We spent the month of February at the Sandestin Beach and golf resort. This resort is huge with plenty of options to entertain you and your guests. There are a number of rental agencies in Sandestin. I would strongly suggest using the Sandestin Beach and golf resort directly. They include perks such as free tram service throughout the resort, free 4 hour daily bike rental, free kayak rentals and excellent customer service from the welcome centre. If you enjoyed your stay and are inclined to purchase a property, visit Sheryl Johnston at the Sandestin Real Estate office in the welcome centre. She is a real gem. Wonderful personality and superior customer service! The beach in Sandestin is the best we have experienced anywhere. Most importantly we felt safe and secure everywhere throughout the resort. Baytowne Village is a fantastic place for bars and restaurants.

Hotel's Favorite
Can't say enough about Sandestin Resort and their lodging and facilities. First, the accommodations were clean and well maintained. I stayed at a hotel style room with fridge and microwave. It was at the Baytown Wharf area and walking distance to the tennis courts, restaurants and pool. There's great shopping and dining just a five minute drive away. The tennis facilities were fantastic and the pros put together a phenomenal 4 days of drills and round robin tennis. I am looking forward to heading to Sandestin next year.

We made a Spur-of-the-moment decison to spend the week-end in Sandestin with our two college-aged sons who had the week-end free. We were able to pick our rental unit online through the Sandestin web site and we LOVED it! A really nice New Orleans-style condo with balcony overlooking the shops/bars of Baytown Wharf. The resort was not very crowded and we really enjoyed walking around and exploring the property. All of the food and drinks we had were delicious and reasonably priced. All the staff we encountered at the resort, the shops, and the restaurants were enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. We loved sitting on the balcony and watching the world go by. My two sons were not bored and had a great week-end. Even though it was the middle of winter, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will come back again soon.

This was our first time staying at the Sandestin Golf Resort. We have stayed in Destin before and were looking for a place to stay and play golf during our Thanksgiving break. The resort did not disappoint. It was quiet, family friendly, and perfect mid 60s-mid 70 degree weather to enjoy golf. We stayed at Osprey Pointe and fit our family of 5 (4 adults, 1 child) comfortably. Our unit was spacious, clean, private, and had spectacular views of the bay. Just a short drive up to the wharf for shopping/eating, or to the beach access for white sugar sand, emerald waves, and gorgeous sunsets. We recommend the Beach House and the Surf Hut for eats on beach, the pizzeria in Baytowne Wharf was delicious and had great drinks, and The Udder Side ice cream was our fav dessert. The Grand Boulevard shopping center is on property, and it is very walk/jog/bike friendly throughout the neighborhood. We golfed the Links and Baytowne and both were pleasant experiences. All staff on the resort and at the golf clubs were friendly and helpful. The welcome center were always quick to answer any wuestions i had by text. We will definitely be back.

The resort main lobby reminded me of an old college dormitory. There are no frills and it’s very spartan. There’s a small bar at one end that was closed at checkin (and remained closed for my 3-day stay). The room was a 5 minute walk from the lobby in a completely separate building. The room’s decor was an afterthought. The bed was tilted off the wall (guessing it slid over the tile floor). There was sand covering the coffee table. The iron was broken, there was a rust-colored stain on some tiles in the bathroom and nowhere to put clothes. (I lived out of the suitcase - again - it seemed like a college dorm). The gym consists of a few treadmills, a combined weights machine and a few dumbbells. (If you need a water - it’s $2 and the credit card slot doesn’t work). I tried complaining but to who? The lobby isn’t manned 24/7. You need to call the main-main lobby # (which isn’t near the Sandestin Resort lobby). Regardless, it didn’t help as they knew nothing of who to call for the Sandestin Resort. I travel a lot for work - this hotel was the worst stay I’ve had yet. It was comparable to a motor inn (but that atleast is manned all day/all night). Seek other options!!!

Great beach chair service! My sister in law left her credit card wallet one afternoon and didn’t realize it until late the next day. John and Cole had found it and kept it for her.It’s so nice to know there are still honest people in the world. Thank you so much!

There was a wonderful weekend spent during the Labor day holiday . Nice room and quiet place ! I had a beautiful bay view and I felt very well in this resort. Because it is not in hotel system , people do not expect breakfast and housekeeper . In complex are a lots of restaurants and places o eat and have . It is true the price is higher then a regular hotel but the conditions are different too . For my family it was wonderful and I recommend it but everyone must be prepared for a full wallet .

Would not return due to these reasons - INFLEXIBLE CANCELLATION POLICY We were forced to drive through Hurricane Idalia because Sandestin wouldn’t consider moving our reservation to the following week. DAMP and SMELLY ROOMS This includes the sheets and pillows. We couldn’t wait to leave! UNCOMFORTABLE FURNISHiNGS and TOILET The toilet felt like it was only 12 inches off the floor.. Definitely requires renovation. One of the few positives was the fitness center which was very well equipped. even if it means driving through a hurricane to get there! Found our unit to be very damp as it it hadn’t been used for awhile. Had to put on the heat to help dry the unit even though it was 91 degrees outside! Prices for everything from food to items in the Golf Pro Shop were very high - even though it was off season. For your money there are likely better accommodations.

We traveled to the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort for a much-needed vacation. On 8/12/13 and 8/13/13, we visited the beach. Two couples spent more than $200 to rent beach chairs for two days at the beach. Well… Here's where things went awry. On 8/13/23, one of the visitors decided to set up a tent in front of our beach chairs. Brock E. (Beach Manager) requested that the guest either take down the tent or relocate it to the third row where tent location is required. The visitor declined to relocate his tent. Beach security and the Sheriff were called due to guest refusal to adhere to an ordinance in moving his tent. The beachgoer indicated to the sheriff that there was no one behind him. Unbelievable!!! Behind him were four beachgoers. I believe this beachgoer truly believed that our beach experience was less essential than his and was willing to risk receiving a ticket because of it. THANK YOU, BROCK, for ensuring that Sandestin values every guest's experience! Superior customer service! Sandestin homes rentals are affordable, clean, and offer great service!!! Included pics of the tent with review.
