Staying in a Resort can help you plan your budget much easier, and avoid coming home from your vacation to huge unexpected credit card bills.
When you stay somewhere without any activities and entertainment built into the price, you will find that you have to seek entertainment elsewhere each day.
That means eating out, more gas costs, and the price of admission to local attractions.
Staying in a Resort with on-site restaurants and suites with kitchens (so you can prepare your own meals) as well as planned family games and contests means you can keep everyone entertained right there, without having to leave. In turn, this gives you more time to relax and actually enjoy your vacation - meaning you get more true vacation time.
The value for money you get by staying in a Resort makes it a very appealing concept. See how much there is to do at the Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort to get more of an idea...
Panama City Beach Resorts offer a more complete vacation experience than by staying in a hotel alone.
Many Hotels in Panama City Beach offer a room to sleep in, but little else.
A vacation experience in a Resort is more complete. Guests staying in a Resort can expect access to more amenities and activities, all included in the price of their stay. These can include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, hot tubs, waterslides, mini golf, a lazy river ride etc.
There aren't many Resorts in Panama City Beach that offer a complete family-friendly experience that includes all this with the price of the room. The Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort does.
