We booked on Hotwire and expected a beachside room, but Sandestin is an expansive property. Our room was in the Grand Sandestin property with direct access to the Baytowne Village. We did try the free tram to the beach which was nice but waited quite a while for it. Takes about 15-20 minutes to beach. We opted to take our... More

Booked this resort after reading many reviews. Many negative but there were also good ones. I always throw out the ones that are completely negative because I highly doubt people have as bad of an experience as they claim. We stayed in the Bahia hotel on the 5th floor with a full balcony. The room was great. It was clean,... More

This was my families second visit at this property and our last. I paid for a two bedroom two bathroom suite at the Grand property, upon arrival we were given a single room with double beds, the front desk person offered us the adjoining room a one bedroom suite. I explained that was not what we paid for. He said... More

Customer service was horrible. We were greated with a "yes?" from a front desk associate that didn't even look at us. She was frustrated and bothered to be working there it appeared. Then, the concierge treated us in the same manor. Poor customer service all the way around. You have to shuttle to the actual beach which is a mile... More

Once again, I enjoyed my stay at Sandestin. This is my third time and each time, I am never disappointed. The room was great and had everything we needed, all the staff were friendly, and the beach was pretty. It is one of my favorite places and will remain so.

This was my first stay at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. It was a fantastic week. The condo was clean and updated. We did not stay in a condo on the beach, but access to the beach was quick and easy. The beach and water were wonderful. This trip was a family "girls only" trip, so ages ranged from... More

Stayed in Le Ceil and very much enjoyed the experience. Saw several negative comments on here which turned out to be quite unfounded based on my family's experience. Hands down one of the best hotels we've stayed in at that price point. Originally booked 3 nights and ended up booking a 4th. Sunset over the bay is not to be... More

trkbr2014, Thank you for your review of Sandestin and LeCiel. We agree, the best sunsets ever can be seen from the balconies at LeCiel. The views from LeCiel are like no other on the property. With wonderful views of the Choctawhatchee Bay and the Baytowne Marina, LeCiel is a great location. It is convenient and has a wonderful bay view... More

Tivoli unit# 5439. $3,500 + for 7 nights. Trashed. No a/c. Water dripping out of ceiling light fixture. No linens. Screens kicked in. We've been moved to another unit. Not what we booked but at least the AC works. Can't believe this place has gone downhill this much since we stayed here several years ago.

Not sure what other people see with this place. Horrible service....try getting someone on the phone...a joke. Calling front desk for anything results in no answer only to leave a VM. Don't expect a return call. Had to call housekeeping to service room at 4:30 in afternoon. Their "beachside" is a comical as it only means you are on the... More

The wife and I stayed in the Luau 2 and loved our room. Had view of ocean and pool. Room was spotless and extremely roomy, couldn't have hoped for a better room. Played golf several days. The Links, Baytowne, and Raven where all in great shape even though they'd had several inches if rain. All of the staff where nice.... More
