The layout and design
the resort seems pretty old...
I liked the view and closeness to the beach. I didn't like the fact that the house keeping staff could not speak English and made it very difficult to get the room cleaned in the proper way.
The view from the room was great Staff was friendly Convenient location The hallway are creepy The tub needs updating now! The green door need to be painted another color Smelled like cigarettes and air freshener in the hall and elevator BAD PARKING not enough spaces guest room doors slamming shut all night
Everything you need is on the property! There are restaurants, a souvenir shop, two different pools, a kids water park, and a grotto bar. What more could you want? And it's ocean front. We loved that we could rent chairs and an umbrella for a flat rate and not have to worry about lugging things down to the beach.
Waterfall bar Dirty and small rooms
The way that certain members of desk staff, including Patti, handled the situation promptly and appropriately--showing they care about the customers. Upon arrival, food was left in the refrigerator from the previous guest and not cleaned out. My room was not cleaned on Thurs., 6-1-17. Food was left in there from room service when I was told it would be removed. Room was not cleaned and towels and wash cloths were not replaced. Certain members of cleaning staff laughed about this when told of the situation.
The run was comfortable and clean. The pool was fun to hang out at. The pool water was really really cold. The food was not very good at either restaurant. Children were coming into the grotto bar.
The beach & grotto The breakfast was a little pricey, most hotels we stay at include free breakfast
Love the amenities. Several pools. Needs to be cleaned. Spots in pool. Hot tub.
I loved that it was right on the beach, comfy beds, fridge in room, decent restaurants on site and within walking distance, awesome pool and grotto bar area, laundry room on site, heated pool for night time, grills to use on beach patio, would definitely come back!!! DO NOT EVER GO ON 4th of JULY WEEKEND!!! There is a HUGE, very weird Christian cult that comes every year. There were at least 200 of them, doing baptisms in the ocean all day, and at night was just trying to walk to my chair with my boyfriend to have a drink, listen to music, talk, look at the stars, and had to walk through a huge gathering of them all kneeling in rows staring at the ocean silently--thought they were looking at fireworks or something at first but noooo. Felt weird to have to walk through them but too many to go around. Pick another weekend and it will be great! Also, they make you check out at 11:30 and want you to turn in your wristband, so if you want to stay that afternoon, hide them and tell them you lost them. You will have to pay $10 a piece but worth it if you want to enjoy rest of day
Condo was beautiful, spacious for 2 adults and 2 kids, and very comfortable. 1 heated pool, 1 pool big enough probably to fit the entire complex at the same time. View was amazing and the water almost Caribbean looking. Plenty to do in Fort Walton, and Destin which was only 10 minutes away. The best part of Fort Walton is how clean and peaceful it is. Destin is also beautiful but a lot more touristy. We will definitely be returning but in the summer this time. Weather temperatures were great but water not so much. Wish the big pool was heated as well, it went pretty much unused the whole week because of how cold the water was. The ocean was also too cold for comfort, unfortunately. Our room was great but could definitely use some new shower heads.
rooms were large and comfortable. Beds were very good. Beach view was great, shopping and golf nearby was a plus. satellite tv was down Friday evening so unable to watch television
Location In room safe and refrigerator were not operable and had to be replaced. Upholstered furniture is stained.
I like the size of the room and the staff was great! The only thing that made is not as good was the floor was wet and we had to wear shoes while on the carpet because our feet would get sticky from the carpet and dirty. The toliet was dirty and there was some mold arounf the bath tub.
High cost of room service for basic items
Clean easy to get around They hogged the beach with there pricey umbrellas and didn't let us into the gym because we had a child with us therefor we couldn't work out the stay because we had a child.
Our oceanfront suite was very impressive! It was modern, comfortable and romantic. It met all our needs!
Location is great, the resort is beautiful it is within walking distance of a lot of nice places. Hidden charges, I was charged about $180 over my bill no one could really tell me what it was for beside taxes. If I had known that I would have never stayed at the Resort, that is crazy. I stayed my first and last stay there. It is nice just can't stand $180 in hidden charges.
I liked everything about the resort. It was in very good location to the malls, restaurants, grocery stores. Whatever you needed wasn't far at all. Everyone was super nice at the resort & made you feel welcomed. We will moat definitely stay here again!
The location was excellent, right on the beach. Room was clean and comfortable, and the view was wonderful. Would have liked to stay longer, but had to leave for prior commitments.
Love the close proximity to the beach and great things for kids to do! We come every year and love sundestin. Bar and restaurant are great, and we love the service on the beach! Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Only complaint was at check in they told us the door to the balcony was broken and maintenance would be by to fix it. The door handle was completely off, and there was no way to secure the door. If my husband and I were traveling without our five year old it would have been no issue. Maintenance never showed to fix the door at all during our stay.
Everything was perfect Checkout time was early!
beautiful courtyard, pool, full kitchen, and plenty of drawer space, very helpful staff, and room nicely furnished, but rooms bay view of boats in the marina, the bay and the courtyard with the hot tub was glorious!! light bulb out, bathroom so small had to dismantle the toilet paper roll to sit comfortably, woken by cleaning in middle of stay to clean although had a do not disturb sign on door, and 2 out of 4 days they did not replace the coffee for the coffee machine. AND although I had bad knees there was no elevator only lots of sets
Water location safe family hotel Price
The lady who checked us in was rude! Also I was bitten by bed bugs!! We have photos to prove it!
Visually pleasant with night life and shops on site. After driving thirteen hours with three children, it was disappointing to arrive and be surprised by additional fees of $92 at the check-in counter. From there we drove to our room (Bayside), unloaded the car, schlepped up to our room to find it uncleaned. Towels soaked in red juice, trash on the floor, no bedding, and the a/c off. The room phone did not work to call the front desk. I used my cell phone, and it remained on hold waiting for an agent for over 30 minutes. We didn't wait the 30 minutes, but I kept it on while re-loading the family and our luggage and returning to the front desk. They did change our room, but to pay $300/night and be moved to a room without 2 beds was disappointing. (Family of 5- original room was 2 Queens and a couch. "Upgraded" to a nicer area but given 1 Queen and a couch with 2 adults, 2 teens, and a 7 yr old.) 2nd room was clean but not adequate space for our family. Would've been better off saving money and having enough space for our family and a clean room. Not what I expect from a resort. Not even a complimentary bottle of water available.
Overpriced for the distance and navigation to the beach.
Everything was great. NA
Loved the beds!! So comfy!! The view was nice, the pool was nice too. My husband and I plan to return next summer. That housekeeping doesn't clean the rooms daily. Kind of a pain to make your own beds and buying a broom to sweep the sand off the floors ourselves. We were supposed to be on vacation. And they wanted to charge $55.00 to send housekeeping to clean.
Aaron at the front desk was amazing. Very friendly and knowledgable.
The location was ok had a nice beach and downtown sandestin was a nice atmosphere. Have stayed at Sandestin 3 times now I liked the resort until this stay. The pool was filthy with all kinds of cups floating or sunk in pool a diaper had come apart on the side and it stayed there all day. We asked about getting someone to clean the pool and there was no one to do it (supposedly it was there day off). We stayed 3 days and the pools were dirty the whole time. No coolers were allowed at the pool so you had to buy water or whatever you wanted to drink from them. Didn't like the fact they charge a resort fee plus a cleaning fee on top of your nightly rate. You cant get a cup of water with your meal just bottled water waiter said they do to much volume to give a glass of water with your meal. Overall just thought they take advantage of whoever is staying on there property. I love the Destin area but will find a new place to stay.
Beautiful property! Room was very dated. Needs some repairs. Room was a long way from the beach.
I'd go back in a heartbeat. The room had a gorgeous view of the Gulf and was very clean. The pool and hot tub are right outside with island music playing. We went at the end of the season so it wasn't crowded. 2 minute walk to the very clean well maitanted beach. It's also about a 5-19 minute drive to all the action in destin like water sports. The resorts has gorgeous golf courses, ship, restaurants...it's a gated secured community and I felt like I was driving through some rich neighborhood. Lol definitely recommend it!!! Especially in September after the summer season cuz the weather is still perfect and rooms are cheaper. Lol perfect for romantic getaways and families of all ages. We stayed at the luau tower and they didn't have room service. Only a pizza delivery service. But that's ok
Rooms are a bit dated
Perfect location!! Everything you need is right there or super close. We loved the Sunset Bay Cafe! Delicious food with an amazing view.
The view Outdated, felt very cheap
