was full of lent. They had a white chair in the […] living room and the fabric was so dirty I would have not had it in my home much less pay to sit in it. The living room furniture, table and chairs, rug and pictures looks like something from a cheap rental apartment. The overall floorplan was and kitchen was fine. Unfortuately they had ac and water problems with the hotel but we lucked up and it did not effect us. In contrast, another family member book the same type ocean front room through the hotel which was beautifully decorated. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A trip we will remember"
If you are looking for somewhere to stay while you are visiting panama city beach, i would definately recommend this hotel. The rooms are spacious and beautiful, and the beach view from your balcony is awesome. Once you step on the ground floor, you are at the beach. The only problems we had were the dryer door wouldnt shut, iron leaked, ironing board […] sucked, and we had air condotioning problems during our last night there. Overall, we had a great time, and it was a trip that we will remember forever =]. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"First Time in Condo"
Tidewater was a great experience. This was the first time I've stayed in a condo (vs a hotel) and I truly enjoyed it. It definitely had the comforts of home. It doesn't have daily maid service (I'm assuming because it is a condo) but that was OK. I really don't care whether the bed is made up or not while I am on vacation. I will definitely consider […] them for future trips to PCB. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Nice clean hotel. Nice that the hotel gives you two beach chairs and a umbrella at no cost. Will stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very clean ! Will stay again"
This was the cleanest condo we have ever stayed in very convenient and close to beach. Elevators a little crowded so prepare during busy hours to wait a little extra time but as expected. Will stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The location is great with great views."
When we arrived, only five of the seven elevators were functioning. It took nearly two hours to get our things from the car to the room. The window of check in is too narrow. Also, the wait for beach chairs in the morning was nearly an hour long. The resort needs to coordinate with the chair operator to alleviate this inconvenience. We lost several […] hours of precious vaction time due to these inadequacies. Also, due to the check in/check out issues, I had a very difficult time locating a luggage cart at 6 AM Friday morning. Apparently, guests take the carts to their rooms the eve of their departure. There were ample carts in the cart area Thursday afternoon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Elevator wait times can take up to 30 minutes."
Upon arrival I received an envelope, containing my room number, key cards, hotel information, etc. After waiting several minutes in a line to board one of the elevators, I discovered upon reaching the 17th floor that the room that I had been assigned was already occupied by a family. I'm sure the family was as surprised to see me as I was to see them […] after I opened their door... I then spent the next 15-20 minutes working my way back onto another elevator back to the lobby where they admitted their mistake and assigned me a new room. Upon arrival in the new "vacant" room, I was greeted by a bed which had a large soiled stain on its comforter. Rather than battle the extensive wait time for the elevators, I elected to remove the comforter and toss it in the closet prior to my fiance's arrival. After staying two nights and paying over $400, I was then hit with a $90 cleaning fee, which clearly isn't being applied as intended (huge blood or food stain on the comforter). Was not satisfied and will likely not return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great condo rental at beach ruined by elevators"
This was a very good value on a nice unit (although some of our friends units were not as nice). However all the many positives were completely negated by a lack of adequate elevator access. When you have a 30 story building, it requires most everyone to use the elevators. Seven unregulated elevators created very lengthy (as long as twenty minutes) […] waits to go up or down. Whether you have kids that are excited to go to the beach or to eat or if you are trying to get back to your room after a long day, facing these delays took the fun out of the otherwise enjoyable stay. There must be some way to control the elevator usage to improve this situation (limiting floor access for elevators?/designating some off limits for luggage carts?) The easy thing to say would cost money and that is additional elevator service and given that the place sells out pretty well I doubt they would be up for spending money. The whole purpose of our stay was a baseball tournament played five minutes from the facility. We headed out 25 minutes before the game and missed the 1st inning due to elevators.
