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.

First Class Beach Resort Experience from their Lazy River to the Fabulous RipTide Restaurant...Had Comfy Room with Gulf Front View of the delightful aqua-blue waters along the Sugar-White Sands of the Gulf of Mexico...I mean, who needs the Bahamas with such a marvelous Beach Front Property as the Holiday Inn Beach Resort of Pensacola, FL!!! Right across the street is even a Superior Italian Restaurant and nearby is probably one of the World's Best Souvenir Shops!!!And within walking distance is a Super Walking Pier and Band Shell with regular Top Tourist Events like the Awesome "Pensacola Taste Beach" in September, and there are regular Viewings of the Blue Angels' acrobatic Flying Team...We also enjoyed the historic Fort Pickens with Museum and gift shop just down the beach...This Resort has it ALL: Comfort, Class, Charm, Convenience, and Customer Service!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jkbdjb Exceeded our expectations!
This was our first visit here and this resort exceeded our expectations! We were impressed with staff/pool/ and maitinance how they kept everything spotless! and the routines they went through in the am/pm. The lobby/grounds/pool area are gorgeous with the lime and purple umbrellas! Everything looked fresh and new. We also appreciated that the Tikki Bar was up and running when the pool opened until the pool closed at night, our stay was Monday through Thursday. The staff came around for your food/drink orders and were attentive to your needs. We got to know Zach at the pool area and was very impressed with his hospitality! Our room was beautiful and very roomy. Had a gorgeous view of the gulf and beaches and pool area. My husband also enjoyed the fitness center.and we appreciated the complimentary coffee and fusion water in the lobby. We look forward to returning!
