Enjoyable Vacation

Great location with friendly and helpful staff. They provided quick and efficient service in every instance. Lots of amenities and services. Beautiful view from any where in hotel. Could have gone without the constant music, they had a concert, 16 hour DJ and karaoke. The cleaning staff would some times do a quick clean instead of doing a full one but that was fixed after I called the service desk. I will definitely stay there again. Loved the location which is close to everything. Large pool for family fun. Rooms get great lighting which makes the beach irresistible. Didn't know a Holiday Inn could be so nice.

Resort amenities at hotel prices

We just got back from a fantastic family vacation at the Holiday Inn Resort. This was one of the best hotel experiences I've had in recent memory. The location is perfect - right on the beach and a 10-minute drive from anything worth doing in the city. There is beach access and several pools. There is a great kiddy pool/play/splashpad area, that my 3-year old loved (despite the somewhat cool weather). The best part of the pools is that the large main pool is heated. Even though the weather was on the cool side for an outdoor pool during our stay, the heated pool made it quite comfortable to spend a few hours there with the family. We only ate the breakfast buffet during our stay, but it was very good in both quality and selection. Every single person that I dealt with in the hotel, from management all the way down to landscapers and housekeeping, were exceptionally helpful and friendly. The rooms were on par with what I'd expect from a Holiday Inn. This isn't a 5-star resort, but there was a nice TV, a full-size fridge and decent beds. Every room has a balcony and an ocean view. The only downside is that every room also overlooks the pool, which is open until midnight. If you're a light/early sleeper it could be a bit noisy for you. Overall, this is an exceptional value for the money. I stay in PCB one or two times a year, and I don't think I would take my family anywhere else. Highly recommended!

a great time

excellent amenities. excellent place for families and kids. only negatives were the loud music out by the pool which would become endless starting at around 930am or so making it hard to sleep in... also, the beds weren't the best. one of the mattresses sank in pretty bad... basically broken box springs. the blankets left something to be desired as well. otherwise, no complaints.

One night on the way home

OMG it really doesn't get any better than this. ALL rooms are waterfront facing the Gulf of Mexico and amazing sunsets, and all rooms have private balconies. The rooms themselves are huge with two sinks (one in the bathroom and one in the room), full sized refrigerators, microwave, safe, flat screen TVs and DVD players. The pools and hot tub are heated and available from 8a-midnight. There is direct beach access, 24 hour shuttle service to/from the parking lot, two restaurants (though one - The Bamboo Grill - is closed currently for construction), two bars (inside is the Sunset Lounge and outside between the pool and the beach is the Oasis Tiki Bar). There really is nothing bad for me to say about this hotel and I will definitely stay here again.
