This place worked out great for us! It's not cheap for a 2-bedroom, 2-bath, so we came with high expectations... And we felt like it was a great spot for us!!! LOVED the view (would suggest 5th floor or higher to have less noise from the pool). LOVED the balcony access directly off master bedroom (one of my requirements). We... More

Our unit was a nice 2 bedroom on the 9th floor. It had a great view of the gulf which is why we chose it. Sterling Shores is right by Back Porch restaurant and the Candymaker so it's super nice to have a couple eating places within easy walking distance. The grounds and pool areas are clean. The elevators weren't... More

I stayed at Sterling Sands in the third week of June this year and had a wonderful time. I rented through VRBO which is great because the front office charges $600-700 more for the week and really doesn't have any extra incentive for renting through them. I rented 4 chairs and two umbrellas for the week and the beach staff... More

Wonderful news. I'm happy to share this with the beach service. Those guys/gals have an extremely hot and demanding job and do their best to accommodate everyone fairly and ensure the safety of others. They will be pleased to see your review and we hope you'll come back to see us again very soon. Sonya Cronin, GM 850-837-9444 Sterling Sands More

We just came back from vacation at 312 Sterling Sands Resort, we rented this condo from Oceanreefresort. The only thing good about this condo was the view, it was beautiful. The beds were awful, the pull out sofa was horribly uncomfortable, my older kids were taking turns sleeping in my younger kids bedroom just to avoid sleeping on the uncomfortable... More

The Sterling Resorts staff and I are unhappy to learn of your discomfort in 312. Unfortunately, we do not manage that condo but we can pass this detail along to that company/owner so they can take action on the beds. We do hope you'll try our property again.

The condo & facilities were very clean & the beach view was awesome from the balcony. The condo was decorated nicely & the living room offered a nice place to gather after time out on the white sand beach & crystal clear water. We however had a few issues that others may want to consider before renting from Sterling Sands.... More

We are very sorry to learn of your issues-Sadly, we are at the end of a main road where the fire department sub station sits. We are happy they are close when we need them here but you are correct...it can be noisy at times. The beach service is not managed by Sterling Resorts but I will pass this along... More

We stayed June 20-27, great condo, right on the beach, the pool was very clean, very family oriented. The only downfall was slow wifi. close to Restaurants, water park, the Track is right across the street. We will return.

Thank you for the time you spent reviewing our piece of paradise. We apologize for the slow wifi--we find that the more people are on property with multiple devices running non stop-we do see a drop in the service area wide. We have sent that message to our wifi vendor to try an increase the signal strength during peak seasons.... More

My family and I recently went to Destin and Travleocity messed our reservation. After this mix up, Sonya Cronin the manager was so kind and reserved a room.

We couldn't agree more. Unit 504 is wonderfully stocked and the owner's do provided beach chairs for their guests. We wish more would provide that service but we have plenty of rental chairs/umbrellas available to our guests.
