Rockmart, Georgia
Reviewed 14 July 2016

My main interest is the beach and this beach is perfect. No crowd, clean sand and beautiful water. The room is clean and a cozy kitchenette. Very friendly staff. Very comfy bed and pillows. I don't use the pool, but it is a pretty view, as is the gulf from our patio. We would definately stay again.

Me and my husband has came here the past 2 years! We love it. It's at the end of the strip so it's really quiet! The tiki bar is amazing and the view is breath taking! We plan on coming back each year! The water was still a little cool this year but it was refreshing and not crowded at...

We loved the area! The staff was so accommodating getting our rooms close together since we were traveling with a family member with a walker. The staff also called our room several times while we were there to check on us and see if we needed anything!! Our family will certainly stay there again!

Was a little hesitant because of some mixed reviews but boy were they wrong! The staff was friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The rooms were a nice big size. View and location were perfect! At the quieter end of Panama City Beach but close access to the busier areas and places to eat. The hotel...

We had a delightful stay at this hotel! The front desk staff bent over backwards to accommodate our surprise 2 am arrival which we greatly appreciated. The room was very clean as well as the grounds.

We had a king room with kitchenette on the first floor. It was clean and the staff was very friendly and accomodating. You walk straight out of the door to the walkway and steps to the beach. The pool was relaxing with light music playing from The Reef bar. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay!

Rooms were clean. Only problem we had was the group next to us. However, the management made sure we were very well taken care of. The location was great!!! It was away from all of the touristy stuff but we could get there with a short drive.

The front desk clerks were very friendly the rooms were nice and clean wished it was a king size bed in the rooms. Was happy it had a microwave and fridge. The only problem I had was the air it seemed like it freezes up at night but it's cold I'm the day but it's a nice place to stay.
