A lot of people are interested in where the Obama’s stayed while in Panama City, Florida. Though it was hardly top secret, I wasn’t comfortable writing about it while they were there for security reasons. But now that they’re gone – they just got back to Washington – let me introduce you to the Bay Point Marriott Golf Resort & Spa. A relatively modest choice for Obama-style travel.
First of all, it has a policy, to which it seems some people get an exception. PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED. Unless their name is Bo Obama. If Bo moonlighted as someone’s seeing eye dog, then he was allowed to stay as a regular guest, and our apologies for suspecting special treatment.
The Bay Point includes three restaurants and a pool bar. It has a spa, indoor and outdoor pools, and a gym. Coffee is served in the lobby. Newspapers are also available in the lobby, and you do not get one placed at your door unless you request it. You can get a complimentary boat ride to Shell Island, whatever the Hell that is.
The nicest room I could find was the “two Bedroom Larger Villa, Partial Golf view, Golf Villas, Balcony” costing $299 for a Saturday night stay. Others started at $149.
Here’s a nice view of the place at dusk. Or dawn, whatever.
Here’s the nice lobby.
Here’s one of the pools.
Here’s the swimming instructor.
