Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, The Reef Hotel at Seahaven Beach Resorts combines value and fun into the perfect location on Panama City Beach. Four floors offer flexible accommodations all with private balconies and incredible views! There’s over one-quarter mile of private beach for your to explore or to simply relax and enjoy the surf. If you’d rather keep the sand out of your toes, you can cool off in the large pool or grab a seat and relax on the pool deck. During the Summer season, a Kids Club is hosted by the Seahaven Beach Resorts mascot, Finley. The coolest Shark on the Beach! They will enjoy different activities each day, both inside and out. And best of all, it’s free to all guests of The Reef Hotel. On-site dining is available just steps away from The Reef at Sharky’s Beachfront Restaurant and Tiki Bar. And, when staying at Seahaven Beach Resorts kids eat free at Sharky’s!

The only good thing to say about this 'hotel' is curiously the continental breakfast was very good, well attended, and clean. Now about our room, the place is truly a Dump. No or intermittent Hot Water, TV was a joke (essentially analog only), and water bug roaches in the

As I entered office, approx. 15 people waiting at the desk. Some had been there 2 hours waiting for staff to find them a room which they had reserved. I think the approx 7 desk clerks were all new. Never saw room, no desire to now. Too many motels to choose from to allow 1 to

We checked into our room an hour early and never saw a bug despite all the reviews. The front desk lady taylor was teaching heather along the way so it took a bit longer but we didn’t didn’t mind because they were so helpful an friendly even with people waiting behind us..

I'm so scared to stay here tomorrow 😳
I am so sorry. Possibly consider checking out your room first, and if it is junk, go back to the front desk and ask if you can transfer to another one of their hotels (they own 4 or 5). You will probably have to pay more but in the end it would be worth it. Their condos across the street look nicer but probably $100+ more per night. It still astounds me that their orome real estate could be in such bad condition. ps we were only scheduled there for three nights but left one night early and forfeited the last night rent.

I had no issues with staying here. It wasn't bad at all! It's not the Hilton but the staff are super nice people and we had children with us and I was not uncomfortable with them living in the room for almost a week. I would say give it a try! It's right on the beach and that makes up for a lot!!!
