Panama City Beach, Florida

If you're looking for a perfect hotel in Pensacola Beach, this is it! The rooms were beautifully furnished, spacious, and spotless. The staff were friendly, professional, and very helpful. The restaurant and bar are top notch. A wonderful 2 night stay.

We stayed in a King Executive Gulf View suite during our honeymoon. This was amazing! The location was right on the water and the room itself was well appointed with beautiful views of the HoF of Mexico! Staff at the hotel never failed to be nice to us and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. We...

I don't normally leave reviews but this hotel was exceptional. We stayed one night (Jan. 3); the staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating and the rooms were beautiful. The food was reasonably priced and tasted great, as well. Despite the cold weather the view was amazing - we even saw dolphins from our balcony in the morning! The beach being...

Hi Elizabeth! Thank you so much for the review, we appreciate the feedback and are so happy you had a wonderful stay with us. Interesting fact: this area has one of the largest population of Atlantic Bottle-nosed Dolphins on the Gulf Coast! They love to swim the coastline in front of the hotel.. pretty cool to see these beautiful creatures...

This is a great beach hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and very nicely appointed. The gulf side views are better than the bay side views, but the rooms on both sides are identical. There's a very nice pool. Jimmy Buffet music plays in the lobby to put you in the mood for being by the ocean -- not that...

Thank you for the review UrsulalnFlorida! We're glad you enjoyed your stay! Like you mentioned, earlier in the week and our shoulder season, which runs November-March is a bit quieter here. If you're looking to get away from the crowds, and enjoy a piece of Paradise in peace and quite, then these are great times to get away. Looking forward...

Despite stormy weather, great time at this first class hotel. Gulf view with a balcony & clean, spacious rooms. Delicious dinner & breakfast at Frank & Lola's. Free parking & Internet. Party favors for New Years & champagne to toast in 2016. Our 2nd visit to Margarittaville & we will be back!

Could not have been more impressed by this extremely clean and classy place. The staff were extremely helpful both while booking and during our stay. The corner king executive suite was perhaps the finest hotel room we've ever experienced, with fabulous and ever-changing views of the Gulf surf, the bay, and the view down Ft. Pickens Road. Walking distance to...

Beautiful property. Be sure to make time to visit the Landshark bar on the beach. Lovely. Several nice freebees once you check in. They say rooms are small but ours was very comfortable for a family of 4 . The oceanfront was worth it! Entire staff were very friendly.

Prior to booking my first visit to Margarittaville, I viewed photos and read some reviews. The hotel is as good as the photos show. Many reviewers noted the friendliness of the staff. It wasn't hyperbole. They are all genuinely nice and enthusiastic. It started with the staff that greeted me when I opened my car door to exit and went...
