First of all, we wanted to share our experience and what we learned with you all so you can enjoy a negative-free experience.
When we were looking into booking a stay with Sandestin, there were many reviews ranging from excellent to bad online. All the bad ones had "hidden fees" as the main issue. We called the Sandestin Resort and asked them straight out what the "hidden fees" negative write-ups were all about. They explained that anyone booking with a third party company (i.e.: Southwest.com, travelocity, expedia, orbitz, priceline etc..) will not get the real price. Sandestin explained these third party companies are advertising a lower price to get you to book with them, but they do not include 12% of the cost, leaving that for when you check in. Just the kind of surprise you do NOT want when starting your vacation. If you book straight with Sandestin, then everything is included (parking, housekeeping, bikes, canoe, kayak, tennis, etc..) If you book outside (travel site) then you will be paying more when you get there. Sandestin is not the bad guy here, the third party companies are doing them a disservice (and the customer too) when they do not disclose this important info. With that said- here is the rest of the review...
A GREAT time was had! The resort was clean, everyone super friendly, we felt totally safe, walking at night, anywhere on the property. We stayed in the Le Ciel and it was nice, clean and had everything we needed. We loved the free 4 hrs a day bikes, and used the walking and biking trails that go anywhere in the 2500 acre resort. We would definitely go back to Sandestin. The only thing we would change is maybe renting a cottage or small house for the same price as the hotel. We did not know enough about the property to look into this before we got there. But we would love to go back and enjoy ourselves again in the Sandestin Resort!
