We stayed here for a few nights before our vacation rental was ready and loved every second of it! The resort grounds are beautiful and unique and our room (on the second floor overlooking the pool with a view of the ocean) was large and very well decorated in a southern cottage-y style. The higher up your room is, the...

The Watercolor Inn is a 5 Star resort in Santa Rosa Beach Fl. Very nice room. TV service as out for 2 days but partly restored. There is a resort fee that gives you bikes and canoes. However, if you want an umbrella and 2 chairs on the beach watch out. Front row chairs are $65 a day for 2...

He is a WW2 ,Korea, and Vietnam veteran and is under Hospice care. I wanted to show him just how much I honor him and thought what better way than to go ALL OUT on...

What a wonderful place! The room was fantastic. From the decor, to the ample storage space, to the soft and feathery bed...we fell in love! And don't get me started with the amazing view and the humongous shower. A view FROM the shower! We could have stayed in the room and all it's coziness, since the weather was pretty cold....

Stayed for three days. Had a 4th floor room which has a great view of the beach. Friendly and helpful staff. The adult pool was quiet and restful place to be. The beaches by the hotel are incredible. Had a great breakfast in the gathering spot every morning. The main restaurant on the property was not open while we were...
