Soundside Holiday Beach Resort
Reviewed March 2, 2014

This resort though small is the perfect place for relaxation. It was very clean and well appointed and it is apparent that the resort is very well taken care of. The only negative that my husband had was the age of the small tv's in the bedrooms. A small flat screen would be nice. I don't go on vacation to watch tv so I honestly didn't care whether there was a tv or not. The resort has all new furniture and carpet. If you drive to the west end of the island the beach there is pristine. We took several walks in the morning there and it was beautiful. There are not many activities at the resort so you may want to go elsewhere if that is a requirement for you. They do have a free breakfast, an ice cream social and a luncheon. We will stay here again as we became owners on this visit.

We stayed here in October for the week, 3 adults, 2 kids (11 & 13), had a great time! Beach is right across street, easy access to that! Pool and hot tub on property are very nice. Only drawback for us was little quick fast food places. We only found the subway next door in the little strip mall.

Very well maintained time share. Within walking distance to lots of eating places. Brenda, manager, gives a nice free breakfast every Tuesday. Make sure to go. They also have a ice cream social at 1pm on Wednesday. We went and made it our lunch. Only problem we had was very poor internet service. Most of the time it wasn't working or way to slow. Housekeeping could do a little better. Found a couple of hairs in the shower and the door in the bathroom had dried stuff on it that came off very easy with a wet rag.

Lovely locution right on the sound, excellently maintained by staff, grounds and units. Get a top floor unit if possible to enjoy views of the water. Lovely spot for walking g to beach or attractions and restaurants, ideal ins off season when nice and quiet. Greet staff friendly nothing too much trouble, units spacious and well equipped, we didn't want to leave!

On,y fly in the ointment was the nightly loud music CFO bar next door, they don't need to have it so loud that you can't hear your tv in the co do! Only this spoiled our stay, otherwise oerfect and one of the best RCI exchanges we have ever had.

Room Tip: Ask for top floor unit to get best views

My wife and I booked a Saturday to Saturday stay at Holiday Beach Soundside. We had to come in late on Monday and checked out on Saturday. We then stayed two more nights at a hotel we booked through an internet website. The contrast between the properties was incredible. I have been spoiled by staying in timeshare properties and Holiday Beach is a nice one - the units are spacious, well maintained, with nice views, convenient access to local attractions, good parking, clean new kitchens. The internet hotel we stayed at was anything but...

My only complaint is that the wireless internet, while available, is very, very weak. To get a signal at all we had to sit out on the screened in porch with our laptop. I imagine that in mid-summer this would be very uncomfortable. We do a lot of our trip planning on the fly via the internet, so having to sit outside for a great deal of the time was bothersome. If they would correct this one minor niggle, I would rate Holiday Beach as excellent.

We arrived at our first location for vacation and had booked at Soundside, Pensacola Beach. Everything here was perfect. Our room as clean and well kept. The view was gorgous. The pool temps were warm, despite the poor temps and cooler nights. I can not say enough good things about this place. Ample parking- and perfectly located on the strip. This place is in the heart of many fun places for entertainment and great food.

Room Tip: Great pricing, call the Pensacola location direct for better rates.

My wife and I exchanged into this resort on a 1/2 price point special. We couldn't have picked a better place. The unit was spacious and clean, although I did find someone's asthma inhaler behind one of the nightstands in the bedroom. Units are close to tourist shopping, dining and the huge ferris wheel. They should fix little things like the flimsy paper towel holder.

If you are there on a Tuesday, you absolutely must go to Brenda's Big Breakfast in the office. Some of the best breakfast food (eggs, biscuits/gravy, cheese grits) we've ever had.
