I am a busy single professional male who had just spent the last 3 months taking care of my amazing six-year old son who I share custody with his mom. I was desperate to get out of landlocked Atlanta for a brief respite but I didn't want to fly because I travel extensively by plane for a living. I did a quick google search and came across this hotel as a 4-5 hour drive from Atlanta with the incentive of beautiful beaches.
I travel extensively across the country for work and was using reward points for this trip so I didn't have super high expectations. I am used to reading positive reviews on various websites and then being severely disappointed upon arriving at the hotel.
However, this hotel was different. First, the drive from Atlanta took me about 5 hours but a couple of hours take you through some quiet southern towns that help the time fly by even though it's not a short trip. And my XM/Sirius Satellite Radio helped. :-)
Check in at the hotel was fast. The hotel is located across the street from several restaurants ranging from Subway to nice Seafood and Italian food spots. My room was fine. It had a queen bed and then 2 bunkbeds - so clearly this is a family friendly hotel. Every room has a balcony overlooking the water and the pool. Room service was fast and the hotel food was decent.
Most importantly, the beach is seconds away (walking) and the pool never got too crowded. I was able to relax even with all the kids and I wasn't ready to leave. Morning walks on the beach - amazing. People watching - all day. Night time walks on the beach - yes, Great hotel. Great location. I will be back with my son next summer but I might come during a slow time to enjoy.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Joey Bagadonuts No privacy for parents in room that sleeps 6
Room that sleeps 6 gives parents zero privacy. As the top bunks yield a view over the queen bed parents are sleeping in. This design flaw didn't enhance our stay. Also you cannot bring hotel towels to the beach.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FlyNurse46 relaxing atmosphere, beautiful view, and stay was comfortable
My Family and I enjoyed the weekend stay Aug 22-24, 2014 in Panama City Beach. We found a lot of entertainment at the resort and on the stretch of Front Beach Rd. My husband and I enjoyed Karaoke on Saturday night. The breakfast buffet was delicious. On the day of departure, my granddaughter left her Ipod in the room and we had driven 30 miles away from the resort before we realized the Ipod was missing. We quickly notified front desk and the Ipod had been found and was reassured that it would be shipped to my home. I especially want to thank T. P. in security for his assistance by phone and reassuring me that the Ipod was in a secure spot and that it would be shipped out and I would receive within a week. I received the Ipod and all is well with it. I would recommend this resort and stay again. Thank you.

Me and my family loved this hotel. It was clean and beautiful. The grounds were well kept and the rooms were clean. Loved the pool area and there was lots for children to do. The beach was also clean and beautiful. Highly recommend and if we return to Panama City Beach this is where we would stay!

This hotel is our home away from home. This is the only place we would stay in panama city. I dont want a condo because this hotel offers way more and they treat you like family. We started staying here as a couple w no kids and had a really fun,adult time. Now w lil ones its also the perfect place for families. The food here on site is amazing! You really feel like you are in paradise here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debbie2210 Excellant service and fantastic Resort
My husband and I was at the resort for 5 days. We made reservations for 4 days and had such a wonderful time we stayed and extra night. Sebastian was so helpful at check in. At first we were on the 4th floor and when we went to the room we couldn't see the Gulf. He changed our room without any problems to the 7th. floor. The bed was just right, housekeeping was helpful and extremely friendly. Went down to the pool and it was spotless and there was someone at all times checking to see it stayed that way. The nightly entertainment was very nice and movies for the kids on the deck was fun to watch. The food in the restaurant and at the outside places to eat was delicious. We were told by our friends that we could park our car and not go back to it as long as we were there. It was hard to believe but very true. Everything you need is at this Resort. We have done a lot of traveling in Florida since we retired and this will be the place we will be going to from now on.

The beach is just a few short steps from the hotel and the pool and activities were great. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating. We will definitely be staying at this location again.
