“A very pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Spent two nights here last week. A very nice hotel in a beautiful place. The staff was excellent, the room was comfortable and clean, the grounds were well kept and soothing. I didn't get a chance to play the golf course, but from the looks of it, I would have liked to. I would stay here again.

My husband and I have stayed here three times in the last three years (in winter) for family visits and will, with trepidation, go back in Feb. 2013. The setting keeps us coming: secluded, treed location right on the bay, nice waterfront path, herons in the lagoon and well-designed minimalist landscaping. It's the exact opposite of the Panama City Beach monoliths and cheap motels, and unique among the local lodging choices.
The public spaces are good enough--spacious lobby area, OK restaurant and comfy bar, pretty good breakfast even for the "included" buffet.
The rooms, though, are aging, small for a resort (one chair??) and sometimes just not working. We've never had a bathtub that drained well and twice the AC has been rattling and noisy. Beds and bedding were good to passable. Cleaning can be incomplete, in part because the bathrooms are so worn. The brass elevator trim is a messy fingerprint gallery. The many other complaints on this site ring true.
Also, the amenities shut down in winter, including the charming Lymes lunch grill on the long dock and the unheated outdoor pools/bar. The water shuttle to larger beaches closes for the season. There are no other good restaurants close by.
Yet, some of the rooms have serene, gorgeous views and staff tries to be responsive. The management promises that at least the bayfront rooms are being renovated. If that's done well, and the housekeeping improves, this place would get the 5 star ratings that its location deserves.

Room Tip: Bayview rooms are worth the price and have balconies/porches. Inspect your room before unpacking, in...

Went to visit my granddaughter for her birthday at the end of November. The only activity available was the indoor pool. The hot tube next to that was not working. There was only one restaurant and their were some medium priced meals for dinner and they had a complimentary breakfast that was just ok. We were placed in the main hotel in a room facing the entry but after asking for a change we were given a waterfont corner room. The room was clean but the carpet is worn and dirty. The door to the room looked like someone replaced the handle but didn't paint after the repair. Beds were comfortable and nice tv. There is no drawer space for clothes and the desk is sort of like a half desk. Disappointed that nothing much was going on, the gift shop was even closed. Also disappointed that Internet service was via hard wire, I had my tablet with me and there was no wifi to download games for my granddaughter. Don't think I would stay there again, too far away from Pier Park, no beach access that I could see and no activities especially in the off season. The staff was very friendly!!!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 5th floor and it was a corner room, nice view of the bay but close to elevator so y...

Only one restaurant open when we stayed,of course it was the most expensive! They placed us in a main hotel room above the lounge. After one of the many parties going on in the hotel heated up, everyone was smoking in the area below our room. This lead to billowing smoke up into our room! Probably why our non- smoking room carpet smelled of an old cigarette!
