“Spacious but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This was our first time using Club Intrawest. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo. We had three problems. First there is no where to put your food except in the refrigerator. I like to cook when we stay somewhere for 5 days. We had our groceries spread out over the tables. Second: There was Very little space for our clothes. One small towel rack in the bathroom. Third: We had asked to be looking out over the bay. They put us out over looking the parking lot. We asked to change, even to move to a one bedroom. They said it was this or nothing. They said go out you bedroom on the balcony and look to your rt. And yes you could see the bay. Baytowne wharf and around the village was the best. If you are a Hilton member you had to pay to use Club Intrawest chairs at the beach.$40..00 per day. We talk to other guess and it sounds like the one bedroom is better.

Room Tip: If you go with two couples, I would suggest to get two single rooms together. Don't bother with...

This was my first stay at Club Intrawest-Sandestin. I am a Hilton Grand Vacations Club member and used my points to stay here. We stayed in a 2-bedroom condo April 8 through April 12, 2013.

The room is extremely nice, clean, having all the amenities that any of the HGVC properties have, ie: fully equipped kitchen, large bathrooms, comfortable beds, etc. The property provides you with beach towels, and bicycles to ride around the area.

I was unaware that this property is actually a resort and that there is a large area with restaurants and shops in the resort area. This was a pleasant suprise. We enjoyed some of the restaurants and found most to be reasonably priced. This place is not on the beach but has close access to the beach nearby. The property has a covered parking garage, which was very nice also. The employees were all very friendly and helpful.

There are grocery stores, shopping, and everything you could need very close by. The restaurants and shopping in the resort is within walking distance from the condo.

The only negative, which I had heard from other reviews, is that if you are NOT a Club Intrawest member, they will not give you a room that overlooks the water from the bay. I was told that was a $50.00 night upgrade. There are, however 2 pools, a hot tub, and a VERY nice grilling area with several gas grills that anyone can use, along with a firepit area.

Overall, an extremely nice property. I have been spoiled to the luxury of Hilton Grand Vacations properties and this property is no slouch either. This property will give you a fantastic vacation and if I return to the panhandle of Florida, I will definately stay at Club Intrawest again.

This was not our first time at Sandestin Intrawest and it won't be our last. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This is one vacation spot where my wife and I can truly relax, even with our kids. We really enjoy the walk to the wharf via the marina for dinner.

Our Family truly enjoyed our stay at Club Intrawest Sandestin location. It's our second time spending our March Break there. The condo's are super clean and the amenities are in excellent condition. There is an arcade for the kids, pools and hot tubs. It's near groceries stores and restaurants at Baytown wharf.

The Beach is only a 5 min drive and the sand is like white sugar. Bike rentals and kayaks near by and Golf as well. Our favourite place to eat is at Another Broken Egg. Very cute restaurant and it's located in the Baytown Wharf, which is a 5 min walk from the condos.

Over all I would stay here again and would love to bring my family and friends to share this experience.

Club Intrawest Sandestin is possibly the best place in the world. I have stayed at this resort 6 times in 3 years, most recently in early February. Having travelled to many places throughout the world, I would count the service, location and amenities as top notch. Emerald Beach across the street (a 5 minute drive) is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. I would highly recommend Club Intrawest.

Room Tip: Ask for a bayside room on either floors 4 or 5 (with a balcony)!

Our family spent Christmas in a 2 bedroom unit, we was perfect for us. The staff were very helpful,pools and hot tubs were great. Place was kept very clean, shopping nearby was wonderful. Always enjoy the Ocean Club for dinner which is nearby. Beach was cool, but a nice walk.

This is a beautiful resort. Exceptionally clean and modern. It's not ultra luxurious but has all the amenities that one needs. We vacationed in April once and in June the second time. The best times to go is from May till Labor day as that is their high season. Beware that many restaurants and facilities in the area are not open in the low season which runs from September - April, even though it's Florida, it's the panhandle and the weather is much colder during the off season when compared to south Florida. There's a very high end fitness club available to all guests which was great. The beach is beautiful and food in the area is superb.

Room Tip: The suite that we stayed in had a balcony (some do not) and was facing the pool/lake which is the pr...
