Very clean updated rooms. Seems like every room has a great view of the gulf which is gorgeous! Tempting variety of pools & hot tubs. Fitness center is impressive & located in another building along with the spa. Several restaurants to choose from. Nice variety for breakfast. Easy to catch the shuttle to shopping & restaurants.

Room Tip: Keep in mind view for the sunset.

We stayed at the Sandestin Hilton last weekend and had a great experience. I have always thought the fall and winter were great times to visit the beach because of less crowds, less expense and better views. This hotel has clean, large rooms and many amenities to keep you busy in the off-season. The price is reasonable and the staff has time to be extra helpful. The weather was great for walking on the beach, the views (with dolphins swimming by) superb, and everyone is so much more friendly when not so busy. The hotel even has an indoor heated pool and hot tub if you so desire. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: First floor rooms with a beach view are great.

My wife and I were looking for a Thanksgiving getaway within driving distance of Baton Rouge and we chose the Hilton Sandestin, which was about a 5 1/2 hour drive.

The hotel staff bent over backwards to make sure our every need was met. The 2 pools are awesome and we never had a problem finding a perfect spot. Even at the end of November, it was still 75 degrees and sunny. The beach was very clean and beautiful and accessible....just a 5 minute walk from the hotel lobby.

The hotel itself and rooms were spotless.

There is a Sushi Chef on staff and I ate Spicy Tuna Roll's every day (very reasonably priced, too, just $10.). For TG dinner, they put on a full Thanksgiving feast which was amazing.

We did the breakfast buffet every morning, which was also amazing, I ate a ton of bacon, and they will make you fresh omelet's to order.

The only complaint I have was slow bar service. On day #1, there was only one bar open and only one bartender to service the entire hotel. Michelle seemed to wait on customers who were right in front of her rather than paying attention to who was there 1st, resulting in 20-minute waits for poolside cocktails. On day #2 they opened the outside bar as well, but single-bartender staffing for 10 guests at any given moment was pretty slow, too.

All-in-all, it was an amazing experience and we will definitely be back. I highly recommend it. 1st class treatment at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: The photo is a view from our room. Third floor, room #332.

Dear Baton Rouge Living,

I am delighted to hear that you and your wife enjoyed your stay with us here at the Hilton Sandestin Beach over the Thanksgiving holiday. Fortunately the weather also assisted with warm and clear skies during that weekend.

I do want to apologize for the slow service you experienced at our outside bar. We are typically closed in November outside but due to the nice weather we decide to open at the request of several guests. We did not anticipate the high demand we experienced. We will correct our short comings next year.

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and have the opportunity to host you again in the near future.

The Sandestin Hilton is always a great time... the hotel shows a little bit of age around the edges, as so many of the big old hotels on Florida beaches do -- but don't let that deter you. It's got everything you need on-site, and feels homey & broken-in like a great pair of slilppers. :)

Right on the beach with great food options and service. Very pricey but you get what you pay for and then some. I will come back any time the family wants to go to Florida Don't expect big waves but plenty to do with indoor outdoor pools hot tub full service bars and restaurants.

The Hilton Sandestin Golf Resort and Spa is a great place to stay at and its facilities are top-notch. The resort area is well setup and the grounds are pretty as the Hilton is in a gated community. From the welcome greeting to the checkout all the staff were super and tried hard to make my stay a welcomed vacation. The room was large and nicely equiped, quality furnishings throughout. The bistro for breakfast had many choices and great quality of food to choose from. The pool and hot tub area inside are well designed and during the bad weather a nice place to be but outside facities are also nice. The hotel is right on the beach and the beach area has a private feel to it. You have great views of the sunrise and sunset right from the hotel and your room. Plan on staying at this Hilton again!!
