For the price, location and service, you cannot find a better place to stay in Panama City! I love all the activities and the convenience of the water sport rentals! Tha lazy river and the hot tub just tops this place off! You don't have to leave the resort for anything! It is great!

Love never having to leave the Sandpiper! Love the fact that there is always something to do, too!! Rain or shine! Luckily, while there was rain in the forecast we saw just a short time of rain! Looking forward to the next Family beach trip😊

Super comfy bed. Pull out couch mattress sleeps better on the floor. Partial view was a full view to us. Quite room. Air conditioning and a fan was heaven. No shampoo but we brought our own anyway. I would stay here again. Really great if you have small children. You really would not have to leave. We had a kitchenette...

First off, this is no 5 star hotel that caters to your every need and leaves all the cute toiletries for you. However, this is a fun, relaxing, casual, beachy place to stay. It was the best escape I have ever had. We had a third floor room with a kitchenette. The beach view was spectacular! It was postcard perfect....

This was my second resort that I stayed and I will be returning back. School is back in session and I am glad I got to stay here before going back. I have found this hotel on from a guidebook I found in FSU Tallahassee for a really great deal. I have found the spot for my next spring break...

Right on the beach, clean rooms, and very friendly staff. Located close to a Winn-Dixie which was very convenient especially since there were grills on site. I would highly recommend Sandpiper Beacon Resort to anyone staying in Panama.
