For starters, this is private owned condo's, or property managed, not a 'hotel'. This is my first stay at Shores (returning visitor to PCB) so I can't speak for others or other units. Ours however was top notch inside. Jared from Stay at Shores was excellent to deal with. Prompt with replies, no frills, no second guessing the value or...

The pool and beach are amazing. With Pineapple Willies next door and the bar/food huts on the pool deck, you never have to leave. There are jet ski and paddleboard rentals right on the beach out front. You can walk across the street to a Super Walmart if you need anything and there is a Waffle House and Gas Station/Convenience...

I must say that Unit 414 is everything I could have wished for! It was beautiful and so relaxing! The balcony overlooked the fabulous pools and beach. Everything was like a visit to paradise!

Our overall stay was fine. The unit we had was a 2-bedroom condo. Sleeps 8. It was nice! Full kitchen, bunk beds, 2 full bathrooms and a half bath. However, the cleanliness was not great. For the $150 cleaning fee, they charge it should be spotless. It seemed the carpet had not been cleaned in ages. We definitely wore sandals/shoes...

Your good experience was because you rented from an individual owner. Please understand that there is a rental management property on site that rents units from a bulk owner who owns 270 units at Shores of Panama. You will always have a better experience renting individually by owners directly. Claudette Losier manages her unit herself. Her number is 989-705-4380. If...

When we arrived we were charged $370.00 in additional charges. The condo was not adequately maintained. The parking was a disaster. There is no logic to it.

I am so sorry for your bad experience at Shores of Panama. Unfortunately, you rented from the management company that manages rentals for a bulk owner of 270 units. There are many owners that rent individually and that is who you need to contact, if you decide to give Shores another chance.

I apologize on behalf of Shores of Panama! I hope you can see other posts I have made. It sounds like you did not rent a condo with a reserved parking spot but also sounds like you were given no help! If a sheet were given below to each guest do you think it would help? Many guests have a condo with a reserved parking spot on the same floor as the condo and already go from car to condo without using elevators . Most condos have a reserved spot but may not be on the same floor so if during peak season if they could unload, load, luggage, groceries, on the floor they have a condo and then go park in their reserved spot it would make the elevators a lot faster and remove the stress on them. Also if people knew about set of elevators by the beach would relieve stress on those by parking garage. Please let me know. Since you did not have a reserved spot it may have not helped the parking but if others did would help the elevators

PARKING AND ELEVATORS

Thank you for visiting Shores of Panama. We need your help with elevators and parking during peak season. Thank you in advance for your help. This building has attached covered parking floors 1-12. Please load or un-load on the floor you are occupying if floor 1-12 so luggage is not going in the elevator. For condos above Parking Garage load and un-load on TOP 2 floors of Covered parking so luggage is not going in elevators floor 1-10. If you should need a luggage cart send one person with Drivers license to the outside front of the lobby. Many owners have a cart in condo. There are 6 elevators. 4 elevators with easy access to parking garage and 2 at the front of the building toward beach on the Pineapple Willy’s side. If going to beach and pool if possible use the elevators closest to the beach if on that side. Thank you for your help!

Reserved Parking spots are marked on the floor. They are marked with the CONDO UNIT NUMBER. Please be sure to get directions from your rental agent to your parking spot. If you rented a condo that does not have reserved parking look for an open spot not marked. If you were given a parking map with parking spot numbers you will need to follow the map but the spaces are only marked with reserved spots with condo unit number. If you park in a reserved spot and not renting the condo the owner of that spot will have you towed, please do not park in reserved spot unless you are occupying that condo.

1.) Find parking

2.) Secure your key or key code to your condo and go check it out!

3.) Follow the above directions for loading and unloading luggage and groceries so the elevators are free to move people. House keeping should also be told to do the same

Can get your car and load or unload at the floor you have a condo on

  1-12. load or unload in loading zone at entrance to condo building when walking out of garage. If have condo on floors above the parking garage we have load and unload zone on the top 2 floors of the garage.

By doing this you will leave the elevators free to move people not luggage, cleaning carts or groceries and is much easier for you to go from car to condo or at least as few steps as possible.. Thank you for staying at Shores of Panama as we get ready for the new renovations to be done!
