Carillon Beach Resort Inn offers 7 private beach access points and 4 swimming pools. There are also 2 hot tub-jacuzzi's, 2 tennis courts, salon and spa, restaurants, gift shop, health and fitness facility to enjoy during your stay.
There is a beautiful balcony to have morning coffee and reflect upon the tranquil lake and ocean view.
We are a young married couple who love the beach and spending time with family and making lasting memories!
This property is nestled in a quaint community that is perfect for a family getaway. We enjoy Carillon because of the village like feel that is present and also because its convenient to restaurants and shopping.
We love this property because of the beautiful view from the balcony, the beautiful amenities and the modern accessories of the condo.
Overall, this is a nice place to stay given the good value. But, the price also reflects the reality that it is a 3* place. The unit has a hotel-room feel which felt small to us for a full-week stay. If we were staying less than a week or without children that would be less of a concern. Limited privacy given the layout of the unit (again, more like a hotel room than a condo).
Very nice pool and also a very nice grill area. Walking to good restaurants is extremely easy and the walk to the beach is reasonable (approx. 5 minutes walking).
Just a note that there is no washer/dryer in the unit itself. There is a shared laundry room for the inn but it can get full quickly (and, it looked like even housekeeping used the common washers and dryers).
Overall, a reasonable value. Would consider a return for a shorter stay or a couples trip without children.
Pros - We love Carillon. This is our 2nd visit to Carillon, but only the first time staying in this Condo.
It's laid out well. It has a semi/full kitchen. King bed is on the left as soon as you walk in the door.
There is no door on the bedroom so it's sort of set up like a hotel suite. There is no sink in the bathroom, but it's in the "hallway". No big deal, but it was a little bit strange to have to walk around the corner to the sink.
Good size living room with a pull out sleeper sofa. It's really a cute condo!
The balcony has a beautiful view over the pond/lake. Many people use the lake for paddle boarding, paddle boating, canoeing, etc.
I didn't see any alligators in the pond, but did see a few turtles.
Bring your bikes because it's about 1/4 mile from the beach and you can't drive onto the housing part of the property and having rented through VRBO instead of the Inn we didn't have access to the golf cart shuttle. We knew this so we were prepared.
The pool is really pretty with 2 hot tubs. The pool also overlooks the pond/lake.
Be sure to visit the general store "downtown". I loved that store. Cute t-shirts and other souvenirs or if you forgot something they have it!
Cons (take it with a grain of salt) - Carpet could use updating. It was a little dirty, but not a big deal.
Housekeeping wasn't as thorough as I would have liked. The toilet wasn't cleaned properly, There were long black hairs in the refrigerator. There was cigarette ashes on the patio. These weren't deal breakers and this isn't the owners fault. We had the same issue the first time we stayed at Carillon in one of the houses (the house wasn't learned thoroughly). It just seems like housekeeping gets in too big of a hurry.
There were a couple of rude people at the pool area. One family brought their dog into the pool area and another person brought a boom box and started playing loud music. This should be addressed by management.
We would stay here again for sure because we love Carillon. The "cons" that I mentioned were very minor nuisances and I tend to be a perfectionist.
The beach is absolutely beautiful and uncrowded and the water is so clear on some days.
The condo is nice and very comfortable for two adults. The check-in was good, Resort quest employees are very professional. The only negative about the condo is the carpet. The carpet needs to go. Not in the best condition and tile would look much better and cleaner. The kitchen has all that we needed, and the bed was very comfortable.
Everything was great! The beach was only five minutes away. The pool and jacuzzi was nice. Shopping was close by. Everything we needed was on that strip no turns or loops. We enjoyed our stay here and we will be back.
We truly loved our visit at the Carillon Beach Resort at Laguna Beach, FL. The peaceful view from the balcony which overlooks the beautiful lake was exactly what we needed. The ocean is also visible in the distance. The condo itself was perfect and beautifully furnished. We loved all three pools and the short walk to such a gorgeous beach. We loved eating breakfast at the little cafe each morning near the fountain. We really hope to return to this condo in the fall! Our trip was just fabulous! Thanks, Ashley- for helping us to register for our stay!
Really nice place away from the madness in PCB. Pools were great & the short golf cart ride to beach access was great. Being on that end of Panama City made the beach feel very private & relaxing.
Pier Park is 1.1 million square foot of retail shopping only 7 miles away from Carillon Beach Inn. It has been a hub of activity since its grand opening in February 2008. From big brand anchors to smaller mom-and-pop shops, Pier Park is the place to go! To View a list of stores.
