Panama City Beach Resorts

The Panama City Beach resorts are among the most popular lodging properties in northwest Florida. Their locations along miles of white-sand beaches are reason enough to keep them in mind when planning a Florida vacation, and it doesn’t hurt that Panama City Beach offers more than just beautiful beaches.

There are lots of beach hotels in Panama City Beach, and while most offer good facilities, it is hard to top the resort hotels in terms of overall amenities. The resort properties also tend to offer more onsite activity options than your average hotel, and as such, guests are likely to find that getting bored simply isn’t an option. The following resorts are among the properties that visitors are encouraged to consider, and it certainly doesn’t hurt to weigh all of the available options.

Majestic Beach Resort

A number of Panama City Beach resorts offer condo-style units. This effectively means that they are able to blend the vacation rental experience with the resort experience. One such example is the Majestic Beach Resort. An all around good value, this resort at 10901 Front Beach Road boasts a wonderful location and offers more than 600 feet of beachfront for guests to enjoy. The tasteful condo units range from studios to four-bedroom units, and each is equipped with a kitchen, private laundry facilities, cable TV and a DVD player. Outside of the condo units, guests at the Majestic Beach Resort will find no fewer than five different pools, and there are scores of water sports activities to select from. Other highlights include a fitness center, a restaurant (seasonal) and a convenient market that sells food items, beverages and souvenirs. Tennis courts also figure among the Majestic Beach Resort facilities, and guests can enjoy access to a nearby golf club for an added fee.

Edgewater Beach Resort

More officially known as the Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort, this property pleases on so many different levels. For starters, there’s an inviting beachfront location, and as the resort’s name would imply, guests can always look to add some golfing to the mix. On the resort grounds is a nine-hole, par-3 executive course, and guests can enjoy privileges at the nearby Hombre Golf Club. When Edgewater Beach Resort guests aren’t hanging out on the beach or teeing it up for a round of golf, they can relax at the beachfront pool and patio area. Two hot tubs complement the swimming pool in this area. Ten other swimming pools also figure on the resort’s list of facilities, as do six tennis courts, a Wellness & Fitness center, a bar and grille, a coffee shop, and a small market that serves up ice cream and other treats. Only adding to the allure of the Edgewater Beach Resort are its well-equipped guest units. They offer similar amenities as the Majestic Beach Resort, which has something to do with the fact that they are sister properties. 11212 Front Beach Road is the Edgewater Beach Resort's address.

Calypso Resort

The Calypso Resort & Towers has little trouble attracting guests with its two- and three-bedroom condo units. There are also one-bedroom units to select from should the extra space not be required. All of the condo units are privately owned, and they are also well-equipped and comfortable. This inviting resort hotel at 15817 Front Beach Road features a private strip of sand for its guests to unwind on, and there are plenty of water sports activities to indulge in. A collection of swimming pools are among the available facilities, and it should be noted that the Calypso is about as close to the Pier Park retail and entertainment complex as can be. In other words, guests should have little trouble finding things to do when they aren’t relaxing in their cozy quarters.

Boardwalk Beach Resort

The Boardwalk features a wonderful Kids Club that is open from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend. There is also a special kids pool area that is reserved for condo guests. No discussion about the Boardwalk Beach Resort would be complete without also mentioning its convention center. All kinds of special events are held at the center, and the Boardwalk staff is happy to help guests arrange their own functions. 9400 South Thomas Drive is the resort’s address.
