We stayed in the Baytown Wharf "Pilot House" for a week in February. RENT THROUGH VRBO instead of through the condo. You will pay an arm and a leg more when not renting through owner. Cons: -The room was a standard studio and it seemed smaller than a typical hotel room. Once we folded out the sofa bed we really... More

This is a wonderful place, beautiful white beaches and the aqua water! Love parking the car staying on the Bayside and being close to all the wonderful nightlife. During the day, we like riding bikes to the beach! And at night, the boardwalk at the Bayside Wharf is the place to be! Live music and good food! We have been... More

Stayed and played for 5 days at Sandestin in March and it was fantastic. The golf courses are beautiful, fun and yet challenging. We stayed in a villa at Magnolia Bay. The villa was large, spotless and very well funished. It had 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. 4 flat screen tvs in all and a screened in lanai for afternoon... More

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort has a variety of luxurious amenities with a location that allows for privacy, yet is still close to a wide range of attractions.

We drove to Sandestin from Ohio so we were really ready to relax when we arrived. But there was so much to do! I loved the Sandestin resort and so did my boyfriend. We are in our 40's but it made me realize how much I would love to retire in a community like Sandestin. With the golf, bike trails,... More

While we enjoyed the resort location, layout and nearby dining and entertainment venues, our accommodations left something to be desired. We were in a two bdrm condo in Beachside II building. While we specifically requested that we not be located near the elevator, our unit was directly next to it. Being that we arrive in the middle of a downpour... More

This is one of our favorite spots! You cannot find more beautiful beaches in the US than in Destin. The amenities that are available here are too many to try to list.

I have been traveling to the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort for over 16 years. I was first introduced to the area by my husband in 1996 and have come every year since that time. It is the best place to relax, share and enjoy shopping, the food and water in one location. I love it over there and when... More

Stayed at the Grand Sandestin. Location and things to do are great but the hotel itself is not that great: no water pressure; tv didn't work; AC banged all night; bed was hard and you could feel the springs coming through. If you are used to nice hotels, you will be disappointed by this.
