Between the Polynesian Fire show, sounds of the surf, and the salt air, it felt like an Island getaway. The rooms are clean and modern, the food is incredible, and the staff seems to really enjoy being there. It's become a bi-annual tradition and we plan just outside the busy season for a relaxing getaway. Looking forward to next time around.
Me and my son have been coming down here since he was 15. We always get the breakfast included in the rate. We love the breakfast buffet, so that is one of our main draws. Anna, Karen always great servers. Charles in Security helped us with out lost keys and we felt very safe with him and the security staff, The lazy river was such an awesome addition to the resort. I will be coming back in November for a nice couple getaway, can't wait to get back to this amazing place.
Awesome place to stay!! Rooms were very clean and the service was outstanding. They even went out of there way to help and let me borrow a piece of equipment I needed for work. The food was delicious and the shows were top notch!
Where do I begin? We have been to the Holiday Inn resort for many years. Every year that we go they have added something new or upgraded something. On our last vacation all of the rooms had been upgraded and they are lovely. This year, we were so excited to see the new lazy river on the pool deck. It did not disappoint! We honestly spent every day on that lazy river. Lol. There is nothing like laying by the pool or the lazy river with a piña colada in your hand and listening to the music and the waves from the gulf. The staff was amazing from the front desk, to housekeeping to security and all of the food and drink outlets. We were greeted as soon as we got there from one of the managers in the parking lot and he made sure that we got a luggage cart and a ride from the guest parking on a golf cart. Our son is 16 so he was too cool to participate in all of the activities they had going on for kids. They keep the kids very busy all day which I’m sure is nice for the parents. They also have live music at night and a sunset ceremony every single night which was awesome! Last but certainly not least, everything was super clean. Our room was clean our bathroom was clean and the housekeeping service was awesome. Our goal for our vacation this year was to relax and enjoy each other and just spend time with no worries. The Holiday Inn resort gave us everything we needed to make that happen. See you next year!!…
Excellent location and plenty for kids to do! Never have to leave, everything you need in one location! The Beach, Pool, Lazy River, Hot Tub, Entertainment, Food, and one of the best parts is a convenient store on site.
When we pulled up for check in - we were greeted at the car and never once touched our luggage! It was taken to our room after check in and he even put things in the refrigerator and cut our icemaker on for us! All rooms are beachfront. There's a full size refrigerator and microwave plus a Keurig Coffee Maker in the room! There's Movies by the pool, Beach Bonfires, Poolside entertainment, Kids activities, Convenience store onsite, Great food and drinks! There's a HUGE pool with Music playing, the lazy river was fabulous and the kids water park was so entertaining for the little ones! Lots of lounge chairs on the pool deck and nice outdoor sofas, chairs and seating all around the pool bar area to enjoy a cocktail, have an appetizer, lunch or dinner or just watch the waves! That was my favorite place to relax and enjoy the scenery! The staff at the resort was fabulous! if I ever walked past an employee anywhere, they acknowledged and spoke! I even had a few members of management come by and say hello and to see if we needed anything and make sure we were enjoying ourselves! It is TRULY a "Park your car and never have to leave" place! You owe it to yourself and your family to give it a try! Thank you Holiday Inn Resort, that was vacationing at it's FINEST!…
The Holiday Inn Resort in PCB has been my family vacation spot since I was a child and now my wife and I enjoy it just as much. The Lazy river has been an exciting addition. And who could ever get tired of the beach view from EVERY ROOM.
We are visiting Panama City beach as part of a round trip around the southern states. Initially we checked into the Hyatt and stayed there for 3 night. We heard really good things about the holiday inn resort and decided to switch hotels for a couple nights for a change of scenery. It was about $100 more a night but thought it would be worth it because of all the extra activities they offered. We’ll it definitely wasn’t worth it! We paid $400 Canadian a night, which is currently just over $300 usd a night. Pros: movie night by the pool each night. And the fire dancers were cool. Nice pool and splash park. Nice beach. They let us check in early (11am) Large fridge and microwave in the rooms That’s about it. Cons: went to the beach for the scheduled kids activity but no one showed up. They charge $50 a day to rent 2 chairs and an umbrella on the beach Drinks and food are waaaaaay overpriced. $50 usd per person for breakfast buffet! We asked for a higher floor and they said no because we booked through a 3rd party (hotels.com). They gave us the second floor and our view was the the hotel bar. Floors in the room were filthy. I spilt something and went to wipe it up and the paper towel was black. No hooks to hang any of your towels. Like zero. Overall definitely not worth the price. The hotel we stayed at before, down the street was cheaper, new and clean, free breakfast buffet and free chairs and umbrella on the beach. Wish we wouldn’t have switched. Waste of money!…
It's always a pleasure when we stay at The Holiday Inn Resort! It's so nice when you come to stay and the staff remembers you and always greet us with a "welcome back" This trip we brought the kids and they thoroughly enjoyed the lazy river and the nightly movies by the pool. Plus we saved money as they ate free with our meal purchase. As always too notch service, security, and staff! Worth it! We truly feel like our home away from home! We will be back!
Our experience at Holiday Inn Resort was fantastic! From check in to check out it was first class! The staff, servers, and entertainment was top rate. Me and my family wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Panama City Beach! I highly recommend this family friendly resort and can’t wait to return!!
