Calypso Towers - Are all Waterstone properties this bad????

You must be nuts if you want to stay at this place, the reviews tell the story, bad service at the front desk, dirty, parking sucks no luggage carts and the elevators take 20 min to arrive. I suggest you should stay away from this Waterstone property!

I will never stay at any Waterstone property again, and I advise that you do not either. When we arrived at the resort for check in the balance the front desk had for us was $600 more than our confirmed balance with the reservation line. When I explained that to the front desk they smugly told me that they would... more

when we arrived at 4:30, there was a line of 6-7 cars trying to unload in front of each tower. no carts were available, the security guards were barking for us to move our cars to the deck, the wait for the elevator was at least 20-30 minutes with only 1 out of the 3 working (for 23 floors!). problem... more

This was THE WORST vacation we ever had in PCB. The Calypso is a nice place but has MAJOR problems with personnal and management. Very rude. Do not call the front desk for anything because they do not care about anything you have to say. Our room was dirty. The grounds were dirty. Broken elevators. The TIKI bar which they... more

NEVER will I stay at the Calyso Resort again. The Front desk staff were rude and unfriendly. They acted like you were putting them out if you asked for anything. The security was very lean and could not handle all the problems that were going on. We stayed in Feb. and half of March and I was glad to leave.... more

we loved our unit at calypso. we took the advice from some other folks and rented from this is essentially an owner renting his units. we were able to check in long before the crowds gathered at the onsite rental company. in fact, they had our unit cleaned and ready by noon. the owner also provided us our own... more

Upon arrival we parked on the 3rd level of the parking deck. The deck is across from the towers. Low and behold there are no carts. None. I never saw an unused cart the entire trip. I think people hoard them in their rooms. We check in - first floor - wife goes ballistic, but after reading about elevator service... more

Pros: convenient to pier park shopping development, new property, nice rooms, well-groomed property Cons: SLOW elevators, hardly any luggage carts available, inconvenient parking, approximately 25 chairs per pool (basically there is one chair per floor!), no depth to property - very narrow (unlike other properties on Thomas Drive) I booked this property thinking that it would be great to be... more

Calypso Condo's were absolutely beautiful, however several inconveniences will make sure that we do not stay there again. The elevators are extremely slow. We waited on average 15 minutes for a quick ride on the elevator. At times, we gave up and took the stairs. The hallways are very narrow, making passing impossible when you have luggage, groceries, etc. Luggage... more

Just returned from a week with the family to PCB and Calypso Towers. We have been going to PCB for over 30 years and I felt overall the resort is nice but is not worth the amount you pay. We had (2) three bedroom units with six people in each unit. The units themselves are nice with a great view.... more


"Great ocean/beach location, condo units variable in upkeep"
FamilyTraveler3 Indiana, Pennsylvania Mar 28, 2008
The Calypso advertises itself as a more upscale condo complex on the west side of Panama City Beach. The location and beach are terrific. If you are looking for services that approach those found in mid-range hotels you should look elsewhere. While there is a front desk area, they do not go out of their way to be friendly or... more

We stayed at the Calypso this past summer during our son's baseball tournament. We were on the 19th floor. I rented through an owner on VRBO. The 1bdrm with bunks unit was awesome. Very clean and beautifully decorated. The owner supplied everything including beach mats, towels, floats, boogie boards, etc. We had absolutely not complaints regarding the condition of our... more

This is not what I would consider a "resort". I will begin by saying that the condos were large, spacious and delightfully decorated. That is the best I can say about this facility. The condo was dirty, the common spaces were dirty and it didn't appear the windows had been cleaned in some time! Vomit lay in the hall for... more


"Worst trip to PCB ever!"
travelaholiclady Gadsden, AL Jul 19, 2007
We booked a 1br/ 2ba condo back in June. When we arrived they tried to charge me for a 2br/ 2ba and told me that they had no 1br/ 2ba condos left. The managenment would not believe me and told me that they needed proof. Luckily I had printed my email confirmation and brought it with me. They decided to... more
