Absolutely loved this resort. Room was not ready at check in, but the hotel made a nice gesture in putting us in another room and giving my kids a huge blow up whale to play with in the ocean. We requested a lower floor to use the stairs if the elevators were slow. We never used the stairs as elevators were never an issue. If not going to the beach, use the east elevators to get to the lobby floor. This was a slow period for the town, but this resort seemed pretty full. Sky bar was nice, tiki bar guys were very friendly (no Iced tea). Front desk was very helpful each time we had a question. Both pools were very nice. Room had a queen in the private bedroom, set of bunks in the long hallway, and a pull out couch. Very nicely appointed. Beach towels under the bathroom sink for our use. Granite counter tops, nice refrigerator, garbage disposal, dishwasher, washer and dryer, flat panel in the living room, double slider balcony doors to allow wonderful ocean views and breeze. Great sunsets from any room. Beach access steps away from pool. We didn't use the beach chairs so do not know if they cost anything but have read $25/day. We had our own chairs and beach and ocean toys. We would set up in the mid morning at the beach, swim and play, head back to the room for lunch and check emails, then head back to our spot for the rest of the afternoon. our stuff remained untouched except for the one boy who decided to borrow our skim board while we watched him from the balcony eating chili dogs. He put it back when he was finished so no harm, just funny. Kitchen had basically everything needed, even paper towels and salt and pepper. No other condiments are available. No onsite store that I ever found but a small store is right next door selling the basics you might need. Just have to ignore the guys looking for some change. We only used the sky bridge one time as we found it easier to walk across the street to get to the parking deck. Sky bridge is not that big of a deal, most of the larger properties have these as well. We also learned to park on the side of the other pool and were in our car very fast. We also walked out the front of the hotel and around the corner to get to the beach since the vacant lot next door also allowed for that part of the beach to not be crowded. We would go back through the regular hotel doors as we used their outside showers to wash our feet. We had a great week. Resort is non-smoking even on the balconies and common areas, so don't stay here if you need to get your smoke on regularly. Things i didn't like were few. Movie night at the pool was a PG 13 movie titled 10,000 BC. My kids do not yet watch those types of movies and I felt like they should have had a more family freindly offering since the property is full of families. The resort needs a few electircal oulets to plug in laptops in the pool area for those of us who still work while on "vacation". Need Iced Tea for sale in the pool for those that don't drink. Need a "redbox" in the lobby for DVD movie rentals instead of having to drive to Walmart. Need a sign at the gulf side pool telling people to not "place" towels and leave their lounge chairs unoccupoied. i watched people come in the morning, stake out their chairs then go to the beach for a few hours, then come back to the pool. This is not fair for the people that are actually wanting a lounge chair to enjoy. Maybe adding a few would be a good idea. Overall, we had a great experience. My kids absolutely loved staying there and being so close to the beach. We didn't have to get in the car unless we ran out of something. I took them to pier pak to eat dinner the last night since they ate in the room for every meal the entire time we were in Panama City. We will return again.
