Fantastic location
We decided to have a short break away from home and chose Pensicola - mainly because of being at the beach but also because of the connection to the film 'El Cid' - husband is a film geek. The facilities of the hotel were great, especially the outside swimming pool. We have a 5 and 6 year old who thoroughly enjoyed their days, I also think they entertained the other guests who were of a more mature age bracket. Everything about our break was great and would highly recommend to everyone.
