Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Decor varies from condo to condo
  • Sky Bridge from parking garage can be very hot

Bottom Line

This 276-room, condo-style property located right on the sand in Panama City Beach is extremely kid-friendly. Beyond the bright colors and fun animal paintings, this resort also features an interactive water park, arcade with mini bowling alley, and fun lazy river. Each of the cheerful, homey condos -- some of which can sleep up to 10 people -- offer kitchens, washer/dryer, and balconies with gorgeous views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Beachfront in Panama City Beach

Miles and miles of beautiful, white sand attract thousands of tourists annually to Panama City Beach. It’s an especially popular destination during Spring Break, drawing waves of high school and college students. A mid-2000s construction boom resulted in the building of numerous high-rise condos and hotels. In addition to these new structures, the Florida Panhandle’s main thoroughfare is lined with a variety of mini-golf businesses, arcades, souvenir shops, and seafood restaurants. Other nearby attractions include the scuba diving shop Diver’s Den, Pier Park, St. Andrews State Park, and the Museum of Man in the Sea.
