The hotel was always clean, plenty of staff always available to help, and the multiple pools & kids water area was a huge hit while traveling with a 4 and 6 year old. The beach area was always very clean, and the entertainment was fun. I would absolutely stay here again.

This Hotel has potential but is not for adult couples without kids and is not very smoker friendly; which I’m sure some people prefer but we didn’t. Can’t smoke on the balconies. They do have a smoker section out past the pool deck that is pretty nice. They don’t spray down that deck like they do the other ones so you either have to wear shoes or you burn your feet. There are no lights out there at night either. We are glad they had that section especially since the guy at the front desk told us the only smoking section was out front by the dumpster, but they could do some things to make it more comfortable. This hotel is Very family and kid orientated. Which is ok if that is what you are looking for. We went there on our honeymoon so we were looking for an adult vacation. While we were looking for a place to stay this place said there is live entertainment every night...which is true but the band they had sucked and it echoed badly depending on where you were...and they stopped by 8pm every night because that is when the kid movie would come on by the pool; which I’m sure the kids loved but we didn’t given we were there for our honeymoon. There is really nothing to do as far as adult entertainment in the evenings. We read reviews that this hotel resort has everything that you need and that you don’t need to leave the resort the whole time your there. That is only the case if you want to spend a whole lot of money on food and drinks and want to be in bed by 10pm every night.

It was very well organized and offered many activities for all age groups. Very family oriented. Loved the water play for small children. We did not like our bathroom filling up with water during the middle of the night.

Pros: very kid friendly with a beautiful view.
Cons: front desk needs to get a little more organized. they need to make sure the rooms are ready during check in time.
when arriving to check-in we waited about 2 hours after our check-in time. the front desk isn't well organized, we kept having to check in with them to ask if our room was ready. The room service was good, because the room attendant made sure we had a pleasant stay. overrall we had a great stay.

Really really nice hotel with that would improve f

Lovely lovely place. Very comfortable, and a beautiful view. Unfortunately, I tried all the food and all the different restaurants and I have to say it all pretty much stinks. They need to work on that , otherwise I'd give them perhaps a nine or ten out of ten

Baby moon

Pros: The view was amazing, there is nothing better then waking up and seeing the ocean.
Cons: The hot tub wasn't as warm as I thought it could be, and was very low. But was still enjoyable.
Location: There were so many choices of things to do! I was a little disappointed that so many were closed, but I realize we were there in the off season.
We chose panama city florida because I am coming to the end of my pregnancy and the Dr. and my husband weren't into us going to Mexico like we usually do in the winter. The hotel was fantastic, they were doing some construction while we were there but it wasn't bothersome. It was very clean and large. The staff was very friendly. There was so much to do in the area I am glad we had a rental car. We will definitely come back in the future when our little one is old enough to enjoy the area, hopefully it will be warmer though.

Great Christmas Vacation!

The hotel staff was very caring & professional...always smiling...from the shuttle service to the front desk, to the restaurant, to the housekeeping, the female bar tenders, and to the young muscular African-American security guy walking through the grounds...everyone was just awesome. Kid friendly & restaurant food was pretty good. I would suggest a bit upgrade of the rooms compared to other Holiday Inn hotels that are new or upgraded. Thanks for a great Christmas vacation!

Cons: Need more Michelob light in your store😍😍😍
Location: Great location! U don't even have to leave - they have it ALL!
Managers Clint & Nelson were the best. Very kind and caring. Let alone the whole staff was extremely friendly. Best vacation we have had in along time. Can't wait to return for another round so we can be greeted by Ronnie The Pirate-what a hoot!!!!
