I stayed at this resort for a work conference the week of 3/9.

The facilities are nice. The staff was nice. My room was nice.

I was overall really impressed with my stay.

Things I liked:
heated pool
close to the beach
secure parking
Pizza Hut by the pool
Drinks by the pool

Ive stayed at condos throughout this area numerous time and the only thing this resort lacks is a kitchen in each room. Although they do have a small fridge and microwave!

Constructive criticism: my tv remote did not work and the front desk was hard to get on the phone - they didnt answer twice.

Would i go back? yes

Room Tip: all rooms have a balcony i heard. My blacony overlooked another condos roof and the ocean.

This is a great hotel with great rooms. We were on the third floor with a partial view of the ocean. The beds were so comfy and the beach is awesome. Enjoyed 2 days in the spa which were also great. We will be back again!!

This is the best value in all of Destin. The property is fabulous, the beach is beautiful and the amenities are second to none in Destin. The proximity to shopping and all that Destin has to offer you can not do better that the Hilton Sandestin Property. I just wish I had time during the summer months to go back when the water is warmer.

Wonderful view, convenient to good dining choices and shopping choices. There are any good golf and running choices on the property as well as a great ocean view and beach. The shuttle service to the adjoin properties is convenient and easy to use. I would highly recommend this hotel - great service and good value.

The Hilton is tucked away off of Hwy 98 which is nice. The hotel itself is older and in need of an upgrade but the location is perfect. The beach and area are amazing and if your looking for the sugar white sands and blue green emerald water of the gulf this is a great spot. The Destin and San Destin outlet malls are less than an 30minute away.

Hotel was very nice. Staff was very friendly and helful. Kids had a ball on their spring break. Would def stay here again. Only complaint was indoor pool floor was very slippery. Saw multiple people slip and fall or almost fall.

Picked a wrong week to stay here (3/2-3/8). Since it wasn't as busy yet all of the restaurants had sporatic hours and closed whenever they felt like it. Some days we could get lunch at 2:00, some days everything was closed well before then leaving us no choice but to order room service. Room service food was mediocre and priced too high for the quality. When there was an issue checking in our room (we paid for a full ocean view but only recieved a partial view) the staff member we talked to tried to put us in another partial view? Luckily the manager was standing nearby and helped us. Some of the staff seemed new or inexperienced, but if you talked to the right ones they were helpful (We found out a room ending in a 16 or 17 has the best view). A perk is taking the free shuttle to Baytowne Warf (check out Rum Runners for dueling pianos at 9:00pm!). However, one rainy cold evening trying to catch a ride back to the resort we saw the shuttle drive by us twice not even bothering to stop and pick us up. Being cold and miserable waiting, we jumped in a taxi only to find out a 2 mile ride back to Hilton was 20$ plus tip! Don't ever take a taxi in Destin! We were extrememly upset because we wouldn't have taken a taxi if the shuttle stopped like it should have. After talking to a Hilton staff that could care less ("Don't ever take a taxi in Destin, they scam you"! How are we supposed to know, we're tourists!? He also gave us the shuttle phone# to complain. Isn't that the job of the Hilton who contracts this company?) Finally after talking to the manager, they apologized and gave us a free breakfast buffet to Sandcastles. Also, the biggest thing we wish we knew early on in our vacation is that the shuttle can also take you to the Grand Boulevard a few miles away and there is a Publix where you can stock up on groceries and beer/liquor (the Hilton never mentioned that there was a grocery close by, probably so we thought our only choice was to have to eat their high priced resort food and drinks). Sleep quality wasn't the greatest. The beds were far too soft and I could feel every turn and move of my husband sleeping next to me. The best part of this resort is the location is great, and the beaches are beautiful. My husband and I will come back to Destin in the future, but we had too many things that happened to us that took away from our experience staying at the Hilton so we will likely look to stay somewhere else.

Dear Blondiescore,

I am sorry to hear your stay with us did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately, during your stay the weather was either rainy, cold or windy which did cause us to close two of our seven dining venues. However, I am surprised to hear that you were not able to have lunch as we serve the same menu items inside of our newly renovated lounge.
I hope you and your husband will reconsider staying with us in the near future. If so, I would highly recommend perusing through our guest directory, available in every guest room or visit our Concierge & Activities Desk for recommendations and other options when the weather is not ideal for the beach. Our area offers a verity of options and activities.

Gary Brielmayer
