We stayed in one of the beachfront communities in a condo with an ocean view in the Sandestin Golf and Beach resort. The room was outstanding with excellent amenities, including a full kitchen and very nice furnishings. Their beach is beautiful with sand unlike anything I've ever seen in the US. The resort has so much to offer for adults... More

We stayed in a beachfront condo which was amazing. The white soft sand is like nowhere else and it is suprising the amount of amenities on the property. Four gulf courses and the village with the retail and restaurants are fantastic. Highly recommended.

We had never been to this area of Florida, we usually stay on the Atlantic side, so not knowing what to expect, we booked at this hotel. The grounds were beautiful and the greens were even better! We rented on the bayside, which was convenient for going out since they have a little town on the bayside of the resort... More

We stayed in January 2015 for my husband's meeting. Unfortunately the weather was cold - 20's so we didn't get to enjoy the beach or other outdoor activities. The food served during the meetings was excellent. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and professional. They made us feel welcomed. We stayed in a 1 bedroom condo in Elation. The...

Had a friend's New Years Eve Party at the Penthouse here! I stayed in one of the Studios and it was great! The Bahia Penthouse was beautiful as well! Just a few minute walk to the Baytowne restaurants and bars! Definitely plan on staying there again!

My husband and I visited in mid-October 2014. We booked by calling the resort directly. Our first room was located in Beachside 2, unit # 4307. This unit was outdated with carpet that was so disgusting, my husband didn't even want to walk on it (he is not squeamish and can tolerate much more than I can). The sofa and... More

Before you book a place here, be absolutely sure you know where you want to stay on the property. This isn't like most other locations. The property is HUGE, with several sections/areas to choose from, and the "best" choice for you will depend on what you really want to experience the most at the resort. Part of the resort is...
