The Luau wasn't in our plans, but we decided to go to Sandestin at the last minute and they had rooms available, so we took it. Based on that, I can honestly say it didn't disappoint me at all. If you are expecting housekeeping, you have to pay a fee (I recommend you do it while checking-in). Since we were... More

We chose LUAU based on location and price. We were only there for two nights but would have LOVED to stay longer! We were in a one bedroom in Luau 1. We loved the huge balcony with a wonderful view and even though we weren't directly on the beach, it was just a very short walk. The condo was tastefully... More

The room was mostly clean. Could use a "deep" cleaning. Only one elevator was working almost the entire time of our stay. This was our second time to stay at the Laua. We will probably look further before booking this particular hotel at this resort again. The registration staff was very cordial, and inviting.

A great beachside location that seems to be less crowded. Across the parking lot from the Hilton. The pool has a waterfalls, which kids seem to love. There is a pool side bar & grill with friendly staff. The rooms are more modern style, but each one I have stayed in is very different from each other. Be careful with... More

The entire Sandestin experience was amazing. The Luau was a nice building near the beach. The room was nice and clean. There really isnt a need for housekeeping and maintenance (clean up after yourself) . I enjoyed the entire resort, from the Hurricanes and other drink specials, to the beautiful beach to the restaurants. ACME was best seafood outside of... More

We always enjoy the Luau resort at Sandestin. Most recent trip was this past Easter holiday. Try to get a top floor corner 2 bedroom unit. Views are amazing. Condo itself is nicely equipped and tastefully decorated. Family friendly area, lots to do, great restaurants, etcetera.. Lots of sidewalks to have a great morning jog, and always nicely landscaped for... More

Spent many nights at Sandestin Resort through the years, creating a lot of great memories. This place is an embarrassment to the resort. Cramped rooms-no storage, no separate elevator access for housekeeping meant long waits, common areas unclean, poor parking arrangements, and only one ice machine for 19 stories--by the way it was broken and we had to go to...

Went for my wife's birthday, we live in the panhandle but wanted to be near the beach... We stayed for two nights at luau tower 2 in august and it was super overcrowded on the beach and at the pool. Included no food, and the traffic was terrible. There was no plug in the bathtub to take a bath. The... More

Booked a trip to Luau over Labor Day weekend for a getaway from the city. We got there on Thursday night and left on Monday morning. It got increasingly busier through the weekend due to everyone wanting one last hurrah before summer ended. The beaches were packed and so was the resort. However, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We requested a... More
