Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Miramar Beach is a pretty, sprawling property with a total of 1600 rooms. It is organized like a little town that can be broken down into four resorts and 30 separate neighborhoods -- each with different decor and price range. Depending on the size of their group and budget, guests can choose between a standard hotel room, condo, villa, or town home. In addition to a village and market full of shops, restaurants, and entertainment, this resort is brimming with recreational activities: a 98-slip marina, 15 tennis courts, 19 pools, four golf courses, and over seven miles of beachfront.
Portofino Island Resort & Spa

Portofino Island Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Portofino Island Resort and Spa offers a total of five Mediterranean-inspired towers with two- and three-bedroom condo units. All rooms have balconies with great views over the beaches to the Gulf of Mexico or Santa Rosa Sound. Convenient perks in the condos include fully equipped kitchens and washer/dryers. Each tower has its own outdoor pool and the resort offers a long list of water and land sports, as well as a free dolphin cruise and a floating water park. While there is no direct beach access -- the beach is across a street -- this resort does offer spa services, a total of three restaurants, and free Wi-Fi.
WaterColor Inn & Resort

WaterColor Inn & Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The WaterColor Inn & Resort is reminiscent of its name, with beach-y whites, blues, and light greens dominating the color scheme throughout the lobby and rooms. The inn offers an airy and relaxing atmosphere, and sits right on a beautiful private beach. It's part of a larger resort community that's packed with amenities, including four restaurants, water sports, bike rentals, and a long wooden pathway leading to the beach. While there are several pools for sunbathing, some guests complain about the wristband and strict towel policies.
Shores of Panama by Oaseas Resorts

Shores of Panama by Oaseas Resorts Rating: 3.5 Pearls

As the name hints, the Shores of Panama by Oaseas Resorts sits right on the lovely white sands of Panama City Beach. Each of the 796 rooms offers balconies with beautiful ocean views, a full-size kitchen, and washer/dryer. A huge pool deck features a sprawling free-form pool and tall tropical palm trees, providing a tranquil feel despite the resort's size. There are special activities here for kids including face painting, movie nights, and Rock Band tournaments. The fitness center is modern, if a bit dark, with cardio machines featuring individual TVs, and there's a full-service spa. But there are hidden cleaning fees associated with rentals, and the decor and maintenance of units varies widely; guests may end up with a dated, worn condo.
Carillon Beach Inn

Carillon Beach Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The Carillon Beach Inn is a 70-room, all-suite property with modern furnishings and sharp decor located on Lake Carillon in a sprawling, village-like resort complex. While the location doesn't offer direct beach access, the sand is less than a five-minute walk away, and guests get access to the many amenities of the Carillon Beach resort community. Suites are immaculately clean and comfortable with kitchenettes featuring stainless steel appliances. Cute, playful touches include sand dollar and fish-patterned pillows and chairs. Some suites have lovely fireplaces and outdoor private Jacuzzis, while all are equipped with flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. While there are few options for nearby off-site dining, Sweet Taste Wine Bar is located within the property.
Emerald Beach Resort

Emerald Beach Resort Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Emerald Beach is one of Panama City's high-rise beach resorts. This condo property shares common spaces with the Wyndham, which is a bit unorthodox, but the pools are big with plenty of lounge space. Condo units have full kitchens, washer/dryers, and dishwashers, but decor can vary wildly as some units are privately owned. The upper floor Sky Bar is a unique feature in the area, offering nightlife including music performances, karaoke night, and football games on TV. While the resort has some strict rules -- like no coolers or drinks by the pool -- the beach is beautiful and condos offer big balconies with Gulf views.
Sterling Resorts - Splash

Sterling Resorts - Splash Rating: 3.5 Pearls

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.
Calypso Resort & Towers

Calypso Resort & Towers Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Calypso Resort and Towers is an enormous double high-rise resort that stretches up from the beach in Panama City. The resort is one of the nicer properties in the area with private beach access, two pools, and a convenient location just one block away from the shopping, dining, and attractions of Pier Park. Each of the 600 rooms are equipped with expected condo amenities such full kitchens with dishwasher, and washer/dryers. The inside of the resort is a bit dated, but the location and beach access cannot be beat. Guests should be aware that decor varies widely between condos, and some visitors report that while oceanfront balconies are appealing, views vary depending on the tower floor.
Emerald Grande at HarborWalk Village

Emerald Grande at HarborWalk Village Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The massive Emerald Grande at HarborWalk Village is a significant presence in the Destin skyline. It's perched above the shopping, dining, and entertainment destination HarborWalk Village, and offers great views of Destin Harbor. Spacious condos have balconies, full kitchens, and laundry facilities -- attracting families looking for space -- but decor can vary widely between units. Perks include a funky-shaped outdoor pool, well-equipped fitness center, and free Wi-Fi, but there is a mandatory resort fee and some guests complain of nightly noise from HarborWalk village.
Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard

Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard lives up to the Marriott brand's reputation for efficiency and convenience. This 174-room hotel offers a lobby bar, mini market, big outdoor pool, and (average) fitness center. Rooms are spacious, with generous bathrooms, although decor is generally dated and bathroom fixtures are showing their age. Despite some guest complaints about these cosmetic features, rooms do have flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and free Wi-Fi. The location at the edge of another resort means guests have easy access to the Sandestin Resort golf courses, day spa, tennis courts, shopping, and more, and Miramar Beach is a short drive away.
