The porperty needs some attention, especially the north side where you check in. Needs steam cleaned for dirt and mildew. First balcony overlooked parking lot and buildings with partial view of water was filthy. Bird droppings, mildew, spider webs, feathers and lots of dust.
Second room was Presidential Reserve with huge clean balcony overlooking shopping and bars below as well as into bay. Room was clean beds were very good to sleep in. Area has constant racket from highway, boats people and music from bars. If you want to be in the middle of the action this is your place. Every morning there was pounding and banging from ongoing construction and multiple delivery trucks.
The place is confusing to navigate. We found the staff to be just fine. The servers at breakfast were all great and breakfast food was supurb.
No beach on site but there private beach with an attentive staff was a short free ride away. Actually given all the activity on the boardwalk it was a plus having the beach over on the sand strand. On the ride to the beach about ten dolphins swam next to the boat. Awesome. The only negative on the beach were cigarette butts everywhere in the sand.
Lots of good entertainment and food within walking distance.
Property okay, just a bit grubby and too much noise for us, especially since we no longer have kids travelling with us. Going back to Sandestin.
