“Simply perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2008

This is gotta be one of the best places in all of Destin to stay. We had a great time. The hotel is new, in excellent condition. The pool is plenty big and they also have a hot tub and kiddy pool. They also provide you with access to the private pool on the beach. They have a free breakfast and a free happy hour (6-8pm includes some food items, wine, and off name beer). The hotel staff were excellent, upgraded us to a 2 br suite for free. Another big benefit, they are in the Sandestin Complex, that means the free shuttle service is included that can take you to the beach, beach pool, shopping area, golf course, wharf and restaurant area, bike rental, or anywhere else on their property. This Sandestin resort area IS AWESOME! Plenty to do for all. I cant say enough about what a deal this is($150/night). Verry happy...

This is a great hotel to stay at. IT IS NOT ON THE BEACH. But minutes from it. Nice hotel - very clean - friendly staff - great FREE breakfast. FULL KITCHEN (not in every room) Rooms with out the full kitchen are only missing the oven. Perfect for the business traveler or the family on vacation. Good price for what you get in Destin.

  • Liked — The full kitchen
  • Disliked — not on the beach

Stayed 5 days and didn't want to leave. Great access to facilities and activities. 2 bedroom suite was very nice and the staff was friendly, but we especially enjoyed the other patrons who had sought shelter here from the winter. We could easily stay a few months here.

This is a slam dunk. Have no hesitations in staying at this property. Absolutely clean, well-decorated and well managed. Rooms are so nice, clean and comfortable. Seems very new. Granite countertops in bathroom and kitchen. Mon-Wed offers complimentary beer, wine and light dinner. This was very well attended and had a festive atmosphere...served in the lovely lobby area. All this AND pet friendly too.

The only suggestion I have is to get good directions. The address would not come up on the website, my car's nav system or on my map! It seems miles east of Destin in Sandestin...wherever that is! Maybe one of those locally referred to areas? There is also NO sign for the hotel, except what is on the building...and you don't see it until you've passed the turn in. This is NO reason not to stay there, however.

One other positive thing...you received all the privileges of the Sandestin Resort...a lovely, upscale vacation area. I received a $104/night AAA rate. Just great.

This hotel is absolutely recommended. Friendly staff, newly built, nice setting, pleasant interior, outstanding breakfast included (sausage, bacon, eggs, fruit, cereals, waffle baking machine, bread, bagels, muffins and so on), not close to a beach but close to a resort whose amenities can be used (golf, village, shopping, dining, hiking), great restaurants nearby, pets are welcome (not just tolerated) without weight limit, room size is above average. We paid $109 for the night and had a huge room with kitchen and living room area. Note that there's a $75 flat pet fee. We would go there again in an instance.

My wife and I booked this hotel for a night in Destin. We were traveling with our dog, so we were looking for a nice hotel that is pet-friendly. That’s exactly what we found. The property is new looking and beautiful, with comfortable rooms and good service. The only caveat is the $75 (the hotel reserves the right to charge up to $100), non-refundable pet fee. The fee applies to all pets, even fish. We booked through the Marriott website, and nowhere in the booking process are you informed about the fee. The sites main page just says, “Pet-friendly hotel in Destin, Florida with access to Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort, fees may apply.” I made the mistake of thinking that the “fees may apply” referred to access to the Resort. If you dig deeper into the site (which you don’t need to do in order to book a room), you’ll find that the fees are for pets, and there’s no “may” about it. If you’re staying several days, the fee is really no big deal. However, it turns a one-night stay from $104 (before tax) to $198 (after tax). And yes, you pay full taxes on the fee itself. I know that I should have read every word of the website, but I wish Marriott was more up-front about the fact that there is a non-negotiable pet fee.
