Fodor's Review

Across the Grand Lagoon from St. Andrews State Park, this expansive property offers quiet away from the madness of Panama City Beach as well as proximity to excellent golf. The tropical-chic feel the resort has been known for has been lessned during a lengthy, ongoing renovation that is focused in the resort's main building. Many rooms do still offer private balconies or patios overlooking the lush grounds and peaceful bay, but wi-fi is unavailable and the restaurants offered are limited. The villas available during renovation are a mere tee-shot away from the hotel when it is open. Check construction status before booking. A meandering boardwalk (which doubles as a jogging trail) leads to a private beach with an open-air bar and water sports. The 12,000-square-foot spa offers massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, and waxing.
