The room was nice and clean. There was a full size fridge and microwave in the room. The negative of the room to me was the thin walls. I normally sleep with ac and fan full blast, white noise. The room had a loud ac, perfect for me but every 10 minutes it would turn off and stay off for a minute so that constantly woke me up. The pool area was awesome, my three year old loved the kids water park, pool was great and beach access. They had plenty of showers before getting back on property and shelves for shoes when you go on the beach. Workers were friendly. They had plenty of free water stations. Parking is across the street with access through under steer tunnel. There were golf cart drivers ready to give rides to car. Great time.

This hotel greatly outsurpassed our expectations. We fell in love with Panama City after staying with our granddaughter at another great hotel, but this time we just went for us and decided to check out a hotel on the beach. There is probably not a bad room in the whole hotel for they all have balconies looking out onto the Gulf. The pool was crystal clear, clean, and easy to manuever about. Two hot tubs are around the pool as well as a very large water "play" area for small children. From pool to beach was only a short distance.
Security and safety seems to be of the utmost importance which made you felt comfortable by yourself or making new friends. When we arrived, we were told that maintenance had turned off the power from noon until 4 PM, so lights, frig, AC would not be working in the room. Unbelievably at 4 PM on the dot, everything was back up and we were fine. There is a small convenience type store on the premises so you might want to get some snacks for later. AND, you cannot miss the sunset from the 3rd floor bar patio. It was beautiful. Morning found us sitting on the balcony watching small dophins or tiny sharks' fins in the surf. We never did find out what they were, but it did not stop any of the beach activity. They were gone with the heat of the day. We are senior citizens and I could not find ONE thing that made me actually feel that way.
Parking is scarce, but they have parking across the street and it is free. They actually have little golf carts to take you to and from your vehicle should you need to do so. The staff was pleasant and cheerful, not a bit intrusive. And I must send out cudos to Jeremiah, the bartender; very personable and laid back. No doubt we will be back and have already told another couple about it. Though we were just an older couple, the reactions of all ages around us during our stay was nothing but funloving and happy. By the way, the beds were wonderful and we had a hard time getting out of them. Rooms very clean and hallways void of trash or sand.
If I had one complaint, it would be that there are no snack machines, just drinks and ice. Oh, and it would be nice to have more hot coffee in the morning. that's all; just little stuff.

Room Tip: We asked (as I always do) for an upgrade. The desk person did not acknowledge me and it didn't...

our family stayed at this hotel for the first time in June. the hotel staff were very friendly and our room was clean with a great view of the ocean. Beach was very clean. there were alot of fun activities for our children ages 8 and 11. DJ Jim made each day fun for the kids at poolside, with games and dancing. great value at the poolside grill for families, food was good. pool side movies at night was awesome. nice kiddie pool area for the little ones. security was always visible, and the manager, Nelson Matos, was always available to make sure our service was superior. would recommend this hotel to any family. we will return again. dolphine cruise was great and definately go the the state park.

Room Tip: choose a room 5th floor or higher for beautiful ocean views and you will avoid pool noise

We were really concerned if this place would really be "kid Friendly" and wow it really was. I cannot say how many times we have recommeded this place. It was fantastic, kids events were planned each day at no extra cost. My kids ages 4 and 6 had a blast each day they begged to go to craft time. We would get up and go to the beach and when they were tired of that we would go to one of the childrens events, then to the pool lunch on the patio and then back to the beach. we were actually able to practically spend our entire vacation within the hotel and everyone was happy about it. We are already planning next years vacation and this is where we are going. The staff was amazing the kids wanted to say goodbye to everyone and my kids even remembered their names after we were home.

Room Tip: all rooms are oceanfront

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.
