We stayed here in July 2014 and have never had a worse experience while on vacation. It was mid July and obviously hot outside and you were not allowed to lower the temperature of the room. After only one night the air conditioning broke in our room. It was not fixed for the rest of our stay and we could... More

Stayed at Westwinds in unit 4775 from October 26-November 1. We rented our unit from VRBO directly from the owner. We had no problems whatsoever with the rental process. Everything went as scheduled. The unit was very nice, very clean with a wonderful view from the 9th floor. The only complaint I would have at all with the room is... More

I was nervous after booking because of the recent reviews. However, we booked through My Vacation Haven for a 2 br 4th floor condo that was recently renovated - tile, granite, stainless steel etc. Had a fall special discount so paid $200 or so per night. The building and grounds were well kept and saw tons of workers refreshing things.... More

This was a great stay. Everyone has their own opinion. For me I loved it. Don't be too picky and understand vacations are not always cheap. So be prepared for some high price foods. I will be back here again. A must see and visit the properties while staying here.

We just got back from a few days at Westwinds in Sandestin, we stayed August 15 - 18. It was our first trip to Destin at all, and it was a mixed bag. The ocean was really nice one of the days we were there, with clear water and gentle waves. The other days were “yellow-flag” days where there was... More

Our recent week long visit to Westwinds @ Sandestin was a mixed bag. Our teenaged son had a blast, but he wasn't the one paying over $400.00 a night for a supposedly "top notch" destination. We leased a two bedroom condo on the 12th floor (#4803) for one week. We paid a $150.00 fee for cleaning, $45.00 fee for shuttle... More

Just returned from a very nice vacation in Westwinds. We stayed on the 5th floor in unit 4744. Condo had plenty of room for my family and the kitchen had all of the basics for a simple meal. We thoroughly enjoyed the beach, although there were several rows of umbrellas that they put right up to the water. The water... More

We are visiting for 1 week, paid just under $3,000 for 1bd (not on the water). The condo came stocked with 2 rolls of toilet paper and very basic items for a condo vs. a hotel. Called to ask for a fresh supply of toilet paper and the manager told me where the grocery store was. Very rude on the... More

We have stayed in Sandestin many times. We have stayed in many different condos on the beachside. Sometimes the rooms are very nice with great furnishings and sometimes they are just very average. This time was just fair. The resort itself is awesome. There is something to do all the time. The village is great, golf is fantastic, tennis is... More

We stayed at the Westwinds this spring. It was our first time visiting Sandestin and we were thoroughly impressed. Our unit was spotless, with a full kitchen stocked for cooking and a balcony with a beautiful view that overlooking the ocean in both the family room and bedroom. Although we chose a one bedroom unit, there was a pullout couch... More
