I was a little intimidated by the reviews when I was originally booking at this hotel, but once we got there it really wasn't a bad place to stay at all. I'm glad we gave it a chance. For what we paid you definitely can not beat that price considering the location. We were traveling with children so of couse we were looking for a good deal though we didn't want to stay at some nasty hotel either. We got pretty much exactly what we were looking for. The room was very clean and I had no problem with anything working incorrectly. The pool was very nice and looked just like the picture on the Internet. I ran into the maid service on about 3 different occasions and had no problems getting towels. And yes it is far from the main check in, I'll give you that. But once you check in you really have no reason to go back to the main check in anyway. I did find it weird that there was no front desk service in the hotel itself and originally made me kind of nervous for safety reasons. Once we got settled in it didn't bother me at all. If I thought for 1 minute that my family was unsafe we would of left right away. and yes the place is very large but that's with any resort , it has that large resort feel to it. These reviews were making it sound like the beach was miles and miles away. It took about 7 minutes to get in the vehicle and drive to the beach. We just had to cross over the highway to the other side of Sandestin, follow the sign, and the beach was right there. Not that hard. I think that some people that left these reviews were a little spoiled. But coming from our upper middle class family this place was just fine. Based off of our experience from this past weekend I would recommend friends to stay.
