This was our first stay at the Holiday Inn Resort in Pensacola Beach. We were very satisfied with the cleanliness of the property and the rooms.

Room was clean and staff was very friendly. Pool area was great. Gorgeous view of the gulf from room. Within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. This made for a great first visit to the panhandle. We only wished it were warmer so that we could swim; next time we'll come when it's warm enough to swim. And... More

I have great news for you. Our pool is currently having heaters installed so we will have a 100,000 lazy river pool very soon. So next time you come get ready for a heated pool even in the winter months. It really should be fantastic. Warm regards, Ron Wilson, CHA General Manager More

The hotel was very nice and accommodating with a family friendly environment. We ate at Riptides and were treated like royalty. The food was superior! Michael (the manager) and Allison (our waitress) went above and beyond to ensure we were completely satisfied. These two are definitely an asset to your establishment! Thank you!
