The Sandpiper was a great resort to stay at during our visit. Friendly service, great rooms, and you could step right out of your room and walk a few feet to the beach. The tiki bar was also a great place to meet new place and just have fun.

My friends and I stayed in a villa at the Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort in Panama City Beach for our college spring break. The villa was in good shape despite a couple broken drawers. The wifi was terrible. House keeping came everyday and cleaned a little, took out trash, etc. which was nice because there was less cleaning for us...

If you are coming to panama for spring break then avoid coming here at all costs. 8 of my friends booked a 6-8 bedroom and only got 6 wristbands. If you don't have a wristband they will kick you off of the property so we had a lot of trouble with my other 2 friends. Theres always about a dozen...

We are deeply sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay more. It is our policy to issue wristbands to each person staying in a room, since guests are not allowed on the property without one. This policy is for the safety of our guests. We're sorry that you didn't have a more enjoyable experience.

We thought that we planned our vacation after Spring Break but we were so wrong. This resort truly is a great place for a family to stay. So many activities for all ages & so much to do on-site, that you really don't have to leave the premises unless you want to. The only drawback was the lack of security...

A group of 20 of my friends went down to PCB this Spring break. We are all in high school and we had 2 separate rooms. We did some damage but it was resolved and the front desk and maintenance worked with us. The rooms were kind of run down but in good condition for a Spring Break Resort. It...

We have been to this resort 3 times, and our kids absolutely love it! They have so many activities for the kids, as well as the adults. It is located directly on the beach and has a tiki bar directly on the beach as well. There are several room combinations, but we usually opt for the two room suites. The...

My family and I have been here multiple times. We were never disappointed. This is one of the best resorts on the beach. There are multiple pools, mini golf, on site deli, and a hot tub. The overall favorite thing on site for us was the tiki bar. From children activities during the day, to a nice fun hangout at...

We enjoyed our Panama City Beach stay at Sandpiper in spite of the error of getting an already inhabited room at first, which the front desk immediately made right, and getting locked on our balcony, thank you for the rescue front desk again. The beach is pretty even when foggy, and the facilities were more than adequate.
