If you want a good spot on the beach, you must get up early every morning to out maneuver the rude beach service who is taking the premium spots. This and an average condo means find another spot.

I like this place. It has everything one needs in a resort from restaurants to bars to pools and tennis. Stayed 3 nights and didn't leave the property. No need to leave. The meeting facilities were centrally located and pretty nice. There are several hotel buildings on the property where it looks like people own as well as rent. I stayed in the Pilot House. Room wasn't that great. Small with no desk or chair. Tiny TV and small closet. Wasn't impressed with the room at all. I'm sure there are nicer rooms than the one I got. However, it was close to restaurants and bars so I spent little time in the room. I would go back again. I wouldn't stay in that building again but the resort is nice.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Baytowne Wharf for a much needed relaxing get-away. As repeat guests, we always anticipate which unit we will be staying in and we were not disappointed! It was a very well appointed one-bedroom with a great patio opening right onto the main "street" of Baytowne. The only negative of the entire stay wsa that the shuttle bus did not run until 3:00 p.m. so we had to take our car out when we wanted to venture outside of Baytowne. Bummer - since the shuttle bus is one of the great features of the Sandestin experience.

Dispite the fact that we rolled into town with a tremendous truckload of centerpieces for the SITE-SE Conference (and frankly looked like the Beverly hillbillies), your staff was extraordinarily attentive and helpful in unloading, set-up and logistics for the entire 3-day event. I want to especially applaud Keri at the front desk and Dan the Banquet Assis. Manager for their ability to make it all happen flawlessly- Bravo to Sandestin and these delightful folks!

It was my first time visit here with my family. We enjoyed this place except the weather (winter season). The staffs were cool, particularly Brian who kindly explained everything at the front desk at our arriving date. The golf courses are nice, too. But hope Sandestin allow small pet for family cause pets are also members of family...Thanks for free wireless!

We were married recently and only had two days for a brief honeymoon. Sandestin Resort was approximately two hours from our home and we had never been there. Everything at the resort and with the Suite was perfect. It felt like we were a million miles from home. You never have to leave the resort. The biking and hiking within natural areas on the resort was wonderful and the facility and staff are great.

We stay at 2+ times a year at this resort and I can't speak highly enough about the people, the food, the shopping and the accommodations! It's always clean and easy to get around on the tram....really don't need a car once you arrive. We've been to this resort at least 15 times over the last 5 1/2 years! We'll be back this month and I can't wait!
