Wonderful accommodations, beautiful location and outstanding customer service! We plan on returning next year. Beach Club will be an awesome addition. It was closed this trip for remodeling but wasn’t that much of an inconvenience. Beach access was simple. The beaches are so incredible😍

The hotel and restaurant staff are very friendly and helpful! The place is pricey I'll admit, but the great view of the beautiful Gulf waters, restaurants, beautiful rooms, great people and more make it worth it all.

About
Description
WaterColor Inn, nestled on nearly 500 acres of sugar-white sand beach, is surrounded by 1,400 linear feet of beachfront and pine forests alongside Western Lake, the state’s second-largest naturally occurring More coastal dune lake. The 60-room Inn offers deluxe accommodations designed by David Rockwell, each overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and donning a pair of Adirondack chairs on the patio (and on the first floor, a private outdoor cabana shower). Perfectly encapsulating the spirit of an intimate beach getaway—while providing the functionality necessary for a family vacation—the freshly redecorated beachfront rooms bring the outdoors in, mere footsteps from the sand. From the soft linens to the spa-inspired toiletries, every well-appointed room offers a relaxing and comfortable seaside oasis. Owned by St. Joe Club & Resorts, this distinctive hotel property affords guests access to a bevy of the private membership club’s amenities. These include private golf and beach club access; complimentary bicycle use; kayak, canoe, pontoon boat, and discounted YOLO board rentals; and more. Less

You have to peer slightly over the dunes out front to see the ocean on the second floor. Still, the view of the ocean is just fine, you just can’t see the beach. I don’t believe the main pool has a water slide. However, we... More
