We stayed here for the first time ever the June 6-10th.We had the best time.We took 2- 11 year old boys and 2- 14 year old girls along with us.They have everything you need right there in the resort.The kids had the best time,something for them every single day nearly every single hour.We also was able to take our smallest family member our little yorkie Tebow.He had a great time on the beach and taking walks at night.It is a great location with everything you need close by.Having a kitchen was also great.We even went shopping one day and the kids (girls also) wanted to get back to see what was happening next.They provide you with a list of things they have going on all day.The luau dinner and fire show was also super great.I could go on and on about our stay,we plan to make this our family destination from now on.It is a 11-12 hour drive but so worth it because all you havet odo is sit back and relax!

If you are looking for a great place to take the entire family this is it! With movies by the ocean, games played all day, an awesome "tiki bar", and tons of other things always going on this is the only place I will ever stay in Panama City Beach. The beach is clean, the rooms are nice and big especially for price. I would hate to waste my week at one of the boring places - Sandpiper Beacon is the only place that actually feels like you are at a mini resort...not to mention Jason and Cody - they make it that much better!

This is our 3rd year visiting the Sandpiper Beacon---our home at the beach. We would not stay anywhere else---there is so much to do--never a dull moment. My grandchildren--all 3, ages 8, 4 and 2 are busy from sun up to sun down and into the night, with all the pools, slides, the lazy river, the free movies, hula lessons, face painting, Treasure Hunts, etc.., etc... etc... The staff is a group of the friendliest people you would ever want to meet. The beachside Tiki bar is very kid friendly and offers various free activities for all to enjoy. The Polynesian Show is great. My grandkids have already started asking about next year's trip. Oh---and I can take my sweet little 10 lb. 4--legged child Mistletoe with me. OK and last but not least, of course---the sandy, white beaches are absolutely gorgeous.

We have stayed at the Sandpiper Beacon 4 times. My dad came across it because it is one of the few hotels in Panama City Beach that allows pets. The rooms are very clean and the staff is always friendly. The price is great, and we love that we can get adjoining rooms for such a great rate. I would highly recommend Sandpiper to anyone looking for a place to stay in Panama City.

My family & I absolutely love & recommend the Sand Piper Beacon to everyone who wants to have a great vacation at a great price! There are so many things to do without ever having to leave the Hotel! The pools & water slides are awesome! When you've had enough sun for the day, you can relax in the indoor Lazy River & pool. There are so many activities everyday where you can win prizes, Bingo, Treasure Hunts, Karaoke, Hula lessons and lots more. Theres even an Arcade room, Play ground, Mini Golf, Laundry room, Grocery Store, Deli, Ice Cream shop & Gift shops along with all the Tiki Huts on the premises. The Staff are wonderful, if you need something, they bring it to you within minutes! The Sand Piper Beacon has just about everything you could possibly want or need! We will absolutely be going back every chance we get!

Our family had a great time!! We were traveling with 3 small children and while that is sometimes difficult, having access to so many options of entertainment made it alot easier. We had a ground floor and was able to enjoy the deck and beach without it being so far away. My personal favorite was the outdoor movie screen, It was awesome to watch a movie under the stars and hear the ocean. T

My family and I were unbelievably impressed with the staff, quality of the rooms and all of the activities offerred on cite. It was amazing. Our kids were entertained for hours on end with everything from putt-putt golf, waterslides, the lazy river, and even movie nights on the beach. The beaches and water were beautiful as usual without a drop of oil. We were relieved that the Sandpiper's beach has been spared. Sandpiper, thanks and we can't wait to come back again.
