Advertise "on the beach" They are not. You actually have to walk across the property, and then across the street to get to the beach access. Very misleading in my opinion. Should say "beach views" instead.

We stayed at the Sterling Shores Resort June 13 to 19. We stayed in room 311, which was a one bedroom with a pull our sofa. The resort itself is very well maintained. Pools are clean and immaculate. Beach is only across the boardwalk, but very busy with many umbrella's and chairs. We enjoyed our stay except that we couldn't... More

I go to Destin twice a year and I've stayed in room 701 for the past 13 years with My family. Luckily Stealing Shores is located along hwy 98, a great location. Recently they updated everything, room 701 has new floors, countertops, beds, outdoor furniture, appliances, TV's, the whole 9 yards. My family's favorite tradition is watching the sun rise... More

We stayed in condo 301 with a family of 10 and the condo was great. The property is very nice, although there is a short walk in order to get to the beach. The pool is very nice, but there is a guy CONSTANTLY watching every move and correcting anything he sees unfit. I guess that's not such a bad... More

We stayed at Sterling Shores during Memorial day week. Overall the resort is clean with friendly staff however not sure if would stay here again. Units: All units are not ocean view. We had initially booked a 3-bedroom unit. Although we had booked it under a very good promotional price, the unit was on the second floor over-looking the public... More

My friend and I stayed in condo #410 for a five days in May. The condo is lovely, very clean and furnished beautifully. Everything you could possibly need is there, it is located just steps from the elevator. The building, pool and lovely grounds are very secure, we especially enjoyed the big pool. We also enjoyed sitting out on the... More

Sterling Shores Condos are nice, really nice. They have two pools and the grounds are maintained daily. It's next to the famous Back Porch Restaurant and Ruth Chris. Only thing is try to rent above 4th floor because palm trees will block view of ocean, but if you don't mind that they're all good. Two and three bedrooms. For the... More

The property has a great pool, nice landscaping and is in decent shape for its age. But when you go to the beach, you can't even see the water b/c of all the rental chairs blocking the way. We called the sheriff's office to find out the local regulations and were told no one owns the beach 20' from the... More

A little expensive but Destin is always our destination in the Panama city beach-Fort Walton area. Great service and fairly close to the Harbor. The location of the condominiums is awesome The one bedroom condos are the best.
