“Wonderful location on the Gulf”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Nothing like walking out the door of your hotel and being able to step out on to the beautiful white sands of the Gulf beaches! If you have never been here the beaches are clean and the sand is pure white and soft and cool...even in the summer! We stayed a week, the staff was pleasant, the breakfast was good and our housekeeping service was great every day. I only have one complaint and one suggestion.....the suggestion is the need for better food selections for later in the evening. We needed dinner one night at 900 pm and there was only a few options available in the bar. My only complaint was that the mattress was awful....so soft and very uncomfortable. Might be time to be replaced.

We stayed for two nights during the off season in February. The room was very nice with a balcony and great view of the ocean. The pool, pool bars, and lunch spots were all closed, as it was not high season. However, we had breakfast every morning at the hotel, which was lovely and reasonably priced for a resort buffet. We also had dinner in the hotel's steakhouse which was great. They have an activities desk where a staff member helps you plan any activities that you desire. Overall, the staff was very friendly. The hotel is located in a great spot, near much of the dining and shopping. My only complaint is that the resort seemed a bit outdated, but it appeared as though they were performing some maintenance and renovations while we were there. We would definitely return.

My husband and I traveled to the Hilton Sandestin for his birthday along with our kids & cousins. This was our first time there and we were super excited. However I didn't get that "welcoming" feeling from the agent that checked us in, which happened to be a supervisor. As we checked in, there was no conversation as to why we were in town. I did mention that it was my husbands birthday, but there wasn't any enthusiasm from her. I was kind of hoping she would have made it special for him by send him a little birthday card to the room. But i guess not all hotels like to make it more of a personal experience for the guest. Traveling to a resort like this, I would expect her to be overly friendly and welcoming. I did come in contact with one when I needed my keys reactivated. She was an older, yet mature women. Very sweet and kind! As a Gold member, the supervisor didn't go above and beyond to make me feel as if I was a loyal Hilton Honors member. Being that I'm a supervisor at another property, I didn't feel as if she was very friendly. She didn't even engaged in conversation during check in. I believe all agents should carry themselves in a welcoming matter no matter what. You never know who you may be checking in; GM or Personal Shopper, etc. Anyway, my family and I enjoyed our stay. No problems with the rooms. My kids loved the indoor poor. And breakfast was awesome. We will return on day, and hope to be greeted better that the first time.

Our stay at this Hilton was for the 20th anniversary/renewal vows of our son & his wife. We had been upgraded to a jr. Suite but since it was in another building away from the rest of the family & friends, our daughter-in-law went to bat for us and another couple, we got changed to rooms closer to the rest. Staff was very accommodating. View from our 7th floor room was very nice. But parking was high considering there was plenty of spaces. Their famous restaurant Seagars where the reception was held had excellent food and exceptional service. That was definitely 5 star ranking.

Best Trip Ever, don't wait to book just go now! Our guest room was very large, and had two bunk beds upon walk in and a sofa, desk, and chair. We have plenty of room to spread out and be comfortable. We stayed for 5 days, and also used the spa. The Spa was nice, but I have seen better, but for what it was worth, it was a nice place with pleasant staff. I would however encourage the hotel to upgrade or thoroughly clean thier spa facilites. They seemed a bit worn and dirty in the shower areas. The resort itself, is surrounded by a huge golf course and many high rise, villa's and resturants. You can basically stay in SandDestin Resort and never leave, they have everything you need! We are booking our trip back already!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean, you can see the sunset.

Close to everything, beautiful views, GREAT food. I loved the breakfast! Right on a private beach, pool, tiki bar, and lots of places to relax. We spent a week, went deep sea fishing, the hotel will help you find any activity you want to do. I zipped line, my husband was not that daring. I would, strike that, I WILL go back as soon as possible.

Room Tip: We were mid way up, 7th floor, we had great views, right over the spa.
