“Great resort for the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Me and my wife spent a week at your resort and could have had a better time. Your staff is wonderful and very courteous. The rooms were awesome I would recommend your resort to anyone This was our 25 year wedding anniversary present and it was great . My hat is off to Nelson Matos, Andy Urban and Tom Price they are some great people. So again thank you for such a wonderful time we look forward to coming back next year

The staff members are SSSSSOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! nice. They will be your kids best friend. It woudnt be the same vacation without Holiday Inn Resort.

Room Tip: Get a high floor to enjoy the beach view.

My wife and I have been going to the Gulf sence before we were married. We enjoy coming to Panama City Beach and absolutely love the Holiday Inn Resort. The resort is perfectly situated on the white sands of the Gulf, every room is ocean front, and the amenities are second to none. Year after year, staff mbers, like Nelson Matos, make us feel welcome. The staff listens to the guest suggestion. The resort is constantly and consistently making improvements to the grounds and all they offer. Just this year my wife was pleased to hear of the new Day Spa they opened on the property; as was I, time for me to get a round of golf in.

My husband and I love staying at the Holiday Inn Resort and this year is no different. The beginning of every trip is filled with excitement as we know that every detail of our stay has been thought out by the staff. From the moment we arrive and all through our stay we are never disappointed. We see many of the same friendly faces year after year. The workout room is actually filled with useful equipment that works; this is a priority for me. We love the music provided at the pool deck as well as all the kids activities that keeps things so much fun. It's the little details that show how much the HIR values its residents. For example, the new lockers on the way to the beach, cabanas on the sun deck, watermelon in the heat of the afternoon. There is entertainment every night, including a dive in movie that is always so much fun. You really don't have to leave the hotel! Entertainment, food, spa...it is everything you expect on a vacation!! Even Nelson, the assistant GM, does not have too much to do to stop and talk with the guest and make sure everything is as pleasant as possible. This is what keeps us coming back at least once a year, every year.

This is the best place we have ever visited. We have been to several places the last 13 years along the coast and this is by far the most accommodating resort for families and Kids. The activities they have for kids are fantastic. They are always doing something to get your kids involved. My 10 and 5 year old have never been so entertained. Pool and hot tub are huge. Easy walk to beach. Great game room. Splash kids club was great. Food was great at every location on the property. Kim and Ethan at the front desk were the most pleasant workers I have come in contact with on a vacation. We will go back next summer. AMAZING!

Where should I start, lol. 1st time here was mother day weekend, we had a blast. The staff was very helpful & courteous. We enjoyed the resort so much, we came back again a month later with the kids. While the kids were enjoying Aqualand, we enjoyed relaxing under the gazebos. The saltwater pool is the best, they even play music under water, my son enjoyed that. When coming from the beach, we enjoyed not having to stand in a long line for the shower because they had it setup with multiple showers to either rinse your body or feet(that truly made a huge difference). The entire staff was great!!!! Andy Urban and Nelson Matos were genuine when we met them. They had an actual conversation with us and did not just come shake hands and leave. That says a lot about them. Heather in the kids corner was also super awesome. One of my children have a severe food allergy. Heather not only made sure that she ate the right food but her and the other staff there were so attentive to the children that i felt extremely comfortable with leaving my children with them. Mike, the pool attendant was super sweet. Security also walked the grounds but were not over bearing. To some our experience up, i will say to the managers and staff at the Holiday Inn Resort is SUPER DUPER AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!
