Panama City Beach hotels are spread over almost 30 miles of coastline on the Gulf of Mexico where white sand meets clear, blue water and some of the best beaches in Florida. With a long list of things to do at hand on shore and plenty of great Florida hotels and motels to choose between, tourists will find the area accommodating to all needs, exciting for all ages, and adjacent to numerous other activities and attractions away from the beach.
Bay Point Marriott Golf & Spa Resort
The Bay Point Marriott Golf & Spa Resort has 316 guest rooms and golf villas, a commanding view over St Andrew’s Bay—one of the nicest spots in Panama City Beach— and a long list of amenities to enjoy. Bay Point Marriott enjoys a Florida golf treasure—the only Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course in northwest Florida, paired with the Meadows Course for 36 rounds of championship golf. Space for special events totals 40,000 square feet, four restaurants create welcome diversity, and a 12,000-square-foot spa facility are the tip of the iceberg. A kid’s club, nearby shopping malls, water sports, and plenty of fishing and wildlife tours cap it off.
Palmetto Inn & Suites
Panama City Beach hotels include Palmetto Inn & Suites where a sweeping sundeck, complete with pool and chaises, meets the beach. Guests enjoy free transportation to and from the nearby airport, outdoor and indoor pools, and scores of beach activities, including parasailing and snorkeling. Efficiency, regular, and deluxe suites, almost all with kitchens and kitchenettes, create options for all budgets. Families with small children welcome amenities like two children’s pools and a beachfront playground; all in all, this is one of the top options for Panama City Beach vacations with kids. Beach volleyball, shuffleboard, and beachfront grills add value to the immediate outdoors while nearby Pier Park entertainment complex, Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, and the fishing pier provide more things to do off the beach.
Driftwood Lodge on the Gulf
Driftwood Lodge on the Gulf is another of the Panama City Beach hotels offering guests a choice between several different floor plans to ideally suit all groups. Gulf-view rooms, a large sundeck and heated pool, a picnic area, and a charming courtyard are part of the package. Driftwood Lodge goes the extra mile and often plans special events such as Super Bowl and Mardi Gras parties and Mother’s and Father’s Day events.
Legacy by the Sea
Legacy by the Sea is set within walking distance of a popular dining, shopping, and entertainment complex, opposite Gulf World Marine Park, and best of all, directly on the beach. Guest accommodations include suites with hot tubs, gulf-view rooms with private terraces, and penthouses with numerous luxury amenities. Within the grounds of the fourteen-story hotel is a water-front bar and grill, a heated beachfront pool and fitness center, laundry facilities, and a computer center. Also, enjoy the kick-back of one free kid’s meal with every paid adult meal and free continental breakfasts.
Holiday Inn Resort
Family State rooms, Kids rooms, and Penthouse suites tie in perfectly with the Holiday Inn Resort’s beachfront Seawatch entertainment facility, Aqualand water-based playground, and the games-oriented Pirate’s Den. An onsite restaurant, Splash Kids Club, and convenient beach services create an ideal backdrop for families and many things to do. The local area is packed with golf courses, theme parks, state parks, shopping, and myriad dining choices. Holiday Inn Resort is one of few Panama City Beach hotels offering numerous vacation packages and deals consistently so there’s always a way to save.
