We stayed in August on the top floor 809 2 bedroom condo and enjoyed our stay very much. The condo was very nicely decorated and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything you would need to cook. The location is close to entertainment and restaurants right down the beach and shopping is close buy. I would stay here again.

It was the first time we go to Destin. We were so excited and couldn' t wait to get there. Unfortunately, we had bad experiences staying at Sterling Shores. The elevator is very slow, using the stairs was way faster than waiting for the elevator. The next day it was out of order. The dryer was broken twice. The 1st... More

This is a great place to stay for families with kids. I have a 12 year old and 3 year old and they enjoyed the pool and beach access, is not that bad of a walk. The resort had daily activities for kids.

Staff was not very friendly. The pull out bed was horrible. You could feel the springs. Washed our clothes and the washer left black stuff on our daughter's swimsuit. Had a broken broom. No way of sweep the sand off the floor. The bed was very uncomfortable. Would never recommend this place to anyone. We had a wonderful time in... More

We booked our room for Memorial Day weekend through a booking agency on the internet - maybe bookit.com or something similar. When we arrived we could not get in the gate, there was no attendant and another guest had to come put in a code for us. When we arrived the front desk was not open (and is NEVER open!).... More
