“Great place to stay in Destin.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We have stayed at this hotel now for the past 8 years. And every single time we have come, it has been a great experience. The location of the hotel is wonderful. Right on the beach and the people who work there have been there for a long time. We recognize many of the same folks each time we return. We also enjoy our breakfast at the hotel dining room each day. Food is always fresh, made to order and the service couldn't be better. The rooms are updated and spacious. Especially the junior suites. They are ideal for young children. We will always choose to stay at Hilton Sandestin because it's far away enough from Destin and the hustle and bustle of this little town, yet close enough to all the amenities of fine shopping and dining. We love staying here and have made so many family memories. Great place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone. The only reason I don't give it the highest rating is because there is ALWAYS room for improvement...

Room Tip: I'd opt for a Junior Suite.

Pros:
1. Beautiful hotel, beach, ocean
2. Friendly staff
3. Kids Crew available so you can have a night alone
4. Great fishing trip with Captain Mike at shallowwaterexpeditions.com
5. Tons of restaurants and shops nearby
Cons:
1. Expensive (but worth it)
2. Heavy traffic (but it's spring break)
3. Slow elevators with long waits
4. Hilton charges daily for self-parking which should be free
5. Only bell boys allowed to use luggage carts
6. Still cold this time of year (highs only in the 60s and windy)
7. Ocean is ice cold but hotel has indoor pool/hot tub

Room Tip: Stay in the tower and request bunk beds for the kids. Reserve your umbrella/canopy and chairs early...

I highly recommend this hotel/resort - it exceeded our expectations and we found nothing wrong with the accommodations: room was clean, bed was extremely comfortable, staff was professional and went out of their way to see that our needs were met.

This place is so fancy and has amazing employees, even the housekeepers were super friendly and nice! The indoor pool and hottub was beautiful and open until 2am!! Even the rooms with a "partial view" allow you to see the beach, white sand, and emerald waters! The amenities are top notch and even the shampoo/conditioner/lotion smelled so good! VERY pleased with this place!

We had never been to Destin, but heard it was amazing. Booked the Hilton on a government rate, about $85 in off season. Asked for an ocean view when booking. When we arrived I asked about the ocean view room, desk clerk said it was only a partial view, but she was very helpful in upgrading us to a full ocean view room. The room was amazing! We had a King bed and there was also a set of bunk beds seperate from where the King bed was that had its own TV. We ordered room service and it was great, and reasonably priced! Very clean hotel!!! Before we even left the property we were planning our next trip! We love this place!

This hotel has everything you need. Right on the beach. Only complaints were the fact that the complementary in-room coffee wasn't replaced a couple of times and our pillows were too thin. Other than that, it was a great stay.

Great experience! Kudos go out to Emily and Chris, they both show true hospitality and are most welcoming to the spa. The facility itself is well appointed, clean and welcoming.
If you are looking for a spa in the San Destin area this is a great choice. Great value
