My husband and I spent five great relaxing days at the new Holiday Inn Resort on Pensacola Beach in Sept 18th to Sept 23rd 2011. Upon arrival we were greeted by the very friendly and helpful ladies at the front desk. I had requested a high floor and told them that my husband was celebrating his birthday that week, we were giving a high floor as requested and we also got an end-room which was really nice because from the balcony you were looking directly at the beautiful white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico but if you looked off the end to your right you also had an excellent view of the Bay across the street. The hotel is brand new and very clean with a Miami Beach Art Deco look. The lazy river was wonderful and relaxing. I did not eat at the restaurant but the young male bartender was very friendly and nice and the wine selection was good and well priced. The hotels location was perfect you really did not need to drive anywhere, as there were lots of restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. I wish I could remember the names of the two ladies at the front desk because every morning when I went down for coffee and got off the elevator which was directly across from the front desk they always greeted me with a big smile and a nice hello. The only negative was one morning when I went down for coffee there was a male manager who seemed to be doing something with the computerized register who although I know he saw me ignored me so I had to wait until I saw a nice waitress who got my coffee he did turn around once and glared at me. I guess he is not a morning person. Despite grumpy I still give the hotel 5 stars because the rest of the staff was very nice and the Hotel is lovely.
