We stayed 2 nights in the Luau Tower 2. Let me start by saying we got this at a silent auction fundraiser for a few hundred less than what it would normally cost to stay. The room was extremely clean. This made me very happy. But, that is about the best I can say about it. For the money someone... More

Wore out, nasty carpet. Was on hold 10 min just to ask where ice machine was and found desk clerk earbuds listening to music. So so mad we paid this much for a dumpy room. Booked thru 3rd party and was charged addtl $35 resort fee when we arrived. I don't know how the other ratings could be honest. Will... More

Only got to stay over night while passing through. From check in to check out, the staff and facilities are top notch! Clean, plenty of restaurants , bars, and family fun right on the grounds. If golf is your thing, the course is right out your door and beautiful. Will definately return for a longer stay!

This was suppose to be a great family getaway and turned out to be awful. We thought that by renting their most expensive accommodations at the Sandestin directly we would be treated top notch. We stayed at the Bahia Penthouse and in return was offered with little and/or no amenities. Their tram service is terrible constantly missing their stops. When... More

We loved staying at this resort. We stayed for a week as two families of four (so 8 total) and rented a three bedroom, two-bath condo. We booked through a travel agent and requested Beachside II. When we arrived we were not only given that, but on the 18th floor with a huge wrapping balcony. Condo was clean and updated.... More

I enjoyed my stay here at Sandestin at Baytowne Wharf, staying in the Pilot House, but I can't exactly call it a resort. We checked in and we were given the keys to an "efficiency with 2 queen beds." It was a first floor room with no patio and just two beds, bathroom, with little kitchenette (fridge/microwave/sink). So small--I don't... More

Loved this place! The location was very convenient to restaurants and shopping! Rick Hughes in the engineering department even took us on a private tour of the resort and went above and beyond to help us have a wonderful trip!

The hotel is right next to Destin (5 minutes drive), so we are close to all the attractions, but we can also choose to stay in Sandestin and avoid all the traffic. The hotel is a large complex with different sections. We choose to stay in a condo five-minute walk to the beach. Beautiful beach. The resort has a shuttle... More

We had to pull meeting together last minute, one call to Sandestin to Luis Garcia and Dwayne Johnson and they took care of everything. Great rooms, great meeting room, the best service from the staff setting up the meeting room to the meals, but the great attitude of everyone on the resort was fantastic. Thank you so much Sandestin for... More

In all my years, this is the first "Terrible" review I have ever written and it is well deserving. First, this is not a resort it is a crappy time-share place. Our room was tiny, crowded and furnished with barely any furniture. The beds were old and one creaked every time you moved. The cleaning service was non-existent or hit... More
