Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

Enjoyed our stay. Very nice vacation community with alot of activities. Only issue I had with my actual unit was the dryer did not dry towels for some reason. Other than that it was a pleasurable stay.

We had a 4th of July getaway and we stayed at a nice unit at Luau 2 tower. We overlooked the pool and could see beautiful sunsets. The beach was over populated right at the resort access point, but walking down a ways it was relaxing.

The customer service here was much less than expected for the price I paid. The check in process was a complete mess and took about 30 minutes. I maintained my patience because we were on vacation but I could not believe how long it took to get our room situated. Lady at front desk had no idea how to check us in and would not directly ask me questions about information she needed. There is no jacuzzi and the pool on the main website and advertisements is not for use of any paying customer...depends on how much you pay for room. The lady on the telephone was extremely rude when I asked about it. Children's arcade was closed without notice and employee said they'd reopen at 4pm...it did not. We had been waiting out front of arcade from 930-1000 waiting for it to open. Pool we were allowed to use was dirty and no towels were to be found! I could go on and on but its just not worth the time or money. I was very disappointed and will not be recommending or coming back to this hotel ever.

Rented two rooms. One had a “squatter” in it. That’s what I call it because I was given the key to this room when we arrived and when I opened the door, clothes were everywhere and the TV was on. I was told by at least 4 people that this person was not supposed to be there (from housekeeping, to the head of housekeeping to the front desk to the manager of the front desk). Each told me they would handle it, yet we never saw anyone knock on the door! We know this because instead of having adjoining rooms as promised, we ended up on either side of this “squatter” room. It was Sketchy to say the least! In fact the “squatter” was still there when we left a week later! We had asked for two rooms with two double beds. Since our other room was obviously taken, we ended up with a king and a roll-away for my teenage son. They had apparently “overbooked” Spring Break and could not Accommodate us with another room with two Double beds!! The rooms felt old and in need of an update. AND HERE IS THE FINAL KICKER!! Read the fine print!! Apparently, it says daily room cleaning, trash can emptying and towel replacement is not included!!! If you ask the staff, they are very friendly and will act as if they are horrified your room wasn’t cleaned! It is an ACT! Our room was cleaned only once during our entire 6 day stay!! Once!! It almost became comical as our fellow hall mates and Spring Breakers would Make a mad dash to grab towels as we would see staff walking down the hall!! Horrible!

So nice we didn’t want to leave. So much to do and not enough time. We must visit again.

We are 6 persons travel so booked this resort because of advertise. It says 3 rooms, 3king beds. But as i saw the rooms i was dissappointed very much. It was not 3 king beds. One king, one queen and bunker bed. I showed orbitz advertise anf my booking info. But receptionists said "we don't have, it's weird. sorry" again and again. Nice resort but not nice persons.

Was expecting a condo with a full kitchen. We got a hotel style room, definitely not expecting that for the PRICE that we paid.

Very nice property but at first it was overwhelming. Coming in at Midnight though was hard to navigate to find our villa. Property maps should have more details (like street names). Helpful staff with lts of ammenities for the guests.

Room was nice, good view of the gulf and clean, but what was really exceptional was the overall friendliness of resort workers. Have been to other resorts where it felt like you were intruding in their world
