Most visitors to Panama City Beach come for the sparkling white sands and emerald green waters. The Legacy by the Sea delivers plenty of prime beach frontage. Every room has a private balcony with Gulf views perfect for savoring the sunset or just listening to the ebb and flow of the tides.

Past guests on TripAdvisor say it’s well worth it to upgrade to a larger room for the extra space and the mini-kitchens. You can stock up on vacation essentials like snacks, light bites and drinks at the Wal-Mart just a three-minute car ride up the street. Or buy a couple of beach towels and chairs to use during your stay, as the hotel doesn’t supply these items.

With brand-name hotels sprouting up like mushrooms along the coastline, the Legacy by the Sea is a throwback to a time when hotels weren’t quite so cookie cutter. Part of a family of five Panama Beach hotels, the Legacy by the Sea has comfort, convenience and its own blend of local charm and hospitality.

Although the décor here is dated and a bit worn, the amazing ocean views, friendly hotel staff and close proximity to area attractions may make up for it.

Across the street is Gulf World Marine Park, a lush aquatic learning center with dolphin experiences and shark feedings. For a more wet than wild time, drive three minutes to Shipwreck Island Water Park. On dry land, the eating, shopping and entertainment of Pier Park shopping mall is just eight minutes north of the hotel.
