Our pools are open with poolside furniture spaced appropriately for social distancing. If you already have a reservation with travel dates prior to April 12th, we are happy to welcome you then or you may opt for us to move your reservation to another date or issue a refund.

It’s tough making travel decisions right now. Let’s see if we can make it any easier for you.

First, the closures: per Bay County and the City of Panama City Beach, beaches are closed through 3/26. Per the governor’s executive order all gyms and bars will be closed and all dining options will be take-out only. Now for the better news:

Sun, social distance-style: Our pools are open, and we’ve arranged the poolside chairs as far apart as possible.

Everybody has reservations: We know plans are changing rapidly, so we have relaxed our cancellation policies appropriately. We’re happy to move your reservation dates if that helps. If you decide it’s necessary to cancel your trip completely, we’re waiving penalties.

But you probably still want to come here: There are lots of great take-out options for dining and our sunsets are as amazing as ever.
