Just got back from staying at Sandpiper Beacon. If you have kids, this is the place to be. So much for them to do. I had none with me on this trip, but could see everything that was there for kids. The rooms are dated with the exception of the TV, but very clean. The whole property was very clean...

Its older but it is very nice. They will let you look at the room before you check in. I suggest the beach front room. We were in room 212. You get the pool and beach view. The people who work there are very friendly. Its a family place so kids are running everywhere. Fun fun fun

Best vacation that we've had in years. The staff bent over backwards to help make our stay the best ever beach getaway. The hotel was very busy but if you needed anything it was instantly taken care of. For such a tough environment to keep clean, they did a great job. We will definately be back soon.

First of all these people need to stop complaining so much. I have stayed in 5 star hotels before and knew this wasn't one before we stayed. We have friends that have stayed here and they recommended it to us. The room was an average motel size, on the third floor with a nice beachfront view. We only paid for...

My family has been to this particular resort before, so they recommended it to me and my girlfriend when we wanted to take a trip to Panama City beach this August. When we arrived to our room, we realized that our room was very small. We opted not to pay a premium to have a view of the ocean. Though...

The drain in the bathtub was horribly slow. The daily housekeeping was poor considering this is a beach location. The room was given no attention except bed making. We had to go to desk each day for towels. Beach towels were only available until 5pm. Rooms and resort old but maintained, great value.

First of all the staff was very rude to my family and friends on several occasions. The food was pitiful to put it lightly and for what little space we had in our room, the entire place is extremely overpriced. There are a lot of options when it comes to hotels and condos in Panama City Beach and I will...

Hey TheDude. Thanks for taking the time to leave your review. We're sorry that you were treated rudely by our staff. We go out of our way to be very friendly and polite to all our guests at all times, so that really disappoints us to read. We do have much larger rooms and suites that we would have gladly...

This was our second stay at the Sandpiper and we were just as pleased as the first time. Very friendly staff, and a great location right on the beach. Lots of activities, especially if you have kids with you. We loved our stay!

My family and I have been going to the Sandpiper Beacon yearly for over 15 years. Although it has been dated sometimes in the past, they seem to be getting things updated. The one negative is that the WIFI was and always has been horrible in the rooms, my family had to use their own ATT HotSpot to access the...
