Panama City Beach is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, in the northern “pan handle” of Florida. The city, which is a separate municipality from Panama City, is famous for “The World’s Most Beautiful Beaches”, due to the unique sugar-white soft sand.
Panama City Beach offers visitors great shopping, fabulous restaurants and a long list of other services, in addition to being a terrific place to get away from the Canadian Winter.
To better meet our customers demands and to be more cost efficient, we have decided to operate the coaches on an every other week basis. This means that we will only be offering the 17 or 31 day holidays, as people generally found the one week holiday to be too short. Also, all of the activities will now be planned on a two week rotation versus one, meaning that we can offer a little more variety! We are pleased to be offering 3 Resort Condominiums to choose from—The Grand Panama Resort, an incredible 4 star modern resort; Laketown Wharf Resort, a modern 4 star resort, with incredible amenities OR the Summit Resort, a more traditional Condominium, with a 3 star rating. Prices at the Summit Resort start at $1,499.00 for a 17 day holiday including motor coach transportation to and from Florida; one night of accommodation enroute; two weeks in a fully furnished one bedroom condo on the beach; and the services of on site Hanover Holidays staff and motor coach. The same package at the Grand Panama Resort start at $1,619.00 per person, and you can choose any length of stay up to 2 ½ months.
A lot of clients rebook these packages year after year, so you will want to make your reservation early!!
