Great hotel for the beach. It has a cool little wooden walkway to the beach and a nice hottub and pool. The beds were extremely comfortable and all appliances functioned well. Can't ask for more than this for the price.
My wife and I and a grandson stayed here on 10/23 to 10/26/14. It was one of the best experiences we have had at a hotel/motel over many years. The only ones we would rate higher are two "luxury" hotels located at resorts in Hawaii which were considerably more expensive. Since our primary reason for trip was to visit with a grandson and not "do" the beach routine, the access to beach which could be a disadvantage was not a problem. The breakfast was exceptional as well as the room furnishings and our interaction with the staff. My wife liked the bed so much she took down the information and we are going to pursue ordering an identical one.
We chose this hotel to celebrate our first anniversary, and are so very glad that we did. We had an amazing experience. Compared to other hotels in our price range, the reviews were SHOCKINGLY more positive - we quickly found out why, and now we are leaving a positive one as well. Clean, nice, comfortable bed and linens, convenient location (close to grocery stores, shopping, beach a few minutes away), lending closet (borrow games/kitchen devices/beach toys for free), honor system store to buy toiletries/drinks/snacks, kitchenette in room, view of by from room. Outstanding.
They let us check in early. Gave us personalized key cards for our room. Room was really clean and had all the amenities. Lobby has perfect view of the bay and there are areas to sit outside and take in the weather. We took a little walk to check out the beautiful golf course and picture perfect bay. All in all glad we took the staycation and stayed there.
The view of the bay from our balcony was exceptional! We absolutely fell in love with Sandestin Beach and Golf Resort. The grounds were stunning, and the entire experience was paradise! We almost stayed at the beach, and I'm so glad we did not, as we had access to the entire resort, the village, shops, restaurants, pools, everything! We even toured some open houses on Sunday and started thinking about purchasing our next home within the resort. Thank you, thank you!
Room were clean. View was breathtaking. Staff was courteous. Food was really expensive but good. Wifi should have been a free ammenity. Visited for wedding, it was beautiful and well planned. Also, we traveled with an infant. My neighbors didn't hear her cry through the walls. I will return for future visits.
