This place has it all. It may not be the most modern of places in Panama City Beach, but it has everything you need. The staff is very nice and attentive. There was always something to do such as jet skiing, sailing, swimming, watching an outside movie, lazy river and the list goes on. Overall a great place to take... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2016

We have stayed here over a dozen times. We absolutely love it. They have many pool options and fun crafts/events for kids. Karaoke and Bingo. Polynesian fire shows and occasionally a bubble pit. Right on the beautiful emerald beaches of Panama City. Always tons of fun. We will be back again soon. Thanks for all the fun memories!!! More

The rooms were nice, the place was clean, and it had plenty of amenities on the property to accommodate everyone. There is a restaurant right across the street that is open for breakfast as well. I only had the pizza there, and it was pretty good. We stay here every year. It's not the place for a romantic getaway, but... More

Great quick getaway for a couples only weekend. Love the people, tiki bar, and the beach. We have stayed several times with kids and without. They make a point of including kids in as much as possible. The family movies, water slide and activities in the tiki bar. Smores was one of my grandsons favorite.

So this was a family vacation consisting of my parents, my two sisters with one child each, and myself with my husband and son. The room was described to my mom as on the corner of the building with a private wrap around balcony. It was a corner but it was an inside corner where we had people directly across... More

rooms are not as nice as I expected for the price paid but beach access was awesome and lots of activities for kids and adults. It is a nice place for for families and easy access to beach but rooms need remodeling.

Our stay was PERFECT! Room was GREAT! We are already planning on coming back next year!! Our daughter had a blast in all the pools and the ocean. The Tiki Bar was fun too!! Really enjoyed the Polynesian show. Was very impressed how quiet everything became after 10 PM. That was a HUGE plus!! Cannot wait to come back again!!!!

We have stayed here many times over the last 10 years. When we were unhappy with our room the staff was more than accommodating to change it for us. It's family friendly and the staff is awesome! We plan on returning!
