    by

    want to pay 500 a night to be abused, interrogated and harrassed by the owners of the individual residences? then stay here. orherwise find somewhere on the beach. the main hotel is a wyndam and they refuse you access to the boat to shell island, so youll be driving 30 minutes to the beach. dont be fooled this is not a marriot. there is no management, youll find out the rules through being bullied by the owners of the residences. no room service, no phone to the "front desk" which is a joke. you have to call from your cell phone and then it goes to voice mail always. the "manager" never called back or addressed any of the problems we reported. there is absolutely nothing to do, NO restaurants. the pool is pitiful. you have to walk to the "main" pool which trust me is NOT a Marriot Resort style pool. The "recreation" area is a tiny tiny plot with a bean bag toss, a basketball hoop on top of a miniature shuffleboard court. this place is atrocious. my kids were harrassed over over again by some territorial residence owner. your room key WONT even allow you access to the pool or rec area, so you then have to go and virtually pull teeth to get one, forget two, so your whole party will have to share it. and parking, good luck, youll get threatening notes all over your cars. marriott has no business associating its name to this outfit, and the residence owners don't deserve a dime of rental income. i was confronted by a residence owner who refused to allow my wife and 19 month old daughter into the pool area, because my two older kids had the access card. the three bedroom villa accomodates eight, but i promise you if you bring 8 people, youll be treated like you belong in the ghetto. attached is a photo of just one of the admonishing notes we received from some short sighted owners.

    Unique Quality: There is NO and I mean NO view at all whatsoever.

    Directions: you can drive 30 minutes to a public beach

Ocean fishing and must see places

by kebmod

We would like to find an affordable charter to try some ocean fishing and if you know of any places that would be on a "must see" list, your input would be appreciated. We picked the Legacy By the Sea and have 5 days to live it up.
Thanks for any replies in advance!

RE: Ocean fishing and must see places

by CindyInItaly

The most popular place to go fishing from in PCB is at Treasure Island Marina. They have deep sea fishing charters $50 from 8a-4p. You get to keep as many as you catch and only have to pay if you want them cleaned at the marina. Bring a lunch and plenty of sunscreen. (oh, and don't forget the dramamine!) Here's the link to their website:

Travel Tips for Panama City Beach

Vortex Springs Diving

by MatthewMetcalfe

Vortex Springs is a natural Spring 45 minutes north of Panama City in Ponce De Leon Florida. Aside from being a great dive training site, the water is clear and offers the cave diver a new cave to explore.

For those who are training, there's a dive bell and man made caves to train in as well as platforms for learning. The water is a cool 72 year round. I wore a 3 mil shorty over a 3 mil full suit with gloves and was still a little cold. I recommend a hood as well.

panama city beach florida

by doug48

"the emerald coast a.k.a. the "redneck" rivera"

panama city beach is a very popular beach town in northwest florida. panama city beach should not be confused with the town of panama city on the mainland. both of these two towns have a very different atmosphere. panama city beach is a crowded touist town while panama city is a historic old florida town with a more laid back attitude. panama city beach gets it's nickname "the redneck rivera" from the numbers of visitors from nearby alabama and georgia. in the spring of each year panama city is invaded by over 100,000 college students for spring break. panama city beach has a number of "mega" bars which cater to the college crowd. panama city beach is lined with high rise condos and hotels and has scores of bars and restaurants. panama city beach can be a very different town depending on the time of the year. in the summer panama city caters to families on vacation. in the spring the town is taken over by drunken college students. in the winter panama city is a very quiet beach town. depending on your interests consider the time of year to plan your visit. personally i like to visit panama city in the fall when the prices are lower and the summer crowds are gone.
