Courtyard by Marriott Sandestin at Grand Boulevard

Reviewed December 26, 2012

We stayed here on an overnight stop, it was easy to find right off the boulevard. The employees at the reception desk were very freindly and helpful. Our room was clean and nice, this Hotel was painted with bright colors and cheerful. There was a restaurant within walking distance we walked to for dinner. The only one downfall, if you can really call it that, was the parking was tight. We have a big truck and it was kind of hard manuvering around. A+ we would stay again if we are in the area.

We arrived in Destin sooner than anticipated and found that a night at the Courtyard was far less expansive than an extra night at the Sandestin Resort. The lobby is spacious and has been renovated to include the trademark giant touchscreen TV, ample seating and a bistro with beverages and snacks for sale. The room included a flat screen TV, ample power outlets for charging electrical devices and free Wi Fi which tested at almost 5 Mbps, more than fast enough for most uses. There are several restaurants nearby (including an Applebee's right across the parking lot but it's worth the short drive to eat elsewhere). Staying at hotel allows you to access the entire Sandestin Resort property. You are provided a vehicle hang tag at check-in which is used at the resort entry points. As other reviewers have noted, the elevator service is slow and we used the stairs more than once as an alternative. With so many restaurants nearby we passed on purchasing breakfast on site in the morning.

We have visited Destin many times but this was our first stay at Courtyard. We were greeted by a friendly and helpful staff. Our room was comfortable and clean. The hotel is close to shopping and restaurants in Sandestin, either on Grand Avenue or back in Baytowne. We walked back to The Broken Egg in Baytowne for breakfast in the morning and it only took about 10 minutes to get there and the walk is through lovely wooded areas bordering the golf course. The lobby is large and nicely decorated with convenient access to computers.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 2nd floor and very quiet. Elevators are not very fast so a lower floor is prefe...

I was here for a weekend family getaway. It wasn't my first choice because it is located a fair distance from downtown Destin, which is where most of the activities that interest me were at. However, one of the rooms was paid for by points so, there we went. I got lucky; Their military discount is VERY nice. Moving on...

The staff was very friendly and check-in took all of 3 minutes. We hadn't booked the rooms together, but they were able to give us rooms directly across from each other. The rooms themselves were spacious, clean, and well maintained. As other reviewers have stated, the elevators can be annoyingly slow. We all gave up on them when I was able to consistently beat the rest of my family to the car or back to the room by more than a minute by taking the stairs (3rd floor).

Otherwise, this is a very nice place. The pool and hot tub were effectively deserted each time we used them. The lighting in both shifted color slowly during night time. It's a nice touch. The landscaping is exactly what I had anticipated. Palm trees, plenty of tables in little alcoves for some privacy, and a maze of a parking lot. I never tried the breakfast buffet, but the others did. They said it was pretty good, no more, no less. The shopping in the Sandestin resort complex is higher in price than at the outlets closer to downtown Destin. The private beach was nice too. Not busy at all, but I suspect that's due to the time of year that we were there. I didn't spend much time in the hotel because I kept busy, but I'd definitely consider staying there again.

Elevators are ridiculously slow. This happens when you have 5 stories and use hydraulic elevators. Eggs were rubbery, hash browns were two days old, and the accents of the staff made it very difficult to understand them.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Hotel room was clean and neat and cozy. The staff was helpful. The breakfast was great. We had a free breakfast voucher from the Taste of The Beach package, so it all worked out. Eggs were cooked to order and the wait staff was very great. The pool is very nice the way it lights up. I was impressed w/ my stay. Great access to Sandestin Beach Resort. We had fun at the night clubs at the resort. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room was on the high floor facing the pool. No traffic noise.

The carpet had a foot long tear that was clearly visible when you enter the room. However, friendly front desk and breakfast waitresses made up for it. The breakfast buffet was pretty good. A pass for the sandestin resort beach is included.
