The Le Ciel building of the Sandestin Resort offers "Resort Quality" stays for less money than the main building. "Resort", according to the manager, means NO HOUSEKEEPING, NO ROOM SERVICE and the barest bones of a room. We had to PAY EXTRA for housekeeping!!! We had to change rooms three times to find a toliet that didn't have chipped paint on the seat and/or poorly constructed bathrooms. The manager explained that as a "resort' they did not have to provide hotel services. What????
While we looked over the water there was NO BEACH within walking distance. In fact, the "hotel" is located in a residential area that reminds me of Century Villiage where my grandmother used to live. So, if you want to know what it is like to live in a retirement community - go to Le Ciel.
However, my husband and I were on our first trip without children in 15 years and planned on a beautiful and romantic stay. Just the opposite. The room was like an off-highway motel. Believe me, if my husband had not been so short-sighted as to pay for the stay in advance, we would have left after the first 10 minutes.
