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 ...More 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. Less

Hotel's Favourite
Reviewed January 14, 2018

Low key property, clean and well-managed. Our in-room kitchenette perfectly met our needs on our recent trip - compact but well-equipped for preparing simple meals with a full-size refrigerator for stashing snacks and breakfast items. Handy to many nearby bars, shops, and eateries.
