COVID-19 Update

We are happy to accept reservations in all of our properties without restrictions. Our areas are open for business and being very respectful of social distancing and increased cleaning standards. The beaches are open in the counties we serve and our local officials have made no indication of closing the beaches.

Some of our areas may have mandates for masks to be worn inside businesses while you are here on vacation. We highly recommend the use of masks to help ease the spread of COVID-19.

Alabama has mandated a mask ordinance effective from 5 PM on July 16, 2020, until 5 PM on December 11, 2020. Masks or face coverings must be worn when you are within six feet of a person from another household in all indoor spaces open to the general public, a vehicle operated by a transportation service (including buses, taxis, Lyft, and Uber), or outdoor public spaces where 10 or more people are gathered.

Panama City Beach has mandated a mask ordinance effective at 5 PM on July 27, 2020. Masks are mandated for customers at indoor businesses including but not limited to: restaurants, bars, retail, indoor amusements, hotel lobbies, and elevators.
