We just spent the last 6 days at the hotel and had a great time. The service was top notch in every way. Dorian and her pals at the front desk were always upbeat and helpful with places to go and restaurants to try. We chose a balcony view which overlooked the pool and the beach. There were 4 of...

We, along with 13 other couples, recently visited this location and received excellent service! The entire staff went above and beyond in meeting our needs. When hosting a function this staff, Holly and Christina, in conjunction with Liv and the Hilton, provided commendable hospitality and customer service. I can't thank these ladies enough for their efforts!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort this past weekend as a last taste of summer before heading back to school. I think because school has started or is starting it wasn't as busy as it looked a couple of weeks ago when we stayed at another local hotel which was great for us. Our kids 7 & 9 LOVED... More

Thank you for your detailed review of our resort. I wanted to respond to the wait times you described about Riptides food service first. I don’t feel we do a good job explaining to our guests that we serve the entire resort from Riptides, all of the pool deck area, Tiki Bar and as you mentioned room service for 206... More

Dorian at the front desk was professional and courteous, and very helpful with all our questions. Others on staff were also hospitable, checking if we needed anything. We enjoyed the beach and the lazy river/pool. Peg leg Pete's and the Native Cafe turned out to be good choices for dinner and breakfast. My only reservation about the hotel was less-than-perfect...

This a great family hotel. Traveled from Ft. Beach to Pensacola for a short 2 day vacation with my wife and 11 month old daughter. The room was spacious and clean. I was a little surprised there were no mattress or box spring encasements to protect against bed bugs, dust mites and bodily fluids Everyone was so friendly. The pool... More

The hotel is amazing and we enjoyed our stay. The lobby is very nice and kept clean at all times (even with folks coming in from the pool or beach). There are daily activities for the kids (of all ages) such as coloring contests, face painting, hula hoop contests, pirate party, swim with the mermaids, etc. The hotel is right... More
