“Wouldn't stay anywhere else!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

We have been going to the Sunspree Resort for over twenty years now. We started going before we had children and continued after children because of their awesome atmosphere and wonderful children's activities. This hotel has never been anything but top notch from the friendly and helpful staff to the actual accommodations. From their gorgeous tropical setting to their great dining you couldn't ask for more. Every year they are constantly changing and updating this already perfect Resort! For example, one year they added a kiddy waterpark and the spectacular Seawatch addition for entertainment overlooking the ocean. This past year they updated their pool and added these awesome cabanas around the pool decks. Security in this Resort is second to none. The staff is unbelievable and treat you like your royalty each and every time you are there. The people behind the scenes that have made our stay so wonderful are: Cody Khan, Nelson Matos, Dave Tyring, Tom Price, Jim Lawson, Andy Urban, Connie Miller, Steven the lifeguard and many more wonderful staff members. Can't wait to go back!!!!!!!

Room Tip: They are all great rooms!

Thank you for choosing the Holiday Inn Resort year after year! It’s great to hear that you’ve been a part of our resort family for 20 years now; we appreciate you taking the time to share about us on TripAdvisor! We’re so glad that we have gotten to be a part of your memories as your children have grown over the years! It’s great to hear that a big part of what keeps you coming back - aside from the beautiful beaches – is the service that our talented and friendly Resort Team Members and Managers provide. We have worked hard over the years to keep our resort a fresh experience for our very important guests who keep coming back to see us, that’s why we’ve added great additions like the SeaWatch and Aqualand – and we have some tricks up our sleeve for more enhancements in 2014 with new features in Aqualand and some other great changes in store for the resort! We hope to have you and your family as our guests again soon; thank you for your loyalty to the Holiday Inn Resort!
Sunny Regards,

After many trips to Panama City Beach, this is the first time I have ever stayed at this hotel. I usually stay in a condo. With this trip being a pass through to my planned destination, I did not want to spend the ridiculous prices for cleaning and resort fees at other locations.

I found the room to be just the average hotel room with a small entry into the room itself. Once you get past the refrigerator, the room opens into a standard size hotel room. Since this was the off season after the summer crowds, there was some minor cosmetic work that was needed in the room.

With that being said, you cannot beat the ease and friendliness of the staff upon an early evening check in. The desk clerk and parking shuttler were extremely friendly and helpful. As were the ones who assisted with check out the following day.

The beds were fairly comfortable with both hard and soft pillows for you to choose from.

Of course the location was excellent. I left the balcony door open just to sleep to the soothing sound of the ocean all night long.

I did not get to explore to much of this resort; however, the pools looked like a good size with lots of palm trees around.

Overall, for one night it was worth the stay. I am not sure if I would go back during the busy season. But that would be a personal preference.

We’re so glad you came to stay with us during your visit to Panama City Beach this time around; thank you for sharing your experience on TripAdvisor! It’s great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and found the room and resort to be comfortable and welcoming. We hope that you’ll visit us again to explore more of the resort, the pools, day spa, and SunSet Lounge can all be relaxing and quiet during the late spring, fall, and winter seasons as the younger kids are all in school during those times. Thank you for choosing the Holiday Inn Resort, we hope to have you as our guests again soon!

It has been a long time since I have encountered customer service of an excellent rating. The management and staff go out of their way to make sure their guests are happy. If there is a problem, they resolve it immediately and go above and beyond what one would expect. I will most definitely visit again! Thanks to David, Clint, Mike, Haley, Elvin, Micah, Pauly, Sandy and many others for making our Honeymoon stay the best ever!

You may find this hard to believe, but we have found the best hotel in America. This is the first time that I have ever done a review like this in my life. But if ever down in Florida, around the Panhandle, you will not find a better place to stay than this place right here. Everything from the staff, to the amenities, to the food, to the great personalities that are running this hotel it has truly been the best experience that we have ever had at any hotel around the world!!! I travel quite a lot and live in England, but will always look forward to coming back to this hotel for a long long time!!! A special thank you to Nelson Matos (Operations Manager) who went out of his way to accommodate us in every way. And a special thank you to Kim Ward. Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!

I enjoyed another stay at this location,although only a 3 night stay this go around.
The staff were all great and the free drink coupons still flow freely.
I will add that the 7th floor is where the smoking rooms are located,so if your a smoker and want a higher floor just get a non smoking room/request a higher floor and use the balcony for your deeds. ;-)

Room Tip: 7th floor is where the smoking rooms are located. If you want a higher floor request a non smoking...

We have been coming to this resort for the last 7 years for our Christmas party and we stay for 4 days each time. The service is wonderful and the great rooms all face the beach. The management is first class and the food is good. Ronald did an excellent job as our evening server and Kim was wonderful as our server for breakfast. I would recommend this resort anytime you are in Panama City Beach, FL and the pools and kiddie area are a must see. The property is beautifully maintained and is first class at all levels!

Room Tip: All rooms face the beach and all have great views but the higher up, the better the view.

This hotel demonstrated a true Customer-focused service orientation. Two examples-Ronald Alvarado and Tom Price both went out of their way to take us places, set up rooms and roll out the red carpet. EVERYBODY there does everything to resolve a question, take care of a need, whatever.

This is a great place if you are looking for a beautiful location and even better service. Well-done!
