We've stayed at High Pointe for many years. We keep coming back because the view is fabulous -- blindingly white sand beaches with an ocean in varying shades of blue and green. We stay in an ocean-front condo and love to sit on the balcony in the evenings and watch the sun set andthe folks congregating on the beach for pictures.
Our condo was tastefully decorated and nicely appointed. We found nearly everything we needed in the kitchen, which is saying a lot with a daughter who was inspired by her father, a wonderful cook, to become a pastry chef. The furnishings are nice enough that I would be happy having them in my own home. The condo was very comfortable and met all our needs.
The location is wonderful. The Panama City Beach Airport is only 30 minutes away. Seaside (where the movie The Truman Show was filmed) is about 20 minutes away. For more great shopping and restaurants, there is Pier Park in Panama City Beach (15 minutes away) as well as the Silver Sands Outlet Mall and the Destin Commons Mall in Destin (40 minutes away).
In addition to the beach, the kids will have plenty to do. The pool is one of the most beautiful I've seen -- lots of live green foliage and waterfalls on islands in the middle. There is also a children'splayground and two tennis courts. My only complaint is that the courts were locked at night before closing time, and we had to track down a security guard every night to unlock them.
High Pointe is looking a little tired, but one of the buildings was being refurbished while we were there, so it may be a little fresher next year. I would book it again anyway.
