“Very nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

My husband and I brought our daughter and 3 of her friends here for her birthday. It was cold but we enjoyed the new heated pool. We were lucky enough to be on the 7th floor so we were able to see dolphins swimming near the shore in the mornings. The staff is very friendly as well as some of the long term residents. The rooms were nice and clean. We will definitely keep this place in mind when we visit again. The hotel is far enough away from everything to be quiet but close enough for a quick drive to where ever you want to go.

Nice beach view from the room itself. Rooms were clean with cooking necessary utensils(Gas stove, non stick vessels etc). Especially for people who prefer home food can be cooked, Publix is just near by.
The pool deck was clean and great heated water.

Room Tip: Choose the room at first floor middle for a great view!

This is the nicest hotel I've stayed at in PCB. Staff is friendly & helpful, rooms are big and clean, the view is beautiful, and it's private & quiet. Loved our stay and it will be our new go to place to stay at when traveling to PCB. Will recommend to my family and friends who also frequent PCB.

This property has a tremendous beach just steps from the room. Nice rooms on the quiet end of Panama City Beach. Great heated pool. The pool deck was recently renovated. Enjoyed sitting on the pool deck watching sunset over the water.

Thank you so much for the kind remarks about your recent visit. I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at our resort. I work there, I'm there most days and that view of the beach never, ever gets old. And thank you for noticing the changes to our pool deck area. We've got some additional changes coming to the hot tub and our bar deck area as well. I hope you come back and get to enjoy those as well. Again, thank you and we hope to welcome you back very soon.

Bathroom sink was right inside door. Full size refrigerator, sink and microwave but only 1 chair and table to use for eating. Beds were comfortable enough but inconsistent heat. Lovely view of ocean and beachfront.

Stayed here for New Year 2015 decent facility in an excellent location. Staff were efficient and helpful. Loved the location and the overall experience. Facility and rooms have taken some beating. Very large fridge in room was an inconvenience for us as it was noisy.

We enjoyed 4 nights at the hotel. It is a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but plenty close to enjoy whatever we wanted. We were a bit disappointed to find the pool and hot tub would be under repair while we were there, so unusable. We weren't given this information until we had already paid for one night. As it turned out, we had plenty to do and the pool and hot tub weren't really missed. The beach is beautiful and we enjoyed it every day.

The staff at this hotel is amazing. Kyle at the front desk was helpful and funny. We looked forward to seeing him. Mary in housekeeping was also extremely helpful and nice. We didn't run into a single staff member who didn't have a smile and a friendly word.

Our room had a kitchenette stocked with pans, dishes, and utensils. We used it a couple of times. A small table with a couple of chairs would be a good addition to the room. I believe that the hotel is being renovated. The carpet in our room was a bit dated and felt damp due to the humidity of being on the ocean. All tile, as hotels in Jamaica or the Dominican have, would be a good idea.

We would definitely go back to this hotel, and are considering a longer stay as they have excellent off-season monthly rates.

Room Tip: I don't believe there are any bad rooms. All rooms have an ocean view.

Thank you for taking the time to post your thoughts about your recent visit. I glad that you enjoyed your visit. I'm sorry that you weren't told about the pool closure. I've spoken with the staff member that helped you book your visit, insuring that they understand the importance of sharing this type of information. Thank you for the comments about Kyle and Mary. Kyle is new to our team, but as you have seen, is a wonderful addition. And with Mary, well, she's just wonderful. I'll make sure to share your remarks with both of them. Again, thank you and we're looking forward to seeing you again very soon.
