The room was very spacious and it was perfect for our family of 5. It had a small kitchenette in the room which allowed for us to have cool food and beverages on the hot day when we were there. The pool was nice but could use some updating to go along with the new bar they just built.

Loved our stay here. Room was clean and spacious. My only negative is, our room was close to the elevator and ice machine, so we heard that at night. Gulf front balcony was great, only wish there was a sliding door. Over all, great place to stay. Would definitely return!

We had the pleasure of staying last week at the Beachcomber by the Sea resort. It was a perfect fit for our family of four. We had a great view of the ocean - which was important since it was the first time for our daughters to see the ocean. The room was a nice size for our family. The...

My wife and I always stay at this location for our beach stay in Panama City. Nice rooms with stove, fridge, microwave, balcony, and beachfront views. Very convenient to beach access. The king size beds are very soft and comfortable. Customer service is always great here too.

The overall facility and staff were very nice and accommodating. However, unless you plan on eating out for almost every meal, I wouldn't recommend staying here as the kitchen area isn't really suited for cooking for more than two people. That being said I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The beds were comfortable, and are made for you everyday by the...

This hotel is right by the sea, it has lovely views, I believe each room has a sea side balcony. Private swimming pool and hot tub, private beach with seating. Rooms are very clean, smell amazing, and the staff is very helpful. Breakfast has a huge selection.

The entire place was wonderful. The staff were very friendly. Plenty of parking (though it could have just been because of the time of year for the visit). The location was perfect. Thomas' Donuts was a short walk down the road as well as a few other great touristy eateries. My only real complaints: we were not told when checkout...
