While this is a family-oriented hotel, we had a great experience for just the two of us. Great people all around from the front desk staff to the housekeepers to the guys driving the shuttle. Would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.

Our family of five went down for a quick visit to the beach for a gymnastics meet that our 8 yr old competed in on Oct 6th. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort right on the beach and I can't say enough about the FANTASTIC time we had at this hotel! Looking at the pics online with our children got everyone in the family pumped up about staying at this hotel, but when we actually got there and experienced it for ourselves--WOW! Very kid friendly and lots of entertainment/relaxation all in one. Everyone from the front desk, to the room service, the painters, the cleaning staff, security, and servers- I mean EVERYONE was very friendly and welcoming. I want to recognize one special fellow- Mr. Ronald Alvarado (server) - he really bent over backwards to do something special for my children: we got finished swimming at night and the kids wanted some hot chocolate, but we just missed the rest hrs- it had just closed as Mr Alvarado was closing the rest doors. He saw that we looked disappointed and said "may I help you?" and I said no, it's okay, I understand yall are now closed for the evening. Mr. Alvarado said, yes, but may I help you? What did you need? I said well, the kids wanted some hot choc.- he said "wait right here" then he went into the rest and came back with a little black box. He showed the kids the box- he opened up a tiny drawer in the box- showed it to the kids and said what do u see? the kids said nothing, it's empty. He asked my 3 yr old to blow into the box and make a wish for some chocolate. He did, and when Mr Alvarado reopened the box, there was a chocolate Hershey kiss in the box- one for each of my children! He also gave them each a chocolate milk and apologized for not being able to give them the hot chocolate that they wanted. Now, THAT'S customer service!!! Thank you Mr. Ronald Alvarado! You made our night! We will definitely be back to visit!

Our family of 6 loved this hotel. We visited on Fall Break 2013. Room was clean and efficient. Hotel provided, free of charge, many activities for children throughout the day. Loved the poolside music and Disney poolside movie every night. Breakfast buffet and poolside grill was great. 3 of my children, under the age of 12, ate for free the entire stay. Will definitely return!

Room Tip: room in the middle of building gives best unobstructed view. Hotel is built on a curve.

My husband and I went to Panama City beach for our 5 year anniversary and after doing much research found this hotel was the best choice to go with. We absolutely loved it. The staff was super friendly. And, everything was clean! The pool was awesome and the view from our balcony was wonderful. Everything was so romantic! And I was not disappointed. Definitely made an awesome choice going with this hotel! So glad we did. :)

This was a Fantastic getaway for a family of 5 which included our special needs son and my 84 year old grandmother. We never left the resort the whole time. No need to with entertainment throught the day and night. Very attentive staff and great service during dining times. We have been coming back for years and plan to enjoy in the years to come. Would recommend to anyone of any age. Extra shout out to Tom Price and Mark Mccraney for their extra attention they gave to our family as it made it even more special.. Thanks again!

Me and my family visited the resort this past weekend and we were greeted with nothing but smiles. The guest service rep was so friendly and he helped with anything we needed. We were able to check in quickly and tour the resort.The Holiday Inn Resort has to be under new management because the last time i visited, the workers were not as friendly. It was like everyone took their happy pill in the morning meeting. The establishment was very clean and the view and activities were awesome. Will i stay here again.... yes!!!

This is another quality property in the Holiday Inn chain of hotels and resorts. We had an excellent stay for our three days in the Panama City Beach area; we found the staff to be friendly and eager to help their guests. We had a room on the top floor and had a great balcony view overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The rooms were clean, comfortable and had wooden floors which, for me, makes it a whole lot cleaner as dirt is not easily trapped. There were lots of amenities on site for guests to make use with including a few bars, a restaurant, and a store to buy goodies plus pools and fitness facilities. The only criticism (albeit a small one) I would have is the prohibition of bringing your food and drink from the resort onto the beach which I do find a little puzzling. Guests should also be aware of a $ 22.50 resort fee/night is also added to your bill; fairly reasonable given the amenities offered plus two complimentary drinks at the bar, although I do suggest that the fee should be built into the nightly rate. All in all, I had a very pleasant experience and I would recommend the resort to anyone who wants to stay in the PCB area.

Room Tip: Pick a top floor if you want a quieter room, the lower floors tend to be exposed more to the loud mu...
