“Great for families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

The room was great. The only thing that made me pause was the tub, but I quickly realized that it was clean, just worn from all the sand that it sees. This hotel had everything. All rooms face the ocean. The pool was huge, and had a little waterfall. There is also a smaller pool, and a playground with water features and slides for younger guests. The staff was friendly, and very helpful. It did drive me a little crazy to put the WIFI code in every time I opened my phone, but the signal was nice and strong. Because we booked three nights, we had complimentary cocktails for two of those nights. There is a little tiki bar on the way to the beach. This area was smoking, and it is kind of smelly for a few steps while you walk past. The beach was clean, and full of little crabs for the kids to look at. We also had rays swim within a couple of feet of us two times. The last day we were there, there were jelly fish in the water, and went to the pool instead. There is something to do every night. The hotel plays a movie by the pool nightly. We also saw a fire dancing and hula show and a magic show. Great for kids. There is water and tea available all over the hotel all day long.

What a great place to stay. Right in the heart of the beach, with the most beautiful views. Front desk staff, Alli, was wonderful. Only issue I had was that it cost $40 to rent a chair/umbrella on the beach (really?) and that my room was not cleaned great. Other than that, the hotel was great. Ethan, was nice enough to comp a seafood buffet one night, and Alli was just helpful anytime I had a question. The resort does have plent to offer, lots of activities, and free watermelon slices and punch poolside at 3PM daily. I would definitely stay here again because it is a gorgeous place, with an awesome staff, just bring your own beach chair and save $40.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room on the 12th floor. You're far enough away from the noise of the pool, but...

We went hear for a week Sept 7 thru 13th 2013. We could not have asked for any nicer place to stay and relax. EVERYONE from the Front desk to the Security and the fellows that drove the people mover carts went out of their way to show how much they appreciated our business. The bartenders and Maid were exceptional. It was just an alaround GREAT stay.

Room Tip: We were on 8th floor, it looked like a view on a post card. All rooms face the pool & Ocean with...

Thank you for celebrating with us and for sharing your experience with us on TripAdvisor! It’s great to hear that our Resort Team Members, from the Cart Drivers to the Front Desk to our friendly Security Team Members, provided you with the superior service that we strive for at our resort. October is one of the best months to visit the beach as the water is typically completely clear with vibrant blues and greens making it absolutely picture perfect. We hope to have you as our guests again soon; thank you for choosing the Holiday Inn Resort.

This resort was very upscale, clean, and friendly! We were privileged enough to stay at this wonderful hotel for 3 days and my family had a blast! We experienced everything from the clean pools, fun waterpark, and of course the fun karaoke! The staff was super friendly and made it a fun time for my three kids. The kids played their little hearts out from sun up on the beach until the sun down with the game room and dive in movies! My husband and I enjoyed a great night out just to ourselves (thanks to the parents night out program) and also had a relaxing time taking turns getting a wonderful massage. The massage alone was worth the whole trip for this mom of three! We ate breakfast at the resort restaurant and it was very wonderful and stayed fully stocked all three mornings we stayed there. My family stayed in late August so it was just perfect for us with not being to crowded but the kids still had other kids to play with in the pools. This resort was the most expensive one my family has stayed at but it was well worth the money.

Room Tip: All rooms are ocean front but the kids suite is what we had for my family of 5 and it was great! T...

I've been coming to this place for close to 25 years. I always come down for me and my wife's anniversary. I would never stay anywhere else. Nelson Matos is the best and always treats us so well and they have the best dj Jim Lawson.

Took my mother to PCB, FL in September and had the good fortune to stay at the Holiday Inn Resort. The excellent experience started immediately upon arrival when a professional and friendly receptionist named Amaris check us in. When I mentioned my mom being 82 Amaris immediately made several unsolicited suggestions concerning parking, availability of beach wheelchair, etc. In all my years of travel I've never stayed anywhere with a friendlier staff. Everyone from reception to maintenance smiled and spoke whenever they were near you. Room was well stocked and very clean. Nice watermelon reception in the afternoons. Hotel was conveniently located within walking distance of restaurants. I will recommend the PCB Holiday Inn Resort to all my family and friends.
