This place checked all my boxes.. full size fridge, coffee maker, microwave, outdoor bar and grill, live music and for extras a lazy river and movies every night. The water was a few steps away and the staff was excellent.. everyone we came in contact with was nice and they stay on top of cleaning.. like constantly cleaning. The breakfast has lots of options, something for everyone.. Super enjoyable stay. We will be back!

This hotel was clean and had a great setup. I liked that they had gates to enter the pool area, just wish they’d add one to head to the beach area. The continental breakfast was definitely one of the best I’ve ever had. My only complaint was I asked for my room to be vacuumed three times and it wasn’t. I asked again the next day and was told due to Covid they do not usually come in a room, but would to vacuum. Even after requesting four times, they never showed up. Poor communication and very frustrating.

Location of hotel is nice but our room was not clean. We left a day early due to the room conditions. The room was not clean although it looked clean. The air conditioning leaked and left a daily puddle of slippery water and the rugs near the bed had stains and smelled awful. The wood in the bunk bed corner smelled moldy. Most of the staff was nice except Deloris at the pool bar was rude and yelling at the guests. I will definitely go back to PCB but will never stay here again.

Only thing was bad was the wait for the elevators

Pool

There was blood on my friend’s bed covers and sheets when we pulled them back . When we called the front desk they did not apologize, offer percentage off and we did not receive new covers til the next day. We loved the luxury of having of having the beach right out front , being close to great food spots and pier park ! Please Encourage the house keepers to do a better job and make sure the rooms are kept up ,considering we still are dealing with Covid . Overall we had a nice time .

Love this place, the staff is excellent. The heated pool & hottub was a great added bonus.

No disclosure on parking fee. Other than that. LOVE this hotel. Staff, room property is great. Even includes full breakfast.

The staff was friendly and professional. The property was updated and well maintained. Walking distance to several restaurants. Beautiful beachfront pool area.

I loved the hotel and the rooms were very nice. They were large enough for a family. We had a gulf view room. The only issue I had was even though the rooms looked clean the floors were not. The wood like tile was pretty and beachy but if you walked on them barefoot the bottom of your feet would be black. Also the small part of carpet by the bed smelled moldy. You would smell it when you were laying in bed.

Amazing! Family of 5 fit comfortably in the double queen and twin bunk. Staff was helpful. Excellent beach access and pools were very clean. Pool towels always available. Will definitely stay here again. I wish we didn’t have to pay parking in addition to room but it was essy access to the deck from our room.

Great place to stay. Clean rooms and great breakfast

I loved the hotel all in all. The staff was very friendly and was very helpful at all times. It was a great location and the pools were always clean. 10/10!! Will definitely be staying here again.

Very clean, friendly staff and excellent amenities. We will definitely return and recommend this hotel.

This property is on the beach! They have a lazy river as well as a pool and hot tub. The balconies give a beautiful Gulf view as well as pool view. You can hear the waves crashing from your room. The room decor is updated and modern. Very clean, full size fridge, and cute bunk beds with their own tv. Huge bathroom!

AWESOME OUR SECOND STAY VERY NICE AND CLEAN STAFF VERY HELPFUL

We loved the view from our corner balcony suite. The lazy river pool is remarkable. All the staff was accommodating to me and my disability. Bartenders were excellent. A special thanks to bartender Mace, we loved his conversations, he was very nice and lots of information on the area. Me & My BFF will consider coming back for another Girls Trip!! Thanks Mace, Forever your friends, T(Kansas)&T(Missouri) :-)

Hello Josey, We are very thankful for your review of your most recent stay. Being a beach hotel the rooms can become damp if the doors are left open from the high levels of humidity. Thank you for letting us know as we will be sure to notify our team. The only way to improve is to hear from our guests! We hope to have you join us again soon! See you at the beach! Heather R
