We re-entered post covid vacation life at Embarc in Sandestin. There were a few concerns with the room and Anthony, one of the managers, made everything PERFECT! Anthony's professional explanations and actions made for a great vacation. Put Anthony in charge of communication and the upcoming changes!!!!

I was a little apprehensive about coming here after reading some negative reviews, but now that I’ve come here I can honestly say that anyone who posts anything negative is probably either a Karen or someone who doesn’t want you to come here, because they want to keep this little gem all to themselves. I’ve stayed at Hyatt’s , Marriott’s and other high end vacation exchange resorts. I’d put this one up there with the best. As good of service as you would expect at a Marriott and vastly superior than Hyatt. Even though the resort is not on the beach ( convenient free shuttle bus takes you to beach) the Bay views are spectacular, with beautiful swimming pools and immaculate grounds. The rooms are up to date , very clean and spacious. Highly recommend!

First time venturing out since all the COVID craziness and Enbarc Sandestin is just what we were looking for. Wonderful resort area with lots of outdoor eating and walking that's close to the beach and the Grande Boulevard shopping area. The one bedroom room is very spacious. The bed is very comfortable. I suppose as an Interval World Elite tier resort it could be "plusher" inside, but overall couldn't be happier with the resort or the surrounding area. We're not difficult people to please :)

Nice resort in an awesome location we loved loved the private gated community full with golf courses and amenities like the Baytowne Wharf and Marina and Jolee island right out back. The resort was a small property so it was not as busy as some larger resorts. We had the entire pool area to ourself one night felt like a private back yard escape. The furniture looks a bit dated in the pictures but the whole place is going for the retro feel so it is intentional. Will definitely stay again when in The Destin Area.
