Palazzo is probably THE nicest condominium in Panama City Beach (PCB). Unlike the typical, larger high rise condos in PCB, Palazzo is only 129 units (17 floors), making its 220' of beach front far less crowded than most other PCB condos. It has a unique, elevated gulf-front pool and spa, decorative waterfall, gulf-front lobby, and three high speed elevators.
The upgraded kitchen has stainless steel appliances, wood cabinets, and granite counter tops. Our 7th floor unit has upgraded tile floors throughout (with area rugs where appropriate), and
9' ceilings for an airy feel. Floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows and sliding doors open to the beachfront balcony from both the Living Room, and Master Bedroom. Large HDTV's in living room and 2 bedrooms. Large balcony with Pub height table with 4 swivel chairs, plus 2 fully reclining loungers with side tables.
We have a keyless punch code access system, so there is no need to keep track of card keys, or worry about misplacing them while at the beach, etc.
Our unit also has its own secure, high speed wireless internet access. The building lobby also has wireless internet.
Palazzo is on the west end of PCB, within walking distance of the beautiful new "Pier Park"--a terrific, pedestrian-friendly area with shopping, dining, movie theaters, and town park. The beaches on the west end of PCB are far less crowded than those on the east end of PCB. Unlike the vast majority of condo buildings in PCB, Palazzo has parking under the building (not across the street), so it is much more convenient, and not a long hike every time you return from grocery shopping or dining out. It has a heated Gulf view pool, hot tub, and full exercise facility. There is a nice Winn Dixie grocery store just one block away. an inexpensive trolley service makes it easy to ride up and down Front Beach Road to visit other PCB locations.
If you are looking for a brand new, cheerful, very well-decorated place to relax and refresh, this is it. We chose the 7th floor because it is close enough to the sand to hear the surf (but not people down below), providing easy access to the water and a beautiful view, without being too high to feel uncomfortable while enjoying the balcony.
While we encourage families, the decor is geared toward adults, and assumes responsible, well-behaved children. We do have a large movie and music library, table games, beach toys and games, and beach chairs and umbrellas--even golf clubs--all for free use by our guests.
