“Above average Courtyard”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

I stayed here for two nights while visiting family in the area. The location is adjacent to the Sandestin Resort and a major highend outdoor shopping complex within walking distance. While the traffic in the surrounding area is heavy during the summer, it is far enough away from the outlet mall about two miles away. The hotel is not on the beach, but there are several local parks on the beach within a few minutes drive.

This hotel is very well kept and maintained and appears to have had a recent renovation as all the funiture and carpeting looked brand new. The facility was very clean and maintained indoors and outdoors. The lobby has plenty of seating areas to relax and offers a number of books to read. There is a nice outdoor pool with adequate seating and shade. There is also a hottub and separate kiddy pool.

The staff here was very friendly and accomodating, and I hope that I have many opportunities to stay here in the future.

Thank you ATLtraveler766! I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us! I think our location is perfect too - we are just far enough away from the hustle and bustle to not be bogged down by bumper to bumper traffic. But we are still close enough to access all of Destin's wonderful offerings! I am glad that our team was able to take great care of you and we can't wait to have you stay with us again!

Our family and I were searching for a nice place to stay in SanDestin Florida for the 4th of July. Checking around for hotels based upon past reviews we chose this one. The Courtyard Marriott SanDestin delivered. We were worried there wouldn’t be anything available but Kina was able to get us into a great room. It had a great location - right on the Golf Couse, and is very modern, clean and fresh. The hotel staff was great. They were very friendly and helpful, thank you so much Kina especially for going above and beyond accommodating our family on short notice. You really made our stay. We just got back from our trip, we all agreed this hotel was our favorite and we had to review it.

Thank you so much for choosing to spend 4th of July with us! Our beautiful beaches and great family activities make the Destin area the ideal spot to vacation for this holiday and I appreciate that you picked our hotel to be your home away from home! Kina is an amazing front desk agent and a true team player, I am not surprised at all that she was instrumental in making your stay a memorable one. I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience and recognize Kina for her service. I look forward to welcoming you back next year for Independence Day (if not sooner)!

This hotel is great. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are immaculate and good sized. The hotel, even though it is next to a road, is very quiet - little noise between rooms either. Bed comfy; shower good. The pool area is nicely decorated (not your standard Courtyard pool) with a separated baby pool and even lights that change color at night. It was packed but yet everyone loved playing together in the water. All clean with ample towels.

The hotel is not next to the beach but it is a short drive away. Next to the hotel is an Applebees and a shopping center with higher end restaurants, shops, and theater.

The only negative is the air conditioner in the room is quite loud. In the summer it is too stuffy to do without. Also there is no in-room safe. But these are minor distractions and I would stay at this place again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back have a better view.

My family and I just visited Destin...one of our favorite spots to go! We stayed at the Courtyard Sandestin this go round and everything was amazing! Check-in was easy and Lyza was very attentive and recommended different places and things to do while we were there. My daughter loved the pool. It was rarely ever crowded and she was able to have a good time. The rooms was spacious and the staff was very friendly. Oh and let's talk about the bed....COMFORTABLE & COZY!!! The location is convenient to shopping and food. Very nice hotel at a great rate! Everything was easy breezy! Would definitely return!

First, we should be clear that if your most important feature on your Sandestin/Destin vacation is direct beach access from your hotel, this is not the place to stay. However, if you actually want to be just a bit removed, with beach access only a couple minutes and a road or two away, then this hotel will be just what you want. We were greeted by Angie who was not only pleasant but very knowledgeable and gave us all the information we needed to find and enjoy everything in the area. She and Riza surprised us with a lovely card and something special in our room after a brief mention that we were there for a special occasion. The room was spacious, clean well designed and very comfortable. Parking was never an issue and we were always within steps of the entry. The area is pleasant and peaceful, but allows you to reach the beaches, restaurants and entertainment within minutes. Wireless internet access if free and fast, and if you want it even faster, you can upgrade for a few dollars per day if you wish. Additionally, this hotel was one of the most reasonable in the area for the time period we picked, but you would never know it by the high quality and amenities. We loved the hotel and would absolutely stay there again and recommend it to anyone.

This is a great hotel with an affordable rate (compared to the area). The staff were all very friendly and the hotel was very clean. Overall I was very impressed with the quality, value, service and it is right down the road from numerous public beaches.
