Sheraton Panama City Beach Golf & Spa Resort

Treat Yourself to a Beach Getaway with Accommodations Designed to Spoil the Whole Family

4114 Jan Cooley Dr | Panama City Beach | marriott.com/sheraton-panama-city-beach

There are two types of things that spring to mind when you think of a 5 star resort or hotel. On one hand some resorts are classic and timeless. And their majestic, if somewhat antiquated aesthetic, gives off a presence of the finer things in life as imagined by somebody in the early 1900s.

The other type of five star resort or hotel is one that is brand new and state of the art. It offers you the finer things in life by the standards we have set in the 21st Century. And that is exactly what you will find at Sheraton Panama City Beach Golf & Spa Resort. The entire resort has been recently renovated so you can be one of the first people to enjoy all the benefits of what the resort has to offer.  You can enjoy a private beach with an onsite restaurant. The beach also happens to feature the option to rent jet skis, pontoon boats, kayaks, and paddleboards.

And when you are done with the beach you can enjoy one of two outdoor (heated) swimming pools. (Why you need to heat a pool in Florida is beyond me, but it certainly screams luxury. And if you are sick of the water after the beach and want to do something on dry land, forget the pools and enjoy two beautiful full 18 hole golf courses. 

That’s right you can play 36 rounds of gold and never shoot the same round twice. And if you are looking for a more rigorous outdoor event the Sheraton Panama City Beach Golf & Spa Resort also features 5 full tennis courts that you can enjoy at your leisure. And if you get all sore and tired from your fun in the sun the resort also features a full service spa to really help you take the edge off and unwind. 

“Great place to stay near shell island. Great breakfast with outstanding service at the restaurant. Hotel stay was nice and anything that was wrong was properly fixed. Good staff and friendly place to stay. Highly recommended” - Yelp Review

Unfortunately Sheraton Panama City Beach Golf & Spa Resort isn’t one of the 5 Star Hotels & Resorts in Panama City Beach participating with GiftYa just yet, but check back soon cause they might be any day now.

One of the things that takes a fantastic hotel or resort up to five star quality isn’t even the hotel or resort itself, but the location it is located in. Would you rather stay in a fantastic hotel in the middle of nowhere, or one that’s right by all kinds of shopping and dining? I mean it’s the later option pretty obviously I would say. And that’s what you’ll get at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Panama City Beach.

On top of the fantastic location there is also an on site store where you can stock up on any essentials you might have missed. And to cap everything off, the resort even features heated swimming pools and hot tubs. Maybe you’ll have enough salt water for one day but still want to soak and relax. Well that’s where the Hampton Inn has you covered. 

“Amazing staff and hotel. Every time I walk through the lobby I'm greeted with a smile. This place is amazing. I travel a lot for work and I've stayed at a lot of Hampton Inn properties.
