My husband & I spent Jan. 10 - 13 at HPI for our 15th anniversary. In a word: WONDERFUL!!
We were welcomed warmly by Ryan, the Innkeeper, and Tammy. Check-in was a breeze. After a brief tour (mini fridge in the lobby w/water, soft drinks, candy bars, board games, dvd library, book of menus for local restaurants, deck & beach access points, etc), we went to our room, #212 Executive. Roomy and immaculate with a gorgeous view of the Gulf. A lovely tray with fresh rose spray, wine & grapes greeted us...a very elegant touch! Housekeeping left chocolates on the pillow each day after they cleaned (thank you, ladies!!).
The food: Amazing! Breakfast each day was wonderful...be sure to try the New Orleans grillades & grits. Thanks to Chef Greg & Alan who took good care of us each a.m. We enjoyed our Anniversary Dinner at Beachwalk: outstanding! My husband had the sea bass while I had the surf & turf. Perfectly chilled champagne, steak cooked to perfection, flaky fish. Our server, Wade, was very knowledgeable about the menu, recommended a fine wine and provided us with excellent service. We enjoyed an outstanding meal.
Due to the unusually cool weather during our visit, the daily Happy Hour (held on the deck at 3:30 - 4:30 daily) was held indoors...but just as enjoyable!
Only one suggestion: strengthen the wi-fi signal.
It was a fantastic 1st trip to the Emerald Coast! Be sure to visit Harbour Walk and Baytowne in Sandestin. Nice shops, etc.
We can't wait to return to the lovely beaches of Destin and to HPI!
