U.S. News Review

Sitting on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, Santa Rosa Beach's Watercolor Inn & Resort will especially appeal to families. It has good though not great room rates to facilitate group travel, plus lots of amenities for keeping kids busy, like complimentary bikes, kayaks, and canoes, access to six resort pools, a seasonal family movie night and even a kid's day camp. However, the Gathering Spot and Sushi Bar restaurant is purely for romance thanks to an atmospheric fire pit in the evenings. For a delicious meal of fresh seafood with excellent ocean views, sit down to dinner at Fish out of Water. Recent guests appreciate the intimate feel to this resort, which only has 60 (recently redesigned) rooms, and say that the limited number of accommodations means that you can bask in more personal attention from the hospitality staff. Accommodations here feature a variety of creature comforts, including iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs and minifridges. And if you need to get some work done, you'll find ample work spaces in the rooms, as well as high-speed Internet access. The Watercolor Inn & Resort can be found on Goldenrod Circle.
