My husband and I loved the condo we rented at this resort. Our condo was very clean and tidy. We had a two bed and two bath. We were on the fourth floor and had a very nice view of the beach. We personally didn't have any problems with noise like I had read on other reviews, but we were...

We enjoyed our stay at Sterling Reef. Beautiful view of the beach overlooking the Pier as well. We found this listing through VRBO. Owners are very easy to work with. Kitchen is fully equipped. We enjoyed several cook in dinners at this unit. Definitely is home away from home. Location of this condo is just right. Away from the crowd...

My husband and I enjoy this unit so much. This unit has the luxury upgrade. Everything seems so clean and fresh. When you first walk in, you can still smell the fresh paint. We enjoyed our labor day weekend here. Kitchen was fully equipped, bedroom looking over the gulf. My husband got up early to look at the sunrise. We...

We stayed in a 3 bedroom 3 bath unit. The first impressions were not good; no luggage carts anywhere with no effort from management to help, only two very slow (and worn/dirty) elevators for a very large property, the dirtiest carpet I have ever seen in a rental, missing or burned out bulbs in lamps, broken dishwasher, ice maker had...

Just got back from 6 days here during July 4 week. Panama City Beach was very crowded this week especially Beach Front Road; however, our stay here was great. We stayed in Unit 602 and the accomodations, decorations, supplies, etc. were excellent. This appears to be a family type accomodation and there was no excessive noise, partying or anything else...

We stayed here last week of June for a wedding. We had booked through vrbo.com and it was awesome to walk into a condo and recognize the place. Three bedroom two bath and very well stocked. Only issue we had was my son was getting in the shower (which is a tub shower combo of a garden tub) and got...

This was a nice condo unit, but it was not very insulated as other condo units. I could hear people moving chairs in the unit above mine. I was told it was age limit of 25 and up to book at this resort, but there were a lot of spring breakers that made it in there. The pool had to...

We stayed in Unit 806 at this property which was new to the rental market and a good value. We purchased the week as an "extra vacation" through RCI. The property is older, but unit was upgraded with tile in living area and granite in the kitchen. The furnishings were older but comfortable. Carpet in bedrooms was worn but clean....

We stayed at Sterling Reef over the past weekend, for 5 days. We were frankly dissapointed on how small the rooms were in comparison to other places we have stayed in PCB. On top of that there were lots of minor issue which added up to a place that is really not worth top dollar to stay at. The carpets...

“All of these balconies face the gulf and look down on the pool. The higher the room, the longer trip on the elevator...remember that. Make sure to specify that you don't want bunks if need be (see above).”
