The local Wal-Mart is great for shopping! The resort can recommend restaurants. The grocery store is a local place specializing in seafood -- you can cook your seafood here. We had a lobster tail (pricey at $25, but at the same cost as nice meal at local restaurant). We also had shrimp, which was good.
Overall, it’s a nice place to go for those on a budget. If money is no object, Destin has some nicer places to stay with same beach. Again, if you love the ocean and want to relax on the beach, this is a good place. If you want excitement every minute of the day and have the money to do it, good luck to you.

The resort has a 10pm quiet time rule, which eliminates hearing other guests partying at all hours of the night. They have board games, sports equipment, exercise facilities, roof top patio, spacious units, and a very friendly staff. I would highly recommend this to everyone. I will go back.

The service is exceptional. The General Manager and Front Desk person were thoughtful in ensuring our unit was clean in order to check out from our rental to our exchange. All personnel at the resort were friendly and helpful.Resort Experience:The Landmark Holiday Beach Resort sits on the 27 miles of crystal quartz sand that defines the Gulf of Mexico in Panama City Beach. The resort caters to vacationers who want a fun beach atmosphere with a few activities like daily cookouts and bingo and amenities including an indoor heated pool and spa. The resort consists of 16 stories: the first two floors are one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath townhouses; floors 3 to 15 house two-bedroom, two-bath units, with a few offering a third bedroom. The 16th floor is the clubhouse where activities are held. The indoor pool is in a separate building next to the main building. Parking is in front of the building, with another lot across the street. The resort is on the west end of Panama City Beach.
The units are villas with private balconies, full kitchens with microwave and dishwasher, cable TVs/HBO, and washer/dryer. All sofas have pull-out beds (though very uncomfortable). Master bedrooms contain a king-size bed, while the second bedroom has two full-size beds. Bathrooms are very small. Units are not luxurious, but clean.
The onsite beach offers chaise lounge rentals for $9/day or discounts for weekly rentals. The service is worth the price. Chris, the lifeguard, sets up your double chaise every morning. He comes by to ensure your satisfaction. It is a very nice pampering amenity.
Two-bedroom units have a balcony and sliding glass doors off both the living room and master bedroom. Screens allow you to keep the doors open at night while listening to the sounds of the gulf. The unit offers ample space for a family of six. The view is incredible.
One-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom townhouses are only on the first and second floors. You enter into the hallway from the parking lot into the second floor, where the bedroom and full bathroom are located. A spiral staircase takes you down to the lower level, where the living room, kitchen, half bath and laundry area are. The spiral stairs make unpacking difficult - getting suitcases, groceries, etc. up or down.
The view is very nice from the upstairs bedroom. Windows open for fresh air. The windows are floor to ceiling. There is no balcony.
The first floor also provides a view of the beach, though the deck in front obstructs it a bit. The advantage to having a first-floor unit is that you can walk right out to the beach and leave your beach toys at your door. This is great with small children (bathroom trips, lunch, etc.). The disadvantage to having a first-floor unit is that everyone walking past looks in, limiting privacy. Another negative is that there is no screen on the door, which disallowed leaving it open at night.
Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay here and would return without hesitation.

The building is right at the edge of the beach. There are supermarkets close by. The pool is indoors and immediately adjacent to it is a hot tub and sauna. All the facilities were well maintained. There are activities throughout the week if you wish to be involved.

There is movie rental available with a pretty good selection at the front desk, and staff is very helpful and friendly. There are children's activities throughout the week on the 16th floor, as well as a workout facility and roof top hang out. The pool is an indoor pool with a colorful fish mural. The indoor pool is nice when you have a small child needing to take a break from the sun without feeling left out.
