Great place great staff. Very accommodating and has tons of great Golf!!!!

LIKES: The property is beautiful and well kept with manicured lawn. It's huge! I love that there's a marina with free kayaking.It also has a beautiful bayside wharf inside the property which is like a min amusement park. The beach is nice, clean and well maintained and only a 5-minute walk from our condo. DISLIKES: Poor customer service. The front desk at the registrration did not welcome me and did not smile the entire time. He was a little rude and lacked social skills. This is not a hotel but a condo association which is mostly owned by members. The units do not have phones so we had to use our own phone to request for more towels and an extra blanket which arrived too late. I requested the blanket the night before but did not arrive until the next day. Moreover, we didn't know how to call the front desk because the number was not provided to us initially nor was it provided inside the unit. I had to be creative by googling the number. The unit was nice but one of the chairs is broken. We had to pay extra to stay in the beach side area which was a rip off. There were no hand sanitizers at all anywhere on the property. Despite the vastness of the property, there are no restaurants but you have to go to the bayside wharf for that. However, there are plenty of restaurant choices outside within a 5-min drive

Wish our unit had been one of the renovated ones, but the property is lovely and full of amenities.

Location was good . Staff was friendly , but check in was delayed by 4 hours

It was amazing and the staff was very genuine! I will definitely be back!!!!!

This was the worst resort I have ever stayed at, poorly decorated room, uncomfortable beds, the worst pillows and mismatched linens, ... I can go on and on but I feel like it’s not worth my time. While the property is nice on the outside, the inside needs a major overhaul, everything is so outdated, even the machines in their miserable laundry room, that you need coins to operate. Never going back nor telling any of my friends about Sandestin golf and beach Resort.

The property was really nice but needs to be updated especially the rooms and bathrooms

Overall it was a nice place. For the price some of the rooms need major updating and upgrading. There werent many outlets for charging phones and other devices. Walls are thin you can hear every conversstion in the hallway. Beds were lumpy just not what i expected when your paying over 200 a night. however the grounds restaurants activities were awesome

The beach house was absolutely beautiful. We were situated right on the beach ! Will definitely return

this old and lack of maintenance with a musty smell

I like the idea of having just about everything on site

Everything was first class. The views were spectacular and the location was great.

What we liked about the property was the location. We could walk to the beach. The pool was great. Also it has a tram that would shuttle you to the different sections of the resort. The resort also had a golf course. The staff was courteous and professional.

Check-in procedure was poor, very slow. One agent checking in 3 people took 45 minutes, and they had an unattended station. Check-in was at a location 3 miles from the building where my room was. And, to get to it I was given incorrect directions by the guard at the entrance station. Poor communications. Room was OK, but not for the rate I paid. They also need to improve their campus map - it was poor for the size this resort is.

Our location was simply perfect between the beach and all the amenities the resort had to offer. With four adults in our party, we thoroughly enjoyed the spacious living arrangements. The view off of the balcony was the added bonus we were glad to enjoy daily.

Great enjoyed resort and room. Good staff............

Have been coming for years. Beautiful property, condos, beaches, bikes included, this one very close to Marina, but no full hotel services. Had to get towel and sheet replacements. No daily cleaning provided.
