We stayed over night after attending a Marine Corps Ball on the property. The entire evening was wonderful, to include the Ball and Dinner. The food, especially the fish plate, was delicious considering the amount of people they had to serve. We got a great rate for a small studio which made it perfect. And since we spent the rest...

I booked the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort last minute and we stayed in Le Ciel. For the money we spent it was a good value. Nothing overly impressive but it was a good, quiet, clean room and was great for the amount of time we spent in it. The bed wasn't on a boxspring and when you sat on... More

In early October, I had the opportunity to spend a few days at the SanDestin Golf and Beach Resort. I very much enjoyed my stay. I had a studio-style room in the Pilot House building.

This is a very large , very posh resort with gorgeous landscaping, a beautiful pool and hot tub. We were in condos that were back from the beach. The seventh floor did have vistas of the beach over a parking lot. The walk to the beach was pleasant enough ,past the pool and onto a board walk that leads to... More

Excellent location for group trip or reunion. Many activities, shopping, dining, and entertainment to keep everyone busy and safe in one place. However, I was there alone for business and became a little bored on the compound after second night. With a rental car it was a quick trip to Destin proper or venture 20 min east to Seaside.
