#4 of 56 hotels in Panama City Beach
Osprey on the Gulf is a destination for family fun in the heart of Panama City Beach! Set on the coastline, we like to think we’re more like your family’s beach home than a hotel. You can spend the day playing beach volleyball, visit the children’s playground, jump into our heated pools, or try your hand at ping pong. After a restful night, you’ll awake to panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico from your private balcony. While we’re close to all the area’s top attractions, there’s no need to leave the grounds for entertainment -- we have planned events each week! Founded in 1987, we have a strong history of family values that inspire us each day, and we hope to have the privilege of your stay.

Just returned from our 12th stay at the Osprey last week. I must say there is no place that I have stayed any better. The rooms are clean, every room has a great view of the gulf, the staff is top notch and always attentive. Ramil is the awesome. Owners on site daily and are some of the friendliest people you will meet. When you stay, hit up the tiki bar and get a drink from Nathan or Miss Lisa, both are a good time. All in all it's just a great place and you won't be disappointed with your stay. I'll be back at the end of July and can't wait.

We booked from Hotels.com and we, of course went by the description listed of the hotel. It stated there was a restaurant, bar/lounge on the premises as well as the hotel having beach umbrellas. No restaurant on site. There was a Tiki bar that was open from 11am to 6pm and there were no umbrellas for the beach. You could rent chairs and umbrellas from another person for $35.00 a day. When we complained tot he hotel, we were told that it Hotels.com's fault. They listed the amenities incorrectly. I don't understand that, because someone had to give Hotels. com the information. Anyway, neither the hotel or Hotels.com did anything about any of our complaints so we do not recommend this hotel and we will no longer be booking through Hotrels.com

Background on my trip: I’m 25 and my fiancé is 27 so if you’re in the same financial and life timeline then this is the hotel for you. The price is good and it is right on the beach. There is a bar/food place downstairs (we did not eat or drink there but it was a cool amenity). The hotel room was very nice and we had a roomy balcony. The only downfalls I can note were — 1) construction right next to hotel but it didn’t bother us. 2) there was a fight in one of the hotel room close to the beach entry but the hotel staff was on scene quickly to call the police. I feel like the hotel couldn’t do anything about those items.

Response from Gilmore Reservations, Owner at Osprey on the Gulf
Responded 22 Mar 2021
We're sad to hear you have this impression of our resort. We do have our policies listed on our website. Our team always encourages our guests to read these over before booking. A reservation must be canceled more than two weeks prior to arrival for a deposit refund. It seems you were out of the two-week window. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our team so we can gain more insight into your stay.

The evening staff is rude. Catered to bikers and ignored the needs of regular guests. If I could have got a refund for the rest of our stay I would have and moved to another condominium unfortunately we couldn't do that without losing money. I will never stay there again.
