The property was great, really relaxing get away. People were nice and friendly. The hotel was clean. the drinks were great. I would recommend the hotel to family and friends and we will be back.

Helpful staff great customer service very friendly all of the from management to house keeping

Allison from the restaurant was the best, our room was cleaned daily, however had to constantly go get coffee and/or other things that were not refilled. The lazy river pool is great, however, too small for the amount of people at the hotel ! Overall, great family place !

Love the lazy river. Free breakfast would be better. Very friendly staff

Overall, this is a great location. The pool is great, just hard to find a seat at times, and the beach access is convenient. My room was right near the elevator, so there was a motor noise every time one of the elevators was used. Eventually I got used to it, but it made falling asleep difficult. I didn’t ask to change rooms because I just really didn’t want to pack up all of our stuff again! This type of room should be given a discount, or at least some acknowledgement when checking in (or add some sound proof between the elevator and the room!).

We liked the lazy river and proximity to the beach!

The lazy river was awesome! Also, the customer service was the best!

Very nice and fun!! Kids loved it and there was plenty to do. Walking distance of all the restaurants.

Bathtub in our room took forever to drain, bathroom smell like mildew upon entering the room everything looks dingy and nasty i would rate this hotel much lower but staffs at restaurant was nice and kids friendly place makes it a little more appealing to families with young kids other than that i would not stay again

Absolutely the best all around hotel we have ever stayed at. This hotel is directly on the Gulf. The rooms have it all. Spacious, clean, comfortable beds and plenty of fast elevators (which is a huge plus). The lazy river was awesome and the water was truly 82 degrees. I have gone to places which claim the water in the pools are warm but then you find out it’s freezing! Not here. Also, three hot tubs, outdoor bathrooms and game room for the kids. The in hotel restaurant ‘Riptides’ was 5 star with 2 star pricing. The best food and best buffet I have ever had. Service was 5 star. This hotel has way too much to list here. The staff were amazing from check in to check out. We would without a doubt recommended to anyone.

Very nice hotel at Pensacola Beach. It is within walking distance to visitor center and stores and restaurants nearby. Its outdoor pool and spa were very impressive and certainly a place to relax.

Rooms are nice but nothing special. You aren’t really here for the rooms. They were clean and reasonably comfortable. The view from our balcony was great. The pool area was nice and there was easy access to a great beach area. The breakfast was fabulous. We enjoyed it each morning we were there. It was large enough we skipped lunch a couple of days. Front desk staff was extremely friendly. We will definitely stay here again

Love the Hotel and the easy access to beach Room was very clean and was cleaned daily.

First night a/c made loud noise throughout the night, but didn't want to make a big deal as things happen. I thought the a/c could have been much quieter. Our toilet didn't seem like it had been cleaned so my husband cleaned with Lysol. We stayed three days and on our room wasn't cleaned for our last night. We had to go and ask for clean towels since they didn't clean the room and tidy things up ourselves. The hotel is in a great location, but I think for the amount of money we paid the hotel room attendants could have been more attentive.

Check in went very well. Staff clerk was very helpful. Out door area was first class. The pool / lazy river very enjoyable. Access to the ocean was very comfortable, easy to reach. Bar staff at pool area friendly and provided great waitress service. I would not recommend breakfast buffet. Food wasn't very hot at serving, 3 days bacon was burnt, coffee was way too strong. Our room was comfortable, balcony facing the ocean was awesome. I would recommend the resort for a nice vacation.

Hotel was amazing for our honeymoon. We loved every moment and every amenity.
