The Accommodations

Sheraton Bay Point Resort

When I received word that I was visiting Panama City Beach, Florida, I was thrilled to say the least. Besides loving “The Sunshine State,” I have always heard of "The World's Most Beautiful Beaches" along the panhandle and there is no denying that the sayings are true. During my visit, I was lucky enough to stay at the only AAA Four Diamond Rated resort in Panama City Beach. Known as a Florida vacation destination for generations of memories, the property was built in the 1980s and reopened as Sheraton Bay Point Resort in 2017 after an impressive $30 million-dollar renovation and rebranding.

Throw in the amazing staff; this resort is almost heaven on earth. I arrived to be greeted by the doorman Adam who went over and beyond to ensure my arrival was terrific. Once I made it to the front desk, the agent Michael made sure I was well informed about all of the amenities that the resort has to offer. From the natural beauty of the property, the modern new design, distinctive resort dining options, more than 60,000 sq. ft. of group space, and full service spa; it was clear upon arrival why Sheraton Bay Point Resort is a Florida visiting guest favorite.

No bragging here, but add the Nicklaus Design golf course, a private bay beach (which I loved), three pools, direct boat access to Shell Island, water sports and tennis, the Sheraton Bay Point Resort literally is an oasis!

It is very easy to spend your day at the beach from sun up to down (literally) but somewhere in between, you’ve got to grab breakfast, lunch, and dinner right?

Whether you are hungry for some Southern-style pulled pork or a juicy, tender steak, solo or surf-n-turf, some of the best restaurants in Panama City Beach specialize in cuisine from around the world.
