Stayed here for a business trip during non-spring break months, and it was just ok. I really wasn't expecting much because it is a party town and Panama City Beach is known for hearty, young partiers. My room was clean, and the views were AMAZING. Loved being on an upper floor to have views of the beach and ocean, and...

This resort is located on a beautiful beach and also has a great pool area. The room was wonderful and had a fantastic view of the beach. Everything in the room was very clean, including the bathrooms. There also was a continental breakfast included. I would highly recommend Beachcomber by the Sea to anyone planning a visit to Panama City...

We have stayed here 3-4 times a year for the last several years. The rooms are always clean and the staff goes out of their way to accommodate us. They are always friendly and seem to take pride in keeping this place nice.. It is much smaller than the other hotels on the beach but the rooms are roomy and...

I have been in August in this hotel. The room was quite big, practically two rooms (we were 5 people), clena and with good air conditioning system. The balcony was just in face of the beach. The swimming pool was not very large but again clean considering the number of people around it. The beach was just in front of...

We extended our vacation in PCB for one more night and stayed here. It was a joke.....our room was so small, your left leg touched the bed while you walked around the room. The girl at the front desk was very rude and unprofessional. There was a older couple in front of that was shorted a night by the hotel...

We stayed at Beachcomber for 2 nights and loved it. We had 6 people in our group and always have difficulties with other hotels because there are "too many people". This hotel and staff had no problem accommodating all of us. Our room was comfortable for the amount of people in there. It consisted of a room with two full...
