Positive Reviews

Stunning Views

If you like to look out to a stunning backdrop, the Watercolor Inn & Resort is the place to stay. Guests have consistently raved about the best views of the Gulf and watching the sunset from their balconies. Others recommend booking one of the top floor rooms just for the views.

Sweet Touches

Thoughtful gestures such as fresh baked cookies during nightly turndown service and hand-written notes seem to be a hit with traveleres staying here.

Bike Rentals Are a Blast

The stunning scenery surrounding the inn is certainly worth exploring, and the complimentary bike rentals make it easy for to do so. On several occasions, guests have noted how much they enjoyed having the bikes to ride around the beautiful area.

Negative Reviews

Crowded Pool Area

The Watercolor Inn & Resort has several swimming pools throughout its property. While the adult pool tends to be more quiet, some guests have noticed crowding and noise levels can be an issue at the family pool especially during the busy season.

Mold Spotting

While it seems to be an isolated incident, mold residue has been spotted in the bathrooms. However, most people who have stayed here have said that their rooms/bathrooms were very clean.

Hard to Get a Table

During high season, the restaurants can get busy so booking a table at a preferred time can sometimes be a challenge. However, guests could always plan ahead and make their reservations earlier rather than later to get their seating choice.
