Enjoyed our stay at the Hilton Sandestin. Nice room, comfortable bed, great view! Loved that we had a refrigerator with freezer and microwave in the room. We were there during Spring Break week so it was crowded and there were a lot of families, but that's it to be expected at that time and in that location. Fortunately we were miles away from the craziness of the "real" Destin spring break activities. Close to lots of great places to go and places to eat. Love, love, love that you can walk on the beautiful beach in the state park just to the east of the Sandestin property. One piece of advice - go to the local dollar store and buy cheap beach chairs for your visit. $45 A DAY for two chairs and an umbrella is really ridiculous!! Could have had another dinner at Seagar's restaurant for the price of the chairs and umbrella for the week! Had a great massage and facial at the Serenity spa. Our first visit to this area of Florida and we had a nice relaxing week.

Check in took 15 minutes per guest. So if you are third in line, that means 45 minutes standing and waiting. No sense of urgency by desk clerks.

Property is nice, from what I could see, but couldn't use the pool or beach because it was so crowded, and you weren't allowed to sit outside of property boundaries. Both indoor and outdoor pools filled with 12 and unders. Beach was 15 people deep. I have seen less-densely populated sardine cans.

Might be a nice place to visit on a Wednesday in the fall or winter when school is in season.

Room Tip: at another facility

This is a beautiful hotel in a nice gated community. When we checked in, the management had upgraded us for free because of my hilton honors status so that was great. We ended up in one of the suites in the east tower on the 10th floor with a beach view in the direction of sunset so that was perfect. The suite had two bunk beds (with their own TV) in the front section, and it would have been useful for families (though we did not need it). It had a nice little refrigerator that was empty so that you could bring your own drinks and snacks, and it had a microwave and a coffee maker. We went by a store on our first day and saved a fair amount that way. The pools and pool bar were very nice, and we enjoyed a couple of days using the beach service (including the drinks service on the beach - nice!!). Nothing is cheap, but it was worth it for a very relaxing vacation. One could easily just stay on the hotel property all trip, but the Donut Hole is nearby so you have to go there at least once for breakfast.

Room Tip: The east tower rooms with a view toward the pool also get to watch beautiful sunsets over the water. Our room was 1020, but I am not sure of the numbering system so ask.

This was our third time staying at this property. The location and amenities are what brings us back. The rooms are on the larger size for a hotel, providing plenty of space for a family of four. Our room had two double beds, a sleeper sofa, tv, small table with two chairs, a mini fridge and microwave and an area with bunk beds and it's own tv. We had an ocean and pool view which was awesome. There are two towers- the spa tower has 7 floors and the taller Emerald tower has 15 floors. There are two outdoor pools and an indoor pool, two hot tubs and a small baby pool. Pool/beach towels are provided. This resort is heavily used and staff does try their best to keep up. They are updating some of the floors with new carpet, paint etc. All the staff we came in contact with was friendly. There is a nice poolside bar/grill, a little snack bar with Pizza Hut pizza, ice cream, a sushi restaurant, a coffee shop serving Starbuck's coffee, an upscale steakhouse and regular resort restaurant all on site. The Hilton also has a nice gift shop, spa and fitness room. The Sandestin Resort area (which the Hilton is part of) is a contained and wonderful place to be- the Hilton is among various condos, bike path, a golf course, there is a little village called the Baytown Wharf with many restaurants, childrens activities and marina. Just a great place to vacation.

Before you read my review, I have a guide to which rooms you want:
Get a jr. Suite which is in the emerald tower. The other tower is nasty. DO NOT get a room on these floors: 2,3,5,9,14,15 because these floors have concrete blocks for railing which obstructs your views and means the balcony is dirtier. Also do not get a room with the number being 0-16 because they have a beach view which sounds good but it is not a good view, has smaller balconies, and a not as well layed out room. Also dont get a room with numbers 25-27 because they have a parking lot view.
The property is very well decorated, so why did I give it such a low rating. Here is my system:
Design and clenliness may recieve up to one star, and I gave them the star.
Location may recieve up to one star, and they got it. It is in an absoulutley wounderful location.
Value of on-property amenities up to one star. They failed here, there are pleanty of resteraunts etc. but, say you want a pot of coffee in the morning. It will cost you $30! When we decided to get some ice cream, it really wasnt very good.
Service up to two stars. The on-site service is pretty good, with the exception of the front desk. When I was sitting in the lobby to avoid a twelve dollar wifi charge (not uncomon) I watched so many people walk up to that desk excited, and leave very mad. Here's our example. We were going on a trip and we decided to contact the hotel to guarantee us a pool view room without a wind block. We had been using points to cover the trip tokeep costs down, when they told us that we had to pay $15 more a night to get a certain view. We gladly paid it knowing our past experiences here. When we got there, the people at the front desk indicated we had a pool view, and it isnt easy to tell what rooms are what because they don't just do evens on one side and odds on the other. They made us sign for the room until they told us our room number. 1411. Problem one, 14 has wind blocks and problem two, we requested a lower floor, but at least we had a pool view right? Wrong! We get up there only to find out that it was the wrong view. So ok, we can call the front desk to fix this. After explaining to them that this is why we are gold Marriott and silver Hilton, they finally aggreed to move us the next day. Lovely, we get to cut our relax time down only to add more stress time. But whatever. They said that they would call us as soon as it was ready. Ok thats fine. The maid ends up telling us that our room has been ready. So we go down to the front desk only to get no sir we can't verify that. So while we are stuck downstairs, mom is upstairs, all by herself, moving bags to this room with no keys to either one. Thank you to the maids for letting her in. So we decide to get some starbucks coffee. It was a joke! One inexperienced lady making the coffee and running the shop all by herself with a huge line. So forget that. Finally we get our room.
