The 10 best hotels in Panama City Beach

Discover the top-rated hotels in Panama City Beach handpicked by local expert Kristin Braswell.

For a coastal vacation that offers a full range of both sea and land activities, look no further than Panama City Beach. Located on 27 miles of palm-fringed, powdery sand beaches along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, the region boasts year-round sunshine that affords access to several outdoor activities for travelers, from water parks to championship golf courses. When it’s time to check in somewhere, my recommendations for the best hotels in Panama City Beach are both group and budget-friendly. Check into an intimate seaside boutique or high-rise hotel with daily entertainment around the clock. You can easily choose between floating the day away in a resort-style lazy river, or dive-in movies by the pool. Best of all, the beach is always just steps away from your room. Here are the 10 best hotels in Panama City Beach to get you started on your sun-filled escape.


Hyatt Place Panama City Beach/Beachfront


15727 Front Beach Road



Hyatt Place Panama City Beach opened its doors in 2022 as the first beachfront Hyatt property on the Gulf Coast. As soon as you step into the bright, expansive lobby overlooking the ocean, you’re instantly transported to a true tropical oasis with coastal chic décor and spacious, modern guest accommodations.
The 11-story hotel features 224 guestrooms and suites with options like an attached kitchenette, bunk beds, pet-friendly rooms, and private balconies that offer panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico. Amenities at this top-rated hotel in Panama City Beach include a resort-style pool, lazy river, and hot tub with private cabanas available for guests.
The property’s signature on-site restaurant, Coconut Charlie’s Beach Bar & Grill, serves up delicious coastal American cuisine, handcrafted cocktails, and ocean views. I kick off my check in here with their blackened grouper sandwich, and it doesn’t disappoint.


Holiday Inn Resort Panama City Beach


11127 Front Beach Road



Known for its array of onsite entertainment options and unparalleled service, the Holiday Inn Resort offers the ultimate family-friendly escape in Panama City Beach. The expansive beachfront property features 340 guest rooms, a lagoon-style pool and cascading waterfall with views of the glistening Gulf Coast, an oversized hot tub, and a 5,000-square-foot lazy river with zero-depth entry and underwater speakers.
In addition to daily entertainment including live music, Polynesian Fire Shows, and Dive-In Movies at the pool, the resort offers many kid-friendly components, such as a 3,500-square-foot enclosed water playground, and arts and crafts programs.
A range of onsite dining options are also available to guests, including The View Restaurant, Chip’s Seafood Grille, The Pizza Parlor, The SeaGlass Bar, and the seasonal SunSet Lounge, perfect for when I’m looking to beat the heat during the summer months with sunset views and tropical drinks.


Casa Loma Inn


13615 Front Beach Road



Embodying the kitschy charm of old Florida, Casa Loma is one of my favorite boutique hotels in Panama City Beach. From the turquoise-colored room balconies you can marvel the lush tropical surroundings and an expansive Gulf-front pool in a convenient central location on Front Beach Road, just a short 5-minute drive from Pier Park and family-friendly attractions.
A variety of accommodation options are available, from standard rooms with a kitchen to two-bedroom suites. The latter can sleep up to seven guests and feature a spacious layout with one bedroom offering two queen beds, a second bedroom with a king bed, and a fully equipped kitchen.
Every guest room at Casa Loma is positioned on the beach, providing direct access to a view that hopefully you will love as much as I do.
