You’re already off to a great start… You’re planning a Spring Break in Panama City Beach, FL. aka the “Spring Break Capital of the World!”
You’re going to have a good time no matter what – but if you can just find the PERFECT Hotel, you’ll turn that good time into a memorable, can’t-wait-for-next-year-to-do-it-again GREAT time!
Here’s some tips on what you should look for when you’re deciding where to stay…
It’s a classic rookie mistake not making sure your hotel is located directly on the beach.
Believe us, it gets old when you have to cross a busy road each time you want to hang out on the beach every day.
It’s way more convenient to stroll there and back from your room because your hotel is right on the sand.
Why settle for somewhere that ONLY has a limited room layout that works for 2-4 people?
Your group probably doesn’t have exactly that number, so do you pay for more room than you need, and overpay? There’s got to be a better solution than that, right?
There is. Some places, like for example, the Sandpiper Beacon, have hotel rooms, suites, condos, townhouses, and private villas that sleep anywhere from 1 person up to groups of 10.
If you’re group is bigger, split up, and book a couple rooms. The point is – it’s like buying in bulk…
If you can get a bigger group together, and rent a 10 person condo, not only is it way more fun, but you also get to split the cost and actually SAVE money!
Now this is going to be harder to find, but you can’t argue with the facts…
If your hotel also had an onsite bar/club that was one of the hottest spots on the beach during Spring Break – and as a guest, you got to party there for free every single night… that wouldn’t suck, right?
If you can find a Hotel that brings thousands of people to party, literally on your doorstep, day and night, all week long – you’ve found a keeper!
There’s only ONE hotel on Panama City Beach with an on-site club, you might have heard of the World Famous Tiki Bar… (Often imitated, but the real version is always better than the bootleg copy!)
Not all hotels in Panama City Beach are created equally.
It won’t take you long to figure out the handful of places that have a reputation for being an AWESOME Spring Break venue each year.
If you’re gonna do it right, and you do want to do it right, then stay somewhere that KNOWS how to throw a party, has an awesome atmosphere, and let’s you do your thing.
Yep, you might have learned this the hard way, but lots of places seem to think that Under 25 = Damage.
A lot of places to stay have strict policies where they just won’t rent to groups if even one person is Under 25.
The really great Spring Break hotels realize that’s just crazy – and the truly epic ones will even rent to 18+ (See http://www.springbreakfunplace.com/where-to-stay)
