Can't say enough about the Sandpiper Beacon Resort! This was our first time staying there and we could not have picked a better place! The staff was excellent and very helpful & friendly from day one! Our boys (ages 3 & 6) had a blast from face painting to a scavenger hunt! We definitely recommend this place to anyone and we will be staying there again!! The rate was very affordable and plenty of activities even in October!! It is truly "The Fun Place"!

Sandpiper Beacon is a great place! We plan on going back every year (this was our second trip). Staff is great -very informative and helpful! We loved having the beach right out back and there is so much to do for fun without ever leaving the resort! Family friendly activities and affordable rates!!

My family and I go to the Sandpiper Beacon in Panama City every year for 6 years now. We never have to leave the hotel. We have 4 girls all different ages and there is so much they can do that as their mom i do get to have so relaxing drinks by the pool while they swim. There are arts and crafts kids karaoke (so cute to see) pool after pool after hot tub and a LAZY RIVER. My 6 year old loves the big slide and she has been going down it since she was 2 years old. THANK YOU FOR THIS FAMILY FUN HOTEL.....

This hotel needs to be totally remodeled. The room had filthy carpeting, an air conditioner that had two temperatures, hot or cold, and a horribly hard mattress. The bed only had sheets & a bed spread on it that was dirty and stained, and no blanket. We only stayed there because it was pet friendly ($20/day/pet). Next time we will definitely rent a pet friendly condo.

The Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort is the best "family" friendly place to go!!! We love the lazy river, the minature golf, the water slide, the swimming pools, the sailboat rides, there is so much to do. We rented the villa this year< our second time to go> and love the fact that we had our own house!! There were eight of us, and we were really comfortable. We played (family friendly) games in the Tiki Bar, and won a sailboat ride for four! It was so exciting!! The beaches are beautiful, and the resort is too. The employees are awesome and very friendly, and the price is totally in budget!!!
Thank you Sandpiper for yet another wonderful family vacation!! See ya next year!

7/2012 The location is ok (to far away from walmart) but the resturant across the street is the BEST, the games for the kids are great, the staff is excellent. The rooms are awful (no room for anything), The prices are way to high, OMG and the Elevators are hotter than the Florida Sun Shine!!!!!!!!! The Tiki Bar closing @ 11 so the kids have to leave...That stinks, the kids can stay up longer than the adults and that's like telling us it's past our bed time hellooooo this is our Vacation!!!!
The Deli Food mmm not so good. The indoor lazy river is hot in the building no air flowing at all, and the pool water is freezing
THE BEACH IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!

My husband and I stayed there this past week and had the best four days on the beach. We were able to get things from the grocery and the deli. Most things were reasonable in price. There were some children around but many to make too much noise. There were a lot of smokers though. The staff was very accomidating and professional. The one thing that is horrid is the parking right out in front of the hotel. You really have to be careful to not be hit when exiting!
