We had a wonderful time at the sandpuper, Lived that there was so much for the kids to do and enjoy, Also the daily drink specials, We really enjoyed every minute abd with so many events at the hotel we really didn't have to go anywhere else to have fun, the only thing that I complained about was most if the vending machine weren't working and the hours fir the laundry room, Over all we had a great experience and uf we ever can afford another vacation in Florida we would consider the sandpiper again, Thanks

I have taken my girls here since they were 4 and 6. They are now 14 and 16 and still love it. Very clean room, stayed in the 2 room suite in hotel. Love the staff. Always friendly and ready to help out with any needs. I can't wait to get there next year. Loved it

Room Tip: the beach house is awesome, but money wise this year we rented the 2 room suite by the pool which wa...

My husband and I went with 2 Grand kids both
girls ages 12, The girls had a blast at all the events taking
place. My husband enjoyed the hot tub most of the time.
We never left the resort with the mini golf, swimming, water slide
and Tiki Bar plenty to do once the car is park it stays parked till we leave

Wish the really young children would not be allowed in hot tub.
they come in with floats and this tub is already so full.

The free activities for the families are great we love the outdoor movie night
with free popcorn

We stayed for 5 nights and would have LOVED to have stayed longer.The Sandpiper Beacon is a great place whether you are bringing kids or just the adults.We had kids and had a WONDERFUL time!!!They have something going on all the time for the kids...free outside movies with popcorn,free putt putt(which my boys loved),hula lessons,xbox hours,family karaoke,a Polynesian Show that was great,inside lazy river,water slides,tatoos and arts and crafts...too much to list it all.Several tiki bars which have alcohol and non alcoholic drinks,beachside deli,ice cream shop...you name it.There is only 1 COMPLAINT I have....There was so much for the kids on site,that my boys did not want to leave the whole time we were there!!!!!Of course we saved money that way..lol The staff was EXCELLENT!!Very friendly and helpful!!Rooms are clean and very worth the money

On arrival, elevator was broken (lightening strike).....we were on the 7th floor...taking steps up from the 3rd floor up.... we decided to try it because I wanted an ocean view. I have ruptured discs in my spine and degenerative joint disease in my hip and was feeling it the next day. My husband and I went down to the office and asked to be moved. The desk clerk and manager did all the could to make it up to us and gave us a wonderful room, ground level... open the door and can see the beach from the patio. Also, very close to everything else they had to offer. I enjoyed laying on the hammocks beneath the beautiful palm trees, listening to the ocean waves and feeling the gentle breeze blowing. I hadn't felt so relaxed in a long time. My two sons are very stretched apart in age, one 16 the other 9... I must say there was a variety of activities and amenities that they both could enjoy. They loved beach side bingo and family karaoke.... the tiki bar area was family friendly.... we only left the resort twice in the 6 nights we were there... once to go eat and the other to go to Shell island. There was no need to leave. We had it all right there at the resort.
My husband had been told previously that the sandpiper was old and that we would not like it.... he and I both now agree that we will never stay any place else in Panama City Beach. We loved it so much we were sad to leave. Our family felt comfortable there. I felt safe allowing my children to be out on the property without me watching their every move. The employees there are all courteous and friendly and worked very hard to make our stay a pleasant one. I honestly do not believe we can wait an entire year to come back... you may be seeing us again before next summer! Thank you again for making our stay so great.... we found our new home away from home. (would move there if we could)

Room Tip: Many of the ground floor rooms are right at the beach, so if youre looking for a beach or ocean view...

Great place for a trip to the beach. We are a couple but enjoy the Sandpiper very much. If I were taking kids it would be NO 1 on my list.
Getting a little pricey, but I want to book a 1st floor room with a small pet and you pay for that.
This was our 6th trip and will be back at the Piper next year
Maid service not real good. they will sweep your room and bring towels but as far as cleaning sinks and stools no

Love all the things you have for family. Rooms need to be a updated! Carpet was really worn but besides that loved being there!! The staff was excellent and very nice. The view to the ocean was beautiful! The ice cream parlor was the best ice cream we ever had! Love the hula dancers and fire dancer! The hotel has lots to do and enjoyed being there. It was my family's first time in Panama City beach and we loved it! We will now take our vacation there! Hoping next year to stay in one of your beach houses! Can't wait to come back!
