Grand Opening - Springhill Suites and Beach House Bar & Gril

Photos and Discussion of the old Navarre Beach Holiday Inn Hotel, and planned construction of another Hotel planned for the existing site destroyed by Hurricane Ivan on September 2004 and Hurricane Dennis on 2005. Info about the 1978 movie Jaws 2, which much of the film was filmed at Navarre Beach in the 1970’s. The actors and crew used the old Holiday Inn as their headquarters.

It is what it is.

The word I have from two people who visited the place yesterday is that it is nice, but ...

"A place for the special occasion dinner, not somewhere for everyday dining."

Have to say menu doesn't appear to be very "beachy" for a "Beach House Bar & Grill".

Yep, and no published prices on the menu has always meant "PRICEY", in my experience!!

:shock:

Did stop out for the "tour"/look-around yesterday about 1-1:30 PM. Beautiful place.
Also, crazy crowded - in addition to the hotel/restaurant guests - all of us "locals" having a look-see.
Talked to 4-5 that I knew.

Only guest room type open for tour was a main floor "over-sized" - stated to be over 400-square feet, would sleep six - two queen beds and a pull out couch.
They stated the "standard" room was about 300- ft.2. Gulf side rooms on floors 2 and above have balconies, as do 20 of the island side rooms.

Two very nice meeting rooms, has exercise room, indoor very large "spa/pool" - very nice outdoor pool-lazy river. (Gets me that all that weight is suspended 20-feet up - but gives for great views over the berm.
Small gift shop, lobby breakfast bar and small bar with seating. Berm walkover with stairs and handicapped ramps. Sand "playground" enclosed on all sides so kids don't walk off.

Restaurant/bar has both indoor and deck seating (deck on west side - could be warm in late PM.).
For the first couple of weeks - lunch and dinner only. Lunch menu is more "beachy" - sandwiches and such. Will post pics of the menus they gave me later.
Will have to try - but not until a month from now or so.
Cheers, Pete

Sounds like a typical hotel.

I'll be trying it in two weeks (when I am next there).

What's a Beach Bar and Grill without Mojitos? No Crab Claws, snooze. Grouper and Red Snapper would be nice as well.
