Very nice unit; condo location is beach side and central to all amenities; well maintained pool and public areas; use of beach somewhat limited by 'for rent' umbrellas and chairs; free wi-fi/internet and movie rental.

My wife and I visited Sterling Sands for our spring break this year and had a lovely time for the most part. It rained some but overall the weather was beautiful, the water was gorgeous, and the condo was one of the nicest in this area. We dealt mostly with Sonya in the front office and she was amazing. My...

No wonder this unit is Premier! Totally the nicest 2 bedroom unit we've stayed in at Sterling Sands. Extremely clean, beautifully decorated with amazing furnishings, spacious bathrooms w modern showers, great mattresses on all beds, and the kitchen had everything needed for a family vacation. We will be back requesting Unit 210!

We were told the construction on the unit we were staying in was finished but for two weeks all day from 8:00 to five and sometimes beyond we heard constant sawing , buzzing and banging. I was so embarrassed as I had my sister in from Australia and my best friend visiting during that time. The kitchen lacked any cooking...

My wife and I spent a week in Destin in late September. We were blessed with superlative weather, and were fortunate to have selected Sterling Sands for our lodging. Our third floor unit (#311) provided great views, was clean throughout, and made our stay easy with a fully stocked kitchen. On the beach location, with nice pool, hot tub, and...

I would give Sterling Sands 5 stars if it weren't for the jerks they have running their beach service! They hog all but about 10 feet from border to border of Sterling Sands property. They harass anyone wanting to set up their own chairs, claiming they have some legal right to the beachfront. It's a lot to pay for a...

I'm sorry you had that experience. Please understand it is a separate vendor and that properties to our east and west (beach service wise) do manage that beach. They leave a small courtesy beach front row for people to bring their own chairs/etc but no where on the beaches with condos do they allow a guest to set up personal...

We liked the Sterling Sands a lot. Nice pool, and great location right in the heart of Destin. We stayed in unit 512 which was pretty and well furnished. However the second bedroom was very small- as in nowhere to put your luggage. The bed was a double. The main BR was large and had a king. Both baths were...

Thank you for your review. Prior to your next visit, check out our website to see unit photos in advance and perhaps the Deluxe 2 bedroom would be better for your next trip. It's over 1200 sq. ft. vs. the 860 sq. ft. unit you had. The master bedroom faces the gulf in this floor plan and has balcony access....

We stayed in room 812. Although it wasnt as clean as I had hoped, it was ok for the price. The had a really nice pool and hot tub and the location was great. The bedrooms were very small so I would recommend the deluxe instead of the regular. Overall we were happy with our stay here at Sterling Sands

They wouldn't allow a canopy on the beach. We have a 7 month old so we brought it to keep her well shaded. They just want to make even more money from the beach chair and umbrella rentals. Wifi connection was horrible, kept disconnecting, useless.

I hope the housekeeping issues were brought to our attention so we could get the team involved to fix it? The wifi is a free service and connectivity has much to do with how many devices are online, service provider of the guest vs. best signal for this location. We've had no wifi issues other than a few folks who...
