Great place for a vacation for a weekend or a couple of weeks or more. If you like golf, this is your place to stay. There are four golf courses on the property. There are walking and bicycling areas and you can even rent the bicycles there. You can eat at various restaurants and shop at interesting shops. In other words, you won't need to leave the property. The only problem we had was it rained for four days we were there.

I made reservations at the Luau very late. Our room was a first-floor room with a view of some bushes and the walkway to the parking lot. You enter through the parking garage which leads through a very unattractive basement hallway adjacent to the laundry before entering the elevators. Certainly not very glamorous.
The room had a nice well furnished kitchenette, and a pleasant large sitting area. Both televisions were low end flat panel screens with poor picture quality. The bathroom of course was small with essentially no counterspace around the sink. The tub-shower combination is step in, slippery, and definitely not for the older individual. The bedroom was very small with a cheap mattress. Any movement of your spouse is going to shake the entire bed. Housekeeping is an extra charge. Definitely not on my repeat list.

Room Tip: Choose another floor

I stayed at this hotel for two nights on business. It is a beautiful hotel, a little outdated, but the location is great for a beautiful tropical setting. My bed was quite lumpy, definately time to retire the mattress. I would have expected a few extras due to this being advertised as a resort. There was no selection of tea bags in the room, only coffee 1 decaf, 1 regular and 1 bag that contained sweetner, and there were no snack machines in the hotel. The staff were all very accomodating and friendly and altogether this was a pleasant stay- will be even better when the mattress is new.

Hubby and I went here for three days for an anniversary getaway. The room was nice and bed very comfy. The resort offers plenty of amentities and shopping within walking distance. The pier nightlife was great! The beautiful beach water is only a few miles awayI can't say enough positive things about the whole Sandestin experience but we will definitely be going back!

My husband and I spent the weekend after Thanksgiving at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Sandestin, Florida, and had a wonderful time. The resort was beautiful and our stay even included free bike rentals which we took advantage of, and after untold years, had a great time riding though the grounds of the resort, even if we were a little wobbly. We also went to Baytown Wharf Village located on the resort grounds, had a wonderful dinner at Graffiti's and enjoyed a wonderful evening and the atmosphere at the Wharf. This resort is a great place to stay and enjoy all that it has to offer,

We spent a long weekend in a Grand Sandestin condo in May for a friend's wedding. We had a wonderful time during our stay. The hotel is immaculate, the rooms spacious, the grounds are fantastic. You have restaurants and bars and shops, all within walking distance. With the exception of one quick trip to WalMart, for a poolside cooler to hold 350 Jell-O shots, we purchased everything we needed at the resort! All of our friends stayed in the same building and all of our balconies overlooked the pool and bay. We even booked a 4 hour sail on the Gulf one afternoon. It was a memorable trip and we will visit this resort again this year!

Room Tip: Get a room with a pool view and balcony!
