We had originally planned to stay in Panama City Beach, Florida during the Memorial Day weekend (last minute...on the fly trip). After a one night stay in PCB, we decided that it just wasn't what it use to be. So, with no where to stay and 7 hour drive from our home, we drove to Destin, Florida (40 minutes from PCB). We had never stayed at Resorts of Pelican Beach prior to this trip. Thankfully, I was able to secure a room for 4 nights. The front desk staff was very helpful. In fact, they let me see two different units before booking. That was awesome, because one unit had a super strong food smell. The other unit (1407) worked for us. Ocean view was gorgeous! Room tastefully decorated and clean.
I will say that the only reason I'm giving this property an average rating is because the pool chairs and the beach side chairs appeared to be from the original opening of this facility (1996)! The property gym was also very dated. Time to bring in some new!! I personally feel that when your spending lots of money for your stay, it should be nicer than you live. That's what a vacation is.
