Hotel at a Glance: Emerald Beach Resort

A white-sand beach meets the Gulf of Mexico just footsteps from your door at Emerald Beach Resort—you could walk barefoot from your room to the ocean. The shore provides a quiet place for families to kick back between visits to ZooWorld, a family-friendly attraction with lions, tigers, and 200 other exotic animals, just a short drive away.

  • As of March 19, 2020 all bars, concession stands, hot tubs, game rooms, arcade rooms, and fitness centers are temporarily closed
  • Gulf views can be enjoyed from the balconies of one- and two-bedroom condos, which feature full kitchens and separate living areas.
  • Beat the heat in one of two pools, including one along the beach and one with a special children’s area.
  • Grab a drink at the poolside tiki bar.
  • Why “emerald” beach resort? The name of the hotel references the emerald-green color of the gulf.

Panama City Beach, Florida: Sugar-White Beaches and Scuba-Diving Spots

Panama City Beach’s slogan—“The World’s Most Beautiful Beaches”—may seem boastful. But TripAdvisor helped back up this claim in 2013, naming the local St. Andrews State Park as having 1 of the top 25 beaches in the United States. The park also has two fishing piers, a jetty, and a boat ramp, plus nature trails for bird watching. Elsewhere in town, you can arrange a scuba-diving trip to explore the area’s dozens of natural and artificial reefs.

There are numerous amusement parks along the 20-plus miles of shoreline. Many of the popular seafood restaurants and bars here overlook the Gulf of Mexico.

If you’re looking to escape the crowds, take the ferry to Shell Island, an uninhabited, 7-mile-long barrier island. On the ride over, you might see some of the bottlenose dolphins that frequent these warm waters. Once there, you can soak in the sun on the empty beaches and go snorkeling. It’s also worth it to visit the nature preserve at Conservation Park, which has 24 miles of trails. One 11-mile trek goes past wooden boardwalks and wetlands; keep your eyes peeled and you might see woodpeckers in the trees and alligators lurking beside

Overall the stay at Emerald Beach Resort was an average to slightly below average experience. The view from the 19th floor balcony were excellent; however, encountered about a dozen issues: room was directly across from elevators and with the floor plan having the bedroom next to the entry door and the elevators sound like jets flying by all night; had to troubleshoot and resolve TV/cable connection issues and had very limited channels on the bedroom tv because they did not have a cable box in that room; toaster broken; no paper towels; burned out light bulbs in kitchen; very limited kitchen items and all old/worn; and other issues. Could be a much nicer building and condos but people are not reinvesting to update and add little touches to make it special. I wouldn't stay here again.
