This is our 2nd time staying here and we love it every time!! Service is excellent, staff, food is good. The environment and spa is amazing! Pools abs beach are excellent! We will be back again soon!

Absolutely beautiful facility, with lovely pools & a gorgeous, clean, white sand private beach. Every employee was so kind & helpful, from the front desk working to get our room ready early, to the bellhops always available to assist, to the beach employees being so knowledgeable & helpful. We really enjoyed paddleboarding, riding bikes, and kayaking. We were able to kayak with dolphins swimming right beside us!! Our room was clean upon arrival & the room service was excellent at cleaning our room each day. Lovely touches such as complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby every morning & fruit infused water poolside made our stay that much more enjoyable. The spa was phenomenal too, with experienced estheticians and masseuses, an amazing sauna & hot tub, and a relaxing wait area. The Primrose was delicious for dinner, but I’d love to see more menu options at Horizons. I can’t say enough good things about this resort. Our stay was perfect and we absolutely intend to return!

The rooms are lovely and spotless. Primrose had fabulous food and cocktails. The beach is stunning and the pools are beautiful. Destin Commons is within walking distance and has fantastic shopping and restaurants or enjoy a scenic bike ride around town. Can’t wait to come back to this resort!

The private beach and service was amazing

We were overwhelmed with how friendly and helpful every single employee was to us.

The food was delicious, the staff was very friendly, and the rooms were super clean. We visited during hurricane sally and left a night before we were supposed to. The hotel was not very accommodating when we were forced to stay an extra several days. Also wished the Coffee Café would have been one later then 3pm.

The resort itself was very nice but everything was extremely expensive and they charge a nightly resort fee and parking fee even if you want to self park. Overall it was nice but way too expensive for what it is.

Beautiful property, nice rooms, and wonderful friendly service! We had dinner and breakfast at the Primrose restaurant which was delicious and the staff was excellent!

The Henderson was amazing. Staff and service was excellent. Food was delicious. Pool was beautiful. What else do you need to hear. Go!

Good property. Keep in mind it isn’t actually on the beach, which I don’t think I realized until checking in! Overall service was great and food was good. Views are beautiful.

The view was very good, the pools were beautiful, and the food was amazing
