We realize that you have a lot of choice when it comes to finding a place to stay in Panama City Beach. You want to find somewhere that checks all the right boxes... Location, price, quality, amenities, service etc. Here is why we think you'll love us...
A clean, well-maintained and comfortable room is just the start. We have rooms with kitchens, suites, condos, villas and beach houses that sleep up to ten people (customizable configurations and views).

You get complete access to over 1,000ft of private and pristine crystal-white sandy beach when you stay here. Walk straight out of your room and onto the beach, with no busy roads to cross. Click Here to see a map of the Resort.
Planned family games and contests and seasonal live shows means nobody will be getting bored here. Scavenger hunts, craft hour, X-Box contests, and Polynesian Fire Dancing Shows are just the start...
You don't have to do our activities to have fun. Multiple indoor & outdoor swimming pools, an indoor lazy river ride, waterslides and mini golf are just some of the ways you can play when you stay!
We have guest services, housekeeping and maintenance staff on-hand around the clock, 365 days per year to make sure you always have everything you need during your stay.
The setting of the sun marks the beginning of this incredible journey through the islands of Polynesia! Our dancers also perform at Universal Orlando Resorts, and the symbolic Fire Dance is an amazing spectacle! Free to all registered guests. Please note:This is a seasonal show not always scheduled year-round.
You don't have to put your vacation on hold and leave the Resort when you are hungry. That's because we have two great places to eat right here, as well as a very cool Ice Cream Shop!
On-Site Places To Eat
The Wild Rapids water slide offers even more splashing fun! Perfect for the smaller / younger family members in the group, this is a great water slide, and even has a little twist at the end!
Enjoy the peace of mind knowing that your youngest ones are safe and secure.
The Kiddie Pool is surrounded by reclining chairs and tables so you can relax while they play. Fun & safe!
Take a break from the heat of the sun and let the kids come and make a splash riding the indoor slide. Perfect for the smaller Sandpiper guests... Located right next to the indoor Lazy River ride.
Having WiFi is almost as important as a swimming pool! We don't think you should have to pay extra for it though. You have our permission to post selfies on the beach all day long, and make all your friends jealous!
Whether you need to look up directions, print off coupons/tickets for an attraction, or your phone has died and you want to get online... Our high-speed computers in the lobby are here for you 24/7.
Nothing is better at helping you cool off on a hot sunny day at the beach than one (better make that two) scoops of delicious hand-made ice cream! Or try one of our awesome milkshakes made by hand with your choice of ice cream flavors! Frozen Yogurt & Sorbet also available.
Ice Cream Shop
Test your skill, and see who's the family champion with a fun game of shuffleboard on the back deck. Plus you get incredible views of the Beach as you play! You'll find everything you need to play for free in the Lobby.

Let the kids experience authentic French Polynesia, Hawaii, Samoa and New Zealand style Hula, and learn how it's done... Our friendly native dancers provide grass skirts and live background music on the beachside stage in the Tiki Bar. A Seasonal activity.
The Foam Parties at the Sandpiper Beacon are an exhilarating way to flop around in foam right next to the beach! Join us in the huge inflatable foam pit! Our foam is non-toxic, hypo-allergenic and harmless to clothes.
There's no better way to enjoy your quality family time at the beach than roasting S'mores around a campfire. Whether you're 5 or 50 you'll LOVE our Sunset S'mores Family Packs! Gather around the beach fire pit at sunset, we've got your family pack which includes everything you need!
The older East-End of Panama City Beach is far more congested with traffic, and newer developments like Pier Park and the Airport are all taking place towards the West. The Sandpiper Beacon is the closest beachfront hotel to the Airport, and just over a mile west of Pier Park, making it a short-drive to all the action, but separate enough to be calm.
We always strive to provide you with the best Panama City Beach vacation experience we can. Whether that means adding new activities and entertainment, offering free pool towels, or renovating the property and rooms. Each and every year, we reinvest back into the property to make sure your stay is always better than the last.
