Reviewed yesterday NEW

I wasn't expecting much from this hotel but it was very nice. We got a room with a balcony and the view is beautiful. The pool area was equal to a Disney resort pool and the beach front is beautiful, especially at night.

There are many nice things to say about this hotel, but by far, the best aspect of this stay was the staff. Everywhere we went -Riptides (hotel bar and restaurant), pool deck, room, beachside- the employees were friendly, courteous, and helpful. The gem at the front desk, Ali, was the perfect greeting: warm, happy, considerate, and trustworthy. She made you...

The resort was great, Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. The lazy river was great for the kids and the adults loved the hot tubs. Spent most of our time on the resort. Only went to the beach to pick up shells. Best vacation we've had in a long time.

We drove to Pensacola without a reservation for a 2 night break. We visited a number of hotels but this is the one we chose to stay at. The price was not the cheapest but the facilities and location won us over. The room overlooked the pool and beach which was breathtaking. The room was clean and well maintained with...

Excellent view to the beach! The outdoor installations are in good shape. That beach and pool area we'll maintain. Not to many options for food! Very slow the service's room. Other than that, the Hotel is recomendable to spend short term vacation.

A well maintained facility with very well trained staff. I give this hotel high marks in just about every category: Bed comfort, wifi, shower water pressure, room cleanliness and noise factor. Elevator waits can be a little annoying at times, but not too excessive. Hotel staff were all very well trained, professional and friendly. A sign of good management no...

We’re here for you, offering the amenities you need to plan the perfect vacation – or host the best business meeting. From your private balcony or the terrace of our ample 10,000 square foot event space, take in dazzling views of the sparkling waters and shimmering sands of Pensacola Beach – recently named No. 5 of all U.S. beaches by TripAdvisor. Its natural beauty is offset by our bright, modern lobby and stylish, comfortable guest rooms – including colorful Kids’ Suites designed with your family in mind. We’re all about fun here at the Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach hotel, and you’ll feel it from the front desk to the pool deck. Our pool is the best on the beach, with cascading waterfalls and a 250-foot seasonally heated Lazy River. There’s no reason to leave the resort, with Riptides Sports Grill and Beachfront Tiki Bar serving up delicious dining and crafty cocktails seven days a week. If you do decide to get out, we’re within walking distance of the beach’s best restaurants, nightlife and activities including charter fishing, paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking and biking. We’re also a quick drive to regional attractions such as the National Naval Aviation Museum, Fort Pickens, Gulf Islands National Seashore, Historic Downtown Pensacola, Pensacola Lighthouse, Blue Wahoos Baseball Stadium, Veterans Memorial Park and the Saenger Theatre.
