Water Color Inn was beautiful. Easy access to pools and beach. 3rd floor room had amazing view of the ocean and beach. Friendly, helpful staff. Cookies in the evening were a hit along with bottled water and items from the Treat Suite. We used the bikes every day that were included. Only negatives were having to pay extra for beach chairs/setup (which we did not do) and the chairs were so close together it was challenging getting to the water. It was nice to have a beach bag to use all week but unfortunate to find out it was extra at the end of the week (we did not purchase it). Overall, we felt very pampered and had a great vacation.

Great location! Valet and front desk folks were awesome as were the staff in the spa. FOOW restaurant is average with poor management. Beach staff were great and definitely worth renting beach chairs. It would be nice to have more variety of restaurants in the general vicinity.

My wife and I had to find a place to go quickly when we realized she had vacation days she needed to use before the end of March, 2021. Reservation process was seamless and so easy. Got a King room on the 4th floor (I recommend as you have a full panoramic ocean view). Rooms have plenty of room, bed very comfortable. All staff was amazing and helpful. We did the Spa 3 times and loved it. While the Spa is smaller than usual, the staff and therapists were awesome! Highly recommend. Food at Fish Out of Water was very good and we did not have a bad meal. Room service also excellent and timely. Water Color is also within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants, including Seaside (so you don't have to deal with traffic). Expect crowds at this time of year--just be ready. But we just did our own thing and they did not bother us. Would go again!

Watercolor Inn and its staff alway provides a convenient and enjoyable way to experience the Beach. This is the ski in ski out version of a beach experience. Beautiful accommodations that I highly recommend.

The Watercolor Inn is a very nice place to stay. Going in March they double their prices - and they aren't a $600/night hotel by any one's criteria. They have great access to the beach and bars everywhere. However the staff wasn't up to the influx of people and service was poor. Probably for desperate parents during a pandemic this would be a safe place to take your teenagers. We have another place we like in the Destin area but wanted to check out Seaside and Rosemary beach. Watercolor's location is right on top of all of that. Would I stay there again? Probably not.
