“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We had a great time at Courtyard. It is so close to the Baytowne Wharf area & to the beach & to shopping. We were able to bike to any of these places. Sandestin is one of our favorite places to travel. We will be coming back.

The staff was awesome, hotel it's beautiful. Apple's bees just across the hotel in walking distance. Has everything you need, pool, fitness, laundry and a restaurant that we only ate there once for dinner and the food was really good. Their Starbucks coffe is good too. :-D excellent.

We arrived very late at night and had a little difficulty finding our way to the parking lot, but once inside the staff was very helpful. Our room was spotless and confortable with a nice little balcony, which we did not expect. The beds were comfortable and staff were generous with extra towels (four women!) Our third floor North facing room overlooked the pool and had a nice view of the golf course, which was also nice. Parking spaces were plentiful and spacious and the lobby was wel appointed.

Room Tip: Try to get a North facing room so you have a better view. Otherwise your view is traffic. For those...

The front desk employees are the most pleasant people you could ask for at the beach. Unlike larger properties where management isn't aware of daily operations, clearly this group of people are motivated by a job well done. They take personal pride in serving their guests. Cleanliness and the best breakfast anywhere in Florida, a heartfelt thank you for making our week stay so memorable. We have 12 more nights booked now as a direct compliment to the standard of service delivered by these true professionals. I work at at a hospital close to this hotel and I recommend it 1st to all my patients and family!
Keep up the quality work! It's like being at home!

Courtyards are fairly consistent throughout the United States, this location a bit nicer than the norm. I do not know when they had their last building update but this property is fresh and very clean.
Additionally, one enjoys access to Sandestin resort next door. Great walking and jogging paths. Beach access. Nice restaurants and shops in the pedestrian friendly center about two blocks east; easy walk or short drive.

Room Tip: Get a room in the back away from Highway 98 for more quiet.

This is a “feel good” hotel where we had the chance to actually relax. Friendly, very accommodating personnel, excellent room service, clean. I woke up every morning with a cup of starbucks espresso from the hotel’s Bistro, looked from the balcony at the golf course and packed for one of the many Destin’s beaches.

The hotel is on the road and not on the beach. The access to the nearest beach, across the road, has been discontinued by HOA in mid May. This gave us the opportunity to explore different beaches from Sandestin to Ft. Walton and we were never bored.

Not all windows in this Marriott can be opened so choose a room with balcony if you wish to fully enjoy your stay. I never stay in a hotel room in which I cannot open windows, since it resemble a gas chamber.

This was our second stay at Sandestin Marriott Courtyard and I would return again. If I need a real sea beach experience, however, I would choose hotel or condo directly on the beach.

We needed a place to stay for one night so I got this hotel from Priceline. It was a nice hotel, Exactly what you would expect from Marriott , but for the price I thought it was very expensive for what they offer Amenities wise.
The room from Priceline was around 160 and the rate directly from Marriott was over 200. It was nowhere near the beach did not have room service and it had a very small café and small pool.

I would not recommend this hotel for a vacation destination but is probably fine for business travel. But again I will state, it is extremely expensive for the location
