Loved this resort! Even though it was winter, we still went to the beach and hung out. LOVED the firepit by the pool! Perfect way to warm up after a chilly day at the beach. Room was great and hotel was walking distance to restaurants. Will return!

This property is in a wonderful location right on the white sand beach. Rooms are large and clean. Spent two nights here and glad we did. Weather is warmer than usual this time of year so it made for an enjoyable stay. Close to many good restaurants.

This is by far my favorite hotel on Pensacola Beach! I love the pool, lazy river, hot tubs, hammocks, fire pits, corn hole, ping pong, game room, right on the beach, beautiful sunrises and sunsets...but the best part of this hotel is the awesome staff. They go above and beyond to make your stay wonderful. They are all so friendly...

This is the best place to stay for couples or family. First the staff are extremely helpful and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable.

We’re here for you, offering the amenities you need to plan the perfect vacation – or host the best business meeting. From your private balcony or the terrace of our ample 10,000 square foot event space, take in dazzling views of the sparkling waters and shimmering sands of Pensacola Beach – recently named No. 5 of all U.S. beaches by TripAdvisor. Its natural beauty is offset by our bright, modern lobby and stylish, comfortable guest rooms – including colorful Kids’ Suites designed with your family in mind. We’re all about fun here at the Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach hotel, and you’ll feel it from the front desk to the pool deck. Our pool is the best on the beach, with cascading waterfalls and a 250-foot seasonally heated Lazy River. There’s no reason to leave the resort, with Riptides Sports Grill and Beachfront Tiki Bar serving up delicious dining and crafty cocktails seven days a week. If you do decide to get out, we’re within walking distance of the beach’s best restaurants, nightlife and activities including charter fishing, paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking and biking. We’re also a quick drive to regional attractions such as the National Naval Aviation Museum, Fort Pickens, Gulf Islands National Seashore, Historic Downtown Pensacola, Pensacola Lighthouse, Blue Wahoos Baseball Stadium, Veterans Memorial Park and the Saenger Theatre.
