Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharon Lynn Beautiful Setting, nice beach & pool. Food is great!
The restaurant was phenomenal, the beds comfortable but hotel is rather pricey because you are on the beach. The only problem I had was the fire alarm went off and everyone had to evacuate. I'm elderly and had to walk down 7 flights and just as I got to the bottom, they announced it was over & we could go back to our rooms. This occurred around 7:00 in the evening so no one was sleeping. Someone said it was a fire drill. I do not find that comforting when paying a lot of money to relax and have a drill. If it wasn't a drill, they should have given us some kind of explanation.
They are limited in the snack area and there's nothing within walking distance to purchase snacks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tiger13 Excellent Hotel
One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. You pay a little more than some hotels but you get so much more in return. My kids loved the lazy river pool and all the fun activities planned daily just for them. Very relaxing for the adults. The service was superior! The atmosphere was fabulous. We plan to visit again as well as visiting other Holiday Inn Resorts in the future.
Only tips I would offer for the hotel to make it an even more awesome experience would be:
1. Add is a requirement for room key card access to the pools on all the gates. I have seen pool gates with the key card requirement at other hotels and this keeps people from other hotels from walking in from the beach, etc., more so than the bracelet method I would think.
2. Frozen drinks from Tiki bar need a better mixer or something. I am not a bartender by far but the ice in the frozen drinks was a little chunky. Don't get me wrong, they were still tasty. Just a thought so they would be more smooth.
Again,we absolutely LOVED the hotel! Will recommend it to anyone I know going to the Pensacola area.
