“Life's A Beach!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

Had a wonderful time at this resort hotel! The room was immaculate and the view from every room is spectacular! This hotel prides itself on friendliness, cleanliness, and safety. It hits the mark spot on in every category. Looking forward to another opportuniity to stay in this full service hotel. They really know how to treat their guests!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the newer mattresses.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We had stayed there before and had experienced great service, that is what prompted us to go there again. This was our first real vacation in a few years and it was our anniversary. The rooms were clean and exactly as they had promised. There was a full size refridgorator in the room along with a microwave. The pool and grounds were clean and personnel worked around the clock keeping everything to obvious high standards. It was just the two of us, but they showed movies by the pool every night for the kids, which we were able to view from our balcony which was fun. The personnel are very polite and attentive to your needs. We will definately go back next year.

Room Tip: They are all good rooms, but the higher rooms, say 7th floor and up have a better view of the beach.

The beach front is very nice. If all you want is a clean bed near the beach, this will work. The hotel has really seen a better day and is not very attractive. Make sure you get a high room as the pool noise can last late into the evening. Ask for a room on the end as well, otherwise you will hear people walking by your door. My biggest complaint would be the noise from the window a/c unit. It sounded like a jet was in the room.

I had not been to the beach in over ten years, my 12 year old has never been. We have stayed here before and knew it was nice. Since my last stay here they have really added more things to do. The entire staff was extra friendly - I mean every one. We were given golf cart rides to our car, just treated everybody like they were really special. My little girl really enjoyed this trip to the beach and she loved the hotel as well as I did. Thanks to everyone at The Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort P.C.B.

Room Tip: Any room you choose would be perfect and a great view

This is by far my favorite vacation spot ever! I have been coming here since I was 13 years old, and the resort just keeps getting better and better. The rooms are always clean and tidy, the staff is friendly and you get a balcony with a gorgeous view of the beach and pool area. The atmosphere and staff at this resort makes it a fun place to stay. This hotel is also in a great location because there are numerous places to eat right across the street and there is shopping VERY close by. I ALWAYS recommend this hotel to anybody looking for a place to stay in Panama City.

This hotel is an excellent choice for a family vacation as there are plenty of on-site activities for the young and young at heart. Check-in supposedly starts at 4 p.m. but many try arriving earlier. Success is dependent on whether departing guest rooms are cleaned and ready in time.

We arrived nearly at 4 p.m. to find all check-in lanes occupied - three cars deep. Unlike many hotels this one requires you to check-in, remove your luggage from the car, and then park your car via an underground tunnel in a parking lot across the road. The check-in process was easy and our luggage safely stowed in our room but then a small wait for the two cars in front of us to move before we could park our car.

The room was spartanly furnished with a table with two chairs, a bureau, a hutch containing the microwave oven, and a full sized refrigerator which, according to the hotel information, contained an ice maker - ours was missing parts. Each room has a beach-side balcony with two plastic chairs and a side table.

The flooring was made of bamboo which I'm sure is easy to maintain and a small area rug around the beds. The flooring appeared to have been hastily laid as it remained unfinished along the walls - maybe to ease its periodic replacement.

After a day's activities the beds were comfortable to ensure a restful night. However, beware of the nighttime activities poolside. The Dive-in movies and Polynesian shows may keep lower floor residents up longer than they want to.

Maid service was slow but dependable. Our room was freshened each day between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. One quirk I found was that the bath soap and shampoo amenities were never replaced.

Room security may be an issue with some. Each room uses an RFID passkey to gain entry but the deadbolt locks on both the entry door and the door to the balcony were pretty beat up. Our room also had an in-room touch-pad keyed safe that wouldn't lock.

The in-hotel restaurant, "The View", afforded a poolside vista and offered reasonable fare at inflated prices. After two meals there we sought out restaurants away from the resort or used the in-room microwave oven.

The best part of stay was the resort staff. They were helpful when you needed it, reminding you of the day's activities in unobtrusive ways, and constantly cleaning a maintaining the common areas.

Apart from the locale I expected better of a stay at this resort.

Room Tip: Go for a high floor, beware of the poolside noises if you get too low.

Coming to PCB in October extends my summer. The Holiday Inn is where i always stay and
have been going here almost 23 of the past 25 years. The Holiday Inn has great security, located within walking distance of other resturants, as well as it's own resturant. The pool is
beautiful, the decks are beautiful, the rooms are nicely decorated. Then you step from the
deck to the white sand and see the beautiful gulf and seaguls and i'm in heaven. The resort
is located within five minutes of anything you desire. However the fitness center falls short of
my needs.

Room Tip: Rooms in the middle of the resort are close to the elevators. Wonder views of the Deck, pools, and...
