I have two posts on this location which relate OUR experience. There seems to be two locations with similar names. Sandy Pointe Destin West where we stayed is not on the beach, nor is it an island and is located in a questionable at best area. It is an old motel style property with two stories. Our experience was a disaster as you can see in our previous posts dated January 2012 and a response to someones request from one month ago (September '13) I would say stay anywhere but here!!

I don't know what your problem is, but almost ALL of the reviews for Sandy Pointe are very positive.

Sounds like you have an issue with someone other than Sandy Pointe!

I am interested in renting a unit from TAN and would like an honest opinion about the Sandy Point at Destin West for two retired teachers. I am concerned about safety, cleanliness, and amenities.

Thank you.

I think your concerns are valid. Too many questionable reviews. I would stay somewhere with better reviews, & not take the risk.

The rates must be good, otherwise so many people would not take the chance. If you read through the entire thread, a few people were satisfied, but the majority were not. I personally would not take the risk. There are so many other choices.

Trixie, it must be some sort of timeshare & those sales people can be VERY good :-( ....& I'm guessing there aren't a lot of options for the people who want to use their "weeks" on the Emerald Coast.

Is this place part of Destin West? Sounds like it is not but the name is confusing me.

I stayed a week at Sandy Pointe with family members from April 4th to the 11th. We all had one bdrm condo's and each had a sleeper sofa. Don't expect the Ritz or Waldorf Astoria type accommodations....BUT, the condo's were very clean. The TV's in the bedrooms are old and reception was poor. The main room TV's were fine, flat screen led's. The condo's are on second and third floors. There is no elevator. Laundry room is on the ground level. Manager and staff were on site when we arrived and allowed to check in early. They were all very nice. About a 2 block walk to the beautiful white sand beaches of the Gulf. Great eating places are all over the place. Some within walking distance. Some guests were disappointed that there was no pool. You got the ocean a short walk away...who the hell needs a pool.

Bottom line....Nice clean place, quiet and comfortable. Would stay here again.
