NileGuide Expert tip:
Travel sites will usually get you a better price than contacting the condo itself.
The Sunbird condominiums are a set of condos that are owned and occupied for part of the year and leased to vacationers and snowbirds throughout the year. The rooms are beautifully decorated and all come with at least a partial gulf view. The staff was very courteous and helpful and the property is run much like a hotel. The hotel offers many options for fun. First and foremost is the beach. The beautiful sugar white sand and emerald water is only a few steps from the hotel. The condo has multiple pools and a game room as well. One of the nicest things about the Sunbird is the location. Thomas drive is a very popular area that is dotted with more restaurants, family fun parks, and bars than you could possibly visit in one trip. The only downfall to the Sunbird is a slight stray cat problem. I am not sure where they came from, but sitting on the balcony, you could see 10-20 strays running around the property. Some appeared to be clean, others were rather mangy. They don't seem to bother the rooms, but it is a bit of an eyesore. The Sunbird has many qualities that make it a great place to stay. The location, amenities, and rooms all are real pluses. The Sunbird is also a great value. Rooms are reasonably priced and can run anywhere from $69 and up depending on view and time of year. Consider Sunbird a good decision when looking at places to stay in Panama City Beach.
